“Great for family trip”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

Our family of 4 stayed at the Sunshine Suites the 1st week of August. It is well-cared for and offers a small kitchen for those needing to store food, and wanting to prepare meals. The kitchen was a nice addition, but quite small. We opted out of preparing too many meals, but it was wonderful to be able to store perishables in a large fridge. The rooms are clean & the property is across the street from a fantastic stretch of Seven Mile Beach. The staff are very friendly & willing to help out. There is a small pool, although we chose to go to the beach every day and didn't use it at all. The fact that the Sunshine Grill is on site is a bonus - it is a great restaurant for casual meals. We did tire of the free continental breakfast, as it was very basic - bread, muffins, cereal & bananas most days. But, the option of paying for a hot breakfast was nice, and very affordable. We would recommend this to families wanting a kitchen facility, and those looking for a budget-friendly vacation in Grand Cayman.

Room Tip: We chose a one-bedroom King suite with a sofabed. The addition of a cot to this room made it very c...

After doing much research, I selected this hotel for our honeymoon and it was a great choice! Friendly staff and a great restaurant are some of the perks! It is close enough to the beach with just a short jot across the street. Convenient location and easy access to the bus/shuttle stops. Nicely kept grounds and clean room! Don’t expect anything too fancy though. This is a very laid back island and so is the hotel. When you go to the beach, be sure to ask for the free use of beach towels and chairs.

Such a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are clean, not a far walk to beach or car service and the best burgers on the Island !. So close to everything that we didnt get a car again. This was our 2nd visit and I can tell you this is our hotel of choice for us. We love the people that work there,so friendly and chipper. We had a wonderful time and we will be seeing them again next year !!

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip ( stayed at Rumpoint area before that). The check-in was pleasant and quick. They gave us bottled water while getting the key--which was nice and unexpected. The whole property was extremely clean and very attractive. They did have beach chairs which was a plus that you could take with you to the beaches. Some even had straps for carrying, which was good. All the chairs I looked at was in very good condition. This resort takes pride in what they offer. Yes, it is not on the beach but it is only a short walk. It was hard to cross the highway because of traffic----this I did not like. We had a car, so we usually went to Cemetery Beach instead of the beach across the street, BUT it was doable, you just had to be patient and usually someone would stop and let you cross the street.
They had a outside shower that you could rinse off before you went in to your unit. This was located by the sidewalk on the property when you walked back from the beach.
They were updated some rooms while we were there with new lamps, etc. Our room was very comfortable. We had a one bedroom on the ground floor. The bathroom was small.....a lot smaller than I liked but overall the room itself was good for the price. The air conditioner was louder than what I liked , especially when you were in the small seating area but once again not bad enough to switch rooms. The bed was comfortable and the linens were nice and fresh. For the value, compare to other places, it is one place you should consider without any hesitations.
The restaurant was also very good and it stayed busy at all times. I cannot say anything bad about the food or the service. Everything was good, and yes those little ice cream cones at the end of your meal is delicious. The hamburgers are probably the most popular item on the menu.
They also have chairs and hammocks located around the grounds area if you wish to sit outside and not be at the pool. Speaking of the pool, it is located right at the restaurant, so if you don't want to eat inside you can eat outside at the tables around the pool.
Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at the Sunshine Suites. I am sure if you had a problem, they would be willing to make it right. They are very proud of their property and they want you to enjoy being there..........that's my opinion anyway.

This was our fith time to Grand Cayman and the second visit to the Sunshine Suites, we enjoyed it immensly. The accomodation was clean and well maintained. The one small problem that we had with the TV was corrected very quickly. The restaurant food was good and reasonably priced. The computers and free internet access was a real bonus, enabling us to keep in touch with our family. The only negative was that our trip was only one week. Next year we hope to stay longer.

Have stayed at the Sunshine Suites after dining at the restaurant on a previous visit. Am a frequent visitor to Caymans for a combination of business, family and vacation.

I have say Sunshine Suites delivers on its promise of friendly service, clean well priced accommodation.

Staff more than accommodated a steady stream of family and friends staying over at my room and helped me through a couple of days of lost luggage and rescheduled flights with a 'what can we do to help ?' approach.

Their willingness to offer vacation package discounts, complimentary breakfast is what makes them the best deal on 7 mile beach. You have to walk across the street to get to the beach but for the difference in price it is a small inconvenience.Seven Mile beach is best enjoyed going mobile in that it is an open walking beach. Hotel properties permit you to traverse their beaches, walk up to their bar and grills to eat/drink and there are several good public beaches to hang out at if you so choose.

What differentiates Sunshine Suites from other hotels in its price range and star rating is the above noted service but especially its restaurant/bar. The fish tacos have won numerous 'Best of Caribbean' awards and they live up to there billing ! The rest of the menu is great as well and the bar actually is a fairly happening place at night. Add to this the convenience of a colocated strip mall with a liquor store and another chain of good restaurants - Eats, Legends and Yoshi Sushi and a nearby grocery store and you have all the essentials for a vacation on Caymans. There are other good restaurants and bars on the island but for those on a budget or on a business trip - the convenience of nearby, good, inexpensive options makes Sunshine Suites a great one stop shop.

It was our second time staying at Sunshine Suites (our first time was in 2008), and we will surely return again. It is a great place for a family stay or if you're budget conscious. The hotel has a helpful and friendly staff, it is very clean and nicely decorated. We are a family of four, including two children (ages 18 and 14). Our room included a kitchenette which enabled us to cook our own meals and save on eating out. The supermarket (Foster's) is a short walking distance from the hotel (approx. 1/4 mile). It is also great to have the Sunshine Grill right downstairs for the times we wanted to eat out. We suggest their fish tacos - they're great. They also provide free continental breakfast for hotel guests. When we wanted to enjoy a late-night swim, the pool near the Grill was a delight. The tiki torches, table lighting and the soft sounds of music coming from the Sunshine Grill made the swim even more enjoyable.

Another benefit of staying at Sunshine Suites was having Captain Marvins's shop and Big Daddy's down the block, making it easy to purchase snacks, drinks, sunscreen and tickets to Stingray City (which everyone should try - it's awesome). We booked our stay through Cayman Airlines under their Summer Splash program and received two free tickets to Stingray City. Having Eat's Cafe just around the corner is another bonus, as well as having Seven Mile beach just across the street and the bus stop (for trips to George Town for $2/person) on the corner. Also, one could cross the road and rent a car at the Marriott. Cost for rental is $35/day for a subcompact car. We did this during our first visit and drove to Rum Point and other parts of the island. Its was a nice excursion.

The kids love our vacations at Grand Cayman so much that we are thinking of making our trip and stay at Sunshine Suites a family tradition.
