“Excellent place to stay, great location”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The Sunshine Suites Resort is a great place to stay. Affordable, clean, great location across from 7 Mile Beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sunshine Suites is within walking distance to several places on the beach where snorkeling gear, sailboats, etc can be rented. There are several great restaurants within walking distance as well. The Sunshine Grill had excellent food! We are looking forward to staying here on our next trip to Grand Cayman.

Sunshine Suites was a great place to stay and a good value for Seven Mile properties. Though not directly on the beach - it is just a short walk to enjoy the beautiful ocean and beach. And within walking distance to the Westin where one can catch the Redboat Sails (catamaran) and restaurants, bars, nightlife and liquor store. The Sunshine Restaurant and bar scene is very quaint and poolside. Breakfast is included and adequate to get the day started. We will stay there again!

Really enjoyed this property, the location is close to airport as well as town.
They have the best bus system in any island that I have ever travelled so you
can go to different restaurants, shopping,excursions etc...
Rooms clean and spacious and on site restaurant good!
The free Wifi was awesome too.
The only thing I would change is they should have in room safe so you don't
have to keep going to the front desk.
I would go back for sure!

What a lucky find. This is a unique, off the beach property that is a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Not a high rise, sterile, formal atmosphere, it's a friendly, easygoing place to stay. Our room was a second floor, deluxe suite and was adequately furnished and very clean. The air conditioner was very noisy and we had to rely on the overhead fan while sleeping. This wasn't unique to our room, but due to the type of units being used. The grounds are extremely well groomed and enjoyable. I liked the free beach towels and chairs readily available. The beach is a short 5 minute walk from the property. The included continental breakfasts were good, but could use a little more variety.

The Sunshine Grill stands out as a wonderful surprise. Rather small, it has great lunches and dinners as well as a personable, hardworking staff. It is one of the highest rated restaurants on Grand Cayman.

One piece of advice; don't bite onto the Tuesday champagne shopping shuttle into Georgetown. I don't know why Sunshine Suites takes part in it, but it's like being on a cruise ship when the shopping frenzy is in full swing. Shills who are actually store employees spend the time b.s ing you on outrageous, over priced products. Once you get to the location, you find that most of Georgetown is closed( a little past 5:00PM) because the cruise ships are gone. What a total waste of time. I have to acknowledge that we took the shuttle because we wanted to go back to another place which was close to the shopping location, so we did have an ulterior motive. The place we wanted to go back to was closed. Caveat Emptor!!

I don't think we will ever return to the Cayman Islands, but if we do, we'll be staying at the Sunshine Suites Resort. I didn't appreciate the unjustified exchange rate which is 20%. Even worse is the, "different," rate used when you use Cayman Islands currency to buy something in a shop when the prices are expressed in U.S. dollars; add another 5%. We found the beaches extrordinarily beautiful and uncrowded. The people were friendly and helpful, but it seems to me that the place lacks a cultural uniqueness found in other countries and islands.

All in all, it was an interesting experience and I think the Sunshine Suites Resort is the, "hidden jewel," of Grand Cayman.

Very decent resort and the rooms are very large, only that the floor is tiled and therefore usually very cold. Breakfast needs a kick up but apart from that it was quite fine.

Once again, we had a wonderful stay at this jewel of a resort. You have everything you need on location (great food at the restaurant, free WIFI, clean comfortable rooms, beautifully landscaped grounds,nice pool, free towels & beach chairs, helpful/friendly staff, convenient location to other restaurants, shopping, etc). The beach is just across the street from the resort. Just walk between the condos and Westin across the street. We've stayed in the Westin also 2 years in a row before we started coming to the Sunshine Suites and trust me, the Westin has nothing on the Sunshine Suites that would warrant charging double the nightly rate. We will keep coming back.

Room Tip: They are all good

The Sunshine Suites Resort is located across the main road from the beach, however the Resort provides beach chairs and towels, and off you go to find a spot anywhere you wish on a most fabulous stretch of white sand! We found the beach to be most enjoyable whether you wish to swim, snorkel or just float! The signs say no music allowed, but you are able to bring your own coolers and snacks along with you. The long stretch of beach is well traveled by walkers and joggers. The buses are small passenger vans. You never have to wait long and can get one anywhere along the road out front. This way you can explore the island in any direction for two dollars each way. Just let them know where you wish to go, and they will let you know when to get off. The Resort provides free breakfast daily and we found that to be a great start each morning. The on site restaurant is very well known for its great dishes with reasonable prices. The grocery store is just a ten minute walk away with a small convenience store at the end of the driveway for any last minute items. Our room was clean and we found the staff to be friendly and accommodating.
We did the Stingray Tour with Capt. Marvin's out front of the Resort and the Jeep Tour with Shirley to see the east part of the island. We recommend both! Would we stay again at the Sunshine Suites? Absolutely!
