Sunshine Suites Resort
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in Seven Mile Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Thouroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort. Nice little bar and restaurant. Always very accommodating and clean. Have stayed here for last several years. A great value this close to Seven Mile Beach. Small kitchen set up but fine and handy for breakfast and lunch. The restaurant has very good Burgers. Look forward to my next vacation here in Cayman.

Room Tip: King suite is worth the extra money

We read all the great reviews before we chose this hotel and agree! The location is within a short walk from Seven Mile Beach, you just grab a lawn chair & beach towel provided by the hotel and walk 2-3 min across the street to the beautiful white sandy beach where you can snorkel a bit and see some beautiful fish and even a stingray or two if you're lucky!

The hotel grounds are very clean and well maintained and the rooms as well - we loved the kitchenette that is in every room. We walked over to the CostULess grocery store & got enough food to make sandwiches for one meal everyday & some other snacks. FYI - CostULess is just like Costco so bring your own bags to carry food home if you don't have a rental car or you'll have to buy the reusable shopping bags. You'll find that, like many other islands, everything is pricey here so we tried to save a little cash & do a sandwich one meal a day - worked out great for us.

Sunshine Grill - their restaurant on the hotel grounds is just as good as all the reviews say & you MUST eat there - more than once! We had the incredible fish tacos twice and a great burger twice - they are known throughout the island for these 2 menu items and we would have gone back for fish tacos a third time, but got there too late & the wait was long. TIP: For dinner there - Make reservations 24 hrs in advance or call in advance to put your name on the waitlist - this restaurant is VERY popular and always busy for dinner. We got lunch to go a couple of days to save wait time, but when they're busy at dinner time, they may not always offer to go. You must eat there - such great food! Missing those fish tacos already

We did Captain Marvin's Stingray & Snorkeling tour & ate at Yoshi Sushi - both are right next to this hotel & I highly recommend both!

Based on other reviews, we asked for a 3rd floor room when we made our reservation & it was very quiet. Walking up the stairs to our room was good exercise too, which is always needed on vacation!

We used the laundry room on site & were glad we did - is cheap and easy

Overall - We'll definitely stay at this hotel again - great customer service, clean hotel, awesome location!

Room Tip: 3rd floor is much quieter and talking the stairs (didn't see elevator) is a good bit of exercise...

Amazing vacation thanks to Sunshine Suites! This hotel is immaculate - one would think it was just built because it is so clean! The staff works overtime to make you feel welcome and to make sure you are taken care of! This is the only place I've stayed where the housekeeper said "I'm glad to see you are still here - I was off for two days and thought you had left! How is your vacation going?" Front desk staff were so accommodating - went out of their way to call cabs, restaurants, book excursions and they have check-in and out down to an art!! The grounds were beautiful - there was always someone friendly working in the yard! And the night security guard was visible every time I came in or left after dark. The island is very safe but it felt good to know they care enough to have someone there to assist you after hours.

I know there are big resorts all around but this place is a precious jewel that proves bigger is not always better!!

And then when you think it can't get any better - there's the Sunshine Grill! How nice to get out of bed and know that one of the best breakfast on the island is just a few steps out your door!

My daughter and I can't wait to get back to the Island and our new home away from home, Sunshine Suites!

This was our 4th stay at Sunshine Suites on Grand Cayman. We had difficulty with our car rental company at the airport. The A/C didn't work and it was not a good experience. When we checked in at Sunshine Suites, Katie , the asst manager asked us to allow her to help with the problem. She sent us to unpack and get comfortable while she dealt with the car company. Within a short time, Katie had a new car delivered to the hotel and checked it in herself. We have always had a good experience at Sunshine Suites. But I have to give the extra credit to Katie for going over the top to make sure we enjoyed our stay on the island!! THANK YOU KATIE!!

Room Tip: we have never had any complaint about any room given to us

Just returned today from the sunshine suites. Booked through British airways and got 25% off, plus a free double room upgrade and a $50 credit for the sunshine grill. Rooms are excellent quality and clean. Ours had a massive double bed, full kitchen, bathroom and lounge area with sofa bed. All roms air conditioned and very clean. Gardens are very well kept and pool area is clean and well maintained. All staff friendly and helpful. Beach is five minutes walk away and beach chairs are provided to take down there. Food at the sun shine grill is very good and reasonable price, All in all an excellent place at a great price.

My husband and I just adore Sunshine Suites. We’ve been traveling to Cayman for 23 years and Sunshine Suites now is the only hotel we stay at when we visit Cayman, which is at least once a year. The staff are incredible and so helpful, the grounds are perfectly maintained, there are hammocks to take a snooze, they have a lovely pool area and the Sunshine Grill is phenomenal. Also, each room has a full kitchen and is immaculate and very comfortable.
They have just installed HDTV and that was great – tons of channels and 5 music channels. You can borrow beach chairs and towels to take with you when you go to the beach, which is really nice. The beach is just a short walk (say 200 yards ish) across West Bay Road. Since the new bypass opened, there is not much traffic on West Bay Road now so it was really easy to cross West Bay Road to get to the beach this visit. Our only complaint was that the internet service was spotty. However, they said they are in the process of upgrading it to the fastest service on the island. We had breakfast at the Sunshine Grill and it was great. They just started offering a full breakfast menu. I had the pancakes with blueberries (fabulous) and my husband had the homemade yogurt with granola, honey and blueberries (also fantastic). Very reasonable prices (for Cayman). They still offer a nice free continental breakfast (cereal, fruit, yogurt). It was more generous in years past, but not that good. Now it really has great pastries and terrific gourmet coffee as well. Also, lunch and dinner in the Sunshine Grill are equally amazing and tasty - be sure to try the Fish Tacos and the Havanna Chicken.

Our family (husband, wife and twin 13-year old boys) enjoyed a week's stay at Sunshine Suites Resort this past month (July 2013). We found practically everything about Sunshine Suites to be as good as the excellent reviews promised. The proximity to the beach was perfect ... a short stroll across the street and down a gravel path past the Westin Causarina put us smack in the middle of a beautiful beach. Steps away was Red Sail Water Sports (down near Governor's Beach) where we were able to rent kayaks, sail boat, take a "banana boat" ride and more.
Breakfast at Sunshine Grill was included in our room rate and our stay coincided with a change to free continental breakfast and a new ala carte menu. We did not try the ala carte breakfast, but did have the breakfast buffet which we found to be more than adequate. Towels and beach chairs for the beach were readily available and convenient. We brought a small insulated bag to bring water, soft drinks, fruit and snack to the beach each day.
Darryn, the manager of the Sunshine Grill, generously spent a fair amount time with us mapping out highlights of the island on the day we rented a car. Katie, at the Front Desk, was helpful and pleasant with getting my return boarding passes printed. I used the on-site laundry facilities half-way through (Front Desk provided CI quarters in exchange for my US bills), which was great ... allowing us to pack light and still have fresh clothing for our stay.
We all agreed that the best meals we had on the island were our dinners at the Sunshine Grill. The food is fresh, wonderfully and creatively prepared and generous. Drinks from the bar were most delicious as well, thanks to Danielle (Nicole?). We loved the mini ice cream cone offered after meals ... my favorite flavor was the Mango-Lemon with Ginger (I think it was called).
The staff are all welcoming, pleasant and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return to Grand Cayman and Sunshine Suites in a New York minute!
Thanks to all for a wonderful family vacation!

Room Tip: We had a one-bedroom suite (not a closed-off room, but a separate sleeping area). Our boys slept on...
