“"Sunshine all the way"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Spent 10 days in a studio apartment at these suites in July.

Suites are really comfortable and spotless clean
Comfortable double bed and all amenities you require for your stay,.
Did not use the cooking equipment but the fridge definitely came in handy in the 33c heat.

From our arrival to our return journey home we always encountered professional and very helpful staff with an excellent positve attitude,
Nothing was too much trouble.

There is a Fosters supermarket 10 mins walk away and a wine shop at the bottom of the road which helped with the cost of eating out.
As prior reviews have stated , Grand Cayman can be quite expensive.
Please note, the supermarkets do not sell alchohol you have to go to the wine stores.

We ate at the Sunshine Grill a couple of times and thought the food was excellent and good value.
Free buffett breakfast was ample and Illy coffee provided was a nice suprise

We also ate at Eats Cafe, Legendz and Canton Chinese amongst others, and found them all very good and large portions for the $. All within a few minutes walk

The location of the suites is across the road from one of the best parts of Seven Mile Beach.
Just take your beach towels and quirky little deck chairs which are provided by the hotel and in two minutes, you can enjoy a turqouise sea, that is so clear and warm, along with sand as soft as flour.
Heaven!!!

The suites are really nice and we could not fault them in anyway., however, what makes this place special is the fantastic staff and excellent service.

If your looking for a nice place to stay in a great location with superb staff then do not hesiate to book this place.

Room Tip: High floor ( 3 ) gets less footfall from other floors , so more private

We spent 4 nights at the resort in April 2013. This resort is situated in a very convenient location with easy access to the beach. The rooms are nice and comfortable. Renoir at the reception was extremely helpful and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities.
You have to remember that this a 3-star resort and the pool and restaurant maintains that standard. The breakfast was mediocre. If you want a resort experience, this is not the place for you. We landed up here because we booked last minute and the resorts were sold out. Overall we had a good stay.

Room Tip: If you need internet service, request a room closer to the reception. Avoid lower level rooms becaus...

The rooms are really nice with a kitchen. The pool is good and right beside the restaurant. The restaurant has good prices and a decent selection if quality food. The staff is nice and funny! It is directly across from the Ritz Carlton. It is not in the beach but it is just across from it. Checking in was smooth and easy!

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
