“Very good indeed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Great place just see the other reviews to be convinced. Prior to going I read that the grab and go breakfast was not good - they might have improved before I came at least I found it to be good - not a lot of choices but fruits , great banana bread, yogurt and an absolut excellent coffee! (Indeed great coffee!) Made my day. Staff are very attentive - the grill is really good ,but a drag that it is so full always - though important that they give preference to guests of the hotel. An alternative for drinks and a snack and some more seatings in the great garden would have been good.
Important with a well equippped kitchen and a supermarket not too far away. The short stroll to the beach is fine and at least when I was there the beach was not over crowded and the water is simply exceptional!

The first room we checked in, woke up in the morning with roaches in the kitchen. Lady at the front desk told us our room had been sprayed yesterday, and they would send someone to the room now to spray again. That is exactly what we did not want to hear the first day of our trip. Fortunately a manager was there and immediately moved us to a new upgraded suite room.

The upgraded room was great, really couldn't ask for anything more. Ended up extending our stay, and moved back into another standard room and that room was great as well.

For the price, location, convenience, etc this is an absolutely fantastic hotel and I would stay there again without hesitation - and that is after our rocky start.

The Good:

- Literally 30 seconds across the street from the beach.
- 4 of the highest rated and most affordable restaurants literally right there.
- Walking distance to grocery store
- Morning continental (included) breakfast has cereal, fruits, oatmeal, etc.
- Free WIFI
- Price
- Full kitchen

The Bad:

- No hot showers. Fine for me, but my wife complained (to me) several times about it.
- You are not right on the beach, so you have to carry chairs across the street
- The internet had a couple days where it was really flaky. If you have to do some business work and need a solid internet connection, this could be an issue for you.

Unless you really want to be right on the beach, or a fancy room - this is a real great hotel, and a great way to save several hundred $$ day between hotel/food/etc.

Stayed here Dec 18-25, 2013. We were looking for a hotel on or near seven mile beach that wasnt too expensive. The Sunshine Suites hotel got such good reviews we booked it for a week. No regular rooms were available so we got the suite, which was nice for relaxing during the day.

The most important thing to us is a clean room. Sunshine suites is VERY clean and the facility well maintained.

The staff at the front desk worked very hard and were very friendly everytime we encountered them.

We flew out Christmas morning and had to leave the hotel at 5:30am. Renoir one of the front desk staff made sure, and doubled checked that everything was going to work out. He arranged a cab, a wake up call, and had hotel security help us with our bags from the third floor.

Towels are available for the beach as well as beach chairs and an unbrella or two. The beach is just accross the street, about a 5 minute walk tops. This was never an issue for us.

The hotel restaurant is one of the best on the island, so good we ate there 4 times. See my other review of the restaurant.

A contenental "take away" breakfast is provided. Not at lot of variety but juice, bananas, yogart, cerial and muffens. I would have liked to have some type of bread offering and maybe some hard boiled eggs. But it was just fine how it was.

We walked to and from Grorge town several times, at night and during the day as well. Its about 2.6 miles and takes about 40 minutes but is not that bad. Very safe any time.

Buses run all the time and cost $2.50 per person each way. So two people round trip to town for dinner is $10 total. A taxi is about $25-30 dollars one way.

My two very small opportunities for improvement; No in room safes, and I like a very hot shower and if you hit the morning rush the water is just warm. If you shower before dinner the water is fine.

I would highly reccomend staying here. I think it is one of the best values on the island. It is located in the middle of seven mile beach accross the street from the Westin, where we walked around in the evening.

If you dive they have a 10% off special with Divers Down.

Room Tip: Had a nice suite on the third floor.

This was a wonderful choice for our hotel during our first full trip to Grand Cayman for our 18th anniversary! The service was excellent, the rooms were well decorated & very clean, & the restaurant was outstanding. LOVED all of the extra plug ins to charge all of our tech equipment.!!Highly recommend..

This hotel is wonderful. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Their restaurant was delicious. It had everything we needed. The rooms were bright and big and the price was very reasonable. The resident cat Paco was awesome.

We are staying at the Sunshine Suites for 7 days. Location is perfect: we are close to dive shops, grocery stores and the beach. Isabel at the front desk is AMAZING, so helpful! She helped us arrange our tours and is always so friendly. They even remembered that it was my husband's birthday when we checked in and left a surprise gift for him. :)

It was nice to have a small kitchen and free wifi. The Sunshine Grill was fantastic too (try the fish tacos and PainKiller). Will definitely stay here again!

The hotel staff (Biance and Jenna specifically) were super helpful in finding us places to eat, drink, and relax. The rooms were clean and had good air conditioning. The beach is about a 3 minute walk away from the hotel with one street crossing, which is really easy, but not as easy as being on the beach, of course. The hotel does have beach chairs that you can bring with you, don't forget!

Room Tip: There are some renovations being done on the 3rd floor as of Dec. 2013 which makes things a little m...
