“great place to stay!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights. Was looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay and enjoy a relaxing beach vacation. This place provided exactly what I wanted. I had a 3rd floor room (I don't mind not having an elevator) away from the pool/restaurant area, and it was very quiet. I enjoyed having the kitchenette. The hotel and my room was kept very clean. Nice grounds too. Location was perfect. It was an easy, 5 minute walk to the beach. The grocery store was a 15 minute walk. There are excellent restaurants and cafes in easy walking distance. The onsite restaurant, Sunshine Grill, was great. I traveled solo and often had a couple beers and a meal at the bar. For those of you who need a beach view from a balcony to feel like you're on vacation, this might not be your spot. But to save a lot of money for an awesome place that's super close to the beach anyway? I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the 3rd floor. It was very quiet. No elevators though, so this may be difficult for some p...

We love staying here and have been back several times. There isn't a better place to stay on Grand Cayman for my money. This great independent hotel beats the corporate ones by seven miles! It was really cool seeing Arnold Palmer at the hotel as he left Sunshine Grill after eating breakfast there and he was so very gracious talk to everyone and make photos. The staff is so helpful and kind. The restaurant is hard to beat. Love the new breakfast when you need a little something more substantial than their complimentary, Grab and Go continental style breakfast. Pretty, convenient to the beach, well manicured, clean, and fresh and by Cayman standards, VERY reasonably priced year round. They even have pet friendly rooms.

Room Tip: There are even pet friendly rooms on first floor

My wife and I spent one night at SS while in transit from Little Cayman to the US. The Hotel is located one block from the beach, about a $25 taxi ride from the airport. Our room was very spacious and included a kitchenette. We arrived early but were able to get into our room by 1PM even though checkin time wasn't until 3pm. The reception personnel were very friendly and accommodating. Beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas are provided free on a first come first serve basis. The rate also includes a continental breakfast. This hotel is a very good value given its location and the amenities it provides. Also, it is one of the few hotels that do not require a minimum stay of three nights. We had a ground floor room that was susceptible to normal outside noises. Other than that SS is a very good place to stay and we would do so again.

Stayed here for my 30th Anniversary, was pleased with the accommodation and would have liked a little bit more of a pool scene. Not enough shade at the pool. Otherwise, plenty of shade on the property which was very impressive, the staff and the guest where very friendly, we even had a pay it forward umbrella, (Sunshine suites offers chair for the beach but not umbrella) and you can buy one at the little mini mart around the corner, so we had a guest who was leaving offer us their umbrella and of course I paid it forward when I left. The location to the beach was just a short walk, the bus system was not the best and not real reliably after the tourist from the ship go home. Tip go buy groceries at the Grocery store, you will save your self lots of money, everything here is very expensive.

My wife and I just returned from our first stay on Grand Cayman. We decided to stay at Sunshine Suites and were extremely well taken care of by the hotel staff. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff is extremely helpful in every way. We also thought the location to Seven Mile beach was ideal. One of the most helpful things is that extremely close to Cost U Save market which allowed us to shop for groceries which saved on our food costs. The walk to the beach is no problem at all.

Stayed recently because of high rating on Trip Advisor. Arrived late afternoon our room was on the 3rd floor with no elevator. Staff carried our luggage to the room for us. We were in a standard queen with a small kitchen area (frig, cook top, microwave, sink,) this came in handy for a light meal daily. Nice pool in front of restaurant that is used very little. Staff were very nice and everything was very clean and well kept. A little on the expensive side for a motel, but nothing on the island is low priced. There is a very small public access beach across the street. The on sight restaurant was very good and reasonable for island prices, $15 US for most meals. Think I'll try a condo next time and will return to the Sunshine Grill for some meals. The grab and go breakfast was not what I expected. Read in previous reviews that a hot breakfast was included, it was not. Kind of expected the hot breakfast option because of the high room price. If needed, I would stay here again.
