Sunshine Suites Resort
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Seven Mile Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2014

My wife and I spent a week at Sunshine Suites and thoroughly enjoyed it. While not right on the waterfront you simply need to cross the street to access the beach. Sunshine provides high quality collapsible beach chairs for it's guests that are an easy carry the 300 meters to some of the nicest sand and crystal clear calm waters you could ever ask for. You can either plunk your chairs down "in between" any of the beachfront resort properties but we preferred to go a bit further North on the beach to a large strip of sand directly in front of the Cayman Governor's residence.

The resort itself is in decent shape and the well kept grounds quite beautiful. Our 1 bedroom suite had everything we needed and it was also clean and comfortable. A good A/C unit in the room and 2 ceiling fans kept the heat at bay when we were in our room. We took advantage of the large fridge and full kitchen and cooked at least 1-2 meals a day to save a few bucks as the restaurants in the Caymans can be a bit pricey. Sunshine does have a free continental breakfast that we tried out a couple of the days but found we often preferred to make our own coffee and breaky. About the only complaint was the lack of cutlery in the drawers and the absence of a dishwasher.

We ate at the Grille restaurant onsite a couple of times and found the food and the service good! Although one breakfast was essentially ruined by the grounds-keeping staff mowing and blowing loudly for 2-3 hs on Wed morning, so maybe go out for breakfast on Wednesdays!
All in all we enjoyed Sunshine Suites and would stay there again.

Have been to GCM many times and Sunshine Suites is definitely the best value on the island. Outside appearance is awesome and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is across the street from probably the finest beach there. In fact if it was on the beach it would be close to a 5 star property. The grill is excellent and talked with customers that had come from other hotels to experience the food. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable, outside appearance is great, across the street from the finest beach, and very reasonable. What else could you want?

I would thoroughly recommend Sunshine Suites for all the reasons mentioned by reviewers on here. Staff were great, food in grill delicious and good value, rooms a little basic but clean, breakfast fine for what we needed.

Great location 5 minutes from the beach.

Can't wait to go back.

Before spending 5 nights at Sunshine Suites, I read many of the reviews. Sunshine Suites definitely met our expectations. Here's what we can add to what others have already shared. The Sunshine Grill was great, especially the fish tacos, black beans and rice. We really appreciated the fact they only accepted reservations from guests staying at the hotel as the place was packed each night we were there.

The front desk staff was most helpful, particularly Bianca and Renior. While we had not planned to rent a car, after a few days of exploring all that we could on foot, the hotel staff assisted with arranging for a rental car and recommending all sorts os sights off the beaten path.

Our favorite site by far was snorkeling around the reef off Governor's Beach. Just head to the beach, it's on the right side of the Westin. It was an easy swim to the reef, where we were met by school of Bar Jacks. We saw an Eagle Ray, a stray from Stringray City, barracuda, and countless tropical fish.

Bottom line, we were very pleased with our first visit to Grand Cayman and Sunshine Suites.

This is our second stay at Sunshine Suites. You can not beat the good price for Cayman Island. The staff at Sunshine Suites Resort do a great job and really care about their customers. This hotel is a short walk to the beach. They offer beach chairs to take to the beach. Breakfast is included in our stay which is a real value.

My daughter and I stayed there for a week to get certified as divers. It was wonderful and will be my hotel of choice in Grand Cayman during return trips. Everything was wonderful , including the on site restaurant.

My wife and I stayed a week and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking at the best value in Grand Cayman! Easy access to the beach with towels and chairs provided were great and the small pool was good to go late in the afternoon to relax.


We ate at Subshine Grille 4 times during our stay and every meal was fantastic. (The burgers are gut busters for the portion, so I would advise on splitting meals!)

The only negative was the AC unit in our room was very loud at night which would keep my wife up at times, but that is very common for that type of unit.
