“Look no further - this hotel is great for the Caymans and Seven Mile Beach”
Reviewed 3 March 2009

We stayed at the Caymans for a long Valentine's weekend and absolutely loved it - for the price and the quality of accomodations it's an absolute steal compared to what you'll pay right across the street for the other hotels that are on the beach nearby (Westin, Ritz). Crossing the street is no big ordeal as someone else mentioned - pick up the freely-provided chairs and walk 5 minutes to the beach. Beach access is directly across the street as you come out of the Sunshine Suites grounds. The landscaping and hotel surroundings are very neat and well-taken care of, and the hammocks are a nice touch as well. Even the building colors were pleasing to the eye and very colorful, pastels abound, in contrast to the drab faded blue of the Westin and the boring biege of the Ritz. The hotel has its own beach-cleaning station to wash your feet off before heading back inside, which was nice after hanging out at the beach. Towels are also included, so we always had what we needed for the day when we went snorkeling or to watch the sunset (a daily ritual you'll soon come to love). Our room was great as well, no complaints; it was clean, quiet, and very comfortable, just the right size to use as a place to crash for the evening. The service at Sunshine was stellar; Renoir at the front desk was very friendly and accomodating. Everything was stellar in terms of service, and though the Pina Coladas were great, the female bartender was a bit gruff and not very friendly, and even shortchanged us on the drinks, though the rest of her coworkers were very polite in contrast. We didn't dine at the Sunshine Grill but breakfast was quite bountiful and it's a cool hangout day and night. The hotel also had a very hip, lounge-like feel that was a nice respite after hours spent in the sun. It's also very centrally-located in the middle of Seven Mile Beach, as a launchpad to go north or south exploring. We'll definitely come back to Sunshine the next Cayman go-round and highly recommend it to everyone else.

We had our hotel booking changed at the last minute to Sunshine Suites and we were DELIGHTED with the change! The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent! You do have to cross a road to get to the beach but drivers are very polite and let you cross and the price of the room reflects that you are not staying on a beach front site. WHEN we go back to Grand Cayman we will certainly use this hotel again and would recommend to anyone!

I've been lots of places but none more beautiful and welcoming than Sunshine Suites! From the moment we arrived, we knew we had made the right choice in hotels. The grounds were our first clue that we had truly arrived in paradise. The landscaping is gorgeous and so well maintained. Flowers bloomed in every nook and corner and adirondack chairs and hammocks welcomed you to sit and enjoy the view and sweet aroma. Our rooms were brightly decorated and very comfortable and the beds and bedding extrememly cozy. The best part of Sunshine Suites is The Sunshine Grill. The food and service are excellent. The best fish tacos you ever tasted! The ocean is just a short walk away and the hotel provides beach towels and beach chairs. We loved all the staff and highly recommend this little piece of paradise to everyone! Take me with you when you go!

I've just returned from 2 weeks at the Sunshine Suites with my friend, all the good reviews are accurate.

Good points:

- Food in sunshine restaurant was some of the best we had
- Room size & cleanliness
- Service and friendliness of staff (and guests in general)
- Beautiful and well kept grounds
- The pool area is quiet & the loungers are comfortable
- There are good local restaurants (Yoshi Sushi, Eats, Legends Bar, Eduardo's) very close by

Bad points:

- It's not on the beach so although they do give you chairs they're not that comfortable (I am nitpicking though, the beach is 2 minutes' walk away and if you walk up to the right for 15 minutes you can hire loungers from the locals)
- The waste of paper plates & cups at breakfast - I don't understand why they can't all be done on real stuff & put through the dishwasher - very wasteful in this day & age

We had a great time and I would definitely come again and recommend it to others. Considering it's half the price of most of the other places to stay, it is well worth it.

My husband & myself come down to Grand Cayman every February for diving. We have been staying here for 8 years & recomend this place to all our friends in Colorado. Everyone is very acommidating & friendly. The Sunshine Grill is the best on the Island. Mike does a great job with the Grill. The staff is here to please you at all times. The price is right also. You cannot go wrong here.

I along with my 2 daughters and some friends recently stayed at Sunshine Suites and it was so great . We enjoyed beautiful green grass surrounded by beautiful flowers , banana and coconut trees instead of all concrete. They have wonderful food at the restaurant and even give you free breakfast every morning. Its a short walk to the beach and they furnish chairs and beach towels also. There is a small strip mall within walking distance to purchase food and drinks for your room kitchen . The beds are really clean and comfy and you control your air to your comfort. Its very peaceful and quiet for us old folks and the young can swim in a pool located near the restaurant while you can watch from poolside tables and eat really good food. As you can tell I am sold on Sunshine Suites and it is the place to stay for me and mine!!! Joyce from Gleason, Tn.

The Sunshine Suites were amazing!
for starters you could just hop in your car and drive for like a minute and then you would be a beautiful beach!
The staff was pretty good and the rooms were fabulous! We had a GREAT ROOM with an pretty cool view.
I went with my family for Christmas and everyone had a great time! One thing that was a HUGE hit was that there was a hammock right by our rooms. I believe there were two hammocks and everyone went on them. They took them down at night and then put them back up in the morning and I remember that my family members would just stand in front of the two palm trees waiting for the Hammocks to be hung up. It was sooooo relaxing!
