“exceptional staff; great suites; best value in Caribbean”
Reviewed 28 February 2011

I know Grand Cayman very well. having lived there and tried all the hotels. I have no hesitation in recommending Sunshine Suites as the absolute best value for money. All the staff are extremely helpful and conscientious;the grounds comprise magnificent palms and superbly-kept lawns, with open views. The magnificent and justly famous Seven Mile Beach is only a ten minute stroll away. Suites have two tv's and are delightfully furnished

My husband and I had to stay a couple of extra days at the end of our vacation because he was ill and the Shangri La B&B where we had been staying (absolutely excellent place) was full. I had the travel insurance company call Sunshine Suites and arrange for us to stay there - they only had a couple of rooms available and managed to accommodate us at late notice.

Admittedly this was hardly an ideal situation and the insurance company did everything they could to make things as time-consuming and difficult to arrange as they possibly could but...Sunshine Suites were brilliant. Every single member of staff that I had to discuss things with were helpful, courteous and quite frankly offered the kind of service I would expect from the Four Seasons (who I love to stay with if I can). Wonderful. The facilities were comfortable, room staff friendly and if I really wanted to stay somewhere close to Seven Mile Beach I would recommend it. Luckily my husband was well enough to leave (or maybe unlucky - Cayman is not such a bad spot to get stranded at) and so we only stayed two nights.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sunshine Suites. The rooms are comfortable, the staff pleasant and the Grill....FANTASTIC. Try the fish tacos! It is close to the public beach. You do have to walk along the Westin property but the beach is beautiful.

Sunshine suites is conveniently located on Seven Mile Beach just a short walk from the beach. Housekeeping does a fabulous job of keeping everything clean and neat (sweeping beach sand can't be easy!). People are friendly and aim to please with whatever one may request. It's so close to great restaurants and a short bus ride from Georgetown. We slept very well; comfortable bed, quiet at night. The bathroom was large enough and the shower worked great! We'll come back here again, for certain.

This place is billed as a "budget" option for those wishing to stay on/near SMB. It is exactly that; a no-frills place to stay at night while you spend the day at the beach for roughly half of what it costs to stay at one of the beach-side resorts. Was comfortable, clean, and convenient. Spent minimal time at the hotel during the day and ate out most evenings. Nothing over the top in terms of luxury, but it isnt meant to be. In fact, looking at how crowded how the Ritz and Westin resorts were, we were happy to be able to move our chairs to the less crowded portions of the beach. 5 stars above purely on value.

I thought this place was okay. It's pricey for what you get, about $300/night, but what isn't pricey in Cayman.
1) The beach is close, across the street but you have to cross a fairly busy street. There's no cross walk and we had to depend on the kindness of driver's to let us pass, b/c most of the time it was too busy to make it across without someone stopping. Also there were a few times that the beach chairs which are free to take ran out.
2) The restaurant Sunshine Grill (ranked #1 on Tripadvisor) is very popular with locals, I thought it was okay. There is a significant wait sometimes to eat there. Breakfast is included.
3) Also the popularity of the restaurant has led to diners sitting on tables on one side of the pool. This in turn has led to decreased places for hotel guests to relax by the pool. If you want to sit at the pool, you better get out there early. If you arrive at 8 AM, the poolside lounges are all taken. You have a better chance sitting out in the garden which has a nice lawn but you stare at cars in the parking lot.
4) The free wifi internet was slow as molasses. Apparently it was down due to a guests computer had a virus.

Overall the place is okay for the money. To be honest, I think it would be worth paying that little bit extra to be in a hotel actually on the beach (i.e. not having to cross the busy street) and with a bigger pool that wasn't always so crowded.
