“Another perfect trip...”
Reviewed 15 March 2010

This was our second stay at Caribbean Club. It was just as fantastic this time as the first visit. Walking into the condo on the first day absolutely amazed me...again!! We have stayed at many places in Grand Cayman but none compare to these condos. The kitchen/family room is huge. These condos have a wonderful layout with each bedroom having their own bathrooms. The balconies are also huge and is where we spend alot of our day. We spent time in the pool everyday....perfect !!!!!! Since we visited in March this time, we saw more kids at the property. This was nice to see. We wondered if it was "too nice" to bring our kids. The families with kids looked comfortable and seemed to be having a great time. I noticed that they had a stash of sand toys and rafts for anyone to use. Another nice extra!! As we took our daily walk down the beach, we would comment on all the different properties. The hotel beaches were always crowded with chairs and people. We feel so lucky to be able to stay at the best....Caribbean Club.
Thanks again to Danielle for making our vacation perfect!!!

This was our 4th stay at Caribbean Club. Having been to GC since 1996, we've had the pleasure of staying at some of the finer places along SMB. We'd rate this highest for service, decor and overall feel. Someone else had called it a boutique hotel and that may be the term that describes it best. It's the best of both worlds---hotel and condo living. It's small enough for personal attention yet has all the amenities of a larger resort. Mangement and staff truly are interested in assisting the guests to ensure a pleasurable stay. While lounging at the pool, most days I was alone yet there were definately other guests staying onsite. There are ample chairs, huts and tables that always seem to outnumber the guests. Some places scrimp on the allottment of chairs to guest but Caribbean Club figured out prior to service that it's better to have overstock instead of guests needing to fight over a chair. The pool is very large and easily can be shared by both those wanting to read while sitting on the steps(me :) or families that have smaller children and need a more controlled place other than the ocean. There are 2 rinse stations available so no need to drag the sand back into your unit. I'd recommend one of the oceanfront villas for the magnificient views. The only downside to the place is that breakfast isn't served at Luca(the restaurant attached and also used for room service). And the master bathroom showers in the oceanfront villas are considerably smaller than one would expect. Neither have deterred us from returning as we plan yet another visit in the summer. While we haven't used the services, weddings are also performed on site. We've had the pleasure of watching 2 so far. I'm sure it's something they will never forget! I always recommend travelers to contact the resort direcdtly to inquire about pricing or with any questions. Danielle, the manager, adds a major component to making this place work.

Not much more to say than has already been said. If you're looking for a luxury stay on Seven Mile Beach, this is the spot. After initially reserving at the Beach Suites, we read the reviews here (and learned that resort - condos are the way to go in Cayman), and we switched. Boy were we glad.

We were traveling with our 2 year old and 4 year old. Caribbean Club was perfect. The condos are huge, beautiful, modern, and right on the pool and beach. We had two twin beds in one of the bedrooms, so the kids were able to share a room -- we didn't even use the third bedroom.

The beach is on the best stretch of SMB, and generally empty (no chair drama). There's a grocery store across the street and a restaurant/bar onsite in the event you're too lazy to acquire the ingredients to cook for yourself or fix your own drinks. And the staff was terrific -- front desk was helpful, housekeeping was great (they even helped out with our dishes in the kitchen!), and the pool/maintenance staff was always working to keep the place impeccable.

Beachcomber and Meridian also looked great (other luxury condos right next door to CC), and there are a number of other condo resorts that look nice, though not as fancy. But we walked by the Ritz, the Westin, all the other hotels along SMB, and none of them compared; they all looked totally crazy -- their beaches are packed with chairs and they all give off a pretty chaotic vibe. Not what we were looking for at all.

The only possible downside was that with such a quiet resort (it really felt like we had it almost to ourselves; frequently there was nobody else at the pool or on the beach), the kids didn't have other kids to play with. But we were happy to spend time together in the pool and on the beach, so while it might have been nice to have a few more families around, in the end, we had a great family vacation.

Would definitely recommend and return.

We began planning for this destination wedding many months in advance. Working with the manager, Danielle, was a dream. Staying at the Caribbean Club is liking being at a wonderful boutique hotel. Attentive service, wonderful food, tranquil pool, beautiful seven mile beach, and then the rooms ... oversized three and four bedroom suites with large rooms and bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchens if you choose to stay in. Large balconies for enjoying the wonderful views. We've stayed at the Ritz on a previous visit. It was very nice, but on our next trip to Cayman (which we are already planning), we'll be staying at the Caribbean Club!

My family and I had an amazing time at the Carribean Club from December 12th-19th. Our experience exceeded all our expectations from the planning phase until our departure. I was a little skeptical when I first read the reviews about CC and Danielle, but I found all of it to be true!
Before child, my husband and I traveled at least twice per year overseas with one beach vacation each year. We typically stay in 4 or 5 star hotels/resorts with service being our top criterion. This was our second trip to Grand Cayman. Our first visit was in 2007 where we stayed at the Ritz. We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Ritz in '07 which would make it tough to surpass. The Caribbean Club did just that...CC absolutely surpassed all our expectations and I would definitely label us as 'extremely difficult to please'.
Danielle was extremely helpful from start to finish. She made sure we had everything we needed during our stay - for us and for our 17 month old daughter. To our surprise, we were upgraded from a tower suite to a beachfront villa (villa 11).

The Villa: The villa took our breath away from the moment we opened the door. It's true...2500 square feet of pure luxury! Our villa was well appointed, spacious and offered all the luxuries of home with an absolutely breath taking view of Seven Mile Beach! We also had an opportunity to tour a tower suite and they are equally beautiful. Really! Our only complaint is that our shower stall in the beachfront villa was a bit small. In comparison, the tower suites were actually larger (bedrooms and bathrooms) and even more spacious if you can at all believe that. The only downside to the tower suites is that not all bedrooms have a view...but who cares, the view from the living area and large balcony make up for it!

The View: From where we stayed (inside the villa and from our ridiculously large L-shaped balcony, we didn't think of it as SMB because it truly felt like OUR own private beach. It was 7 days of peaceful views of turquoise waters and amazing sunsets everyday.

Service: Everyone was great! Danielle and her staff exceeded all our expectations. Housekeeping came every morning and also provided turn down service each evening. Everything including dishes were taken care of. Toiletries provided were actually the same as the Ritz. We even complained about our crib as I am on the shorter side. The crib was replaced immediately with one that better fit my need. We ordered from the restaurant a few times: delicious and timely. I would highly recommend the tuna tartare and the spinach proscuitto salad. Yum! For convenience, we pre-ordered groceries through the grocery shopping service. It was nice to have the groceries there upon arrival. All the luxuries of a full service hotel and more!

Location: Unbeatable!!! In the heart of SMB, walking distance from restaurants and across the street from a grocery store and liqour store. Trust me...you couldn't find a more central location. As for the distance from the beach...ridiculous. The Ritz was nice, but having the beach 50 yards from our balcony was just insane!

The Beach/Pool: OURS! We brought my cousin to babysit for us and she spent a few afternoons on a raft floating in the Carribean Sea for hours without bumping into anyone. We played every morning with our daughter on the beach for a few hours and can probably count on one hand the number of people we would run into. This would not be the case if you were staying at the Ritz. Again, the Ritz is beautiful but there is something more special about feeling like you are sharing the island with only a few people. We traveled with two other couples (who stayed at the Ritz because this was their first time in GC) and they were completely envious of our beach and villa. They opted to spend a few days on our beach instead of the Ritz because of how peaceful and beautiful it was in comparison. No crowds in CC, no fuss paradise! The infinity pool was also nice and the grounds were very well maintained. CC has lots of rafts and beach toys available for toddlers and older kids. We brought our own, but totally unnecessary!

CC is truly a beautiful boutique resort that provides luxury and intimacy only afforded by the best. The Ritz was beautiful, but nothing compares to the true relaxation of the Caribbean Club. Hands down, this is the best place and the best vacation we have ever experienced. Book it...you won't regret it!

Misc: Cab from airport about $23 US one way. Transport can be arranged by Danielle.
Excursion will also pick you up from CC.
CC is a 3 minute walk to the Ritz (about 5 properties south).
Calls to US .75 per minute
Local calls .75 per call
Flat screens and DVDs in all rooms.

The reviewer pictures on trip advisor don't do Caribbean Club justice. Check out www.caribbeanclubweddings.com

I hope to go back next year!!!

We stayed at Caribbean Club August, and it was the perfect place for our party. We had 4 in our group, 2 couples, in a 3 bedroom suite. We never used our 3rd bedroom, but the price for the entire unit was the same as getting 2 rooms at the Westin, expect here we got a kitchen and a lot of extra space.

The Caribbean Club is a great location across from Foster's, and the fully stocked kitchen allows you to cook a home-cooked meal away from home. We had a "pool view" but even that was awesome. The master bedroom in the unit has a massive balcony that overlooks SMB and the pool. The rooms are incredible, and the unit is beautiful. It is luxury, and the price is not bad at all for family or a group.

The infinity pool looks out to SMB and is wonderful for relaxing.

If you weren't in the Caymans with so much to do, you could easily just stay at The Caribbean Club and relax for your entire vacation.

Perfect location, perfect setting, perfect condo!

I'll preface my review with a little about myself: This is the first review of a product or service that I've ever done. I guess you could say that I'm difficult to please (in fact, my wife often thinks I'm only happy when I'm complaining!). That being said, my recent stay at the Caribbean Club was OUTSTANDING - not a single complaint. This was our second trip to Grand Cayman - stayed at the Ritz for the first trip, prior to our daughter's birth. Our daughter is now a toddler and the Caribbean Club completely fit our wants and needs: picturesque views from the enormous wraparound balcony; literally 50 yards from door to water; central location on Seven Mile Beach (walking distance to the supermarket, which was incredibly convenient for traveling with a small child); well-maintained pool and grounds, which were perfectly uncrowded; a fantastic restaurant on the premises (Luna) and last, but certainly not least, a superb hospitality staff. Danielle herself deserves five stars for meeting all of our accommodation requests, ranging from switching out cribs for our daughter to ensuring grocery delivery prior to our late arrival to arranging transportation for us - simply excellent service. One other amenity that I neglected to mention above was wireless access within our villa - very nice perk!

I can say that I wholeheartedly agree with the other excellent reviews of this property and it will be the first place we look into on our next trip to Grand Cayman!
