I am a very particular traveler, I like things nice! Well I certainly found it at the Aqua Bay Club. Our condo #7 was well appointed, comfortable and very clean. Nothing was run down or dated as you can find in other properties. The beach by this property was excellant, a few stones but nothing that would inhibit you from snorkeling right outside your door. If you want quiet, relaxation and convenience, this is the place to stay.
We plan on returning next year and will definately stay at Aqua Bay Club, no need to searce for anyplace else.

Room Tip: Unit 7 was a ground floor condo which we enjoyed but any unit is convenient based on the size of thi...

We recently stayed at Aqua Bay Club in unit 11. It exceeded our expectations! The snorkeling was the main reason we chose this location, and we were not let down. It was excellent. The Cemetery Reef is within walking distance down the beach.

We loved our condo. It was comfortable, supremely clean and just perfect for our family of four. My husband's cousin and his family also rented a condo in this complex, and they found it to be equally perfect for their family.

We will definitely come back here again. One of the best, most relaxing vacations of our life.

Room Tip: The West End of Grand Cayman is amazing. Staying here, you are really away from it all, but near the...

We rented a one bedroom unit for 6 nights earlier this month. (All units have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths but since there were only 2 of us we only used the rear bedroom and bath. The other bedroom was open so we used it to store our luggage.) The units are very spacious and ours was very nicely furnished. The kitchen was very well supplied. We ate most of our meals at the condo - all breakfasts, some lunches and all but 2 dinners. A Fosters supermarket is less a mile away but we also bought fresh fish at the outdoor fish market two doors south of Casanovas in Georgetown. One night we grilled chicken on one of the Weber grills on the beach. (Same Weber we have at home.) But we selected Aqua Bay because we love to snorkel and our favorite reef is cemetery which is only about 300 yards North of Aqua Bay. One day we swam to and from cemetery reef from right out in front but its a ways. Staff was helpful and friendly and the road noise was not a problem as some reviewers have said. We will be back next year and try to stay in the same unit.

Room Tip: Check the Aqua Bay web site for photos of all the units.

We've stayed in Unit #3 at Aqua Bay Club for 5 years now and have loved each visit. The staff are very friendly, the units are well-stocked and the location is ideal. ABC is on the quiet, north end of the beach so there are never any crowds and you have lots of space to roam. There are only about 20 condos so there's always space at the pool and always chairs on the beach. We'll certainly be back again next Christmas.

Room Tip: Our family has stayed in #2, #3 and #4 for years. You can walk right out to the pool and the beach...

We rented #18 for 6 days (top floor) and had the best time. The condo was very well equipped, had everything we could think of that we might need for our vacation and then more. The view from the condo was wonderful, miles of blue ocean and white sandy beach. The position of the ABC is great too – well away from the busy end of Seven Mile Beach, no fighting for sunbeds or a patch of beach for us!! The downside is that you have to drive to restaurants so for us a hire car was essential. For information the one night we used a taxi down to Luca (great restaurant) it was $27 plus tip for the return trip.
Pros:
• Very well-equipped
• Stylish furniture
• Good snorkelling outside the condo and even better just up the beach at Cemetery beach (directly out about 150 yards from either the end of the cemetery)
• Spacious
• Deena and Renda in the office were very helpful and so keen to deal with anything we asked
Cons:
• Top floor was not easy to get the heavy bags to (no lift) so if that is going to be an issue might be better considering a lower floor (but would not have such a good view)
• The road noise and chickens people have mentioned (but we took ear plugs after reading the other reviews)
• The balcony area was screened with mosquito/bug netting which was great but there were no ‘lounging’ chairs out there for use, only dining chairs, so it was not easy to relax out there

Restaurants: as I said above Luca was great (we went for our 30th wedding anniversary meal, hence the taxi), we also very much enjoyed Pappagallo’s (see my review), The Wharf (for the food and the tarpon feeding, not as much for the rather odd service, alternating between being ignored and then being smothered with attention!!) and Ragazzi (the best value for money we had, really good food and not over the top on prices).
On the other side of the island - The Lighthouse at Breakers and On the Edge, on the road to Rum Point (amazing sitting on the deck with frigate birds soaring overhead).

Room Tip: Go for #18 you will not regret it

We have been coming to Grand Cayman 3-5 times a year since 2000, and have been staying almost exclusively at Aqua Bay Club since 2006. It is a quiet, small property (only 21 units), well away from the often crowded beaches near Georgetown. The property offers the best shade on 7MB. The beach is a *little* rocky on entry, but ABC actually gained beach in a storm last year.

The units are each different, with decor ranging from traditional Caribbean to Mediterranean, but all are immaculate, and the service is great. Deena and Renda, and all the housekeeping staff are wonderful. If you find even the smallest problem, they are right on it.

I have severe allergies, which makes travelling quite challenging, but Miss Vernice always takes excellent care of our unit, so I know I never need to worry.

Casual Dining: Chicken-Chicken
Upscale Dining: The Wharf or Guy Harvey's

My husband, son and I spent the week of August 20th at the Aqua Bay Club. The two bedroom condo on the first floor was simply top notch. Starting with the shiny tiled entry way that ran the length of the unit, to the immaculate kitchen with new appliances and the sunken living room with fashionable, comfortable furniture. Even the beds were comfortable!! The screened in porch was the perfect place to start the morning and end the day.

Aqua Bay is just a half block walk down the beach to the best snorkeling we have had in quite a while. The cemetery beach has a coral reef with lots of mature fish. We saw something new each day that we went out. The pool and sand area was perfect for spending hours reading. The one drawback was that there were a lot of small rocks when entering the water in front of the condo.

Aqua Bay Club was a great find and we will gladly stay there again when we return to the Island.

Room Tip: While the first floor was awsome, we did hear the people above us.
