Reviewed 18 May 2011

I have stayed at #40 in the Cayman Reef Resort for several business trips over the last couple months. Always staying for 4-5 days at a time, always in the same place. The condo is perfect for my needs and is in a great location. Its always clean, everything works, views are amazing, rooms comfortable, absolutely no issues with anything. I have even held business meetings at the condo with others who live on the island and they always comment on how great the condo is.

Take it from someone who is there every couple of weeks, this place is great, if you are lucky enough to secure a reservation.

Room Tip: Book early

I've frequented Grand Cayman for years, including Cayman Reef Resort. First, let me say, that while it may seem expensive, it is way cheaper than almost anywhere else on Seven Mile Beach. But don't let that fool you-- the condos are great! The location is fantastic, there's parking, everything is nearby, a pool, gorgeous beach, etc.

I've gone with friends and stayed in a few apartments. I read the review below about #40, and I have to COMPLETELY disagree. It actually prompted me to write this review. We thought that the unit was absolutely amazing. 1) It is actually ON the beach. You look out the window onto the ocean and sands. It's amazing. 2) It's got three lovely rooms. One of the beds has a beautiful canopy, another room was perfect for two friends who didn't want to share a bed, and the last room has a fantastic view. 3) It has a gorgeous living room. There is clear glass that looks out onto the beach, unlike the screens in other units. It has a a huge television, a kitchen (and food is expensive on Grand Cayman, so having a kitchen is super nice), and the bathroom has a beautiful shower.

I have to heartily recommend Cayman Reef Resort, and unit 40 in particular. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Make sure to book early for winter months!

We are long time renters in Grand Cayman and have stayed many places. Cayman Reef #40 is by far our number one favorite. The view is incredible and it is close to everything. It is bright and sunny with beautiful decor. Three bedrooms and two baths. Excellent on sight manager. We look forward to our next vacation there.

We stayed in a privately owned condo at the Cayman Reef Resort. The location is right on 7 mile beach and the private beach area at the condos was outstanding. Right in front of the condo was excellent snorkeling and diving. We have two children under the age of 12 and I never once was worried about them swimming out in the ocean. It was safe and great for them. The condos themselves are in good condition and we are already planning our next trip back. We rented a 3 bedroom and had plenty of space for 7 people. Pool is a little small but who needs a big pool when you have the ocean at your front door?

Seven Mile Beach is an idyllic destination and who wouldn't want to overlook this wonderful beach. However location isnt everything. We booked Apartment 40 and as a family can suffer dated but not dirty. This apartment was a disgrace, layers of dust and dirt and filled with junk including leftover tiles and paint although we couldn't see where it had been used. The upholstery was filthy, units covered in sticky fingerprints and it stank. Needless to say the owner doesn't agree but where is she? Not on site. So is poss unaware of what is happening. We had friends come to help us move and they were horrified. Don't stay here. We didn't.

Room Tip: The resort may have better apartments. we can #40.

Stayed at the unit in the following link: http://www.caymanreefresort56.com/index.html The owner of this condo was very good and helpful.
We are a family of four with two children ages 6 & 7 boy and girl. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with more than enough room for everyone . This condo was fully outfitted with all types of dishes and appliances and built in dishwasher. The kitchen was complete with all products necessary for cleaning if you desire . There were both washer and dryer again with washing products available. Beach towels were also made available with sand and water toys which we did not bring so the kids were excited about that. On days when we stayed in our condo the kids were occupied with a gaming system and games available. The condo has also provided movies should you feel like staying in . Our bedrooms were very clean and the linens and mattress were high quality and were more comfortable then our own at home. Everything you need is near by walking distance and if you desire, transportation is easy to get just outside the condo to take you anywhere. Downtown was only about a 15 min drive. Restaurants ranged from fast-food to sit down and again all walking distance.
The resort is on a very clean white sand beach and the water is safe for the younger children to play in with no concerns. The pool on site was the first salt water pool we swan in and again very clean and enjoyable. On a different note, we had an incident with our child onsite and there just happen to be a local Cayman Doctor who was able to attend to us free of charge to give us an opinion and called the hospital ahead for us and we were given preferred treatment and skipped the waiting line in the local hospital which again was about 15 min away. The service and locals were so friendly and helpful. Overall we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend staying here. Our young family felt like we were in a home away from home. We would definitely like to return. Note: these are condos and NOT a party resort with organized activities. Cayman is expensive so the added kitchens are very beneficial in saving money dining out. Scuba diving was 11 out of 10!! Snorkelling the same. Beautiful coral fish 40 feet from the beach.

Room Tip: The owner of this condo (see link) was VERY good.

This is one of the best locations on 7 mile beach for a wonderful view and very nice beach. My famly has been returning to Cayman for over 8 years and seem to enjoy the RCC time and time again. This year, they have completly updated the pool as well as more tropical plants on property. Our 1 Bedroom condo had been completed with new tile, kitchen cabnets and enclosed glass porch with beautiful ocean front view. This is a very well done "older, but very nice" complex. Enjoyed a short walk to the new Camana Bay shopping area and local restruants. Really liked the sunset and calm waves. I will be returning for 2 weeks next year.
