The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Seven Mile Beach
Reviewed 23 November 2012

I finally had enough Marriott Points to book a 3 night stay here, and I'm so glad I did! Even if you use points, you still have to pay a daily $50 resort fee, but that includes valet parking, wifi, access to the Silver Rain spa facilities, water sport rentals, and more so it's worth it!

The best part was being able to rent snorkel gear, a stand up paddle board, and a kayak with a glass bottom for free! The beach chairs are really nice, too: padded with a terrycloth cover and adjustable shade. On calmer days, they have water hammocks and floating dining tables set up at the edge of the swimming area.

My friends and I booked the special 45 minute massage deal but ended up spending more than 2 hours in the spa because there were so many other amenities to enjoy including a hot tub, steam room, sauna, and La Prairie products. My masseuse was Dawn, and she was awesome!

The service was impeccable with everyone going out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Henry, one of the doormen, can recommend local places to eat, and Spence can recommend the best snorkeling spots and where to find a real, local farmer's market.

I'm usually the type of person that wakes up when the sun rises while on vacation because I want to head out and enjoy the day, but I found myself sleeping in a little because the beds were just so comfortable. The room comes with a DVD player, and you can rent DVDs from the Concierge. The bath tub and shower were separate, and the bath tub is nice and deep (which I really appreciate).

Every morning I would get some free coffee from the Silver Palm Lounge and buy a chocolate croissant from the Cupboard (ask, and they'll warm it up for you) and eat it on the beach. We had lunch at Periwinkle, and you HAVE to try the truffle parmesan fries. They are to die for. The bartender also makes a really good virgin ginger mojito with fresh ginger.

We ate at Taikun the first night the restaurant reopened, and it was just okay. The (new) furniture was a little awkward to use while sitting because the couches were too set back and the table was too low. The food was also just okay; nothing really impressive. I much preferred my previous experience at Blue, but it was still under renovations.

Every day that we were here, you could see 2 or 3 large cruise ships docked at Georgetown, but thankfully, on this property, you don't even notice the influx of thousands of people to the island.

Hotel , rooms , all bars and restaurants , beach are excellent. All property well maintained, small art gallery in hallway was very nice . As we requested gluten free food options they were provided and staff very well informed and helpful. Highly recommended for dining or just a drink as well.

The Ritz-Carlton in Grand Cayman totally made our vacation - I can't imagine staying anywhere else and having as much fun. From the beautiful and comfy room, to the kind staff, to the UNBELIEVABLE amenities... if you splurge anywhere on your Grand Cayman vacation, this is where you will get the most returns.

We were here for 7 days/6 nights on our honeymoon!

Highlights:
-Delicious, gourmet buffet breakfast every morning in their Blue restaurant
-Decor invokes a sense of tropical paradise and luxury, and all facilities were impeccably maintained, clean, polished, and perfect!
-BEACH AND POOLSIDE AMENITIES - the service is absolutely outstanding
-Ambassadors of the Environment program - we did the mangrove kayak trip and the shipwreck snorkeling trip and these trips were well-priced and unforgettable experiences
-Staff goes above and beyond to make you feel like an absolute celebrity... I have too many examples to list but the personal touches on every aspect of our stay just really blew our minds
*** WORLD'S MOST INCREDIBLE PINA COLADAS - don't miss out! ***

Cons:
-It's pricey. BUT you get what you pay for :)

By far one of the best experiences ever! I have stayed at numerous Ritz Carltons in the US and Carribean. I spent 2 nights at the Marriott in Cayman for an event and the rest of the week at the Ritz. Grand Cayman itself is pricey so i will not complain about price. If you've stayed at the Ritz before you know you pay extra for luxury, so stop complaining. The service was outstanding at the Ritz and the beach is amazing! The spa is top notch, the gym is great as well. I had the club level and the club was very good. The room was unavailable that week so the club was in a temporary location which was nice as well. Snorkeling was amazing, i saw plenty of fish, sting rays and a 5 foot baracuda! The beach is ideal for children because there are practically NO WAVES. So you feel nice and safe there. Golf was pretty cool. There is water on 8 out of 9 holes. So keep the ball in play!

When we entered the island the airport process where the simplest ever. The island had a very tropical feel. The lobby was beautiful along with the rest of the property. They are very family friendly and it has a very resort like feel. The room was very big and nice, we got upgraded to an ocean view after using fine hotels and resorts to book it. All of the staff where very helpful and kind and it is my favorite beach yet.

Room Tip: Fine hotels and resorts for booking

stayed here for 7 days on a family vacation, the service was outstanding and all the staff was super friendly. the beach area was beautiful and well kept, probably the best area compared to the other hotel beach area, the staff at the beach and pool area were fantastic If money is not really an issue than this is the place to stay when visiting the grand cayman, the food and beverages are pricey here but what else would you expect staying at a high end resort, but there are places off the resort that are cheaper to eat and u can go across the street to pick up alcohol and other things like snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Even if it is to pricey to stay here for a week i would highly recommend staying for at least a couple of nights here to see and enjoy what it is like to stay somewhere where you are treated like royalty. the resort is so accommodating you never have to worry about anything, just ask them for assistance and they will make everything so easy. great place for a family vacation they have a great kids club and the resort is kid friendly.

just spent four nights there and it was great. hotel is large, but new and very well appointed and very well kept. service was impeccable. it is expensive, but you do get what you pay for here. workout facility is big and well stocked. bottled waters and flavored waters all around and are included. particularly loved the "funcat"--a motorized floating chaise lounge for cruising around the ocean--included with the room. congrats to manager ben morton for running a great resort
