“Paradise on Paradise Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

Little Cayman is a must if you just want to get away from it all. Undeveloped, but everything you need. Hopefully the island will stay this way and leave Grand Cayman as the big metropolis.

Paradise Villas are right next to the airstrip - not that that's a problem! With a rear porch next to the beach and overlooking the south sound, it is an idyllic location. Accommodation is fairly basic and with a small kitchenette, very clean, and well kept. Air conditioned, which is a must in the summer months. Manager Marc is very friendly, as are all the staff.

This was a return trip following our honeymoon in 2011, and there were a few welcome improvements, particularly the new chef at the Hungry Iguana restaurant on site. Food was good, tasty and prepared from fresh ingredients. Excellent, given this is an isolated island.

Shame the British Pound is so weak against the US dollar, which makes it relatively expensive for European visitors A great place that we will look forward to returning to in future!

Room Tip: Only a few rooms, all of the same design. All are good; those with the higher numbers are nearer to...

Excellent time and very nice villa. Right on the beach, front and back patio. The resturant and bar (Hungry Iguana) is excellent! The couple who runs it are very nice and very welcoming, they pick you up from the AirPort. Perfect time!

Second time in less than a year and hopefully can squeeze in November. Oceanfront with pool and restaurant/bar next door. Good food.......had lionfish for the first time. Scuba diving with Conch Club Divers was great. Looking to relax, this is it. If you want to party, you will be on the wrong island. Bring bagels, cream cheese, tuna fish in packets for sandwiches and wine will save you a few bucks. Groceries are very expensive. Other resorts on Little Cayman are all inclusive and expensive. May never use our timeshare in Grand Cayman again. This is the place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good.

If you are looking to truly "get away from it all" this is the place! Cozy beach side cottages with all the amenities and the best ocean view. Go for a dive, take a bike ride or sit in a hammock and read -this place is special. We took my mother there for a one night stay before she was heading back to Canada and the following morning we were all saying the same thing "how long have we been here?" It was amazing how 1 relaxing night felt like we had been there for a week. Highly receommend it!

After years of being told by our friends on Grand that I must visit Little Cayman we finally booked a fortnight on the island. Not wanting a full-board experience we opted for Paradise Villas which offered us the flexibility we wanted. Marc and Sabine were very welcoming and were able to deal with any questions we had but to be honest, we didn't really have any as the place ran so smoothly. There was a slight mix-up with our diving booking but Marc took care of everything and got us spaces with Reef Divers rather than the affiliated Conch Club Divers who were fully booked. We are already planning another trip for next year.

Paradise Villas under the guidance of Marc and Sabine continue to provide meticulously clean, comfortable and safe accommodations in Little Cayman Island. Repeat visitors are treated as friends and family. The Hungry Iguana is better than ever with their new chef.

Conch Club Divers (boat Capt. Bill; dive instructors Matt and Claire) offer concierge diving on the beautiful Bloody Bay wall. Guided tours are the norm but buddies can explore on their own. My only reservation is that more guidance should be provided to newer divers to avoid damage to the reef. The Sea Esta gets a bit crowded with more than 15 divers. Nevertheless individual attention is paid to all. CCD seems to attract a mellower diver which I greatly appreciate.

Guests at both Paradise villas and Conch Club Divers often book their next dive trip when leaving Little Cayman Island.

Room Tip: Villas one through four seem more private.

My wife and I were looking for a Caribbean getaway without all the crowds and Paradise Villas was great choice. Little Cayman Island is known for its diving. My wife and I are not divers however most of the other guests were. The divers would leave in the morning and come back mid afternoon leaving the pool, lounge area and most of the resort grounds pretty much all for ourselves. Marc and Sabine were great hosts, answering all our questions and providing great advice. We were even invited to play street hockey one night with a group of locals which was A LOT of fun! The villa was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we could need. The view from the porch (which is shared with a neighboring guest) overlooking the ocean was great! There is a restaurant that is associated with the resort which is open for lunch and dinner. They have a smaller menu with daily specials however everything we tried was excellent (the Lionfish meals and the desserts were great!). On a side note, we highly recommend going to Pirates Point once or twice for dinner. It was amazing! We also rented a scooter for the day which we highly recommend (check out Point of Sand and take a ride around the Island). Only downsides from our trip were that the WIFI was spotty (but hey, we were on vacation trying to get away from civilization!) and the beach access wasn't great at the resort (but overall, the beach access on the Island didn't seem to be the best, alot of rocky shores). Also, beware that there is only one food store on the island so prices are a bit steep. OVERALL, we had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here, especially to divers. Thanks again to Marc and Sabine for making us feel right at home!

Room Tip: All the villas had great views of the ocean. Villa # 11 where we stayed was right next to the pool...
