If you are looking for a Hilton quality resort with all of the amenities, Carib Sands Beach Resort isn't the answer, but then neither is Cayman Brac. From my family's experience, Carib Sands Beach Resort is the best place to stay on the island. The condo style resort is basic, clean and comfortable. We arrived late at night and were a bit reluctant at first, but this quickly dissipated the next day. We settled in nicely and very much enjoyed our stay for a week. The basic pool and deck are private and well cared for. The dock and the associated marine life is fascinating. The view of the ocean is nice. While the beach is a bit rustic, it is typical of the island.
All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. When walking around the first morning, I ran into the maintenance man . He stopped me to shake my hand and introduce himself. The office staff tried to help with all of my requests and obtained a car for us after I figured out one was a must on the island.
One suggestion is to ask for a condo with a clear view of the ocean. Also, if you're a diver, we highly recommend that you book with Brac Scuba Shop about 300 yards down the road and boat pick up at the resort.
The reason we gave the resort 4 stars is because there are no truly 5 star locations on Cayman Brac.
We are very much look forward to the next time we can stay at the Carib Sands resort.
