We stayed at condo #21. This condo has very high end furniture and amenities and you can beat the location. It is nice to have the Rum Point resort area right next door if you want to get a drink or food, but the Retreat is tucked around the corner and feels very private. Having the management company on-staff is nice for security purposes and they are very helpful in you need anything.

For snorkeling you can walk down the beach (away from Rum Point) and do a drift snorkel 50-75 yards from shore back to the Retreat. On one of our drifts we saw a nurse shark! There are also a couple of buoy's directly off the point of rum point, the first one is about 200yds out, anchored at some great snorkel spots. Rent a kayak to get out there and you can see some bigger fish and a we saw Moray Eel here too.

Very good place if you are looking to get away from the crowds. You will need to rent a car as it is about 45 min from the airport. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Seems like all the Condo's are set up to have a nice view of the ocean. #21 faced the Northeast side.

We stayed in Unit 22 at the Retreat at Rum point. We decided on this complex as we were travelling with our 2 children ages 7 and 9 and read so many positive reviews.

The unit was large and comfortable. It had two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, large open concept kitchen, dining and living area, a screened in lanai with a gorgeous ocean view. We truly had all the comforts of home including an x-box with games. Our boys were in heaven!
The kitchen had plenty of utensils, dishes and pots and pans. There were also bath towels, beach towels, extra bedding and extra pillows provided. The unit also had a washing machine and dryer with detergent included.

The property is lovely and well maintained. There is plenty of parking available, a freshwater pool, and the best beach bar in Rum Point is right next door! Also next door is Red Sail Sports. We booked a boat trip to Stingray City which was fantastic. There is great snorkelling directly out from the beach. Our kids would go out everyday and look for fish.

A car is definitely needed if you decide to stay here. It is about 45 minutes from the airport and the grocery store is about a 15-20 minute drive away. We enjoyed driving around the island. There isn't a lot of traffic and it is quite scenic.

We would recommend staying at the Retreat to anyone.

First time in Grand Cayman and this place made it perfect! The unit is right at the beach front so you just walk out to the beach. The area is quiet and not crowded so if you want a real relaxation, this is the place.
The unit itself is very comfortable, clean and quite cozy. My favorite is that it has a full kitchen with decent knives, chopping boards, and even a chopper! There is also a barbecue grill outside and grilled food is the best when in the beach. I love to cook and I get frustrated with rentals because the kitchen does not have proper gadgets. So I was pleasantly surprised with this unit! :) Definitely going back to this place!

A+ condo rental. Steps from the beach. Great accommodations. Bar and restaurant steps from condo. We stayed in unit 33, ask for it if possible. 3rd floor unit that looks over the beach and boat dock.

This IS the place to stay if going to Cayman. Get away from 7 mile island and get to rum point.

We have stayed at The Retreat several times, most recently in #32. This cond has everything you need, from beach towels to cooking utensils and dishes, and even some snorkel gear. It is steps from the beach and the best snorkeling on the island. If you don't want to cook, the restaurant next door is a perfect solution. We had a couple of meals and many drinks there, all excellent.

The owner was great to work with and very accommodating, Answering all our questions. We will definitely be back. This was the best vacation we have taken in a long time.
