Editor’s Review of The Caribbean Club

The best vacation properties make you feel like a pampered V.I.P., and at the end of our stay at the Caribbean Club in Grand Cayman, we felt spoiled. Returning to normal life was a drag.

The resort's allure begins with the location. Located an hour south of Miami, the Cayman Islands are a trio of tiny islands in the Western Caribbean, known for their tranquil, picturesque beaches and some of the world's best scuba diving.

This "boutique residence hotel" consists of 37 independently owned units, which combine the conveniences of home with many hotel amenities, including daily housekeeping and turndown service. You won't find organized children's programs or a variety of onsite dining options, but you will have access to a
... more superlative beach on the Caribbean Sea. Plus, the spacious units offer fully equipped kitchens, washers and dryers.

The Caribbean Club sits on a private, 300-foot stretch along Seven Mile Beach, in the West Bay district of the island. The location is ideal to enjoy colorful sunsets from your balcony, or take long walks in the soft sand. The Caribbean Sea is calm here, with clear, aquamarine water.

The 2,700-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bath units are professionally decorated with glamour and sophistication in mind. The attention to detail includes top brands -- Kohler faucets, Wusthof knives and Liz Claiborne bedroom furniture. Though our room was delightfully deluxe, I was only able to relax because my youngest, at six years old, knows how to behave among fine things. I would not have been entirely comfortable here when she was a more destructive two-year-old.

In addition to hosting family leisure travel, this property is popular for destination weddings. less

Whoever writes a negative review about this hotel probably has kids. This hotel (pool, beach also) is quiet and upscale with a fantastic staff. People with kids should stay at a Disney Resort or larger chain hotel with all the ...

Rooms

The Caribbean Club units are categorized as Pavilion Villas or Tower Villas, depending on the wing in which they are located. All units sleep up to six people, with three or four bedrooms and three bathrooms. All units have at least a partial sea view, although most have a full view.
Our unit was on the fifth floor. In terms of security, I appreciated that key cards are required in the elevators to gain access to the upper room levels.

Each villa has a private balcony large enough to accommodate a breakfast table and additional cushioned seating. We spent hours enjoying the outdoor space and the sea views, cooled by ceiling fans.

Our unit consisted of a great room with the kitchen overlooking a large dining room and a seating area in front of a wide, flat panel TV. The master bedroom, with a king-sized bed, had two walk-in closets, and an en suite bathroom with a shower and separate jet tub. The master bedroom felt like an oasis at the end of the day, enhanced by high-end extra touches like 330-count bed linens, plush robes, slippers and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.

The second bedroom, with a queen-sized bed, also had an en suite bathroom. The third bedroom had two twin beds. There was also a full bathroom in the hallway.

The main living area and all three bedrooms have 32- or 42-inch plasma screen televisions. Cable service comes from Miami, and includes the Disney Channel, Tooncast, and PBS. A selection of DVD's are also available to borrow from the front desk. There are movies for all age groups: our 13-year old chose Harry Potter, and our six-year old picked Tangled.

The fully equipped "gourmet" kitchen was a treat to use, and included black granite countertops, a double oven and stove top, a refrigerator with an icemaker, a microwave, dishwasher, trash compactor, and countertop appliances, including a coffee maker. You'll find full sets of dishes, glassware, pots, pans, cutlery and cooking utensils. Special services, available for an additional charge, include a personal chef or catering.

Additionally, you can request that your kitchen be stocked to your specifications when you arrive. You provide a supermarket list with specific brands and items, and the staff will shop for you. You will pay an additional 20 percent above the price of the groceries. You can also do your own shopping; the Foster's Food Fair supermarket, an IGA franchise, is located across the street.

Off the kitchen is a laundry room with a front-loading washer and dryer. There is high speed Wi-Fi Internet access in each villa, plus private phone lines with voicemail.

Turndown service with chocolates is a welcome treat, but the staff knocked on our door at 8:00 p.m. each night we were there, and our daughter was already in bed. A limited number of cribs are available with advance request, for an extra fee per day.
