Editor’s Review of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman
World-class diving and snorkeling lure vacationers to the Cayman Islands. Many dive enthusiasts head to Little Cayman, 67 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, but Grand Cayman, the most developed of the three islands in the Cayman archipelago (the third is Cayman Brac) delivers some great dive and snorkeling sites.
When the Ritz first opened, the $500 ... more million property brought top-tier luxury and service to Grand Cayman along with prices to match. Among the 365-rooms are 24 one-, two- and three-bedroom residential suites, complete with full kitchens. These units, as well as a tower of privately owned properties not in the rental pool, face the ocean. Check-in for the residential suites is at a special desk on the ocean side.
For families, the key to enjoying the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman resort is to understand the resort's lay-out. More guestrooms are on the resort side, facing the golf course or pool, than on the ocean side. Ocean views are possible, but those rooms and suites go for a premium. An enclosed, air-conditioned tunnel connects the resort's two sides. The hotel brochure notes that from some rooms it's only a "five minute" walk to the beach. That's not long unless you're toting a cranky toddler and juggling a bag of beach toys, bottles and diapers. Families with young kids may prefer the oceanfront suites. For other families, the walk to the beach presents no problem. less

RoomsLike all Ritz-Carlton properties, this one offers over-sized accommodations. The rooms come with good-sized marble bathrooms with double vanities, and a separate shower and tub, handy for those young kids who haven't quite caught on to the joys of showering. The in-room refrigerator is stocked, there are fluffy bathrobes, a DVD player, free Wi-Fi and a coffeemaker.
Basic rooms, whether oceanfront or resort view, come with a balcony and are 480 square ft. There's plenty of room for a crib or a cot. If traveling with young kids ask for a POLO (Protect Our Little Ones) kit. The electrical outlet plugs, a night light and a tub spout cover help baby-proof your room.
Along with individual rooms, the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman offers a variety of suites, including one- to three-bedroom residential suites that are owned but placed back in the rental pool. These units range from 1,200-square feet for a one-bedroom, 1,800-square feet for a two-bedroom and 2,400-square feet for a three-bedroom. Each unit comes with a washer and dryer, a full kitchen with black granite counters, a living area with a sleeper sofa, a separate large master bedroom big enough for a cot or a crib, plus, in the larger units, additional bedrooms and baths. Families seeking more space than a standard room, but less than the 1,200-square foot one-bedroom residential suite, should consider the Harbour Suites. At 960-square feet, the unit has two balconies, a living area with a sleeper sofa (good for young kids) a large master bedroom and one-and-a-half baths.
