Editor’s Review of Wyndham Reef Resort

Diana Lambdin Meyer Editor’s Rating 5/5 If you're looking to escape the congestion and commercialism of Seven Mile Beach and the George Town area during a Cayman vacation, you'll love the Wyndham Reef Resort. Located on the East End, about 45 minutes from George Town, the Wyndham Reef Resort has a fabulous beach that offers spectacular access to the Caribbean Sea, and an aura of remoteness that contributes to a relaxing vacation.

The East End is the drier end of Grand Cayman, which means that even in the rainy season of June, July and August, rain rarely ruins a day at the beach. However, it is a little breezier on this end of the island, which is not a bad thing in the heat of the summer.

The East End is also the less developed end of the island,
... more with more vacation homes and condos along with independent restaurants and locally owned businesses. The Wyndham Reef Resort opened in 2001 with just one two-story building for lodging and a small administrative center with a restaurant and bar. Now the property includes four buildings, two swimming pool complexes, a tennis court, a spa, and a gym, all side-by-side along the length of the ocean.

Each room has an ocean view facing east. Patios on the ground level are no more than a half dozen steps from the gorgeous white-sand beach. The second- and third-floor rooms have spacious balconies perfect for enjoying a morning breakfast or evening beverage.

The Wyndham Reef Resort holds the distinction of being the only all-inclusive resort on Grand Cayman, and offers three packages to meet the interests and budgets of as many guests as possible. With fully equipped kitchens and a nearby grocery store, many families choose to gather around the outdoor grills and picnic on the beach. But if you're not so inclined, you can enjoy the offerings of the onsite restaurants.

Among those who enjoy the amenities of the Wyndham Reef Resort on a daily basis are Cosmo and Martini, two fat lazy cats whose demands for attention must be fulfilled without question by young and old guests. less

How often, if ever, have your kids slept in a Murphy bed -- you know, the ones that fold down from the wall? They may get to try one at the Wyndham Reef Resort!

Most of the 152 units are one-bedroom condos with options for adjoining units. Only 11 units are true two-bedroom condos. The bedrooms include a king-sized bed and a private balcony overlooking the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped, and if you like, a concierge service will even have the refrigerator stocked with your family's favorite foods.

But the accommodations for kids are certainly a step up from a pullout couch. The living area, which comes with a rattan loveseat and two matching side chairs, faces a wall of what appears to be bookshelves. ... more Here you'll find the television, DVD player and a few other amenities. But look closely -- the handles on either side of the television cabinet pull down to reveal two twin beds. Kids absolutely love the novelty of this.

There is no extra charge for cribs, and plenty of space for them in either the adult bedroom or in the living room where the Murphy beds are located. A rollaway bed is available in the two-bedroom suites for an additional $50 charge per day.

Each of the one-bedroom units is equipped with just one rather small bathroom that includes a shower/tub combo, hair dryer and Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries. An ironing board is tucked away in the closet, but coin-operated guest laundry facilities are located on the lowest level of each building. Two bedroom units have two bathrooms.

Housekeeping comes once a day to make beds, empty trash and provide fresh linens, but other housekeeping chores are your responsibility. Wireless Internet is available through the property for an extra charge, but unless you really need to be connected several times a day, here's a tip -- Just across the road is a shopping center that includes a Dunkin' Donuts. It offers free Wi-Fi, and lots of people take advantage while enjoying a cup of coffee and a jelly donut.

Another tip -- you may want to request a certain room location when making your reservation. Families with younger children may appreciate being in Building A or B, where the pool is a little more child-friendly. Older children may appreciate being in building C or D, because the game room and gym are located in the lower level of building D. Although there is an elevator, buildings C and D are also four-stories high.

A nice aspect of guestrooms is the abundance of electrical outlets for laptops, iPods, and all of the typical modern toys. But if your toddlers and crawlers are tempted to explore electrical outlets, be sure to request outlet covers in your room before you arrive; housekeeping will gladly provide as many as you need. less
