Compared to other hotels in the area, this was a bargain. Property is clean, pool is a nice size and enough lounge chairs. The Resturant connected to the hotel has decent food, they had an all you can eat buffet from 12-5pm on Sunday’s for 15 percent bucks which was really good.
The rooms were clean and ok, again your not staying at a $500 a night hotel. Front desk and workers were attentive. Tips: make sure you check your fees which includes resort fee tax and added gratuity for each night. Beach is a few steps from the pool area. Note: The beach tide has now reached so far to the edge that there are only 5 chairs available on their property but you can use the neighboring hotel chairs as well. Get there super early or chairs will go quickly.
Bring water shoes because you will not be able to enter the water barefoot because of the many rocks. Once in the water it’s beautiful. Area around the hotel is peaceful and walking distance to a few bars and restaurants.
Cabs are very expensive! 25 US dollars from the airport to this hotel which is a 10 min drive. We took cabs to Georgetown and it was 15 US dollars for a ride of less than 10 min. I will say the cabs were spacious, clean and drivers were very professional. The big party night is Friday on the island because the bars and clubs close at 2am. Sat’s they all close at 12am.
US dollar is lower than their dollar so be prepared to pay a little more. Example bud light at a really decent bar with dance music Sandbar(Georgetown) was $4.50 cayman and 5.25 US.
18 and over to drink on the island but I didn’t see one person get carded.
Hotel area is safe, Georgetown was safe with no problems if you just don’t stray away to any unknown areas.
Breakfast at the hotel was free with scrabbled eggs and a meat every morning. Juices, cereal and pastries. Good enough to start my day!
If you are on a budget and are not spending to much time in your room I really recommend comfort suites.
Thank you Cayman Islands for the hospitality!
Taxi from airport to hotel took about 15 minutes for $24 USD. Only cash accepted.
The room was ok. Small but enough for 2 adults.
The kitchenette had a coffee maker, plates, bowls, utensils, 2 dish cloths, dish soap ( no sponge). I liked the size of the refrigerator.
The room had a safe but you have to pay $2.5 per night. Iron, ironing board in the room.
Beach: Located a few steps from seven mile beach. Unfortunately there is not much beach to enjoy. You can still sit on a lounge chair but only one row of about 7 chairs will fit in the small stretch of beach. The beach is ROCKY. However, you can take your beach bag, walk along the beach and choose a place to put your towel and relax. We choose a place close to Royal palms. We found no need to rent a lounge chair.
Breakfast: It was good. Hot and cold items. Fruits, yogurt, toast, pancakes, hard boiled eggs, bacon, scrambled eggs, cereal. There is a sign by the breakfast room stating that if you take a food item out of the breakfast room you will be charged $20.
There is a room to store your luggage. WiFi worked perfectly. No reception at the beach.
There is 24 hour coffee /tea and water station.
Good choice for the price.
