Editor’s Review of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman

The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, an AAA Five Diamond property, stretches across a main road on Grand Cayman, occupying 144-acres that reach from the ocean side to the North Sound on the inland side, called the "resort side." The ocean side fronts a wide, beautiful stretch of famed Seven Mile Beach.

When the Ritz first opened, the $500-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.

... more /> For families, the key to enjoying the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman resort is understanding the resort's layout. 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. Families with young kids may prefer the oceanfront suites. For other families, the walk to the beach presents no problem. less

Like all Ritz-Carlton properties, this one offers oversized accommodations. The rooms come with good-sized marble bathrooms with double vanities, and a separate shower and tub, handy for young kids. The in-room refrigerator is stocked and there are fluffy bathrobes, a DVD player, free Wi-Fi and a coffeemaker.

Tip: Book a Club Level room for access to the Club Lounge, where you'll find complimentary food and drink throughout the day. The Ritz-Carlton is the only Grand Cayman resort with a club lounge.

Basic rooms, whether oceanfront or resort view, come with a balcony and are 480 square feet in size. 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 are the following sizes: 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.

Seven South
For ultimate seclusion and privacy, book one of the 11 suites in Seven South, a new wing that was added to the resort in recent years. Options include two-room suites or the crown jewel of the resort, the Grand Cayman Penthouse.
