I have kind of a mixed review about this resort. There's things I wish I knew before booking that I didn't read in other reviews. The pros: It's quiet. This is not on 7 mile beach so you're away from the super touristy area, surrounded by a golf course. It's still a very pretty view but you don't get the beach area & there's a million speed bumps going to the resort. There's a free shuttle that will take you anywhere 15 minutes or less away but only from 10am-630pm. If you want to go anywhere before or after, say for dinner at night, you have to plan to take the shuttle and get a taxi back which will cost you at least $20 and that's just for the places nearby. The drivers of these shuttles are SUPER nice so it was a great experience otherwise! Staff at the resort & resturant were also very nice & food was great! The cons: I had no idea that we were staying at the holiday inn resort. I still have no idea why it's even called grand caymanian. You literally walk right to go to grand caymanian and left to go to holiday inn but they're exactly the same, with check in at The Holiday Inn. The hallways smelled bad, like really bad mildew. Our room wasn't very clean when we got in it. Very dated. We said something and they cleaned everyday. If you plan on doing excursions make sure they will come pick you up at this resort. One of the excursions we did picked us up however for the stingray tour, we had to pay for a taxi to another resort on 7 mile beach just to get picked up.

What a wonderful vacation we just had!! The Grand Camanian was as nice as indicated - the staff, food, cleanliness and location - very, very nice!! We’ll be back !!!

Dock was nice. Sucks no real beach to swim. Restaurant dessert was good. Staff friendly. Quiet and low key. Not far from everything. Electricity went out last day of our stay which was really bad. Parking easy.

AC was out for 2 nights... We have a 2 year old. Not a good experience.

The property borders the golf course and the Sound. Very scenic location and very quiet and secure

I liked the location as it was away from the city center but close enough to many of the snorkeling areas. Very lush tropical gardens, absolutely a joy to wake up near the pool and see the ocean! Staff was particularly friendly and so accommodating.

The shuttle is great and also the food at the Blue Iguana is 5 star. Very nice property . Second time staying there. #nagelcontractor

Location. Grounds were beautiful! Staff was responsive to requests and needs.

Absolutely Amazing Property everyone was so helpful, especially Vanessa at the front desk and Mr. Lloyd the driver!!!!

The staff is do friendly and helpful. Lloyd the shuttle driver is wonderful. Loved having a washer/dryer in our room.

The hotel staff did not take my room service tray out of the room the following day when they came in to clean. They did not replace the coffee until I asked. The facility needs to have bikes to rent.

Loved the place and would re visit anytime...clean good staff and the food was great...

Thank you for sharing a few words with your follow travelers! We are happy to hear you have enjoyed your stay with us overall. Unfortunately the power outage was out of our control, the local power company confirmed approximate 10,000 customers across the island were without electricity that morning for as much as an hour. We are sorry to all of our guests who were impacted by the outage. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back at any time!
