Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was our 5th trip to GC. We usually stay at the Westin, which is up the road. The Westin was under construction when we were there last year and sucked, so we decided to try the Marriott. Reviews indicated it was equivalent. It is NOT equivalent to the Westin. Not even close. So stay at the Westin--they cost the same. Why? (1) The beach area at the Marriott is lame. It is WAY smaller than the Westin's beach and the chairs are crammed together. You have to get out there by 8 am to get a good spot, otherwise, you are screwed. But even the good spots aren't that good. The beach ambience is closer to South Padre Island (spring break destination) than Grand Cayman. There is this giant "turtle courtyard" that is fun if you are under 10, otherwise it's not usable. Most importantly, there is also not any place to just sit on comfortable lounge chairs and overlook the beach (the Westin has tons of this, many seating areas are covered with giant ceiling fans). At the Marriott, other than the beach chairs (see above), the only seating is at the pool or at the restaurant. This is something we didn't realize how much we appreciated until we didn't have it. We ended up going to the Westin every morning for coffee and hanging out there. Now that the Westin remodel is done, we are never going anywhere else again. Upsides to Marriott: (1) Drinks at bar are good, (2) food at restaurant is good, (3) staff is super-good. What you need to know: Go to the Westin.

We stayed for 3 nights, we were very impressed with the hospitality and overall service.we were greeted with some fresh Mango lemonade which was really nice and refreshing. Hotel was very conveniently located. There was an Indian wedding going on so the pool area was closed off for a few hours one day and than part of the beach area was also closed off for a few hours the next day as well as the bar in hte lobby but it didn't really directly interfere with what we wanted to do. We absolutely recommend this hotel and will definitely go back.

My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time at the Marriott.. decor is beautiful and clean, the restaurant was awesome (book your reservation for the Sunday brunch asap) THE STAFF were so friendly, kind, and funny, they made us feel like we were at home!!! In conclusion, BOOK IT! You won't be disappointed :) -28 yr old from NYC Thank you to the bellmen (Nelson), bar tenders and cocktail waitress (evens) and the pool guys (Lloyd you rock)

Very attentive staff. A bit crowded on the beach right at the resort, but the beach opens up if you walk couple of minutes away. Would definitely stay again!

It's overpriced if you're spending more than $400 a night. The facilities are not super up to date. The pool is tiny and the private beach is also small with little room between chairs and very small amount of square footage for being on the beach. You have to get there before 9:30am to get a beach chair. The waiter service at the beach could be more frequent.

This is my 10th year here. Each year gets better. Eating breakfast and the manager asked about our food. Few questions about a drive to Rum Point and he came back with directions and suggestions. Another way they go out of their way to take care of you. Everyone is friendly and goes out of their way to make your day enjoyable.

Great location, very friendly staff, clean beach, beautiful sunsets, lots of activities, spacious rooms, Delicious rum drinks!

On the beach, close to restaurants ,staff is great!

The upgraded facility feels very intimate, with fabulous service , great food and a great beach,

Great facility right on the beach. The staff was very attentive and friendly - especially Aldo. He went out of his way to assist everyone with their Go-Pro's and any other needs. Hope to go back very soon.

Excellent hotel and right on the beach. Reef is right there. You could snorkeling gears and under water camera etc. that was good. Staff would be very to happy to provide umbrella, chairs, towels etc. overall experience was excellent.

Upon arrival with the airport taxi, the instant help from the hotel staff was a great first impression. The friendly welcome drink was a cool and refreshing followup from the rather hot and sweaty check in at the airport, which could definitely use a good overhaul.

Fabulous experience! The employees always had friendly smiles and shining eyes where ever we went, and everyone was helpful and accomodating. I rode a jet ski for the first time just outside our hotel! The water was calm and turquoise and shallowm near the shore. Swam with the dolphins for the first time a short cab ride away. Sailed a sunset cruise dinner a short cab ride away. OR the local bus stops just outside the hotel and only $2.50 USD! Went to George town on the local bus...much cheaper than the cab! Highly recommend the Marriott Hotel and Grand Cayman!

Definitely book ocean front, up high if you can. Was worth the extra cost. Everything is very expensive, but it is an island. The hotel staff was excellent except for maybe 2 of them, both had attitudes. There is a $50 daily resort fee with each room, but included umbrellas, chairs, etc.

Very nice place; everything was a bit pricey. But would definitely return..

The front desk hotel staff was not cooperative to make their costumer happy and give them the room for what the costumer actually booked.

Nice hotel on the beach. Great staff. Great hotel for families

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary! The staffs were unbelievably attentive and always provided wonderful services!!! The hotel lobby and the surrounding were very pretty and clean. The room is nothing special, just like any other Marriott. Overall, we definitely will come back!

This hotel is the perfect size and is very nice. Very tropical plaza with large turtle pond. Very comfortable outdoor furniture in the plaza and very comfortable furniture inside. The lobby, lounge, and restaurant are very nice and updated.

The hotel was very nice and comfortable, great wifi connection, prompt service whenever needed and courteous staff. Great views of the beach, ocean and surrounding areas. Food options on the property were somewhat limited and very pricey (all prices are in euros) with each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) averaging $65 and up for two people ( a day's meal easily $200 a day if eating on property, gratuities of 16 included in all meals). Daily excursions customer service were very friendly however, one had to look for them as they were tucked in a corner of the hotel. Our room was upgraded to 1st floor walkout to the beach, however, what was not disclosed to us was that our upgraded room downgraded our bed to two doubles vice the king size we had reserved. Furthermore, one could hear everything thru sliding glass door where pool and beach attendees (and very small children) could be heard thru-out the early morning and late night....
