My family of 4 (adults 42 & 45/kids 9 & 10) traveled to Grand Cayman for 9 nights over our Spring Break in March. Our last several spring break trips have been to Beaches Turks & Caicos or Cabo San Lucas amongst many others without the kids. I'll start with the property..... we really enjoyed it! The only negative thing I can say is that our room 109 was dated. Everything was clean and in working order, just dated. But we spent most of our time at the beach, pool or exploring the island. The 2 bed/ 2 bath unit was spacious and it was great to have a full size refrigerator with ice maker and washer/dryer in the room. We also stocked up at the local grocery store and had most breakfast in the room. The TV had plenty of channels for late night entertainment and watching the NCAA games. The first floor location of the room was perfect for going to the pool or beach or running back to grab a cocktail or use the bathroom. We were close enough to the beach to have an ocean view from this room. They changed our towels everyday and bedding every 3rd day. Margaritaville had live music in the lobby a couple of nights, so it was fun to grab a cocktail at the lobby bar and chill out. The beach in front of Sunset Cove is great! Like others have said, it wasn't crowded, you could always find chairs to put your stuff on. The water was warm and mostly clear. A few short steps and your on the main part of 7 mile Beach. We walked up to the Marriott a couple of times, once for dinner and once to cut through to Peppers across the street. It's a short easy walk and we walked back along the beach after dinner when the sun went down. Totally safe. We were glad we didn't stay at the crowded Marriott, the beach was packed with chairs and people in everyone of them. 7 mile is a pretty beach but it's not Grace Bay Turks & Caicos, I only say this because our goal is to find something comparable Grace Bay without going to the same place over and over. The pool was also great! We enjoyed afternoons in the pool and the swimup bar was a plus. Definatly, a big pool for Grand Cayman standards and the water was perfect temperature. The adults and kids both enjoyed the beach, pool and hottub immensely! We rented a car with AVIS and went to several snorkel spots just about everyday. Drove to dinner when it was too far to walk and visited the Turtle Farm. Picking and dropping the car at the airport was a breeze! I would recommend Sunset Cove to anyone. We really enjoyed our stay. I only give 4 stars because the room could use a little updating but otherwise their aren't any negatives. As I understand, the rooms are individually owned so it's the luck of the draw on whether or not you have more modern furnishings/finishes. But don't let that deter you. The space in the room, location and pool/beach area are well worth going!

We rented a condo through Cayman Condos. They were professional and easy to work with. Condo 213 was pool front, with a peek of the ocean from the balcony. It was the most well-equipped vacation rental we have stayed in.

The condos offer good sized condos with balconies. We stayed in #218, which overlooked the pool and you could also see the ocean. The pool is sectional but connected, so adds fun for the families (we were two couples). The bar in the pool is fun. We spent most of our time at the beach, which has it's own barrier and 'ocean' that has been cleared away of the coral rocks which are prevalent in that area. We went snorkeling - good but not great, as the coral has taken a beating with all the cruise ship traffic. There is an equipment shop in the strip mall next door. We walked to all of our evening restaurants, many selections up and down the main street. The grocery store is within walking distance, so we stocked up on breakfast and lunch supplies. Food and drink is expensive in the Caymans, no matter where you stay. We took advantage of the duty-free store before we arrived for our adult beverages. We also walked to George Town. Margaritaville shares the premises, so you have an opportunity to go to their bar, and we used them to call a taxi when we were departing. We used the bus to go to the top of SMB, worked just fine.

We've been to the same condo twice so far. If you love perfect weather and oddles of snorkeling right off the beach or diving book your trip! Restaurants and grocery all nearby. Nothing like it anywhere in the Caribbean! Do the bioluminescent tour!

I own a motel on the west coast of Florida and have been in the hospitality business since 1999. This was an awesome stay at Sunset Cove. Debbie in office totally awesome, very helpful, the bartenders from Scotland very helpful & friendly both at Sunset Cove & Margaritaville, Condo on the beach, close to seven mile beach outstanding , lots of restaurants in walking distance. .Only complaint cigarette & cigar smoke needs to be banned, not good for those of us with allergies . Will definitely book again.

Just returned from a week at Sunset Cove. Let me start by saying we arrived on Sunday and there is NOTHING open on Sundays except for restaurants and some gas stations for snacks, pop, etc. No grocery stores or liquor stores. We stayed in Unit 213 which was very clean and maintained and kitchen was well stocked. Our unit overlooked the pool and pool bar which was handy for some cocktails after check in on Sunday. We then walked down to coconut Joe's for dinner (fish tacos best ever) and some drinks. (Beware gratuity is automatically added to all checks). Went to Fosters IGA Monday for supplies. Prices were comparable to here at home. Walked to Kirks next day just to look around. Kirks has a better selection of meat (steaks, etc) but otherwise both grocery stores were just fine. I didn't convert my money to Cayman money and I wish I did. It was confusing sometimes (US dollar worth .80c.) and felt I got ripped off a couple of times by cab drivers. Discovered the public bus. $2 Cayman and they will take you wherever and there is always one handy. The Bbq grills at the resort are charcoal and are very handy. We grilled 3 nights and enjoyed the option of not having to go out. Walked down 7 mile beach a bit. Keep in mind that minimum of 3 cruise ships are in port at any given time. Beach is crowded and you can't enjoy the beauty of the beach. Sunset cove was the best place to stay hands down. It's private with own beach and no cruise people can come on the property. It shares the same property as margartaville but we never had any issues with not having lounge chairs. Always plenty at the pool and the beach. Would highly recommend and would stay here again.

We stayed at Sunset Cove unit # 105, VRBO.com # 3994790. The condo was clean, comfortable and spacious. We had another couple with us and we had plenty of space and our own bathrooms. Loved having coffee on the patio in the mornings and my wife had enough privacy to do some yoga. We enjoyed the beach and cove even when the rest of 7 mile beach had rough water we were able to swim. The swim up pool bar and hot tub was a great place to meet other travelers, share some laughs and a cool drink. One day we were laying on the uncrowded beach enjoying the peace and quiet even though there were 7 ships docked in Georgetown. If you are looking for a great place to enjoy all Grand Cayman has to offer that is centrally located try Sunset Cove VRBO.com # 3994790.

Vacationed for 8 days at Sunset Cove in February 2018 and stayed in unit 311. Gorgeous ocean view and sunsets over the water from that unit. The beach is well protected by rocks leaving a very calm lagoon type area in which to swim. Unit 311 could use some updates on the furnishings. Master bedroom king bed foam mattress was lumpy, and one of the outdoor dining chairs had a loose connection which made the sling sit directly on the bar beneath making it uncomfortable. Could use another chaise on the porch as there is only one and plenty or room for another. The floor in the unit was dirty as was the porch--on the day of check in. The master bathroom rug was stained and appeared dirty also. We had an issue with the air conditioner and called the number from the office and got no response for over 24 hours. Fortunately we were able to fix the issue ourselves. Loved the quietness of the resort, but feel that it won't remain that way once the Margaritaville resort construction is completed and the occupancy numbers go up significantly. Margaritaville guests have access to the beach and pool at Sunset Cove.

We are two women in our sixties and just returned from a weeks stay in condo 118. It was clean and recently updated. We had two bedrooms, one king and one queen and both rooms had very comfortable beds. The king room has an ensuite and the second bathroom is right outside the queen room. The entire condo is tiled with comfortable furnishings. The kitchen had all the necessary items for cooking, eating, drinking, including coffee maker, kettle. The freezer has an ice maker which was handy. There was a washer/dryer, with lots of soap supplied. This condo is on the main floor right beside the pool. We enjoyed eating our breakfast outside on the patio every morning. The patio is always shaded which is nice when you've had just too much sun. We were visited regularly by the onsite chickens (who are very polite). Being on the ground floor and a bit further back from the beach we couldn't see the ocean from the condo. If you want an ocean view you'd have to be closer to the water or on the second or third floor. It seemed that the majority of people were staying at Margaritaville. Margritaville and Sunset Cove share the facilities. There were always lots of chairs available on the beach and at the pool area. The condo had a safe that we used to keep our money and passports in. We used the bus service regularly which is cheap and convenient. We could walk to Kirks grocery store and to Georgetown. We rented a car for one day to explore the island a bit. It was easy to rent with Thrifty, who are located in the lobby at Margaritaville. We also booked an excursion with Red Sail to Rum Point and a swim with the stingrays. There is a Red Sail kiosk also located conveniently in the lobby at Margaritaville. Make sure to pop into the lovely shop in the hotel. Our vacation was the first week of February, which is supposed to be high season. There really weren't too many people around. The rental rates were certainly high season rates. (Over $4000 Cdn) We are Canadian so we pay double exchange, on US and then CI dollars. (Ouch!) Grand Cayman is not a cheap place to stay. We did eat in restaurants a few times but bought a few groceries at Kirks. When eating in restaurants they usually show CI and US amounts in your bill. Make sure to double check if the tip is already included on your bill. We had some problems with the tv in the condo and the last couple of nights could not figure out how to get it to turn back on. We had no maid service throughout the week, although people in the condo beside us had service twice in the week. We rented through Cayman villas which is offsite. Some people rented directly from Sunset Cove and there is an office onsite. There are two rows of condos going from the beach towards the road. The condos on the "inside" have better overall views. Some outer condos look out onto a parking lot or just a blue wall of the next property. If you can afford it, and if they're available, try to book the condos directly on the beach. They look lovely. The beach, the pool and the grounds are very nice. After walking a lot of Seven Mile beach we were happy with our choice to stay at Sunset Cove. There were lots of people on the beach at the Marriott, which seems to be referred to quite a bit in the forums. It seemed very congested.

We were at Sunset Cove for 10 days and just returned. Obviously part of the review is the specific condo you choose. We stayed in #115 which was ok. It is dated with no views at all but convenient to parking and all. The good: the grounds are clean and neat; the pool is fabulous an one of the largest on 7MB and new with a great swim up Tiki Bar/Restaurant. There were always chairs. The beach was huge due to a protected cove. This was great for swimming and snorkeling especially during high seas, The location is great with 7MB on one side and Georgetown on the other. No real issues per se. The prices at the local Tiki Bar/Restaurant were higher than most so we rarely drank or ate there. You do share everything with Margaritaville but we did not see that as a negative while we were there . We'd stay there again.
