Sunshine Suites Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just returned from Sunshine Suites on Grand Cayman. Great location, quiet, comfortable and friendly staff. The continental breakfast has a good selection and is a big help with the budget. It is well located and sitting on a green lawn in an adorondack chair is a great way to end a busy day.

Perfect place if you don't want to be around tons of people and don't mind a walk to the beach. A quaint place to be still and quiet.

This place will charge you a resort fee of $30CI a day. For the "free" continental breakfast and use of pool. Even if you don't use either of them. Property is also worn down and dated but the bed was comfortable. Cutting board in kitchenette needed to be seriously cleaned. For the light sleeper who wants to sleep in - ask for a room away from the continental breakfast building - the noise of setting up breakfast starts at 5:30 am and the hotel guests laughing and giggling start as early as 6:15.

Very nice hotel with great restaurant. Also close to best part of the beach.

Great service, friendly and courteous staff. The lawns are beautiful and well kept. Very tranquil and peaceful. Loved the hibiscus spa.

Friendly staff that are helpful- bed was uncomfortable. Sunshine Grill had the best food for your money and a good helping.

We have stayed at Sunshine Suites before and always find this a great place to meet our needs. The staff was very helpful and eager to please. The restraurant was yummy, the grounds are beautiful, the pool fun and private, and the bar just big enough. Being very close to the beach added the perfect touch. Thanks for making our vacation perfect

We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean. The kitchen in the room was small but perfectly equipped to cook three meals per day, saving tons of money to spend on other activities. The staff were very gracious. The hotel is very close to the beach across the street and on a bus line where you can travel all over the island with ease. My only complaint was the rooster who woke us every morning because our room was on the front side of the building. However, that can't be avoided in the island. There are roosters everywhere you walk. We will definitely be back to visit.

Comfortable beds, wonderful location, easy access for all excursions. The Sunshine Grill has the best food.

I had stayed here several years ago and was pleased. We decided to come back again on a family vacation. While the outside of the hotel is still in good condition, our room (327) had a strong smell of humidity. It did not help on our last morning we saw a roach running around the walls (it was mentioned at check out). They now charge a $30.00 resort fee per night which was OK since you are allowed to use the facilities of the Westin across the street. Transportation to the Westin was provided quickly when requested. I would suggest to the hotel they consider removing the carpet and just tiling the whole rooms. The complimentary breakfast is no longer provided at the Sunshine Grill, but at a facility built by the parking lot called the Sunshine Cafe. The offerings for the free breakfast were just sufficient enough. Do not expect any hot food items such as eggs, beacon, etc., just some bananas, toast, "home made" looking yogurt, juice, milk, coffee, and cereal. Hotel gets good reviews, but really fell short of our expectations this time.

We have a timeshare on the East End and often we arrive a day before it is ready for us, When that happens, Sunshine Suites is our Go To place of choice. Although a dated property, the rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is outstanding. The location is good with walking access to 7 Mile Beach but you must cross the main road to reach it. The small on-site bar / restaurant located by the pool has a beach feel and serves cold beer as well as outstanding meals including to die for fish tacos! Everyone also gets a small ice cream when finished.

We stayed for 7 night at the Holiday Inn Grand Caymanian. We needed 1 extra night before we flew home so we stayed at the Sunshine Suites. The room was clean except for the tile floor. I felt the floor was really dirty. The bed was clean, the bathroom was clean and the small kitchen was nice with a full size fridge. It was across the street from 7 mile beach which is within walking distance if you do not rent a car. They have beach chairs to use for the beach. The restaurant The Sunshine Grill was very good and wonderful waitresses. They have a continental breakfast that had everything we needed from oatmeal, cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, muffins, tea, milk, coffee and donuts.

we enjoyed our Time at the Sunshine suite but there isn't much to do in the evening.

Not on the beach but across the street.. Clean room and very useful kitchenette

The hotel is not right on the beach, but it is centrally located and has very easy access to the beach. The staff is very friendly, the restaurant is excellent and very famous among both the local residents and the vacationers.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for three days, and thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Sunshine Suites is much more affordable in comparison to many other neighboring hotels. The reduced price is likely due to the fact that you have to cross the road in order to get to the beach, but that's not a big deal at all. The Sunshine Grill, which is located on the hotel's property, is also a fantastic place to eat when you're staying here! I highly recommend this place.

Good proximity to conference that I attended with good amenities and clean rooms.

We stayed at Sunshine Suites in Grand Cayman. It was a great deal compared to other Seven Mile Beach area hotels. You just have to cross a "highway" to get over to the beach. It was clean and well maintained. The onsite restaurant has great food. We met people who stay there year after year because it is affordable. We would return.

This hotel is a block off the beach across the busy main road. It has a few shops, a bar and restaurant nearby as well. Place is clean with well manicured lawns. Rooms, my king bed suite, was comfortable and basic. The front desk is friendly but not ready to yield to or accept any complaints. Free breakfast is very very basic. The feeling I got from having breakfast was that it was a huge favor they were doing begrudgingly. The setting is what one might expect at a kids summer camp. It would be nice to have a proper buffet rather that food casually placed around. Make it inviting and proper. Place is OK and nothing to get excited about. It serves the basic purpose of being close to the beach and not paying the relative higher beach property prices.

We booked this hotel three days before and it was the best thing we did! The room and hotel grounds were spotless. The staff went out of their way to help us in whatever we needed. We will definitely return :)
