Locale Grand Cayman

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Recently stayed at this hotel and must say that the overall feeling of the hotel is nice with some pretty good ambience but really didn't meet our expectations for a Cayman hotel. It is also a pretty far trek to the beach and on one occasion an owner in the adjacent condo complained to us that we sat too close to "their" property. Not sure what that meant but we moved so as not to cause any trouble. The rooms were nice and well appointed and the staff were friendly as well. One exception was a guy who worked at Bonfire and we think his name is Kamya or something similar. He was very rude to my wife and basically ignored our requests. Cayman is a nice but expensive place to visit but this hotel doesn't really have the value.

Centrally located to walk to other restaurants/bars and shopping - new build and rooms are well appointed - steps from 7 mile beach - Next door to Cayman Reef Resort opposite West Shore Plaza and the Marriott is right next door also

Locale is an amazing hotel. Had a little staycation to celebrate my birthday. The room...beyond my expectations! It was modern, and huge yet it still felt like home. My friend and I were ready to move in and never leave!! The complimentary breakfast...AMAZING! The food in general was amazing loved it all....still cannot get over the pasta straws! Really ecofriendly. The staff was so friendly and welcoming from the front desk, to those in the kitchen to the cleaners. Received birthday wishes all morning from the staff, so nice of them really made my birthday and staycation the best which I will always remember and cherish. I've already started to spread rave reviews to family and friends telling them they need to stay at Locale.....I know I will be returning as it quickly became one of my favorites on Island.

As a local I've stayed at many hotels on island, but, Locale is in a perfect location!!! Near restaurants and shopping. Their bedroom, bathroom are contemporary and very spacious. The staff is friendly, Tyler ensures everyone has a pleasant stay. Thanks Locale staff!!!

Great Stay at Locale. The manager, Tyler and Supervisor, Evelyn were attentive, courteous and ensured a comfortable stay. I was in the King Loft which was very clean, modern and had everything you would need. They have complimentary breakfast and has a nice selections to choose from. It is walkable to Camana Bay, and very close access to airport and most tourist attractions. It is on the SMB stretch and the beach is just few minutes walk through public access beach areas. The only drawback I noted was that they do not have their own private beach and if you need a chair and umbrella, you will have to rent for $12 at the Royal Palms Beach Resort. Unless you take your own stuff. I would still give it 5 star for the exceptional service and recommend it to anyone coming to Grand Cayman.

Loved my stay!! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food was great for breakfast and the Bonfire restaurant has great food too. Has a small bar but carried a good selection of drinks. A close walk to Seven Mile beach and other restaurants.

I was immediately drawn to Locale through the photos of the rooms. The furniture and layout were modern, clean, and how I would personally love my own room to be designed. We were delighted at how spacious the rooms were. Since this hotel opened in March, we were excited to be one of the first couples staying there! Usually included breakfasts consists of dry cereal and bagels, but Locale had a whole menu of delicious options - such a great value! The beach is a 2 minute walk through a path right next to the hotel and although we had a rental car, we were pleased that everything was a 1 - 4 minute drive! Tyler, the Hotel Manager, went out of her way to find us by the pool to introduce herself. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly - I can't think of anyone who didn't greet us with a smile when we walked by. We really felt like family there. They were still working on the hotel, like painting the hand rails and working on their lofts, but that didn't bother us at all. The rooms were quiet and the night's sleep was perfect. Overall, if you're looking to visit Grand Cayman, I would highly recommend staying in the SMB area - and definitely check out Locale. Our friends stayed in the East End and missed their 8:30 am tour due to 1.5 hours of morning traffic. Many tours will probably leave from SMB and have complimentary transportation from this area. A big thanks to Tyler and her team for an amazing experience at Locale!

From the moment we arrived at Locale the staff were extremely friendly, courteous & accommodating. Knowing this was a recent opening we were worried that we'd be transferred to another property and not be able to just check-in and relax immediately. This was not the case. Within moments we were checked in and on our way to enjoying the clear blue waters & white sand of 7 mile beach! Some reviewers complained that the property was not directly on the beach. We were aware of this during our booking & actually chose this property due to it's close proximity to most west end attractions and cost savings because it was not a beach property. Next to the hotel is a beach path & within 3 minutes our flip flops were off and we were on the beach! You can easily rent beach chairs & umbrellas from Royal Palms at the public beach if needed. The hotel itself is extremely clean & even though there was ongoing construction it was never a disturbance. We were actually the first guests to enjoy the luxurious and spacious king bed lofts, modern with high ceilings, a perfect room for couples or a family. Breakfast every morning at Bonfire was an incredible value. The set options are more than enough to fill you up until a late lunch on the beach & saved us a lot of time & money every morning to focus on our exploring & relaxing. We had lunch there twice, a jerk pizza and a pasta, both extremely yummy. The hotel is also a very close walk to restaurants, shops & Camama Bay! We wish we never left!

We arrived the 2nd day Locale opened. It is a smaller boutique hotel; it is tastefully designed & is a 4 min walk to 7 mile beach. It is also walkable to bars, restaurants & shops. Excellent food, helpful & friendly staff & a special thanks to Tyler-manager of Locale-for her kind hospitality & for going above and beyond to ensure we had a lovely holiday. Looking forward to our next visit!

The facility is very modern and clean, staff is friendly, food is great with a generous breakfast, nice pool, steps to the beach. I would return and recommend to anyone. Lovely! So happy I took a chance and booked the Locale.
