We rented a 2 bedroom suite and another king suite room for less than 1 king room on 7 mile beach. Yes there are compromises, such as hotel needs updating, no sandy beach, limited food options and no entertainment, but a good value. They provide free shuttle service to most locations, except the airport. This shuttle stops running at 5...

From the broken blind to the view of a construction lot/dump to the junk food restaurant to the depressing bar to the non-existent room service/ in-room entertainment to the uncomfortable bed and cheap linens to the air-conditioning as loud as a jet engine (conveniently positioned at the bedroom door) to the pool bar that never opens to the rock beach...

We stayed for one week here in an Ocean View King Suite. The room was large, spacious and modern and definitely a bargain. The hotel has nice grounds, the pool was large enough to swim laps in. The beach is not great and we didn't spend much time there but enjoyed the hammocks at night looking at the stars. The...

The resort is just of the a golf course opposite side from the 7 mile beach. The hotel is fine and the rooms are good and modern. The suites have a good kitchen and washer/dryer as well. The pool is nice and normally not very crowded, however the beach is not sandy but if you walk out from the pier...

This is a cheap hotel by Cayman Island standards, don't expect much from it and you'll be fine (no view, no beach, igly swiming pool, tiny fitness...) Everything works, but nothig is great (which is fine considering the low price)

My history with this resort goes back some 12 years and I have stayed here many, many times - I have a lot of memories at this place. The Holiday Inn in Safe Haven is definitely the place to be if you want to escape it all while still remaining near to world famous seven mile beach, great restaurants, golfing,...

All of the above. Just a lil bit off the beaten path to get back to. Didnt love the bay view we had. But all in all this resort is comparable to the pricing... Nice pool area, and food is really good.

Nice facility a bit dated. Had to drive everywhere. Did have a snack and drink at the bar with a band. It was fun. Stayed in an upper front but the room have a pretty view of the water. It was very windy on the dock.

Thank you for your review David. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your trip to Grand Cayman. It sounds like you rented a car but we also have a complimentary area shuttle that takes guests to Seven Mile Beach, Camana Bay. Fosters Grocery Store and George Town. The shuttle runs every hour each day. We hope to welcome you back...

This hotel was a great experience. Very clean, nice views, awesome pool, and the staff are super helpful and laid back. The location is a bit out of the way, but the good thing is the shuttle departs often and goes all over the island.
