We have been coming to the Cayman Islands for many, many years. My husband's first trip here was 25 years ago and my first trip to GC maybe 20 years ago. Grand Cayman has changed so much over that time!!! We come here year after year because: 1) the great beach, 2) great weather - much more reliable than Florida, 3) GC is a relatively safe place to visit, 4) the people here are friendly. With respect to safety, we have wandered this island by car and by foot and we have never felt unsafe. Certainly there is crime here, but you will never feel trapped in you resort. We eat at "local" restaurants all the time.
Note: there are no casinos in GC and it has a very quiet night life. We like it that way.
We have stayed at Casa Caribe for maybe the past 13 years. It is not as fancy at some of the newer condo complexes that have sprung up on 7 Mile Beach, but it is in my opinion, on one of the best parts of the beach. Here the beach is wide, deep and sandy. In other words, there is more each square footage per person than, say, the Ritz, where it seems that there are wall to wall bodies - especially on prime vacation weeks.
The Casa Caribe is also right across the street from the Fosters Food Fair (grocery) making shopping easy when you don't rent a car. Note: Fosters is closed on Sundays, so better stock up before then. It is also close to the Ritz and the Beach Suites (aka Hyatt pre-hurricane) which makes arranging for water activities easy (banana boats, wave runners, kayaks, diving etc...).
The units are individually owned and therefore each uniquely furnished. There is housekeeping service every day except for Sunday. We stay in a 3
bedroom facing the beach. It clean and neat. You can easily sleep 6 people, making ideal for more than one family. We usually prefer to make our own breakfasts and lunches so we don't have to leave the beach for long.
We love it here!
