Great property! Family oriented great deal w/breakfast

Really great property. We chose this because it was in walking distance to Kaaboo and we could access the beach across the street through the Westin property. You are allowed to use the Westin facilities which is a plus; the Westin is gorgeous. Parking on site. Pool is small but we didn't go in it, we're in Cayman for snorkeling! Our room was on the ground floor near the restaurant. Rooms higher up I think you need to use a staircase, I didn't see an elevator so be sure to check that out before you book if you care about that. There's a concierge desk with some snacks for sale and a business office with computer. Wifi on property. Room was comfortable, bed very comfortable, great kitchen, shower was slightly wonky as far as temperature getting scalding hot but we got it managed somehow. I see other reviewers complaining about the shower temp also so, management that's an easy fix get on it ;-) Suite is nice with second tv in living room and couch and table with chairs. Everything clean. Breakfast was filling with good choices. Saw lots of Kaaboo staff staying there. Saw lots of families with kids lounging on the lawn, reading, playing games, just relaxing and enjoying each other's company, just like the good old days. Really good stay.

More than adequate hotel for non-beach prices but with access to the beach

Similar in style and decor to a Marriott Courtyard, the Sunshine Suites guests have privileges over at the Marriott Grand Cayman Seven Mile without the same price or view or being on the beach. It's more than adequate for business.

Not a resort

Calling this hotel a resort is a stretch. Yes, it has a pool but that’s about it. Anywhere else these rooms would be $50-75. Think about it as that kind of quality. 1. Restaurant is not located ‘near’ the pool it’s on the small pool deck with tables 2 feet from the very small pool. This makes for a terrible pool experience. 2. The restaurant is really overpriced for the quality of food. We chose to sit outside which was a mistake since we had to fight the flies for our food. 3. The rooms all have exterior doors, in other words. DO NOT STAY HERE AS A SOLO FEMALE TRAVELER. There is 0 security. 3. If you were hoping for a pretty island view from your hotel room it won’t happen here. 4. For some reason the bed frame was 6in longer than the bed and crooked. Many shin bruises resulted. 5. All the furnishings need a refresher. Everything is tired and old. 6. The shower in our room was the worst, ever. The temperature had a mind of its own alternating between cold and searing hot constantly. 7. Towels were not replaced consistently even though we requested it. Took 3 days to get a new washcloth. 8. The ‘continental’ breakfast is a joke. Same selection everyday and quality is well below expectations. 9. Not enough tables in the breakfast room, so you have to either grab and go or stand around waiting. 10. Pool towels go quick. Grab one in the morning if you’re even thinking about using the pool because there won’t be any by noon. And they don’t restock. 11. Staff seems disinterested and not quite rude but not friendly either. Although this is what we experienced on most of Grand Cayman so it may be cultural. PROS 1. Use of the beautiful facilities at the Westin.

Mostly great

Just got back from 7 nights at Sunshine Suites and the experience was overall very good. It's a lovely property with immaculate grounds and exteriors. Nice pool and restaurant on the property. When we weren't out and about, we would alternate between spending time at the beach (a short walk away with "Beach Ambassadors" who will help you find chairs and an umbrella to lounge under. Very nice!) and staying by the SS pool. Here's the rub. We paid extra to have a "King Suite" and there were a few issues. 1. When we walked into the room, it was noticeably too warm. The AC was set to 68, but in reality it was more like 78. I set the temp down to 66, but it made no difference. I should have said something right away, but finally after a couple of days I did, and they sent someone to fix it. After that it was fine. But housekeeping should have noticed this before we arrived and it could have been corrected without us having to complain about it. 2. The "suite" was basically 2 areas. The bedroom with a king bed, and a living area. The living area was large enough for a full size sofa, but instead had a small loveseat, a small round table and 2 side chairs. Why not furnish with a normal, comfortable sofa? It wasn't very comfortable and got pretty old after a few days. 3. The mattress on our king bed had far exceeded its' many years of service. Even before we laid on it, the depressions on either side were very noticeable. And once we got in, it was horrible. One side was worse than the other, and my wife and I had to take turns sleeping on the "bad" side. Even though the "good side wasn't much better! I mentioned this to the front desk at the time I said something about the AC, and she said they would look into it. Nothing was done. When we checked out, I was going to say something once again about the mattress, but we were never asked how we enjoyed our stay, or if everything was satisfactory. So I will say it here, and unfortunately, we probably won't be back. Too bad how trying to squeeze too much life out of a mattress can affect repeat business.

Pretty good alternative!!

I was very pleased with this option, particularly given that we would be doing several excursions - thus not at the hotel as much. Highs: - easy walk to beach - great access to public buses - Sunshine Grill has good food - hearty and we enjoyed the meals and the service - room was a good size. Absolutely no complaints Lows: - complementary breakfast was sub-par - the cleaning crew didn’t come consistently at the same time and even when we left towels on the floor they didn’t replace towels. HOWEVER, when we called for replacements they were very prompt.
