Grand Cayman Beach Suites

West Bay Rd., Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, KY1-1110, Cayman Islands

The former Hyatt all-suites section, now locally run, offers a terrific beachfront location and trendy eateries. The resort lacks landscaping, so the lackluster setting is one of concrete and elevators. Nevertheless, the ocean-view suites are vividly hued and plush, if a tad tired despite recent renovations. The higher the room, the smaller the balcony, but your view becomes increasingly stunning. The configuration is oddly angular and the marble-clad decor a bit formal and fussy, with columns and pilasters, but you'll find the latest gadgetry (Wi-Fi, iPod docking station, 37-inch flat-screen TV/DVD, kitchenette). Nice touches include jetted tubs and canopied beach chairs; the facilities impress, led by a Red Sail Sports outpost and stylish Hemingways restaurant and SIDEbar lounge (wildly popular Fridays and Sundays). Guests also receive preferred tee times and greens fees at the Britannia Golf Club.
