Fodor's Expert Review Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort

389 West Bay Rd., Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, KY1-1202, Cayman Islands Fodor's Choice

The soaring, stylish marble lobby (with exquisite art glass, spectacular blown-up underwater photos, marine paraphernalia, and fun elements such as red British-style telephone boxes and apothecary cart dispensing "holistic handcrafted infusions") sets the tone for this bustling beachfront property, which received a $16-million renovation in 2015. Large adjoining rooms are ideal for families; all have tiny balconies, hardwood furniture, pullout sofas, and smallish bathrooms. The beach, pool, beach bar, sunglass concierge, sunburn relief stations, and Red Sail dive center with water toys fill every nautical need. Add a serene spa, lovely lush tropical courtyard and turtle lagoon, clever man-made reef, and solid restaurants utilizing local ingredients as much as possible, and you never need leave the property (despite the on-site car rental agency). When you do, it's a short walk to more restaurants and stores.
