Fodor's Expert Review Lacovia Condominiums

697 West Bay Rd., Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, KY1-1209, Cayman Islands

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

The carefully manicured courtyard of this handsome arcaded Mediterranean Revival property could easily be mistaken for a peaceful park. Large shade trees and thick, lush gardens overflowing with flowers bloom everywhere; you can feed the iguanas that stake out the frangipani and hibiscus amid the topiary. What's blissfully missing is the usual pressure of traffic, construction, and concrete walls so common in this area of Seven Mile Beach. The 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom condos themselves are nicely kept, their contemporary decor accented by classy tapestries and rugs; all units have a washer/dryer. The beach here is wide and soft, with more wonderful shade trees and thatched gazebos. Facilities include a pool, fitness room, and tennis and basketball courts. A shopping center, grocery store, restaurants, dive shops, and nightlife are a short walk away.
