Fodor's Expert Review Pirates Point Resort

Pirates Point, , Little Cayman, KY3-2501, Cayman Islands Fodor's Choice

Comfortable rooms and fine cuisine make this hideaway nestled between sea grape and casuarina pines on a sweep of sand one of Little Cayman's best properties. There are 11 bungalow-style rooms, some air-conditioned, others swept by crosswinds through louvers. Walls duplicate the soft colors of a Caribbean dawn; floors and furnishings are immaculate. In true Caribbean getaway tradition, TV is banished to the main cottage (where Wi-Fi is available). This delightful retreat was the creation of the late' effervescent owner Gladys Howard, whose down-home welcome belied her upscale meals. Gladys is irreplaceable, but her daughter Susan (along with the exemplary longtime staffers) has maintained the tradition of excellence and hospitality, hosting weekly champagne parties on the veranda of her adjacent home and playing dominoes after dinner. Weekly stays (preferred) represent huge savings, especially the dive packages, which include an open bar; guests who are not on dive packages just get wine with dinner.
