Just returned from a one week stay, and thoroughly enjoyed it! Beautiful views, and spacious 1 bedroom timeshare unit. Our daughter slept on the pull out sleeper sofa in the family room. Nice to have a kitchen---saved us money! We cooked our own breakfast every morning, and made dinner a few nights too. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating! Shuttle... More

Good news is the rooms are clean, big and well appointed. The night desk staff and servers in the restaurant are pleasant and friendly. The pool is very nice. On the negative side. The beach is awful, and the area is nondescript. The hotel has nothing around it so everything is a drive. The day front desk was unpleasant. It... More

We stayed 3 nights in November. The hotel is quiet and a great place if you want to rent a Jet Ski and go to Rum Point or Stingray City. Exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Greene the property General Manager. Also If you want to play golf the hotel is located right on the public golf course. Choose the... More

Nice hotel. Rooms are nice and well.kepy. location is decent. Located on the bay rather than the sea so the water is not as nice. But it could be nicer if they maintained a beach there. It appears there once was one but it is no kept clean. Some raking and a truckload of sand would bring a huge value... More

Stayed for a few days attending a training seminar. Was a last minute thing so choices were limited. That said, the hotel wasn't bad, it not laid out a little different from usual. The room was nice, the hotel's right by the beach, and there's a pool if you don't feel for salt water. The staff were friendly and accomodating,... More

If I could give a negative rating I would! This was my first time staying at the resort and it will be my LAST time! Being a local resident and wanting to have a staycation over the long weekend I thought this location would be grand. Boy was I ever wrong.

We stayed in a huge 1-BR and the experience was wonderful. We knew Cayman was expensive, but Damn! It's good thing we had a full kitchen to cook since we stayed indoors mostly and relaxed. We also had a washer/dryer. It was our home away from home. We did rent a car after staying a few days and doing so... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn while attending the CWA2016, and I must say that generally, this hotel is good, there are just some things though that could do a lot better for the hotel. 1.

Dear AAbhishay, Thank you for your comments. All your concerns about the restaurant were addressed to the Manager. However, Cayman Island is a pricey place to eat and our restaurant is one of the cheapest on island. In general at any other restaurant, you cannot get an entrée for less than US $25.
