We spent a week on seven mile beach and a week here at rum point. I have to say I prefer this spot. Both areas had there good points. The snorkelling was a bit better near seven mile(west Bay Area, we were right beside cemetery reef) but it was outrageously expensive to eat any where and the condos cost a...

Thank you for your wonderful review of The Retreat. Rum Point is one of the highest rated snorkeling places in Grand Cayman! Most of our guests have reported seeing sea turtles, eels, stingrays, barracuda, and an amazingly long list of tropical fish. Again, thank you for your excellent review!

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman so my wife and I decided to stay in unit #15 at the Retreat. We love this side of the island as it's much less crowded and laid back. Our condo was excellent, very clean, spacious, nice screened in patio with great view. Being off season there were very few people staying...

We just returned from a week long stay at the Retreat at Rum Point. 1) We selected this condo resort for it's proximity to Rum Point snorkeling for the different swimming skill levels of our children. The proximal location to the snorkeling did not disappoint. 2) The second reason for selecting this resort was its proximity to restaurants, so that...

Will you kindly note the unit you stayed in? These units are all independently owned and readers like to know which ones have the best views, are ground floor, etc. It sounds like your unit wasn't one of these. Thank you for noting our prime snorkeling location and other positive things you mentioned. As for the aging game room, the...

We stayed in Unit #23 for 11 nights. We had ocean views from both bedrooms, living room and kitchen. This unit had everything we needed, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and there were even snorkel masks and fins. It was spacious and I loved the luxury linens on the beds. There was even a bbq that we enjoyed using. The ocean...

We have stayed there twice and in the area on two other occasions. We like it because it is quiet, with great snorkeling and paddle boarding, and has a few great little restaurants. However, they are in the process of building another building between the swimming pool and the water and there is a lot of mess and noise. It...

Location seemed a little remote at first until it became clear Rum Point is the area everybody will want to visit because of all the things to do. This area is not for the shop til you drop crowd but for those who vacation to get away from the crowds. We will definitely go and stay at this location again.

LOVE this place! It's perfect. We have had a fantastic experience while here and being in the off season, we have it to ourselves practically. I watch the sunrise each morning, and watch the sunset each night, right from my rooftop. It's amazing. Great beach bar next door, fun restaurants nearby, yet easy drive down to the busy part of...
