We stayed in unit 33 from Oct 1 to 7, 2017. Amazing location, nice selection of restaurants with-in walking distance with various price points, food options, sit down or take out, etc.. Loved how the beach is steps away, plus all units have a small patio with a BBQ facing the beach where we enjoyed our morning coffees or a night cap. We didn’t bring any snorkeling gear but was not an issue as there is also a dive shop across the street. The unit is very well kept and well equipped, with laundry, full kitchen, TV in both living room and bedroom… everything we could think of was in the unit. Great resort, can’t wait to stay again :D
We stayed in unit #33 and the entire experience is more than 5 stars! My only difficulty in writing this review is that it could result in challenges to reserve one of Marc's units at Cayman Reef Resort Unit. We have been to the island for the last 10 years staying at the nicest hotel as well as average hotels/condos. Before booking, we performed an enormous amount of due diligence re this owner/condo. The following is all proven/true. Rental process was easy and clear. Dealing with Marc before and during was easy, helpful and clear (ie, process, emails, condo manual/instructions, check in call, etc). The condo is EXACTLY as advertised and shown in the pictures. It is steps from the beach and has an amazing ocean view from the screened in patio. The condo was immaculately OCD clean when we arrived. It has been remodeled. It has exactly what is shown in photos/listed: flat screen TVs, tempurpedic mattress, w/d, beach towels, beach umbrellas, tons of useful kitchen appliances/utensils, cleaning supplies, detergent, sunscreen, aloe, bug repellent, and too many more to reiterate. The door has a code and also keys. Upon arrival there was fresh fruit, juice and water. It is in a great and convenient section of SMB. In summary, we are going back in a few weeks. We were that confident initially that we booked 2 (different units) for March and May. We are meticulous researchers, reviewers and travelers. The results of our review/due diligence were exceeded when we visited in person. We were not asked (yet) but clearly have no problem recommending Marc to anyone looking to rent. Extraordinary customer service is not easy these days. Marc represents that. I do not know how often, if at all, you write/read this many positive reviews but again please know Marc made the experience so exceptional that it was a pleasure writing this.
If you are looking for a place right in the middle of everything - this is it. The condo is beautifully furnished and just steps away from the beach. You can relax in a beach chair in the sand or by the pool. Easy walking to great restaurants and Camara Bay (new shopping area). Easy access to any activities you might want to do - Stingray City, Bioluminescence tours, Snorkeling, Turtle Farm, etc. The great thing about this location is that it really is right off the main road and taxi's & the public bus are not only easily accessible / found, but also easy to use. Can't say enough about the location and the condo itself. Very comfortable, roomy and has everything you need.
My husband and I came for 10 days to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We had never been to Grand Cayman before so we did not know what to expect. It was fantastic! From the beginning all through to the end, dealing with Marc was very easy. From the moment we walked into the unit, we were thrilled! The unit is better in person than the website depicted. Super clean and comfortable with everything you need to enjoy yourself and the beach. And we found from taking to other vacationing guests that Marc's units are the best in the complex. Also, we walked the entire length o seven mile beach and the beach in front of the complex is the best. The entry into the ocean is easy with a nice sandy bottom. The complex itself is super quiet at night and there are plenty of places to eat/drink within walking distance.
My husband and I had never been to Grand Cayman, so we had to rely on our research and luck. Well, we were very lucky in our VBRO rental with Marc. The condo is exactly as presented through photos -- even nicer. The condo grounds were so gorgeous; we loved the green space and many palm trees! What a sight for winter-sore eyes. Marc was very attentive; he called the day we arrived to make sure everything was okay. One day we had a Wi-Fi issue. I barely hit send on my email to him, and the condo phone was ringing; he walked us through the problem in minutes. Marc's efficiency, rental process and readiness to help made it easy for us to enjoy the incredible setting provided by the condo, the complex and Grand Cayman itself.
