For sheer elegance in the Caymans, this resort is hard to top

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, an exclusive oceanfront hotel, caters to those who seek an upscale level of relaxation on Seven Mile Beach. The Resort stretches over 144 acres from the Caribbean Sea to the North Sound. The Ritz spared no expense in developing its reputation as the best property on the island, from its stellar beachfront location, to a Greg Norman-designed golf course or full-service Silver Rain Spa, to dinner at Blue, the signature restaurant from Eric Ripert of New York's Le Bernardin fame.

Highlights
  • High level of service
  • Set in the heart of Seven Mile Beach
  • Excellent food
Rooms

Guest rooms, club rooms, and suites, ranging from 480 square feet to 1858 square feet overlook the ocean, two pools, the golf course, waterways, or gardens from three buildings. Oceanfront or Garden View rooms feature one king or two queen beds, a twin sleep sofa, a private balcony or terrace, spacious marble bathrooms with separate shower and bathtub, high-speed Internet service (included in daily resort fee), fully stocked refreshment bar with refrigerator, and coffee maker. All rooms are non-smoking. Club rooms provide access to the Club Lounge. Suites offer additional bedrooms, a dining area, and additional amenities and services, depending on choice of suite.

Features

Saunter over to Seven Mile Beach for the day or swim in the two outdoor pools and soak in oceanfront Jacuzzi. Expect a comprehensive watersports program befitting the Ritz, with accessibility to all ocean toys, from jet skis to sail craft to scuba diving excursions.

 

The nine-hole Blue Tip golf course, exclusive to guests and Ritz resident owners, challenges players with eight holes on the water. Tennis instruction at the three clay and one grass tennis courts are designed by well-known tennis teacher Nick Bollettieri. A state-of-the art fitness center offers additional exercise opportunities.

 

At Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa, the skin science of La Prairie's Swiss Heritage merges with the sensual delights of the tropics to create one-of-a-kind treatments.

The world's most respected seafood chef, Eric Ripert, brings his passion for celebrating fish to The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman's seven distinct restaurants. Guests enjoy a culinary journey like no other from Ripert's seafood creations to the island's finest steaks to an opulent Sunday brunch.

Best on Cayman but Better elsewhere

If you're going to GCM this is the best resort there, although we have stayed at better resorts in Maui, Kauai, Cabo etc. all for similar or less money. Blue was fantastic, Seven was average. They did help us with lost luggage kits, but didn't want to use the Ritz shuttle to take us to the pharmacy. It was a mixed trip in that respect. Certain things were outstanding, other requests fell on deaf ears.

Good, but not as expected

A very nice hotel. But for the cost, you would expect that. Staff were responsive when asked, but you would first have to seek them out to engage. Have been to other hotels with a much more congenial atmosphere. Beachfront was way too crowded as they set up chaise lounges too packed in like sardines, though the canvas covers were a plus. Saw chaise lounges sit vacant for hours because someone or one of the attendants placed a towel or book to reserve (3 up front on beach were reserved without use until after 2pm with this system, which denied others use of the beachfront view.. hotel should address this issue ! We have stayed at other Ritz and in comparison this site fell short of expectations (thus a 4 vs 5). GC is a nice island for a getaway, but so are others in the Carribean region. Poolside bar restaurant staff were very friendly and great service (cudo;s there)..

Excellent but not worth the price

Ritz is by far the best property in the island in terms of luxury and comfort, however it is very expensive and you don't get your money's worth. If you are very rich and practically have an unlimited budget, then Ritz is the place for you. The food is great, rooms are very nice, staff is super polite. However, since I am not related to Trump, I measure experiences in terms of quality/price ratio. Ritz may be top quality but it probably has one the worst ratios. Why? Here are few reasons: - the shower in the room wasn’t working properly and they couldn’t fix it (the temperature was going up and down which made taking a shower very uncomfortable# - the jacuzzi at the SPA was broken for 2 consecutive days - there were trash bags waiting on the hall ways to be picked up producing bad smell Again, all of these would be minor problems not even worth mentioning if you are staying in another property, but if you are paying close to $800 for 2 people per night, you expect everything to be perfect. You also expect at least the breakfast to be included. Unfortunately, Ritz charges $40 per person for breakfast buffet #which is also not that impressive by the way#. Bottom line: If you are very price insensitive and would like to experience luxury #and of course say “I stayed at the Ritz” to your friends), then I highly recommend it. Otherwise, stay at one of the nearby properties for one third of the price.

I won't stay anywhere else!

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman and our second stay at the Ritz. Everything was perfect and I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Grand Cayman. Excellent service and several options for dining including poolside/beachside. Great location on 7 Mile Beach.

If you are diving, I would recommend InDepth Water Sports. With their expertise, Nat and Art provide a personalized dive experience that's second to none. If you don't have a car rental, they will pick you up at your hotel.
