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.

Pricey Paradise

The hotel is lovely and the staff are great. However, Camanadians are just real friendly people in general, so I cant give the Ritz credit for that. The bad: Drinks and food were overpriced and not that great, it was crowded, everything was very expensive, beds not that comfortable, not enough outlets in the room for today's modern family. The good: as I mentioned, the staff were incredibly kind and accommodating, rooms were very clean, best view from the Ocean side rooms, immaculate grounds.

Go to the Eats Cafe for quick meals. The food is great and you'll pay a fraction of the hotels price.

Escape from Reality

Fantastic stay for an extended weekend. Wish we had more time to enjoy the restaurant Blu, but it was closed our last night. Here is all you need to know about the Ritz... they go out of there way to make sure you are taken care of. We had made reservations for a Sunday Champagne Brunch, unfortunately the air conditioning had an issue in part of the restaurant. We had heard about it, so we canceled our reservation without really even know what was wrong. As a way of making it up to us, that we were not able to experience their fantastic brunch, we were served a room service dinner for two with a sampling of some of the brunch entrees, anything from sushi to prime rib, as a way of showing us what they have to offer, and apologizing for the inconvenience of having to change our brunch plans. Great service

The pool bar is a bit pricy, but if you have an Ocean view room you have great access to your rooms from the pool deck. Just up the street in either direction is a liquor store, and a great sushi restaurant. You can stock up on beverages, and nice take-out and enjoy it from time to time out of your room on the balcony, or a simple walk from your room to a pool lounge chair with a beverage that is practically free compared to the pool bar.

Excellent babymoon getaway

If you are looking to get catered to and not be in an all-inclusive, the Ritz Grand Cayman is the place to be. Since I was not able to consume alcohol and my eating habits have changed since being pregnant, it didn't make sense to stay in an all-inclusive for us. Their beach chairs are amazing - you can literally nap for hours on them because each is individually shaded. The staff was always very friendly and they made our trip extra special by giving us a handwritten note with a box of chocolates as a good luck momento for our babymoon. It was a very nice touch. My only complaint and I told the hotel in my comment card was that our hallway right outside our room smelled not so great - kind of like a porta potty with potpourri masking the smell. Also, my one other thing was that the towels that they offer you on the beach seem to be softer than the ones they offer in the room, which for a 5-star hotel and a Ritz Carlton I simply expected better in that regards. But besides that, our room was great. Definitely get the pool-side/beach side of the hotel and not the garden side when booking. Otherwise, you have a very long walk daily to get to the big pool and beach area.

You can walk to great breakfast place called Sunshine Grill across the street at Sunshine Resort - AMAZING pancakes for breakfast, great burgers/mahi mahi tacos for lunch/dinner. Grocery store is nearby so you can grab snacks. The grocery store is also right next to a great steak house - Copper Falls.

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)..
