Quote: For a quiet, relaxing week with sand, surf and sun, Grand Cayman is an ideal location to unwind. Island is small enough to explore by car and not feel rushed. Just enough sights to keep you busy without feeling as if you will miss something.

Studio was small, although it did have a full size refrigerator, stove, and microwave. Bathroom was inadequate in size with no counter space whatsoever. Room was straightened daily, except on the weekend. All rooms overlook beach or pool areas.

The beach was beautiful - one of the nicest on the island. It is easy to have a full week at the resort without leaving. There are activities during the day and night with theme dinners. Great snorkeling right off the beach under the dock.

Smuggler''s Cove

Restaurant

Ordinary looking from outside but nothing ordinary once you get through the front door. It has a beautiful atmosphere and an outdoor deck overlooking the harbor. The food was top drawer, with elegant service, a red snapper pasta special that was scrumptious, and a duckbreast appetizer that melted in the mouth. I will make sure I return to this restaurant when I get back to the island.

Excellent Carribean food at this romantic restaurant off the beaten path (about 30 minutes from George Town and 15 minutes from Moritt''s). Caesar salad was superb, and the Chicken piccatta was moist and tender. Seating on an outdoor deck over the water or in a screened-in porch both provide island atmosphere.

Attraction

If there is one activity that every visitor MUST partake in, it is snorkeling and a trip to Sting Ray sand bar. There are an endless number of snorkel tour operators on the island with varying prices from $20 - 50 per person for half-day trip (three hours). Almost all operators go to Coral Gardens, Barrier Reef, and Sting Ray sand bar. These three stops should not be missed. Barrier reef is an exquisite snorkeling site. At Sting Ray sand bar, water is three to four feet deep, and sting rays swarm all around while you feed them squid.All tours will cover these stops, but Captain Marvin's was a small trip (less than 20 people), and this is important. Many operators had 50+ people on their bo...Read More

Beautiful beach out of town. Worth the trip by car or ferry. Short drive from Morritt's Tortuga Club. Spend the day, lunch at beach bar, snorkel off shore.
