Historical Traveler Reviews Morritt's Tortuga Club & Resort East End
My husband and I went there for our Honeymoon and had such a great time. It was very relaxing and away from everyone. We could walk out our patio door to the beach and there was plenty of chairs to choose from along with plenty of beach. We felt like we were on our own little island. Also, make sure you check out the public beaches on the East side. Great place to eat lunch together. We were the only ones on the beach! We plan to go back!
Loved every moment
Went went for our honeymoon March 9-16 and stayed at Morritt's Tortuga and was in heaven. Our rooms were cleaned every day and the people was every nice. The beach there was also the best by our opinions, clean and the reef created a calm water to snorkel in. We were told by many to go to Rum Point, a nice beach but to many people and the beach at the resort was just as nice and we didn't have to drive to it! We also suggest to do the stingray city it was a once in a lifetime experience. We plan on returning in a couple of years and hope to stay on the east end.
Beautiful Quiet RCI Resort of Distinction
Just returned from 10 days of heaven in the Grand Caymans. Morritt's Tortuga Resort is well hidden on the east end of the island but well worth the 22 mile shuttle tour. Incredible beaches protected by an outer reef creates a wonderful safe area for snorkelers, windsurfers or children with white sand beaches and aqua clear waters. The units are bright and spacious and beautifully maintained to RCI International Resorts of Distinction Status (4Star). Lots of nightly entertainment, great dining and daily activities. Although there is a small gift shop and Morritt's is currently building a grocery store along with their new Morritt's Grand facility, I'd recommend making a stop for groceries at Hurleys IGA by the Airport on your way out. The Conmac family who operates the shuttle are more than willing to wait. The resort staff are extremely courteous and more than willing to help you out in any way. I highly recommend this facility over the traditional hotels on the 7 mile Beach strip if you want to avoid 7 miles of concrete and tripping over bodies...especially if you are looking for a quiet family or newlywed holiday.
The Perfect Vacation Spot
We just returned from a 2-week stay at Morritts Tortuga Beach Club -- and it was wonderful! This is the perfect place to really appreciate all Grand Cayman has to offer. Our condo was lovely, and the housekeeping service was outstanding. The grounds, beach area, and 4 pools were maintained as well as any we've seen. The majority of the staff was extremely attentive and very friendly. The planned activities were a lot of fun, and the hosts were excellent. Morritts is expanding into Morritts Grand with 1 1/2 phases to be completed yet. These condos are absolutely beautiful and perfectly situated right on the beach. The spill-over Grand pool right on the ocean is fantastic. We'd recommend Morritts to anyone wanting to visit Grand Cayman and have a really relaxing vacation.
I Feel Sorry For You IF You've Never Been There!
It is so beautiful there!! there is so much to do that you cannot do it all in a week I luv the new Grand beautiful ocean views! the crystal clear waters and pools keep you in the water the whole time your there!
Vacation in Paradise
We have vacationed at Morritt's Tortuga Club this past year, and we could not stop raving about it to everyone when we got home. Of all the vacations we have gone on, this was just the greatest of them all. We loved it so much, we bought a timeshare there and are counting the days till we can return. It was very quiet, clean, and everyone was so friendly. Most of all, the english language was spoken. I don't understand why people dislike this place. It is just magnificent. It truly is a piece of Paradise.
I couldn't agree with another reader who called this place "pitiful". Rooms were stark, pillows flat, old bed mattresses were uncomfortable. It's a money money money making deal. Look out for the sales pitch. They'll call from a "representative" who makes you feel "personalized" bec. you'll waste an hour trying to tell them you're not interested in buying a timeshare. You definitely need a car to go to outside restaurants and Rum Point.
Food at Morritts was very ordinary and tastless.
I loved the place next door -Cayman Reef Club and Rum Point area. Red Sail Sports up there.
Ocean Divers for diving was great. But I hear that the #1 dive place is Cayman Diving Lodge where they serve lunch after the dives
Cayman's Best Kept Secret
If you are looking to experience the island and not get constantly stuck in traffic along a crowded strip of hotels, shopping malls and fast food restaurants, then Morritt's Tortuga Club and The Grand on the East End are the place to go. The beach is beautiful and quiet. The water is clear, calm and full of sea life. There is a section for water sports with all the "toys" you could want. There is a dive shop and dive dock on site. You can take quiet walks in the evening without worrying about traffic. And the evening entertainment is fun and interactive. There is an ocean front bar with a two story outdoor deck and Andrew Bacon, your entertainment guru, will keep you laughing. Then, of course, there is my personal favorite...the Lammie parties. Lammie is one of the finest island musicians and Cayman very best kept secret. His dance parties get everyone up and dancing. The resort welcomes you like "one of the family" and once you experience this "little piece of paradise" you will count the days until your next visit.
We loved it!
we stayed at morritts tortuga club for 2 weeks Sept 1-15th 2001, The resort was great, the swim up bar that served us lunch, was great. Our room was very large, we had a 2 bedroom townhouse. The service was fine, the nightly activities they held were wonderful, from the comedy show to the fire act & all the dinner parties, overall we did not want to come home, we loved & the staff at morritts was
great, In fact we are going back for 2 more weeks
in Mar 2003.
This place is horrible
What a terrible mistake....this was the first impression I had of the Tortuga Resort and unfortunately this impression was only re-affirmed contiually throughout the week I spent there. I have never had such lousy service, coupled w/ the fact that the motto for the resort was "I can't do that." Sadly that was the staffs response to every inquiry regarding the stay.
The rooms were pitiful, plain and common. The food was outrageously priced and unimpressive. The complex itself is located on the east end of the island, and once your there you are captives. The fact that you can't easily get to other areas of the island would be okay if the property you were staying on is, at a minimum adequate, but its not the case w/ this property.
Pitiful....that's the best word I can use to describe the staff and the property. In fact, you are charged for the electricity you use while in the room; a fact that escaped me until checkout. I was given the bill and I tendered the money to the front desk employee. She looked at me w/ shock and utter confusion. The problem you ask? She did not have change and insisted that we provide the appropriate change for the charges. When I told her to make change, she responded in, what at that time had become their customary and very predicable response, "I can't do that", followed by the staff located at the desk actually laughing at my apparently obserd request. Naturally, this sent me into orbit and I proceeded to lambast the staff until they reluctantly complied w/ my request to make change. Apparently the wanted to frustrate me into giving the change, which they could not make, to them in the form of a tip.
In conclusion, here's my tip for you, stay away from this tourist trap. It isn't worth your time, money or ever your consideration.

Jalen's 1st trip as well as our 1st trip to the Caribbean. He did well on this long flight. He slept a lot both ways. He did NOT sleep well a couple of nights at the hotel. It was hard because we shared a room with him which he wasn't used too. We visited a turtle farm where he touched the turtle. Drove to Seven mile beach which is the most amazing …
Grand Cayman Island is the largest of the 3 Cayman Islands but is still small at only 22 x 8 miles, 60ft max above sea level and approx 40,000 inhabitants. The islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1503 (we saw a monument marking its 500th anniversary in 2003) but are now a British colony with the Queen as Head of State. Francis Drake landed here as well and slaves were introduced by the British ...
... swam up to about 2ft from me, had a breath or two, checked me out, then went back to his dinner. 'Twere marvelous! The bay is a marine National Park and there are some really big fish. A fair few Tarpon - up to about 5ft long, a massive Grouper - about 4ft long and lots of big Parrot Fish and Angel Fish -and squillions of little 'uns.
The town is very tidy, very expensive and caters for the cruise ship ...
... the same Australian couple from the Cayman Islands boat tour, and between the six of us, we ended up winning. As usual, the prize was lousy as we all won Celebrity pens and a lanyard, which seems to be solving Ted's ongoing problem of losing his room key card.
We ran into J.W. who invited us to dinner in the Silhouette dining room with him, Jerome, Keith and Paul. Even though I had initially planned to go to a "Family Feud" game show, I hid my disappointment and agreed to it. ...
... the front and a small town centre with little shops and cafes - very americanised in a positively quaint way (sounds like an oxymoron!). No one bothered me at all which was refreshing and the place was quite lively and seemed friendly. I'd like to come back here but imagine it's an expensive place to holiday...although my burger king wasn't ...
