Well and update on last night as I said I would do, it was a lovely night having dinner with Colonel and Linda Bauer. It is interesting to known that even though people are far more educated and have experience such a different life to us ,when our life seem so insufficient to theirs, they really are just people like us with the same morals and the same values as us and there are many topics that can be discussed and enjoyed together. The evening was a ...

We continue chatting all afternoon lounging around until Geoff returns from work / golf when we head out for dinner at a great restaurant called Guy Harvey's in town, after we grab a couple of drinks at a bar then head back, quite a sensible and well behaved night.

Next a drive thru the Seven Mile drive to see some fancy homes, and then on to Rum Point, just another scenic point with pretty homes surrounding the beach and ocean and then we made our way to the Light House, I've been down to Peggy's Cove so I'm afraid my expectations were considerably higher for the lighthouse. It really was one of the smallest lighthouses I have ever seen. I have to admit the lighthouse which was now converted ...

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.
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
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.
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.
