Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites Seven Mile Beach
Good price, good location, clean and efficient
Good place to stay if you want a nice no-frills clean hotel room. We weren't planning on spending much time in the room so we didn't need any extras. We had a kitchen suite but didn't end up using it. There was no bathtub just a standup shower. The breakfast was fine mostly cereal, bagels and such, juice and coffee, and fresh fruit. The location was good, just down the street from Chicken Chicken and shopping, and close to the Butterfly farm. There was no beach front with the hotel though but you go to the Caymans to dive and snorkel, not sunbathe. I would defiantly stay there again.
Ideal for Families
Studio suites are relatively large, consisting of a living area (kitchen/living room) and a bedroom. The kitchen comes equipped with a fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, & sink for those who want to dine-in. Hotel also offers Deluxe Studio, 1 Bedroom, and 2 Bedroom suites but as I've never used them, I will not comment on them. All in all, the room was kept clean and comfortable.
Staff is very friendly. As I was there on business, the hotel had a taxi in front of the hotel for me each morning so I didn't have to wait. The cleaning lady went out of her way to give me direction to a store to buy a toothbrush by pointing it out from the window of a vacate room.
The only con against this hotel that I can think of is that it isn't located alongside a beach. There is a short walkway behind the hotel leading to a beach but it can be very narrow if a hurricane has come by and washed away the sand. To make up for the lack of a beach, the hotel does have a swimming pool and sun deck on the premises.
All in all, I found my stay at Comfort Suites (Grand Cayman) to be a comforting one. As long as you don't go here with the expectation of a posh 5-star hotel, you won't be disappointed. Based on the price and the layout of the rooms, the Comfort Suites is ideal for families.
We stayed for 10 nights in the beginning of January. You can't ask for a better value for GCI! A suite with a kitchenette so has that advantage like a condo, but the room was cleaned daily and had on site food, etc that you get with a hotel. No beach view from the room, but that is the ONLY thing you are missing. The pool is great and the fact that they serve drinks and food from the bar by the pool was something we took advantage of daily. About a 20 second walk to the beach. Just one row of condos between the beach and your pool. We've been to Cayman three times now and stayed in a condo the two times prior to this. For the price, we will continue to return here for our future visits and would recommend it to everyone. Also, the staff at the hotel and at the poolside bar/restaurant, Stingers, were fantastic and friendly.
I Recommend This Place
Stayed at the Comfort Suites for a week and loved it. A few things have changed from previous reviews though. The beach has come back since it was washed away a few years ago. The beach is down a 150 foot or so walkway and is the nicest cleanest beach I have ever been on. We had several strolls down the beach to the Royal Palms beach bar to watch the sunset (just head north). The hotel bar had excellent food that was way better than I expected. Coconut Joe's is directly across the street and is a great restaurant bar with again excellent food. Down the street and around the corner behind the Texaco is a phenomenal restaurant Cimboco that has the very best gourmet pizza I have ever had. On dining... I found the two times I had beef dishes, the beef on the island tastes a little different. Would stick with lots of seafood, jerk chicken, and Coconut Joe's excellent bbq pork ribs. With such a great location for this hotel, we probably should not have rented a car. Andy's car rental is across the street so I would take a cab from the airport and decide on car rental after your there. Don Fosters dive shop (one of the largest operators on island) is onsite. We opted to go with a great smaller operator Divers Down that picked us up every day and dropped us off making it extremely convenient. OH yeah one other tip; the drinks on island are extremely expensive. If you are a drinker, get a bottle at the duty free in the airport to bring down with you! Who says all you can make in the Suites kithenettes has to be food. OK OK... so this review has been more about the trip than the hotel. To sum it up, Comfort Suites is an excellent value, is one of the newest hotels on island, has a great staff, is extremely clean, has a great location, nice pool, good food, fun luau two nights a week, on and on... I would definitely recommend it!
We stayed at the Comfort Suites 23 March - 1 April. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The location was great - short walk to Georgetown and many good eating spots. Rented a car from across the street - Andy's. Highly recommend Soto's snorkling trip to Stingray City.
Comfort Suites- January 2004
Stayed at the Comfort Suites for 5 great nights. We had our daughter with us plus another couple went with us. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely appointed. The staff was outstanding. Carol at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful in directing us to restaurants, dive sites, tour suggestions, and more. The hotel has a nice pool area with a bar that serves food. Not the best drinks, but the staff was very friendly and the food better than expected. A short walk gets you to a great beach area. Good swimming, snorkeling and sunning right there. There is a dive shop near the pool but I got the impression they specialized more in SCUBA than snorkeling. My daughter did rent snorkeling equipment from them and I did pick up a few odds and ends there. There is a great dive shop just down the street towards town that was much larger and helpful when our friends decided to buy their own gear. The other shops at this little strip mall are also very nice and better than than most of the typical shops in George Town. You don't get the garden lobby like the Marriott next door, but you do get a very nice, clean and well positioned hotel for considerably less money. The friends who went with us and we all agreed that we would certainly stay at the Comfort Suites again.
Accomodations very good
We just returned from the Cayman Islands- stayed at Comfort Suites in a 2 bedroom unit. Very clean-staff very helpful- The pool and bar/restaurant satisfactory. Do NOT stay here if you envision lying on the beach or walking up and down along the shoreline directly from your hotel- beach is very very tiny and it is impossible to walk further up due to obstructions from other hotels. Also, beware of sea urchins in water- We thought a car was essential, and spent our time at one of several public beaches a few miles up the road that were fabulous. The hotel provides beach towels, which was helpful. The continental breakfast was adequate and helped in the cost department, as meals in GC are very expensive. Overall, a great trip. A good moderately priced (for GC) hotel.
A nice Vacation spot
The suite was nice. The breakfast was all carbs and some watermelon. The orange Juice should of been called Tang. The maid service was excellent.The pool was always sparkling clean. The beach was 100 yards away and when you got there it was only 12 feet wide and 8 feet from wall to water. Just go 3 miles north to the public beach it is beautiful. If you are looking for just a place to stay then this would be a nice place. If you are looking for a beautiful place on the beach then go ahead and spend 300 a night.Having a car is nice, but you can walk or take the bus. The drinks were expensive so stop by the Kirk Superstore and stock up on beer/water/ and hey you have a freezer so pick up yourself some icecream! Go to the Deckers for the Lobster!
The Wonderful Caymans!
My husband and I just got back from the Cayman Islands. We went to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed at the Comfort Suiets 7 mile beach. We reserved a 1 bedroom suite. The kitchen was nice with a microwave, dishwasher, stove and refridge. I would recommend bringing along some drinks. It can get expensive. A pina coloda will cost you about 9 dollars US each! 1 can of soda will cost you 1.25 at the soda machine. The breakfast consists of bagals, ceral, and watermelon. The OJ is not real it is like a punch and the punch has a funky taste.
There is a walkway to a so called beach, but there isn't one. I would reccomend renting a car from Budget ( cheapest) as soon as you step off your airplane. This way you can drive 3 miles WEST to the beauitful public beach. I reccommed eating at the Wharf around 7 PM so see the sunset and We also liked Deckers all you can eat lobster. They had the best Pina Colodas. Go to the Kirks food store and get some things to eat. Lunch at your place will be less expensive. 1.25 US = .80 cents CI cayman dollar. So yes we are getting ripped off. If you eat out the tip is included. Don't double tip unless you loved your service. Go to Rum Point for the day, see the blow holes. Bring Bug Spray the bugs are bad and you will get bit expecially if you are going to the botalical gardens off of frank sound road. Remember to always drive on the LEFT!
The comfort suites is a nice clean place to stay and the pool and bar is nice. Just make sure you have a car! Oh and Captain Marvins tour is nice. You must go swim with the stingrays!!
I'll Be Back
Enjoyed my stay at Comfort Suites. The poolwas a great gathering place to meet people and swim/sun. The beach was accessed by a shortwalkway. Beach lounge area was somewhat confusing. Breakfast was enjoyable but coffeewas too weak. Staff was extremely accomodating.Tips you should know: buses can be hailed most anywhere for $2.00. Best place to buy water is at the nearby Texaco. Buy prepaid phone cards at gas stations. Try the conch fritters. Make snorkeling a priority; especially the Stingray City Trip. Charter a Capt. for fishing. I'm going back.

... over the edge, and saw the wall unfold below me. Ferns and coral stuck out from the wall at all different levels, and you could see different "fish highways" at various levels down the wall. I was so excited to actually be with people for once! I tend to float much higher than everyone else, but I figure I'll move lower when I feel more comfortable.
