Since this was our only tender port we decided to book on A ships tour to Sting Ray City. Don Fosters is the company they use. They have a great boat, large & comfortable with easy water access. Snorkelling with the rays, is a really magic experience, they are so gentle, and seem to love being stroked. On board was a professional underwater photographer, who entered the water with us and get some really good photos of us all. Back on board, you view them on his ...
... there was a photography that captured all these special moments and was ready with 2 Ipads to show and sell his photos. When Kara told him we weren't interested, he said he would give her one anyway. What a nice guy!! Then back to a starfish area, and they were there! Quite a trip. This was billed as a local tour and it didn't seem so commercial. We had the skipper, Shane or Shawn, with his son as crew. That young man was ...
... It might have a yellow snapper or a tarpon - not sure what they look like but I know they get fed at the restaurant at 9 pm. After we stopped to look at it, more big fish came by as well as some smaller blue fish and some small, very narrow fish. We were quite excited.
We walked back to the Wharf Restaurant and went in despite out casual wear and our lack of reservations. We had a lovely meal - Kara ...

It took us a fair while to row out and when we got there, we looked back and couldn't see the swimmers.

It took them another good 5 minutes swimming and when they finally arrived, we discovered that they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach
Inconsistent service is a major problem at the Ritz Grand Cayman. Granted that they have recently opened, (almost three months ago), yet they are operating with the chaos associated with issues that should have been resolved much sooner.
With room prices from $600 and up, you expect a lot. I was at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman Feb. 24 through March 1 and frankly, if my company wasn't paying for it, I would have been very unhappy with what you get for the money.
Wow....What an experience. After we found out the Westin and Hyatt were fully booked we decided to splurge and stay at the Ritz. I was a little cautious paying a grand a night for Oceanfront Club level. When I tried to get a slightly lower rate I was politely informed that "we think we're worth it, come find out". And you know, if you like large luxury hotels and impeccable service, I think they are right.
Best on the Island
We just returned from this hotel and WOW!! How fantastic. The pools are amazing. try to stay on the side on the beach with the residences. They have much better views. THe restaurants are great there too. make sure to make reservations early as some are closed certain nights of the week. also dont miss calypso grill or papagayo on the island. This is by far the nicest, newest and best choice on the island.
Make sure to walk the hotel. It is expansive. Tiffanys is there too !!!
I'm a big fan of RC hotels, and have stayed or visited 16 different RC properties. But the RC Grand Cayman was "unusually expensive" for ANY resort. Is it because it's Grand Cayman where everything is expensive? Yeah probably, but here's the skinny.
This hotel and this island reminds me of Maui in the 70's with internet access, fax machines and modern cuisine. Time travel isn't cheap though, this place is very expensive but my wife (the thrifty one in the family) does not care. She has already booked to come back! You have to know my wife, she would drive 2 miles to save a nickle a gallon on gas but will hapilly spend $1500 a night here for a simple room for a week (well, the rooms are anything but simple).
The Staff at the Ritz were excellent. Many were from Cancun, due to Hurricane. Weather was in the 80's and inside the RC was very well air conditioned. The Golf Course is not due to be completed until April, but looks like it is coming along nicely. Tennis courts are done. That side of the Hotel was quite windy this time of year. The BEACH is perfect, somedays calm somedays small waves to entertain those age 3-83. Crystal clear water and soft sand. A FANTASTIC BEACH!
I went to the Ritz for a quick getaway with my wife. We booked a club level room for $1200 a night (including tax and service fee). This fee included breakfast and $100 towards non alcoholic drinks for the stay. When we arrived I immediatelly enquired about staying in an oceanfront view room. In most Ritz-Carltons the club floor is always the best floor, yet in Grand Cayman this was not the case. The club floor is on the third floor in the back of the hotel. At check in we were informed that they only had an oceanfront room with two queen size beds, or the original club room with a king size bed. We decided to see the rooms for ourselves. The choice was quickly made as we entered the club floor room with a view of a parking lot. The hotel did accomodate us with full access to the club lounge and an ocean front view. Yet I can't help but think of what my reaction would have been had we arrived during peak season. I would have been livid with the thought of staying in the "garage" room. Our second issue deals with the clientele of the hotel. The hotel has 380 rooms and as such can cater to large groups. During our stay Allianz had some sort of retreat at the Ritz. Mostly, the members of this group seemed to come off the set of "Old School". There is nothing worst than a classless group of ovegrown drunks being given free reign and all they can drink tabs. From taking over the pool for their tackle frisbee football games, to screaming obscenities at lunch and dinner (I think they were too hung over to scream at breakfast). Overall, if the hotel had a more refined clientele, and a club level with ocean front views I think my review would be vastly better. The decor of the hotel is fantastic, the staff is top notch and the beach is one of the most beautiful in the world. Also, the food although pricey is outstanding.
Checked in ~2 days after 12/15/05 opening. Typical outstanding Ritz service. One adult + 3 kids in a club level room. A few minor issues with the room -- no clock, bathtub stopper didn't work, voice messages sometimes not working, some TV channels didn't come in. All were fixed quickly upon request.
Arrived 2nd day of opening...stayed 5 nights in one the oceanfront room. Experience a bit tainted due to typical grand opening room mishaps but the staff more than made-up for these. I am sure things will work itself out once the hotel is up and running for a couple of weeks. The resort is still not completely finished...work is still being done on the oceanfront side where the condos are. The food options at the resort are very good and we tried all 4 restaurants...better than the food we tried outside the resort so I would recommend staying on-site for food choices. Lots of water activities to choose from at the resort (snorkeling, sailing, etc...) and the spa is wonderful. Usual R-C standards...extremely friendly staff...beautiful resort...would definitely go back.
