Grand Cayman Marriott
Posted Mar 20, 2017
Stayed at GC Marriott mid March 2017 and it is a lovely and lively hotel. Nice room s/balcony, clean bathroom (but 1 ply toilet paper.. needs to be 2 ply⁄) and great bed, linens. Multiple meal options are all very good. Staff is extremely friendly, very competent, and was very impressed with how hard they all work to please the guests. Not so sure the guests were as appreciative as they could've been, however!! The reason I did not give it a 5 is because of the size of the beach which has been seriously eroded, leaving very limited space for many chairs.. it's like sardines packed on the spit of beach. But great location on 7 Mile Beach and wider beaches everywhere else. Close to lots of restaurants, shops, etc. and away from downtown Georgetown which is completely overwhelmed with cruise boat travelers. Don't go to town when they are there.. usually 4-5 at a time. Included in resort fee is free usage of paddle boards, kayaks, etc. and there are water trampolines and a couple of platforms in the water to use. Snorkeling off beach but limited fish. Oyster reef just off beach so there are some fish to see. Try other parts of the beach to see more. All in all, a very nice stay and great for families (of which there were quite a few), couples, etc.
