Great hotel near the beach.

Posted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: I loved the location, the service, and the value of the rooms.
Cons: The room AC units are pretty loud. The showers could use longer curtains, the ones there just reach the tub making it hard to keep the water in.
Location: It's a couple minutes walk from Seven Mile Beach and near shopping, diving, snorkeling, sailing opportunities.
Just returned from a stay at Sunshine Suites and am already looking forward to returning. The hotel grounds were clean and well-kept and the staff were all friendly and helpful. My room was a simple efficiency, perfect for fixing yourself snacks or light meals to save on dining out all the time. The room could use a little updating, but was still neat, clean and comfortable. It's a few minutes walk to the beach or the staff will drive you over by electric cart if you prefer. Either way, access to the beach at the Westin and its beach chairs/towels is easy. The restaurant on the property serves some fantastic food, and there are many great nearby restaurants to try out too, several within walking distance. Overall, the resort was really quiet, even being in a room facing the main road.

Remarkable hotel!

Posted Sep 4, 2016
Words cannot describe how lucky we were to have been able to stay at this fantastic hotel. I bet if you ask anyone who booked at the Westin...... lol. Trust me, don't book at the Westin right now. It's under going major renovations. We saw numerous people yelling at the employees of the Westin because they didn't seem to have been told what was going on. It will be gorgeous when it is completed. Upon arriving i was upgraded to a suite. As an expedia gold member I also had a bottle of 5 year old malbec waiting for me as well as a hand written card from management saying "how excited they were to have me". I loved the full kitchen, which my gf and i made use of. We are both 30 and were just thrilled to have all of these amenities. Not to mention the Free Breakfast ;) The location is the best on the island, 12 min walk to Fosters Market, being able to walk 2 mins to the best beach on the island. Truly remarkable. We were able to use all the amenties at the Westin with our 30 dollar resort fee per day. (Well worth it) The BBQ on Friday Night at the Westin might be the best dinner setting I have ever had. I have attached photos. So many people who booked at the Westin were devastated about their vacation. We were told by numerous people that we met that if they had to do it over again, they would have booked sunshine...hands down.

Nice hotel, close to the beach!

Posted Aug 14, 2016
We had an excellent week in Grand Cayman! The hotel, although a little dated, has immaculate grounds and great staff. The complimentary breakfast was great!! The only 'con' is that you must cross a fairly busy street to get to the most beautiful beach we've ever visited! A wonderful hotel!

Perfect Home Base

Posted Aug 13, 2016
Sunshine Suites offers incredible value for incredible proximity to 7 mile beach. A 2 minute walk puts you directly on the beach with access to all of the Westin's amenities. We spent two days there and two days exploring the various other beaches around the island. Clean, comfortable and accommodating; it's not necessary, don't pay the prices for being directly on the beach! The money we saved payed for amazing food and amazing experiences. We will definitely be back.

Check for construction first!

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Pros: The grounds are very neat and clean and the staff is very nice. Breakfast, while nothing spectacular, is better than a danish in plastic wrap.
Location: A short drive to Smith Cove, a great little beach spot!
The hotel itself is very comfortable and clean, a nice place to stay. What we were not told about was the construction going on at the Westin across the street. Yes, we still had to pay the $30 per day resort fee, PER ROOM, we had 2 rooms to accommodate 4 people. But, there was no resort to use for the $60 per day we paid. The Westin is under renovation and all of the pools are closed as is the entire center section of the hotel, For the resort fee, you still get beach access, which you can get for free just walking up or down the street and use of the beach towels. Seems that the resort fee should be waived while this construction is going on. Otherwise, the Sunshine is a nice place to stay.

Our resort charge covers more than pool access at our sister property such as complimentary breakfast, unlimited WiFi, access to fitness center, steam and sauna at the Hibiscus Spa, beach chairs, towels, and ambassadors. Thank you for the feedback, and we appreciate that this did not detract from enjoying your overall visit.

happly stay

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Love the location. Easy walk to the beach and always beach towels, chairs, and beach rafts. The hotel restaurant was amazing. Staff very friendly. Weather beautiful with very clean beaches. My only negative is the hotel rooms are slightly outdated. This was okay with us for the price and all of the other amenities. Great, relaxing stay.

Here is an honest review......

Posted Aug 5, 2016
Pros: EVERYTHING................
Cons: I was thinking more cable channels but that's nit picking besides we were out and about most of the time after all its beach heaven...............
Location: It is smack dab in the middle of everything from fine dining to seven mile beach perfect location we had a rental car so nothing is far..........
This hotel was awesome the staff was wonderful the room was clean the ac was cold the shower was hot bed was clean and really comfy the front desk crew were friendly helpful in every way and further more anybody that wrote bad things about this place must have personal issues or are prone to just be nasty complainers. I cannot say enough about this place even the free continental breakfast was fantastic I really liked the bread for toast its thick homemade kinda bread not like American bag bread that's thin and wilty Belgium waffles were yummy coffee and apple n orange juices milk both hot and cold yogurt fresh fruit cereals hard boiled eggs pastry's spice bread oatmeal croissants I mean really whats not to like it was a free kick start to your day "fantastic". In ending I do not have one bad thing to say about this hotel and I give the highest kudos to the entire staff from the front desk to the cleaning ladies to the sweet lady doing the continental breakfast they were all just really really wonderful group of people and I would have loved to have given em all a big south Texas hug and thank them for making our stay in Grand Cayman everything I hoped it would be. And yes I will most defiantly stay at this wonderful hotel again and I cannot wait to do it....................

Very clean resort! The food at the Sunshine Grill was excellent, and the complimentary daily breakfast was more than enough! It was nice having a shuttle that took us across the street to the Westin Hotel and beach. There's not a more gorgeous beach than 7 Mile Beach! Great vacay!!!
