No title - expert review
Secluded on the remote northwest tip of the island, Grand Cayman's only all-inclusive resort is blessed with wonderful shore diving, especially during the calmer summer months. Boardwalks connect simple guest rooms. Though it's showing signs of age, the resort does offer a pleasant level of privacy....

No title - expert review
This is a small, intimate resort set in an isolated location amid the scrublands of the northwestern tip of Grand Cayman. The hotel recovered relatively quickly after Hurricane Ivan, although initially it housed construction workers rushed here to help rebuild the island. It was back in business by ...

Not what we were expecting. - user review
First the positive The staff here is extremely friendly and will get to know you on a personal basis. After the first day they knew you by name. Negetive Hotel is old and a long way from everything. There is no beach to swim in unless you want to snorkel or dive. Wind often comes from the west and w...

Nice enough - user review
From reading prior reviews, I expected to be dazzled by the hospitality of this place. I was impressed with the food, and enjoyed the solitude. Most of the staff were polite and helpful, if a little indifferent. But the service and assistance from the front desk, was less than impressive. Not rude, ...

villa by the beach - user review
I stayed at villa 57 , the last one between the land and the ocean, and the vieuws all around from every window were supurb. As many said before food was excellent , dont expect refined haute cuisine but deliciously cooked home menu buffets and lots of real rum drinks. Most friendly staff made me fe...

It’s an Old, Quaint, Quiet Place - user review
Ideal for avid scuba divers/snorkelers, but their equip. needs repair. Two types of divers: not cert. (they sell courses) and well experienced. I'm a certified, inexperienced vacation diver and was criticized for not knowing their procedures. If diving, show cert. card, get air, and go. Grounds main...

Very good as a 2 star hotel - user review
If you are looking for a 4 or 5 start hotel then this is not the place to go. I can tell as that is our typical level. But if you are looking for good basic hotel, exellent service, good basic food (with sufficient daily variations) and drinks (as big as you wish), sufficient location (on an island ...

Don’t stay here - user review
My first impression when driving into the driveway was, Oh...No... There was a reason the drive was dark and no outside lights were on the place is a dump. The room = room doors did not lock, shower reminded me of my first walk up flat when I was in college, half the lights did not turn on and like ...

Dive Resort - user review
My husband and I stayed at the Spanish Bay Reef Resort for 7 wonderful days in the Cayman Islands. The resort was not on 7 mile beach, but rather on the other side of the island. However, their sister resort was on 7 mile, so we spent half of our time over there. The sister resort has more water act...

Best kept secret on Grand Cayman - user review
My husband spent a week at this wonderful resort starting on Saturday February 10,2007. The beach is nice and an added attraction is being able to take a free shuttle to 7 mile beach several days of the week and utilize a sister hotel with lunch and 2 drinks. That was an added bonus. The gals at the...

A perfect relaxing vacation - user review
My sister and I take a trip every March. This year it was to Spanish Bay Reef in Grand Cayman. What a beautiful spot. We upgraded our room when we got there to an ocean view cottage. The resort is small and uncrowded. We were steps away from the beach, the restaurant, bar and pool. The hammocks are ...

Last hidden treasure in Grand Cayman - user review
Resort is closing in July. What a loss. Diving: easy access, easy swim to the walls, very good corals and fish. The service was 5 star. Food was great, adequate selection, well prepared. Staff was very friendly. Everything needed was included. Sure only 5 channels on tv but who is there for tv. A li...

Kudos to the staff - user review
Since I prefer to start on a positive note. The staff here is great. They are friendly and take time to get to know you. They really do make you feel at home. My husband said the diving was super (on the days the water was calm enough to dive) Bus service to town was convenient, reliable and reasona...

Will stay here next trip to Grand Cayman - user review
Spanish Bay provided an excellent full service dive shop on site, wide stair entrance to shore dive from the hotel, and multi day packages for boat diving. The food is excellent!!! We always wanted to eat dinner at the hotel, it was just that good. Traveler's tip on getting the most out of your stay...

Worth every penny - user review
The hotel was in a beautiful location. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous The rooms were comfortable, although this is not a four star resort so if you are expecting that go elsewhere. It was by far the best bet for your money on the island. The food and beverage was above average and wh...

Second trip, and we’d do it again - user review
The last time we were there 3 years ago, the entertainment was better after dinner, the staff smiled more, and the hot tub worked. Despite those minor disappointments, this is a lovely spot, away from the bustle of Seven Mile Beach but with the convenience of a free almost daily shuttle to the siste...

Lovely quiet small hotel - user review
this is small hotel in a secluded part of the island. The staff are wonderful and the food excellent quality. Our family loved it. It is very quiet and peaceful Do not expect lots of night entertainment or to be near shops. Good di...

Spanish Bay Reef Hotel - user review
Very enjoyable stay; the food was great; hotel employees very friendly and helpful; great snorkeling right off the shore; quiet location away from the 7 mile beach but not far away either. Resort is not fancy or plush but has the basics and a good place to get away from it all. Ocean view room was w...

Will go back every year until the hurricane’s take them out NUMBER 1 place to stay - user review
Was the best treatment that I have ever had in all of my travels. The staff was wonderful, the food was to die for, and the seclusion and guest made it a wonderful experience. I would recomend this place to everyone. It was paradise and we will return from now on, every year. Thanks very much Travel...

Beautiful Setting - user review
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The atmosphere was very laid back and slow. This is not a place of luxury or pampering but beauty and comfort. There is no pressure or rush for anything. The staff was overall friendly but often seemed indifferent to the guests needs. Snorkeling gear was great, and the l...

Definitely going back - user review
We had the most wonderful time. The staff is second to none. Beautiful diving right off shore, all included and at your own pace. Quiet and peaceful with easy access to Seven Mile Beach, Georgetown, or other Grand Cayman attractions if you wish. You can't beat this resort on Grand Cayman. Definitely...

Loved it - user review
We loved the Spanish Bay...but here are a few things that we didn't like. No water pressure for shower. Too many cruise ship people Tue, Wed, and Thur. Had to pay for internet service. Other than those issues we loved it and would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay for a...

We would go back again. - user review
We visited in January and we were very happy with the hotel. The staff was great and we enjoyed chatting with the other guests. The dive shop was very helpful. We visited the sister resort on 7 mile beach and the beach was crowed with cruise ship day visitors. Spanish Bay was quiet and you could wal...

Can’t wait to go back! - user review
What a pleasant surprise! I had read the reviews before I book this resort, but I'll tell you what, this location is prime if your looking to relax, enjoy three daily meals with great variety, incredible staff and great dive shop which provides all you need for shore diving. Its a quiet location, bu...

Beautiful Location Away from the Hustle & Bustle of 7 Mile Beach - user review
Yes, this is a two star establishment. If you're used to the best of accommodations, this may not be the place for you. However, don't let your first impression overwhelm you this place is a diamond in the rough. The hotel grounds and location are wonderful. The reef area is exceptional we were neve...
