A Caribbean paradise filled with picture-perfect beaches and family-friendly activities, Grand Cayman is a top destination for a vacation with kids. Here are the best Grand Cayman resorts for a memorable family getaway.
One of the more affordable boutique hotels along Seven Mile Beach, The Locale Hotel Grand Cayman offers family suites that sleep six. A short walk to Camana Bay, this hotel is a good choice for families looking for an all-inclusive Grand Cayman experience.
Nestled amidst Seven Mile Beach’s pristine sands, The Ritz-Carlton transcends Grand Cayman family resorts with its blend of luxurious amenities, dedicated kids’ clubs, and personalized service. Every family member indulges in their slice of island paradise, from beachfront splash pads to gourmet poolside bites.
Rooms feature traditional Caribbean beach decor, with separate tubs and showers. Most rooms face the beach, but some are inland and overlook the pool and gardens. The hotel offers an all-inclusive package, including accommodation, three meals, and alcoholic beverages. This is an excellent option for families who want to avoid budget worries and relax on the beaches and in the resort.
The resort is perfect for exploring the water, with many snorkeling, scuba diving, and glass-bottom boat expeditions available. You can also explore caves and shipwrecks and walk along a stretch of pristine shoreline. Through Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program, several activities can be enjoyed on land, such as watersports and eco-adventures.
The Hampton by Hilton
With glistening white sand beaches, warm blue waters, and a range of kid-friendly activities, the Cayman Islands is a Caribbean paradise. And since it’s just about a six-hour flight for most families, it’s also a very accessible destination for a tropical escape.
With an impressive scenic beachfront location, The Hampton by Hilton Grand Cayman Resort & Spa offers a premium Caribbean experience for families. Although it’s a bit further from the sand than some other Grand Cayman resorts, I found its family-friendly features and amenities worth the walk.
You can spend your days enjoying the hotel’s spacious rooms and suites, which come with a kitchenette and 55-inch LED TV. Alternatively, you can head to one of the resort’s on-site restaurants to enjoy a delicious meal. The resort offers guests a free shuttle to pristine public beaches and Camana Bay.
This resort is also home to the best pool in Grand Cayman, which offers an excellent place for younger children to swim and play. Alternatively, you can enjoy the spa and fitness center to relax and unwind. And if you’re in the mood for more fun, several recreational activities are also available, such as snorkeling and diving. The Hampton by Hilton is committed to sustainability and has achieved third-party certifications.
Coral Stone Club
For a vacation that feels like a home away from home, please choose one of Grand Cayman’s resorts on its famous Seven Mile Beach. These resorts mix unique local properties with upscale global brands, giving families options and awesome hotel perks.
The Coral Stone Club is a condo resort located directly on Seven Mile Beach, offering spectacular views of this peaceful stretch of paradise. Spend your days working on your tan or enjoying the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. If you’re feeling active, dip in the ninety-foot vast zero-entry pool or enjoy a luxurious whirlpool spa. Or, work up a sweat with a workout in the modern gym.
This property features 75 villas and 200 condos, including spacious family rooms and dreamy bedrooms with ocean views. The décor varies by unit, but many feature tropical pattern fabrics and seashell decorations. Kitchens include full-sized refrigerators, ovens, and ample cookware, dishware, and flatware. Bathrooms are outfitted with Gilchrist & Soames bath products and offer plenty of space. You can also book a relaxing massage or facial at the on-site spa to treat yourself on vacation. If you’re hungry, the resort has a variety of restaurants to please every palate. With a short drive, you can also see the stalactites at the Cayman Crystal Caves or hike the two-mile Mastic Trail.
The Sunshine Suites
Located less than 200 yards from Seven Mile Beach, this warm Caribbean-style all-suite hotel offers the best of both worlds. Guests enjoy the comfort of private rooms with full kitchens (large fridge, microwave, stove top, coffee maker, cookware, dishes, and utensils) without breaking the bank.
It’s an ideal pick for families as well as couples with kids. With a pool, hot tub, and the Sunshine Grill, it’s also an excellent place for group vacations. The restaurant, rated high by recent guests, overlooks the pool area and is one of the most popular spots on the resort for meals—it’s known for serving delicious fish tacos.
While it may not have the luxury features of the other resorts, The Sunshine Suites is a tried-and-true favorite for many Cayman visitors who love its direct beach access and solid amenities. Guests can lounge at the pool, drink or two at the bar, and enjoy the beautiful beachfront scenery.
The property also houses a full-service spa, a fitness center, a kids’ club, and two pools with swim-up bars. And with a daily resort fee of only $19, it’s a fantastic value for those looking to spend time by the sea. The hotel guests can also use the beach and other facilities at the sister property, The Westin Grand Cayman.
