GRAND Accomodation at Grand Cayman

Review submitted: July 21, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

Our stay at Cayman Castle started out a bit bumpy! (But please read ENTIRE review).

The day before our arrival we were advised of an electrical short at the Cayman Castle, causing all electricity to be out for the weekend. Our entire trip had been planned solely to stay at “The Castle”, so this news was devastating to us! We were advised that we would be put up temporarily at another location for two nights, and promises were made that the problem would be fixed over the weekend. (But we were skeptical that ANY repairs could be done on Saturday & Sunday, and feared our Family Reunion Vacation was ruined! …….we were proven wrong!!!!!).

Our temporary weekend accommodations were somewhat cramped, but VERY NICE (“Two Rainbows” Villa, over at Rum Point). During that time I was stunned to see 5-6 workmen pulling double-overtime on Sat & Sun to repair the problem at The Castle. (It was no minor problem!!!!). And as promised, it was ready for us on Monday! And it was worth the wait! (And for our trouble, we were not only compensated for the difference in price for our temporary 2-day relocation, but also afforded a “dinner on Jim” at the FABULOUS Tukka Restaurant nearby!).

And now, with that out of the way, my REVIEW OF CAYMAN CASTLE: Our family chose The Castle based on the pictures we saw on the website, and the luxury, exclusivity, spaciousness and amenities of the entire property! We were not disappointed. The rooms are fresh, updated and luxurious! The bathrooms are all roomy, modern and beautifully designed. Kitchen is first class and affords all modern conveniences. Linens are fresh, and towels plentiful. But all that is a distant second to the beautiful location of The Castle. The porches, decks and patios overlook some of the prettiest water in the Caymans. There is a fantastic snorkel reef about 200 yards straight away from the Castle’s stairs into the Caribbean. (Use the kayaks provided to row out to underwater heaven. Tie up to the buoy and swim around to see stingray, squid, lobster, starfish and a whole aquarium of colorful fish, just a short paddle away). We also enjoyed sharing the grounds with some fascinating (and large) Iguanas who seemed to join us for coffee each morning on the lower patio. (But don’t worry! They are harmless, and more afraid of you, than you are of them!). The pool and surrounding patio, is not only cool and refreshing, but offers a fantastic setting to wind down at the end of the day! The view over the zero

family birthday celebration

Review submitted: May 28, 2012   Date of arrival: May 12, 2012

The castle was great UNTIL it rained. Our family rented the castle & guesthouse. We were in the guesthouse & on our last day water poured in thru the windows & water leaked from the ceiling fan in the center of the room. We spent our last day in Cayman cleaning up large amounts of water dripping from the ceiling fan, kitchen & windows. I would NOT recommend anyone staying there unless this is rectified. We were not told that the place leaked before booking the house. If we knew about the leaks, we may have chosen to stay somewhere else

Owners response: This large family stayed for two weeks...and enjoyed great weather until day #9 when the heavens opened (tropical storm Beryl formed over top of Grand Cayman). Cayman had record rainfall of 13" in 2 days(!!) and it rained sideways..the schools closed and government buildings shut down. The Castle & Guesthouse are in east end and the rain & wind came from the east..so it was sideways against the sliding doors and windows and leaked under the sliders-- the guests used towels to soak up rainwater--and we sent out maids to do the towels for them. We also had a roof drain blocked which caused a ceiling leak--so our roofer and contractor went over and unplugged that clog..so the kitchen roof stopped leaking. We also caulked the doors...It was just a rotten final 5 nights in Cayman for this family...so I offered to send them to the Lighthouse Restaurant for dinner ($1,000 limit) even though the second week I discounted for them almost 30%. They didn't accept the offer...and only after they left the island, posted this abysmal review of the house (1 star?) AND demanded a refund. I did what I could do for them while on island and offered a nice dinner as a kind gesture of condolence for the weather. There is just no way to please everyone. I am sure they will want to submit more negative reviews. Please read the 5 years of good reviews and understand that some people can never be happy when the weather turns bad like it did. 13" of rain is almost half the annual rainfall for the east end historically!!

CORRECTIVE ACTION: I flew down as soon as they left..hired a roofer and contractor and completely removed the second floor roof and re-sloped the decking, installed a new membrane and drains...we also siliconed around the sliding glass doors--but in a 30mph 1"/hr sideways rainstorm...sliding door tracks will spill over...I am glad that we only have 1-2 of these storms a year.

Cayman Castle

Review submitted: September 12, 2011   Date of arrival: March 14, 2009

The stay at the "Castle" was outstanding. (We rented the castle and guesthouse) It was March of 2009 and it was our chance to bring family and friends together in one great location. Our kids; grandchildren and friends enjoyed the spacious accommodations that allowed all of us the opportunity for both privacy and socialization. The rooms were comfortable and the location great for water sports (swimming (ocean and heated pool), kayaking, snorkeling and kite surfing!) We have been renting in the Caribbean since 2002 and without question Jim offers the most personalized of services. PS: My grandson, now nine, has a goal to one day buy the castle, top that for a recommendation! Bill from Massachusetts

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing
