When it comes to finding the perfect Cayman Island hotel, travel writers say that location is a key factor. The archipelago's largest island, Grand Cayman, offers the widest variety of lodgings, most of which sit along the famed Seven Mile Beach. For complete luxury, consider the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman and don't miss out on seeing the rare Blue Iguanas living on the grounds.
Grand Cayman's sister islands, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, also offer their fair share of accommodations, from intimate resorts to condos. Most of these hotels, including Little Cayman's Pirates Point Resort and Cayman Brac's Cayman Breakers are geared toward the diving population, who visit these islands regularly.
Budget travelers should be aware that room rates rise during the peak winter season; to get the best prices, travel writers suggest you plan a trip for early spring or summer.
