Overview

On-site amenities range from a golf course to a spa to six restaurants and bars
Pricey resort fee

At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding whether to start along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Recent visitors praised the guest rooms, which are outfitted with private balconies or terraces, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges. However, some lamented the pricey daily resort fee. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use of the resort's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime Cayman Islands location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the property's five other restaurants or bars. What's more, this Ritz-Carlton outpost falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Rewards members can collect or redeem points here.

The ... classic rooms and eleven suites favor soft yellow walls, botanical prints, chaise longues, and humongous beds in maize, periwinkle or coral. By spring, the Greg Norman nine-hole golf course should be in full swing.

The prestigious Ritz-Carlton Resort spans the width of this part of Grand Cayman from Seven Mile Beach to North Sands, occupying 143 acres and one of the widest, sandiest stretches of the beach. Through deft architectural planning the sumptuous surroundings reveal nothing of the island's geography, or even that the property straddles West Bay Road, the main thoroughfare parallel to the beach.
