Unit # 6 was lovely, right on beach!!!! Condo was great, very clean, had everything you needed, full stocked kitchen supplies, water sports, beach chairs many beach towels. Condo had plenty of sitting room, very large screened tv, screened in porch was great if you have kids, or just sit in and relax, close to all you do not need a car....Simon & Nora were great, greeted us and showed us everything, were very helpful and close by if any problems. Thank you Simon & Nora, WE WILL be back.....
The title says it all!
Well let me first start by saying that Simon is excellent to deal with. Although he couldn't be there during our stay due to uncontrollable circumstances, he had everything handled by his property manager, Marcos, who was extremely accommodating. With that being said, on to the condo.
Laguna Del Mar #6 is a gorgeous unit right on the beach that is extremely private, very well appointed, and is like your own private oasis. This was our first time in Grand Cayman and the island is just beautiful! We loved that we had our own private beach right at our doorstep and were able to have a spectacular view of the crystal blue ocean every morning while drinking our coffee. The condo is fully stocked with everything you could need and has more than enough room for everyone, we had 6 people. We also loved the BBQ grill out by the pool and made great use of it our week there, cooking on it 4 of our 7 days there. The location of the unit was great too. We walked to almost everywhere that we wanted to with the exception of the grocery store cause of the bags. Extremely clean grounds and very friendly staff throughout the complex.Without hesitation we would, and probably will, stay at Laguna Del Mar again as it was everything and more than we could have hoped for. Please don't think twice because the pictures don't do this unit any justice. Thanks again Simon for an incredible getaway! Look forward to dealing with you in the future.
We stayed at this property in June for a week long summer vacation. This property is beautiful! The beach was quiet and right out the back door. The house was also fully stocked with any cooking supplies you would need.
The property owners were the icing on the cake! They went above and beyond to make sure that we enjoyed our stay in Grand Cayman.
-They met us at the airport so we could follow them to the property as the traffic can first seem intimidating.
-We were brought tennis racquets and extra towels within hours of asking for them.
-The owner came to the property early in the morning so that he could guide us to the location of our excursion. (above and beyond expectation)
-There was a situation that was out of his control but he made sure that we were taken care of quite fairly.
We have stayed in several VRBO properties but we have never been as satisfied with the service of the owner and the beauty of the property. We will definitely be back!
What a great place to stay! With only ~2 of the properties here renting, the beach in front of the complex is always quiet. That view of the ocean out the porch is 100% real and people walking along the beach are a comfortable distance beyond the rope (few, but enough to people watch). The rooms are very nice and the property is nicely decorated. We stayed in the king room looking out over the ocean and the shower in that room was amazing. But, I think my oldest daughter had the prettiest room which is the other king room. The soaking tub and four poster bed are beautiful in there. The property has 3 full baths so our family of five had plenty of room to spread out and get ready.
Tips: We used the Sting Ray concierge service to have all our supermarket groceries, wine and paddleboard delivered and ready for us when we got there. It was nice to not lose a half day to gather these items. Also, we decided to NOT rent a car at the last minute. A rental car large enough for a family of 5 and bags was going to cost me $604US/Week. The taxis here are plentiful and huge - easily fitting my family and all of our luggage. The cost from the airport was $38US. And we just took cabs when we didn't want to walk (Georgetown ~$18US, Ritz area ~$20). And we we did tours that picked us up at our door (Highly recommend Six Sense Tours). So taxis were definitely cheaper for us, more convenient, and I could enjoy a glass of wine at a restaurant knowing I was being driven home!
I would recommend a decent amount of cash with you. The taxis do not accept CC. Everywhere on the island takes US currency and Cayman Island currency (CI). The exchange rate is always $1 CI = $1.25 US. Most every shop takes CC/Visa.
We like to snorkel and there is a nice, but smaller reef right out the door! We also walked/swam down to the Marriott and enjoyed the reef out in front of them. We also did a great 1.5 mile hike to the governors mansion and did the most amazing snorkel!
This was our first trip to GC and absolutely fell in love. It is a beach, snorkeling, water lovers paradise. Of all the Caribbean Islands we have stayed (many) this one was not only our favorite, but it blew us away! Every person in the service field was so genuine and kind. Servers, taxi Cab drivers, guides, hosts all enjoyed conversation and had a warm smile for you. The island is pricey,,, But, I feel they also have the most to offer and it allows the locals to earn enough to LIVE - thus, they are all happy!
This was my first experience renting though VRBO. Simon was very prompt with his communications during the booking process and readily available to answer any questions prior to our arrival. When we got there, the groceries that I ordered and the paddle boards and snorkel gear I rented and were waiting for us. All we had to do was change into our swim suits and we were good to go for the week.
The condo is lovely and spacious, in a very safe complex. This first floor unit walks right out to the lovely Seven Mile Beach. We did not rent a car and didn't need one. There are several restaurants, from casual to gourmet upscale, in walking distance. Cab service is easy to come by as well.
Grand Cayman is a lovely, safe and friendly destination. I felt comfortable letting my 18-year-old daughter and her friend go anywhere on the island by themselves. The locals are charming and happy to share their paradise. The waters of the Caribbean Sea are unmatched in their clarity and beauty.
I would definitely recommend this condo and destination to a friend.
Trust me, I am not one to write reviews. I hate typing and that seems to be all that I do. However, in this case, I feel I must write an review. First, let me tell you about Nora and Simon.... When you first work with them on the phone, they seem to be nice people and want to accommodate your needs. Well, let me tell you about that....They are indeed wonderful people and amazing people and truly care that your experience with them, there condo and your overall trip is everything you would of hoped it to be and more. The reason I say this, is not only is it true, but on one of the days when Nora was going to escort us to the Marina, she sadley got into an accident. Even with being in a pretty bad accident, she still made sure that we were accomodated and put her needs second to us.
Simon, as well bent over backwards to assure that we have a amazing time. And let me tell you, Simon went all out for us and his place was absolutely beautiful. The pics you see are real and everything it promises to be.
If you are going to spend the money for this place, please know it is well spent. To give you an example, I spent one night at the Westin before I stayed in the Condo for a week. The Westin rate was only $349.00 a night... But when they added the hidden fees such as a resort fee, high taxes, rediculous prices on appetizers and soft drinks, etc, that one night cost me $550.00 The condo rate is extremely fair especially with being right on the beach with a walk out directly on the beach and with 3 beautiful bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
I just can't say enough about the condo, Simon and Nora. All together, it is a A+ I just must apologize that it took me this long to write the review being that I was there at the end of January
Hope you have a great trip...... Oh, and if you love ribs, the best place in the world is just 1 block away at Peppers...
Thank you, Steve Brick
