Caribbean Club Luxury Boutique Hotel
9 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
It doesn't get any better than this.
"Our stay was perfect. The beach was beautiful, the unit was gorgeous, the location was near restaurants and a good grocery store and the staff was professional and responsive. We've stayed on 7 Mile Beach several times and nothing compared to this. We never felt crowed by other guests. We were a short walk to a Red Sail sports hub for diving which was convenient for recreation but we suffered none of the crowds associated with that convenience. Although the property was immaculate, it did not feel stuffy at all. For great snorkling we needed to walk about 20 minutes down the beach, but we did view some fish and other sea life from our beach. The Luca restaurant on the property was excellent and we had food delivered to our door within 10 minutes of placing the call. We ate out less than expected because we didn't want to leave our own incredible view."

Most spectacular place we ever stayed!
"We have been to Grand Cayman 9 times, and hands down this was the best place where we have ever stayed. The property is new and immaculate and has everything anyone would need. The staff led by Danielle the property manager, is warm, friendly and is willing to be as helpful as you need. The daily housekeeping is fantastic and there even is a nightly turn down service with a great little touch of mini candy bars. For the price of two ocean front view single rooms at the Ritz, we stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath fully equipped 2400 sq. ft. condo with a huge balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. We stayed 7 nights and the most people on the huge beach during our stay was 25. The beautiful infinity pool also never had more then 10 people in it. If you are looking 5 star private luxury holiday ,the Caribbean Club is for you. Why go to a crowded resort and be packed in like sardines when you can get your own quiet spacious beach!
The Caribbean Club is located in the heart of Seven Mile Beach across from the best restaurants, and a huge supermarket. What more can you ask for . I would never stay at a big box resort again. We are already making our plans for next year.
There is nothing that this place is missing!
FANTASTIC TOTALLY 5 STARS!"

Fantastic property and I know Cayman better than most!!
"I have been going to Grand Cayman for over 20 years and my wife and I also owned a condo there for 10 years. I can tell you that the Caribbean Club is as good as it gets on seven mile beach. My wife and I, and our good friends who also owned property in Grand Cayman spent five nights at the Caribbean Club in Feb. 09. Great condo with all the amenities, best beach on seven mile beach,and well run with friendly staff and a great manager Danielle Wolfe."

A Room With A View
"It's hard not to ooze superlatives over this place, but it really does bring out every unctuous bone in my body. The apartments are exquisite with interior decor that could grace the cover of any lifestyle magazine; the views are heaven sent & the manager Danielle, is warm, welcoming and will help every guest to enjoy the holiday of the lifetime.
My favourite room is 209, with a wrap around balcony overlooking the beach, I've been lucky enough to stay in some of the world's best hotels and this ranks in my top 3."

Perfect place for a destination wedding!!
"We recently celebrated our destination wedding at the Caribbean Club. After researching many other resorts on Seven Mile Beach and other islands and locations for our wedding, we decided that the Caribbean Club was the perfect spot for many reasons. We decided against a hotel resort because we wanted our guests to have more space and more freedom to relax in what would be their home away from home. A condo resort better fit this bill. After much research, we decided on the Caribbean Club. No other resorts were even in the same league when it came to the size of the condos, location (centrally located right across the street from the grocery store, liquor store, shops and restaurants), decor, quality of furniture and appliances, Luca Restaurant, and overall set-up.
We occupied 8 of the units and every single unit was unique in appeal and gorgeous inside. The ground level poolside units were like having the beach and pool as your personal foyer, yet the tower units were floating above the sea wtih breathtaking views.
We believe one of the reasons our destination wedding was so successful was because of this resort and how it allowed everyone their privacy, but at the same time, provided a place of community. The condos were so spectacular that any time our guests wanted to get together, they would simply have their own little soiree on their balconies or have dinner parties in their grand dining rooms. I expected guests to want to venture out more and search for different restaurants. They enjoyed the balconies and the proximity to the ocean so much, very few ever left the comforts of their gourmet kitchen for an outside meal, but when they did, there are a number of great restaurants within walking distance. Furthermore, we held our Welcome Party steps off of our beachfront condo (which Luca catered and Octopus Events put together...fire dancer and all!), the ceremony was at the top of the pool, and the reception was at Luca Restaurant. Luca Restaurant could be its own review in and of itself. Their food is amazing, the service was exceptional, the interior is trendy and chic, and the fact that we held a private reception for 60 guests, 10 steps away from the ceremony site couldn't have been more convenient. We love Luca!!) We had everything we needed at the Caribbean Club without feeling like we were sharing it with 200 other people, like one may have felt had they celebrated their event in a large hotel resort.
We had an amazing wedding and our guests are still talking about the great times and this special place. I wanted to mention a few key people in this whole process... Thanks to Danielle Wolf, Manager of the Caribbean Club for all of her assistance...Danielle Cococcia of Octopus Events, our wondeful wedding planner for everything htat made our destination wedding spectacular...and Laura and Luca Restaurant for the delicously memorable food and unparalleled service.
We will definitely be back the Caribbean Club, not only to relive memories, but to savor the touch of luxury in Grand Cayman."

Exquisite Stay at Caribbean Club
"My now husband (fiancÃ© at the time) and I booked a very special room at the Caribbean Club for our January wedding. We wanted to stay on Seven Mile Beach and experience this new, luxurious, boutique residence hotel.
What a fabulous idea this was!!! Our room was 10 times more luxurious than expected, the views of the Ocean and the famous 7 Mile Beach were unbelievable and the service was impeccable.
We visited a few rooms and noticed that they are all designed with the same goal in mind: YOU, the visitor!
All of the rooms are spacious, trendy and decorated with style. We truly enjoyed the pool, the beach and the wonderful starry nights. Overall, this hotel rates very high in our books and is quite spectacular! We are recommending it to you, without a doubt in our minds, that you will absolutely love this "home away from home" in the Cayman Islands! This boutique residence hotel is so worth it!

Love this place
"This was our second stay at the Caribbean Club; it is simply the best place to stay on the island. Having been going to the Caymans for years, we were truly amazed by the accommodations and service that the Caribbean Club provides.
Management Team â Danielle and her staff are amazing, pleasant, outgoing and always willing to help with any requests. We have spoken to Danielle directly on several occasions regarding our arrangements and everything was handled exactly as promised. The maid service and grounds keeping staff should be commended for service to details. In the early morning the grounds staff place covers on most of the beach chairs for extra comfort and chairs are perfectly arranged each evening.
Condoâs â Unbelievable. Spectacular views. Professionally decorated with everything that you would need. Our first visit to Caribbean Club we had a total of 19 people in our group in which we obtained three ground level units. Units are huge, spotlessly clean and big enough of this large group. Kitchens had top of the line amenities, fully stocked with every gadget needed to cook in your unit, upscale appliances. Bedrooms were great with Flat screen TVâs and DVD players. On our second trip we had one unit on the 6th floor, everything was the same as our first trip; however being on a higher floor is truly an amazing experience, the balconies are exceptional with the view of the ocean and the infinity pool.
Beach â blue, calm, crystal clear water and white sand. Perfect for families with small children and older adults that donât want to get ruffed up by the waves. Caribbean Clubâs beach is large and you donât feel crowded or cramped, they even have enough shade with perfectly placed cabanas.
Restaurants â LUCA was exceptional and located in the Caribbean Club, even if you donât go for dinner you can go for drinks at the bar. Other restaurants within walking distance are Eldoardoâs, Copperfalls and Hemingwayâs. Also, within walking distance are the restaurants at the Ritz Carlton and a great bar/restaurant called Legendz/Eats.
Location â Best area on 7 mile beach, located across from the grocery, liquor store and restaurants, so you donât even need a car.
Because we love this island, we are already planning for June, 2009 for probably 14 people. The Caribbean Club is our place to stay and the only decision we need to make is the ground level units or higher up floor (such a decision to make). Either way, we wonât stay aware but the Caribbean Club.

Outstanding Accommodations at Caribbean Club
"We chose the Caribbean Club after seeing the website and speaking with Danielle, the property manager. Danielle was very pleasant to talk to and worked with us on a rate for our extended stay (we got married and spent our honeymoon on the island). Without ever having been to Grand Cayman Island before we were not sure what to expect from the Caribbean Club, but we were absolutely blown away by the property and our unit. It was aesthetically pleasing and well laid out, and no expense was spared on appliances and fixtures. Everything was top of the line and in brand new condition. The unit was very clean and neat. The maid staff came through daily and cleaned from top to bottom which is no small task in a three-bedroom, three-bathroom condominium.
Each unit has a spectacular view of the Caribbean and the property offers a private-feeling beach area as well as a beautiful infinity pool. We had considered other properties for our honeymoon such as the Ritz or the Westin, but after seeing their crowded and cramped beachfronts, we were even happier with our choice to stay at the Caribbean Club.
We can't wait to get back to Grand Cayman, and couldn't imagine staying at any other location other than the Caribbean Club. Thanks to Danielle and the Caribbean Club staff for an unforgettable experience."

Grand Cayman's Best Kept Secret - Will exceed all expectations...
"Out of selfishness, I hesitate to write this review. It would be nice to keep The Caribbean Club a secret for those who are "in the know." In fact, as a person who has consistently relied on other travelers' experiences on Tripadvisor, this is the first time I ever felt compelled to sit down to write a reviewâ¦
Quite simply, The Caribbean club exceeded all of our expectations. Rarely does it happen that a resort is more beautiful in person than in pictures. (With all of the stock photos resorts use and photo shop capabilities, hotels typically show pictures that distort accommodations and/or beach shots.) This is not the case with The Caribbean Club.
Here is how we found The Caribbean Club: We initially chose to vacation in the Cayman's because of the easy & direct flights from NYC, the pristine, beautiful beaches, the high quality of living on the island/low crime rate, quality medical care if one of the children were to get sick, etc. Once the island was selected, we set out to find the perfect location.
We considered renting private houses in order to have enough space, but didn't want to sacrifice the pampering of maid service and an on site restaurant. Next, we considered hotel rooms, but didn't want to feel crammed in and forced to sleep on the children's schedules. Ultimately, we settled on the world famous 7 Mile beach area because of it's beauty, central location, fun activities, dining options etc. After much research, we narrowed our search down to a few of the condo. options, or "specialty lodging" as some of the vacation sites call them.
Several names came up, The Caribbean Club, The Meridian, The Coral Stone Club, etc, but after looking at pictures, I had a really strong feeling about The Caribbean Club. The other resorts had some rocky coral that concerned me, or furnishings that seemed to depend on owners' tastes (or lack their of,) or a somewhat warn down look. Only The Caribbean Club looked meticulously maintained- decorated out of a designer showroom and yet family friendly - a hard balance to strike. We decided to go with our gut and were thrilled from the second we arrived.
Not only were the units enormous and professionally decorated with the high-end furnishings and appliances, they were spotless. The layout of the condo was perfect for traveling with adult couples or families. Each bedroom was a suite with its own bathroom and all of the balconies had incredible ocean views. In fact, the balconies are so enormous that they really feel like additional rooms!
Unlike many properties that we were considering, the resortâs pool is ocean side, which means that the kids were able to run back and forth from one to the other without feeling like we had to pack up each time. And, there is nothing like swimming in the pool and listening to the ocean!
We always had plenty of space so that it was like being in our own house (something that I thought about frequently as we walked down the beach to the Ritz and saw guests crammed in next to each other or heading down to the beach first thing in the morning to grab a "good spot" for the day.)
The Caribbean Club's luxury restaurant, LUCA, really sealed the deal for us. Not only is it some of the finest dining on the island, it's essentially poolside... a few steps from our unit. We were able to stroll in and get a couple drinks when we wanted or put the kids to bed with grandma and have a gourmet meal. In fact, one night, we all ate at LUCA and with the relaxed atmosphere, our kids were able to order their dinner and then walk down to the beach in between courses!
Some nights, we chose to eat at home which was equally enjoyable. The Caribbean Club is literally located across the street from a shopping plaza with a supermarket that rivals any high-end store back home in Connecticut. (They carried all major brands, organic items and had a full pharmacy - anther benefit of going to the Cayman Islands!)
In terms of Concierge service, Danielle, the manager, and her staff were willing to bend over backwards to meet our needs. At one point I needed a particular type of cable for work that I was doing on my laptop. Not only did the staff call around and help me locate the cable, they picked it up for me and delivered it to my room and checked in with me to make sure that I had everything that I needed.
The Caribbean Club really offers the best of all worlds. We had the convenience, space and privacy of a beautiful home, but the luxury service and dining options of a world-class resort. My only worry is that in sharing our experience, The Caribbean Club is no longer a secret. But, after all my years of reading Tripadvisor reviews, I felt compelled to share this information.
The Caribbean Club will exceed all of your expectations!"
