The all-suite Grand Caymanian Resort is the only resort situated on the North Sound and offers spectacular sunrise views of the Caribbean Sea. Our guest suites are the largest on island, ranging from 500 sq ft for our Studio Suites or 900 sq ft for our One Bedroom King Suites. All suites have a private patio or balcony with outdoor seating for two. We don’t charge hidden resort fees and offer complimentary Wi-Fi, area shuttle, pickleball courts, outdoor pool, beach, large freshwater pool, beach chairs, umbrellas, fitness room, market and coin operated laundry. Sneak off the beaten path, away from tourists, but still central to Grand Cayman’s best attractions.

Location & Transportation
How do I get to The Grand Caymanian Resort from the airport?
Guests can get to our property by car rental or taxi only. Due to government regulations, hotels on island are not permitted to offer airport shuttles to or from the airport. This is done to protect the local taxi trade. The government sets the Taxi fares, and you can get a taxi easily as you exit the airport. It’s around US$30 each way for three or less guests and the taxi ride is about 15-20 minutes. Please ensure you bring cash with you for your taxi ride as not all taxi drivers can accept payments with a card. Our guests receive special rates when booking their rental car with Dollar (use password holidayinndollar$). We recommend that you make your reservation for a car when you make your reservation with us. (Remember – we drive on the left in Cayman.)
Do you provide a local shuttle service?
Yes! Our complimentary area shuttle departs hourly from the hotel’s main entrance from 10 am to 5pm Monday through Saturday. The service stops at the Seven Mile Beach (public access), Foster's Grocery Store, Camana Bay, and George Town. Shuttle times are subject to change.
Is the water safe to drink?
Yes, the tap water across all three Cayman Islands is clean, wholesome and very much safe to drink! All of the tap water we get on-Island is desalinated seawater produced using reverse osmosis.
What is the voltage?
Cayman Islands operate on 120-volt electricity and is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. Which is the same as the USA and Canada. No adaptors are required.
