We stayed at the sunshine suites for 5 days. We chose this hotel based on our budget.
We had a studio king room, which was very clean. The room had a full-size refrigerator with microwave, stove top, toaster, coffee maker, and plates and utensils. Our bed was made every day, and we were also given fresh towels. The only thing I did not like about the room is that there was no in-room safe.
The grounds of sunshine suites were kept very nice. They have a pool with lounge chairs and tables. They also have chairs scattered throughout the resort. Parking was free. There was no elevator to get to the second-floor rooms. Staff is friendly; one of the guys recommended me the cozumel trikes tours for my family.
The use of this property was a fantastic perk! It was located directly across the street and was about a 5-minute walk. At the Westin, you can use everything as if it was your own hotel. You can even charge food and drinks to your room in the sunshine. The Westin has a pool with swim up bar and two hot tubs. Westin has activities every night. One night they had trivia and adj. Another night they had a movie and popcorn on the beach. Another night they had a bonfire.
The tacos at the sunshine grill were AMAZING. They provide breakfast included with your stay which isn’t at the restaurant but a small building next
To it. They had fresh fruit, pancakes, hard-boiled eggs, toast, beef patties, hot and cold cereal. At the Westin, they have happy hour, half off mixed drinks and buy one get one free beer from 5-7pm. I only ate appetizers at the Westin which were anywhere from $10-$15 CI. There are a few places to eat on your walk to the Westin. Eats Cafe, Legends sports bar and grill, a sushi place, and peach wave frozen yogurt. There is also a liquor store. We ate off property most days, heritage kitchen and coconut joes were our favorites.
We rented a car while staying here and were able to drive about 9 miles down the beach to a public beach called Spotts. Here you will find sea turtles. This was better than paying to go to the turtle farm. We also did the excursion to stingray city with starfish island. I actually found the activity on trip advisor, and it was $54 a person. They picked us up and dropped us off to and from our resort. On the boat, they had soda, juice, and water for us. They also had someone taking pictures for purchase. The two guys running the ship were fun and knowledgeable.
I would highly recommend sunshine suites resorts to anyone who wants to travel to grand cayman on a budget.
