Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman

If you're looking for either a beach resort with a full range of amenities or a business hotel with plenty of free time options, this place fits the bill. This longtime favorite underwent an expansion a few years ago to offer rooms directly on Seven Mile Beach and to increase its watersports and recreational facilities.

The Hyatt has the atmosphere of a country club with the amenities of an island resort. The hotel's amenities flow out from a great main house, which is presently closed due to damage from Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The grounds are dotted with royal palms and ponds are filled with colorful koi. There's a freeform swimming pool, complete with bridges and pool bar. Blocks of guest rooms circle this central area; Britannia Villas lie beyond, adjacent to the golf course. Shuttle service is available from the main house to the villas and spa.

Families make up a growing portion of the hotel's business, thanks to the Camp Hyatt program which features villa accommodations with kitchen facilities and the many recreational options. Golfers appreciate the Britannia Golf Course. The older portion of the resort overlooks the course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, or the private marina. (Note: At the present time, the original part of the Hyatt remains closed due to damage from Hurricane Ivan. The beachfront side of the property is open.)

During our last visit to the Hyatt we stayed at the beachfront addition. A $15 million expansion added these 53 beachfront suites on Seven Mile Beach. These suites have a separate living room that includes a dining area, wet bar, work station with two phone lines, and upgraded amenities. All suites have sea views, and these rooms are served by a dedicated concierge. The complex is highlighted by a landscaped pool complex with bronze sea turtle sculptures, waterfalls, and three freshwater pools with mosaic tile designs of stingrays and other marine life.

Red Sail offers a range of watersports, including catamaran cruises on two 65-foot vessels for dinner sails, cocktail cruises, and luncheon snorkel excursions to Stingray City. Dive boats offer one- and two-tank trips as well as night dives. Sea kayaking, waverunners, water-skiing, parasailing, and underwater photography are also available as well as deep-sea, bone, and reef fishing.

The Hyatt runs a ferry to Rum Point, on the tip of the East End. (Note: At the present time, the ferry to Rum Point is stopped due to Hurricane Ivan. Check with the hotel before making your plans.)
