Available rooms booked up for Christmas

There are 536 rooms in licensed accommodations available to tourists in Grand Cayman for the holidays and these are pretty much fully booked for the Christmas period.

A breakdown given by the Department of Tourism shows that the following properties within the hotel and condominium/apartments sector are operating the following number of rooms for stay-over tourists: Courtyard Marriott, 170; Westin Casuarina, 271; Hyatt Beach Suites, 53; Avalon Condominiums, 18; Cobalt Coast Resort, 15; Jeff’s Private Guest House, 2; Turtle Nest Inn, 7.

These seven accommodations, which have been approved by the Hotels Licensing Board, join the 20 licensed accommodation properties on Cayman Brac and three on Little Cayman. The licensed premises have been formally recognised by authorities as being suitable accommodations for tourists. It is expected that more properties in Grand Cayman will come on stream as licensed shortly.

In Grand Cayman there is a pretty good choice of restaurants with over 90 to choose from that have been inspected and approved by DoT. Along with this there are 16 attractions, which are: Cayman Islands National Museum Shop, Fort George, Hero’s Square, Pure Art Gallery, Quincentennial Celebration Park, Tortuga Rum Cake Factory (North Sound Road), Governor’s Mansion, Hell, Old Homestead, Stingray City, Tortuga Rum Cake Factory (Turtle Farm), Turtle Farm, Guard House, Pedro St. James Gift Shop, Wreck of the Ten Sails.
