My husband and I are divers and have been to Grand Cayman Island 11 times in the last 20 years. Once we found Eldemire's we don't want to stay anywhere else! We have stayed 9 times, in June we stayed 10 nights! We always go back because we know we will receive a clean apartment or room off the beaten...

Dear Sir, I am unable to find where someone came and stayed only 2 nights as our minimum booking period is 3 nights. Maybe you stayed somewhere else and not with us? If perchance you did stay, we do not recollect any complaints made to us by you and we are always very strong in encouraging our guests, when they...

Stayed at guest house for 4 nights in April. Room was comfy and quiet. A little dated but clean and nice. Staff friendly and very welcoming. Bit of a walk to town if u have no car!! And taxis can work out expensive!! Would stay again if I hired a car. Thanks for a lovely stay.

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of January while we were in Grand Cayman, we stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay here! It was a cozy little place, with great location to downtown. We had a rental car, which I would suggest as the side walks are pretty narrow (if even there) on the...

Hi We appreciate your kind and honest review about Eldemire's and so happy that you had a good experience staying with us.. So sorry about the minimum amount of TV channels that you saw. This does occur sometimes but we have no control over it as it is the fault of our Cable Company. Wish we could do something but...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Eldemire's Inn for 7 days this January, and had a lovely time. As others in the comments say, this is not a place for the mindless tourists who need the comforts of a hotel and the hand-holding of tour managers and all-inclusive packages. This guesthouse is purely a home-base, out of which you organize...

Dear former guest.

If you're the kind of traveler who stays in name-brand hotel chains, has never entered a grocery store in another country, and is used to 5 star accommodation, then Eldemire's Tropical Inn is not for you.

Overall it felt like a quiet little private retreat with just a hint of home. The inn is much larger than it appears but you can't really tell because most of the foliage gives many of the unit entrances a feel of secluded privacy when you come and go. We had a late evening arrival so check in for weary...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What words describe Eldemire's best? Friendly, Informal, Simple, Charming, Affordable, Peaceful. Our simple little "Caribbean style" guest house, offers an ambiance of informality and friendliness, and is perfect for "free-spirited" travelers who just want a clean, nice, down to earth place, closely situated to everything. And, not have to spend the kind of money that they would have to, at a big resort. Of course the big resorts have lots of amenities, clean, comfortable, air-conditioned rooms to sleep in, as generally speaking, visitors go exploring and/or diving all day long. So you save lots of $$$$ when you stay with us!!! In the 38 years of being in the tourism accommodation sector, we can truthfully say that most of our guests are those who just like a charming and simple alternative to the bigger, busier, expensive hotels. Instead they would rather spend their vacation dollars on enjoying our beautiful beaches, diving, snorkeling, good restaurants, varied excursions, etc. And a rental car. Our place will feel to you like a "home away from home" where you can relax and feel at home! In 1977, Tootie's Caymanian parents, opened up rooms in their large home (now known as Eldemire's Tropical Island Inn) to visitors coming to Grand Cayman for vacation, or to conduct business. Then in 2000, Tootie and her family took over the business and made a lot of changes which included colorful decor, furnishings, etc. Then a pool and large deck were built and lush tropical vegetation and colorful tropical plants and banana trees were placed all around the pool. So when you sit back and relax by the pool, you experience an authentic peaceful tropical aura. Our location is on the west side of the island, across the road from the ocean, and ten minutes drive from Owen Roberts Airport and famous 7 Mile Beach. Within a short walk is a beautiful white sand beach, the island's best art/craft shop, 2 fabulous oceanfront restaurants, a fitness center, 3 Dive centers, Cathy Church Underwater Photo Center, and Georgetown with lots of shops, restaurants, the Museum, and Duty Free shopping. Our property consists of 4 private 2nd level rooms with private bathrooms, and a large shared kitchen and relaxing lounge downstairs. The 2 comfortable self-contained one bedroom suites have their own private kitchens, lounges and garden entrances. Two Studio Suites have their own private kitchenettes. Our amenities? All rooms and suites are air-conditioned, have private bathrooms with towels and bathroom products, complimentary tea and coffee, Cable TV, FREE WIFI and free on-site parking with security lighting. So, in essence, what we offer is a peaceful, quiet, charming, cheap, "Island style" Guest House, close to everything. A real little "Tropical Oasis". ... more   less
