The Reef Resort: What a Very Special Place

     The days here on Grand Cayman were very special and fun, a big part of this was the enjoyable time spent at The Reef Resort at the east end of Grand Cayman.     This full service resort with it's beach facing suites make the mornings just so special while staying there.   My early rising habits serve me well in being able to see spectacular sunrises and beachfront scenery everywhere I go.     The views from the balcony of these suites are some of the best any where.

     The resort is located on the opposite end of the island from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown and the Seven Mile Beach, but is worth the 1/2 hour drive to get there.  Even having to go back and fourth to visit the Seven Fathoms Distillery, the drive is very relaxing and scenic.   After arriving on Grand Cayman we traveled in our rental car up Seven Mile Beach and visited Hell before heading out to the Resort for a great afternoon of sun, sand, fun and spirits.   The 1600 foot white sand beach is private and quiet, making for a perfect place to tan and relax.

     The resort was completely rebuilt after the devastation of Hurricane Ivan in 2004.   The hurricane closed the resort for
four months and it was back in business.  Today it is boasting 152 rooms that are just wonderful for the guest that really like to be in a very private and scenic environment.   Just to short of a stay, but I'm sure I will return again.    ;o)
