Nice location. Elevator was real turnoff, needed cleaning. Okay place to stay if you don't want to spend arm and keg for luxury. Resort needs little TLC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst part of the trip"
We were very, very disappointed in this place. The majority of the hotel houses local people, some of which made us feel a little unsafe. A security guard was settling a domestic dispute, trying to take an angry, arguing woman by the arm as we checked in. It was very dirty and a small decorative pool was being "maintained" (though not currently), resulting […] in an algae filled pit with tools around while we were there. Inside the room, I found several long black hairs on the ground and two shorter dark hairs in the bed. Any surface touched often, like doorknobs, lightswitches, etc, looked filthy! The day bed was REALLY bad looking, with crumbs or something on it and it was very misshapen. I honestly got the feeling the room had been flooded by a hurricane and not fully cleaned afterward. The bed was comfortable. The bar was nice, as was the bartender, but front desk staff didn't make us feel like our questions or requests were welcome. She seemed quite annoyed by us. Maybe the worst part was at about 9 am,while we were in bed and unclothed, getting a knock on the door, with no identifying comment like "Housekeeping." We said "Don't come in!" not knowing who it was or anything, and the person proceeded to use his key to come in. I ran and slammed my body against the door, shutting it abruptly in his face. We yelled "Don't come in" twice, and he still was coming in. The person never identified himself, so we still don't know what that was all about. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would not spend my vacations there!"
i had a coakroch on my pillow! I guess there is nothing to add!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inexpensive for the area"
I read the reviews before I booked the hotel. The room had a kitchenette, had an ocean view a short walk from the beach, and a comfortable bed which is what we wanted. My biggest complaint was that the reviews were correct about the lack of hot water and water pressure in the shower, it was unbelievable so we complained and they changed the shower head […] but it did not solve the problem. The house keeping staff washed my dishes which I did not expect, so I have to say they went beyond their duty to keep us happy. If you want an inexpensive room for the week to sleep after a long day of activities and you dont mind a warm quick shower than you will get your moneys worth here. If you want to be pampered and spend more time in your room than I suggest spending the extra money and going elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We had a BAD experience!!!!"
This was an awful place to stay. The staff was rude when they even bothered to acknowledge your existence. This is our third year going to Grand Cayman and the first time we stayed on the West end of the island for a few days before going to Morritt's on the East end. We will never stay here again and would recommend the same for anyone else!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quirky, but decent and affordable"
If you are willing to get past some of the "rough edges" of Treasure Island, it is a good value and, in its own way, a hidden gem. I will say up front that I was not enchanted with first appearance of the open air lobby or the over-lived-in look from the outside of several rooms. BUT, the ocean view rooms have a balcony and you can sit and enjoy the […] mornings and the evenings with a very relaxing view past the decently maintained pools and courtyards to the ocean in the distance. Don't count on their beachfront - it is NOT good - VERY rocky and not comparable to brochures. But, it is a 4 or 5 minute drive to several nice sandy, blue public beaches a couple miles to the north. So, you get decent lodging, decent courtyard, decent poolside bar for evening drinks, and you can even have a nice family barbecue on their pits between the pools and the oceanfront. Unlike their website states - the internet in the rooms is WIRED, not WiFi. But, it works (albeit I had to power reset the router on a couple occasions). Overall, you get a place to stay that is walking distance to Georgetown, the grocery, many shops and restaurants and the couple grand you save on the rooms for putting up with the quirks can be spent on the other facets of your trip.

It was a good place to stay if you are on a budget, enjoy the pool and a not so nice beach. If you stay here and rent a car to go else where on the island, it's fine. Now a days, this hotel is rented out to people staying on the island for a few months at a time. Because of that, the "resort" aspect is almost non-existent. They never had clean towels […] to give us and even o ly changed ONE of the beds sheets on two occasions! Overall, it's not a nice place to stay. The staff could care less about customer service and the place is just dirty. We even saw a few cochroaches! Thankfully they weren't in our room! Oh yeah, and we didn't have hot water and our AC leaked a huge puddle all over the floor. We used our towels to mop up the mess so naturally, we were extra annoyed that the hotel ran out of clean towels not once but TWICE!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great for the money. Excellent location. Close to everything. Safe at all times. Hotel amenities were great. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fine for a night"
Had we planned to stay at Treasure Island for our entire vacation, we might not have been able to overlook its shortcomings as easily. As it was, it suited our needs for a place to spend a night before an island hop to Cayman Brac.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Resort? No, more like a dorm!"
Mattress had a definite low point in the middle and we rose the next day with extreme backaches. We requested a new mattress but were told that it was fine. After much discussion, finally an off site manager was called to approve an exchange. The major problem with the "resort" was that it was not a resort. It was really a short term rental hotel and […] thus was not treated as a daily rental hotel. Most of the rooms were rented by young adults, up to 4 to a room, who were working in the area.We had to beg for a coffee maker, "supplied" coffee, change of towels. It was supposed to have a full functioning kitchenette....there was one regular glass, one wine glass, barely any silverware or pots. One could make, at the most, a can of soup. There was no table to eat at on the balcony.Tv and Wi fi was not ever functioning correctly, on 2 of the 4 Days not at all. The "resort" amenities were totally lacking, no on site breakfast, no pool towel service, etc.Definitely not a resort! On one of the days the elevator broke and was not repaied till the following day. There was no handicapped access to the 5th floor, where we were staying, so we had to walk up and down the 5 floors, definitely a major problem with a partial ACL tear.

The hotel was not as well kept as I would have liked for how much I was paying for it. However, the staff was nice enough and the room was cleaned everyday.Genuine Expedia guest review
One of the night desk people were really helpful. Two during the day were completely unhelpful. The hotel was about 10 years past its lifespan. Lobby guest computer had a severely out dated web browser that didn't work with most web sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not for the rich and famous!"
This is the least expensive place to stay that we found on the island and it's our second visit. The grounds, pool, lobby, and beach front are immaculate. The rooms, not so much, but they are equipped with micro wave, fridge, stove, coffee pot, patio with chairs. I found the secret to having the room tidied: don't be there. If you are, they only ask […] what you need done, or do you want your beds made, or need towels? When not there, trash is emptied, beds made, towels replenished, dishes washed. I put soap on the tracks of the slider door that maintenance never came to fix, but they did find us hangers.It's a beautiful view from the ocean front patio. The grocery store off lobby is a nice addtion this year, and the nachos in the lobby bar are awesome. The price is affordable. The room is adequate.The staff upgraded the room to ocean view. It's on the sea........isn't that what you go for anyway! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Treasure Island Resort"
OK.... got there to think that we were in the condos that you can walk out on to the beach... NOOO... we were in the tenaments of CI. Dirty, dingy, unhelpful staff, didn't have our reservation until an hour after I gave them the information. Then they "found it" BUT we couldn't check in for another 4 hours.... not noted on the paperwork, OHHH but then […] amazingly they found a room, smelly, dirty, NO, NO, No. Left in the rain, suit case in hand looking for ANY ROOM, ANYWHERE!!!! Found something. Thank goodness. This place is used as a local tenament. Local people rent it out much cheaper than you if you go there and sign in.... DON'T GO AND DON'T SIGN IN. Expedia should NEVER even show this place on their website. Mary B from LI - Be AWARE Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Untimed at heart!"
Pay extra for the Ocean side as we stayed here twice and the second time we did ocean side (5th floor if you can). Basics of what is required for modern budget (Cayman) stay. Bus rides are easy in both directions from this location. Small store has basic food and drink needs. You will find plenty of options for food and drink in walking distance if […] you do not want to make use of the kitchenette. Snorkeling to the seven mile beach direction will bring visual pleasure as we spotted young parrot fish along the way. December currents are milder then March currents, but it is nothing that would prevent you from having fun. Sports (connected) bar has a great burger with fantastic mushrooms and the chicken mango sandwich is Great! If you think that every pillow needs a mint this is not the place for you. If you do not like extra daily charges (internet) and a surprise utility bill at the end of your stay then Treasure Island is! (ALL) Cayman beaches are open to the public even if you have to walk through the neighbors’ condo pool area ;) Have FUN! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't judge the book by its cover"
We were staying with a larger group of people at a time-share nearby and wanted a quiet night as a couple so we booked one night at Treasure Island as a "getaway." It turned out we couldn't wait to get away from this hotel. While the outside is nice and presentable, the hotel itself is very outdated and run down. While it was clean, it was hard to be […] sure as everything was completely worn out. The only updating that we noticed was the door to the room had a proximity sensor lock so you just had to wave the key by the lock to unlock it. Cool, but I would have rather had a bathtub that didn't look grimy and rusted out or fixtures that didn't look like they belonged in a dumpster or an elevator that smells like rot and mildew. When I read other people's comments I thought, "aw, it's not that bad" but I can tell you that if we had been staying at this property for the entire week we would have figured out a way to go somewhere else.

Do not stay here! Doubles as an apartment, staff was horrible, rooms were out dated, mattress was so old it dipped in the middle! Our bath towels were blue stripped pool towels we had NO washcloths. Staff was not helpful or friendly, hotel was unkept and dirty!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location/Cool Bars"
Treasure Island is at a great location and you can walk to a wide assortment of shops and restaurants on 7 mile beach. It is right in the middle of everything and that is a huge plus. The crowd is younger with many college age folks taking advantage of the several bars on the property and others nearby. This is not an upscale resort. The rooms meet […] the basic test of being clean. But if you want a high end mattress and pristine bathroom this probably is not your cup of tea. I'd definitely recommend for patrons who want to enjoy the night life, who need a cheap home base for shopping, enjoying great beaches, and snorkeling. For folks who want to be pampered and spoiled, you will not be thrilled with this property. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Treasure island not a jewel."
Mediocre hotel. Ants in bathroom. Old decor. Low water pressure. Lukewarm water. Headboards fell off wall. Bed was saggy and old. Maids did not come every day. Hotel is not on ocean or seven mile beach. Very disappointing stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"GREAT LOCATION. GOOD VALUE"
We had an ocean view room as we paid for. The reception personnel were friendly and attentive to our needs - providing an early check in and pool towels to use while we waited for room. Kitchen was missing toaster and utensils that would have made cooking easier, but I think guests have been hard on this place over the years. The garden, pool and room […] staff were constantly busy and construction was going on in the building so I think they are working on updates. Would have been nice to have internet in rooms instead of pool area. It was nice for a few nights stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We were quite disappointed in the hotel from previous visits there. The first thing noted was the elevator was quite dirty. Our room looked good and had a kitchenette with a fridge that was nice. The bed however was in horrible shape and with each movement you could feel springs poking through. The next AM I stopped by the front desk to tell them about […] the bed.. Not even complaining and pretty much got a roll of the eyes from the desk clerk...no apology or any other response.

"Four Weird Days"
Not as advertised. I've already reported our experience to Expedia. Was talking to them over the phone and the phone went dead. Internet in room did not work the 4 days we were there. Every day we reported it to the front desk and it was going to be taken care of. The first room we were given had at least a TWENTY-year old mattress with springs sticking […] out all over. The kitchenette was equipped by a miserly person.. We immediately asked for a change of room, but supposedly the place was full. We were a long, long, long walk from the elevator, and there were no helpers around. Finally, we got another room close to the elevator and the bed was okay. The pool had no shower and you came out of the pool all greasy from sun tan lotion. No security,in the hotel as anyone was allowed to go up to your room (4 floors) to deliver food from whichever restaurant you chose. We therefore had to carry our valuables WITH us wherever we went, including the pool. We are used to travelling 3-star, basic accommodation, but we would rate this place, right on the main boulevard as 1-star. Found out they are individual condos and each owner supplies whatever they choose, so there's no consistency in the quality, as we found out... I wouldn't go back and I'm glad we didn't bring family with us.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

My fiance' and I visited the Cayman Islands our first time this past week and had an absolute blast! It was everything we were looking for. Great location within walking of grocery store, kitchen setup to save on eating out, gorgeous views and water!!!, and it wasn't over crowded, which we enjoyed, even tho we are in our early 30's. Vacations are to […] be relaxable, and it was very much that! The staff was very nice, food was delicious, and the rooster and moving lizards made it very memorable!!!

"Treasure Island Disappointing-February 2012"
Arrived January 28th for a week long stay. This hotel appears to be more of an apartment building for the local working class. Although we found most of those folks to be fairly private, its not an ideal vacation resort. This property is screaming for a major renovation! I would think it would be a wise investment and would start with new patio doors, […] new bathroom fixtures and also new kitchen fixtures. Step two would be new painting inside and out. This property is for someone that can overlook the current low level of the properties interior and exterior lack of freshness age and level of cleanliness and bascially enjoy the amount of square footage in the room, balcony, pool area and convenient location. The pool area was very nice and a great place to get sun and swim. The sidewalk leads to the ocean beach, and you'll find a protected man made cove to swim and snorkel. I wouldn't stay again, but I enjoy this island. The other properties on this island all charge more. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The pool, beach and grounds were awesome. But the rooms were not comfortable or very clean. The rooms were small, and the bed linens were itchy, and kept falling off of the bed.

dirty, run down, under staffed and rude staff. I would not recommend this place to anyone - it was more like a flop house.Genuine Expedia guest review
My stay at Treasure Island was Ok . The hotel and room was satisfactory. The room was clean and comfy, nothing fancy, just a decent room, not much of veiw from balcony, just a parking lot below. The real dissapointment is the area nightlife and bars at the hotel. The bars at the hotel close too early ! 1 AM on a friday night . 12 AM on a saturday night. […] In my opinion this is ridulous. I thought that island was very boring and really would much rather have traveled to Vegas to spend my hard earned money. Everything is so outrageously expensive, and the restaurants are very stingy with portions. Maybe , I went to wrong places. I will never return to Cayman. I work hard for my money, and want my moneys worth when I spend it, I am not a cheapskate, just want the most bang for my buck. I should have went to Vegas, I am still kicking myself !

"comfortable & affordabe"
As a person on a budget, I was looking for something comfortable. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room itself and the friendly cleaning lady who wanted to give me new towels every day. In addition, it was very Hot while I was there, but the Air-Conditioning was excellent as well. Since food prices are very high on the Cayman Islands, […] I greatly appreciated the kitchenette so I was able to cook on the electric stove several times. In addition, the mini refrigerator also came in handy, as my drinks were kept cold. I was also able to request a toaster and coffee maker without any additional charges. Overall, the place was very well maintained including the pool, whirlpool, and access to the beach. On a daily basis in the morning time, the pools and surrounding areas were being cleaned. Of importance, was the mini market in the lobby, where I was also able to buy cereal, some snacks, and coffee.Even though I wanted more water pressure in the shower, the hot water was always available in the morning time. Since I was on vacation and wanted peace and quiet, the resort was perfect for me. In conclusion, I would definately recommend this resort to others. It was very affordable and clean. In the future, I will take other family members to this resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was a little scared of what I would find at Treasure Island, but i was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. I was there for a week with my grilfriends and although the room wasnt the greatest of rooms and the beds weren't the greatest, the room was simple and exactly what we needed. We spent most of our days on the private beautiful beach or laying […] by the nice pool. The english woman at the front desk was SUPER helpful and recommended a lot of really great places to eat, etc. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel then dont stay here but if you want a place to leave your suitcases while you roam around the island and come back to sleep at night then this is the perfect fit.

This is a good property if you are in your twenties and looking to party. Otherwise, it's a cheap motel that doesn't have much going for it.

is good and is closed to beaches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our first time to the Cayman Islands. We loved the island but not our hotel. To start...the elevators had a very bad odor(very musty, moldy smell). Our room was okay, the beds were tolerable, our ocean view was a very partial ocean view. We never had hot water, only luke warm if you were lucky. Maid service was a little lacking, we only got […] clean towels about every other day and never got wash clothes. They also never swept and when you go to the beach everyday you bring alot of sand with you. The water at the hotel was just plain aweful!! We could not drink anything made with water including the ice anywhere on the resort. The bar was a cool idea but it also was the local hangout and the bartenders only serviced the locals. They did not have much to do with tourists. Alot of locals lived there so it seemed to be more locals there than tourists. The beachfront was dissapointing, Grand Cayman has some beautiful beachfront but it isn't here. I do have to commend them for their efforts though, they did try to make a decent beach but it's too rocky at this section of the beach. If you go further down towards the Westin, the beach is awesome!!! I would recommend spending the money to stay at the Westin or The Ritz, They have awesome beachfront there and seem to be really nice hotels. For the money, I believe you could find a better place.
