I stayed at Eldemires (for the third time) and loved it. My room was clean, the AC powerful, the bed comfortable, the kitchen had everything I needed to cook and bake, and I didn’t see one bug the whole time, which is unusual for the Caribbean. (I think the chickens ate them all. Lol).
Eldemires is extra special for me because I used to live in Cayman and Tootie makes you feel like you’ve come “home” and are staying with family.
Do the big pricey chain hotels include a laundry room and a huge fully equipped kitchen at your disposal? No. Will you have their pool all to yourselves nearly every time you go for a dip? Nope. Are the big hotel owners living thirty feet from your room and do they take the time to get to know you and make sure you have everything you need? Nope. Are they situated a ten minute walk to all the restaurants and shopping in town, and a five minute walk to the prettiest cove beach on the island? No, but Eldemires is all those things.
Plus, you can get a feel for the real Cayman, get to know the locals and experience their warm hospitality.

GUEST REVIEW on Trip Advisor March 2012
” My sister, her 10 year old daughter and I had an absolutely marvelous vacation last month in Grand Cayman. We introduced little Lexa to the undersea world- snorkeled at Smith Cove (it was magical), swam with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove, fed the Stingrays, watched sunset on the beach, and just had a fabulous, relaxing time. Eldemire’s Tropical Island Inn is the perfect setting for those who want a local, cozy, quaint abode, and definitely not the Ritz Carlton prices. Tootie and Elena were wonderful hosts, and they make you feel right at home. We had a suite complete with a kitchen, so we could save money and prepare most of our meals. I would recommend walking 10 minutes to Smith Cove for snorkeling, and walking to Sunset House for lunch or dinner, especially at sunset. Eldemire’s is for travelers on a budget who enjoy local ambiance. I would highly recommend it.”
