We stayed in the pool side apartment and it was nice. The apartment was large and well equipped. Internet was good too. The pool was refreshing after a full day of sightseeing. Staff were very helpful any time we had a request. It is a little bit away from traveling sights, so you will need a rental car to go...

Visited Eldemire's for a week and enjoyed our stay there. A pretty quick drive from the airport. It's a little off the beaten path, but GPS was spot on for getting us there. Upon arrival, there was a phone by the door with a list of numbers to call for someone to come get us settled. The inn had island...

This is our third or fourth time staying at Tooties. It gets better and better each time we arrive! What we love about Eldemires is how they retain the Caribbean look and feel. However, the modern conveniences are available, like wifi and full kitchens. Our apartment is perfect (#7). We have a huge king size bed with pretty blankets. The...

We arrived late on a Tuesday night, and after several wrong turns on dark roads encountered their very helpful signage indicating we finally found the inn.

Dear Guest, Thanks so much for your lovely review and we are so elated that you had a wonderful stay with us and enjoyed our place and what our island has to offer.

Thank you to Elana, Tootie and Bob for making us feel like we were at home all week. The room was perfect for a young couple looking to travel on a budget. The shared kitchen helped a LOT, and we loved all of the animals running around (especially the cats!). You were all so welcoming and helpful whenever we needed...

This is a quiet place except for the roosters LOL. Elena was always available and helpful if we needed anything. This is not a high end resort if that's what you are looking for but it is very cozy. Place does need some maintenance but it worked quite well for our stay there.

The Eldemire Tropical Inn is a great place to stay in George Town. We had a full apartment which is always a bonus, especially in pricey Grand Cayman. The inn is clean, with free Wi-Fi and parking. It is a little tricky to find but once found, it's a great spot. About a 5 min drive from downtown George Town....

This was a wonderful place to stay in a neighborhood area. Ironically the lowest price place on the island, I was told. It was great, I had free parking right in front, a cute little swimming pool, suit optional at night. I loved my room, great A/C, king bed, wonderful large bathroom with two huge windows, great vanity. The room...

We really enjoyed our stay with you, and will definitely visit again. The privacy was amazing, and bob is very knowledgable with that perfect diving spot. Thanks for the use of the shop vac, it helped me avoid the rental fee.

Nice people nice room very good service. Lovely guests and place. Please. If staying at Eldemire the rental car is a must. Do not feed the chicken in any case - otherwise they will join you for breakfast :-) All the other aspects - we will gladly come back. Enjoy your stay and we give 5 points!

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
