Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Cayman Islands!

Discovered by accident in 1503, Christopher Columbus was on his fourth and final new world voyage and heading from Panama to Hispaniola, when steered off course by strong winds to sight Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. He named the two small islands -- so full of tortoises that they looked like rocks -- Las Tortugas (The Turtles). During the next 150 years, the islands including Grand Cayman went through several name changes, hosting various ships as sailors took on fresh water and stocked up on turtle meat. Buccaneers including Sir Francis Drake had noted large lizards and crocodiles on these islands during the 1500's to 1700's, and one name, Caymanas, came from a Carib word for crocodiles. Records indicate Cayman Brac and Little Cayman were settled before Grand Cayman, although these settlements didn't last long, thanks to Spanish pirates. In 1655, the islands came under British control when Oliver Cromwell's army captured Jamaica from the Spanish. The Caymans officially became a British territory with the 1670 signing of the Treaty of Madrid, when Spain gave Britain "all those lands, islands, colonies and places whatsoever situated in the West Indies." An 1802 census shows 933 islanders, with 545 as slaves. Old-timers still talk about the hurricane of 1932, killing 70 and washing many homes out to sea. Now island focus is on tourism, attracting well over a million visitors each year. More than 100 restaurants dot the Cayman Islands from elegant dining establishments to small diners. Along with conch, lobster and shrimp, Caymanian cuisine utilizes stewed turtle, oxtail, ackee and codfish. Dessert menus typically feature rum cake or cassava cake. Attractions include the Botanic Park, Mastic Trail, National Museum, Stingray City, and Turtle Farm, along with submarine excursions, cave exploration, shark feeding and Cardinal D's Park zoo. Water sports are big, from snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing, sailing, and windsurfing to scuba diving amid undersea treasures. From comparative seclusion on Grand Cayman's east and north coasts to the busier Seven Mile Beach area, lodging options range from guest houses to fine hotels.
