Our second port on our cruise in April was Grand Cayman. We decided to tour another resort and the Westin was more than willing to accommodate us.
2 of the 5 ships in port.
The Westin Grand Cayman is located on Grand Cayman’s gorgeous Seven Mile Beach. I was more focused on the tour and asking questions again, and only took one picture while we were at the Westin, but trust me when I say the property and beach here are beautiful! After we completed our tour, they were kind enough to let us spend the day on their beach, which was especially nice considering there were five total cruise ships in port that day and the public beach would have been extremely crowded. Guests at the Westin have access to beach chairs and umbrellas, but the chairs closest to the water go quickly, so best to get down to the beach early if you want the prime real estate.

When we arrived, we were taken on a tour around the resort and beach and we were very impressed. The Westin Grand Cayman offers multiple room categories with a variety of amenities from an island view room to the Governor’s Suite to accommodate all budgets. We toured an ocean front room and it was a really good size with updated furnishings.
The Westin also offers a full service spa, 7 restaurants and bars, meeting and event space, wedding packages, the largest freshwater pool in Grand Cayman, two hot tubs, a fitness studio, a Kids Club, and Red Sail Sports watersports center. The lobby and public areas are beautiful as they are in my opinion, but the Westin will be undergoing a renovation to the public areas of the resort beginning on 7/1/16. These renovations are expected to be complete by December and the resort will stay open during this time.
While we were touring the property, the events staff was busy preparing for a wedding that day and the setting was absolutely gorgeous for a destination wedding. We spent all of our day on the beach, but the pool is also a very good size with plenty of chairs around it. I can’t comment on the food and drinks here, as we spent most of our time in the water and never ordered anything, but the service was great. There were a few servers walking the beach the entire time we were there, making sure everyone had what they needed and all of the food and drinks we saw delivered to other guests looked delicious.
I have nothing but good things to say about our tour of this Westin property. The staff couldn’t have been any nicer, the property was modern with plenty to offer, and the location directly on Seven Mile Beach was beautiful. We will definitely be visiting again.
