How to Get There
Living up to the nameplate... the Westin does not disappoint! I read some reviews before coming and to tell the truth I was a little worried - they were ALL wrong!
Hotel is clean, well appointed, rooms are beautiful, staff all lovely!
Set in 7 mile beach the clear turquoise water surrounds you!! The vibe is relaxed and not pretentious at all, allowing you to “just be”!
The spa is top rate! Had a pedicure and definitely going to book another treatment before we leave.
Water sports right here on beach with everything you could want!
Great activities and daily offerings, swim up bar in pool, amazing floats anchored just off shore as a floating bed for sunning or hanging out!
We booked the Westin for its excellent location, we prefer more intimate hotels but Grand Cayman sadly doesn't seem to have any.
On arrival at about 6pm we were surprised by the amount of people and noise in the reception area. It felt more like a city hotel than a beach resort. Check-in was fairly quick, but there was no welcome drink!
Our room was 577, a partial sea view room on the north side of the building and on the top floor. The room was large, pleasant, very clean and there was a small balcony overlooking the Governor's Residence next to the hotel. There was a reasonable view of the beach too. The bed was very comfy and there was plenty of storage space, yet only six hangers- not enough for a full week for two people. The safe was on the top shelf of the wardrobe making it very difficult for me to use without a chair. There was a large TV with some international channels, an alarm clock, a coffee maker (that only made one cup at a time), small fridge, selection of coffee, tea (just one herbal tea bag), and disposable cups - which I detest. There was no reading matter.
The bathroom had a walk-in shower with different shower heads, the sink was huge (I could almost have a bath in it) yet there was hardly any space for toiletries! There were plenty of fresh towels and the amenities were always replenished. The WC was separate. The lighting was good but there was no window. There was nowhere to dry wet swimwear.
On arrival we switched off the air con and ceiling fan as the temperature wasn't too high and we are used to a sub tropical climate. However once in bed we noticed a whining noise, which at first we thought was the fridge but after much investigation we realised the noise seemed to be coming from the roof. We suspect that the ac compressors (perhaps for the entire hotel) were close by. It wasn't too loud but if you awoke in the middle of the night you could hear it!
On our first evening after quickly unpacking we went to get dinner. We tried the Beach House as we had already checked the menu. There seemed to be lots of people waiting, all a bit chaotic and people seemed to be walking around with plates from the buffet at Ferdinands. We asked if we could get a table, only to be told to come back in at least an hour. I explained that we had just arrived, after travelling for more than twelve hours, and with a five hour time difference. But no, so we just had to walk away. Desperate and very tired we saw the Tortuga Grill and managed to get a table there, only after being asked four times for our room number and names! We ordered the fish tacos with a side serving of plantain chips and a cocktail. Everything arrived quickly, however the cocktails were served in disposable plastic glasses, the cutlery was plastic and to top it all up the plantain was industrial and in a bag! It all felt like a cheap fast food outlet, what a terrible start to our holiday!
Breakfast at Ferdinands was good, we tried the buffet a couple of times but the á la carte was better. We did find a few things missing on the buffet, no soy yogurts, no margerine, no rye bread....The staff were great, especially the guy from Sri Lanka. The smoothies were delicious, the smoked salmon very good too. We also tried caribbean dishes like the saltfish and the coucou.
We had coffee once at the Cayman Coffee, however it was served in disposable cups.
We had dinner twice at the Beach House and it was all exquisite. We passed on starters but tried the desserts. The fish dishes were cooked to perfection and well-presented. The waiter from New Zealand and the indian guy were adorable. We sat outside and had no problems with insect bites!
We ate at the Sunshine Grill across the road, twice for dinner and twice for lunch. It was very relaxed and the food excellent. Great staff too.
The swimming pool was alright, nothing special. It wasn't nice to see the ground floor room patios full of wet clothes and stuff. The beach was wonderful and we always managed to get a lounger. The sea was perfect for swimming. It did annoy me seeing groups of guests drinking in the sea and being very noisy. The smell of cigar smoke very unpleasant, if this is a non-smoking hotel it should be enforced even on the beach if that person is on a Westin lounger. There was also a cigar smoker on the fourth floor, the balcony was to the left of our room but the smell put us off using our balcony.
Straight across the road from the hotel there are three restaurants, we tried the Japanese, not bad. There is also a shop that sells souvenirs, sweets, water etc.
We booked a full day taxi excursion around the east coast through the hotel and a snorkelling trip. Both excellent. The british lady at the Red Sail desk was very informative and welcoming. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel and it is easy to go into the capital or to the Turtle centre.
I do think that the hotel should look at changing its policy on disposables. Rather than giving two bottles of water per room why not give a reusable bottle at the start of the stay and have water fountains to refill them. Ceramic mugs would also be nice in the rooms. The most depressing thing I saw whilst snorkelling off the beach was several disposable glasses with the Westin logo on the seabed!
I would not go back to the hotel. I appreciate a hotel that takes better care, on arrival we should have been asked about dinner reservations, I think that at least once during the stay we should have been asked if everything was OK. On our departure day they did not allow us to keep the room for a couple of extra hours. I also found it very annoying being constantly asked room number and name. The hotel is in a wonderful location on a beautiful island and has some great staff but it could be improved with greater guest attention and should be much more ecological.
Having just returned from another visit to the magnificent & beautiful Westin-Cayman, I must congratulate this property and all its people for a marvelous experience -- gorgeous beach, magnificent updated hotel, and as always, wonderful staff -- welcoming, professional, and helpful at all times to all guests. No other hotel has ever made me feel as comfortable; the Westin-Cayman is like coming home to family. I look forward to my next trip to the Westin-Cayman.
This place is trying to be som thing for everyone and as a result is has failed some. The beach is cluttered with too many private huts and blocks the view. My husband says they should call it it RED SAIL HOTEL, the watersports are an overdo, the catamaran takes up the prime center beach for hours at the prime time of the day. Too much of everything happening on this beach. Restaurant needs to be redone. Cut back on the stuff on the beach, after all we are there for the beach not 5o rent. A jet ski. Just too crowded and loaded with kids running and screaming; we had trouble sitting at the tiki at the pool just trying to talk above the loud kids screams! This used to be a great place, but we will book the Ritz next time. The room renovation is not that exciting.
We are platinum with SPG 100 nights per year - our upgraded room is on the North side of the building and for the third time this stay the very loud music after midnight. The front desk doesn’t have a manager onsite, but staff told me it’s a Christmas party and they have a contract until 1am. Nothing we can do for you - but we are VERY SORRY! Absolutely terrible customer service!
