Rated 5 out of 5 by Infinity Best choice for Seven Mile Island
I can't say enough about our great 5 night stay. As a Platinum member, despite the normal resort exceptions, we received multiple benefits (buffet breakfast free, room upgrade, late check out). I could tell that they have done many upgrades to the hotel and it was in excellent shape. Beach and pool area were superb with great service. Music each eventing outside was so relaxing. Only negative was the internet outages which ocurred often. I guess that is why they don't charge for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie1972 Most beautiful beachfront on Seven Mile Beach
The Westin - is Heavenly! It truly provides the most beautiful beachfront property along Seven Mile Beach. Enjoy their outstanding pool, Jacuzzi s, cabana bar ... then meander along the beach into aqua blue sea! Whether it's a jet ski rental or simply an umbrella covered chaise lounge .... they have it all! Don't miss their poolside lunch grille- delish! I recommend the amazing mahi-mahi fish tacos. After a relaxing & fun "day at da beach" you'll sleep well in their heavenly bed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebbieJeffBR Can't say enough about the incredible staff!
To follow the last review....September IS the time to go! Great rates and the whole place to yourself but what makes it special is the staff. Everyone goes out of their way to get to know you and make you feel like you are the only one there! My wife and I were here celebrating out 50th birthdays this year and we could have not asked for a better vacation. The first time we ever left a property feeling like we really are going to miss the staff! Kudos and we will be back soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fredly Checkin Delays
Hotel facility very pretty, but well overpriced for room condition.Hotel is very busy and rooms show wear and tear of traffic.
Check in crowds due to flights landing at same time.Room not ready at 4:00PM asked to wait!! Very bad!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dank14 Great beach, but overall not good value for money
Bed was far from heavenly and was very uncomfortable. Air conditioning and toilet had problems even though we were moved to a different room. Staff (particularly Hadi and Angelica) were outstanding and responsive to our needs- we required a quiet part of the hotel. Beach was outstanding (best on island). Food was good- not great. Overall, not good value for large amount of money charged.

Rated 3 out of 5 by amp123 Not Sure
If it we not for the staff outside of the checkin counter I would tell people not to stay, we own Westin properties, and were told when I booked that upgrades were pretty usual. It was my birthday, we had payed extra for a view of the ocean and got a view of the pool. If I had not mentioned that we were gold members they would not have offered us the points or drink that you usually get upon check in or the late check out.
Had to get house keeping in to make the tub drain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katie12 Good hotel
The Westin is a good hotel- great for an easy, comfortable Carribean vacation.
However, it has nowhere near the service of the Ritz next door. The staff is fine, they just dont go out of their way to be helpful. The towel hut guys will fight with you about how many towels you want, service express forgets the shampoo you called about an hour ago, etc. These are little items but its just not the amazing service experience of the hotel next door.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dhaval Dont expect to get WESTIN Kind of Service
Our stay was nothing more than Ordinary despite being a SPG Member. No Recognition was given to us at all. I would not have wrote this review if i was given a simple Appology at the Front desk, the night before i checked out.
1) MY Kids woke up to this Scary and loud TV Auto On program at 8 am. We had requested that it be fixed but it wasn't. So the night before i stopped by the desk to make sure it was fixed. I talked to Ms. Pury, her response was short and simple. "Theres nothing i could do. you shoudl talk tot he manager. Thats It". We had a good 5-10 minute conversation and i didnt hear an apologies through out our conversation. I left the desk asking her to have the GM Ms. Sandar contact me upon her arrival next day at 8 am. I have still to hear from her.!!!
Another bad experience was Room service. We had ordered some food and despite two calls to them and over 45 minutes it was still not at the door. Upon asking to cancel it i was told i cannot cancel it.!!! Really.
One night the Engineer shows up randomly to my door asking me if i need to fix the Toilet.!!! I had not requested any engineering services at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lavatorylady Great Long Weekend
I spent 3 nights at the Westin and was very pleased with my stay. My room was clean, bright and nicely decorated. It was situated right across from the swim up bar and while there was music, it wasn't too loud and was off by a decent hour. I tried three restaurants and they were all great! My favorite was Casa Havana. The restaurant staff was great, but the desk, towel and cleaning crew left a bit to be desired. The woman at the desk seemed to think the guests were annoying her and the towel guy had the same attitude. The cleaning people never got to my room the last morning of my stay despite being on the floor all day. Perhaps less chit chatting to each other and on their cells would cause them to be more productive. I think they need a bit more supervision. Otherwise, I would stay again and I would suggest it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by marcus2013 Our trip experience
our trip was a very pleasant experience. the hotel has just been remodeled and in great shape. the size of the hotel was a key feature, smaller, casual and very easy to use features.
the staff was always kind and smiling. as we talked to several of them, they had been working at the hotel for years. this speaks to management and committment.
all of the meals and sevice was very good and attentive.. beach was fantastic.
we would recommend to everyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CopperP Quite disappointed
We love the Westin let me first say. Stayed at others while traveling in the States. Ocean front room was blocked by a huge bush. We did get moved but room had no ammenities. No towels, no refill of coffee...etc. Had to ask for wash cloths for two hours. The staff was friendly I will admit. Also we were charged for drinks to our room that we did not order. Anyone can use your room # to order. Had a hard time getting money refunded. Sad time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sher62 Very disappointed
This was my third time staying at the Westin. Happy in the past. When I made the reservation I asked for 2 double beds as there was 3 to the room. At check in I was told the hotel was full so we got a king bed and roll away bed at no extra charge.When the bed was brought to the room the maid said we would have to set it up ourself. No apology. The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall and the handle to the hot water fell off. The toilet paper holder was finally fixed but the hot water handle was not. At check out bill had a daily accomodation charge of $258 and I had already paid the bill. Other family members was staying in another room and their bill had the extra charge as well. The bill was corrected but would it have been if we had not questioned it. I am a Starwood member. Will go back to the Cayman Islands but will never stay at the Westin again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Isablue Nice Hotel
Very nice hotel. My only "complaint" would be with the maid service. I found bottle caps and a hair accessory under the bed upon arrival and during out stay I felt like the towels and cleaners (soap, shampoo, conditioner) were "rationed". It really wasn't that big a deal, but at over $300 per night this should not happen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lalspg Needs some work
The rooms need some work. The 'sweet sleeper' we got was lopsided. and sunken in. The sheets were rough to the touch.
After picking up a small breakfast at the coffee shop, we went to sit by the pool to have breakfast at about 9 am and there were half smoked cigars and cigarettes sitting on ledges and the ground. Clearly they had been left the night before but the fact that they were still there at 9 am was upsetting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BC1000 Great beach - Awful rooms
I stayed at the hotel in November 2013 with my wife and toddler son. The positives: The beach and pool are beautifully maintained, service at the pool and beach is good, as is the food. The negatives: Our hotel rooms (we had two connecting rooms), were awful. The carpeting was damp in some places, the room smelled musty, the wi-fi signal was available in our rooms about 1/3 of the time, the phone kept breaking, and there is virtually no in-room enterainment, such as movies on demand (a feature that would have been nice for us because our son goes to sleep at 8pm, which tethered us to our room from that time on). We had "Island view" rooms, which truly have no view at all, except of the parking lot and busy road. Despite having two rooms, neither had a balcony. We would not stay at this hotel again, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone who expects to spend any time at all in their hotel room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobby542 Great Service; Great Experience
Our experience was wonderful. There were about 35 of us who were staying at the hotel attending a family wedding on the island. Not one person in the party had a complaint, and with our family that is AMAZING! The renovations made over the last 12-18 months were outstanding. The property was beautiful. The hotel lobby was a place we all enjoyed gathering at night; the rooms were very "fresh" and very comfortable; the pool and beach is fantastic and the service was very special responding quickly to our food and drink needs. A special shout out to the catering staff, who took extra special care of us for our rehearsal dinner. Rain got in the way .. they set up and broke down the food and tables twice as the rain before the event complicated things. In the end, our dinner on the beach was a real highlight of the trip. Thanks Andres and your team for doing an outstanding job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HelenMarie This hotel is top notch.
We love returning to the Westin on Grand Cayman. Its a wonderful place for families to enjoy themselves. This was our third stay with them. The staff is so welcoming and friendly. The rooms are generous in size, beautifully appointed and have large marble bathrooms. The food is excellent, with both traditional and creative offerings, and beautifully served. We love the atmosphere. It's both festive and relaxing.

We love this resort and have been coming back for years. Always have difficulty getting an answer regarding requests for early/late checkin. Also not happy about $60 a day in resort fees for towels? Finally, upon arriving home, in addition to all those fees, a $200 security deposit still sits on my card. After 12 years of staying with you, have I not proven myself trust worthy? Property is now overpriced for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 A great spot on the Beach in Grand Cayman
Our experience was incredible staying that close to the beach made for a great vacation. The benefits of the location with the great adventures with Red Sail made my Grade A an easy scoring. The hotel staff was very pleasant and every recommendation was on point for what we wanted. William(the bellman) is the Ambassador of the Caymans. The rooms are clean, well maintained and the service was very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by April2013 Great facilities but sometimes disappointing service
- Great location, probably the best part of seven mile beach, very wide part of the beach means plenty of space
- Pool area is well laid out, very well kept, pool staff generally very friendly and helpful
- Disappointing service at the front desk on almost every interaction. I travel very frequently for business and usually find the customer service at Westin hotels to be excellent elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3ggirls Great location
Really enjoyed our stay. However, they did not have an in room on demand for movies. The weather was bad a few days and with little ones it would have been nice. Also if you have kids there is no pizza on the menu or Mac n cheese and the pasta options are only at one hotel. If you are an adult it is fantastic!
Oh, not sure they have a spa. Never saw an ad, announcement etc., about one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kingb Dont' come if you think Platnum will get you anything
I never write these reviews. The only reason I'm writing this one is because the front desk staff and service express staff here was condescending at best. The facilities and beach are outstanding. The staff outside the hotel (pool staff, bar wait staff are great#. The staff inside #front desk, service express# are tough to deal with. As a platinum Starwood member I got a non beach view room and was denied a late check out #off season#. They also have closed the best restaurant #Casa Havana# for renovations #understandable). They instead advise you to book a table on the beach. This table is $150 just for the table set up before you eat or drink. Seems they should have waive this fee since the restaurant was closed. Overall it's a beautiful place but if you think being Starwood Platinum will do anything for you think again. The staff inside the hotel are about miserable while those outside are a pleasure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zoombotz This hotel was just okay
Overall , was a bit disappointed with my stay. Rooms are pretty run down and could use a makeover. We had 2 rooms, and both bathrooms smelled and were quite disgusting . The tub in both rooms did not drain well at all, and as a result, you were standing in a pool of sand and water while showering. Imagine trying to wash young children.... It was horrible.
Pool was small and dirty.

This was our 4th stay at this property and our best yet. The recent renovations have elevated this hotel to where it should be. The hotel rooms, hallways and shops are so much more bright and cheerful. The lobby has always been lovely and the staff even seemed more cheerful. Definitely, one of my favourite hotels and we will be back again.

Fantastic staff, especially Hadi and Penny. Always willing to help. As was the rest of the staff in the hotel - very accommodating. Room had amazing view, beach was right there and food in all places were good. Wish cafe was open later - through the eve - to accommodate snacks and drinks, especially for the kids. Would recommend to all.
