Editor’s Review of The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa

This is a traditional Westin resort with all of its elegance and attention to detail, despite the understated entrance to the resort via West Bay Road. That's because the real showcase is the east side, facing Seven Mile Beach and the Caribbean. In fact, the Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa is the closest island resort to the water. Throughout the day, the water's edge is a non-stop line of walkers and joggers exploring every inch of those perfect 7 miles. The Westin, like most other hotels, has put its decorating and landscaping dollars here, where it gets the most traffic.

Beaches are all public in the Cayman Islands, thus creating some great people-watching opportunities on Seven Mile Beach. However, the
... more beach staff at the Westin takes great care in keeping its little slice of heaven immaculately groomed and assuring that all lounge chairs and umbrellas are dedicated to the guests at the Westin.

Built in 1997, the Westin survived the direct hit of Hurricane Ivan in 2004 with minimal damage, a testament to the overall construction quality of the property. The gorgeous beach resort has been upgraded and improved several times since -- including a nearly complete revamp of the hotel in 2017. less

The guestrooms, all of which have been revamped, feature tones of blue, teal and white for an ultimately fresh, beach vibe that's both luxurious and comfortable. Adjoining rooms are possible in the remaining guestrooms that include one king- or two queen-size Westin Heavenly Beds. There is no additional charge for cribs in any room, although rollaway beds incur a nightly charge. DVD players are available in the rooms upon request for an additional fee as well. All bathrooms have tub/show combinations, but the bathrooms are not overly spacious for multiple children. All of the basics, such as coffeemaker, hairdryer and ironing board are included.

Oceanfront and Ocean View Rooms
The majority of the rooms are oceanfront or ocean view. The difference is that oceanfront provides a direct view from your balcony or patio; ocean view means you have to turn your head about 45 degrees to see the ocean. Both are spectacular and include access to your balcony or patio via delicately framed French doors. No need to worry about little ones on the balcony. The rails are easily four feet high and exceed US standards for safety. Ground level rooms provide easiest access to the pool or beach.

Island View Rooms
Other rooms are Island View and face West Bay Road, a rather busy three-lane highway that connects one end of the island to the other. Not all have balconies, but the rates are cheaper, and really, how much time are you going to spend in your room anyway?

Presidential Suites
The two presidential suites are extremely popular for families traveling during the holidays and are often booked years in advance. Otherwise, two two-bedroom suites and four one-bedroom suites are the only options for suites.
