I'm looking into a july trip staying at the westin for one week out of newark airport, we are 2 adults and 2 kids. Getting a price of $7000. Does this sound right?

Are you coming around the first week of July? My friend was looking into airfare for 7/2-7/7 from Baltimore and was getting a price of approx. $800 per ticket. I think it sounds high if you are looking at dates after 7/4.

$7000 total airfare and hotel? Which airline, and from Newark?

Although you didn't ask, if the idea of a spacious condo on the beach for 4 people instead of a hotel room appeals to you, there are many in the area. You most likely will have summer specials and would not have to pay hotel or restaurant prices for everything you eat and drink.

Just a suggestion, ask for recommendations if interested. Many truly prefer the hotel experience.

Sounds way expensive. Where are you getting the costs, what class of flight and hotel room?

Did you look into the Only in Cayman summer family promotion?

Wow, i played around on the promotion page, it redirected me to United Vacations and yes, it was $6,000 +, coach and basic room at the Westin.

I hope that someone who is travel saavy here can help to find better summer prices for you.

That price is outragous! For $500/night (what the Westin is likely costing you in that package) you can stretch out in a great condo where your kids can have their own room and, more importantly, so can you.

$7000 for a week in the summer sounds like way too much to me

I just looked up flights in July and on American they were around $600...,.so that means you're paying close to $5000 for your hotel room

condos are plentiful in Cayman and right on the beach....even though you are a hitel person you might want to check some condos out at caymanvacation.com, caymanvacations.com or caydirect.com
