we are now booked for first time to grand cayman!! have ?!!!

we have airline booked but no rooms yet. need advice!!

we are family of 4 (2 adults/2 teen boys) we are marriott members so we are considering a stay there;sounds like the beach is not that great there; not really an issue for us as we were just in cancun and the beach was very small there...however we prefer the feel of an upscale resort; ie. the westin, marriott or hyatt...our issue is that we will need two rooms as the boys need their "space" too. where would we most likely have other teens, a great beach, nice pool and a place near by for buying food and drinks (grocery store). we would consider a condo but have no first hand experience with anything!! on grand cayman.

thanks in advance for the advice! really hoping to book soon.

oh, we are arriving early march 08'

thanks for all the help!

the condos we were interested in (meridian) didn't have avail. on the dates we needed and after a lot of checking we just booked the marriott(two rooms); hope we made a good choice?!!

I am going to keep checking back with the hyatt though after the new year in case the new owners lower their prices...hmmm.

westin was also on our list but they didn't offer any specials, etc. at the time...we are marriott members so the points and advantage of earning more points/status was a plus...

even though westin seemed to have a bigger "feel" thru the pictures and comments we just went with our gut feeling and went with marriott.

I would recommend Plantana. We stayed there this summer. My review is here on trip advisor.

If you are looking for someplace right across the street from the grocery store, try the Meridian, they are very beautiful and you won't need to rent a car for grocery trips.

I agree with last poster that Plantana might work better than Marriott. Much better beach area, close to variety of restaurants/services, benefit of condo over hotel rooms.

We are staying at the Hyatt with 2 teenage girls and going to get a roll away bed so the girls will not have to fight and sleep together.
