we have booked the Marriot for this summer, the Westin is a lot more expensive so it ought to be a lot better.
The cheapest room at the westin is 286 and this is excluding breakfast and any other meals.
Furthermore this rate cannot be changed and has to be fully prepaid.
We have booked a family package at Marriot for 230$ including breakfast, Pizza and sodas for one night end turndown service every night with milk and cookies.
If you're a Starwood Preferred Guests member (Westin, Sheraton, W chain) you can get 50% off of the rack rate at Westin for up to 5 nights for only 1,000 points. It's something to think about as compared to using thousands of points. I booked am Island view room for $170/night in June. You can book Oceanview also for a bit more. Last time I boked an Islandview, we were upgraded for free to an Oceanview on arrival, so am hoping this year will be the same. If not, I'll just pay the difference when we get there.
That being sad, we're staying 5 nights at Plantana condos (2 doors down from Westin), then just staying at Westin the last 2 nights.
Plantana has a "Stay 5, Pay for 4" special, which makes our 2 bedroom condo just $240/night. A 1 bedroom condo would be even less.
The Westin is a really nice hotel and the beach is the best on 7mb, so I would choose it over the Marriott.
wow I didn´t know this. I know we have quite a few points, I will look into it
If you look on sites like gocayman.ky, thereef.blogspot.com, caymanairways, etc., you might find lots of specials. Always worth taking a look!
I think I will transfer our booking to the Westin, we have plenty of points for getting the 50% discount
I love TA - lots of great advise
I agree that the rooms at the Westin, and the Resort are OK, not great. But for $170 per night, you can't complain. My friend paid over $600 per night for Christmas week and it was definately not worth it. It is not one of the better Westins, but the weather and beach are great.
