Westin vs Marriott - Using points, Family of 4

We are considering going to the Cayman Island for Easter week next year, and have enough loyalty points to stay at either the Westin or the Marriott. We stayed at the Westin once before back in 2006, and had a good time. From what I remember walking along the beach, the beach was nicer at Westin. Any reason to choose the Marriott over the Westin? Also our boys are ages 6 and 12, and we would be looking to use a kids club occasionally for the 6 year old. We also love snorkeling off the beach, but also plan on renting a car and going to the different activies/beaches throughout the island.

We've stayed at both over the years and have found the Westin (most recently in March) to more to our liking. The beach is definitely much better at the Westin...wider, longer, less crowded etc. The Marriott does have the better marine life right there with the man-made reef balls for very easy snorkeling. The Westin isn't on the same scale but there is the Governor's Beach reef about 100 yards out. Also, the Westin has become dated and needs refreshing which is do to being very shortly. They should be done by the time you visit. You can't go wrong with the points either. I would opt for the Westin.

Thanks so much. We are also leaning towards the West in as well. Hopefully they will be done with renovations by next March when we are planning to go.

Glad to hear it. Best to recheck come Jan/Feb to see how far along they are too.
