Our family of four is wrapping up our first trip to the Cayman Islands, but this place is so perfect for traveling families, that I very much hope this is just our first trip of many to this sunny, happy, beautiful destination. Grand Cayman has the softest sand, clear blue and turquoise water, delicious food, friendly people, and lots of easily accessible activities if you want to do more than lay out by the ocean. The island is geographically close to the United States at just 453 miles from Miami. There are many airlines that operate nonstop flights to Grand Cayman, and you have a variety of hotel award options on the island such as using IHG points at the swanky Kimpton Seafire or the Holiday Inn Grand Cayman Resort, the Comfort Suites Seven Mile Beach using Choice Hotel points, the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort or the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman with your Marriott points.
We spent our time on Grand Cayman staying at the Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort using our Starwood Preferred Guest points, and I cannot imagine a better mix of award value, location, activities, amenities, and an otherworldly perfect stretch of beach right off the back of the hotel. No getting wet and sandy children in a car, no long hot walk to the water, no bathroom emergencies without a good solution, no hauling your own beach umbrellas, tents, or towels. Just you, your kids, and beach perfection starting at just 9,600 SPG points per night on a five-night award stay with the fifth night free.
There will be much, much more to come, but for now, here is a sneak peek at our time staying at the Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Resort. From the welcome drinks, to the lobby with a view, to lounging around, jet skiing, eating, and playing in ocean water that looks like a swimming pool, this was a family trip to remember.
Just so you don’t get confused, that last picture is ocean water, not pool water, that is how insanely clear and perfect the water is right off of the back of the hotel. As soon as we get home, I promise to catch you up on all we experienced here in case you want to replicate some of it for your own family. If you want to see more about this hotel and Grand Cayman now, head over to Instagram as I have been sharing tons of the peeks from the island and the hotel on my Instagram Stories.
