One of Travel Agent's favorite hotels in Grand Cayman, The Westin Grand Cayman recently poured $6 million into it's pool and new pool deck as part of an overall two-phase, $50 million renovation.
In fact, Travel Agent was among the first travel media to tour the pool as the first phase of the renovation was just completed about two weeks ago. We loved how sexy this pool looked at night lit up as guests mingled along the chic patio area nearby, sipping cocktails from the pool area's main bar, which includes a swim-up component.

The pool bar is open from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m., except Sunday when it opens at 11 a.m. We were told the Cayman Mama, Cayman Sunset and Cayman Lemonade are some of the pool's most popular drinks. Frozen fruit snacks are also offered in the pool area.
Tortuga’s Beach Grill & Bar services the entire pool deck for lunch and dinner. The pool area also has 12 Deluxe cabanas for rent just off the pool deck for those who want to enjoy both the pool and beach experience at once.
During the day, Millennials will literally feel like rock stars as the pool occasionally offers poolside Karaoke. The schedule of all pool activities, which also includes such interactive games as trivia, Caribbean bingo and scavenger hunts, rotates regularly, so we recommend checking with the front desk the morning of. Agents should note that the pool also offers diving classes for beginners and water yoga.
As far renting the pool area out goes, groups can utilize the north end of the pool based on the amount of rooms reserved.
The $50 million renovation will continue throughout the year with the bulk of the second phase consisting of a redesign of the hotel's roughly 340 rooms and suites. We were told that will be completed by August.
