My family vacationed last year in Grand Cayman. Absolutely loved it. Stayed in a condo and was perfect for the family.
However, I am now in charge of planning a meeting next year, for 9 docs with spouses from all across US. Needs to be a “special” event. Cayman seems great as it is easy access from the east and west coasts.
Am I best with a resort hotel, or are there other more intimate options? Is Ritz most suitable, or are there others that would compete for our needs (e.g. Westin)? I don’t want to say that money is not a factor, as I am expected to make the meeting cost efficient, but this annual meeting is a high quality event for this group. I don’t want to plan in a loud, busy resort. I will need a meeting room for the nine docs (board room style). Spa services for the women (although they could travel to another site for the spa if needed). Great beach on site with amenities.
Any other suggestions, or contacts would be welcome! Thank You!
For something like this, however, Joe might be able to give you another contact person who would work out the details for a group.
I’m sure that when you had a great family vacation last year in a condo in Cayman, you went back home and thought what a great place it would be for your group. In my opinion, staying at a place like the Ritz would not even capture what appealed to you about the Cayman Islands….if you do a little reading on the forum, you’ll see that we’re not too fond of that hotel.
Also, I think that “cost efficient” and the Ritz is an oxymoron….. 🙄
thanks for your advice on this. We went to the beach at the Marriott when we were down there. seems nice although we didn’t poke around too much. good to know about the Ritz; didn’t figure on that! I’ll investigate. any opinion on Westin? thanks again. -Greg
