One of the beautiful beach in Costa Rica. You cannot access is directly -- unless you are staying at the Westin. We drove through Playa Brasilito and park our car right there and walked to arrive at this beautiful beach. White sand and clear water, no waves - the beach was stunning. There were areas where sand was little rough... More

On Wed. 2/10, I woke up with the left side of my neck and shoulder in spasm and intense pain. Suffered through a river cruise and a sleepless night before having Kathy deliver an an incredible massage Thursday morning, focusing on the affected areas. For over an hour she dug in, stretching and manipulating my neck and shoulders, as well... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the first time we tried an All-inclulsive resort. The Guanacaste Westin Playa Conchal totally surpassed our hopes for a great vacation. The setting is beautiful, the service and friendliness off the staff amazing, the ease of moving around was helpful for this senior citizen and we loved, loved, loved the pool... More

Spend 7 days on this beach loved loved it. Beautiful to walk, run and snorkel on. Wave action was awesome depending of the tides. Drop off can be sudden as can the draw back of the waves as they crash onto the beach.

This place was amazing when we visited in 2006. Amazing service, kind and helpful staff. Looks like it has grown far too much for us to return, which is unfortunate

Crazy waves, not worth it for snorkeling if that is what your looking for but well worth the surf and crazy beach. Was a lot of fun and beautiful. Was like it says A shell beach so people with sensitive feet wear shoes.

Small quiet beach with little wave action, suitable for small children and safe swimming. The one restaurant on the beach has good food. Try the chicken nachos.

My husband and I visited Playa Conchal the other day. We drove through Playa Brasilito to arrive at this mini paradise! The beach was stunning. The water was crystal clear and the sand was made up of tiny seashells. There were several vendors selling local food and souvenirs. We spent ~1 hour here and enjoyed the refreshing water and soft...

Beautiful and serene beach. Very calm water - perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Lots of vendors. Get a massage there is worth every penny.

My husband and I enjoyed about an hour or so playing in the surf, collecting shells and snapping pictures of Playa del Conchal. We drove from Liberia area (1hr 20min) Yes, there are LOTS of vendors up towards the trees (where there is a beach "road") so stay clear if you don't want to shop for souvenirs and book a... More
