Ok, let me start off with the positives!!!! The resort absolutely took my breathe away. The wildlife running around, the green land, some of the staff pure heaven. The ladies in the much needed spa. Fantastic!!!! The breakfast buffet phenomenon. But that's all I can say. First off I'm still taken back at our room. It smelled like old mop... More

My family and I stayed at this property two years ago and enjoyed it so much that we returned this year for another week. We were not disappointed. The Westin is a true 'all-inclusive'--food, drinks, activities and more are available in unlimited quantity and at no charge. This is a fantastic value--especially if you are traveling with voracious teens who... More

I have stayed at many all inclusive resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean and I have to say the Westin Playa Conchal is my favorite! The beach was gorgeous! The water was crystal clear, and if you walk down the beach a bit to the left the sand becomes more soft and less of the crushed she'll sand, but I... More

I honestly do not know where to begin! It was magical and just the most perfect vacation. We traveled August 21 - 26th from Canada to Liberia. We rented a car (absolutely worth the price to go exploring on your own! 1 week was roughly $450.) The drive was 50 min to an hour and was quite nice to see... More

The property is located in a beautiful area, the beach of the hotel is a cute beach. You can eat and drink as much as you want which it makes it a good value. Service is average for Costa rica, mistakes in the cleaning of the rooms are a constant. Also to reserve a table in the restaurants becomes a... More

The most amazing thing about this property is the beach - Playa Conchal is gorgeous and has incredible snorkeling with the most beautiful fish as soon as you wade in! Be sure to go over to the end of the beach with the rocks (to the right when you're facing the water). We found the best snorkeling to be at... More

The beach and the friendly workers were the only positives here. We loved snorkeling right off the shore (though most of the gear was broken). The people were also very nice, even though they seemed to work ridiculously long hours. The rooms were also relatively nice and clean. The nightly entertainment was also a lot of fun. For the downsides:... More

Nine of us stayed at the Westin booking through Costco. We were treated to a separate check in which was very convenient. Our rooms were in buildings 35 and 40. They were soooo close to everything I highly recommend this area of the resort. A bit of a trip to the main lobby but we only had to go there... More

I have been to many resorts but have never experienced the "above and beyond" service that we received at this resort from everyone we came in contact with.
