4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I came here for 4 days as part of a work rewards trip. Having been to a few various beach resorts through the Caribbean and Central America, we kind of feel like they are all one in the same. The westin Playa Conchal is nice. The service seemed to be fairly solid and for an all-inclusive, I'd... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for 3 days. It does not feel like a true 5 star. Maybe higher end of 4 star. Food is so so for dinner. Breakfast is average. Lunch sucks. Pros - location - on the beach Cons - food, overall amenities Quality is below that is a 5 star definitely

You must walk over 5 min to go anywhere. Transport is NEVER around when you need it. This resort is very large and spreadout. The food was OK but unless you buy club level you are considered lower class and the drinks are bottom shelf. They had no entertainment at the pool other than music. Lame and overpriced!!!!

We loved this resort! You truly feel as though you are in the jungle at times because monkeys are running around and jumping from tree to tree, iguanas walk around the resort, and there is plenty of other types of wildlife around. The pool is amazing and very refreshing during the hot dry days. I highly recommend renting a jet... More

My wife and i stayed at this resort for our honeymoon. We specifically stayed in the Royal Towers section of the resort. If you are celebrating something similar or looking for a romantic getaway, I highly encourage this adults only section of the resort. We found the majority of the restaurants to be good (adequate at the very least). There... More

This was the second stop in our 2 week Costa Rica vacation and we very much enjoyed our visit. When we arrived we were upgraded to the Royal Beach Club and that was a real treat. The pool was calm and uncrowded (until the meeting folks arrived after their day) which made it a great place to relax. There was... More

Let me start by saying the hotel is very nice, the staff excellent, the food amazing but the beach is horrible. So disappointed in the beach. There is a high "wall" of shrubs around the pool/hotel area that separates it from the beach. I know why! Upon entering the beach area there are so many local venders that it does... More

My family, 8 of us, went to the Westin during our children's spring break. They are 6 & 8. The staff treated them like royalty. We would like to recognize Evelyn in the kids club and pool and Ramon & Juan at the pool bar. From check in to check out all of us were always greeted with smiles by... More

We enjoyed our lovely room, the massive fun pool with giant swim up bar and the pristine beach. The activity desk was very helpful with day trips and free borrowing of basic beach gear - snorkels, body boards, etc. The staff are very friendly and gracious. That being said, this isn't what I would call an 'authentic' Costa Rican experience.... More

The Westin here is quiet and less crowded compared to all other resorts I have been to. The crowd is older. Lots of wildlife- lizards, birds, monkeys and caoti's. The rooms were very nice and clean. There was a truck to pick you up and take you around the resort so you didn't have to walk. It has a beautiful... More
