We finished our 3 week vacation in Costa Rica with 4 nights here. We managed to get in at the royal beach club. John took very good care of us. David was also very helpful. The rooms are clean and modern and the bed was very comfortable. We would walk to the main pool taking in the sights and sounds... More

My new wife and I stayed at the Westin Playa Conchal for nine nights as our honeymoon. It was my first time out of the USA. The resort was amazing! The food was incredible, except the Latin restaurant. We booked the basic room and would not have wanted a different one because it was great. The french restaurant and the... More

At that time, the Westin had just taken over this resort and my family and I were looking forward to... More

We ended our 9 day trip to Costa Rica with 3 relaxing days at this resort. The property is huge! Its intimidating until you find your way around, but it is really incredibly beautiful. We were late booking and this was our first time to Costa Rica, so we didn't think to ask for a room closer to the beach... More

We were brought to this resort because our other resort was overbooked. We were upgraded into there highest tier rooms, which included top shelf liquor and its own private pool, restaurant, and concierge. Either way, I can comment on the rest of the resort as well, but not on the other rooms. When we first got to this resort, we... More

From the moment we arrived at the Liberia airport we knew that we were going to have a wonderful time in Costa Rica. The airport both arrival & departure went very smooth with friendly staff all around. After an hour drive (which didn't seem that long) through mountainous terrain,farms and small towns I never got a feeling that we were... More

We have been all over the world and have yet to find such a magnificent place! The service, the beauty, the FUN! The rooms were gorgeous! We stayed in connecting cabana rooms - one for the kids and one for us! They had free wifi for starwood members. We visited almost every restaurant on the property and they were WONDERFUL!... More

It takes approximately 50 minutes to get to the Westin Playa Conchal from the Liberia Airport but it is definitely worth the trip! I was there with a group last March during the "dry" season which is strangely their "high occupancy" season and this time in August - the "wet" season. What a difference! The grounds were lush and green... More
