Our family stayed 6 days at the Westin 3/21-3/26 and had a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back! Make sure to fly in to Liberia with a very nice new airport. Less than 1 hr from Airport to Hotel. Central American Tours transfer was very knowledgeable of the area and the ride provided a great into to our trip.... More

I loved this hotel. My wife and I stayed at The Royal Beach Club and the service was EXCELLENT! Our concierge were great, the food was very good and we enjoyed the pools and swim up bars. We heard about Erik who organized excursions through friends and on Trip Advisor before we left. We were very glad we used him!... More

We stayed here in late March 2013. The positive- the hotel and grounds are huge and impressive (although there are virtually no ocean views from most rooms (even if you pay a bundle)) but there are trolleys to take you around every few minutes and that transportation works well. There are a few wild animals on the property which was... More

We stayed at the Westin during the week before Easter. The grounds are vast and beautiful. The staff is accommodating. The food, however, was very average - at best. We could not get dinner reservations on our first night. Considering we only stayed two nights, that was a problem. I did not pay that kind of money to be served... More

My family just returned from Costa Rica, where we stayed at the Westin Playa Conchal for a week. The hotel is in a beautiful spot on one of the nicest beaches we saw in Costa Rica. First off, let me confirm what so many others have said on this site: Eric Garcia is fantastic! After reading reviews here, we went... More

The Westin is exactly what you would expect from any Westin. A large all inclusive resort with your typical amenities - pool, spa, buffet, restaurants, shows. The resort is clean and you get your typical maid service in the morning and turn down service at night. The pool is large but we spent most of our time at the beach... More

Came to Costa Rica for my birthday. my husband & I stayed March 20-26th. The rooms were nice, the staff (other than one) was really friendly & helpful. We booked our excursions outside the hotel on the beach through John. He was absolutely wonderful & so kind. We went on the snorkeling/catamaran sunset tour through Lazy Lizard and let me... More

The property is beautiful and the staff is friendly and competent. The food, however, is poor. We have stayed at all inclusive resorts before, so we went into this trip with fairly low expectations for the food, but The Westin still disappointed us. By the way, book your reservations the day you arrive. The other posts about frustrating reservation experiences... More

The Westin Playa Conchal was everything I hoped it would be. Beautiful grounds. Great pool. The beach is gorgeous and water is unbelievably warm. Definitely go for a walk all the way down the beach if you can...or at least walk for ten minutes. The sand becomes perfect and you will have the beach to yourself. Food was delicious for... More

I recently brought an incentive of 320 people to the Westin Playa Conchal. All services, from check-in, to bell staff to food and beverage, front office, etc. all performed very well. My client, and nearly all of the 320 guests, had a great time there. I highly recommend the Westin Playa Conchal for any incentive or group.
