This is the only all inclusive property in the Starwood hotel system and its a welcome addition. Everything about this hotel is easy including our direct flight from JFK to the one year old airport in Liberia. We had our luggage and were through customs and immigration within 10 minutes and then at the hotel within an hour. We had... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westin Playa Conchal for our honeymoon between September 30 - October 6, 2013. We had an amazing time! The service, rooms and food were all incredible. The beach was public but was still nice. We did a few excursions through Eric Garcia and they were wonderful, great value for the money we spent.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Westin. We loved the resort and the beach. The staff were friendly and the quality of the spa was excellent. We were surprised by the number of children at the resort in mid February - and only remark about it because it did influence the ambiance of the restaurants in the evening when they... More

I will start by saying I came expecting an experience similar to the Grand Velas All-Inclusive Resorts. The hotel is billed as a 5 star resort and the price supported that. The resort itself is beautiful, the grounds are well cared for and very clean. We were greeted by warm staff in an expansive lobby. The view is beautiful from... More

Hi Everyone, We just returned from the Westin Playa Conchal, Costa Rica. Needless to say, Costa Rica is amazing! Thank you "tripadvisor contributors" on the forums for all of your great advise - especially paying the "Exit Tax" at the Westin and not at the airport. The Westin should promote doing this because the hassle and line at the airport... More

This was our second trip to Playa Conchal...the first was in 2002 prior to the Westin management. It is as beautiful as I remember it to be. We stayed at the Royal Beach Club (RBC),Tower 1, and the additional expense of the RBC is well worth it. Check-In and Check-Out process at the RBC office is private and very smooth.... More
