It's worth flying 20 hours to get to the W. It's amazing.
The Mercedes that picked me up at the airport. The ease of checking in, plus the views at reception.
The room was amazing. Best bed, lovely private pool, incredible bathroom.
I am SPG Gold - they upgraded me, made me feel welcome - and then left me alone to relax.
I've stayed in a ton of W hotels, and this was by far the best. The food, the service, the views, the facilities. They have a shuttle into town, and they never say no to any request.
Nick, the manager, even called to welcome me to the property. When does that ever happen?
If you go, make sure you have a Mojito at Sip, the outdoor bar at the beach. Incredibly good.
So many nice touches. The outdoor shower. The Sweet Spot that has ice cream and juice for free, everywhere you look.
Breakfast buffet was lovely and yummy. The spa was very relaxing.
It is expensive, but definitely worth it.
The one thing I will say is that the pictures on the SPG website don't really do the hotel justice. It is MUCH more impressive and incredible in person.
Trying to figure out how quickly I can get back there.
