“Exceeded our expectations!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We just returned from PV yesterday and spent 6 nights at the Westin Resort at the Marina. Our room was great. The pool area spotless and lovely. Most of all the service was outstanding. Anything we contacted Service Express about was looked after within ten minutes!! Gillian at the front desk was more than helpful. Would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat!

At this time, the hotel is being renovated. We got a room in the first floor with a King bed in the tower that was supposedly already finished. Well, they forgot the shower. There was one on the wall of the bathtub but no curtains, so no way to take a shower without flooding the whole room. We asked to be changed. They gave us another room on an upper floor of another tower with two double beds but at least with a shower. No coffee pot (you are supposed to ask for one). Cable TV and telephone were not working. We had to ask font desk to send a technician to fix it. The roof above was being renovated and debris, dust and of course a lot of noise starting at 8:00am. Nice pools, terrible beach front. Housekeeping was lousy. We had to request face and hand towels, a coffee pot (they only brought coffee, cream and sugar one morning). The shower was never cleaned, the balcony dirty and the beach beds old and disgusting. Too many vendors. Cannot compare to the Westin in Cancun that was great.

The property is very well maintained and includes a large pool area. Prices are low in early December before the beginning of the seasonal rush. Our deal included a terrific buffet breakfast each day and pay for two, get three nights accommodation. The hotel is located in the marina area, at least 10 km from downtown but you can hop the local bus for only 6.5 pesos or about 50 cents US. Food is quite good at the hotel but overpriced. Also the internet charge of $10.00 US per hour is crazy. You can walk across the street from the hotel, have a cup of coffee and access free wi-fi.

This Hotel is ok but needs reno's the rooms are very outdated and really showing there age. They were painting the pink in the Lobby and hall ways. But they should be doing the rooms instead. Restaurant prices are crazy expensive. Go to the Marina and eat at Victor's. Happy hour prices are high but do-able. Staff is good, but all the Hotels in PV have great staff.

Room Tip: Only stay in the higher rooms, closest to the water.If you bring water or snacks to the beach, hide...

My husband and I brought our 14 month old son to this large and beautiful resort. They were painting the buildings but they were so organized that you hardly even noticed the extra workers. The food was delicious and we loved the pool and beach. Oh, and the sunsets were incredible! Also, with the marina just across the street there was always somewhere to eat and shop without even getting in a cab :-)
Definitely recommend!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a beach view, but that is a must for the sunset!

This is a nice hotel in an attractive setting. We have used this property on several occasions over the last eight years and would like to use it again but won't. With each passing year, this hotel seems to be more interested in catering to local parties (especially weddings) which the hotel allows to play ridiculously loud music until 2 or 3 AM. If you thought that you might like to fall asleep at night listening to the sound of the surf on the beach, forget it. The front desk staff simply smiles when asked about what time the music will stop and tells you that they can do nothing about it. DON'T STAY HERE FOR A RELAXING AND TRANQUIL VACATION. GO ELSEWHERE.
