Stayed at the Westin for 2 weeks in May of this year. I travel a lot and know that you can always trust Starwood brands to deliver.
The hotel is at the very quiet end of the strip which was exactly why we booked it. The best way to get around is by the local bus service - a one-way trip is approx $1 each and you get to see all the other hotels and restaurants as you head into town. It took about 15 mins to get to La Isla shopping mall for example and 45 mins to get to downtown Cancun. The bus was perfectly safe and we travelled on it late into the night with no trouble at all.
We were upgraded to the Royal Beach Club which is a separate wing of the hotel with its own bar/restaurant and pool area. The room was huge and had a perfect view out onto the ocean. Our room also had a large balcony which was ideal for relaxing or reading after a day at the pool.
The hotel has several restaurants but the only one we tried was Sea and Stones which was fantastic. You get to cook your own food on a hot stone grill and the whole experience was great fun not to mention delicious. Other restaurants I would recommend in the area would be Thai, Katsu-ya and Freds.
The hotel has an excellent spa and fitness area. We visited the gym every day and it was very wel equipped and always immaculate. There are several pools - one with swim-up bar - which were welll maintained and a welcome relief from the sun.
The service at the hotel was without doubt exceptional. Staff called you by name after a few days which was a nice touch and nothing seemed like too much trouble. My sister celebrated her birthday at the hotel and was presented with a beautiful chocolate cake after dinner. There are so many staff I would like to thank but will leave it to Diego Chavez to do the thanking again on my behalf. He and his team are an asset to the Starwood brand.
The Westin Cancun is certainly one of the older properties but has been maintained well and is beautifully landscaped. We visited the other Westin and although it's brand new and well located I came away thinking I'd choose this property over it. There is a charm about the Westin that is missing from the newer property.
