The condo we had at Malinche was beautiful. There was good and bad with having a first floor condo. It was convenient in and out, but the condos upstairs had even better views than we did.
The condo was very spacious and well appointed. We had 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The kitchen had all the equipment, but it did not have basic condiments (salt / pepper/ olive oil etc) other than morning coffee fixings - so be prepared and bring some provisions.
Fortunately we had a car and could drive to the store and the beach club which is where the meals are served for the condo guests. The beach club is very nice. The food is good, the service is relaxed and not rushed. However as others have noted, the beach club is not near the condos, it is about a 5 minute drive and about 2 -3 miles away on a roundabout road. Without a car though you are at the mercy of the shuttles.
There are little towns nearby including Brasalito and Flamingo Beach. We drove there for dinner a couple nights and it was good.
The golf course at the resort is beautiful and very challenging. We were there in early January and the course was not busy. You can get on twilight for $95. Regular rate is $150.
The staff at the reception desk are very nice and helpful. The concierge and I think the main guy is named Sergio and he is excellent. As others have noted, this property is not affiliated with the Westin which is a beautiful place although the Reserva Conchal people are not really supposed to be meandering about. You can get a day pass all inclusive for $85 according to someone at the Westin.
Overall I did enjoy the Reserva Conchal condo, but if you don't have a car, it is a challenge.
