We had a wonderful vacation at the Westin Playa Conchal. The grounds are clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and eager to please. We traveled with our children ages 19 & 17 and stayed in the Junior Deluxe Suite with plenty of room.We felt the food was better in some restaurants than others. Favorites: Spirula Pizza/lunch, Faisanella/dinner.
The highlight of our trip was booking our excursions through Jonas at Adventours CR. Jonas provided our private airport shuttles, booked us two fishing trips with transportation (8 sailfish, 1 blue marlin), and took us on a customized zipline/horseback/hiking tour. It was an honor having the opportunity to explore Costa Rica with him. Please see detailed review under Adventours CR.
Things to remember:
Bring $1 and $5 bills for tipping(cab drivers, excursions, etc) and purchases as they will not give you american dollars in change.
Don't forget toiletries as these items are expensive in hotel shop.
