My wife and i stayed at this resort for our honeymoon. We specifically stayed in the Royal Towers section of the resort. If you are celebrating something similar or looking for a romantic getaway, I highly encourage this adults only section of the resort. We found the majority of the restaurants to be good (adequate at the very least). There...

This was the second stop in our 2 week Costa Rica vacation and we very much enjoyed our visit. When we arrived we were upgraded to the Royal Beach Club and that was a real treat.

Let me start by saying the hotel is very nice, the staff excellent, the food amazing but the beach is horrible. So disappointed in the beach. There is a high "wall" of shrubs around the pool/hotel area that separates it from the beach. I know why! Upon entering the beach area there are so many local venders that it does...

We enjoyed our lovely room, the massive fun pool with giant swim up bar and the pristine beach. The activity desk was very helpful with day trips and free borrowing of basic beach gear - snorkels, body boards, etc. The staff are very friendly and gracious. That being said, this isn't what I would call an 'authentic' Costa Rican experience....

The Westin here is quiet and less crowded compared to all other resorts I have been to. The crowd is older. Lots of wildlife- lizards, birds, monkeys and caoti's. The rooms were very nice and clean. There was a truck to pick you up and take you around the resort so you didn't have to walk. It has a beautiful...

We stayed here for our 10th anniversary and were very pleased. We upgraded and stayed at the Royal Beach Club, well worth it. The food was great, service was friendly, and grounds were beautiful. The rooms were spotless. Only drawbacks are that it is on a public beach, but seemed very safe. Also transfers are not included and not cheap.
