As with any service oriented business, it's not how you start, but how you finish. Issues or concerns are bound to happen on any trip, but how the staff and management handle your concerns are what make a great hotel. The Westin Conchal is such a place. When traveling, we usually plan ahead by contacting the hotel concierge and setting...

I've waited to write this to get a little perspective. Overall, the property is beautiful, pool great, especially with kids, and nice to have the all inclusive so not nickeled and dimed for everything. That said, got some kind of food borne bacteria the first day, on property, that built for about three days before laying me out for 48/hours....

We visited in July 2014. I'm coming back with a review a year later because we recently visited Paradisus in Riviera Maya, which had very similar reviews to this, but definitely was not even close to being on the same level as Westin.

I really wanted to love this resort. It is beautiful and the rooms are nice. The golf course was awesome and the spa was excellent. The bartenders at the pool bar were the great.

Like everyone has stated, the resort staff is uber friendly and helpful. The food and drink choices are plenty. Some complaints: 1. The website states that elegant casual is the dress code for the nicer restaurants. This was certainly not the case. Flip flops, shorts, and T-shirts were the common attire for some folks. I personally don't care, but it...
