The rooms were nice in the Towers and the service was excellent. The Royal Service was worth it! Nice pool and staff. There are no rooms with a view which is kind of disappointing. The beach is fine but it has quite a few people trying to sell you stuff. The food was great . I loved their staff!

I am really shocked that the Westin has received such great reviews - I decided to stay book it because of all the +++++ reviews but I was not impressed. This place is average. The rooms are just OK, nothing special... Kind of dated and seem "used up" little things - Shower dripped , didn't spray- minibar was cool not... More
