After reading lots of reviews on Tripadvisor, I was a little nervous to see what our actual experience would be like at this hotel. I've stayed Westins for work and they are always really nice so figured this had to be a pretty nice hotel... and it was. It met all my expectations and more. The front desk staff is so helpful and gave us a really nice hotel room for no extra charge. Our room was on the 5th floor, had a balcony that overlooked the beautiful pools and ocean. The room was very nice, the shower was heavenly and so was the king size bed. There was an ice machine down the hall from our room so we were able to buy some beers from the Oxxo across the street and chill them in our sink. The pools and pool-side service were AMAZING. The beach is really nice too. Just get down there early enough to get a chair or two. You can swim in the beach and the water is usually pretty warm. The view of the mountains and PV is so pretty. The gym is also nice and machines were always available. We never ate at the hotel, just had a few drinks at the pool bar, but would take the bus for 50 cents to town every night for dinner. It comes right in front of the hotel and takes about 20 minutes to get to PV. For breakfast/coffee/lunch we would walk to the Marina, which is only a few blocks from the hotel.
After visiting the Marina and seeing the other hotels in downtown PV - off the boardwalk, I'd prefer to stay at the Marina. It's a tropical Oasis, removed from all the busyness, but still close enough to get to town when you want to go.
The one complaint was the expensive wifi, but I'm on vacation so why do I need to be on my phone/ipad anyway? It was nice to be removed from all of that and just relax.
I'll be returning to this Westin!
