We had a family vacation at the Casa Magna in September. The experience was fantastic. I loved the location, delicious food and a great beach. Not to mention, the staff were excellent and super polite.
Here are a couple of tips however. I was debating whether to stay at the JW versus Casa Magna (about a $40 per night difference). Both share the same property ground and you can certainly go into either hotel restaurants and pool area (atleast I did and when I asked if it was ok, they said ok). Secondly, avoid booking tours through the hotels, Go to the mall opposite the Westin, about a 5 min bus ride away, and buy the tickets for about half the price (really!). Our experience booking through the mall tours was great. The only caveat they pick you up around 7.30 AM and aggregate you at the main hub and then push off.
I also need to mention the breakfast buffet at the La Capella Grill. You have 5-6 fresh juices to choose from, over a dozen varieties of bread and cheese, made to order eggs, the most amazing spiced hot chocolate ever, pancakes, waffles and even Asia food - Thai curry, springrolls..
We were upgraded to a premier sea facing room. It is worth spending the extra dollars on this as at night you can leave the balcony door open and sleep to the pleasant sound of the sea and feel the breeze.
Highly recommend the Marriott for any traveler.
