We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and at the center of if was our stay at the Westin Golf and Spa Resort in Playa Conchal. We do not play golf but the course looked great. We only dined off the resort one night since the Westin has a variety of restaurants. There is plenty to do on or in reasonable distance from the property. We did zip lining and horseback riding on the beach. One thing we decided not to do is deep sea fishing as it was very pricey. Resort staff was very friendly and attentive. David was our concierge and he did an outstanding job to ensure we had a great time.
The one dinner off site was at the Golden Shrimp which was dinner on the beach. I read the warning posted on the Golden Shrimp concerning the tip of 10% being included in the check. Probably a good idea to check at any restaurant but regardless the Golden Shrimp was reasonably priced, very good lobster and shrimp and friendly staff.
Our trip was in August 2012 which is during the rainy season but we only had one day where it rained briefly. Eat before you go to the airport, Liberia airport was considerably more than expected. Great country to visit, people were friendly and resort was awesome.
