My fiance and I stayed here last Thanksgiving and wow were we impressed. From the second we arrived we were treated like royalty. And the bonus was it was all inclusive! Seriously amazing. The grounds were beautiful. The location was great. The pools were amazing. The food was good especially for an all inclusive property. The gym was fantastic. The entertainment was sometimes cheesy but that is all part of the vacation. Our room was simply breathtaking. We had a full living room, separate bedroom, huge shower, and a jacuzzi on our balcony I kid you not. It was clean and so much fun. I miss it there so much which is why I am writing this now I cant get the place out of my head! It is a great way to experience Costa Rica! LOVE.

We stayed at the Westin from Feb 10,2013 to Feb 17, 2013. This was our 3rd visit to this hotel and by far the best! The renovations to the restaurants and the rooms are beautiful. We stayed in a 2nd story room overlooking the Golf Course. There were always birds or monkeys to entertain us. Staff was always attentive and met all of out needs

The boys in blue on the beach are who you should book your tours with. We have done most of the tours and our tour to Mirevalles Volcano was the best we have ever had thanks to them!

We will return to the Westin as we always do. They never fail to provide us with the 5 star service we have come to expect from them.

Room Tip: Golf Course view rooms are the best. Second floor are the quietest.

This is an amazing place! It is located by the Pacific on the northern coast of CR and everything is first class from accommodations to the food. Safe. Comfy. Scenic. Friendly. Water is safe to drink. Lots to do and see.

Room Tip: We ended up in Tower Two with a ground floor garden balcony. Wonderful and quiet.

We rented a home on the Westin property in Playa Conchal. We had a couple of ideas of what we would like to do on our first trip to Costa Rica but did not know much about the location and its surroundings. We met Aaron on our first day at the Westin. He proceeded to help plan an activity for our family for almost everyday that we were there. He customized the trips/tours to accommodate the children in our group. We could have not asked for a nicer more knowledgeable person to help make our trip to Costa Rica memorable. Our family not only left feeling Aaron was an excellent tour guide but we left feeling he was our new friend. We highly recommend Aaron if you are heading to the Westin in Playa Conchal.

This is one of two resorts I stayed at in Costa Rica as a young honeymooning couple from Houston, Texas. We selected the resort based on the great reviews and the resort lived up to expectations. We stayed for 3 nights and wish we stayed longer! We stayed here purely to relax and soak up the sun, so didn't give any excursions a try.

The pros were:
- Nicely manicured and scenic grounds
- On arrival, we received a free upgrade to the Royal Beach Club - we would HIGHLY recommend paying for the RBC. The access to the private pool was huge plus - it was never too crowded and we appreciated the drink service.
- Great wifi throughout the grounds - it was so great people were Facetiming on their iPads at the pool
- We didn't use the beach much, but it was beautiful and we enjoyed a great sunset out there. Nice short walk to the beach. Beach chairs provided.
- Great food - we ate at the Italian and Mediterranean a la carte restaurants. Both were delicious with great and prompt service. It was hard to get reservations so call as soon as you arrive. Great
breakfast buffet. Tried the pool side restaurant for lunch - some of the best French fries I have ever had.
- Beautiful pool
- Fabulous gym for cardio with good view - lots of lizards to watch while you run.

Not many cons here. The one negative was the pedestrian vehicle interface. There are lots of shuttles around to take visitors from one side of the resort to the other, but it makes for congested walk ways. The hotel walls were quite thin - you will hear your neighbors.

Overall, excellent resort and great introduction to Costa Rica!

Beautiful hotel!! Very remote area means going off the resort for activities. Erik Garcia is the man to see on the beach. My husband and I rode a jet ski for an hour, rode 4 wheelers on a private tour for 2.5 hours, rode horses on a private tour for 2.5 hours, and took a 1/2 day Catamaran tour to a private beach all for under $300 total!! Servicios Rizo is the taxi service we used to get to and from the airport as well as visit Tamarindo for shopping. We flew into the Liberia airport.
