“Great Hotel”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

We spent a week in this hotel after a week of touring through Costa Rica.
The rooms are located in bungalows and are just fantastic: very spacey with 2 twin beds, a sitting area and a walk-in wardrobe. The hotel has 6 à-la-carte restaurants for every taste. Dinners will never be boring.
the hotel landscape is very widespread but constant shuttle service makes it easy.
You will also be suprised by the wildlife sharing the landscape with you: Howler monkeys, scuirrels, racoons and....plenty of coatis.
Just enjoy it!

The service is top notch at this hotel, everyone working at the hotel treated my wife and I with great service the entire stay. I would not classify it as a Five Star Hotel but it is definitely a wonderful hotel.

I will not duplicate many of the comments made before such as the dinner reservation system, etc. The buffets at breakfast and lunch provide plenty of good (not excellent) food and the only dropoff in cuisine are the desserts ---- none, even at the restaurants were divine.

Only real complaint was waking up early Friday (1:15am) to the sound of pesticides being sprayed. It woke up both of us with a loud sound. We complained at the time but I never heard from management after the call.

Eric Garcia. There have been a number of comments about his service providing off-grounds trips around Costa Rica. His business is located outside the property at the beach and is not affiliated with the Westin. Although his service is at a lower cost and provides some trips others can be booked directly through the providers themselves where he is only a broker. Our complaint with Eric is that we booked a Thursday whitewater rafting trip and his team made a mistake and scheduled it for Friday. Friday was our last day and we wanted to relax but this caused us to get up early (6:00am) both Thurs and Fri. Bit frustrating to wait for a transport that does not arrive. Eric's response: "we made a mistake". No discount for the trouble. Nothing. Takeaway: CHECK YOUR RECEIPT! (of course we're on vacation and should not have to worry).

Unfortunately the hotel is a bit far from everything. It does take 90 minutes plus to arrive at any attraction or "thing to do".

However.....if you are looking for a place to come, relax, and enjoy a week and not worry about too much this IS a great place.

Room Tip: Do get a room between the pool and the shops. It is easy access to the workout facilities, buffet...

My family of 4 just came back last night from The Westin resort.
The resort is huge, but most of the activities and restaurants are near the main pool, the beach is nice but we spent most of our times floating around pool. We also rented jet ski for an hour with the local vendor that is located right on the beach. Also wanted to say thank you to Erik Garcia and his crews for a fun and exciting time for the horseback & Palo Verde river cruise excursions. Thank you to all the friendly staffs that have made our vacation a memorable one :)

The rooms were beautiful with marble tile and a giant marble shower! The room service was great and we really enjoyed riding around on the taxis they had to take you from place to place. The private beach was beautiful and we enjoyed the little shops the locals had set up. All in all, it was one of our best vacations yet.

Costa Rica is one of the best destinations in the world and the Westin is a great representative of that friendly, classy hospitality. I stayed at this resort in June and even though that is the rainy season and bugs came out in full force I had the most positive experience staying at this resort. The people were friendly and willing to assist in any way they can, just the most beautiful people I had ever met. The resort is all inclusive, the restaurants were great the food was of high standard for an all inclusive. The rooms were spacious the beds were comfortable as expected from a Westin resort and I love that room service. The only con is that the resort is very large so you have to get a shuttle to get around but I didn't mind, the shuttles were efficient and you get a chance to chit chat with the staff who were very accommodating. As far is beaches go it's not the Caribbean but no one goes to Costa Rica to sit on a beach. This resort is worth every penny.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the beaches request a room in that area. The hotel is large.

My Mom was turning 85 so she took nine of us to Costa Rica to celebrate her birthday. The Westin was a wonderful choice as it suited a variety of ages (16 to 85) and a variety of interests. Some of us loved the pool and some of us loved the ocean. The resort is very clean and we felt very secure and safe. The staff are amazing and are so friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic. We ate in every restaurant except one and it was not difficult to make reservations for an early seating (6:00). We liked the Latin American Restaurant and the Mediterrean Restaurant the best. The wildlife was abundant and so much fun to watch and hear. We strongly recommend seeing Eric Garcia (red shirt) on the beach to make arrangements for tours. He and his staff (Pablo and Nicho "Mitch") were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend the Palo Verde boat tour. A special thanks to Mitch who took us on a couple of hikes and introduced my husband to his family. His generosity, smile and kind spirit will always be remembered. The country is beautiful and so are the people. Thank you so much for a trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: If you have limited mobility ask for a room near the restaurants.

This place is amazing. Anything and everything you need. The beach was beautiful, pool was huge and clean. Our room was perfect, with a marble bathroom to die for. The staff - just incredible and more than accommodating. We even (unfortunately) visited the clinic (my husband got sick at the resort we went to previously), and the doctor was great! My biggest complaint would be the hotel guests themselves! The snobbiest, rudest group of people everrrrrr. No wonder why other countries hate Americans - we saw it first hand. I guess that's what you get at an expensive resort :-/.
