I visited Westgate South Beach from April 3-6, 2005. The hotel is not luxurious or five star as the advertisement of the hotel would lead you to believe. I arrived at the hotel earlier than the 4pm check-in and they told me to come back within 30 minutes and they would have a room available for me. I arrived back around noon and was allowed to check into my room earlier. This resort does not have any amenities or many activities for children. I was traveling with my ten year old son. During my stay there were no planned activities, however, they do have an activity list which did not include very many things. They have things such as game night etc. The pool at the hotel was our entertainment the whole entire stay. It was a nice pool and it was heated so my son really enjoyed it. The beach is located right behind the hotel so it was very nice to be able to leave the hotel and walk to the beach. We spent a lot of time on the beach. This resort is located on a part of Collins Avenue where a lot of things are not going on. The closest sit down restaurant is Denny's which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Oh, let me tell you that the parking is horrible at this hotel. You can purchase a parking pass for 6.50 a day from the hotel which allows you to park your car on the street for several blocks. There is a small parking lot next to Westgate South Beach but it was full majority of the time and you will spend lots of time just driving around trying to find a parking space.
