We have stayed at the Westward look before and just came back from a second stay. I think the people who have posted here complaining about the quality of the rooms, must have stayed in the 'Posada' type rooms near the lobby and pool... When my children were swimming at night, I could see in these rooms which looked much more like a standard Holiday Inn room, plus it's right by the pool which I personally would find annoying to hear splashing and not being able to open your drapes. I think these are the rooms you often get through expedia- Check the website before making a reservation so you know what type of room you are getting.
The suite sized rooms, where as I would not call them luxurious (but you aren't paying that kind of money either) are very comfortable and well done. Very roomy with a decent sized bathroom and a separate dressing/vanity area which I love... plus a very comfortable sitting area. I found both of ours to be very clean- (we had connecting suites for our children... which is a HUGE plus here- not easy to find nice connecting rooms) Ask for an upstairs suite. We were in building 19 and had a great view of a patch of desert from our balcony and then the city lights...
The service in the Grille restaurant was marginal- the waitress actually ARGUED with us when we said our youngest child had asked for fruit, not fries with her dinner and could we have that fixed? I was floored at when she said, "No, she said, fries...Listen, I have it right here..." After I picked my jaw up off of the table, she finally said, "Whatever... fine. Do you need a side of fruit sweety?? I will get that for you..." In a pretty unpleasant tone.
The food was ok- burgers are not very good, overcooked with a dry bun. Decent Veggie wrap and Good cobb salad.
The Gold Room service and food were much better- but expect higher prices.
The only issues I have at this resort... the pools do have many bugs and leaves... they either need to update their filering systems of skim them every few hours.
There are no robes-
There was no conditioner- just Shampoo, shower gel and lotion.
The TV is set into a armoire and doesn't pull out. It's not centered in the room so makes viewing difficult.
All in all- we enjoy the westward look because it's smallish- doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles for children so that limits the number of wild, thrashing kids around. There are no pool slides or waterfalls- Our children entertain themselves just fine in a regular pool, thankfully! My husband and I just can't handle the mayhem of hoards of children at the La Posada or El Conquistador anymore! We found the lower pool to be quite nice, quiet without tons of kids. And I love that the towels are sitting out... you don't have to 'check out' pool towels. This resort has personality-
We enjoy the nature trail... and you can arrange for horseback riding if you wish.
We will stay again... but if it were just my husband and I and were looking for posh we'd probably stay elsewhere. This is just a nice resort with great connecting suites for kids and it has some history and uniqueness to it- good for a nice weekend getaway with the kids or just by yourselves, but for us, we wouldn't consider it for a 'special' weekend...
