The pictures do not do the place justice. Kim Burton the owner was so helpful and kind to help us. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. There was a free shuttle that would take us to the Beach club where there was a pool and Playa Conchal (great beach!). It was so handy to have a beach right at the condo and the view from there was beautiful. The condo is separate from the actual westin hotel but you can eat at the restaurants at the hotel. Costa Rica is a beautiful! My husband was able to catch fish right off shore on the left hand side of the beach. I would recommend renting a car if you want to go to nearby Tamarindo. For a party of eight the concierge was quoting $120 however they were able to find another van for $80 roundtrip. I was glad however that we did not rent a car to go to Arenal or Selvatura Hanging Bridges because the roads were horrible! We used Anywhere Costa Rica which did a fine job.
