    Not impressed...

    I was not at all impressed by this hotel. For the price of an all-inclusive hotel ($250/night), I would have expected free wifi and working digital cable. My room was clean but there were dead flies on both beds and mosquitoes flying around. The air conditioning system did not work well either. Laundry was extremely expensive, too. The staff, however, was exceptional. I will not stay here again.

    Fun in Costa Rica

    For an all inclusive resort The Westin was a great place to stay. The hotel was beautiful and facilities clean. The food was ok, some restaurants better than others. Would like more flexibility with restaurant choices. Didn't like having to make our decision on where to eat for the week the first day we arrived, having not even seen the facilities. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to please the guests.

    Awesome resort and friendly staff!

    Loved the natural settings of the resort, the dinner restaurants were great, adults only pool was even better with a bar. Only thing they could have done better was more breakfast and lunch options... dinner reservations need to be made days in advance or you won't get one. The nightly entertainment was limited also. If you are looking for a large beach you won't find it here, but it really is pretty and blue on a sunny day.

    Expect more for 4 star resort, 21 people in my group agree will not come back.

    Pro: -Room clean, resort landscape is nice, employee tried to make you happy but(read cons) -Italian restaurant is very good (read Cons) Cons: -Employee need to train a lot more to be 4 start Hotel( right now they equal to 2 start hotel employee). It took 1 hour 45 min to check in 5 rooms. -Only 4 restaurant for dinner and they are small. Two Italian are good but only 1 of it have AC, Asian restaurant is OK and the worse is Latin American both food and service. -Pool and Pool Bar stop service at 7 pm

    The online photos and description don't do this place justice.

    I’ve traveled to 18 countries, but this was my first trip to Costa Rica. As we planned our vacation, we researched many resorts in the country. We mainly picked the Westin because we’ve had good experiences at other Westin resorts, and we read mainly positive reviews from other travelers. The resort is represented on several travel sites, and they have a website, but none of these really do the place justice. It was even better than we had expected. THE RESORT The resort is fairly large, but they will pick you up and drive you anywhere you want to go if you don’t want to walk. You need only ask. All the grounds are landscaped and well maintained. Our room was clean and was stocked with amenities and a full mini-fridge. Everything was in working order. THE SERVICE The service from the staff was nothing short of spectacular. Everyone was extraordinarily friendly, and it felt genuine and sincere, not like they were just being nice because it’s their job to be nice. At one point I was standing on a resort walkway looking at a map trying to determine which way to go, and a woman on the housekeeping staff stopped what she was doing to come over to me and ask if she could give me directions. Everyone on the resort greats you with a smile and “hola” or “buenos días” as you pass by. I asked for something slightly odd from the room service and the response I received was “no problem sir, you’re the boss here; we will take care of that.” Everyone that you will interact with speaks both English and Spanish. I tipped many resort employees during the week, but I was never asked for a tip, and never made to feel like it was obligatory. I’ve stayed in about a dozen resorts, many with very good service, and I think this resort had the best service I’ve experienced. THE FOOD There is something that everyone will like. In addition to the buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, they have several nice restaurants for evening dining. At least three options are open at all times during the day. You can also order room service. We tried all the specialty restaurants and loved all of them. The buffet food was average to above average… nothing I tried was bad. The specialty restaurant food was all above average to excellent. A few of the dishes that I had would rival some of the best restaurants I’ve visited… and yes, I eat in nice restaurants with some frequency. If you don’t find some food you like at this resort, you’re a food snob on a level I’ve not yet encountered. THE COUNTRY Costa Rica is BEAUTIFUL! It’s a good blend of upscale resorts and modern conveniences, and unspoiled nature. The people are very kind and welcoming. We never felt unsafe in any of the areas we visited. When venturing off the resort, there are several vendors selling items and services, but you will not be attacked with a wave of high pressure selling like some places I’ve visited. Also, I felt like the locals were not trying to scam me. They will bargain and haggle with you on pricing, but I never felt like I was being taken advantage of. It wasn’t a shell game or three-card hustle buying experience. One of the vendors at the artisan tent on the resort property jumped up from her table and ran after a woman because she had forgotten to take her change from the transaction. It’s rare to see such a display of honesty, and this really impressed me. I can’t say enough about the good nature of the people here. I would definitely recommend the Westin resort. I will stay their again someday. Don’t hesitate! Book your trip now.

    Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

    You can save money on dozens of excursions by visiting vendors standing right outside the gate to the beach. Find Eric Garcia (red shirt) and he will do you right. He sold us a zip-line, horseback riding, volcanic hot springs bath trip to Borinquen. The excursions he sells are still insured and ran by professional tour companies. Only difference is that they're cheaper. You will not pay until starting the excursion, so no need to worry.

    Great honeymoon spot

    The Westin was great! We went here for our honeymoon the first week of June and loved it! Costa Rica is amazing and the Westin was a great place to stay. The hotel grounds are very nice and always kept very clean. The staff could not have been friendlier and the food was amazing! Would definitely recommend!
