Beautiful place - perfect to relax, sip mojitos at the pool and use as a home base for exploring the country. We spent a week here - alternating between mellow days at the pool and beach and taking day trips out to Palo Verde, Monteverde and Arenal. The service and people that work at the Westin made it truly wonderful....

The Westin was amazing! Will definably go and stay again. Rooms: Clean and spacious. Perfectly appointed with all the necessary amenities and nicely spaced out so you don’t hear your neighbors.

This is a huge Property so you need to use the tram service. The Beach is beautiful but rough and stony. It gets deep very quickly and is tough for older people. The 20 dollar Massages on the beach were a surprise and worth it. The food was average at best for a 5 star hotel. We had lunch one...

The Westin has the potential to be really awesome, but it fell short on so many levels. Check in: we booked with Costco and were told that with the executive membership we would be upgraded to the royal beach club. Upon arrival we didn't have any upgrades.
