    Best Value for All-Inclusive Stays!

    The resort was beautiful, with extremely friendly staff. The rooms were nice and spacious. Howling monkeys could be seen in the trees, and iguanas roamed the grounds. Guests enjoyed an abundance of food and drinks. The restaurant services were courteous and professional. It offers the best value for all-inclusive stays.

    Best trip ever!

    The resort was beautiful. Staff were extremely friendly. Rooms were nice as one can expect. My family enjoyed seeing the howling monkeys up on the trees and iguanas walking around. Michael Jackson show is a must. My advise would be to reserve your dinners at the restaurants once you have your dates for the trip. Service was kinda slow but food was yummy. If you’re going to do excursions, go out on the beach and look for Eric Garcia in a blue Google shirt. His prices were very reasonable and he made sure my family was taken care of. We did the waterfall and zip lining. The hike to the waterfall was beautiful. Eric was also able to get us a transfer to the airport at the end of our trip.

    Fun stay at the Westin.

    Beautiful resort with lots of wildlife. We enjoyed the walking trails and evening entertainment. Our room was clean and spacious. The restaurants were good and provided great service. It is a big resort but have good carts to help with getting around. Beach is small but we enjoyed it. My 13 year old rented the boogie board everyday and loved the water.

    Amazing Honeymoon!

    My husband and I stayed at the Westin for a week for our honeymoon and had a perfect trip from start to finish! All the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were spacious and very clean. We ate at Spirula, La Sabana, Manglar, Bamboo and Fainsella throughout the week- Bamboo was by far our favorite. Make reservations in advance on the app to ensure you get the seating time you want! We spent every day on the beach. There were gentlemen available to bring seats to where we wanted them without a problem. Before entering the beach, there were (included) non-motorized activities to rent- bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards, snorkel gear. They were easy to rent when we wanted them and there was assistance bringing the larger rentals down to the waterfront. Once on the beach, there are many women offering massages for $40/hr, we did it a few times and were always very impressed. I think a massage in the spa was over $200, and you can't beat the convince of getting a message on the beach between dips in the ocean. For airport transportation, an ATV tour, jet ski rentals, and a horse ride on the beach we used Erik G right at the entrance to the beach. He wears a blue "Google" shirt, you can't miss him. He was great-answered all of our questions, stayed in contact to confirm reservations times, and his prices were extremely reasonable. Check him out! We can't wait to return to the Westin in the future!
