Well Done Westin !!! PURA VIDA !!!

Alberto Cortés our Westin Experience Specialist was amazing and made our vacation truly memorable!!!! Thank you ALBERTO!!!!!

The resort at Playa Conchal was superb. The resort is absolutely beautiful!! We loved it’s lush forest and tropical surroundings. We had a suite at the Royal Beach Club which was unbelievable. The room had 2 full bathrooms (one with double rain shower-heads) and a large balcony with a bathtub! I would highly recommend upgrading to the royal beach club. Having a concierge available to make dining reservations and help with any day to day needs was such a luxury. It was nice to have access to the adult only areas and have more dining options for breakfast and lunch.
The restaurants fill up quickly, so make reservations early. I was a little disappointed with the French restaurant which is open air (no air conditioning) and found it quite hot, however the food was very good. I liked the Bamboo restaurant (Asian themed) the best. I enjoyed the variety of options for dining, with something new to try each night. We were impressed with the food and the staff at the restaurants were very friendly and attentive; our drink glasses were never empty and plates always cleared immediately.
Be prepared when you go to the beach area that it’s a public beach. There are no services from the hotel (beach chairs, umbrellas or drinks) and there is a large group of local merchants selling items when you first leave the resort. However, if you say no and keep walking, they leave you alone. We did get a $20 massage offered by the locals and really enjoyed it. The sunsets at the beach are gorgeous and make for great pictures. We also booked the sunset sailing cruise with Panache and it was amazing!!!!
We found the entertainment and activities to be a little boring compared to other places we have stayed.
The pool is beautiful, lots of space to swim and chairs all around. We saw the staff meticulously cleaning it daily.
If you are looking to do any excursions, go see Erik Garcia at the beach. He has connections to everything!! No matter what you are looking to do, Erik will not disappoint!
Overall we had a great and relaxing time and did not want to go back home. This resort is excellent and we would recommend it to other couples! Well Done Westin !!! PURA VIDA !!!

Custom experiences with Authentico Tours.

We spent our first week at the Westin relaxing in their giant pool. The Westin team was extremely attentive. We could not have asked for better service. Make sure you try a chiliguaro! The food was good, not as good as I hoped. I did love the sushi at Bamboo. And the pizza place is great for lunch. This resort feels like it is in the middle of a jungle, so don’t expect a view of the ocean from your room or the pool. Venture out on the beach. We booked a tour through the resort the first day and regretted it. Don’t get me wrong we had a great time but it was pricey and stopped at a lot of trinkets stores. The second week was filled with excitement and laughter thanks to Marizio, owner of Authentico Tours. He took us jet skiing to a terrific snorkeling spot followed by an ATV ride where he shared information about local food and culture. We stopped by Cerveceria Independiente brewery and enjoy a craft beer before ending our day in a infinity pool overlooking the ocean at sunset. If he takes your here you have to try the tuna tartare! We wanted to see what the nightlife was like, but we’re not comfortable going out by ourselves. Marizio took us out to a local spot in Potrero where he and his friend gave us dance lessons.

The Staff Matters

The Westin has a beautiful golf course and the hotel grounds have a jungle feel. The pool is huge with plenty of room for everyone. The food is on the upper end of all inclusive resorts we've stayed at. But there is no ocean view. You need to go out onto the beach to actually see the ocean. That being said the beach is amazing.

Two things. It's public so the hotel had no seating on the beach. The most important thing. If the locals say it's not safe, stay out of the water. We were nice enough to get a warning. It looked so calm but we took the advice, unfortunately we hung our stuff in a tree at the top of the hill about three feet off the ground. The ocean looked super calm. About four minutes later we were wet while walking and our stuff was out to sea. We watched multiple people that didn't listen to the locals get helped by those same locals.

Back to the hotel. It's an ok hotel as far as look and feel. But the staff makes all the difference. I don't care where you are, the staff genuinely cares about your experience. From the check in to the servers the staff was all 5 stars. Some helped with our Spanish and they all have their own personalities. So if you want to joke there's somebody that will joke with you. If you want to be serious there's somebody for that too.

The hotel does a good job of trying to keep your business. Brasilita is just a short walk down the beach but you'd never know if you weren't told. Everything at the hotel is expensive so for sunscreen or sandels the walk is worth it. If your looking for a tour that is designed for you I suggest Marizio Silva on the beach. If you book with Marizio he's the guide and can change the tour according to your desires.

End of a Great Vacation - Pura Vida!

We almost didn’t move forward with booking our trip to Costa Rica, but I’m so glad we did! We truly had an amazing time at this hotel even with a few bumps upon our arrival.

We booked a king size bed and this was confirmed during check-in. While taking the shuttle to our room, we overheard a couple complaining about how they were originally given a two double-bed room despite paying for a king bed, but the changes were made and they were satisfied. To our surprise
we walked into our own room to see two double beds. I immediately called concierge which told me rudely, “We don’t guarantee any rooms”, which I disagreed because my reservation confirmation and the check-in both said king bed. The lady said their was nothing they could do until the next day, “No rooms available”. Again I stated it was unacceptable and she put me on hold for about 15 minutes, so we took all our luggage and showed up to the lobby. We were given the same story, but after 15-20 minutes they miraculously found a room for us. All that matters was the situation was rectified the same day.

Fortunately this is the only truly negative thing that happened while we were there. The resort is absolutely beautiful, I loved it’s lush forest and tropical surroundings. Spotted many iguanas, coati, and even a howler monkey. We were impressed with the food, ate once at Las Candelas and Manglar, which both require reservations, but pretty much stayed at Mitra buffet, Spirula, El Ranchito and Caracola. Plenty of flavorful food and variety of voices. We didn’t get to try Faisenella (Italian restaurant) but we heard many great reviews of the food. The staff at the restaurants were very friendly and attentive; our drink glasses were never empty and plates always cleared immediately.

We found the entertainment and activities to be a little boring compared to other places we have stayed, we are in our early 30’s and look to have fun. However we were told by many people that it was still early in the season and that the entertainment def picks up more towards Christmas. The pool is beautiful, lots of space to swim and chairs all around. We saw the staff meticously cleaning it daily. Bryon at the pool bar was super nice & friendly, made delicious drinks, and he recommended many local spots for us to check out. Beach was gorgeous, sunsets there are
stunning and make for great pictures.

If you are looking to do any excursions, go see Erik Garcia at the beach. He has the connection to everything!! We booked two awesome trips with him. First hiking thru Tenorio Volcano National Park to Rio Celeste, absolutely beautiful! Tour of sloths, saw many sloths including a baby one which they say is rare to see. Rincon De La Vieja volcano with mud bath and thermal hot springs, awesome to see and super relaxing.. I slept very well that night. Be prepared, they don’t call it the RAINforest for nothing. Even with some rain, the experience was totally worth it and I highly recommend this tour. We also did the Sunset Catamaran with snorkeling. The weather was perfect and the views of the sunset on the water is absolutely stunning! Many things to see if you follow the guide. I had so much fun on this trip especially because I got to see a sea turtle. No matter what you are looking to do, Erik will not disappoint!

Overall we had a great and relaxing time and did not want to go back home. This resort is very good and we would recommend it to other couples and family!
