SCAM and UNETHICAL! Stay far far away!!!

STAY FAR FAR AWAY!!! These people are crooks and unethical as hell. They will lure you in with promises of things and you get NOTHING!

We did a scratch off winning a prize, to claim it, all we needed to do was take a taxi to the property(pd for by them) and we would be treated to lunch and be able to use the beach after a 1 hour presentation. We were transported to an office, not on the beach, where we were put in a room, we did not buy and they provided us no lunch, there was no beach and then they made some excuse on why we could not collect our prize from the scratch off.

These people are UNETHICAL as all get out! I cannot believe that they are allowed to operate like they do. They are crooks! We wasted our time and got absolutely nothing but high blood pressure.

I can’t wait for the island to come back to life after the last hurricane! This is our home away from home! The Westin is superb! We are banking our weeks as they rebuild. The people on the island have been thru so much.

Hurricane got this one, won't reopen so don't waste your time, I would post pictures but what's the point, There was a nice casino to go to but not anymore. Supposedly, the property has been sold to Marriott

Great Vacation
Reviewed 2 months ago

What an incredible vacation... with one exception

I'll begin by saying that I spend anywhere from 50-80 nights a year in a hotel. 50 nights at a Starwood property and another 30 between Marriott, Hilton, Melia etc.

When I booked this trip, I was looking for a smoke free resort where I could spend a week eating healthy, getting fit and truly relaxing.

The trip was exactly that! The weather was perfect, you could sit by the pool listening to the sounds of the waves, the gym was well maintained and the food exquisite.

The property is extremely clean. The food is healthy and fresh. The staff are kind and attentive. They even have these great flags on the side of the pool chairs that indicate you would like to order food or beverages. The staff go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure their guests have a luxurious vacation! I've never been treated better by a hotel in all of my years.

I do wish they had higher quality tea and sold Evian.

Here is the one BUT....
On the 4th day, a family with 10 kids arrived at the pool. Within minutes they overrun the pool. Running between lounge chairs, jumping off the edge, screaming, throwing balls. Multiple couples got up and moved .... the kids followed. Had this family been here for the duration of my trip it certainly would have ruined the tranquility I came for.

The Westin could certainly benefit from having someone monitor the pool activity consistently to ensure children are being mindful and respectful of those around them and the property. At one point a family with children even brought out sidewalk chalk. There was a security person, but unfortunately just the one to cover the entire property.

Later on it was discovered that they were actually staying at a motel down the road and paid $25 to use the pool. This is insulting considering guests here pay $400 a night.

TWIST
After checking out, getting to the airport and boarding the plane, the cargo loader drove into the plane creating a hole .....

Air Canada responded quickly and set us all up at the Westin for a night with food vouchers. A big Thank You to Air Canada for setting us up in a nice hotel and not a dodgy all inclusive.

Here's what I observed once getting back to the hotel:
- the Westin was organized and prepared for the 255 guests arriving all at one time on buses
- The line moved quickly
- The restaurants filled quickly and the time to eat was extended but by a reasonable amount of time.
- I was provided a room without a view, which was fine for the night but I will say it is certainly worth paying more for the ocean view. The room faced a parking lot

Great job by both Air Canada and Westin!

Notes:
The weather forecast for the week indicated sun with rain every day. Initially I was very sad that it could potentially rain every day I was here. Other than one day where it was overcast and some light drizzle, the weather was perfect.

The hotel is very well maintained! They have workers who are like chameleons working behind the scenes to ensure the property maintains its standard. The only reason I saw them was because I woke up at 5:30am every day and would see them on my morning run.

If you find your room has a musty smell, it is most likely because the people before you left the balcony doors open. The hotel does take action quickly when this occurs and has blowers to get rid of the smell quickly.
