Westin Golf Resort & Spa Playa Conchal
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We ended up here with a decent size group friends (15) for 4 nights and were very satisfied. There were so many great things to do the only regret was not finding more time to just relax at the beach. The best activity we did was a 4 hour ATV tour with Marizio Silva who runs Authentico Tours. He's one of the vendor's on the beach that I've seen others mention on this site and he was so accommodating with our group we decided to book with him. We went to several beaches and into the nearby hills and had a blast. It was great to have him share his genuine love for Costa Rica with us. We also did surf lessons in Tamarindo and a sunset snorkel tour that were great.The food at the hotel buffet was good, what you'd expect at a higher end all inclusive but the restaurant dinners were all excellent. The property is big so there was a lot of walking but it was under nice tree lined sidewalks so it didn't seem like a chore. The size also helped the resort not feel crowded even though there were a lot of people there.The only minor gripes were that the wifi was occasionally spotty, the pools closed about an hour after sunset, and the after dinner drinking options were limited to a single bar so for nightlife we had to head into Tamarindo. Those weren't that important to us but might be to others.Overall it was a great resort and we'd absolutely go back.
We just got back from our first trip to Costa Rica and stayed a couple of nights at this resort. We wish we would have stayed longer. We booked an all inclusive room at the beach club. The room was comfortable the pool area was really nice and the drinks were top shelf. The food at this resort was really good. We had friends that live in Brasillito and took us around the area which is very close to the beach. The beach at this resort is easy to get to however, we didn't take but a quick look at it as we were not there long enough to enjoy it. Also, we aren't really ocean dwellers we are more pool people. The only thing is that to get to the beach you had to wade through the vendors selling their wares however, they really were not all that intrusive like they are down in Mexico so it really was no problem.
The Westin Playa Conchal Resort & Spa was perhaps the loveliest vacation we've ever experienced. We were treated as royalty. The resort is pristine, clean, easy to navigate, and beautiful. The people who work there are some of the friendliest, most genuine and hard working people we have ever met. Our needs, as well as every guest's needs, are met first and foremost. The guest bungalows are stylish, comfortable, and ultra clean. Beds are super comfy. Rooms are delightfully air conditioned. The room mini bar was stocked with beverage's everyday. Room service was amazing. The food and beverage's in the entire resort were top notch. The pool area is beautiful. Towels are provided at the pool. There are restaurants and bars by the pool for convenience. The beach entrance is close to the pool area which is also convenient. The beach is beautiful. The ocean water is warm and beautiful. (I seem to use the word beautiful a lot but it suits the description of this resort so well!) There are chairs and umbrellas on the beach if you choose to use those items and resort staff standing by to help you with the chairs, umbrellas, snorkels, kayaks, or long boards if you are interested in those items. If you are interested in experiencing more of Costa Rica and want to venture outside of the resort, there is a concierge service located in the resort lobby to help you choose your adventure's. There is so much to experience in this beautiful country. We met a local man on the beach. His name is Erik Garcia. He sat with us for a little while and told us about himself, the culture of the country and what it is like to be a citizen there and how he lives his daily life. His stories and descriptions of their culture and what Costa Rica can offer someone were vibrant and we enjoyed Erik's company. He offered his services to help us adventure outside the resort and to go and see more of Costa Rica than just what the resort had to offer, but our vacation wasn't long enough for us to commit to the extra time that those tours would take. When we return to the resort, we will seek out Erik and take him up on his offer. If you visit Playa Conchal, look for Erik on the beach. A terrific man for sure and very trustworthy. If you are concerned about safety in or around the resort, don't be. We felt safe and sound through our entire stay. We walked about at night, even walking the beach at night, and did not worry about our safety at all. There is so many more positive things to say about this place and our experience there. If you're wondering about bringing your children, I recommend that too. Very family friendly but also very adult friendly. We are planning to bring our two boy's next time we visit. they are ages 8 and 21! They will both enjoy the resort in their own ways! We wanted to take home some Costa Rican crafts as souvenirs and found small vendors outside by the beach area. We purchased a few items and felt so happy to give our business to these friendly, talented and hard working local people. There are so many positive things to say about this beautiful place.
My daughter and I had a terrific time at the hotel, but what made it even more special was hiring the local tour guide Marizio Silva. We met him on the beach right outside the Westin property. Marizio did custom tours for us and they were private. We did snorkelling on our own private boat tour with sunset. Just beautiful. Also went to a local river again with our private car and boat. Saw a lot of wildlife and local life. Maruizio treated for lunch at a local lunch spot that was delicious. Maruizio makes the tours quite personal and full of attention to detail. I am so please that we met him. We also did a tour with the company the hotel recommends, but felt Maruizio made a connection with us not just showing us "stuff." Highly recommend. Look for him outside the Westin gates as you enter the beach.
From the moment our driver turned off the road, and we entered the lush grounds of this remarkable property, we were stunned by the beauty of the sprawling landscape. The hills were covered with exotic trees, and the fragrance of lyang lyang flowers filled the air. It was almost sunset when our van pulled up to the open-air lobby where we were warmly greeted by a bellman. Our check-in was easy, and we were able to make our dinner reservations for our 2 night stay here. We were given a welcome drink which was a refreshing combination of strawberry and passion fruit juice with soda water. We could hear hear the sounds of frogs and birds as our shuttle driver, Evaristo, drove us through this incredible resort to our suite. We were thrilled to have such a beautifully decorated suite which we called the "Garden of Paradise". The bed was on a raised level which made it feel like a throne room. The bathroom was roomy and had "White Tea Aloe" bath products. We loved the room service menu especially the "super food" choices. Our dinner was at "Faisanella" where we both had a "filet mignon" with gorgonzola sauce. Our dessert was "panna cotta". When we got up, we were delighted to see a monkey and an iguana in the tree outside our room. We ordered a wonderful breakfast (I tried the Costa Rican breakfast which had "gallo pinto" and a tamale) from room service. Since we had only one full day here we walked around the resort, bought a few things from the vendors at the beach, and had a wonderful lunch at "Mitra's Buffet. We especially enjoyed the grilled tuna. This was our first time staying at an all-inclusive resort, and we can't wait to return and stay longer.
