Westin Golf Resort & Spa Playa Conchal
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I stayed here towards the end of September. The Westin is a great resort. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the staff was very friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable. There were a lot of food and drink options as well. The beach was absolutely beautiful, but we also spent time in the awesome pool! We were lucky to be there at the beginning of off season so it wasn't too crowded either. The only downfall was that not all of the restaurants were open each day. We booked a trip through GetWet in Costa Rica with Gustavo Peralta. He offers great prices and amazing trips; you can book with him at the beach access.
As an SPG platinum member, I decided to use points at this property for our Oct honeymoon. I had heard good things about the property, and I came with relatively high expectations. The Westin Playa Conchal met and even exceeded many of our expectations. We received fantastic customer service, from correspondence with our Westin Experience Specialist Michelle Chen leading up to our reservation, to our concierge Errol, and support from the Royal Beach Club staff Alberto, Silvia, etc.We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurants and quality of food. In particular we really enjoyed Faisanella, Las Candelas, Cauri, and Catalinas. As others have noted, some meals are hit or miss but that is to be expected at any all inclusive resort. The pizza place by the pool (Spirulla) was pretty good and Bamboo was okay. Not a big deal, we didn't go to Costa Rica for the Asian food! I cannot comment on the Mitra buffet as we didn't eat there, but the RBC breakfast and lunch buffets were pretty good. Again we received top notch service during almost every dining experience.I'm surprised by anyone who says they didn't see much wildlife (unless it was seasonal)--we saw dozens of monkeys and coatis all over the resort, along with a few iguanas and cool birds. I was a little nervous about visiting Costa Rica because mosquitoes LOVE me, but I was pleasantly surprised that I got only about a handful of bites. Still, I would echo someone else's suggestion to bring more bugspray than you think you need.Our suite was beautiful and very clean, couldn't have asked for a better accommodation. We liked the little Bose speaker. As a platinum member we were also able to use the spa facilities (sauna, steam room, pools) which was very nice and relaxing, and unexpected. We did one excursion (the Mega Combo thru Swiss Travel) which was great and let us experience lots of things bundled into one day. Tip: you MUST get off the resort at least once to experience what Costa Rica truly has to offer!No, none of the rooms are right on the beach, but it's a super quick walk--after all you are in the RAIN FOREST... and yes, the resort is spread out but it's totally walkable. The layout preserves some nature for the animals to exist in their habitat, and also helps keep everything nice and quiet (at least in the off-season)!A couple of opportunities for improvement... the minibars in the RBC rooms were nothing to write home about. Would've been nice to have better liquor / a couple bottles of wine. Also the wine at the resort is not ideal. Probably not a big deal to most people but I am a bit of a wino so this was kind of a bummer (and their red wine is typically served chilled, boo!) My husband was also bummed that none of the bars were open late, and we were by no means in party mode. I imagine this was because it was low season / the resort was very quiet, and I think one of the main bars was under construction.Overall a really relaxing and beautiful honeymoon! We didn't even mind that it rained most of the time :) Many thanks to the staff!
I definitely going back to this beautiful resort! A week there was not in off i want it to be longer! I enjoined every day of my stayed! Specially the dinning and the bar! We had a good experience with the bartenders very friendly and efficient! Every restaurant we tried had a great menu and delicious! We meet the executive chef Laurent and he was very nice and professional!
Very professional and courteous staff. The dining staff specially the waitress and waitresses are superb! The rooms are superb! Costco is the BEST when it comes to vacation packages. I could not see any negatives. I would suggest if Westin would upgrade their pools, that would be a plus. The beach was not bad but I've seen better, the property can't change the beach. They have a small beach compared to other places.
The staff at the Westin was extremely friendly. The food was good. The resort was very nice. It was easy to get around by walking and riding in the carts provided by the resort. The beach was nice. Spa service was great. I would definitely go back.
