The Westin

Roam24749026315 (New York City, New York) on Sep 27, 2023

First I want to start by saying I am writing this in the LIR airport. I stayed at The Westin for 7 days and I can tell you it was one of the best places I have ever been to. The staff is by far one of the best staffs I have ever experienced in an all inclusive resort and I’ve been to quite a few. The food was fantastic since we never had a bad meal in the whole week we stayed. The only thing I can say was the steak house was very busy the night we went and it seemed they were a little understaffed and might have overbooked people as well. The drinks came out slow but the food came out quick but like I said before I never had a bad meal the food was great, it was also very hot in the steakhouse since the fans weren’t working. In my opinion the best restaurant they have is the Italian place that menu was by far better than the others but the other menus were great as well. Also if your by the pool and get hungry at lunch time go see the cheeseburger girl they were one of our favorite places to get lunch the pizza isn’t bad either but I’m from NY lol. If I was to sum up the food, there is no bad place to eat but make sure you go to every restaurant especially the Italian. We also booked the Jetski tour, Arsenal volcano, and the spa through the front desk (There is a man named David on the beach who will charge less but you get less). I recommend booking jet skis through the people at the front desk since we both got our own wave-runners and we’re able to really have some fun with them(Pura vida) the two guides took us to cliff jumping spots, unfortunately we couldn’t jump since it was low tide but we also got to go into a cave and snorkel for a little (if your looking out towards the ocean they take you all the way around the left and back to the right it’s worth the money). I recommend everyone to do the Arsenal Volcano since that was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Just as a warning the drive is far and the roads in Costa Rica are crazy and if you get car sick badly just bring a bag or something. The volcano is an all day excursion which starts at 7:20am and you will get back at 11pm I personally recommend going we got to see lots of wildlife including spider monkeys, howler monkeys(there was two making their noises at each other which was really cool) tarantulas, wild Turkeys, and lots of other birds. Now just to warn everyone the volcano is in the rainforest the rainforest is usually always raining but my group got extremely lucky and had ZERO rain on that side of the country but it did rain supposedly all day back in Guanacaste. The driving to the Volcano was about 3 hours and then they put you into a water ferry which gives you great shots of the volcano. On the way back was only driving since it was very dark but the ride back is honestly not as bad because the guys driving are probably doing double of the speed limit which I don’t mind at all but as I stated before if you get car sick easily make sure you have your plastic bag for the first hour because that road is very unforgiving(I don’t get car sick and I felt somewhat sick). The hot springs were amazing after we hiked the volcano but make sure you bring extra money so you can get some drinks. You do get fed lunch and dinner the lunch is before your hike and the dinner is after the hot springs both were absolutely amazing. I also forgot to add we also did white water rafting through the front desk. That took about 2 hours to get to but was one of the best experiences ever the guides that were with us made it so much better we had a young kid named Joseph as our captain and he dunked us about 4 times so make sure to get Joseph he’s a great kid. You also get food after the rafting and again it was amazing. Every meal outside of the resort was a local Costa Rican meal SO GET OFF THE RESORT. We also did the spa which was great it knocked me out for the rest of the day which is what I wanted. The price isn’t that bad but they are great at what they do, we did 80 minutes and my back and neck still feels great a day later. The only thing is the spa we went to was located in the W hotel since the heavenly spa in The Westin was being renovated, it’s only a 5 minute drive. We also played 2 18 hole rounds on the golf course, the course itself is maintained amazingly well. It’s fairways are wide and the greens are impressively fast (bump and run it). We also rented clubs which was actually great because they give you really nice clubs, we are both lefty’s and they gave us practically brand new Taylor made stealths they also give you a pack of balls for the round so I recommend bringing some extra golf balls from home just in case. Now the best time to play in our opinion would be afternoon. I say this because after 1pm is their twilight which is around 200$ less especially if your renting clubs. We played our first in the morning and our second in the afternoon, the morning round was great and a lot cooler but was a lot more. Other than that there’s nothing much to say the property itself is absolutely beautiful everyone on the staff is great at what they do and always does it with a smile. The only thing we wish we did was stay longer I highly recommend The Westin.

We loved the way it was set up in bungalows but be prepared to bring good tennis shoes or wait for the shuttle the property is huge! We loved seeing the iguana’s everywhere and kowatis. Lots to do on the beach we did the horseback tour just be careful we have owned horses and my husband’s horse tried to take off several times very high strung. Make sure you ask for a super take one! We also did the massages on the beach Sophia was great, a must do it the jet skis that take you to the little island and you can explore the cave and a little sandy beach. Pure Bliss!!

Paradise Hotel

VegasWanderlust (Las Vegas, Nevada) on Sep 17, 2023

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful resort. The resort was lush, clean, and left you feeling like you were in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle … but in a good way . Rather than having typical hotel rooms, you were housed in bungalows and had to walk through the resort to get to the restaurants, beach or the pool. If walking is not your style, they can shuttle you back-and-forth to the different areas. We played golf at their world class 18 hole golf course. Definitely a must for anyone who plays golf. Loved the staff here : Very polite and accommodating. Most of them spoke English. The food and drinks were great . They had an Italian , Asian, seafood, and Brazilian steakhouse restaurant so there’s some thing for everyone. Victor Ortiz at the lobby bar made the best piña coladas and Tamarindo margaritas. One of my favorite experiences was having a massage at the beach by Lehdi, while listening to the sounds of the waves, and the light rain . Would definitely love to come back

Great location and grounds

G6822VLchristopherm on Sep 16, 2023

I was a little skeptical given the great price for an all inclusive but this was the real deal. Rooms were very clean, food (for an all inclusive) was pretty good too. Service was excellent and the grounds were perfect.
