    First of all, the rating is 3/5 instead of more because we went when the hotel was undergoing renovation. Even though this was brought to our attention when booking through Costco and the price was a little discounted, the details of the limitation were mis-represented and not available on the hotel website and until check-in. The biggest disappointment was that only a couple of restaurants and buffets were open during the entire week which made dining get boring very soon. Access to the royal beach club pool was a saving grace and we did not miss the main pool. The staff was excellent and so was the food and drinks quality. We had read mixed recommendations about tiping and quickly found that it was far from being the norm in the restaurants and bar and sometimes felt akward so we were happy to put that aside and only tip couple of dollars for room service. Don't let the rainy season discourage you from coming in October since most days were dry and we only got a few days with rain or thunderstorms in afternoon or evening and there was no crowding anywhere during our stay. The coatis, iguanas, howler monkeys and other flora and fauna only added to the fun but there are mosquitoes too so nice to pack some repellant. The hotel staff seemed glad to arrange beach chairs outside their beach gates and access to drinks was easy. Horse back riding and water scooters activities can be purchased from the vendors at the beach who are gracefully non-pushy. We did use a guy at the beach (Aaron since the more popular Erik was absent) to plan our excursion but later found that Costco's Destination Services would have been cheaper and probably better organized. Also the beach guys big markup if paying by credit card instead of cash seemed shady. So better to do some shopping around before booking excursions. All in all it is a beautiful country and people.

    The price was very high, but you get what you pay for. The resort was amazing with great food. We tried to venture outside of the hotel to do activities, and it was not centrally located to anything, but I don't think anything is in Costa Rica. I would stay here again for a very relaxing vacation.

    A wonderful all inclusive with activities for the whole family

    We stayed here with our daughter, age 13. Every one had a different favorite restaurant on property and enjoyed several active adventures. We booked everything through the hotel or the gentleman out on the beach —- AT. Rentals, horseback riding on the beach and a jungle river tour. The monkeys on property were a favorite!!! We loved all the little details like how the cleaning ladies made animals out of the towels.

    Great time at Westin Resort this was our second time.
