    As each hotel Westin has positive and negative sides. I have been staid in this hotel 2nd time so 7 days in total so I can tell you some things in progress Positive things – Building itself design and amenities looks new interesting and are comfortable to me.  One  of the controversial thing is bathroom doors and "window" between them –don’t think about privacy in the bathroom, people in a room will hear you and every sound out if you (I've seen a lot of such design solutions in resort hotels before).  Sky walk connecting hotel with a beach allows you not to cross 4 lane A1A. This hotel way way better then Marriot Courtyard and small 'no-brand' hotels Housekeeping is doing better than they were during my first stay, bathrooms and floor are cleaner (there are some space for improvement of cleaning water sports at rain shower) , public zones are always clean. The restaurant Lona Cocina Tequileria– just visit it and try everything. It is real 4* bar with interesting design of all internal zones, great Mexican cuisine, with affordable prices. $70 for two with drinks, and you are all set with tasty healthy not too greasy and not too spicy food.  Pool bar is good too, but I'm not a big fan of drinks from soft plastic cups. Speaking about the pool area. Towel station is open from dawn to dusk, with the friendliest employee in this hotel - Judy. She really loves her job and sincerely wants to help the guests to have the best time. She shows care every second you interact with her.  Most of the front desk staff are positive and try to be very helpful. Negative sides Run, run away from  4th and 5th floors of North Tower, change room immediately.  Ocean view side will be noisy from the bar and pool, ocean view itself- debatable, you will see a lot of ground infrastructure. The opposite side has…  WALL view. Yes yes just 5 foot (1,5 m) from you window there will be a wall of Hotel's Parking. They decided to pack the hotel with room view which 4 * hotel Westin's level try not avoid. There is no special rate for Wall-view on Marriot booking site or other online booking servies, they sell them as regular one. Breakfast itself is very tasty, pay almost $30 plus taxes and fees for the full buffet or choose from menu, but Breakfast managers suck. For example, when I came up to the breakfast area, the hostess was away with other clients, the manager was sitting, looking at me and ignoring me while I was waiting for anyone to help me. They don't train hostess or waiters properly. Will I stay in this hotel next time? – Yes, because this is real resort and I hope they will improve service, and it's a good value for money.

    Awesome hotel with great service!

    Perfect place to stay for our anniversary trip! Tashelle and Hannah were so welcoming and nice upon check in. The restaurant in the hotel had great food, excellent beach access and close to lots of other restaurants and shops along the beach front. Would definitely recommend staying here!!

    All in one: quiet and clean hotel rooms, great pool, direct beach access, best restaurant

    We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It looks new and comfortable, combination of modern design and wooden desktops and details make it cozy. When I was on my floor I felt like I'm away of all busy conference-zones. The Westin is one of the two hotels, which have sky-walk to the beach above the road. You you don’t need to cross the road or leave the hotel area at all. We even did not leave the hotel for lunch or dinner, the restaurant Lona located in the hotel looks very modern and offers top-notch Mexican cuisine for a reasonable price (for us it was $50-60 for lunch and around $80 for dinner). It's really tasty. Steak fajitas was my favorite. The employee service was not fantastic but good. The waiters at the restaurant were very nice and helpful. The best service however was provided at the pool by Judy and Gerald. They cared about every guest and all lounge chairs around the pool were covered with towels with small towel-pillows made for comfort. Judy always sincerely smiles. When we went to swim in the ocean and left our belongings, it started raining and she kindly saved our books, phones, and shades from the rain. Cold face towels they offered to us during hot days helped a lot.

    GREAT SERVICE AT THE POOL. Brought us ice water, served drinks and snacks. And the best part was Judy M. Her service was extraordinary. Perfected our towels on the lounge from blowing away in the wind, moved us to the best spots when they came available while we were at lunch. Overall just incredibly kind. She loves her job and it comes through in her five star service. Thank you Judy!
