We went with 2 other couples in July. It was so nice! Highly recommend the Royal Beach Club!! They make you feel very special, you don't have to put towels out to reserve a spot by the pool, very quiet there. nice happy hour in the club house. Venicio was our bar tender, and he was so wonderful!!!! Always a smile, always a drink recommendation, got creative also making us drinks according to our tastes. He really made the trip. The food was excellent and lots of variety! Only drawback was not having water and hot water for hours during the day because they were working on it.

Room tip: Royal Beach Club! you get premium liquor even if you go to the non royal beach club

We stayed at this property from 9/18 through 9/25. I had been here back in 2013 (pre-covid) with a very large group, so I was familiar with the property. It's still gorgeous!

I enjoyed all of the restaurants I ate at - Faisanella, Manglar, Bamboo, Spirula (the pizza), Caracola, El Ranchito, and Mitra (the buffet). All the food was good.

As always, the people are very friendly, and I get very used to saying "Hola, amigo!" to everyone. The pool is still fantastic. The beach is public, but when you go during the rainy season as we did, it was fairly quiet. ("Rainy" season simply meant that occasionally it rained for a bit, so it was just fine.)

As always, for tours, go see Erik Garcia on the beach!! We did jet skis, private tour for the two of us and a tour guide, and thanks, Alexander did a great job! We also did ATVs - another private tour. Both tours were great! Erik offered us others but we were sort of avoiding long trips due to covid.

When I went in 2013, there was a lot more nightlife. The Imperial Bar is closed currently, and even the one remaining bar was closed by 9:30. So right now, if you are looking to party, it's more of a quieter place. But that's the world now. Still highly recommended!!! Easy to do all the covid-prep stuff such as a test, they clean pretty much everywhere, our room was very nice and right next to the pool. Loved it, will go back if and when we can afford it. ;)

Room tip: Building 37 by the pool was also right near the restaurants.

We booked our stay thru Namu Travel Group, who helped us with everything prior to our stay. Booked Diamante Eco Adventure, transportation from airport to resort and back to airport for departure. Also arranged our Covid Test on site. The Westin was a beautiful resort. Due to Covid we had to wear a mask except at the pool, beach, and at our table while eating or drinking. This is a country requirement due to many not being vaccinated yet. The food at the buffet was always good. We were not disappointed. We ate at Spirula one night and it was good. Room service was also good. It was about a 45 min wait for food but we were told that when we called so there were no surprises when we ordered on other days. I asked for coffee every morning early and it was always brought hot with hot milk. Our first day on the beach, Erick approached us offering excursions. We had one booked already through Namu so we wanted to go on ATV's . He offered us a 3 hour ride, 1 machine - 2 riders, for $100. My husband drove and I sat on a pad on the back. This was a great adventure with Santana Tours. Elanso was such a great guide. He answered our questions and told us a lot about the area. Our regular room service person, Jose, connected us with his brother, Jeiner, who took us around for souvenir shopping. He took us to Playa Flamingo to show us a really nice area on the beach and a villa rental that we went inside for a tour. This may be a new place to stay for our next visit. We didn't find much to do at the resort because Covid closed some bars that would have been fun to hang out at. The pool bar and buffet bar were the only 2 open but we could not sit at them. Swim up bar would have been fun but again because of social distancing it was to go only drinks. Wildlife was fun to see on the resort and we woke up each morning and listened to the howler monkeys. The vacation satisfied our purpose. Relaxing, seeing sites, and shopping.

We had a fantastic week at the Westin. What a perfect place to relax in a marvelous property with a huge pool and poolside bar surrounded by tropical birds, lizards, monkeys, and other assorted animals. The Pacific Ocean and shell beach is only yards away, along with snorkling and massages (ask for Sophia, she'll certainly ask for you). When you get bored of paradise, you'll absolutely need to head for the rainforest and/or participate in many of the available water sports.

We hired Andrei at Conchalfun as our guide. Leave the details to Andrei, and hike to unique waterfalls and watch volcanic waters mix with fresh tributaries to form suspension blue streams. Meet amazing wildlife including monkeys, sloths, colorful birds, butterflies, and iguanas. Jet ski, learn to surf, snorkel with tropical fish, ride a horse, zoom down a natural waterslide, and relax in thermal baths.

Don't forget to bring lost of suntan lotion and every bathing suit you have!

Not what we expected. We were on our honeymoon and got the more expensive package. They promised fruit and champagne on arrival, we did not receive that. We waited for our room with our bags in a communal hallway. The
Bathroom we could change in was gross. The adults only pool did not even have towels. We stayed a day and gave it a chance but ended up switching hotels. I wouldn’t go back and I would not recommend. The beach is gorgeous but you don’t even get a drink or a chair. The reviews look misleading. Stay elsewhere!

Room tip: Don’t stay here
