The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal in Playa Conchal, Costa Rica

Costa Rica is the new playground for savvy travelers, and The Westin Golf Resort & Spa Playa Conchal is a hotel of choice. This exciting and enticing all-inclusive beachfront resort has it all: eco-adventures, spectacular swimming facilities, a soothing spa retreat, a gaming casino, golf and much more. The only thing missing is the absence of ordinary. Behind the doors of the oversize guest rooms, attention to detail and design includes elevated sleeping areas, conversation corners, spectacular views and vibrant artwork. There are accommodations and areas reserved for adults only, as well as amenities designed with families in mind.

Dining options include a mix of settings and flavors, from Far East edibles and Italian specialties to international buffets and casual poolside noshing. There are also a half dozen bars and lounges, including a swim-up bar plus a nightclub and theater. Relaxation is a key element at The Westin Golf Resort & Spa Playa Conchal, with a spectacular lagoon-style swimming pool flanked with palapas and palm-laden islands. A visit to the spa, with its magnificent menu of treatments, will never disappoint - nor will the 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course with its challenging fairways and lush landscape. Tennis buffs can go at it on one of four lighted courts, and those looking to improve their culinary skills can learn how to make sushi from the best chefs around. Make sure not to miss the tango lessons and yoga as well. Inspired by a vision of an extraordinary paradise, The Westin Golf Resort & Spa Playa Conchal is an elevated resort experience.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

We last visited the Westin Playa Conchal four years ago when it was strictly a Starwood property. Since then Starwood and Marriott merged and we wondered how the property would look. (We’ve returned to properties in the Caribbean that had been allowed to go downhill.) The short answer is that the Westin is better than ever with subtle Marriott-style upgrades throughout. We should note that this review is based on a stay at the Royal Beach Club, which features substantial upgrades from the typical ROH accommodations, including expedited check-in, a concierge, Club-members-only breakfast and lunch areas and an adults-only pool. (There are lots of kids in the general area.) Let’s start with the people, which, on our first visit and last week’s, were what made the visit so great. Where to start? We’ll start with Jonathan, who has been bartending at the property 11 years and remembered us from our last visit. He also remembered our adult daughter, who was with us last visit but not this one, when we showed him her picture. Shout-outs to concierges John Bergen and Jeffrie Campos. Best omelette maker: Andrea Loria. Best new bartender: Bryan Bustos. Others included Alvado Elizando, as well as Jose, Alexandra, Rubina and Ricardo. Everyone speaks excellent English and was willing to work with me on my bad Spanish. The food was uniformly excellent. The Faisenella Restaurant offered buffet desayuno y almuerzo (breakfast and lunch) to Royal Beach Club members every day and became a fancy Italian restaurant in the evenings. Both buffets were extensive. As noted, there is an omelette station as well as European, American and Costa Rican style offerings. There are enough restaurants that you could eat at a different one every night for a week, including French, Caribbean, and Asian. At lunch they make a nice pizza. There is also room service available 24/7. There is never a problem getting a table. Note that in Costa Rica the entire beach is public property. We tend to hang out at the pool, especially when there is a swim-up bar, but you should be aware that you have to go off property to put your feet in the Pacific. You will be greeted by some sketch people offering cheap massages on the beach, but they and the various venders are not overly aggressive, and the beach area is totally safe. Speaking of off property, if you eat out one time try Cameron Dorado (the Golden Shrimp) which is a “rustic” (to say the least) seafood restaurant on the beach. It is an 18-minute walk north from the Westin’s beach entrance but they will also shuttle you back and forth for free. See my review of the restaurant. The other off-property adventure I have to mention, is a tour we set up through Erik Garcia. The Westin warns about non-Westin tour operators and probably wisely so but his is the real deal. If you refine your search to the Westin AND Erik (spelled with a K not a C) you will see that he gets rave reviews, which is what we did and signed up. His Tempisque River tour leaves at 6 a.m. (yes, 6 a.m.!) and has you back by lunch. With Alex as our guide and Falcon captaining the boat, we saw: crocodiles, (sleeping) long nosed fruit bats, howler monkeys, iguanas, and at least 20 species of birds. The following sentence is fictional: if one were to ignore the warning signs about feeding the animals and bring along a couple bananas, were you to encounter a troop of White faced Capuchin monkeys they would climb on to your boat, sit on your head or shoulders and take chunks of bananas out of your hand. I suggested an Erik Garcia page for Trip Advisor and if they approve it I will post a bunch of great pictures. Misc. stuff: good Wi-Fi throughout. Bring bug spray. Note the distinct seasonal variations in the weather in this part of Costa Rica. In the dry season the foliage will be less spectacular but you will have sun every day. In the wet season the foliage is better but you will get tropical rains, which typically don’t last. The property is about one hour from the airport at Liberia. I don’t golf but the course looked great and the golfers seemed to love it. Handicapped access seemed good. Our only disappointment was that there were almost no Coatimundi left on the property. Last time we loved watching these members of the raccoon family run around the property in extended family groups. We were told that the population had grown to more than 100 (there are no natural predators at the Westin ~ no Jaguars prowling at night) and they had to capture them and send them off to a nature preserve. I suspect they will be back. But there are plenty of Iguanas around as well as a variety of birds, including Great Egrets, various Herons, Nicaraguan Grackles, and the beautiful blue White-Throated Magpie Jay. The later two will be happy to steal your breakfast if you let them. There is also an extended family of Howlers on the property.

The Westin was a wonderful choice for my sister and I! Wonderful place but remember the beach there is public and you will meet Eric and Guastavo right there offering trips and activities that are just perfect! I heard much talk around the resort with people thrilled with the services these two offered. They are not affiliated with the Westin, but do not hesitate to trust them! Thanks guys!

Our family has been going to Playa Conchal and the various hotel concessionaires established within the Reserva Conchal project since 2001. The current hotel operator, the Westin, does a nice job. When it comes to adventures, some of the best tours we have experienced were orchestrated by Eric Garcia, a local “on the beach” concierge who has lines on everything from ATV’s to Sunset Sailing tours. Eric hooked my son and I up with a little fishing expedition out to the Catalina’s on January 10th. We went in the afternoon with rather low expectations, frankly, but WOW, what a surprise we were in for! Our Captain, Walter, and First Mate, Freddy, guided us to a fishing hole where we caught 8 fantastic yellow fin tuna in less than an hour! Phenomenal! We had a local chef prepare one of the filets for us the next evening and it was the best tuna we’ve ever tasted!! What a beautiful place to enjoy a vacation!

I stayed with my family for a week at the resort and we all had an incredible time! The pool was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff and customer service were exceptional. Highly recommend! The only thing that I wasn’t 100% with was the beach. The beach is public and I felt like I was frequently asked to participate in excursions and buy handmade goods from the locals. I would have preferred that the hotel offered a private part of the beach for its guests.
