This is a wonderful and splendid resort hotel with several large well-kept outdoor swimming pools, lots of shaded lounging areas and great poolside food and drink service. The ocean view rooms have the better outlooks but the hill views from ahigh provide a restful outlook onto the forest canopy below. The array and quality of food and casual and fine...

We had a wonderful week at the Westin Playa Bonita! The rooms are very nice, pools are beautiful and dinners in the asian and steak house where so good! We especially love the Bar Tidal and Maximo was the best! He made sure we always had a refreshing drink in our hands!

Unless your forced to stay here with a group or conference I suggest you choose another hotel in the city. It's inconvenient to get to and to go to anything such as excursions or town. Overpriced for everything. Food is less than adequate. Concierge cannot be trusted for his recommendations and doesn't assume responsibility for their errors. There are many...

This is a beautiful resort. The pools are great for swimming and are beautiful to look at. The beach and water are not attractive for swimming but it was nice to walk and pick up shells. We enjoyed the kayaking. Just be sure to check the times of high tide, because that is when you can kayak. Edwardo the lifeguard...

This hotel has all the makings of a wonderful destination. However it is completely let down by a staff of people who were consistently rude, inattentive, uncooperative, and unprofessional. In the vast majority of places I've stayed - however mediocre the venue may be - great staff make for a great experience, and therefore a great review. This venue is...

The hotel is nice and clean, the food is food and the pool is nice. Lots of chairs in the shade by the pool. The tide is out for most of the day so the entire beach is just muddy sand! No chairs on the beach and it's quite the eyesore when the tide is out.

The experience and the attention was excellence from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. What impressed me the most was the attention to my mother. The details given to her the entire week, and to top it all the flowers and the especial card that touch all of my family heart.
