6/10 Good

Ok
This resort was aesthetically beautiful. However, there isn’t much entertainment during the week. If you’re looking to just relax all week this may be the resort for you. However, if you are looking for entertainment and fun look elsewhere. The one pro is that it is close to the city if you’re looking to explore and hit up the canal or restaurants. All inclusive isn’t really all inclusive unless you pay the “premium price”. Premium includes the ala cárte restaurants and certain drinks. However, the food there is mediocre. So it isn’t even worth paying for the premium all inclusive. The resort also gives the impression that it is a business hotel. There seemed to be a big party of people who were having a convention. Overall, the resort is beautiful but needs work when it comes to keeping guests entertained. Would not recommend for family or fun with friends. More of a retirement resort in my opinion.

Extremely disappointed as a Bon Voyy member I stay at the Westin properties a lot, while the property is beautiful the big pool and swim up bar was closed for the majority of the time we stayed there and nothing was posted on the website informing us of this. The all inclusive that is posted when booking wasn’t included and we had to pay an additional fee at the front desk, when we did at 9am we weren’t allowed to get our bracelet until noon… so we had to wait 3 hours after paying to even get the bracelet. The on site Covid testing took a long time and we had an excursion that day and had to keep our tour guide waiting and it $75 to get the test which didn’t get emailed to us I had to go to the front desk when I got back to get it. The all inclusive bracelet we got then didn’t include anything other than the buffet and “snacks” so ordering French fries and a salad at the bar wasn’t included only a hot dog and hamburger! It’s absolutely absurd that French fries aren’t a snack and included in the all inclusive bracelet. The swim up bar wasn’t open once during our stay and multiple restaurants were booked for private events which again should be updated on the website or sent to those staying so we could make proper arrangements to eat at them per the nights they were even open… we met two other women who had their vaccine card stolen in their room as well and luckily I had kicked most of my things in the safe. No one should feel like that at a nice hotel such as the Westin.

8/10 Very good

My king bed room was nice, spacious and it was clean. There are several pools which is nice. However, there was a wedding and a religious group that had events going on on the property. This added additional people using the pools, management should consider not having "day pass" entry going on as the pool staff was limited, took too long to get drinks and food. Not to mention the entire area was extremely crowded. These events also took the best 2 restaurants off the list and what was left the food was not up to par. This is not my first time visiting this hotel so I am able to make an honest comparison. The Pacifica breakfast buffet was nice, that was my best meal of the weekend.
