Enjoyed my stay at this Westin hotel in Puerto Vallarta.
The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are nicely furnished. The Heavenly bed is indeed heavenly providing a wonderful nights sleep. Their bathrooms also have a heavenly shower. A very nice feature. I think most rooms have a balcony which was a nice treat if you are able to get a view of the ocean. Breathtaking. I found the service to be adequate. Front desk, the Bell Captain and concierge were very attentive and super friendly.
Its quite far from most of the downtown activity in Puerto Vallarta. About a 15-20 cab ride. The location is at the marina and as a result you must walk a bit out of your way to find different restaurant options. There is a mall (really overpriced stores, deals are scarce and hard to come by) about 5 min cab ride away.
The set-up in the room. The bathroom looks really nice with a nice tub and a glass stand up shower. However this bathroom has an interesting set of double windows that open up between the bathroom and the bedroom.These wooden set of windows fold out and can be opened from the outside as well as from the inside the bathroom. I really did not like this as at some point as was joined by a friend and we both found this awkward and lacking privacy. It might be all-right for couples that have no privacy concerns but challenging for anyone else.
The services available throughout the hotel from the spa to the massages, I found to be quite overpriced. It is a beautiful property but I felt they could have more completive prices. I had one there and it was very good but still overpriced. For the rest of my stay I went downtown and received amazing massages from certified masseuses for a quarter of the price. Just a thought.
As for the eating options. For a hotel this size it shockingly only has 1 restaurant. Which has a very limited menu and I must say, and very slow service. The food was good and a bit overpriced. Once again you will find better variety and amazing service downtown PVR. The hotel also has a bar on the main level and another swim up bar the closes quite early.
Tried out the tennis courts. Found them to be very decent. The hours of availability was not very good. The gym was all right but the hours are also not very good. This gym closes at 10pm! I thought the standard was 24hr gyms, not at this property.
Overall, I did enjoy my stay at this hotel and found it to be pleasant. However when I return to PVR I would choose another hotel that is closer to the heart downtown where there are a myriad of options for dining, exploring and activities. This hotel was very relaxing and very secure. The area is surrounding by the beautiful marina and many other all-inclusive resort style properties.
I would recommend this hotel to families and couples looking for relaxing vacationing.
