Read the reviews, check the ratings, make your decision based on hundreds of reviews.

Personally, I have no doubt Le Meridien is the best based on the trip reports and the facilities (not to mention the higher price point compared to the other SPG properties - there's a reason for that).

That being said, we're staying at the Westin for 2 days (fewer starpoints) and then the Lagunamar for a week (timeshare). The Meridien is the place to stay if you have money to burn, but with a family the lagunamar makes much better sense.

Good Morning,

We have stayed at the Hilton for 8 or 9 years. We really love it! Great staff huge pool and beach.If you are Hilton gold you will get breakfest with your room. We like the Junior Suites because of their huge deck and jacuzzi.If you golf they have their own course.

A Jr Suite at the Hilton is really nice. Two separate rooms, and a huge patio/balcony that is about 15x50 feet with a whirlpool tub. Pools are awesome, staff is super friendly, restaurants are varied and good (not cheap but not outrageous), and the beach is nice. The only downfall is that is it a cab ride or bus trip to the main touristy areas. The bus is cheap though and they come often.

I recently stayed at Meridien and found it to be quite mediocre. As you see from the reviews, the pool is mostly overshadowed by the construction and the beach has completely eroded. I did walk by the Lagunamar and thought it looked really nice, and was in a better location close to Isla shopping center.
