Westin Royal Beach Club Rooms?

I just read a review referring to someone who had a suite with a poor view of the unlandscaped hill and the furniture was very uncomfortable. We have booked a regular room in the Royal section and I was wondering if anyone can make a suggestion on what room location I could request that would give me a better view etc?. The reviewer loved the resort otherwise. We are only staying for 3 nights so I don't want to waste time changing rooms. Thank you in advance. We are also SPG members and I'm not sure if that gives us any advantage for room requests.

There aren't really any Royal rooms with great views. You're either facing the pool area, the hill, or some of the regular resort units. There might be a few that face the lagoon, but I think the view might be blocked by trees.

When are you going? I'll be there from Feb. 9th to the 16th, so I can check it out.

We will be going mid April. It would be great if you posted any recommendations when you return. We have never booked for such a short period of time but we are doing 4 nights in Arenal area for the proximity of the tours , followed by just 3 nights R & R at Westin. Can't wait! We had friends who stayed 2 weeks around Christmas and loved it .

The best views are facing the golfcourse in the non-Royal rooms.

We are in the Royal Rooms. Friends of ours like Tower 2 on Second floor. Any difference between the towers location? We just have a regular room and I think they had a suite.

2 weeks at Xmas at the Westin in a Royal Suite? Nice to have that kind of $$$. 2 weeks over Xmas in 2013 is $22,600 for two, according to the Westin web site.

Are they looking to adopt a 60 year old?

Just got back from the Westin, and I checked out the views from both Royal Beach towers.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of good news. I was thinking that maybe there were some golf course views from the 3rd floor, but there are not.

Your choices seem to be:

1. Pool view

2. Unlandscaped hill

3. Facing towards the non-Royal units

4. There are a few units in Tower 1 that have lagoon (really a big pond) views.

I'd likely choose #4 followed by #3, but maybe the most important thing is whether you want sun (or shade) in the morning or afternoon. It's one or the other.

Response #7 has a map. Could someone point out the timeshare section using the key on the map? I understand they have only 12 timeshare units.

Also, can someone tell me which building the casino is in using the key on the map?

The timeshare building is building #6. Quite frankly, it's the best location in the entire resort. There are actually only 7 timeshare units, 6 studios and 1 one bedroom. They are adding another one bedroom, but I don't think they have done so yet.

There is no casino.
