I stayed at this wonderful hotel as the pièce de résistance of my week (12/25-12/31) in Guatemala. I typically low end it during my "adventure" trips and then stay in a mid to high level hotel on my last day. The Westin Camino real fit the bill. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel as well as the service. My room (628) was impeccably cleam and inviting. And OH THAT BED. Also a part of my ceremony of capping off my stays I always include a massage. Although the spa/fitness area was more than enough the actual massage was a disappointment. I am the queen of massages and rapid hand movements is not a technique in a deep tissue massage. Besides that quality of the massage the other less enjoyable aspect was the unavailability of WIFI in the rooms. No hotel of this quality should charge for internet services. But lets get back to the high points. I was also surprised to find that the gift shops were extremely reasonable (cheaper than) compared to the price of gifts in the rural area. They are also cheaper than the gift shops across from the hotel. Another plus is the smell of the hotel. I know that sounds a little wonky but Im a smeller and moldy or wet smelling hotels are an indication of a bigger unsanitary problem. The Westin takes care to have a beautiful clean aroma in their halls & around the hotel with the use of fragrance fans. This isnt to mask anything odorous but to further add to the ambiance of this clean and bright hotel.
What else..oh I didnt eat in the hotel restaurant. I got a tip from an insider that the food was so-so and that the restaurant across from the Holiday Inn (a block or 2 down the street) served typical Guatemalan food. I tried it and LOVED the ambiance. The food and price was great. I couldnt finish my meal.
