Unfortunately we arrived at the Westin on the back of stays at two brilliant Shangri-La hotels. As such, it was easy to find fault - blocked hand basin, a misfitting wardrobe door that caused the courtesy light to remain on, erratic replacement of towels and toiletries, etc. However, we did visit other 5 star hotels and came to the conclusion that location and facilities earned it the no. 2 position.
Key pluses and minuses:
+ Good location, 5 mins from Kuah, the principal town on the island which, hardly beautiful, is an interesting visit.
+ Good choice of food, 4 restaurants and an excellent breakfast buffet.
+ Nice pools and beach.
- Poor soundproofing between rooms and hallway which meant we were awoken every night about 1 am with latenighters returning to their rooms.
- A constant racket of party music from the poolside bar which could heard from our balcony.
- For those with knee trouble or the suchlike, 60 odd steps from the lobby area to the pools.
In summary, it's been okay but would suggest prospective travellers check out Pelangi Beach Resort which clearly looked the best to us and is only 5 mins from Pentai Cenang, the island's 'restaurant row'.
