Puerto Vallarta hotel with modern style and true resort experiences
The Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta maintains a tranquil setting, even with all the activities hosted on the site. Lagoon-style pools -- complete with a swim-up bar -- and outdoor restaurants take advantage of the stunning beach and ocean vistas. Rooms favor contemporary furniture and brightly colored accents. For parents, a supervised club for children 4 to 12 translates to more time at the spa, nearby golf courses and tennis courts.
Highlights
  • Contemporary rooms with pool- or ocean-facing balconies
  • Alfresco dining
  • Lagoon-style pools with swim-up bar
  • Club for children ages 4 to 12
Rooms
Clean lines, tasteful fabrics and modern furniture capture a contemporary look synonymous with the Westin brand. Luxurious white linens complement with color, including red walls and copper throw pillows and amber-shaded lamps. Sleek media cabinets and headboards create symmetry for the space. Guests shift to full relaxation mode with amenities such as ocean- or pool-facing balconies, Heavenly Bath products, satellite TV and mini-bar. Wi-Fi is standard.
Features
Parents rely upon the kids' club, a year-round program open to children ages 4 to 12, for daily supervised activities. A typical day has children taking part in craft-making, pool aerobics, movie-watching and more (fees apply).
For adults, the recreation menu is just as rich. Visitors might start at the outdoor lagoon-style pools (complete with swim-up bar), play a match on the tennis courts, enjoy a black-mud wrap at the spa or work out on the Life Fitness machines in the gym. Golfers can also request to have tee times scheduled at four nearby courses.
Dining
Atmosphere plays a big role in the dining experiences at The Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta. Arrecifes Seafood & Steakhouse tempts guests with fusion cuisine and tables located under a thatched roof by the beach. El Palmar Restaurant, the all-day buffet, entices guests with a rooftop terrace overlooking the pools and gardens. Guests can enjoy the bar at La Cascada International Bar, where seasonal music and flat-screen TVs provide the entertainment. They can also dine by the pool at Tlaquepaque Bar, which serves light fare alongside tropical cocktails.

Relaxing family vacation

This was our second stay at the Westin in Puerto Vallarta, and it was very pleasant. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very quiet and private. I traveled with my husband, son and dog- it was by far the most pet friendly hotel in Vallarta! They do not charge you a pet fee or clean up fee. We had the royal beach club suite and that was very nice as usual. The pools are always clean and spacious, and the beach is only a few feet beyond the pool area. The only reason I gave the Westin 4 stars is because the food is not good. The restaurant, El Palmar is okay, but the quality is not 4 stars. The breakfast and cocktail hour is very convenient for families, however, the food was either a hit or miss (it has a very repetitive menu). Breakfast is okay, but happy hour food is sometimes old. The best part about royal beach club is that you get unlimited well drinks. Overall, the Westin is a very nice hotel which is extremely family and pet friendly; however, the food is not 4-star quality.

Eat at La Langosta Feliz! It is by far the most delicious seafood restaurant in Vallarta and it is very affordable! (Get the 3 musketeers platter & try the sweet corn ice cream) you'll want to travel back to Vallarta just for this!

great vacation!!

The hotel is in a great zone. You can walk to the marina and have great restaurants. Taxis are super available if you want to go further to downtown or the malecon. The food is a little overpriced inside the hotel but as I've said, you have great restaurants walking distance. I will defintly come back to the westin. Other thing is that they don't have free WiFi. Now a days people need to check their emails constantly for work and stuff. They charged a lot for having WiFi.

A great getaway.

This particular location is a little too far away from downtown, but the pool and beach made up for it. The service was great and staff is always friendly and smiling never had any problems. When at the swim-up bar order a chi chi its is a delicious vodka drink you will enjoy.

Great Location/Good For Families

My kids and I stayed in a deluxe oceanfront room on the 10th floor. We had a large room with a jacuzzi on the balcony looking out over the Pacific. Kids loved the jacuzzi and the large, shallow swimming pools. We ate 2 meals at Las Palmas (the restaurant near the pools). Food was average at best and pricy. Nice property but too much "nickel and diming" for a 4 star resort. WiFi was not included...phone calls exceptionally expensive...pool floats for kids had to be rented for $10/day. Could have purchased one for that price. C'mon Westin...you can do better. Let the kids play with these for no charge and wifi should be included with a deluxe room!

Great experience in PV in March 2014

This hotel is very well located near the PV Marina. The staff is great and and very friendly and their services are extremely efficient. The grounds are well kept, so are the pools. There are always chairs available at any time of the day. The restaurants nearby have great food of many types. As a preferred customer of this hotel, I will definitely returned. Many thanks to all of those whom have made our 10 days stay so memorable.

Great Hotel, Overpriced Ameneties

The hotel is only about 2 miles from the airport and located on the beach. What a great location!. We rented a car and parking was free. That was the only thing that was free. Our 4 min. 800 number phone call was $4. Internet is $15/day. There is free internet at most restaurants which is where we kept up on most news. Everyone in the entire city is very nice. We walked around the small street downtown and never felt in danger.

Go to the Malecon, or Boardwalk in English. You can't beat the sunset. Free street performers and multiple street vendors. We went there 5 out of the 6 nights we stayed there.
