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.

A bit tired but an overall very good experience

The hotel itself is a bit dated but the staff was very friendly and eager to recommend good restaurants and quick with excellent service at the beach bar. Royal Beach Club is worth the extra expense as you can eat a full breakfast and full dinner with drinks should you desire. My fiancee and I prefer a nicer hotel but this seemed to be one of, if not the, nicest hotel in the marina area.

90 per cent excellent stay

Staff was excellent and helpfull. Rooms were better that the other 2 major hotel chains closer to town. Pool was very clean and received almost hourly checking. Food was excellent and about par for pricing. Only complaint was that the price for HiFi was $15.00 a day as we used it every day for 15 days so it added up. Other Hotels offered free Hi Fi. Would LOVE to go backand wish Wi Fi was sold at a reduced rate.

Nice place

Overall the hotel was very comfortable yet the meals at the restaurant were far drom desirable and over priced. Service was great. One major dissapoinment was the high rates to use the internet service. While most hotels that I have been offer free WIFI, there was a change for using it and it was ridiculous. 5 dollars per 30 min using their computers or 25 dollar to use WIFI on your personal computers per a 24 hour period.

Puerto Vallarta trip

This hotel was very nice. Except for one time they forgot some towels, everything was done very well. The beds are indeed "Heavenly" as they advertise. If only they could control the weather! We had cloudy days and one thrunderstorm, but the warm air made it all worth the trip.

Great couple's getaway

Excellent! Staff very friendly and attentive. Couldn't be nicer. Great location with marina across the street for shopping and many eateries. Try Dante's for a upscale dinner and Victor's for any fish dish!

Take the bus into town. Walk the boardwalk. It's a short ride and only costs about 50 cents. DO NOT STOP IN THE AIRPORT IF YOU AREN"T LOOKING FOR A TIMESHARE! These hackers tell you they are employed by the hotel or the pre-transportation you have arranged. They lie! KEEP WALKING PAST THEM ALL UNTIL you are almost outside and you'll see signs and folks wearing shirts noting what company they work for!!

Westin Puerto Vallarta

Slightly dated but good. The hardwood accents to the room were beautiful. The fresh fruit at breakfast wasn't as tasty as it can be.

Had a blast in Mexico

Pros: ~Staff friendly and helpful ~Fitness center huge with tons of new equipment ~In a gorgeous location and within walking distance to ~Marina (shops & restaurants) ~Pools relaxing (although music horrible 80s love songs) ~Food quality is excellent (breakfast buffet a little pricey, but you can get anything imaginable for breakfast) ~Safe neighborhood ~Short ride to/from airport, and still did not hear air traffic ~Issues handled promptly by housekeeping ~Pool lounge chairs easy to come by, same with beach lounge chairs, cabanas, etc ~Great water pressure in showers & beds are comfy Westin Hotel Beds ~Tennis courts with instructors if you want them Cons: *ABC gum found in hotel room in 2 different spots (which housekeeping quickly removed upon us calling them) *Room was quite dark--not enough lighting--just 4 lamps in main area *No fan in bathroom, so mirrors fogged up quickly and took a long time to be able to see to get ready b/c couldn't see mirror *Taxi or bus ride needed to get into el Malecon/downtown area--but prices reasonable for either *Hotel is past its prime--needs a good update and outside of hotel needs a power-wash and repainting! Lampshades dirty, decor out of style. *Room service slow.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Beware--at Airport when you are going to ground transportation, there will be people "helping you" find a taxi when in reality they are suckering you into doing a timeshare presentation. They will lie to you and tell you it will save you 50% with the VIP card. That VIP card doesn't save you anywhere close to 50%--run far away from them!

Paradise Found

Our annual return to Westin was again worth the cross-country trip. The pool scene is tropical and relaxed, with top-notch service for food and margharitas from friendly wait staff. The room was well appointed with a 7th floor balcony with plush views of the sea below, and downtown Vallarta and the mountains off to the distance. The hotel is in walking distance to the marina, which offers nice restaurants with beautiful views of the boats. See ya next year!
