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.

great service from staff

I go to PV alot and this time I stayed in the Marina area and was glad I did. All the lovely restaurants and the view was fab. It would have been helpful to be able to use a ATM or get money at the hotel so take enough cash. The staff was the best ever. Eat at Dantes.

Friendly Staff

I had a wonderful stay at The Westin. The pool was clean and the room service was awesome. They just didn't have ranch dressing...that would be my only gripe...and that is not a big deal at all.

Do not buy anything from the salesmen on the beach. Take the bus into town and buy everything at the flea market or find an actual store that sells "hand made" stuff for the price that they probably paid for the item.

Nice, but...

Pros: Nice room, great view, clean and spacious. Location is good, there are a lot of restaurants close by. Cons: No wireless internet in the room, only for 15 usd the day. Ridiculous! Elevators, lobby and internet areas were hot

Relaxing Vacation

I really enjoy this hotel. This was my second time to the hotel. The beach is small, but there are plenty of beach chairs and locals come to the beach to offer watersports and excursions. We went on a catamaran ride (soo much fun) and jet skied the first day. The drinks at the Westin are perfect if you like them strong, which I do. They had better drinks than the restaurants in town. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the staff is very accommodating. The workout room has new equipment and offers workout classes. The spa is very nice as well. The only downside was we selected the Westin club that includes breakfast and appetizers. There is a lot of food, just not very good food – it's mediocre at best. They offer appetizers like chicken nuggets the best thing was the coffee and mimosas. I think you'd do better in thier restaurants although because we did eat at the club (breakfast and appetizers) we were often too full to have dinner - so you may save money. The promotions at the beach bar - grilled shrimp and beer were delicious!

When buying something always offer less money. Then walk away and people will end up lowering their prices.

Great location

It's sufficiently far from town as to be able to have a quiet time, and close enough a cab ride to be in the middle of the action. Great combination

Nice

The hotel was beautiful! The lobby and hallways were bright and colorful, everything was open and breezy, and the decor included a lot of art and greenery. The rooms were comfortable, and the view of the pool, beach, and ocean from the private balcony was breathtaking. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. My biggest complaint is that they did not offer free internet to guests. What's worse, the internet was not even reasonably priced: $15 USD for a 24-hour period. Considering that I've stayed in less expensive hotels in Mexico that did have free wi-fi/internet, I was pretty disappointed. I wasn't able to use my cell phone, so e-mail/FB/Skype was supposed to be my way to keep in touch with my kids Stateside and communicate with friends and family who were also in the Puerto Vallarta area. Not having it was a huge inconvenience. As for the location, the Westin in is the Marina, not in downtown Puerto Vallarta. If you're going for a quieter, more secluded setting, then this is it! If, however, you're looking for a good selection of restaurants, shopping, and nightlife, you're going to have to go to the downtown area (the "malecon") to get it - maybe a 20 minute cab ride, a little longer by bus. The restaurants and spa in the hotel were quite pricey, which was only to be expected. So, if you're looking for more affordable places, check out the Marina (maybe a 10 minute walk) or downtown Puerto Vallarta. Favorite restaurants: Victor's Place in the Marina for Mexican food, Cafe de Olla downtown for outstanding Mexican food and strong margaritas, and Cheeky Monkey downtown for their $1 Coronas, $1 margaritas, and $2 drink menu (great place to get the night started!) Also, the OXXO (Mexican version of 7-11) right across the street from the hotel was a lifesaver! We got all our water, liquor/beer, snacks, and several breakfasts of cinnamon rolls and fruit from there.

Take the bus downtown instead of a taxi! Bus fare is only 6.5 pesos, as compared to the 80-100 peso taxi fare. The [unmarked] bus stop is right across the street from the hotel, in front of the OXXO. The bus drivers have change for small bills (20 or 50) if you don't have exact change.

Hey, it's a Westin hotel.

The hotel was great, and there are plenty of things great about Puerto Vallarta, but we were accosted by hawkers literally every 30 seconds.....time share, fishing excursions, other excursions, the beaches are all public and the moment you step on the sand, they fly in like sea gulls. Even at a great beach restaurant on the Malecon, we couldn't eat dinner without hawkers shoving display cases into our faces. It was so bad around the Marina, some fishing charter companies has signs that said "No Time Share Here." Didn't matter because you couldn't get there from here without the "sea gulls" flocking in.
