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.

westin

The facilities were very clean. The staff was friendly but the fence between the property seemed unnecessary and to me very RUDE!!! The biggest problem was there is no entertainment on site and that the bar stopped serving really early so no other quests stayed on site later than 5pm..

If you enjoy humid weather

You would really love this spot if you enjoy extra humid weather, since the amenities of this hotel include a huge pool and jacuzzi equipped with a wet bar that you may order the most exotic drinks. 2 minutes away from the beach, and I think in high season, you may enjoy their outdoor restaurant and bar called the nikki beach

nice pool, cstly, too far from downtown

There was nothing wrong with the hotel. The people were friendly and the service was average. Pros: When we went (February), it was very quiet, so it was easy to relax. They have 4 large, nice pools. We were immediately upgraded upon arrival to an ocean view room and it was walking distance to the marina. Also, there is an Oxxo across the street to stock up on beer and some goodies at a cheaper price than getting it from the hotel. Cons: The Melecon (downtown boardwalk) has so much to offer, and that was not walking distance. The hotel's beach is small and unattractive and EVERYTHING at the hotel costs a LOT of money. I have been to Puerto Vallarta before, and if I go again, I will stay closer to downtown where there are more restaurants with things to do and see. I am not an especially snobby traveler, but I was generally unimpressed with the Westin.

Fabulous Setting

The Westin Regina is saved by it's location and it's fabulous staff. The beach and surroundings are beautiful, and the location near the marina is very convenient.The staff is incredible-friendly, helpful, truly kind. [...]the bellman is the best! The physical plant of the hotel itself is only average, and it is somewhat surprising that it bears the "Westin" name. We will stay there again, however, because of the staff and the location.

"Rythms of the Night" is a truly cannot miss experience, and greatly underpriced for the evening. Also check out deli across the street for coffee, breakfast and Victor's in the marina for lunch/dinner.

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 family hotel as well as couples!

Hotel great location near the marina with all the great restaurants! Initial room was on the 5th level which unfortunately sits underneath the lobby/bar roof area and is very noisey due to the echoing of people coming out of the bar at wee hours. We were promptly moved by the mgr. Martha to the 7th floor. Very quiet and just as nice, perfect. The hotel staff are great but would highly recommend not eating at the hotel as prices are ridiculous and the food is avg. A short stroll to the marina will find very nice restaurant's for any taste and pocket book. Some recommendations are: For breakfast the one and only "Mr. Creme" For Lunch/and a decent dinner "Victor's" For a very nice Italian dinner "Portebellos" For the most romatic dinner go to old town and get a resv for "La Casa de Angel". This is Richard and Elizabeth Burtons' old home re-done into a boutique hotel and very nice small restauraunt. Prices very reasonable for the quality and service $100 for 2. Other activities: swim with the dolphins. Book on line and you'll get a 10%-15% disc.

Westin PV

Had a great time in Puerto Vallarta. I had not been in 19 years and the Westin was wonderful. Only an 80 peso ride to town for shopping, night life and dining. walking distance to the Marina for dining too. I did whale watching and saw 4 hump backs then swam with the dolphins in Nuevo Vallarta the next day. Pool area is quite beautiful and the staff was very attentive. Would go back in a heartbeat.

If you want to do whale watching or swim with dolphins wait to purchase in town or on the beach. The salesmen are willing to bargin!
