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.

Mexican Wedding Vacation

Great Hotel and great service. Very clean and just what we hoped for. My only objection was the internet service was a little slow and I think it should be FOC, but its not that big of a deal.

Excellent value for a Westin property

Hotel was a great value for what you get. Restaurant/bar food was great, drinks were strong, and all staff members were incredibly nice and helpful. The pool was beautiful but expect random fine particles in the water due to no skimmers like a traditional pool. Laying out at the pool was great as it got a lot of sun and also had a nice supply of umbrellas. At the beach, don't expect white sandy beaches - they are brown, courser sand and cleaned by hand every morning. Also, expect a long taxi ride depending on traffic to the main downtown area, though the fare was relatively cheap (100 pesos or around $10 one-way).

Take the "Outdoor Adventure" tour offered by Vallarta Adventures. Speed boating, off-roading, mule riding, and zip lining was a blast!

Dining in PV

It was our 55th Anniversary. Costs were of little concern. But we expected to be delightfully surprised by the cuisine and the "top" restaurant's ambiance. $50.00 pp not including wine or tipping provided mediocre to barely edible entres. On two separate nights my sea food was unacceptably over-cooked and I left it uneaten. Wine selections were lousey - bring your own and pay corkage! #I have provided a few recommendations but don't expect Boston fish houses, SF, LA, NY, Chicago or New Orleans haute cuisine. You just can't find it!#

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Hotel restaurant food was expensive and unappetitizing. The best downtown or marina restaurants were also over priced with at best had only average food. Go to the Outback, Daqiuri Dicks, the Blue Shrimp, Dantes. Porto Bello or Victors for reasonably good dining experiences at an acceptable price. Victor's at the Marina is good for brkfst, lunch or dinner in a simple but very pleasant ambiance. The Argentine Steak House is expensive but excellent. ( Do lunch at Karen,s and dinner at Mark's in Buceria.)

Westin Resort & Spa PVR 10/3 to 10/8

The resort is wonderful, clean, and has an extremely friendly staff. The resort was under repairs as the rainy season has just finished and it is time to get ready for the High season. This was understandable for the great price we paid. The staff went out of their way on every request or question we had. The resort is centered in town close to the airport and marina. For my daughter and I it was great. Cab rides were less than 10$ to just about anywhere. The rooms were very clean, most rooms have a great ocean view. Would definitely go back and recommend.

Honeymoon

This was a fantastic hotel to spend our honeymoon at. It was beautiful and very clean. The staff was very friendly and willing to help with anything. Antonio from the beach bar was absolutely the best. The downsides to this hotel was that there was only one restaruant to eat at (excluding the swim up bar). The second restarant and bar were closed. Also the workout room was too hot in to get a really good workout. I work out every day for a minimum of 1.5 hrs and it was too hot to go more than 30 minutes of cardio.

Great Stay at the Westin....

We had a great stay at this hotel. The resort is beautiful and in a great location in Marina Vallarta. The hotel is about a 30-45 minute bus trip to downtown but there is a lot to do in the Marina. Will not book through this site again as it was not clear that I wouldn't receive the points for my stay.

Great one night stay

The Westin in Puerto Vallarta was just as we expected, beautiful and comfortable. The children loved the 4 pools. The beds were very comfortable and the views incredible. My only suggestion would be that after spending so much, the pool toys ought to be included. It is very close to the airport and a short drive/bus ride into town.

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.

Shopping tip: In Hotel

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.
