The Westin Golf Resort & Spa is a nice "all-inclusive" hotel located at the large expanse of beach known as Playa Conchal and is a good choice for couples, singles, or families looking for a Costa Rica vacation.

This is a pretty standard Westin/resort. It has all that you would expect including; the heavenly bed (fantastic), lovely rooms, proximity to beach etc - but the thing that made it so good, I think, was the staff.
