The Westin Golf Resort and Spa in Playa Conchal, province of Guanacaste, has earned the coveted World Travel Awards in two important categories. This grand hotel and upscale golf resort in Costa Rica has been recognized as Mexico & Central America’s Leading All Inclusive Resort 2014 as well as Leading Family Resort.
As described by parent company Starwood,
At 2,400 acres, Starwood’s first all-inclusive resort offers all you need to thrive: a lagoon-style pool, a WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, tennis courts, and championship golf. Relax fully with the Westin® Kids Club, complimentary fine dining, and The Spa.
According to journalist Fabiola Vargas of business daily La Republica, the Westin Playa Conchal earned the 21st World Travel Awards thanks to the personalized service given to each guest and the quality of its overall services and amenities. The World Travel Awards ceremony was held in early December at the Caribbean British Overseas Territory of Anguilla.
Award recipients in the all-inclusive and family resort categories are judged based on their commitment to make guest experiences unique. In the case of the upscale Westin, its Family Club Suites, private check-in and check-out procedures, family concierge service, videogame selection, and special amenities for the entire family were carefully considered.
The General Manager of the Westin Playa Conchal told La Republica:
“This recognition represents for us a great honor since we are the only Westin property that operates under the umbrella of all-inclusive resort, and we have earned this thanks to our variety of exclusive services.”
As previously reported by The Costa Rica Star, all-inclusive resorts and family vacations are two leading segments in the domestic tourism industry of Costa Rica. This fact is underscored by the projected occupancy rate at the Westin for 2015: greater than 90 percent.
