W Costa Rica – Reserva Conchal [Master Thread]

This one seems to have flown under the radar. Currently opening 11/1/18. It looks to be a new property adjacent to The Westin Golf Resort & Spa, Playa Conchal.

SPG Category 6. No category assigned in combined MR/SPG program as yet.

I think it is going to be hard to beat the Westin's Royal Beach Club suites and the all-inclusive nature of the Westin next door.

Depending on pricing and how nice W is. The Westin Conchal is pretty run down.

The W looks to be $70-$100/night less, which would be eaten up (and then some) by the Westin being all-inclusive. The W renderings make it look much nicer, for what that's worth (not much).

We were there in January and the restaurants were in excellent condition (and with excellent food except for one) and the all-adult Royal Beach Club suite we were in was anything but run down. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

UPDATE: In discussing this with Mrs. controller1, she said she saw the main pool and felt it was a little run down and she wondered about the rooms. As far as the all-adult Royal Beach Club which includes an all-adult pool with swim-up bar and an all-adult exclusive lunch buffet restaurant, it was great. So perhaps my views were jaded since I stayed around the RBC and thoroughly enjoyed the exclusivity of it.

This clearly will be a new hotspot area. Not only is the new W opening here, but the new Aman Costa Rica property is slated to open in late 2020 nearby at Punta Sabana, a mere 10-15 min drive.

We stayed in a non-RBC room back in December 2016. Looking at my original reservation confirmation it was a Deluxe Jr suite with a golf course view. Agree that the pool felt a little run down, but nothing that was really a bother. The room we had was in excellent condition and seemed well maintained. It's close to to years since we visited, but based on the week we spent, would not hesitate tor return.

This is one I’m considering. Especially with an Aman resort scheduled to open in a few years not 20 min away on the nearby peninsula.

The hotel website has pictures now.

I've got 5 nights here in January. Very happy it opened up on schedule, and looking forward to early reports.
