Set on one of the prettiest beaches on the Pacific Coast, surrounded by the jungle, and being just one of a few hotels in the area, Hotel Westin Playa Conchal is perfectly geared up to welcome families with the stunning natural surroundings, animals freely roaming the resort and luxury accommodation, as well as a whole host of facilities and services to cater for luxury family holidays in Costa Rica. And all just an hour's drive from the airport, so no hefty travel times with the kids in tow.
Accommodation is spread around a selection of ponds and enormous trees leading towards the sandy beach, home to iguanas and monkeys who hang around for the perfect photo opportunity. Each room or suite is spacious and can sleep up to 4 people, with a good outdoor space where you can admire the jungle surroundings. This place is quite contained but there are also plenty of opportunities to stretch the legs and explore the larger grounds with its' golf course and beach on the doorstep. If you are feeling energetic there are tennis courts, a top-of-the-range gym, group exercise sessions (morning beach yoga is a must!) as are the organised pool activities where all the family can join in a volleyball game or aqua-aerobics. Kids have a dedicated club where arts, crafts and full-on play time are mixed with an appreciation of the environment and nature of this fabulous country.
When it comes to dining you are spoilt for choice throughout the day as part of the all-inclusive package. From the grand buffet area (with theme nights) where the kids will have a massive choice of food and dessert options, to specialised restaurants offering everything from pizza, sushi and traditional Costa Rican cuisine. Then following your evening meal, check out the themed shows which provide fun for all the family before bedtime beckons.
