From Playa Conchal you can walk to Playa Brasilito, which is lined with small seafood restaurants and lively bars.

Feedback from Travelers
As I said earlier in the review, this is a typical all-inclusive that could really be anywhere in the world. It was relaxing and the people super friendly. The Royal Beach Club was well worth the upgrade. It sounds like there will be some updates done to the facilities in the coming months and they are needed. However, we found this to be a very relaxing spot and a great way to wrap up our trip.
The staff at the Westin were amazing from check in to check out. We tried every restaurant we could and everyone of them were fabulous. The food and service were amazing.
Really enjoyed this hotel for relaxing a few days. We all took a few of the exercise classes. We found booking restaurants a small problem, because different ones are closed each night and it was a bit difficult to find information on them.
