        Hi Jaime, Great review!

        I'm glad you got everything with the hotel sorted out, but it's just annoying to have to go through it.

          We did. It is pretty far from downtown but it worked out for most of my guests. They weren't too active- they just wanted to lay by the pool and relax most days. Steve, I and a few other "active" ones went to PV 4 days out of the 7. It was nice because we were so far so we kinda all stuck together. Not many were the adventurous independent types.

          However, the rooms are GORGEOUS and freshly remodeled.

          One of the two plasma screen TVs. This one is the one you can view while laying in bed. The other is in the sitting room/sleeping area with the trundle bed.

          This is an sitting/sleeping area right when you walk into the room. It has doors that close it off from the main room. I believe in the 2 bedroom rooms this is the 2nd bed. Here it's a trundle bed.

          Each room has a balcony with either an ocean front or poolview. Most times both.

          As seen here. This room was on the 2nd floor I believe. They had a full view of the pool and this is what they had of the ocean.

          The higher rooms had amazing views. So so pretty.

          No pics of the bathrooms but they are HUGE and beautiful.

          I need to do a review instead of hijacking your thread. haha Just in case you were curious about the Barcelo.

          The honeymoon suite pretty much sucked compared to these rooms. It's not remodeled so I would not stay there. However, they hosted my WD in one of their suites. Holy crap- it is SOOOOO nice and bigger than some condos!

              Wow Rachel! The rooms are beautiful! I went years ago and loved the pool area, now I'm sort of kicking my self for not selecting this hotel. Oh well, what's done is done!

                Well boo for the Westin but yay for some of my other favorite spots you visited! I hope you go with LC and I'm glad you found the bed...yipee!

                The Barcelo is nice...I have more pics if you need them :) There are lots of hotels in PV that would work well for a group so don't let the Westin discourage you...but I would be annoyed too!

                  Hey Jamie, glad you made it back in one piece and those wacky CO tornadoes didn't take your plane!

                  Alright so since I have never been to LC or PV or that matter....for possibly sea sick guests would you (or anyone here!) recommend dramamine before hand?

                  and then the stairs...I am assuming that because the lead right into the sand there is a bit of of a slippery-ness to them? I am just envisioning myself walking down the stairs in the dress and SLIP there I go!

                    The stairs aren't slippery. They are rock and a lot wider steps than I had first imagined. Stairs are just my nemesis in general so I'm sure normal people don't even think twice about them.

                      good to know the steps are wider than you imagined! I too am imagining them as tiny skinny little things!
