Quick trip! Questions

Postby CreativeName » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:50 pm

After several years away my wife and I will be back for a quick 3 night stay in May. We used points to stay at the Westin. I’ve never stayed at this property as we are typically “villa people.” From what I’ve read it seems fine and they have done some remodeling.

I guess I’m mostly wondering about trips to town and renting a Jeep from the Westin. Anyone have any experience? I’ll want to rent a Jeep for at least one full day. As it’s such a quick trip we can take taxis for other in town needs.

I read that the ferry directly to the Westin is $120 per person, one way. Can someone confirm this? That seems pretty high.

Thank you,

$120 sounds like a roundtrip price, but that is a good reason to call the Westin.

I would rent a jeep. The beach at the Westin is man made and the water clarity is not good. The runoff from the ghut has a lot of bacteria and the water in the bay is frequently flagged for E Coli.
