I came to the W hotel for my first time this past weekend for a one day trip and I was absolutely blown away by the service I was provided from the pool team. From the serves constantly checking up on my needs to the pool attendants fulfilling every need I had without asking. I would like to recognize two individuals who stood out the most and that'll be Alfredo and Malik from the pool team. Those two was nothing but on point with any request I had for them so for that I’m thankful for them !!! Read less

The W is definetly winning and is my fave spot now! Me and my significant other spent the day at the beach at the W for our 5 year anniversary!!! Service was great (except for small delay with food). The beach was exceptionally clean and the people working at the beach were very attentive. I want to give a special mention to Aaron at the beach for his attention to details and his ability to make you feel special. When he saw us the second day of our trip he seemed like he saw an old friend. He also remembered our names and our prefences. All in all the service was fantastic in the hotel! Very personal service. Will definetly return. Read less

My husband and I very recently spent four nights here. Our room was spacious and clean. The balcony was huge and included and outdoor shower which confused us since we were on the third floor. The hotel housekeeping staff was second to none. They were friendly and did such a great job servicing the room. Most of the staff members we interacted with were also friendly. I just had difficulty with the prices in terms of the amenities that were offered. They charge $250 on your card per day for incidentals on top of the $40/day resort fee. The incidentals fee is refunded at the end of your stay if unused but it’s impossible not to spend at least that much per day. One morning we spent $90 on breakfast for two people with no alcohol. That was eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee. The food was good- but $90? Speaking of coffee- the free coffee included in the resort fee is from the coffee bar downstairs. We didn’t realize this until our last day. Order a regular coffee and it’s free! I would have opted for that instead of my $7 almond milk latte. Also, the Bliss spa was closed for renovations which was a total bummer since it rained a lot. A spa day would have been awesome when we were confined to inside. The lobby ran out of umbrellas every day. They gave you chairs at the beach but charged you if you needed an umbrella to block the sun. We enjoyed our stay there- it just felt like Ritz prices without the Ritz experience. If money is no object then this place is awesome! Well, it’s already awesome just hurts your travel budget a bit.
