There’s plenty of room to spread out with three outdoor pools and decks. If you reserve in the Royal Beach Club Tower, you get exclusive access to a private pool. The resort also features a Heavenly Spa by Westin™, a Westin® Kids Club, creative restaurants with oceanfront dining and bars with refreshing cocktails.

Situated next to the large main pool under a giant palapa at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort, this dining spot offers Mexican classics.
