Rated 4 out of 5 by MerH Lovely place, food over-priced
The Westin La Paloma is beautifully located with views of surrounding mountains. There is native-appearing landscaping that is quite beautiful and the pool looks amazing (I was there for a conference and didn't end up using it). Our room was clean and nice with a really comfortable bed. The staff were uniformly helpful and very polite. When I booked my room the rep went above and beyond to find me a deal and was super nice. Great to have the free shuttle to a very nice local shopping center. I am not a golfer so can't comment on that part.
My only issue was the food--it is very expensive, even for a resort, especially room service (about $80 for a pasta dish, a chicken dish, and 2 salads). This would have been ok if the quality was excellent but unfortunately was not--chicken over-cooked, salad dressing in a packet, pasta tasty but very simple, probably cost about $3 to make. Brunch tasty but also very expensive and generous gratuity included for a group of 3--frustrating when (1) we did the buffet and (2) our server disappeared and we had to go in search of someone to pay as we needed to leave for the airport.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ssut Room for improvment
Beautiful facility! Unfortunately we had some issues that put a bit of a damper on our stay. First, we were not able to get into our room until 5:15. We arrived a bit early and enjoyed the pool prior to check in time. With our room not being available we had to cancel our 600 dinner reservation. I checked several times on the status and one of the check in ladies was nasty. Wish I got her name. Her statement was "400 check in states you have a room reserved not necessarily that it is available by 400." WHAT??!! Second, when they finally did call us to tell us our room was ready there was no mention of bringing your ID. Being at the pool and already showing our ID when we checked in this was a very frustrating inconvience. Why couldn't they mention that on the phone with they know you are at the pool? Third, I was there two days and the entire time was spent at the pool. Not once was I asked if I needed anything to drink or eat. Not really the resort feel. Lastly, the pool area is beautiful but the stone tile is a HUGE hazard. It is VERY slippery. My son slipped and fell down 3 stairs backwards. I slipped and thankfully did not fall 5 times. I had two different types and flip flops and tried both hoping one was less slippery. Law suit waiting to happen. Our friends staying here previously warned us about the slippery deck. They mentioned the mom actually cracked her head open.

Slumber Party is not an event I would have at a Westin - makes place seem extremely trashy. Felt bad for any families with children staying there this weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrLisa Frustration
I just stayed at this resort for 3 nights. I loved this place, but I was very frustrated by Kailee at the front desk. I was at the pool, came to my room, tried to get my key to work, and it didn't. So, walking with no shoes on the hot gravel, I went to the front desk. She reactivated my key, I walked all the way back to my room, and it didn't work again. I returned to front desk, got a piece of glass in my foot along the way, to get a new key. She gave me 2 new keys. When I left the front desk, I was in tears because I had glass in my foot and my feet hurt from the gravel. Derek was outside and came to my rescue. He noticed I was very frustrated and in pain. He not only gave me a ride to my room, but he waited to make sure I was safe in my room and went above and beyond. I was going to pay and stay 2 more nights because I loved this place so much. However, after that experience, I was frustrated. I would recommend that the front staff (particularly her) be a bit more aware of the clients' needs and a bit more sensitive. Mimi, at the front desk, was EXCELLENT and I think if she had been waiting on me, none of this would have happened.
