Although i asked for facilities for someone with a walking cane the person at the counter gave me a room far away from the elevator, when a room close to the elevator would have been ideal for us. In the ice cream parlor possibly more than one ice cream or cake would have been nice.

We came for my wife's birthday, and it was spectacular. Thanks in particular to Génesis amd Cornelio in the reception. This hotel is really leagues ahead of the competition. Having been to the Riu, Sheraton, and Playa Blanca resorts in Panama, this is the best of them all in terms of food, service, and overal quality of the hotel. I...

I was in the hotel to attend a corporate meeting. The facilities are fantastic but I felt the lack of a concern for the well being of the customers. Some staff are very helpful but need stronger training. The hotel also needs attention to the infra. One example was the restaurant's air conditioning which was not working properly.

Fantastic facility for a resort getaway and close enough to visit all the Panama Canal tourist attractions. We had a rental car, but most tours picked up from the hotel. (Driving in Panama is really not that bad! I actually miss it now)

Love the Westin chain, and this hotel is no different. Beautiful facility, Oceanside with the pools, restaurants , convention space, free wifi...all the goodies for a great experience. I had a slight problem at check in ( not Westin's fault), but they handled it quickly and completely...with more than total satisfaction. Thanks to Armando, Jose and a very special thanks...

Great experience, amazing customer service. Before I start my review I have to mention Mariam's name. I had a small issuer while I was checking in. I booked the hotel weeks ago online. But somehow apparently it didn't go through. When I try to check in, there wasn't anything set. Mariam the manager promise me to take care of it...

It's a beautiful hotel set in a tropical jungle atmosphere. Service and facilities were top notch. The pools and poolside service were great. The room was immaculate and equipped with all amenities. All in all, a very relaxing atmosphere. Try it, you'll be glad you did!

I visited Panama for my honeymoon and we chose to stay at the Playa Bonita due to its’ proximity to the beach. Though you won't use the beach due to the canal the property is beautiful. Rooms have great views, Food was amazing, but more importantly the service was phenomenal. I'll start with before I arrived. Concierge: Edgar: I got...

The hotel is superb, nicely designed and groomed. You are minutes from Panama City and the canal. To make things even better the people are friendly and service is impeccable. A special thanks to Marilyn G from the lobby bar. You elevated the mood and atmosphere at your station with your energy and charm.
