The Westin Playa Bonita is a lovely property - comfortable beds and many pools. Very good workout facility, kids club (our kids loved to spend a couple of hours in there). We had an ocean view just gorgeous. Location is a 30min taxi ride away from the city, but not a problem to get there. The only negative I can...

We scheduled our first Partner Event here. It was fantastic! Great location, excellent service, nice meeting rooms and excellent location close to the city! Our guests were absolutely happy and during three days we had excellent meetings. Would absolutely recommend this place for business or vacations.

Beautiful views, great food, outstanding service. We had a large group and had a great time. We spent a ton of time at the pools and the service team there was outstanding. Richard was always there when we needed him with the drinks we ordered from the last round. He always had a smile and was willing to go above...

My family hosted our daughter's wedding at this beautiful hotel. We are so happy with the level of attention paid to every detail. We had 85 room nights and our guests who came from all over the world loved the views, pricing, pools and overall experience. In addition, we had many extra events .....private dinners, Bridal Shower, Rehearsal dinner as...

Wonderful location...on beach near the city of Panama. lots of swimming pools and great exercise facility. The beach was nice but rocky...they need to add more sand...so we basically used the pools. We will definitely return.

I stay at this hotel for a week every few months and find the hotel and property beautiful. I recently noticed they have an "all inclusive" option for food and drink which seems to be a popular option. There are multiple pool options, including adults only, everyone and kids. They often have water volleyball courts set up also. There are...

I usually wait to post my reviews until after my trip is done, but after 3 days here & having same experience didn't think much will change. Keep in mind, I think this is my 1st bad review on trip advisor so it must really be disappointing stay. I am also fluent in Spanish, so language was never a problem....

We stayed here for one week. The hotel is very nice and clean but the food is not the best. The swimming pool is very nice. During the morning there is low tides and the water is far far away. Around 3 pm the water comes up the beach seems nicer. The color of the water is not blue as...

This is a lovely resort located right on the Pacific Ocean, giving guests a great view of ships lined up to go through the Panama Canal. There are 6 restaurants to choose from and a great buffet breakfast. There are also several pools to choose from, at least one with a Jacuzzi. Only downside is that the ocean isn't like...
