4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The best layout of chairs, shady spots, bars, and pools. Personnel is extremely pleasant and courteous. Rooms are very nice, but with a silly window with shutters between the bedroom and bathroom. How many persons really want to show themselves in the toilet? Beach sand is oil contaminated; water is warm and too calm (no waves). Many places to eat,... More

This place was lovely. My wife and I (we are not passers, we are an obviously lesbian family with a child) were treated like queens. I read some reviews about the service and wonder what planet these people were on. Yes, there is a language barrier, and when you fall into the perfect relaxation of this place, it's kind of...

Beautifully maintained resort. The staff at the hotel and golf course were very friendly and well trained. The golf course is incredible, the rough is tough. We ate in every restaurant, food was delicious.

Golf is sensational. The best in Panama. The course is great, challenging and incredible maintenance. Tees seem greens, fairways seem a carpet!! Service is perfect. Panamanian people makes you feeling like home. Do not forget to have an omelette for breakfast. Marcos W. makes one of the best in the world...

We had an excellent stay at the JW Marriott this June. The Hotel grounds were immaculate, our room was clean and very comfortable, and the staff were extremely friendly. We visited during the week, and it seemed like we were the only guests there. Make sure you go for the breakfast included, the buffet is one of the best I... More

I want to share my experience with Denisse at the front desk. I had multiple questions which normally would have been managed by the concierge. But I didn't get there in time. I want you and JW Marriott to know Denisse was equally talented, professional and personable. We are going back!!

The hotel and staff are great. The staff wached all the details, they knew all our names. The only suggestion would be that the hotel had a hobby room for adults, maybe with pool tables, large screen for movies and other games for those rainy days that are very often.

We escaped to this hotel after a horrendous experience (one night!) at the Hotel Riu Playa Blanca - we had already stayed at this resort before so knew it was a sure thing.
