OMG, one can't say enough! I'll start by the way it ended: Lovely Katherine and friendly busboy, Miguel, met us at our room with a surprise fruit plate the morning of our departure, and a hand-written note, thanking us for staying with them. We loved them, and by gosh, they loved us back! The property itself was everything you'd expect... More

Overall, this trip was outstanding. It is fairly remote, and very quiet, but it achieved our objective for the trip. The hotel staff was great. Not a complaint to be found there at all, and our room attendant may have made our hall of fame! The only reason for the one star reduction was that one of the pools (with... More

When most people think of Panama, they think of the Canal and the city. But a couple of hours away on the Pacific Coast, you can find this beautiful paradise of a resort. All JW Marriott's I have been to are pretty gorgeous, but this resort pulls out all of the stops. The atmosphere was peaceful and quiet, the property... More

The JW Marriott Panama is a beautiful resort property about 2 hours from Panama City. We found the property to be well maintained, service good, food tasty and the overall atmosphere to be serene and relaxing. The Marriott is not a giant resort with 24 hour activity options and disco music blasting at night. Rather, the property is located within... More

Very nice hotel with large well appointed rooms with hardwood floors. High floor gives you an excellent view out to the ocean. The grounds are well kept with several pools going out to the beach. Restaurant service at the pool and Tamarindo was great. Food was a bit on the high side. But that was to be expected at a... More

Excellent place in the pacific with an amazing golf course. 100% recommended! Its about two hours away from the city if you travel by car. They have several restaurants that are not the impressive but overall is the best hotel in the pacific in Panama!
