Excellent staff, good view, incredible ocean views, beautiful rooms, great spa, room service very efficient…all good with the exception of how noisy this place is! I could hear my son cough in the room next to us and every time somebody opened or closed a door in the hallway, it was LOUD! I tried to close our door quietly, but... More

I stayed at this resort in February with my husband as part of a large corporate group. We were one of two very large groups at the hotel at the same time. Check in was easy and we were given a room on the third floor. The room was modern and clean and had a great view of the ocean... More

Walls paper thin!! Food over priced!! Beach is far from beautiful! Green option?? :/ We will sum it up to lack of supervision when building this resort, to account for the walls. lack of good management when it comes to little details that are expected when staying at a westin. The meals and all but one restaurant did not reflect... More

We just came back from our vacation in Panama and our stay at the Westin in Playa bonita exceeded all our expectations. We stayed from July 7th thru July 12th and since the first day the hotel personnel made us feel like if we were at home. We'd like to mention and recognize three of them who gave us outstanding...

We loved this resort. Just came back from a week relaxing in July 2014. The pool area is the crown jewel of Panama. I was surprised how empty the hotel was. The staff is WONDERFUL and several members went above and beyond to meet our needs. Roger was working the night shift when we arrived at 1am after awful plane... More

The whole concept of the resort is wonderful. From the moment you drive in to the grounds it is beautifully presented and maintained. The Hotel has grandeur, it has polish it has great staff. Our check in was a late one due to flights, after 11pm, but no problems, easy and fast. Our room was spacious with a King size... More

One of the biggest problems at resorts can be outdoor seats around the pool, but not an issue here! The pools are huge, and there are tons of chairs and chaise lounges around the pools, with even plenty in the shade. The pools were kept clean and were a wonderful place to cool off from the Panamanian heat. The property... More

We just enjoyed a week stay at the end of June. The rooms were awesome and we had an ocean view. We loved the enormous beds and the great accommodations. We thought the communication would be difficult, but all the staff were very helpful. We ate breakfast at the Pacifica almost everyday and Irma Oporta would wait on us. We... More

By that time we went, we didn´t stay at the hotel, only went to have Father´s Day Celebration Lunch was excellent and couldn´t asked for a better service, specially by Supervisor José Quiroz. The food was delicious and he treated us very nicely and in a very professional way. We couldn´t asked for more.

Having had a previous good experience at the Westin Playa Bonita, did not hesitate to take guests visiting from Virginia there. I'm pleased to say that they absolutely loved it. Their 7 and 9 year-old children had a lot of fun at the pools and collecting pretty shells at the beach--even though not the best beach in Panama, it has... More
