Very nice hotel. The rooms are very spacious and modern looking. My room overlooked the beach and the pools. It was very nice to see the ships waiting to get in the canal from my terrasse. The food was good though not outstanding. The staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms could have been better cleaned. Nice place overall.

We stayed one night and had a great experience all the way around. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and well staffed (this is in a country that is hardly know for good customer service) I would go back in a heartbeat. To me, this is a 4 or 5 star resort-don't know why it isn't rated higher.

he whole of the hotel was airconditioned, the service, the food, the amenities in the room and hotel were beyond my expectations. The staff was friendly, the overall cleanliness of the hotel were on point; the food was satisfying and the buffet was one of the biggest selections I have ever seen. I used the gym and it was fully... More

This hotel has it all; great rooms, gorgeous views, and most importantly, terrific staff. My husband and I stayed a total of six days in this hotel-just returned two days ago. The rooms were spacious and the tub delicious! The balcony had a view of the ocean and the ships preparing to go into the Canal. A particular shout out... More

Admittedly it was rainy season which we knew going into this trip, but mother nature is not why I wouldn't return to Panama or to this resort, for so many reasons I'm going to have to number.... 1. In August, occupancy could not have been more than 20% so the resort was desolate with most things closed and us left... More

We spent the weekend here with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. It is large, relatively new, beautifully appointed and with the best of everything you would expect from a Westin. We had the good fortune of being upgraded to a Renewal Suite on the back of my SPG Platinum status and our suite was definitely among the best... More

This hotel is a typical beach resort hotel. It looks very nice, has the paradise view with the coconuts and the sea in the back. The pool is very appealing but ... beware the place is not as clean as it looks initially. I assumed that I was bitten by mosquitoes the first nigth, then after 3 nights, I have... More
