This is a very pretty property in panama city. Clean, new & beautiful rooms with great views of passing ships, the ocean and rainforest. This is quite far from the city, 20-25 minute taxi ride ($40 each way). Even longer if you're getting to the canal. Pool is great. We loved walking the beach at low tide. Now on to... More

The hotel is beautiful and the facilities (rooms, pools, spa, etc.) are great. Great food in all of the restaurants. Service is very good, too. Staff is very friendly and flexible to accommodate your needs. The beach is Ok and good enough to have a great and relaxing time close to the city. Make sure to get an ocean view... More

The Westin Playa Bonita Panama is located approximately 30-35 mins from the airport and 15-20 minutes from downtown Panama. The Westin offers several restaurants with a variety of cuisines & price ranges. If you're looking for quick restaurant service...hold your breathe & practice patience. One of the cool things not to miss on the beach is watching the water recede... More

The hotel is definetly outside of Panama but we felt it was a relieve . I would for sure chose this hotel over a city hotel because you have a holiday feeling here. The rooms are big and the Pool area is great.

I went to the hotel with my girlfriend, to celebrate our 2nd Aniversary. It was AWESOME. Check in took about 5 minutes, the staff help us with our bags with a smile, gave us courtesy drinks and lead us to our room. We got a "nature view" room, it was not the great view, it was OK. Speaking about the... More

This huge hotel is just by the Panama Canal, you can see the boats waiting to use the Canal. 10 minutes from the City, Panama. Food is excellent, service is great, very clean, 5 swimming pools. The entire complex is very well maintained. Several restaurants to choose from.

Visited Panama for leisure last week of July2015. The hotel rooms were spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated with comfortable bedding. We did the all-inclusive package and felt we got our money's worth. There were a few opportunities, such as lack of dining choices being in the off season, but what was available was most excellent. The employees for the most... More
