I attended a company event there and the property is gorgeous. Beautiful views, great pools. I had a king suite that was huge and of course, the Westin beds were awesome. With that said, the service was just OK and the communication barrier was pretty bad (I speak English). Also, the food at the number of restaurants was average at... More

Our family had a nice time. The pools were huge and awesome. Our room was high up and had a spectacular view. Very cool to see all the ships line up to get into the canal. We were really comfortable and happy. Food was mediocre at best. A lot of the same bland stuff at all the restaurants but whatever..... More

Service, Food, and Hospitality in the Restaurant was excellent. In particular, Irma Oporta not only was very attentive to my table, but went above and beyond in her effort to communicate both in English, and Spanish, due to my lack of spanish launguage skills. We exchanged "words", Spanish to English, and visa versa............It was fun. Thanks Irma for helping make... More

The hotel is very nice and the views are beautiful. The service is OK...but, that being said, we want to give KUDOS to Alejandra O. for ALWAYS keeping an eye out for us. She truly went above and beyond, even with only speaking minimal English. If we asked for something that she could not understand, she went out of her... More

This hotel is beautiful and has luxurious rooms and pools on a beautiful beach. However the service is so-so. I sat at the pool bar and had to walk up to a server to ask for a soda after waiting for 10 minutes and nobody coming to me. Reception was less than helpful when I needed a power adapter and... More

We stayed at this resort for a corporate event. Some aspects were amazing such as the pool, rooms and view. The beds were so comfortable and the bathroom was modern. It was easy to pick different adventures to see in the city! Food at the restaurants was amazing. The Buffet was, well, a buffet but did have a lot of... More

We also attended with a large corporate group. Our room was always cleaned and had a great view of the pools. The best part was the service we received from Alejandra O.and Elliott.

We just spent a week at the Westin Playa Bonita on a corporate event. The hotel was modern, clean, and inviting. The food at all of the restaurants was delicious. But the most memorable was the beautiful pool area! The staff provided excellent service at all times. Alejandra O. was so attentive; she took care of everything from getting us... More
