However.......as I've seen at many hotels lately, they are understaffed (to make owners wealthier) and the customer pays the price. I arrived for a global travel and tourism conference after 3 pm and was told there were no rooms available. (No... More

I have been to many places but none have given me the attention that the group at the Lobby Bar have. From sharing stories recommending drinks and making me feel at home. Thank you Kervin, Estefani, and Masiel for the attention. I will see you all in two months. :). Gracias por la piña deliciosa.

This resort is for those who want to be away from the city. The pools and beachfront location is beautiful. It was so nice to have a soaking tub and a huge walk in shower. The room also had a balcony with beautiful views! I am already planning another trip to Panama and plan to stay at the Westin Playa... More

Check in was mass confusion once you were recognized. People were butting in line and going straight to the counter, typical in Latino cultures; however, the... More

A bit far from the city however located in a very nice place between the beach and the forest bordering the Panama canal. For who lives in Sao Paulo, Brazil, breathe the fresh and clean air is the best ! Just the name Playa Bonita is not suitable Hotel is splendid, spacious and clean. Room was huge and very nice...

So, we recently stayed at the Westin Playa Bonita for 9 days, & loved it! Hated to leave. The rooms are spacious, clean, with very comfortable bedding. Get an ocean view, you can see the ships waiting to go through the canal. Food: Can't complain. It was all pretty good. Liked the Asian the best. Good variety at the buffets.... More
