Our family of four had a spectacular time on our week-long stay at the Westin Playa Bonita. A few little disappointments, but overall amazing and highly recommended. Starting with the hotel itself- beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean from the ocean-view room we had on the 10th floor. Four amazing swimming pools set alongside the ocean background. Lifeguards on-duty all... More

The hotel is clean, the staff is very kind. In the restaurant Pacifica, where I took my breakfast, the service was excellent. Mr. Ismael de Sedas has always the smile on his face, and he is very helpful. Thanks !

During my visit to Panama, I also spent 3 nights at the Westin Playa Bonita. Beautiful hotel affording large outdoor pools and right on the beach. Make sue you book a room with seaview on a high floor so you can enjoy the views and without humidity. I had booked a garden view room but paid supplement for the sea... More

This is a true luxury property, and as stated in the headline, right on the beach. The only things between you and the beach are about 4 or 5 swimming pools, stretching at least over 100 yards or more parallel to the beach in front of the Westin. The hotel is about 18 or 19 floors of hotel rooms, and... More

The rooms, the food, the service and its employees were wonderful. Also their lifeguard crew made a great job taking care of everyone there. Their employees always ready to help and guide make an incredible experience for our family.

I wasn't there long enough to try all six restaurants but those I did try were excellent. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The lobby bar was lively into the evening. I hope I get the...

Long ride from the airport with scary driver, felt like I was in a Nascar race. Hotel was very high end and classy. Our room was nice #509 with hidden bed from doorway and toilet in washroom. Nice balcony to dry your wet clothes. Nice beds, pillows and linens, which is always my fear. No mini fridge and no room... More

We very much enjoyed the hotel ameneties. The pool was excellent and huge. Service was good. There was a red flag up at all times. Would be helpful to know why as scared of stingrays and don't know if that was the reason. Also beach not good for lounging especially at low tide. Ice cream was a pleasant surprise.
