I have stayed at the Westin PB multiple times (for business) and this hotel is my favourite near Panama City. There's no way to get it wrong with an hotel that has an ice-cream parlour, mimosas for breakfast, and a well motivated staff. Ms Anna-Karina (guest relations), Mr Arlee (Pacifica restaurant) and Ms Melissa (Pacifica restaurant) as well as other... More

We were a bit leary about staying at the beach near Panama City after reading reviews mentioning pollution and rocks, etc. Not true it was very nice. We stayed at the Westin during the month of June/July. It was very sparsely occupied which was to our advantage. Beautiful pools and beach views and beautiful weather The hotel was very new... More

The server Gregory was great! He helped us out in many areas during our stay at the hotel and was very polite and helpful. For example, While looking for a room for a TV to watch a game he went out of his way to help us find a nice room with a great TV thanks to him!

The hotel is beautiful. The restaurants are fantastic & realistically priced! Something you rarely encounter in a hotel. The best feature of all were the people who worked there, especially the club floor lounge. All first class!! We will and are already talking with friends to go back for another visit.

The Westin does not look to impressive from the front entrance; but this begins to change upon entering the hotel. Front desk staff does speak English and was helpful and friendly too!. Totally enjoyed the quality of the foods served and wide selection at buffet. In the evenings, there is live entertainment at a piano type bar. Too bad the... More

My mom took me to Panama as my graduation present so I could meet my family. Little did I know i would meet family at the hotel. Amilcar is someone I recommend getting in touch with while you are there. He is an activities person. Also I want to point out that the Head Chefs wife is amazing! She honestly... More

We got in on a Wednesday and it was hardly anyone there, it was like we had the whole resort to ourselves with the staff's attention to detail, it was a awesome stay. The spa is great, the views...

This hotel was amazing! Although it is a large hotel, no details were missed. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and kind the entire trip.....and everyone always had a smile and greeted you when they saw you. They really made you feel like they were happy to have you there. The hotel is VERY clean, updated and modern. The rooms... More
