Admittedly it was rainy season which we knew going into this trip, but mother nature is not why I wouldn't return to Panama or to this resort, for so many reasons I'm going to have to number.... 1. In August, occupancy could not have been more than 20% so the resort was desolate with most things closed and us left... More

We spent the weekend here with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. It is large, relatively new, beautifully appointed and with the best of everything you would expect from a Westin. We had the good fortune of being upgraded to a Renewal Suite on the back of my SPG Platinum status and our suite was definitely among the best... More

This hotel is a typical beach resort hotel. It looks very nice, has the paradise view with the coconuts and the sea in the back. The pool is very appealing but ... beware the place is not as clean as it looks initially. I assumed that I was bitten by mosquitoes the first nigth, then after 3 nights, I have... More

We´ve stayed a few times there for the weekend, we live in Panama City and visiting a beach resort can be complex since a great swimmable beach is a few hours far from the city. Food is good, ice-cream and desserts store included in the rate is amazing, having a snack bar open during the day is a great option... More

The Playa Bonita is a beautiful resort with comfortable clean rooms. The staff are friendly and generally very helpful. A wonderful place to stay if you just want to rest and relax, not so great if you want to experience Panama. It is located in the middle of nowhere and takes about an hour to get to anywhere. Except for... More

The hotel is very clean and the ocean view from our room was amazing! We were on the 17th floor. Unfortunately we went in June which was nothing but cloudy skies and rain. Loud thunderstorms and night and the tide was so low we never even went in the ocean, plus way too many rocks. There were some amazing sites... More
