We spent the last 6 days at this resort and loved it! Panama is a beautiful country and this hotel is laid out beautifully. The restaurants were delicious and offered great variety. Thank you to Irma Oporta at the pool, she offered great service and made out pool days perfect! We had very few bug problems...wouldnt worry about it!

We stayed here for a week on and insurance convention. The place is nice but the pools are not maintained. A lot of leaves around the edges of the water and a couple pools seemed mirky in the afternoon. The room service is NOT included in the all inclusive so beware they don't tell you that. The room maids either... More

We loved this hotel. The beach was not much, but the 5 pools were great. The Heavenly beds were some of the best we have slept in. I don't know what all the fuss is about the bugs, but we had a party of 4 and none of us had a problem with bugs or mosquitoes. We did not need... More

The Westin is a beautiful hotel. The staff is helpful and they all speak English. It is only 20 minutes from Panama City if you want to go in to town to eat. Make sure to bring bug spray, I got bitten up at about 5-7pm.

This was a lovely hotel with very gracious staff and amenities. The rooms were large and well kept. Most everyone understood English but some better than others. The food was good in most places ,but better in the fine dining restaurants. It is very hot and humid and you need to have insect repellent on at all times. The hotel's... More

Beautiful, well kept hotel. Bring insect repellent. Beautiful pool area. Beach area not so much. Nice, friendly staff. Executive Club is the crown jewel of this resort. Eduardo at the Executive Club is the best and is the consummate professional - friendly and very helpful. Yadira is great as well.

I went with my fiancé to the Westin Playa Bonita in late February 2014 as part of a company retreat. The resort is overall very beautiful and well laid out, but it is certainly more of a hotel environment than a resort. There were tons of business events going on when we stayed, which makes it interesting for people watching,... More

Beautiful hotel with a big problem. Woke up after my first night with a line of non-itchy bug bites down my back. Half the hotel agreed it was bed bugs ("chinches") while the management only called it night bugs ("chitras"). My family and I were moved to a higher floor, I was lathered in medicinal cream and nothing else. The... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Westin. It was nice and relaxing. While we enjoyed our stay, there are a few things that vacationers should be aware of. The upsides: 1) The SPG lounge on the 19th floor. The employees and managers there are the very best! Eduardo made each and every day for us brighter... More
