We are vegetarians and Jose quiros made sure to make us our own meals that were specifically catered to us. He was amazing and made our trip so much better! The service in general was great and we enjoyed the many facilities of the hotel. If u are looking for a nice get away from the city- it's perfect!

We stayed in a room with a beautiful view of the ocean and multiple swimming pools among well kept landscape. we were told that heads of states had stay here for their summits. Hotel offered free stretch/yoga session, aquaaerobics, zumba, salsa. Hurrah to the trainers, Itzel, Isabel, Alberto, Ginger who were formidable, young knowledgeable... More

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

We did an Apple Vacations all-inclusive: The way-to-go for your best stay. Kervin at poolside bar is great! Liz in Pacifico buffet room was super helpful! Courteous staff. As part of the fun of being there, we tried to add to/improve our Spanish and the staff was always supportive (we're sure our accents were atrocious :-) but could use English... More

Westin Playa Bonita was great! A large place, but never felt lost. The pools and opportunity for day drinking were great. The view was excellent, as well. It was a shame we didn't want to go into the ocean with it being so close the canal. Though, it was cool to walk on the sand when the tide was out.... More

Gregory was very nice. Food was excellent. A ton of choices. Resort is awesome! Pools and beach are great. Be sure to get a room with an ocean view. Most everyone speaks English and we purchased the all inclusive package. Well worth the money!

I had the fortune of staying at the Westin Playa Bonita in Panama this spring with my husband. The hotel is lovely and the pools are AMAZING, we particularly liked the pool bar. The spa was wonderful to experience but be careful the hot tubs are HOT. The food was great, especially breakfast. While the beach is not great for... More

CONS OK let's begin with the size of the hotel. It's big and we did go during Panama's winter or rainy season, but the hotel was deserted, and uncomfortably so! We ate dinner alone at Asiana - their "top" restaurant and the food wasn't terrible, but it wasn't brag worthy either. VERY awkward servers and they were out of all... More

Excellent hotel,located in the Panama Canal Area. Spacious rooms, good quality of linens. Pool and gym excellent. Beach is not the best in Panama since it faces the Pacific and it is close to the Canal. Excellent facilities for meetings and events.
