The Westin Playa Bonita lived up to its name and then sum. Great staff, food is superb. view is stupendous. Service beyond reproach. Both my wife and I were summarily pleased with our staff and wished we could have stayed longer. We were on a Panama tour with Caravan Tours and we were very pleased with all of the hotels... More

Our time in Panama City was short but sweet! After our arrival we had the pleasure of having a world class tour of all that Panama has to offer thanks to Alexander! He was very knowledgeable, charismatic, and knew exactly what my wife and I were looking to do once we got on ground. After one day of touring Panama... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the Westin for a quick trip to Panama. The hotel was clean and well-maintained. We recommend an ocean view if possible as you could see the ships lined up at the canal and see the beautiful view. We took advantage of the executive floor as Hilton honors members and it was well worth the... More

Wonderful service w/ English speaking staff. Rooms were large & clean. Very nice place to start your Panama City trip. I recommend walking down the beach to the intercontinental hotel lighthouse for dinner too.

The hotel is great - the location is outstanding and the facilities and amenities are well maintained, pampering and plentiful. There is great restaurants selection and there's abundant seating available poolside (finding shade may prove to be troublesome when the hotel is at capacity ... but we were able to use the SPG reserved seating by the large pool, which...

We were there in January and had a great time. It was hot but not unbearable and the humidity wasn't bad. The property for the most part is very well maintained.

I visited the Westin in February, 2015. It's an impressively beautiful place: immaculate beaches that stretch in to the pacific, palm trees filled with chirping birds, and babes in bikinis strolling around. After being in Panama City for a few days, the resort felt (not surprisingly) very touristy and seemed to cater to American tourists, who are/were slightly obnoxious. With... More

I live near the Atlantic and I'm used to the tide going in and out. I arrived at about 4pm and got in a late swim in maybe 5 feet of water about 30 yards from the main pool. The next day I went out for an AM swim only to find about 50 yards of rocks. I've never seen... More
