I visited the Westin Playa Bonita and stayed for one week. The resort was awesome and very impressive. The most memorable thing was how great the bar staff was at the main pool. Everyone there got my drinks fast and with a smile. I can't say enough about the great bartending service at the pool. I want to personally give... More

We were really impressed with the service at the Westin, especially in the restaurant. The food was included as part of the package tour, but the staff at the restaurant made special efforts to accomodate special needs. Chef William Peck and Manager Arlee Acosta were very professional and responsive in addressing special diet needs. We highly recommend this hotel and... More

We stayed for two days at this property as part of our Caravan tour of Panama. The property is modern, spotlessly clean, and staffed with friendly multi-lingual employees. As you would expect, the rooms, meals, etc were very good. The pools made our time outstanding. There was never an issue getting a lounger - or a drink.

The hotel is beautiful. I had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone. The staff were really helpful especially the Front Desk Supervisor who made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel really welcome. Thank you Westin Playa Bonita for making my holiday so special! We would definitely come again!

We stayed on the club level and the views from the higher levels are great. The breakfast was quite good with a nice variety of cold and hot foods to choose from. The afternoon appetizers were quite filling and could serve as a meal. The service was excellent and a large number of key employees spoke English. The service provided... More

We spent a week a this hotel. We were two adults and two small children. The property, itself, is outstanding. Beautiful water views from the room, itself. Not in the city-center, which is exactly what we expected since we wanted to relax. But, a short taxi ride from almost every where. Personnel were extremely pleasant at all times, from the... More
