The hotel is located in a very beautiful area. The grounds are clean a kept clean. The swimming pool areas are clean and nice. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff is very polite and attentive. The big dissapointment was the food and drinks. I stayed with my family on October 2014 and we were delighted with the food... More

We had a destination wedding at the Intercontinental Playa Bonita in late April 2015. Having fallen in love with Panama, we booked here based on a recommendation and pictures. Although we found the communication during the many months of wedding preparation slow (2-3 weeks for email responses), the hotel pulled through with a beautiful event. The location was gorgeous -...

I went here with my friend on a Groupon deal. We loved it here! The customer service was great, especially Juan Pablo and Donovan in food service. We kayaked, swam in the pool and ocean, and enjoyed lunches in the open-air restaurant facing the ocean. Our room was comfortable, clean, and we had a great view from our balcony. It's... More

Well this resort falls short of what the Intercontinental brand stands for. It's old in style and in need of a refurbish. However The pool area and grounds are nice. The room is large but the air conditioning sounds like a jet engine. The club lounge was well worth it, we did not go all inclusive and it seems they... More

I am a bit torn regarding this resort. The grounds are lovely, as you can see in the photos, but I've been to much more sophisticated and service-oriented resorts. The rooms are nice, but the showers are not. All rooms have an ocean view (some more than others). I cannot comment on the value as this was booked as part... More

Our family just returned from a 5 night stay here and could not be more pleased. What a great property! The architecture of the property seems to be geared towards the Panama of Old with all the modern day touches. Everyone of the rooms faces the Pacific where at any time you can see in the distance a dozen or... More
