I stayed at the Intercontinental Playa Bonita Resort and Spa for 2 days (end of March 2015), hoping to relax and have a good time. Instead, I found out that the swimming pool area was not well kept (part of it was closed and full of algae) and (this was the worst part) that the area was infested by sand... More

Stayed here July 17-24th, flew Sunwing for an all-inclusive one week trip. Food: 2/10! Buffet: If you like bland hospital food then this is the place for you! They charge $17.50 American for the breakfast buffet and the selection is poor. You have very limited choices and get a cheap feeling about the food selection; they put out the bare... More

Our room was just fantastic: best of our 10 day trip. The views from the balcony were amazing, and everything was very clean, with manicured lawns. Also, the service was great: every employee we interacted with was courteous, pleasant, and helpful, right down to the busboys. One drawback is that although the beach is beautiful, visitors are warned not to... More

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 -...

As guests of the hotel we were not part of an all inclusive package, consequently the costs were quite high for the limited menu available.Portions were small with few choses unless you proceeded with the buffets.Alcoholic drinks were of poor quality and limited chooses.Nightly...

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
