The grounds r beautiful at this pretty hotel. It sits right on the Pacific and there were people shelling right out front at low tide. The lobby and restaurant r deafening with sound bouncing off all the hard surfaces in the spaces. It is impossible to have a quiet dinner in there or visit in the open area around the... More

I stayed here from Jan 16-22. The weather was absolutely wonderful and the pool and grounds are great. Kervin, Carlos and Sanchez took awesome care of us at the poolside bar and made sure we had a great time. An intern, Alison, from Toronto also helped to make sure we had everything we needed. The beach is not the kind... More

The Intercontinental Playa Bonita was a beautiful hotel with a perfect location. There was a lot to do and it was an extremely relaxing environment. The best part of our stay however was the services provided by the animation staff, Edxon, William, Daniel, Amzi, Cielo, Joel, and Kristyna were all wonderful and made our stay ten times better than we...

After few days of crazy hectic chaos in Panama this hotel is a welcome respite. Its a large compound and rooms were also spacious. Beautiful garden and beach front. Big restaurant area. Lots of people, very busy. Beach did not look too inviting for a swim but it was a nice area to rest relax and read while enjoying sea... More

I stayed here Jan 5-12 2015 as part of a package deal with Sunwing. The airline flew direct from YYZ into Rio Hato and it was a 1.5 hour shuttle to the hotel. The hotel is beautiful.

This was our third time at this beautiful resort. We got a great service from the concierge staff. They are wonderful and made sure that we felt welcome. We felt that the service has improved since the last time we were there. Our kids love the pools, but the pool service could be more customer oriented. If we are back... More

I went to this hotel for 3 days with the all inclusive plan. To begin with the hotel desperately needs to be renewed. It just doesnt feel new anymore, but well, it isnt.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was large with a good view of the ships waiting to enter the canal. However our room was probably 500meters from the reception area which was quite a problem when DH hurt his foot.
