We had a great time at the resort. All the staff was very kind and help full. The rooms were kept very clean as were the grounds. We did not have a problem with bugs like my wife and I thought we may have being in Panama and so close to the rain forest. We liked being close enough to... More

Great hotel. Staff is friendly and go out of their way to make your stay excellent. Nice pools, adult area, large lobby and lobby bar area. Plenty of excursions to book. Most special tide you will ever see. Away from the busy area so you can relax.

Panama Playa Bonita was a wonderful resort. The staff was EXCELLENT, accommodating and very friendly. The restaurants on the property were very good but it would have been nice to have a couple more. The gift shop was nice could be expanded alittle more. The room was very nice, the only draw back was having to keep the outside door... More

We went to the resort with a large group and had a fantastic time! The rooms are very clean and all of the staff were very accommodating and pleasant. The entire place is kept clean at all times and very well groomed. The internet service could be a little stronger in the rooms, since we had a difficult time connecting... More

We went on a vendor trip with First Supply and everything was excellent! The food the people, accommodations, were all lovely. I would recommend this trip to anyone! There wasn't any reason to be afraid of moving around the country freely and the history of the Panama Canal was very interesting and relevant.

Could use more restaurants on site. Would be nice to have more of a game room. Staff did a good job of taking care of our needs. There was a nice relaxation area for the adults that children were not allowed in.

I read reviews ..I don't write them. But after experiencing the Panama Playa Bonita resort, I felt I needed to write this. We have traveled outside the USA many times, but this was one of the VERY best vacations we ever had! We enjoyed the food, especially at the special meals at the Lighthouse. Imagine sitting outside, no bugs, not... More

The food was good, customer service was good.. The westin next door is a true 5 star, but this hotel is a solid 4 star. Nice staff. I would swim in the beach water, but interesting to walk in during low tide

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
