The property was lovely. Especially compared to the highrise Westin hotel next door, the Intercon's architecture had more charm and a appeared relaxing like a resort should feel. The pools were lovely and I was very glad for the adults-only pool, though there was no supervision so anyone could have used it. The service was generally nice, staff were very... More

We're only on day two, but this resort is excellent all round. The beds are the best ever, the bathroom is gorgeous, and the view from the 4th floor will blow you away. Staff do not speak much English, but if you make the effort to speak a little Spanish, they are the friendliest people (Americans take note!) as this... More

Wanted a couple of days r&r between meetings not too far from the city. Nice location. Attractive pool and gardens. Found adults only pool but surprised to find family with a baby and another with a 5 year old running around. Went and sat by pleasant infinity pool the next day only to have all the local waiters and hotel... More

The hotel, next to the Westin, offers an ideal conference get-away not far from city, but was lacking in one essentIal basic for those who needed to work at the conference: functioning wifi service. In spite of my colleagues' and my efforts over several days to get the hotel to fix the problem nothing was done. Otherwise the rooms were... More

I booked this trip at the last moment and was elated with this property. What is really special about it is that is so peaceful and quiet. I was debating whether I should have stayed at the Westin until I walked down to see it. The Intercontinental is not as modern but is hands down a better experience. It has... More

We signed up for the "all inclusive". Found out when we got there that there are LEVELS of all inclusive and our "all inclusive" only covered the buffets and only certain kinds of drinks. For example, we could have a margarita, but not a mojito. We could have a beer, but not a light beer. After a few days, the... More

Just returned from spending 6 nights at the InterContinental Playa Bonita. It was a very quiet week as far as other guests because there were several conferences going on but for us (three women) it was perfect. As we were checking out we could see an entire different clientele checking in...lots of families with children so it must just depend... More

This is a fine hotel, the rooms are spaceous and the aircon works. The food was good too. What a shame that they can't supple an internet connection. I spent 4 nights there so it wasn´t a once off thing. Also there are no waterbotles waiting for the guest in the room. The little firigde in my room was locked.... More

The Resort is beautiful, clean and the food is fantastic! My girlfriend and I travelled for a week vacation as we usually do in the winter. We were thinking this would be a lively resort with entertainment and lots of tourists doing the same things. This resort is more a conference hotel then a all inclusive resort. There is no... More

The Playa Bonita is a very nice all inclusive resort- it's situated outside the City so taxis would be needed to go into Panama City ($25 each way)- it was our last 3 days in Panama, so we were done exploring & just hung out at the resort. The greatest thing about it is that they have a separate area... More
