This is, without a doubt, the nicest place we have stayed in Panama. It is out of the city a few miles but well worth it. Huge, beautiful resort complete with three restaurants, several swimming pools, kayak rentals, swim up bar, etc. Every room has a stunning ocean view and the rooms are large, comfortable, and immaculate.

We are spending the final days of our 14 day stay at this wonderful resort. From the moment we arrived, all the staff have been friendly and helpful. The hotel has been maintained to an excellent standard. Our room is on the 4th floor which, like all the rooms here, overlooks the Pacific Ocean; the higher the floor, the better... More

We visited Playa Bonita in May for Memorial Day. We had a great time. We had club level but only utilized it for breakfast. We are not drinkers but we were aware that they had drinks in the evenings. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The pool were nice and overlooked the beach. It was so tropical. The staff was attentive.... More

This resort surpassed our expectations. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They didn't always speak English but were more than willing to try and figure out what we needed. Our room was nice and well kept. The food was excellent and the a la carte at the Lighthouse restaurant was elegant... More

We spent a week here in late October on our honeymoon. The pictures on the hotel website do not do this property justice. It is a beautiful, well-maintained, immaculately clean resort. The staff was unfailingly friendly, with everyone willing to speak English to accommodate us (even the painters). The highlight, by far, is the infinity edge pool that butts right... More

Everyone working at the hotel tried their best to accommodate any request we made and they all were very friendly. The rooms had excellent views and I recommend staying in the upper floors for the best unobstructed views. We never had any issues getting taxi's or getting on our sight seeing trips, however we didn't get to go on one... More

The hotel is beautifully laid out and the amenities very nice. Attention to detail was performed by entire staff. Kervin Cubilla at the pool bar was great! He gave my wife and I great service our entire stay and always served us with a smile.

The intire trip was excellent. The food was great. The service was high class. Enjoyed the time with my wife away from the kids. The views of the pacific ocean were breathe taking. The entire staff was excellent from the time we got off the airplane until they dropped us back at the airport.
