I love to travel, and by my many reviews you should know that I've seen a little bit of everything. I try to be objective, so I can give the reviewers a realistic snap shot of a property so Ill review this property the same way. I attended a group trip with Timeless Brands and their Wanna Play Getaway annual... More

This is very luxury hotel with everything you can imagine, i was really pleased with service, kind staff and tasty food. This hotel also offers trips to interesting places in Panama. Only one thing (except the style of the main building which is in my opinion too `pompous`) was the sea and the beach. So if you wanna spend a... More

Dear helensshead, Thank you for staying at The Westin Playa Bonita. I appreciate and wish to thank you for the kind comments intended for some of the staff.

The beach is meh, but the pools are massive, so who needs the beach? And the tides there are crazy, I wouldn't want to swim in the ocean anyway. But you go to Panama to see the canal, not the beaches.

The rooms were amazing. My balcony view of the beach was awesome. I enjoyed the pools, the food, the drinks, the entire experience. The staff made sure that I and the group I traveled with were taken care of at all times. I would definitely return of given the opportunity. Thank you all.

Great! Rooms are very satisfactory but the pool and beach area is superb. Loved close proximity to Panama City. Property has multiple restaurants which is great for variety of culinary experiences. One of the most interesting things is to be able to view the lineup of ships coming into the canal from the Pacific ocean.

Our view was amazing, the food was amazing, the drinks were amazing, and the staff was amazing. I commend the management team on the level of service provided. We were apart of a very large group, and they... More

I arrived to Panama City on June 24, 2016. The hotel is beautiful with lots of amenities. The staff is extremely friendly but most of all the food is delicious. The downside of this hotel is that it is business traveler oriented and caters to that particular crowd. The best part of the trip was the fact the panama expansion... More

Actually they have activities for kids but as the pool and the hotel is dedicated to kids, they must have to develop more activities for kids that gets bored easily, specially in the winter that the rain don't help too much. The staff is excellent, we had problem in the bathroom and a person with lastname Schmitt help to us... More
