Love the Westin chain, and this hotel is no different. Beautiful facility, Oceanside with the pools, restaurants , convention space, free wifi...all the goodies for a great experience. I had a slight problem at check in ( not Westin's fault), but they handled it quickly and completely...with more than total satisfaction. Thanks to Armando, Jose and a very special thanks...

But somehow apparently it didn't go through. When I try to check in, there wasn't anything set. Mariam the manager promise me to take care of it...

It's a beautiful hotel set in a tropical jungle atmosphere. Service and facilities were top notch. The pools and poolside service were great. The room was immaculate and equipped with all amenities. All in all, a very relaxing atmosphere. Try it, you'll be glad you did!

The hotel is superb, nicely designed and groomed. You are minutes from Panama City and the canal. To make things even better the people are friendly and service is impeccable. A special thanks to Marilyn G from the lobby bar. You elevated the mood and atmosphere at your station with your energy and charm.

One of the most beautiful pool area I have ever visited. Multiple pools, very quite and relaxing with plenty of pool chairs. Never have to worry about a shortage of sun or shaded area to relax both around the many pools and beach area. The food for lunch and dinner was very average but we usually found at least one...

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was nice with a beautiful view of the ocean. At night, we could see the lights of the ships lined up waiting their turn to enter the Panama Canal. Dalys at the pool and Our server Ismael de Sedas provided awesome service. Muchas gracias.

Our stay at the Westin was wonderful. However, the highlight of our trip was hanging out at the pool. The backdrop was beautiful and the grounds kept immaculate. The people who were working on the grounds should get a raise. They work nonstop. Also, Ivan T., who led the exercises and activities in the pool area was topnotch. He has...
