When we arrived late afternoon there was only one person working @ the check in counter. Since Transat doesn't really feed you, we decided to have a... More

What a wonderful resort! Not overly crowded, great quality food and outstanding service! The rooms have great beds, big baths and are clean and well kept. I wished that I could have stayed longer. It is close to the city so really easy and away from the noise and pollution..really relaxing

My wife and I arrived in late November to a hotel that lacked all the customer services you would expect from a world class hotel chain. The staff appeared unconcerned with any care of making the guest feel welcomed or accommodated. The staff did not notify us of the executive lounge closing. This would not have been an issue if...

Our family of 4 ( 2 adults / 2 young daughters) had a really nice time staying at the Westin Playa Bonita 11/19-11/27/16. Despite the wet and soggy tropical rain filled week, we managed to lounge at the pool on 2 different semi-sunny days. The Westin has 5 pools to choose from and all next to the beach. During those...

Good place if you don't want to go far from the city. Hotel is expensive for what you get. Food quality is poor. Service is very good overall. I want to outstand the service I receive at the main restaurant from Mr. Ismael De Sedas. He was so kind and supportive that was the best from the hotel.

Room: Very spacious, functionally, and well appointed (Oceanview suite) Hotel appearance is luxurious and has great facilities. Unfortunately, the advertised events are not always executed. At the same time, staff is very friendly and accommodating. Pool are very clean and nice. Hotel is in a very quiet area of Panama City and is a 5$ uber ride away from downtown... More

The hotel is rather nice and we were upgraded to an ocean view suite. The breakfast is very impressive with excellent variety and good service. The pool water was bit too cool for our tastes. The location is remote so that means getting to/from the hotel for lunch, dinner, etc. was a bit difficult. This to-be-expected difficulty was greatly compounded... More

Despite the poor weather hurricane and wind, we still managed to have a great time at playa bonita. The staff were excellent, and they were happy to assist us with whatever we needed. I do not speak the best spanish but Digna Ilda and Richard were always very helpful when we were by the pool. We will definetly be back!
