Overall our stay was fantastic. The guest room was very roomy and stunning. Upon our late arrival Genesis at the front desk was very personable and polite. The food was a bit pricey, we ate a late night snack that was cold and not very tasty, the food by the pool in the afternoon buffet was also not very tasty... More

It's a beautiful place, but my family and I are having problem getting the money back from the deposit, My sister put $400 on her credit card and her expenses were $260.30. The clerk at the check out desk said the money will return to her credit card in 24-48 hours, but was not true. We have called many times... More

We followed-up this case with our accounting department from your first call, however the process took a couple of days to communicate your bank and request this refund, which is already reflected in your financial report.

My husband and I went to Panama to celebrate my 50th birthday. (This was our third trip to Panama.) I used Westin hotel points for our stay and my Platinum status was recognized and we were upgraded to a suite with an ocean view.

We arrived at the hotel after dark. The check in went very smoothly and staff very congenial. In the morning I couldn't believe how beautiful the ocean view was. We were looking out over the Pacific at lovely mountain islands and the transit ships waiting on the horizon to enter the canal. The beach was at low tide and waters... More

Room, property and view was great. Had a Panamanian buffet dinner on Friday night and the food was a real treat and server Ismael de Sadas did a great job.

I had a lovely suite looking out at the ships waiting to enter the Canal. The staff were all welcoming and knowledgeable. The buffets were well presented with a wide variety of dishes. The bars served a decent drink. My meeting room was adequate for our needs. The Internet was included and had a strong signal.
