I just returned from a wonderful and relaxing stay at Dreams Playa Bonita over the Thanksgiving holiday with a group of four. I admit, we were all a little worried by some of the unfavorable reviews on Trip Advisor prior to our vacation, but I am pleased to report those negative comments were completely unfounded. I’ve been to about ten... More

The resort is absolutely breathtaking. Laying by the infinity pool & looking out into the ocean, you can see islands in the distance and the ships waiting for the canal. It is a very relaxing place! There is also an adult only pool that is very quiet & has a nice little waterfall in the middle. The main infinity pool... More

Youngest used the kids club which she enjoyed, pools were well maintained. Beach is ok to look at but didn't swim there, not sure you can - tide also... More

Not as expected and not worthy of this chain. Arrived late, compliments of Sunwing. No record of my reservation but staff soon remedied that. Restaurants all closed after 11. Room service offered but hard to track down. Eventually (2 AM) a mediocre Club sandwich was provided. Pros: Lovely location. Clean rooms. Some staff were exemplary. Cons: The tide goes out... More

Please understand before traveling that Panama is a Spanish-speaking country. If your Spanish is weak (or limited), you may encounter communication challenges with many of the Spanish-dominant staff. This remodeled resort, a former InterContinental property, was originally branded as Secrets Playa Bonita. We booked the trip in March 2016. The resort was later closed for additional remodeling over the summer,... More

Beautiful hotel & grounds! Restaurant food was good. There weren't many choices each night but I'm sure it's because they are new & getting off the ground. All the staff was wonderful especially Zac our Preferred Club pool bartender!

We came for our 1st year anniversary. The staff though spoke limited English tried their best to communicate with us our Spanish wasn't every well either. We learned a few words in Spanish and most of them picked up a few more words in English for us. No doubt they will continue to improve considering this staff is still fairly... More

The room in the hotel, 462, was nice, with comfortable beds, clean, and usual amenities. We were there for a week in November 2016. The staff were welcoming and helpful. Pool and bar staff were great. We've been to several hotels in the chain including Dreams and Secrets in Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, as well as Now Amber. All... More
