This hotel makes to forget about stress... trust me... I spent 3 nights and 4 days in this hotel, there is no bad thing... the price is really accurate with the service, the hotel staff is really kind, the room service is really fast, it is a clean hotel, the bar is awesome.. the view from almost every part of the hotel is really nice. If you want to have a nice time in Panama, you must visit this hotel. I love it! I hope to go back to panama in a few months and definitely I will stay again! The breakfast is delicious! The lunch is the only thing that I recommend to ask for a menu... the buffet lunch has not a great taste, but it is nice.. The dinner is amazing! If you go, you will enjoy it!!

Room Tip: Choose the Sea View Room.

I spent one night at the Westin Playa Bonita and had a wonderful experience. I stayed in an ocean view suite on the 10th floor which had two large rooms and two bathrooms. The living room was complete with a couch, television, dining table and balcony. The bedroom was large though the master bath is strangely in the center of the room, visible to anyone else sharing the room with you. The hotel is new and feels very clean the way a 5-star property should. The tide in front of the hotel goes out during most of the day leaving you to use the several pools on the property. The beach is quite rocky, but the water is warm. Food service was a bit slow in the Starfish Grill - it took over 40 minutes for food to arrive and there were only two tables seated. Aside from that, the hotel lives up to its Westin name and it's the only place I'd want to stay in Playa Bonita.

My partner and I had toe wonderful fortune to spend our first four days in Panama at the beautiful Westin Hotel in Playa Bonita. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and very clean. They offer wonderful amenities including like 6 pools, on site restaurants, and a lounge for preferred guests with a beautiful roof top lounge. It is the perfect self contained vacation spot for anyone who is looking to relax and get away from the grind. This one is a must see!

We stayed 19 nights at this hotel. We have Starwood Platinum status which is very well recognized (suite Upgrade).
At check in we were taken straight to the 19th floor to the Platinum lounge. The lounge is excellent, well stocked with most top shelf alcohol & soft drinks.
The evening snacks are very good & the staff are excellent.

The breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice.
All the staff were very attentive & if they couldn't speak english they got someone who could.
Seek out Isabella she is an asset to the hotel, great service & really good english.

The only down side is the distance from the city $25-30 in a taxi. There is no hotel shuttle at all.
We would stay again at this hotel for sure.

Our stay at the Westin at Playa Bonita was a great experience. The hotel is less than a year old with 600 rooms. The property is very large. They have done a wonderful job with the grounds, with its beautiful landscape of trees and flowers. The menu and food was great. The staff was friendly and provided excellent service. If it is your first visit, when making your reservation, ask for an overview of the grounds, you will enjoy it...My husband and I enjoyed our stay and plan to return.

Room Tip: The view from a higher floor helps you see not only Taboga island but also the vessels waiting to enter the Panama Canal. Beautiful view!
