“good experience in the westin hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

The westin hotel in Panama is a hotel with style and comfort. I highly recommend it for any time you want to visit that city. The service is excellent and has large area and in the lobby with very soft armchairs. Fitness area is delicious and has good view and you can enjoy a swimming pool with infinity view over Panama

Room Tip: All rooms are equipped with very comfortable beds

The hotel is nice and New .. Rooms are big and nice.
The pool was to small for the amount of people they have there.. They have 3 pools and 2 of then are reserve for "special rooms" also the beach is contaminated and you can really swim in there.
They have 3 buffets that none of them had a decent selection ... Always the same type of food and no Variety ..
Also they don't let gust come inside the hotel a manager at night name Orlando Niño told me that if I wanted I could leave with my guest but they couldn't come in ... The way he tread me was offensive and I had to complain the next day ...
In general ppl where nice but a bit slow in there service ..
I wouldn't go back to that hotel having so many other and better options like the brand new trump hotel . Same price better service ..

We stayed at the Westin for a week the end of February. My father was in the Air Force so I lived in Panama for 6 years, 40 years ago. This was my first trip back. My brother and our wives joined me for this outstanding vacations. The Westin had the best rooms we have ever experienced. The ocean view from the balcony, bed and tub were breathtaking. We ate at the buffets and enjoyed them very much. They had themes each night so you didn't have the same food every night. The fajitas were our favorites. The ice cream parlor was an everyday occurrence (only wish they had vanilla each day). A few of our favorite workers were: poolside servers- Sadie and William, our pool activity workers-Brian, Lorenzo and Sheroqui, concierge Tomas and food servers- Irma and Ana. Try the passion fruit, mango, rum daiquiri from the middle pool bar, they were our favorite. They were pleasant, kind and caring to all of us. Our only suggestion would be to have cash at the front desk to break our larger bills so we could tip the wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the view of the ocean. It was worth it.

2 servers were exceptionally pleasant and good at their jobs. Alejandra at Pacifica Pool and Tarem Meindez.. They were smiling the whole time and engaged in fun conversations with our group . Their service was quick and often Hopefully this will be noted on their job report. thank you.

We stayed at the resort at the end of February. We were travelling with a large group and the hotel was well prepared for us. Our room was always cleaned by the time we came back in the early afternoon, and cleaned well. The food was good, especially the Steakhouse, where all of our food was delicious! The resort for our group was an all inclusive, however due to the fact that some people are paying for the drinks they aren't watered down. Take note! The rum punch trolley that came by my lounge chair was my favourite. The pools are great, loved the swim up bar! The staff make great efforts to speak english and always had a smile for us. We honestly didn't come across a single grumpy employee. They even started our week off with opening the bar up at 6:00 am for the huge group of Canadians to watch the gold medal game. They weren't quite prepared for how much Canadians on holiday can drink while watching their beloved team. They quickly brought in extra staff and we had a great morning! The only complaint we had was in the afternoon they seemed to be chipping tile in a room near ours and because there is no carpeting it was quite loud and prevented us from having an afternoon sleep. We are early risers but friends of ours were awakened by the sound in the morning. The wifi is great, although weak by the pools. First world problems! We were warned about the bugs on the beach so we didn't go for any walks on it and made sure to use the bug wipes provided, but still arrived home with plenty of bites. The water didn't look to enticing so we stuck by the pools. There is nothing nearby so if you are hoping for shopping, or anything else you will have to head out of the area. There is one more thing that we have noticed with many hotels nowadays, there is a big open "window" in the bathroom with a see through blind (pointless) that you can drop down. The toilet and shower are in their own enclosed spaces with frosted (but still see-through) glass doors. Not sure how you would deal with that with a family sharing the room.

Because the hotel is a bit isolated, (about 15-20 minutes by car to the city) I thought there would be more beach activities. All that was available were kayaks. The beach is not great, very shelly , and I wouldn't swim in the ocean it was very murky. I supposed it was not too surprising because of all the massive shipped parked nearby, it just didn't seem very clean. The best food service, we found, was in the main dining area(buffet), the specialty restaurants weren't too concerned with that. The beds in the rooms were great and the pool area was very nice with great tasting pina coladas.

I liked the area the resort was in not too far from the mall and the taxi wasn't too expensive , The hotel was clean and our room was made up every day. The pools are very warm and inviting , other then the 1 by the end of the week it wasn't running and was kind of murky. they do need to have more people that can understand English ,but we got our point across 1 way or another. the restaurants are good for food ,but they were running out of a few items on the menu after 700 or more people in for a week.

Room Tip: We had a great room right @ the end of the hall facing the ocean on the 13 floor. we had a great vie...
