The place was super clean and staff was great! Kervin and Ricardo rolled out the red carpet for our group. We asked for events on different days and they made it happen. Everytime I even looked like I needed anything it was taken care of! Top notch place cause of the top notch staff!

The Westin Playa Bonita in Panama City is a beautiful hotel on the water. The hospitality was fabulous and the food the best we had on our tour. The accommodations were 5 star. All of the staff we spoke to were amazingly helpful from the life guards on the beach, the bartenders, the front desk, restaurant staff and housekeeping too....

stayed at this resort from December 26 2016 to Jan 5 2017.. Weather was fantastic the entire trip, 95 + with sunny skies everyday. My wife had several bites from the mosquitoes, until she bought some OFF lotion from the lobby store she then had no issues. The bartenders and waiters especially Richard, Jesus, Lui's, Hnatione were amazing. You could...

We spent 8 days here and each was better than the next. We set up beach chairs each morning on the grass in the shade of palm trees down near Oceanica and spent the next four hours listening to birds and waves and water falls. The beach was not Bonita in the classical sense but had millions of shells that...

I'm not normally a fan of all inclusive properties, but I was really impressed with this place. The food was excellent at all of the restaurants i tried and the staff was willing to bend over backwards to accommodate. Marcos Saturno seemed to appear everytime we had a special request for our group. Thank you

We chose the all inclusive package. Excellent pool service was provided by Estefani Gonzalez. Marcos, the manager also came by frequently to ensure our needs were met. The pools are very relaxing. The food at Tierra y Fuego was awesome but make sure to make reservations with the concierge before going.

We were at Playa Bonita two evenings and a day while on a tour of Panama and it was a wonderful break. We upgraded to a higher floor with an ocean view and it was well worth it. Public areas are spacious and pleasant and the pools and lounge facilities great. Only complaint: no whirlpool or Jacuzzi on premises. Food...

Room was clean but shower pooled water so tended to smell damp and attract mosquitos. Pool areas looked great, nice landscaping. Not enough choices for restaurants as the a la carte were often closed. Starfish was the worst - noisy, chaotic. Service could be very good and then awful - no consistency. Also restaurant opening times were inconsistent. Drinks overpriced...
