When we arrived to the resort the line was out the door and all the way past passenger pickup to check in. No one was telling any customer's what was going on. No one was offering any help. I spoke to the manager after finding out that people had been waiting over 3 hours to check in. I asked him to take our bags and we would get them later once we checked in. He did so we could start to enjoy our vacation. I went back 3.5 hours later to check in and the line was still ridiculously long. After waiting almost 5 hours we were able to check in. We were promised a room upgrade after one night, NEVER HAPPENED. We went to dinner and ordered a bottle of wine for roughly $30. When checking out that bottle of wine was mysteriously being charged at over $100. Our room was nice except for the shampoos/soaps were never refilled. We had to go to the front desk to request more. The resort had smogging done a few times while there and it was atrocious how bad it smelled but did semi-help with the bugs. Make sure you are always wearing bug spray because we still got eaten alive. The safety of the resort was great. The walking path that is advertised is NOT anything more than 500' of walking space. The service from everyone, excluding management, was wonderful but management and the main concierge woman was terrible, I think her name was Rosy. Lots of promises not kept. Some people we met at the resort had terrible things happen to them from being given a room that had people in it and were showering when they walked in. Another couple had been checked out of the system 2 days into their 6 day stay and were not told until they tried to charge their spa purchases to their room. Some people were given coupon books to use while others were not. We did not get the coupon books. Our friends did so we tried to use the wine coupon one night at the seafood restaurant they told us that we could not use more than one per table even though multiple people and bottles were ordered. We tried charging another bottle of wine to our room and were told that we didn't have any credit card on file even though we had been charging other purchases to our room. VERY UNORGANIZED and their systems needed to be updated. We would not return to this resort.

A beautiful place

The dining service needs improvement. Only one restaurant is opened daily and not much variety to choose from. Night activity also needs to improve.

Playa Bonita Resort

It's clean in natural environment, very poor dining choices, Declining entry in Dining (e.g. French Restaurant) even after reservation, and telling us to go to another restaurant [e.g. Oceana Restaurant], where you ask for Garlic bread and they give you Garlic powder in small bowl, after explaining about what is Garlic Bread, they give you one piece of last end of bread [over toasted], So language barrier is for nonenglish speaking visitor, We requested at concierge desk, to start air conditioning in the Gym, they called right away, but didn't show up for 45 mts. Now, it's too long to wait 45 mts. in Gym without A/C, in Panama with 97*F with 200% humidity. At last, I still like to say that service people were nice, smiley and always said YES. Sudhir

Not a "Dream"

If you are visiting Panama, please do yourself a favor and book elsewhere. This resort was absolutely terrible. From the customer service to the food. Bad bad bad. The only pro's I can give this location is how beautiful it looks and the cozy beds. Other than that, nothing else. Pros: -Beautiful grounds -Cozy rooms -All rooms have an ocean view (don't be fooled into upgrading) - Only three workers were nice....Sanchez & Jorge (by main pool) Zara (by preferred pool) Cons: -Lack of food and the food available was always served cold -NO ENTERTAINMENT - A few nights there was a singer in the lobby but once 11pm hit, NOTHING TO DO. Even the club was a pure dud. - My room was cleaned once in five days. I use the term cleaned lightly. The only made the bed, left two additional towels and didnt take the dirty ones. Never restocked the fridge - BUGS GALORE. I came home with my legs, arms and back full of sand fly bites. - Preferred pool was filled with dead bugs floating - Bars dont open until 11am and close at 6 unless you go to the lobby bar which closes at 11pm as well - Three restaurants but two had the same 6 things on the menu everyday. The other charged $30 if you werent a preferrable member. - Beach was horrendous. Dark, dirty and extremely rocky Bottomline: for the value I would have preferred going elsewhere even if it was all inclusive. With this place I got less than what I paid for. Such a shame.

What's to Love

All-inclusive fun for the entire family. They are going to love you this epic vacation.

The golden Pacific Panama Beach, outdoor Jacuzzi, sleek infinity pool and exotic, jungle walkways.

The stress-busting yoga classes, kayaking and more.

No matter what land or water activity you choose, there's always the fitness center (your Switzerland).

Hitting "reset" with all sorts of goodies like hydrotherapy combined with indigenous treatments.

Treatments like "State of Bliss" and the "C and Sea" facial (wrinkles-be-gone). You melting yet?

The perfect, temperate weather - never above 90 degrees. You in?

 

What We'd Change

The commute from the airport to the resort seems long, just because you're ready to get there already! But, the 45 minutes or so will fly by and when you arrive at the resort, expect a drink handed to you first thing.
 

Why You Should Go

You're minutes away from historic Panama Canal. (Visit the Wiki for a quick history update).

The Cathedral of Panama City is a must-see - it's burgeoning with old-world architecture and charm.

You can take scuba diving lessons, snorkel, rent wave runners and even water ski. Big, splashy fun.

You're just a hop away from the wonders of the Punta Bruja Nature Reserve.

There are wedding/honeymoon/anniversary packages that include wine/fresh fruit upon arrival, live music and more.

Golf is big in Panama and you'll find many courses nearby. Channel your inner Tiger.

Free shuttle into Panama City from the resort.

Panama's official currency is the US dollar, and you'll be vacationing on EST.
