Just as pictured!

The hotel was beautiful and the people were some of the friendliest I’ve encountered. The pictures of the hotel match what you see when you get there. The food was delicious and abundant. I loved every second and can’t wait to come back.

Great Bday Vacation!

If you are looking for a family-friendly, all-inclusive resort, then the Westin is a pretty good choice. All the employees were very friendly and super helpful! My favorites were Nilka (at the pool bar) and Ricardo (at the al-a-carte restaurants). Nilka checking on my family daily and we never wanted for anything!!! Housekeeping could have been better. All they do is make beds and change towels. The bathtub stayed dirty the entire week because housecleaning never cleaned it. The same milky soap scum was around the drain all week. When they changed out our towels, they never gave us face towels. We constantly had to call down to the front desk to get towels. There are some pretty basic activities for the kids during the day. One day there was a "Kid Spa" activity advertised. After finally finding the activity after getting the runaround, my son came back to tell me that all they did was take a walking tour around the spa. Kids never even got to actually experience the spa. What a dumb "activity". There also isn't any activity for adults day or night. During my stay, I was able to see a Panamanian dance group perform, but ONLY because they were there to entertain for a conference that was at the hotel. Other than that there was nothing. If a resort says they are "family-friendly" then they should offer more activities to show it! The buffet food was okay. Kitchen staff should do more about keeping gnats off the cold bar food....GROSS!!!! The steak is THE BEST al-a-carte restaurant! Starfish was TERRIBLE! The food on the menu tasted horrible and the food on the buffet wasn't any better. My son and I ate plane junk food that night for dinner. Choose your beach time wisely, the tide goes in and out during the day. When the tide is out, the is no water for several feet!!! But the four pool areas more than make up for it. All in all, my son and I enjoyed our stay at Westin Playa Bonita. But, if we had it to do over, we would have probably chosen a location that had REAL activities and better beach.

Amazing Experience

I booked this trip for my boyfriend’s birthday. And we both had such a fabulous time. The weather was beautiful, the service was amazing, and the food had flavor.

Westin PLaya Bonita

Short & Sweet - we were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to Platinum (think it's because I'm a Marriott/Starwoods Platinum member). The room was comfortable, nicely maintained and well cleaned each day. The property is spacious and well maintained as well. Several pools to choose from and all had shaded areas. Toward the end of the day each pool area had a bit of trash laying around, but that's equally the fault of sloppy guests as it is the Westin. The food was above average. We had breakfast and lunch in the buffet and dinner in one of the specialty restaurants each night. Service was generally good, 4 out of 5 of the workers were happy to help. One of 5 seemed to have attitudes and were not friendly at all - in particular one woman who worked at the lobby bar. On a good note - 2 employees who deserve commendations - Billie Jean in the lobby bar and Geoffrey who was an activity coordinator - both were excellent! The drinks were fairly watered down at all the bars, which was disappointing. We were on the all inclusive plan so it didn't matter much to us, but I did feel bad who were paying some pretty hefty prices per drink. The beach was just OK - large swing in tides each day. Gamboa tours in the lobby disappointed - left us stranded one day although we paid for a private transport and they gave us a cab another day. I'd try other options than go with Gamboa. All the folks at the concierge desk were super helpful!

What's to Love

The 4 infinity pools give you that luxurious vacation feeling and the swim-up bar is an added bonus to pool-time fun.
 

What We'd Change

It would be nice if the resort had a shuttle to and from town as taxi rides can get pricey, but with all it has to offer, you probably won't want to leave this resort very often anyway!
 

Why You Should Go

The Westin Playa Bonita gives you the serenity found on a golden sandy beach and awesome pools, and the adventure found at nearby excursions, all on the same trip.

Hotel Description

Westin Playa Bonita, Panama: All-inclusive Escape Haven

Looking for the best of both worlds? The Westin Playa Bonita, Panama is the whole package, offering serenity and adventure. Enjoy the feeling of seclusion while lying on the golden sand, surrounded by a lush, tropical rain forest. Or call upon your inner culture junkie and head out to explore the rich Panama history and excitement that lies just beyond the resort. Located only 20 minutes from bustling Panama City, the Westin allows you to live off the beaten path but offers a quick road back to the city lights if you're feeling lost without some hustle and bustle.

If relaxing by the pool with an umbrella in your drink is your MO, find a lounger near one of the 4 infinity pools at Westin Playa Bonita, Panama and drink in the pristine view of the Pacific Ocean. If you get hungry while lounging in the warm Panama sun, stop by Tidal for a quick bite. After a few hours of pool therapy, dip your toes in the sparkling ocean, located a few feet from the resort and let serenity overtake you. Want some quiet time with your honey? Drop the kiddos off at the Westin Kids Club and indulge in an afternoon of rejuvenation at the Sensory Spa. If you're more into exploring the land, grab your gear and go! Check out Casco Antiguo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or the Panama Canal's Miraflores Locks. Soak in the beauty of the Punta Bruja Nature Reserve or call on your adventurous side and go fishing off the islands of Las Perlas. If you want to really connect with nature, whale watching in the Pacific or bird watching in the tropics is just the ticket!

Once your tummy is satisfied, indulge in a nightcap at the Lobby Bar or chat with friends at the Oasis Bar, serving unique cocktails and snacks. When you just can't keep your eyes open any longer, head up to your elegant guestroom and dive into a Westin Heavenly Bed® and dream sweet Pacific dreams. It doesn't matter if you crave some much needed R&R or if you want to become a local by association. The Westin Playa Bonita, Panama truly is the best of both worlds.
