What We Love

  • 4 on-site infinity pools create an unforgettably luxurious vacation vibe.  The swim-up bar is an added bonus for those looking to enhance their pool-time fun.

Things to Know

  • 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.
Looking for the best of both worlds? The Westin Playa Bonita offers guests the "whole package". Whether you are looking for serenity, adventure or something in between, the Westin Playa Bonita is the ideal choice for spending quality time in paradise.

Enjoy the feeling of seclusion while lying on the golden sand.  Or, head away from the beach and surround yourself with the cool comfort of the lush, tropical rain forest. If you're ready to mingle with the locals, channel your inner culture junkie and head out to explore the rich history of Panama 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 ready to reconnect.

    Simply Amazing!

    We stayed here for two nights as part of a Caravan tour. It was all inclusive. The buffet meals were very good. The staff all were friendly and helpful. The multiple pools were so nice for swimming. The beach was lovely but quite windy. The room was very clean and comfortable.

    Extremely clean and a fantastic hotel!!

    The Westin Playa Bonita is a stunning hotel that is extremely clean and spotless. The employees are extremely nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and we look forward to returning back. We had a green view room on the 17th floor and we loved it. The hotel has multiple pools to choose from, lots of chairs to select from. The pools were nice and clean many to choose from. We really enjoyed the buffet, lots to choose from and high quality food something for everyone. The ice cream place was a nice touch as well. There are hammocks and circle beds around the pool area which was nice. The rooms were very nice, and we had a balcony. The beds in the room were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in a hotel before, we slept so well. The only thing that this hotel lacks is entertainment in the evenings, its nice to see a show of some sorts to show the culture of Panama and dancing etc. There were a few nights were there was karaoke in a conference room that was empty, no one knew about it. Other people that stayed in the hotel at the same time as us also mentioned that they would have liked a entertainment show of sorts as a option have after eating dinner. The a-la-cart dinners were extremely good., you won't leave hungry. The Tierra y Fuego restaurant (the steak house) was out of this world. extremely good. The service at this restaurant was excellent. Our server Yamileth L. went above and beyond to give us good service. She got our order correct the first time. She checked with us several times to see how the meal was and what she can do for us. The meal was delicious. She was very pleasant and professional dealing with us throughout our meal. We really enjoyed our experience at the Tierra y Fuego restaurant with her. We will defiantly come back to the Westin hotel next time we come to Panama!! We loved our stay.

    A quiet weekend away from the city but close to it

    Better than braving two hours of jammed traffic to reach a beachside resort. It's just minutes away from downtown Panama, same top-class facilities, top-food, relaxing environment. Many families with children in spite of relatively stiff pricing.

    This is an amazing hotel!

    We stayed here 2 nights as part of our Caravan tour and it is gorgeous! We had the all inclusive package and with 5 pools, swim up bars, impeccable service and the meals were excellent! This is a large resort with nightly entertainment in the lounge area, there is an ice cream parlor onsite and at lunch time they put out a finger food buffet outside the pool area. Plenty of seating around the pools with attendants constantly attending to your needs. The beach area is extensive but due to stingrays and jellyfish no one went in. But at low tide there is plenty to explore along the rocks. The rooms are big & quiet with a shower, separate tub area, coffee area and large closets. Very comfortable bedding. Our room overlooked the mountains but with 5 pools you won't be staying in your room much!
