Pools, Beachfront and Golf - All in One
JMurphy63, Phoenix, Arizona

We stayed at the Buenaventura towards the end of our driving tour of Panama. It was the right blend of luxury, service and relaxation. The room was spacious, very well-appointed and had a nice balcony overlooking the lagoon and golf course. The many pools on the property offered quiet cabanas and swim up bars. The beach and ocean were clean and serviceable, but the real attraction is in the pools, the golf course and the other amenities. We dined at two restaurants on the property, both excellent. As our room included breakfast, we were pleased to see a full buffet with everything one could want. Last, I did play one round of golf during our stay. The course is impeccably maintained, the pro shop accommodating and the overall experience well worth the cost. The Buenaventura has a country club feel that would appeal to families and couples alike.

Spent two days at Buenaventura resort. From the onset to arrival treated with great hospitality. Checking was smooth. Upgraded to suite for being an elite Marriott member. Front desk went out of the way to ensure our stay was good. Suite was clean and spacious. Food at restaurants at property was great especially the Japanese one. Special thanks to Raphael and Front desk manager. Whom treated us above and beyond our expectation. Being slow season were able to enjoy all amenities on our well. Only little disappointment was could swim at beach due to high waves. Overall had a great stay. Will be back on my next Copa miles run to Panama.

Luxurious hotel with personal caring service!

Our car started giving us trouble on the way back from Bocas Del Toro to Panama City. We decided to stay here because of a good deal on Bookings dot com. I expected it to be personality-less and "just another hotel". But the staff were incredible. The restaurant on the water has great tapas, and a really great wine selection (lots of good Malbec). The rooms (we got a Premier King) were beautiful and luxurious. We spent the entire day that our car was being fixed sipping cocktails in a pool we had all to ourselves near the beach (there's a few pools to choose from). Most of all Daniel (Reception desk) was super helpful. He actually set us up with a place that would fix our car at a reasonable proce, arranged transport to and from the car service place and arranged for late check out. It is rare to have large hotels give such personal service. We returned to Panama City and immediately started planning a trip back, with friends.

Excellent hotel/resort 2+ hours from airport

My son and I stayed here for 2 days on our way home from Ecuador. The rooms are gorgeous and perfect— 5 stars. The facilities are amazing— spa and pools and bars and so many delicious restaurants— 5 stars. The resort property is more like 4 or even 3. The lagoon is a murky green color, the beach has lots of black stuff on it, lots of wear and tear is evident in the furniture and floor tiling. I would go back, it suited our purposes, but I would try other resorts first.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in August, during the rainy season. There were very few guest at the resort due to it being the off-season, but we didn't mind. We loved all the attention from the staff. Carlos at the front desk checked us in and was a huge help for the rest of our stay. They upgraded our room for free, and helped us book a tee time and massages. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, even when raining. My husband and I went to the beach, even with the drizzle, since it was still warm and humid. Even though we were the only ones at the beach (for the first 30min) a server still came out and took our drink order. We did go golfing, and it truly is a great (yet pricey) course. However, we got completely rained out after 6 holes. What was worse was because of the rain, it took the resort 45 minutes to come get us! We had no choice but to wait with one other couple on the front steps as the golf course closed due to the rain at the end of the afternoon. We highly highly recommend the paella from the restaurant at the beach club. It was so amazing we had it twice in 48 hours. The breakfast buffet was also great, made to order omelets with lots of other options. If you go get sushi there, get the Canal Roll. Overall, we loved it. We would absolutely go back. But if you go in August, be prepared for rain.
