Excellent Venue, Excellent F&B, Excellent installations BUT....

It is a shame that such a professional operation be overshadowed for the extremely rude and inefficient A/V service. Strongly advise meeting planners to bring their own AV from one of the many excellent suppliers that you can find in Panama City. Apart from this, and a few mosquitos typical from the tropics, it is a good venue meetings and conventions. There is wide selection of meeting rooms, ballrooms, theatre, etc...

Westin Excellence!

Excellence is defined as something that has reached the highest level of perfection. The Westin Playa Bonita Panama as a hotel and the service of its employees have achieved excellence in all categories. I would like to congratulate my FAVORITES of my time in the Westin: Ricardo Tejada, Carolina, Anggelo Chacon and Lady Ortega. And those whose service was also extra: The Lobby Staff PM (Maximo, Mailin, Ismael, Kenia), Yocelyn, Jesus, Ilda, Jonathan, Raul, Milagro, Alexandra, Billy Jean and Lorrain. I would like to thank you for making my stay at this hotel an out of this world experience. I was able to celebrate my five-year anniversary in an extraordinary way thanks to you all and I am eternally grateful to you for it. I fell in love with Panama and its people thanks to you all! In those concerning the hotel; I congratulate you. The room (and view), pool, food, gym and spa were excellent. It is a very clean hotel and the atmosphere is so good that I would like to establish it as my place of residence. I know I did not mention the names of all those who welcomed us as royalty but THANK YOU to the whole team of the Westin Panama !!

This place is simply amazing! I would recommend to everybody. Here’s why : - Hotel itself : Beautiful. Great and big rooms. Amazing view on the water. Gorgeous and clean pools. - Accommodations : Fitness center & Spa by Clarins are great. Multiples activities planned throughout the day. - Thoughtfulness : It was our wedding anniversary as we mentioned in our reservation and when we arrived to the room, cake and sparkling wine were waiting for us with a cute little note. - Food : Great options. Buffet and À la carte. Both very good, large variety. À la carte restaurants Asiana and Tierra y Fuego are a must! - Lobby bar staff (PM) : The drinks are so good, but mostly the staff makes all the difference. Anggelo Chacón, Ismael, Maximi, Mailin & Kenia are just the best! Finally, last but not least, the major reason to recommend the hotel: The whole staff ! Everybody here makes a difference, they are all amazing, I could name almost everybody I met (Jesus, Lorrain, Cynthia, Milagro, Lady, Ilda, Raul) & the way they work & do the extra to make your stay extraordinary. But here are my superstars : - Ricardo Tejada, the first person to impact our stay in the best of way, who also remained wonderful, helpful and friendly throughout the week we were here! He made our trip memorable by his kindness. - Carolina, hostess at the buffet, who remembered our names and room number, whose smile and attention made us feel like we were celebrities. - Anggelo, as mentioned before, great bartender at the Lobby Bar, but mostly he’s among the nicest people we met here. This hotel is a must. Panamá is a must. The service is impeccable. Wow!

Hidden costs

This hotel is located away from the city. It took us at least an hour and a half to get to the hotel from the airport and that's with the traffic. While the hotel itself is very luxurious, there are a lot of hidden costs that really amount to a lot! In some cases, they did not tell us that the charges were incurred only until after charging us. I shipped a package there and it arrived a bit earlier than expected and they charged me for keeping it for 2 days prior to my arrival. While I understand that this is the policy, I should have been forewarned. Overall, the stay at the hotel was okay but the trips to get out of the hotel were really very long (especially to get to the mall which is absolutely awesome!!!) With the trips being this long, the taxi fares were particularly higher than expected.

Excellent in all regards

Our 2 night stay at The Westin Playa Bonita Resort centered on rest and relaxation during our tour of Panama. The resort is modern, comfortable, and offers all the amenities a traveler might expect. Also great all-around service and a superb buffet for our meals - great variety, quality, and preparation! Loved the location and the pool and beach areas.
