    Piso19 service

    The floor dedicated to Westin Club members too time in engaging with clients. They made sure that you felt welcomed and that your needs were meet. Whether it was remembering your name or preference s you felt at ease making the experience personable. Marisol especially made me feel welcomed whenever I visited the social club I looked forward to visiting the area daily.

    Marilyn at Piso 19!

    The Westin Club (Piso 19) was our favorite place to visit. Marilyn Gonzalez made each night special by providing great service and always had a smile to greet us. Each evening she introduced us to local desserts like the Oreo and chocolate cakes. My husband and I have found our new favorite country to visit and our fantastic worker, Marilyn, at the Westin. We were celebrating my birthday and it was delightful! ¡Gracias!

    worst experience ever

    In January this year we stood close to 2 weeks in this hotel. I am a Titanium-Member with Marriott BonVoy and have a lot of experience with these family hotels. We had to leave Panama 1 day earlier and we were told that this one night will be credited to my credit card within 14 days. That was on the 24th of January! Now we have the 15th of April and I am STILL waiting on this credit. And nobody really cares at this hotel. In other Marriott family hotels a credit back to a credit card is done in a matter of days. My last email to this hotel is unanswered for 14 days. Shame on that service!!

    Great location and views!

    Overall a good experience - special recognition for Marilyn in the Westin Concierge Lounge on 19 and to Linda O in Guest Relations who made extra efforts to make our stay enjoyable. This hotel has a great location, views, and pools. The service was 50 - 50, some hit or miss. Overall the food needs lots of improvement.
