    Bed bugs BEWARE

    The Westin was beautiful, there is no denying that. However our first night at the Westin was not a good experience. We traveled a long time to get to the Westin from San Blas island and was pretty exhausted when we got there so went straight to the room (which was incredibly beautiful and the ocean view was amazing). We grabbed a late lunch at Star Fish Grill which was reasonable and delicious. We went to bed extremely early around 7pm. Before I went to bed, I had zero bites on my body. I made sure to take precautions at the first two places we stayed (Gamboa Rainforest and San Blas Islands). We did not sleep with the windows/ door open. I noticed throughout the night that I was extremely itchy. When I woke up the next morning, I had 200+ bed bug bites all over my body, mainly on my leg, thighs, and ankles. I knew they were bed bugs immediately. They bit in a zig zag pattern following my veins, were small red lumps that extremely itched, and since I am in the Microbiology/Parasitology field knew they were not sand flies or "no see ums". My doctor also confirmed the bites were bed bugs today. I moved our suit cases into the bathroom and worked to get our room moved ASAP. The front desk was very nice and offered me creams or the nurse. She also gave us a new room. I did not notice anymore bites after we moved rooms. I recommend checking under the mattress of your room and keeping an eye. If one room has bed bugs, others probably do!

    A Bday Weekend With Family

    I spent 3 days and 2 nights. It all started out very blurry. First night in we were not happy about the accommodation given and did not get the service expected to resolved this matter. BUT THEN... On our second day, we met her... Marqueza Patterson, a young afropanamanian female at the main reception and she made it happen. Few hours later we had the desired and paid for room. She was a blessing!! The sea view rooms are amazing. The food, service in general and facilities are good. Hopefully all associates will take the time to resolve issues when arise, like Ms. Patterson did.

    Fabulous staff

    Great staff. Prepared for everything. My daughter dropped her swim goggles in the infinity pool drain. Renaldo and Arasmo removed the cover, dived in and swam under a barrier, under the pool to retrieve goggles. Wow! Young man leading Zumba water class on aug 11th - high energy and talented.

    Wonderful Resort

    This resort beat all of my expectations! The pictures do not do it justice. The staff was professional and very accommodating. The Pacifica restaurant was wonderful with fresh great quality food. Being vegetarians this restaurant was willing to bend over backward to ensure we were pleased. The desserts were amazing.

    Warm Welcoming Vacation!!

    From the warm welcoming of the staff to the luxury atmosphere of this hotel, you feel like royalty. The rooms were spacious with very comfortable beds. Everything was so fresh and clean. Must I add they offer 7 beautiful pools along with the beautiful view of the ocean. The amazing food came available in a buffet style, a restaurant that I didn't get a chance to visit and those who crave the burger, hot dogs or nachos....yum!! Don't let me forget the quaint ice cream shop for those who like to have a dessert . The quiet serene of this hotel makes for a relaxing vacation!
