We chose the all inclusive package. Excellent pool service was provided by Estefani Gonzalez. Marcos, the manager also came by frequently to ensure our needs were met. The pools are very relaxing. The food at Tierra y Fuego was awesome but make sure to make reservations with the concierge before going.

We were at Playa Bonita two evenings and a day while on a tour of Panama and it was a wonderful break. We upgraded to a higher floor with an ocean view and it was well worth it. Public areas are spacious and pleasant and the pools and lounge facilities great. Only complaint: no whirlpool or Jacuzzi on premises. Food...

Room was clean but shower pooled water so tended to smell damp and attract mosquitos. Pool areas looked great, nice landscaping. Not enough choices for restaurants as the a la carte were often closed. Starfish was the worst - noisy, chaotic. Service could be very good and then awful - no consistency. Also restaurant opening times were inconsistent. Drinks overpriced...

This luxury resort met and exceeded our expectations, from the room to the restaurants to the beautiful pool area. It was amazing! However what stood out the most was the Staff.

My son and I just visited the Westin Playa Bonita and were very impressed with the place, beautiful pools and great customer service. The reception clerks were nice and helpful, both check in and check out were done smoothly and fast but they did not have any maps of the hotel. The room was immaculate, elegantly decorated and very comfortable...
