Despite the poor weather hurricane and wind, we still managed to have a great time at playa bonita. The staff were excellent, and they were happy to assist us with whatever we needed. I do not speak the best spanish but Digna Ilda and Richard were always very helpful when we were by the pool. We will definetly be back!

I recently held a program at this hotel and it was a wonderful experience. Joyce Mine was a great groups coordinator (ask for her)! In fact - the whole staff was great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to hold a meeting in Panama. Also, at the end of the trip I visited the spa, and...

Our reservations at Secrets Playa Bonita were moved to The Westin due to renovation of Secrets. The hotel is quite nice. The rooms were clean. The food was good. Entertainment was minimal; nightlife was nonexistent. Pools were seldom crowded. We had the premium package. We requested 3 times to have our mini-bar stocked (both in person and by phone). It...

I stayed here recently for a conference. Overall, I think this property is very close to being "excellent," but there are a few things that need to be fixed first. PROS: - Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. - Housekeeping does a great job in a difficult weather environment. - The pools are beautiful. - Awesome views of the Pacific,...

It is not the best beach of Panama, but the hotel is very nice. Nice pools. Very good food (compared to Royal Decameron). Very good restaurants. The waiter Richard Santana is very helpful and kind. He had my Old Parr ready and the lobby bar every night! We loved our stay there!

The hotel has a great infrastructure but I probably wouldn't go there on vacation. The place is huge but completely charmless. The restaurants are all one next to the other with no real distinguishing features in their respective decors, the lobby is a vats soulless expense, the pools are huge but the beach cannot really be used, and the rooms,...
