Overall good but lacking in a few areas

Excellent:Accommodations- clean prompt room service/Staff- very courteous though some difficulty with language (English) Food- outstanding Beverages- excellent including name brand liquor/ beer as requested/Wifi- best service I ever experienced at a resort/weather- very consistent of hot sunny weatherDisappointing: Beach -not usable, very rough/ grainy sand/shells. Though the high/ low tide is interesting daily, when low tide very unappealing beach view. Entertainment: lack of evening entertainment and poolside music/activity makes for uneventful evenings. Rooms: can hear next door and hallway noise

Nice property

All inclusive Pkg had good food and drinks! Just stay clear of the burgers. Excellent pools, beach is ok to walk, but too shallow here for water sports. Most activities are around the pool experience. Rooms clean, comfortable.

Wow. Relaxing adult hotel

As a lifetime platinum Starwood member. I've been to a lot of hotels for both business and pleasure. This one was set up as both. They had a busy convention center that handled several events while we were there but never did we feel that our presence was a hinderance. I was u graded to a great rejuvenate suite with a spacious bedroom and sitting area. Each place had a large balcony that looked over the ocean. The hotel has 5 pools with a designated adults only area and ample places for families. There is also a private adult pool for SPG members that want some more privacy. The food was for the most part very good and a different theme for each Buffett at night meant a wide variety to choose from. They excelled at the Mexican with flavorful stews meats and sides, however failed miserably with the Asian. (It was overtly salty without any spice). I must say that once I noted my dissatisfaction they were quick to remove the cost and provide me with a complimentary dinner for two at the next night at the other Asian restaurant. That would be my only real complaint about the food other than not all of the restaurants being open each night. The hotel offers two meal plans one with and one without alcohol. We went ala cart and only spent about 700 in meals for two of us over 7 days. The hotel is about a 15-20 min drive or cab to anywhere. As they say it's $25 anywhere over the bridge. Cabs are easy to get but be wary many don't want to turn on the AC. Negotiate the price before you start. The beach is a little hard on the feet as it is mainly composed of shells. But the tide goes really far out. Almost 1/2 kilometer for a few hours and the beach itself is 2 km in length. Great for long walks and shell hunting. Look forward to a return visit.

Playa Bonita

This hotel is beautiful with amazing facilities, service, food and ambience. It's just a short drive from Panama City which makes it a perfect destination to enjoy the beach and nightlife of the city with little effort. The beach is small and experiences low and high tide but at high tide it's very nice. During low tide the water is a fair walk away but the pools are always inviting. I highly recommend this resort as a first class resort.

First-Rate Vacation Hotel

This hotel was a pleasure. The pools, the food, the rooms--it is simply a great ambiance. Casual and fun. I say this in spite of the fact that the name of the hotel is a lie: there is no beautiful beach. There's little sand--all rocks and shells, and the water is dirty. Nice gym and spa; live music in the bar, and friendly helpful staff.It's hard not to simply kick back and enjoy!
