Terrific property

I'm not normally a fan of all inclusive properties, but I was really impressed with this place. The food was excellent at all of the restaurants i tried and the staff was willing to bend over backwards to accommodate. Marcos Saturno seemed to appear everytime we had a special request for our group. Thank you

Perfect relaxation at a beautiful resort

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.

A Delightful Surprise at the Beach!

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 buffets (this was a tour) were good and plentiful with table service for beverages, etc. And our room was lovely.We were on an all-inclusive plan with lots available -- including great drinks!

Patchy service spoiled a nice hotel

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 - place really catered for all inclusive guests. Beach was definitely not "bonita". Location was $25 taxi ride to Panama City so held captive - even tour operators didn't want to pick up from their unless you used the hotel tour operator who was very expensive.
