Our family of 6 really enjoyed our time at Playa Bonita during spring break. We must admit, we had a tough beginning; 4am flight, got to resort starving, didn't read any check in instructions, had the slowest server at lunch possible. After a mojito poolside, we were ready to vacation! The condo at the Playa Bonita was the perfect size, fit us very comfortably, and great location. We felt like we were the only people there! We opted to purchase the week membership at the Pearl so that we could use the less crowded pool and it was well worth the reasonable price tag. This club only has bar/restaurant open Friday-Sunday so the other days you will need to bring something down with you or just hop over to the Westin pool for a quick bite, the quesadillas and margaritas were a big hit. The gym at the condo is fine, the gym at the Pearl is super nice so either way you have choices. We had a few meals at the Westin, all were great, especially the breakfast buffet. Only thing negative I will say that restaurants do not store their wine in any temp controlled storage. At the end of the night we played pool and ping pong in the game room at the condo, which we had all to ourselves every night which the boys loved. Before our trip I tried to make tour arrangements and had a difficult time, couldn't believe I was flying to a foreign country with no plans. There is a tourism desk literally right next to the check in counter at the Westin that can plan everything you want to do with no problems at all. They were very helpful and explained all the options quite well. We had spotty luck with the concierge for dinner recommendations but superb assistance from the bellmen for help with transportation every single time we wanted to go somewhere. Overall we had an amazing time and the boys made memories to last a lifetime. Panama City is such a beautiful combination of old architecture mixed with modern. The Panama Canal museum in Casco Viejo is a must do either before or after the canal ride itself, which is just mind blowing. And to spend the day fishing on a lake in the canal with the sounds of monkeys in the background, doesn't get much better! Thank you for such a great stay!!
Best & most caring owners of a vacation rental you'll find.
Esteban & Carmen went out of their way to assure me (as a solo female traveler) if I needed assistance of any kind to just contact them. They helped me with local transportation to places that were difficult to arrange. Went out of their way to obtain info to local things to do that I had trouble finding.
Their nephew Miguel was great taking me to places I wanted to go which would of been a little difficult to get return taxis, it made travels so much easier, non stressful and less time consuming.
Best possible view in the world of large ships going past. Awesome sunsets.
Nice pools and one was heated just the way I like it.
A/C worked great. Comfortable furnishing and bed. Kitchen well equipped. Nice shower. Very quiet. Building and parking area well kept, outdoor pool chairs seem new.
Location on causeway is exceptional with easy walking and safe evening outings. Views of ships waiting entrance to canal on one side and Panama city on the other.
Especially enjoyed Mi Ranchito restaurant (8 minute walk) for seafood, atmosphere with friendly and fast service. Recommend a bus pass if staying more than a few days.
I will return to Panama and stay in this condo in the future.
Thanks Esteban, Carmen, Miguel & Carlos for your dedication, care, concern, doing everything possible to make sure I had a safe & fulfilling time right from the start of booking all the way thru to my return home.
It was my pleasure to meet you all and stay in your condo.
See you in the future.
