A few months ago I posted a review of my stay as a guest at the Westin Playa Bonita, a beachfront luxury hotel that opened in 2012, just a few minutes from both the Panama Canal and Panama City. Now, it’s time to get visual with an exclusive LatinFlyer video that I made during my visit.

In addition to offering lots of amenities — including the expansive Sensory Spa by Clarins, three lovely swimming pools and gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean (look hard and you might even see some ships queuing up for the Panama Canal) — the Westin Playa Bonita is also surely popular with members of the Starwood Preferred Guest program, since it’s part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts family.

Beach lovers take note: The Westin Playa Bonita won the award for “Best Hotel Beach” in the recent LF Hotel Awards for Panama City. Check out all the winning Panama City hotels here.
