Fodor's Review

Families, couples, and business travelers looking for the amenities of a full-service resort, the feel of a destination beach-retreat, and proximity to Panama City's best attractions will find that the Westin elegantly unites all these features in one towering complex. As you enter the property, note the greenhouses on your left; they're the source of nearly all the vegetables in any one of the Westin's six excellent restaurants. The four pools, one of which wends its way (in canal-like fashion) around a massive outdoor dining pavilion, are not just for swimming. They're for lounging, in partially submerged loungers; enjoying a cocktail, at the swim-up bar; and playing, at the water-volleyball net. Kids get their own pool, which fronts the Westin Kids Club, a supervised activity center for children 4–12. And parents get the voluminous Aquabell Sensory spa, by Clarins. Rooms are spacious and sleek. Get one with an ocean view and watch ships from around the world queue up to enter the Panama canal right from your balcony.
