My husband and I held our destination wedding at the Intercontinental in July 2013. Our family and friends came from several countries to join us and all of us had a wonderful stay. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. We worked with an event planner, Milena, and she did an excellent job coordinating everything. The catering...

The hotel is a little remote from Panama City and, therefore, taxis rides downtown are costly. But the location is great. Nice pools, good bar service, and an outstanding breakfast buffet. Other meals (mainly buffets) were certainly adequate. The hotel staff were very helpful, as they were on an earlier visit. We visited with another couple who were seeing Panama...

I got the reservations with a coupon from local email offers service. I got a great deal for a two-night, two-person stay. The room was clean and nice. I did notice that the beds were queen-sized mattresses over full-sized box springs, which made the bed wobble a bit. The bathroom had most standard amenities. They included shower gel and conditioner,...

We just booked two rooms (233 and 234) with a fantastic ocean view to the pools and the beach. There are actually several of them... Playa Bonita means Beautiful Beach in Spanish, and this is the beach at high tide... the other beach (during low tide) is much less overwhelming. Admittedly, the water is far from crystal-clear and few people...

Took a four-day holiday here after business in Panama City. The resort is wonderful; rooms are spacious and very clean. Bathroom was adequate but not huge and the shower head could use some updating for a hotel of this class. The grounds are beautiful with several pools, including one just for adults (a nice touch).
