Azuero Peninsula and Pacific coast: Buenaventura J.W. Marriott Resort and Spa

Buenaventura J.W. Marriott Resort and Spa

The huge, low-rise luxury Buenaventura J.W. Marriott Resort and Spa by the sea is an hour or two's drive from Panama City. Almost more like a beautifully manicured town than a hotel (there’s even an original colonial chapel), it’s an extremely elegant complex blending the latest in interior design with classic architectural influences.

Extensive sculptured gardens and atmospheric lighting endow it with a romantic ambience suitable for couples, while its smart guest rooms – bright and unashamedly luxurious with discreet, contemporary furnishings and indulgently plush bathrooms – appeal to holidaymakers and business people alike. Garden view rooms have a private walled patio. The hotel’s three restaurants serve excellent, innovate gourmet cuisine.

There are a number of pools, the most striking of which stretches out infinity-style towards the Pacific just beyond. There’s also full beach service, and many optional activities from horse riding to bird watching.

What our experts say

I think the bed in my room at the JW Marriott Buenaventura must be the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. By night the ambient lighting throughout the grounds and public areas created an enchanting and romantic atmosphere.
