JW Marriott

Located just over an hour from Panama City is the luxurious JW Marriott Panama, one of the finest beach resorts in the country. The JW Marriott, located inside the upscale Buenaventura property, occupies hundreds of acres of lush Pacific coastline. Not only is it one of the most luxurious resorts in Panama, it is the best resort in the Rio Hato/Playa Blanca region as far as quality and, more distinctively, 5-star service. Whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic retreat, a family looking to enjoy the beach, or a group of friends on a golf or spa retreat, JW Marriott has a room for you.

There are 109 guest rooms and 9 suites ranging from 540 sq. ft. in the Guest Rooms to 1,080 sq. ft. in the One-bedroom Suites, offering a room for every budget. All the rooms are decorated with a contemporary design and feature 5-star amenities. Every room comes with floor to ceiling windows that lead out to a balcony or terrace overlooking the property as well as A/C, individual climate control, international cable TV, minibar, coffee maker, safe, plush bathrobes, and spa-like marble bathroom with oversized tub. The upgraded, spacious Suites offer additional amenities such as a dining area and a Whirlpool in the JW Suite. Additional services include 24-hour room service, valet parking, concierge desk, and customized guest service.

The list of amenities around the JW Marriott Panama is truly endless. Take a swim in their large pool with swim-up bar or one of five separate pools at the El Faro Beach Club, complete with children’s pool and whirlpools. Hoping to add some salt-water to your swim or surf some waves? Enjoy access to three different beaches – Playa Blanca, Playa Rio Hato, and Playa Santa Clara. For a wellness experience, pamper yourself in the full-service Corotu Spa or sweat it out in the state-of-the-art fitness center open 24-hours. Make sure to set up a tee-time or lessons on the 18-hole, 72-par golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus and comes complete with pro shop, putting green, driving range, and swing instruction. Enjoy one-on-one adult-time and drop the kids off at the JW Panama Kids Club with half-day and full-day childcare services available. For older “kids”, the Teen Lounge offers a pool table, air hockey, and video game consoles. Make sure to explore the nearby Valle de Anton with a guided hike, canopy zip-line, or bird watching. To satisfy your taste pallet, enjoy dining at the six restaurants and bars, including options such as steak, sushi, and seafood.
