Buenaventura J.W. Marriott Resort and Spa

Luxurious and elegant resort on the Pacific, with stylish and contemporary rooms offering top-notch comfort.

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.
