Great Time at Dreams Delight Playa Bonita Panama

We had wonderful time at the Dreams Delight. The staff was excellent and wanted to make sure that the stay was memorable. We ate at the Italian, French and buffet restaurants and all were very good. The wait staff were friendly and catered to our needs. We lounged by the pool and also on the beach as the weather was outstanding. It was in the high 80s and low 90s with no humidity which may be because we were there in January. It was certainly a very relaxing and enjoyable time.

Nice but more would have been better

I was there for 4 nights 5 days during 11/28-12/4. The resort is nice, clean and has a pleasant ambiance. It was understaffed so laundry service was infrequent. The food at each restaurant was okay but the buffet food is much better. It rained every day at different times . The tide went away one day and there was litterally no ocean to swim in. Theres very little beach to lounge at but plenty of pool seating. No a lot of activies so you will want to get off the resort and go somewhere. There is a free 4hour shuttle that will take you to Albertsons mall and bring you back.

Nightmare Playa Bonita

Stay away from this place. First of all the positives, staff was friendly. That’s about the only positive thing. Our check in was at 10pm we were escorted to our rooms. The lady that checked in to,d us there’s no place to eat since it was late and they would send food over to our room, it was 12pm by the time we got food which was not very edible anyway. Rooms: Clean but the walls were cracked in multiple places, loud ac, which seems to not function well as soon as it’s 3pm at night, hot water was barely warm for showers, lot of mosquitoes in the room since the doors don’t close all the way and there is a big gap in the doors. Pool: multiple tiles missing all over the pool, rough on feet, mildew or moss like stuff on the walls, looks like a very old beat up pool, no hot spa. Food. Would be ok if you were there for one or two days. But we were there for 8 days, and it’s same old stuff every day. Italian and French are open in alternative days. They do not switch anything around same stuff. Can’t believe there was no pizza or ice cream for kids. Not much of fruits either. We ended up grabbing Uber to head to the city to have dinner most of the nights. Beach. Full of seashells never seen so many ona beach before, must wear something can’t walk bare foot. Ships lined up for Panama Canal is all you will see. Water very murky and dirty looking. Not much of entertainment, just get to sit around the bar all day. Water sports the only thing you can do is kayak but the guide never shows up on time, We were talking to other guests and they had similar experience with this resort. We have been to dreams costarica and dreams puntacana before and they were not like this. I was expecting same level of service. Never will I book with dreams again. This has been a nightmare not a dream.

General review

General experience is all right. Room is very clean and comfortable. Resort int / ext is nice and clean. Friendly customer service. Find a little inconvenient that some staff don't speak English. Also it was very troublesome when our air condition didn't work and had to switch room last night of stay. Excellent food in the buffet, not so good in the restaurant. Beach is very muddy. Totally different than the picture. I was also told that if I pay extra on the site, there will be more water sports options such as jet ski. However, that was not the case when I was there. There was no other water sports options except the one included in the package. Which is only kayaking. Very disappointed at that and the beach. The beach looks nothing like a Caribbean sea should look like. It looks more like some city beach in a third world country.

What's to Love

All-inclusive fun for the entire family. They are going to love you this epic vacation.

The golden Pacific Panama Beach, outdoor Jacuzzi, sleek infinity pool and exotic, jungle walkways.

The stress-busting yoga classes, kayaking and more.

No matter what land or water activity you choose, there's always the fitness center (your Switzerland).

Hitting "reset" with all sorts of goodies like hydrotherapy combined with indigenous treatments.

Treatments like "State of Bliss" and the "C and Sea" facial (wrinkles-be-gone). You melting yet?

The perfect, temperate weather - never above 90 degrees. You in?

 

What We'd Change

The commute from the airport to the resort seems long, just because you're ready to get there already! But, the 45 minutes or so will fly by and when you arrive at the resort, expect a drink handed to you first thing.
 

Why You Should Go

You're minutes away from historic Panama Canal. (Visit the Wiki for a quick history update).

The Cathedral of Panama City is a must-see - it's burgeoning with old-world architecture and charm.

You can take scuba diving lessons, snorkel, rent wave runners and even water ski. Big, splashy fun.

You're just a hop away from the wonders of the Punta Bruja Nature Reserve.

There are wedding/honeymoon/anniversary packages that include wine/fresh fruit upon arrival, live music and more.

Golf is big in Panama and you'll find many courses nearby. Channel your inner Tiger.

Free shuttle into Panama City from the resort.

Panama's official currency is the US dollar, and you'll be vacationing on EST.

Imagine this scenario: you, nearly asleep, are listening to waves gently lap up on the beach (the only noise in the tranquil quiet), then you open your eyes to see turquoise waves, a brilliant azure sky and a lush mountainous landscape in the distance.
