A great honeymoon experience!

Dreams Playa Bonita was a fantastic honeymoon choice! We went during their "rainy" season, which was only about 2 hours of rain a day - perfect for an afternoon nap. The beaches were clean and the pools seemed to be as well, although we didn't end up spending any time in those. For the food, they had a lot of dining options and the meals were always delicious. I have food sensitivities which did make it a little difficult to find the right food each time, but with a salad bar and multiple menu options at each restaurant, I was typically able to find something that worked for me. If you decide to visit, you definitely need to check out the jungle tour! Alexander was our tour guide, he's been there for 15 years and shares interesting knowledge about the jungles of Panama. When he found out my husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon (and their anniversary for the couple that was with us on the tour), he took our picture and surprised us with decorations and a framed photo of the picture in our room. He truly made our stay!! On the jungle tour itself, we were able to see sloths, monkeys and other animals, and the best part is we only had to walk down the driveway of the hotel to get there since it's right next to the jungle. The resort works with Panamazing tour group and they were fantastic as well. I would definitely suggest setting up a shuttle from the airport to the resort and back - it was well worth the expense! Apparently taxis don't have specific rates in Panama so they may take advantage of tourists. We also used Panamazing to visit the Panama canal and the Old City - a MUST see if you love history, architecture, and beautiful colors. The only area the resort could've improved was the cleanliness of the bedding. Although they definitely seemed like they were washed, our comforter did have some stains on it. If you visit, invest in 3oz bottles of sunscreen and bug spray (non-aerosol). The gift shop was a little bit pricey and the bottles were bigger so we couldn't take them home with us. We would love to go back and visit again in the future. It was a beautiful resort with friendly staff and great amenities!

Dreams playa bonita

Very nice property, excellent service, Jose, our concierge was very helpful. He helped book our excursions which were great & fairly priced. Food was good, French restaurant was by far out favorite & I loved having a latte in the Coco Cafe. Oceans food was good but service was a little confused ,& everyone in our party complained that their food was just warm, not hot.Room was nice with great view. Loved being able to see the ships waiting to go thru the Canal.

Exactly what to expect with al inclusive resort

Dreams was exactly what I expect with an all inclusive resort. Buffet was typical resort buffet. Night dining was great although we never made it to the seafood restaurant. The pool was great, the pool bar had great bartenders. Resort was EMPTY. There were multiple days we were the only people in the pool which was great some days but others it would have been nice to mingle with others. The “night club” was SKETCHY. There was never anyone working the bar and there was never anyone in there. I mean NO ONE. The music was insanely loud, especially for being the only people in there. The bar was dirty and could use some upgrading, including alcohol selections. Housekeeping did a great job, the views were amazing and the staff was very helpful at al times.

Worst resort ever

Oh my where do I start. The food was horrible, service horrible, rooms were not clean, no night life? Bar closes early , just horrible and expensive. I was so disappointed. Please don’t make the same mistake as we did. I feel like I was cheated.

What's to Love

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

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.

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.
