Convenient to City

Pros -Pool and beach area are great. The pool side bars are great and well located. -Location: quick 10 minute taxi to town -Scenery: Quite, beautiful view, watch the ships in line for the canal passage. -Cafe: great service and espresso -Rooms: Beds are very comfortable with tons of pillow options. -Clean facilities CONS -FOOOD is horrible, Eat a big breakfast because lunch and dinner options are not as pictured on any menu. . -Advertised a free shuttle to town, we had to pay for a cab or uber everyday -Staff were not friendly or helpful -Room service will never pick up phone, had to go down to the front desk each time. I wouldn't stay at this resort again as a all inclusive since i went to town for lunch and dinner daily.

Good for the price, room for improvement

The Good: Beds were comfy, lots of pillows, good drinks, best food we've had so far at an all inclusive (arroz con pollo y tamales con pollo were the best), AC worked great, staff was great, having free WiFi access was great. The Bad: Beach is rocky, please remove the rocks when the tide is low. Tide is very low in the mornings (can't swim) and comes back up in the afternoon. The $200 resort credit..could be applied to things like Spa, so $60 of it would go towards your couples massage which costs $1200 0_0. Considering our trip cost $1400 we wouldn't be paying $1200 for a 50 minute couples massage. Not sure how they can sell these things with a straight face. But at least they weren't too pushy, which was nice for a change. Don't pay for the shuttle service using resort or airport, set up uber app and use that instead, much more cost effective. We also left the resort to see the canal and to go to Casco Viejo. They do have a shuttle that runs to the city but it goes once a day and doesn't go back until 4 hours later, not great for those of us who aren't obsessed with shopping on vacation. Our flight back was at 7pm (we purchased 3night/4 day package), so we intended to stay until leaving for airport at 4 pm and didn't anticipate extra fees. Upon asking we were told that checkout is at noon (stated on the resort details) but that we would have to pay extra $60 to check out at 3pm, they let us stay extra hour 'free' so till 4pm, (NOT stated on the resort details). I think it is ridiculous for an all inclusive resort to charge extra for checking out later especially if they have the availability. If purchasing a package for a PM flight then everything shouldbe covered until you leave for said flight (using facilities, food, late checkout). Contacted travel agent who was able to get us free food until we left but we still had to check out at noon. Well, due to somewhat medical circumstances i need to have a private bathroom so we had to pay $60.

Wonderful Experience

We decided to spend our Thanksgiving holiday at this resort. We were pleased with the location, the service, and the experience over all. The restaurants had great food but after 4 days it seemed like it was the same over all. They did a Thanksgiving dinner which was very nice. We had a fabulous experience since we got to see sea turtles being born and then helped released them to the ocean at night. It was quite a treat! The restaurants and bars are very simple. The French restaurant was totally nice but that’s about the only one that’s was totally worth it. We loved the quiet location. There are no activities for entertainment at night. They only had a pianist one day when we were there for a week. Overall the stay I was good.

Worst stay ever

This trip was to celebrate my best friends Birthday. It was a group of eight ladies. This nightmare started the very first evening in the middle of the night when the air conditioning a lights went off. This happened durning the whole duration of our trips. When the air and lights went off so did the hot water. We went hours without air, hot water or electrically. The worst part is that the hotel did not turn off the elevator so I ended up getting stuck in the elevator for almost 30 minutes, mind you there was no air in the elevator. When I spoke with the front desk attendant she told me that she believe the problem was fixed and that we should be able to enjoy the rest of our vacation. This is Saturday afternoon not hour later the lights goes off again as we are sitting by the bar. As far as the room service I would call for room service during normal working hours and no one would answer the phone. I had to physically go to the front desk to ask for extra towels. I’ve travel a lot and this was my first time using cheap Caribbean and Mr Chuck the representative that help me book this hotel assured it was one of the best hotels. However, the only good thing at hotel was the polite servers. The infinity pool area was under construction which we was not notified about, the regular pool area was infested with bees from the drinks that was not cleaned up from the previous guest in the area. There was no attendant at the hotel accomdating water sports, because we was try canoeing. THIS HOTEL SUCKS, we needed up going to neighboring hotels for dinner, drinks and air. Which is sad because it should have been accommodating at my hotel.

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.
