This property is beautifully designed and is very nice both inside and out with the great beach views and all the very nice pools. The staff from the restaurants to front desk clerks to housekeeping were all very helpful and accommodating. As far as food, the buffet was very good with a lot of selections and you can get your...

We had a group of 8 people to have the Asian dinner. The waitress Yessenia was very proactive to help us recommending some plates to share. Altough it is a fancy restaurant, everybody was friendly and atmosphere was made easy by all of them. The chef JOSE GOMEZ came to our table and did a great job! A nice guy... More

beautiful pools with plenty of palms and flowers. excellent service in restaurants; a big hurrah for Ismael de Selas who took good care of me and my colleagues all three days at breakfast. Friendly drivers who took us to the Panamá Channel the Albrook Mall and the Old City and gave us a lot of historical references

This was a nice hotel but the service was very slow. We sometimes didnt get coffee for breakfast We had to show proof of our all inclusive because they wanted to give us breakfast only. When we check in the wanted to charge us more for an ocean view and they were in their slow season. We had a reservation... More

This is a beautiful property with 7 restaurants and many pools for swimming during the day.The staff is cordial and very friendly but most only speak Spanish but this generally isn't an issue.We did a side tour of dowtown Panama City which was less than enjoyable because of the heat and lack of things to see. Drinks are reasonably priced... More

Nice large hotel on the beach, large rooms, decent food. The beach has a large tidal changes and turns rocky at low tide. Makes for nice hikes looking at tidal pools. I attended a small conference at the hotel and it comes across as a convention hotel. Getting away from the hotel is challenging. Due to it's location, taxis are... More

Everyone friendly and helpful. Especially Johsteen at pool 3 and Marcos at the swim up bar. Rooms with balcony had beautiful view, large and clean. Buffet was very plentiful with many choices and at breakfast a Bloody Mary bar with champagne. Overall, I would recommend.

Our group (about 60 people) was on the all-inclusive plan. Our experience was excellent. The service was top-notch and the food ranged from very good to excellent. Our group coordinator (Joyce) was very professional and took care of (what must have seemed like) millions of details. We had some logistical problems, not caused by the hotel, and she was instrumental... More

I had a bunch of general questions to ask at the reception desk. The crew there was absolutely professional and customer oriented. The answers I got were helpful and I felt most welcome. Thank you, Mr. Armando. And thanks to the whole Crew!

We were on a reward to trip for a quick visit to Panama. We were lucky enough to meet Marcos Saturno at the swim up bar early in our trip - he not only took care of any of our beverage needs, but was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. He gave us great information about the city, was very interesting... More
