We came to Panama to shoot a short business documentary and to enjoy family time. We were very impressed at how the concierge staff, ran by Ericka and Francisco were so attentive. Though we didn't know any videographers, they went out of their way to find local recommendations and make the plans for us to shoot the film. We had... More

We stayed here for a week and loved it! The customer service was amazing, so much so that we asked to speak to a manager to tell him! Great food and a great outdoor buffet right on the water. Yes there are birds, but it's an outdoor buffet. We weren't remotely concerned. We were served drinks at the pool by... More

Our family had the opportunity to stay at this resort with the expectation that it would be 3 nights and 4 days of rest and relaxation as you would expect from an Intercontinental property. In all fairness, the property is fantastic and it has everything that you would want with a spa, great pools, three restaurants and a beach front... More

Only choice for the buffet was panamanian food. Background music was panamanian. Pool was ok. Service and confort was ok. Nothing to do at night. Just drink at the bar. Not very good taste after all. Needs to improve the choice of food to offer

I stayed at this property for a conference in May. Although the location was a bit far form the city (25 minutes by car), the hotel had a private beach access. The infiniti pool was right in front of the beach allowing guests to relax by the pool and enjoy the breathtaking ocean view. The gym was quite nice with... More
