The staff at the reception area were extremely rude and unwilling to help, making everything difficult and complicated. The food was terrible... More

My overall rating of this hotel is POOR. The wifi and internet connection at the location is terrible. On multiple attempts to perform a speed test using the wifi in the main lobby of the resort I was able to hit TOP download speeds of 2 kb/s. My room was roughly 12 units down from the lobby on the second... More

My wife and I spent 7 days at this resort starting on Feb 2. We had a great time! We loved how it seemed secluded but was within a short drive into Panama city. We went with an all inclusive package that included 3 a la carte dinners. We actually ended up missing one of them because the meals and... More

On a trip to explore Bocas Del Toro we came here first to wind down from flight before jumping over to the Caribbean side. The service was stellar especially from the high energy man who delivered drinks on the beach. It was relaxing to watch the ships line up toward the Canal. Loved the sunrise from our balcony, too.The food... More

This resort is located just outside of Panama City on the pacific ocean. All rooms have an ocean view and the food served was truly remarkable. We had an all inclusive package with Sunwing and this is a new property for them. Everything from the spacious room to the outstanding service and friendly staff made our 10 day stay one... More

We, too, stayed at this hotel because our tour booked it for us! We were, generally speaking, satisfied. The room were were assigned on night one (first floor) was handy -- but the air conditioning did not work well. For nights two and three, we had a fifth floor room. Not only did the air conditioner work much better, but... More

A tour group booked my wife and me here on an all inclusive package. Mostly everything was very nice, and the staff were super helpful and friendly.
