This place is in a great location, close to Panama City with a cool low key beach and pool enviroment. There's several different options for decent food and the staff do make a solid effort to help. Since the ownership seems to have changed hands recently it seems to be improving. Could have given it a great review but the... More

We have stayed at this resort once before, and we had a good time. The food was ok, and the service was good. Upon returning we have been terribly disappointed. The reasons for this disappointment are as follows: - upon checking in they tried to give us rooms that did not meet our needs. It appeared that they didn't know... More

Now Im not sure if all of the people who have left terribly negative reviews about this resort are just super super picky or if they simply had a totally different experience than us. We have had a fantastic time, room was beautiful, food is incredible, staff is friendly and helpful, and yes not all of them can speak English... More

1.Most expensive vacation. Roughly $2000 per person for a 7 day stay (including flight and transportation). Even though it is all inclusive, it is still too much. There are several possible reasons for such high cost. 1st, since this is an all inclusive resort, why install expensive kitchen appliances? Nobody cooks food if there is free food available in the... More

Came here for a long weekend with my family and so far I have enjoyed it. They have great food and while the service needs a little of improvement. However everything is great. We took one of the penthouses/suites and the room was perfect. It had a really pretty view and would recommend it to anyone! :)

I'll start by saying, I'm not picky. That being said, I won't even waste my time on a detailed review. This place is garbage. The food is garbage (that's truly being generous), and that's when you can get it because there was almost always nothing available. Staff are unhelpful, and no one speaks English...the list goes on...almost everyone that arrived... More

We hosted 204 people for our annual conference at this hotel, most of them staying here with the all-inclusive package. The hotel management, led by general manager Mauro Monte, were extremely helpful in making our event a whole success. Everyone, from the ballroom personnel to the chef did their best to make our people feel welcome. The hotel staff were... More

Came here as part of a tour. Will not stay at another Wyndham Grand property, if this is any example. Upon arrival, we found that most of our group did not have electricity (including AC). We also didn't have water in our room. Electricity eventually was restored to most units, but we never got water. Couldn't take a shower, couldn't... More
