I honestly don't believe management takes these reviews seriously. Against bad reviews i regret with all my heart staying here. This was a family trip of over 40 guests. As we checked in most of us had to wait until 3pm for our room "key". Yes literally a key....not even the cheapest motels use keys anymore. And for a 2nd... More

This is an average hotel in my opinion. Food is decent, but like any other gets dull the last couple days. Our room was great but our friends all had issues (broken a/c, wrong beds, etc). I personally didn't mind all the walking but I could see some people really not liking it. The disco was a 20 minute walk.... More

My boyfriend and I went for a wedding. Beach is amazing! Hotel grounds are huge and have a lot of steps! There are a lot of buffets around though so finding one near wasn't too hard. Bars and staff were friendly. Rooms where a good size. Booking for the restaurants was fine if you did it a few days before,... More

We just got back from Royal Decameron Panama this morning. We loved our stay at the resort and would recommend it to everybody. It is beautiful, weather (considering it's "winter" there) as well - if you take into consideration 2 tropical storms and humidity :-) What is the best about the resort, in my opinion, is the people. Great shows,... More

None of the other all-inclusives allow you to use the pool at night, from what my friend tells me. The Royal Decameron at least lets you chill at one of their pools past 10pm. VERY cool. ENTERTAINMENT The entertainment was so-so. Not interactive. I'm not downing the dancers, they were excellent, professional, super energetic. The show simply didn't have hardly... More

While the property itself is lovely in terms of a good location, mature trees for some shade, etc., the place is really showing its age. At one time, it was the only "all-inclusive" in the area but now there are others, all of which are much newer. They charge extra for a "lock" for the safe, for use of the... More

This holiday was enjoyable for the entire family. There are a few tips that I would like to give readers. We had an upgrade so our room had an ocean view. The distances from your room to the restaurants are 500 meters to 800 meters depending on which unit your are staying in. For the alcohol you can get foreign... More

Resort was O.K. Always felt greetings had to be initiated. VERY unilingual Spanish. Night shows extremely repetitive in Spanish, dance only. Also could not understand why reservations for buffets a night when you clearly didn't need 1? Anything beef on the menu was like chewing on shoe leather. Went to Costa Rica last year same type of beach and surroundings... More

Would never go back to Panama . The people are rude and can hardly speak English. I've been to Mexico, Cuba & Dominican Republic where the people were very friendly and spoke English. I couldn't understand why we needed reservations for supper in the buffet. The beach was alright but not the greatest. The sand had black ashes from the... More

The property is 2 hours from Panama City located on a beautiful beach. The hotel is owned by a Colombian company and really caters to the Colombian people and Panamanians. United States travelers are pretty much on their own. The staff is not helpful at all and you must speak Spanish to communicate in any way. The drinks are OK,... More
