I stayed two nights from February 17, 2015. The couch in my room was filthy with stains, the area rug was also stained and dirty. The lamp by the bed was cracked, there was no table outside on the balcony, the full-length mirror is in a bad spot (too close to the bed), the door to the toilet is only... More

I´m 55 years old, honestly, I´ve never visited a great hotel like Playa Blanca, I was looking around All inclusive hotels at Panama and everybody recommended me this. Great attention and incredible live shows!

15 minutes from Rio Hato airport, this hotel and resort is a surprise. The staff is very friendly, the knowledge of English language live to be desire.

The beach is nice but there were stingrays at low tide and we couldn't swim in the mornings. Also a few light jellyfish stings could be experienced. If you don't like sea creatures, stick to the pools. Being by the theatre was very noisy and they don't shut down till well after midnight. The food and service was good and... More

The service here is horrible. The rooms are not clean. The food was average at best. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to stay somewhere else. If you do decide to go, check your credit card statement when you return... someone tried to charge an extra $250 after we left. Never again!

A lovely get-away 7 day stay was very enjoyable. Only 15 minutes from the new Rio Hato airport. Hotel facilities were adequate and staff was friendly and helpful although language was a bit of a problem. Spanish is the language of choice and very few employees understand English. The resort is lovely with grounds well maintained. It appears that the... More
