My wife and I were there for my daughters wedding. The wedding party consisted of 22 people plus 3 that were at a neighboring resort. Some of the rooms were dated and in need of repairs. Our room seldom had hot or even warm water and the safe did not work. Our room only had 12 television channels, and none... More

My overall opinion about this place is positive. We went on our honeymoon, but the resort has lots of kids and families. So if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful trip, look elsewhere. We are from America, and 99% of this resort and staff are Hispanic speaking. Communication with the staff is not impossible, though. Their English is okay,... More

Took and all inclusive trip to this resort. Far from Panama city and took a long time to arrive to destination especially if you arrive during rush hour where you see the city inch by inch. Felt safe at the resort. Food was good . We were able to get a room with 3 beds so we did not have... More

This was a big step up from Cuba and the same price range. The pools are clean and well maintained and the facilities are good. The rooms are quite spacious, clean and they all have good views of the pools or the ocean. The food was great. There was always lots of fruit, vegetables, chicken and fish dishes -I travelled...

It is mostly Spanish - they try to accommodate English speaking guests but most visitors are from Colombia. Construction causes disruption, but hotel tries to keep from bothering guests. Beach clean, pools clean, rooms need some work. Food was pretty good for buffet. Other than a few people most staff was eager to help. It wasn't perfect but nothing was... More

The pools are quite nice, the beach is not crowded, but when I swam in the ocean my swimsuit was covered in green algae afterwards. Most people at the resort really seemed to enjoy it, there were a lot of Latino families, we saw very few other US/European people. The rooms were really nice, nearly all have balconies. The entertainment... More

Excellent pools that are well maintained, stage shows for kids and adults that are entertaining and funny. All you can eat buffet is included in the price as well as drinks and beverages. We stayed for one week and it was great, the staff is VERY friendly.

I traveled here with my elderly father & my sister and we had a wonderful time. My father wanted to see the Panama Canal which we saw and plenty more. The resort is a little far from Panama City but worth the drive on a very comfortable bus. The resort staff were very friendly helpful & accommodating to our needs... More

We were assigned a Master Suite at the Town Center section and were not disappointed. Some of the facilities need updating/refreshing but this is still nice for a three star all-inclusive product. The Town Center is a bit far from the beach and the restaurants though. It is not luxurious but it is quite adequate for a family. There are... More
