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

Please do not ignore the poor reviews... this is NOT the place you want to go if you want to have a relaxing worry free vacation. We ended up switching to the Riu Playa Blanca next door which is MUCH better. I am not one to give poor reviews like this but this was truly an awful experience. I will... More

First, I will start by saying that the gardens and play area for children are nice and well kept. The pools are okay but could use some extra cleaning and attention. Beach area is so-so, as is the norm for this side of Panama. Now to the rooms - where do I start? This may have been the filthiest room... More

We're staying at a private condo "www.lolabeachpanama" which is wonderful. We bought day passes for the all inclusive resort which was very reasonable with a variety of restaurants, pools and entertainment. The beach here is amazing and the staff are all friendly. Our building is very quiet and the entire grounds are very secure.

I just stayed there january 3, 2015. The bathroom did not give a good impression, looks dirty, the shower floor had some mud on it. The dishes for the snacks, in the clean rack, had some ketchup at the back of them. While sitting by the pool saw that someone just throw on it, went to look for the person... More

this resort has a beautiful setting... But that's as good as it gets. It had the most uncomfortable beds ever, food was subpar and not very clean. We paid $99 per person for all inclusive. The food was mostly fried. The snack bar had a lot of foods that were just plain horrible and when trying to make a reservation... More

I dont usually rate hotels, I take them as I find them and usually get what I pay for...we stayed here for one night, and this place is way over priced for what you get. We reserved a king delux room on line,but we're told when we got there that the hotel was over sold and gave us a queen... More

Good-food very tasty, pools especially large lake pool fun, drinks great. Bad- Staff very unhappy, Very poor english skills on all staff, overall the worst staff i have ever come across. No activity signs in english so we never new activities of day. Check-in very unorganized. Far from airport. Terrible Wifi.

We booked a luxury suite at this resort for a whole week. Unfortunately, they had no room for us after an exhausting drive with our 1.5 year old baby to Playa Blanca Resort. The room was simply given away to somebody else. We arrived at 3.30 pm. Issue: The booking was made the previous day, but the payment was rejected... More
