To be clear, my review is of the Beruit Restaurant. I own a house a few miles down the road in Santa Clara, and came to Playa Blanca for dinner only. We were greeted immediately upon entering and were seated in the main dining room. The greeter took our drink order and went behind the bar. After a few minutes,... More

I had a suit for two nights, but after the first night I went to the costumer service and let them know that our mattress, shows all the springs and to sleep over there was almost impossible. I'm still waiting for a solution. Once you are there, suck it is what you paid for. If this is a good value,... More

As an all-inclusive it is a good value. Basically, you get what you pay for. Nothing fancy. The food was pretty good (not great). I would skip the sushi restaurant, though. The pool is clean. The drinks were good. The beach was okay. What took this from three stars to four, are the staff. The staff overall was very friendly... More

I visited this hotel several times. The first times I really liked it. But now I feel it is not that good. The food is almost the same every day ( cheesecake is awesome ) . There aren't that much seats in the first pool so if you want a seat get up early. And if you stay in the... More

We were there for 3 days, the services and food is terrible. the oceanview rooms are nice but you cant sleep because the noise of the music. We called 2..3...4 times for services and never got the services.. You pay additional charge for wife and not signal anywhere.. Overall ...I dont recommend this place

For a resort it falls way behind. Only good thing was the night entertainment . The rooms are old and outdated and Mosquitos everywhere!! I know it's Panama but if I'm staying at a hotel I don't expect to be mosquito bait during my stay. The staff are all really nice but rooms are dirty just below any star standard... More

Good for kids and families. Enjoyed watching the kids and families doing water aerobics with a DJ!! Service was mediocre and rooms need a little attention (dirty)!! Food was a bit bland with a smorgasbord style "all skate"!! Great for one night only in my opinion.

From the moment we arrived and had to stand in a long check in line with only two desk people working it was a bad visit. Once getting to the room it was old and dirty. The balcony was covered with bird droppings, the shower did not work well and was falling out of wall. Did not have any hand... More

We spent one night at this resort and enjoyed it. The beach access was very good and there was a lifeguard. The pools were also great and there was a swim up bar that we enjoyed. Our only dining choices were the Italian restaurant and the buffet. The Caribbean restaurant was not operating. We had breakfast at the buffet and... More
