We arrived on Saturday afternoon and hit a good time without a line and even though we were early, they let us go ahead and check in.
I had booked directly thru royal American and they matched the rate I found on Bookit. I had called the hotel because I was concerned about the room descriptions as they were listed.
We booked a 2 bed with sofa sleeper, fridge and microwave gulfview which is oceanfront.
Normally we stays at Shores of Panama but this was last minute so we decided to just book a hotel room. The fun thing was though that I did not have to worry about the kids messing anything up because it wasn't so fancy. and the beach just was not as crowded as it is up next to Pineapple willys and shores of panama.
The first room we got was in the Tides bldg. and was totally horrendous. We opened the door to the room and it was hot but it smelled awful but we figured out it was because they had cleaned the carpet and it was still wet. The air in this room did not work and the bathroom was sort of small with no vanity.
I called the front desk and talked to Tammy who checked us in and she quickly offered to move us. We had to wait until a room was ready but she moved us to the bldg attached to the check in counter and it was so much better. The people at the front desk were all really nice especially Tammy and Cornesha.
The new room was very clean and they even had put towels on the bed shaped into a swan.....cute. The view was great and everything worked. Housekeeping was very good about not being intrusive but making sure you had what you needed. I called to get an extra blanket and extra coffee and got both pretty quickly.
They also had included two breakfast coupons for each day of our stay and since there were three of us, the café let us use three even though they had a different date on them so we did not have to buy breakfast but one day the whole stay.
I can't say enough good things about our stay.
while we had a fridge and a microwave, it would have been nice to have had at least some kind of counter space or table near it to sit stuff on.
it has a balcony but no chairs to sit on.....kind of missed drinking coffee on the balcony
nothing fancy at all but this ended up being a pro too
was not impressed at all with the room in the tides bldg which seemed really run down
staff was all nice
right on the beach and the beach was not crowded
free breakfast each morn
nothing fancy so no need to worry about coming in frm the beach and dripping and stuff
nice clean pools
location is great
