We were in Panama City and came to Buenaventura for the weekend to see the black sand beaches and we are glad we did. The rooms were clean, though A lot of the furniture which is fabric and light colored was stained and a little bit gross. The kitchen in my villa was pretty stocked and we were overall very happy with the accommodations. There’s a pretty small amount of beach chairs but there is a nice little bar and on Friday there was a guy playing saxophone so we had some nice ambience. The staff is nice and I like the open air lobby. We ordered a van through the hotel to take us back to Panama City and we did have to wait an extra half hour for it to arrive as our friends did as well so that kind of put a damper on the end of our weekend. Overall we were happy and would recommend.

Paid 200$ for a night which by no definition is a cheap stay in Panama, the room was very deteriorated, counter tops were stained by cups, breakfast was included but again very poor in flavour, if you want to use any of the pools better be up by 6am or send someone to save you one by throwing a towel on the chairs (this happens in both pools and at the beach), if you happen to get there by 8 you’ll find a sea of empty spots with towels on. Overall it was not worth it, most enjoyable part of our trip was the company and the sushi rest. Dont believe the hype or rent an apartment.

We've been to this hotel several times before. They have a promotion after being closed for several months due to Panama's harsh and bizarre quarantine laws that practically killed the tourist season. Room's Director, Ricardo Diaz is a gem of a person. Took care to reply by Whatsapp and arranged 3 premier rooms due to my Bonvoy Status. We felt privileged there. The hotel was seeing its first full house of the year due to Carnival week, but all the staff was working to make sure service was prompt. Our breakfast was included but it is not a top-quality breakfast to command a price of $28. It was rather basic. Don't remember if it was better before Covid but needs improving. Tai Kai was excellent and the outdoor seating area was very pleasant this time of year. Beach area drinks and snacks were brought promptly and were Ok. The spa was offering limited service and they made me keep my mask on during the massage. I was allowed to use the wet areas alone for a half-hour after the massage. They loan bicycles for guests but I think they only had 2 working bikes and every time we tried to get 2 together, there was only 1 available, and my wife rode by herself. The rooms show signs of aging but all things worked well in our rooms. I saw some nearby rooms with technicians repairing the air conditioners. The hotel should get a renovation next year because it is a rather small hotel with 118 rooms and it could be upgraded to be the undisputed best in Panama. The staff is well trained and work hard to give good service. I recommend staying in this resort during Panama's dry season from late December to mid-April.
