We stayed Feb. 9-16 2017. The hotel property and pools are beautiful! Our recommendation is that you read all reviews carefully! This is not a 5 star all inclusive property. The major portion of guests at this hotel were conventioneers and people who booked rooms only. The inclusive aspect appears to be an add on. The weekends were crowded with...

All inclusive Pkg had good food and drinks! Just stay clear of the burgers. Excellent pools, beach is ok to walk, but too shallow here for water sports. Most activities are around the pool experience. Rooms clean, comfortable.

As a lifetime platinum Starwood member. I've been to a lot of hotels for both business and pleasure. This one was set up as both. They had a busy convention center that handled several events while we were there but never did we feel that our presence was a hinderance. I was u graded to a great rejuvenate suite with...

This hotel is beautiful with amazing facilities, service, food and ambience. It's just a short drive from Panama City which makes it a perfect destination to enjoy the beach and nightlife of the city with little effort. The beach is small and experiences low and high tide but at high tide it's very nice. During low tide the water is...

This hotel was a pleasure. The pools, the food, the rooms--it is simply a great ambiance. Casual and fun. I say this in spite of the fact that the name of the hotel is a lie: there is no beautiful beach. There's little sand--all rocks and shells, and the water is dirty. Nice gym and spa; live music in the...

This is a lovely resort hotel overlooking the ocean with many amenities for guests: the beach, the pool, several restaurants and bars, activities for adults and children, etc. Had a wonderful room with an ocean view, to watch the long line of ships waiting their turn to go through the Panama Canal. With a good set of binoculars, one could...

Comfortable room, nice pools, ocean is a bit rocky under the water but you get used to it. Restaurants are very well done, staff is very gracious. The seagulls are impressive, use the kayaks to get a closer look. If you are courageous you can make it all the way to the closest island...
