We were very disappointed with the resort rooms and the minibar stock especially when you are in the preferred club. The furniture was dirty, the bathroom door needs to be replaced the wood is coming apart at the bottom They are in need of an upgrade. A variety of food was not available at the resort. Don't get taken by the preferred room upgrade they are just like the nonpreferred suites.

. I was worried about the reviews of the place being dirty and staff being rude but this place is great. On my second day I had a fluke accident playing volleyball and tore my tendons, needed surgery, can’t bend my knee for three weeks. So instead of leaving after a week to tour Panama. I’m stuck here for an extra week and a half. I should be upset but it’s difficult when the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Food is great, staff are always asking how I am and if there is anything they can do. Being COVID times I expected things to not be perfect because of staffing or supply issues but it’s hard to find much fault. I had room Service for the first few days after surgery and the food was hot and tasty. Not as good as the restaurants but still great. Normally after a week at an all inclusive you get tired of the food. There are 4 different restaurants and they change one of them up daily. Entering week and I’m still enjoying it. The location is decent too. If you avoid traffic it’s a $6.00/ 20 minute ride into the city. If you sit on the beach or by the pool you can watch the ships entering the canal. They are good at following mask protocols etc. Not a bad place to be stuck when it’s -15 and icy back home.

This was an ideal experience. I have nothing but good things to say about my vacation here. The food was okay but not exceptional. The grounds were very beautiful and well kept. The drinks and the room were very good.

The location is nice since it is close to the city. Otherwise, the hotel is old and needs a renovation. The ac does not cool well. The beds are not comfortable. There is only one restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. Only three dinner options with limited menu items. The variety and quality of the food is poor. We ended up going to the city for dinner or lunch multiple times due to the poor quality. The pool facilities are ok. The water is cool, not warm pools. The beach is it swimmable. No water sports. The activities are limited and nothing fun. The show was disappointing. Overall, a very disappointing stay. Would not recommend.
