For A 31/2 Star Resort It Was Great. It Was Always Clean ( i.e. Rooms & Grounds). The Staff Were Friendly And Yes Most Couldn't Speak English But Hey Most North Americans Couldn't Speak Spanish. Lol There Was Enough Staff That Could Speak English Or At Least Understand What You Were Asking/Needed. The Beach Vendors Were Respectful And Would Leave...

First of all don't believe all the negative reviews....yes this resort has lots of hills and stairs so if you have mobility issues it's probably not the best resort for you. It is very hot so if you don't like lots of heat and sun then this isn't the place for you. However, before we left we read negative reviews...

The service was actually pretty good. Great beach front room...but not soundproofed. Food was mid range but repetitive. Could not find 24 hour snack /grill restaurant though advertised. We went knowing it wasn't the Ritz, and expected and accepted all the negatives this resort has....but the least they can do is to train their staff to at least understand a...

This resort has definitely gone downhill!! WE have never been but booked based on recommendation from our travel agent who had sent clients here and they were very happy. As well friends of ours had been in the winter of 2016 and really enjoyed it. We always take reviews with a grain of salt as you cannot please everyone. Well...

We were so excited for a year to be going here on our winter vacation, the flight was great landed in Rio Hato minutes from the resort! Loved the check in process at the airport! Our room was in a good location! Wasn't happy with all the stairs we had to climb to get down to level with our room!...

We went with another couple. We spend most of the week in the adult only pool overlooking the resort and the ocean. Enjoyed the food and the heat. There was a lot of walking from our end of the resort to the other. They have a beautiful huge tree they make look stunning

We stayed at The Royal Decameron from Feb 23 to March 6. There are many positives and many negatives. We made the best of it and did have a great time but this resort, and possibly Panama in general, wouldn't be something we repeat. The positives : !) We flew via Air Transat which meant we landed minutes away from...

So this was my 3rd time at this resort in 4 years. If you go thinking its a 3.5-4 star you will be disappointed. It is pushed to a 3 star. If you like the beach/ocean this is not the place for you. There is a lot of jelly fish and it is almost always rough. There is barely any...

The great thing with Panama is that the weather is always hot! But I have to agree with another reviewer that staff were very unfriendly and unhappy to be serving guests at the resort. At my previous employer customer service was key, so not sure why it is not pushed in a country like Panama where tourism is the prime...
