This is a smaller resort about 2 hours drive out of Panama City. Rooms are typical with king sized beds, sitting area, balcony, room safe and shower in the bathroom. Rooms are serviced adequately but there was never any hot water or really even warm water, even after complaining. Some days there was little water pressure too. Seemed prevalent throughout... More

If you plan on a family vacation, make sure you visit during the dry season. There is little planned there for when the weather is inclement. The developers have a large conference center, which was moldy due to lack of maintenance. However, they could have provided entertainment there nonetheless for evenings and/or inclement weather. They refused to do this. Thus,... More

Arrived with early check-in ($15.00/person extra) thinking we would not get a room but just have access to the facilities. To our pleasant surprise the room was clean and we were given the keys to the room. One lady at the front desk was very friendly, the other slightly snooty. The friendly one gave us a map and circled some... More

We were automatically upgraded to the town center suites, for what reason we don't know, but the rooms were beautiful, immaculate, and had the most gorgeous view of any hotel I've ever been in. The food was pretty good, I'd recommend getting an omelette or egg made how you like it at the breakfast buffet. For lunch we usually did... More
