This was the second time we have stayed in Shores of Panama on a girls trip. The first time was a few years ago and we had a great time. We obviously didn't experience any issues that would have kept us from staying again. This time, our experience was way different and will keep us from staying here ever again. First of all, the elevator situation is out of control. We waited 20-30 minutes for elevators on several occasions (no exaggeration). On our last day, we waited 25 minutes before finally hauling all of our luggage down 12 flights of stairs just so we could leave. Half the time, only a few of the elevator were working...and by working I mean at least you could get on them and visit every single floor on the way up or down (even though no buttons were pressed and no one was waiting at the floors it stopped on). It was incredibly frustrating. To top it off, one bay of elevators obviously stopped working (after the fire department came and got people that were stuck in them) and did they bother to put an out-of-order sign on them? No! Hotel security is ridiculous. They say there is no saving chairs at the pool with towels, but we only saw them enforce this rule on the last day we were there-Saturday- and only once. Also, they were extremely mean to children when they were enforcing rules (and I don't have children nor do I like them all that much, but I thought they were exceptionally mean to them. More bullying than gently enforcing the rules). This hotel is just tired and in need of renovation and new management. Stay here if you don't mind getting stuck in an elevator or, at the very least, waiting 20 minutes to get on one.

We stayed 10/11-10/14. They care more about the outward appearance than the unit or guests. I had to book last minute because of our previous accommodations falling through. I agree with the latest reviews about parking (absolutely awful!). I thought “at least they have plenty of security” but it didn’t stop my 10 yr old and 6 yr old witness a drunk bleeding man stumble from the stairwell and fall on the ground. The room was dated and barely adequate. The TVs wouldn’t work or the WiFi- I think because you can only connect 2 devices. When I called the front desk, they suggested I try other room passwords. So it was no wonder we couldn’t connect. We stayed on the 11th floor and parked on the same level, thank goodness! The elevators were slow and one was out of order part of one day. The pool area was beautiful but the water was too cold to enjoy. Be forewarned you can’t hang towels on the balcony - they will send a security guard to correct you. What a joke! We’ll never stay here again.

All of the negative reviews are on point...but there are work arounds if you’re willing to get up early and make your plans around the busy times. Yes, the parking garage is a disaster because of the tight spots, turn radius’ and pillars. The height is 6’11” maximum, we were in a loaner truck this time but our diesel super duty wouldn’t have made it had we brought it. Beat the elevator and beach rush by using them early, get your running around done early morning or late night. Get your beach spot early...personal chairs were already being set out at 6 am. There is the smallest beach access I’ve seen for a condo this big, it’s pretty cramped. The pool is one of the best I’ve seen, but once again, very crowded. Won’t stay here again, just because we like a more serene, less “happening” place. The condo we had was a great size and view, just heard LOTS of noise from above and below us as well as hearing the pool noise at night. The king bed was leaning badly down towards the head end...it was tolerable but not the most comfortable.

The condo was nice and clean, but the elevators were all either broken, or took 15 minutes to get to you, the parking is AWFUL..and the bed was so stiff I was in pain the entire trip just from trying to sleep a few hours a night. Wont be staying here ever again.

Think before you book. Asking for a specific room will not help. We were told we would have a certain room and we were informed by the rude front desk clerk that they choose the rooms the day before you check in. Even know we had a reservation that listed DO NOT MOVE when we asked for the manager, we were told he would be in at 9 the next morning Then when we settled for the room that was offered, none of the TV's work. Then when we went looking for help the clerk put up a sign said back in 30 minutes. Think before book.
