A resort to me means getting to use everything. When we arrived Sunday the floor had sand all over it. The next morning I ask the maid about cleaning our room and she said she would after she cleaned the empty rooms, she did however give us some towels. After dinner we went back to the room and the floors...

We stayed in the hotel side. Never again. Upon check in the room had HUGE piles of sand all throughout. We couldn't call the front desk because our phone in the room didn't work. Plus, no balcony! Even though they said we had one. We had 6 women in the room and were given 3 towels. When asking for more,...

It's a beach hotel so I didn't expect much. After some of the poor reviews I was worried. However, for teens this place was adequate. Rooms lacked enough storage space but we made do. Beach was beautiful and not as crowded as other beaches for condos. No frills but we were here for the outdoors.

The beach and view were amazing! The girls had fun at the pool with the music. Seating on the beach! However, the rooms needed updating. Mattresses were hard and cracks in the bathroom floor and wall. It was ok for one night, but I would not have stayed longer.

Dirty, wait.....FILTHY motel at best. This looks like a rent by the hour type place. There were hairs, mold and bugs in our room. The place was loud and PARKING IS A NIGHTMARE. There is limited parking and the overflow lot is blocks away and beware of getting your vehicle stuck there in the sand. Security MATT is helpless. Will...

The room had rust on the ceilings. There was roaches. The bath tub felt like you were fixing to fall through. It messed up our vacation. Could not find another room in Panama so we had to drive back to Alabama. Had to wait two hours in line to check in. No wifi.

We were in building #4 in room facing pool. The room was very basic but has everything you need (fridge, microwave, small closet rod, tv, etc.... Having read other reviews that the beds were hard, I brought my own down mattress topper. It appears that our room had been recently renovated given the fresh paint, new tub and shower, new...
