The views and the area around the hotel was incredible. The night safari was informative even the actual sightings were few and brief but you can't always have the animals on cue. The buffet was good and had a separate station for specialties. The view of the Chagres river in the evening was something to be remembered. The hotel has seen its better days.The maintenance is poor. The handrails on the ramps need a scrub bush and cleaner big time. Areas in the rooms needed paint. The tiles in many areas around the pool were missing or chipped. I never found the pool bar open. At one time, the resort was grand but now is OK. Take the golf hole flags down from the overgrow greens so you don't advertise what was in the past.
