My mother and I stayed at the Hard Rock in Panama City (all-inclusive) after a 10 day visit to the Royal Decameron Panama. Needless to say, after 10 days of Royal Decameron food, service and beds, Hard Rock became heaven for us both.
The buffet at the resort was phenomenal. Perhaps this was because Royal Decameron food would make most things taste amazing, but the selection was truly mind-blowing. The salad bar was always full of anything you could possibly imagine in a salad, the hot food selection was different each night, the desserts were mouthwatering, and there were also numerous choices of sushi available. The only thing I didn't like about the buffet was that they have a confusing system. They make you sign a cheque at the end of the meal even though we were dining all-inclusive. We waited and waited for the waiter to come by with it one night, at least 20 minutes after finishing dessert but he did not stop by even once so we could ask him. So we left and he chased us down which was a little irritating.
The bar was also much better in comparison to the Royal Decameron. The bartenders are very good at what they do. Their bloody Mary's were my favourite, along with their frozen margaritas. The only downside was that the wait at the pool bar would sometime be a long wait, but only because they took their time with the drinks to make sure they were perfect. The lounging chairs surrounding the pool were very comfortable which made it easy to kick back and relax.
The rooms were also great. Our view was a very nice city view and the beds were very comfy. The rooms were very spacious and the tv was a decent size. In addition, the washrooms were too very large and the shower pressure felt amazing, again, after our stay at The Royal Decameron. The only problem we encountered was that our maid seemed to enjoy being our alarm clock. Even with a Do Not Disturb sign up. On check out day she woke us up at 9am and told us to check out, check out wasn't until 12 or 1.
Overall, at the Hard Rock Panama we had a very pleasant stay. The location was great, especially if you enjoy shopping as there is a shopping mall made very accessible from the hotel. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating, and the food was very delicious. We would gladly return to this hotel.
