In january 2013 we stayed two nights on Kuanidup, San Blas Island. It's the best place to be and the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Just white sand, blue water, palm trees and coconuts. There's nothing much you can do, but relax in a hang mat or stay on the beach. The food is OK (basic) and the Kuna people (Indians) were friendly and helpful to us.
Unfortunately we booked this trip at La Estancia / Panoramic Panama. We payed almost 500 USD for two nights and everything should be included. In stead of three excursions we just got one. This was also due of the very unorganized and chaotic transportation of Lam Tours. The first day we arrived so late that we missed our first excursion. We also had to pay more for transportation because it was high season. So the excursions and prizes we agreed were changed at the last moment. We didn't have much options: pay more or stay in Panama City.
You also should be aware of there's no communication between the people on the island and the people at the booking agency. We ordered chicken because we don't eat seafood, but there wasn't chicken.
When we came back in Panama City we explained our disappointment but they were not very helpful.
I recommend you to visit San Blas because it must be one of the best places in the world, but don't book it at La Estancia or Lam Tours.
