Beautiful Property, Clean Rooms, Friendly Staff
Sarah W, Hartland, Wisconsin

The property was beautiful - it could have used a little maintenance in the pool area, but other than that it was well kept. The room (preferred club ocean view) was clean - they could have restocked the mini fridge more often, but it is all inclusive so all we had to do was ask and we were always able to get more water. The staff was extremely friendly and always greeted us by name, they made us feel extremely welcomed and were more than willing to help with anything. The only real downfall was that only 2 of the restaurants were open at a time so we found ourselves eating at the same place almost nightly.

Great hotel for a relaxing vacation

I stayed for a week at the Dreams Delight. It was very quiet at the hotel because it is low season. The resort is really nice. Great large rooms. All amenities included, mini bar, comfortable bed and good quality WiFi everywhere on the resort. The food was very good, especially the French restaurant Bordeaux. Staff are amazing, friendly and very relax. The pool is very nice with a beautiful ocean view. The beach is great for walking but it's not the best for swimming. If you are a white sand crystal blue type of beach lover, this is not the place for you to be. If you like to stay by the pool and have a great view with hills and palm trees that's a great choice for you.

We spent just over a week here and was a bit disappointed! We have stayed in many Dreams resorts and this does not compare. They have a great property grounds are kept really well the watching the boats line up for the canal is a nice view. Panama has a huge opportunity to get more North Americans now that the majority of the Caribbean has been destroyed this year with all the hurricanes. With that being said if you expect to have the same level of service that your use to in North America don’t go! The staff never smile, lots of them do not speak English and they make you feel as if your being intrusive when you ask them a question. I had one employee at the front check in desk roll her eyes at me and sighed as if I was making her day difficult to answer my question. How about do your job with a smile. When we first arrived no one was there to great us or help us with our bags. When we checked in was never given a map of the property or told where everything was and no one helped us with our bags to our rooms. After traveling 19 hours to get their it was not a great first impression! Our room attendant would not get to our room until after 5 pm at night when we were getting ready for dinner! We only lad our room cleaned 3 times out of 8 days. I finally went and asked to have our attendant to clean in the am after not having it cleaned for three days then they cleaned it with out changing our sheets on our beds! Food was just ok they do not cater to North Americans so don’t expect to see the breakfast foods you love. If the staff was happy and smiled and made conversations with the guests it would make a big difference!!

Not the kind of Dreams resort we expected

This was a trip for our 25th wedding anniversary. We've stayed at 2 RIU resorts, last was RIU Palace Peninsula in Cancun. We loved the balcony with Jacuzzi and the atmosphere was fun. Last May we stayed at Secrets outside Cancun. It was extremely nice, food was great, especially the French resort Bordeaux. While there, we toured a Dreams resort. It was pretty new and beautiful. Pool off rooms, etc. So, when decided to visit Panama for our anniversary, we chose Dreams. However, we were not aware of the distinction of a Dreams resort and a Dreams Delight resort. First, ala carte restaurants not all open every night. In fact, the use the buffet restaurant as the Italian restaurant Portifinos as well as The Seaside Grill where there's inclement weather. Bordeaux was not open 2 of the 4 nts we were there. Closed on Fri & Sat! I was really disappointed in the choices for dinner. Saturday night, only options were Portifinos buffet or Seaside grill buffet. We complained to the front desk. They suggested Room service, which carries a $25 service fee. Customer service waived the fee and sent a bottle of red wine. Regular Buffet restaurant, only open for breakfast. Food is important to us. As is the view. Brown looking water first two days due to winds. Nothing outside open. Didn't know about the low tide issue on the beach. Unswimmmable. You see mounds of blackish sand where water was and will be later on. No waiters at pool on a Friday. Saw them Sat and Sun. Alcohol choices very limited. Most staff did not speak English. Not even understanding the drink of the day. Not our type of resort. We'll be going back to Riu, which by the way was a little cheaper this time last year and much better experience.
