Three days were fine

Based on our stay, my husband and I will not try one of these chains again. There was much to recommend it, but nothing that would encourage us to go back. The hotel is beautiful. Rooms are excellent. Food was delicious. Activities were rained out. Chilled champagne in the room when we arrived. Excellent service at check-in (although they tried to sell us some kind of packages). If you go with a group of people, then this might be a fine place to have a party. As a couple, however, we wanted to stay in the pool or walk on the beach —- but truly the mosquitos did not allow. Strange, as we had just come from the rainforest and not been bothered. As you walk around, one can see all the other people covered in bites. Disheartening. What good is a resort if one cannot sit next to the pool and chill?

This was one of my better resort experiences. The food was very good. As it as it gets for any Latin country. I was also very happy with the service, the friendliness of the staff and their enthusiasm. Everyone was so eager to be there for you without being overly pushy. I also want to give a shout out to Vivian who made our 2nd day at the resort. She runs the recreation department and is very energetic. We had a great time at all the onsite activities and it really got our group involved and doing things together. Only downside was the bugs during humid nights as we were near the rain forest. But the sunrises were beyond this world.

Worst Stay Ever

The staff at this resort was downright rude and unconcerned. Breakfast food was cold and several items were over cooked. As for the room, it was nice and the view was good. On two occasions, we tried to contact room service for over 2 hours and when the front desk offered to take our order, they wanted to charge us because it was past 6 pm. Nothing in the room material said anything about a room service charge nor was this told to us upon check-in. On one evening, the electricity went out and the hotel did not have a back generator so we had to use our cellphones for light in order to eat dinner. The restaurant on the beach has a lot of birds that fly around and land on the buffet, plates and eat off the spoons. Yes, I said land on the buffet, which means that the warmers were not working and the food was COLD! There were not enough waiters around to swat the birds away and the plates were turned upright so the birds were landing on the side where you placed your food. The drinks were so-so but they ran out of Coca-Cola, which was crazy. Overall this resort was the worst one that I have been too.

Amazing stay

Stayed for a week with my daughter, very comfortable and clean rooms.Vivian and Caroline in animation kept us interested and occupied in fun activities throughout our stay. Cesar and especially Eugenio our servers were very attentive and friendly. We will miss Anjimaria who greeted us it seemed everywhere and at all hours of the day by our names. Daniela and Maria at the front desk were helpful with check in and sundry issues. Roxeanna and Jorge were also friendly and attentive, and Alexander was interesting and informative on our rainforest walk! Very satisfied with our visit to this resort and would recommend it highly to friends and family!

Relaxing and Peaceful Vacation

If I could have stayed another week, I would have. The resort was so relaxing and peaceful. It was not crowded at all. We had amazing service the entire time. We did elect to upgrade to the preferred club and upon arrival, the front lobby staff were extremely prompt and escorted us to a separate floor to be checking in order to bypass the line downstairs. Alex, our concierge staff member, went above and beyond for us. Our luggage did not make it to Panama due to the airline mess-up and when we informed her, she took it upon herself to take our luggage information, make regular contact with the airport, and arrange it to be delivered. She even did these contacts via her cellphone in her off hours. We were extremely grateful for her hospitality, which helped ease our minds and let us relax, while she took care of the stressful part! The service was excellent the entire week. The preferred club has a private pool area, but both pools are beautiful including an infinity pool on one side. However, the Preferred Club bartender, "T," was AWESOME! He memorized our drinks after one day and automatically brought them to us each day. Additionally, he brought bottled water without asking and was observed to clean the entire area. He took a lot of pride in his work and even handed out Panama bracelets to us. He made some delicious drinks and there was a wide variety of options. He definitely made our trip! The beach is about a mile in length and there is easy access from the pool. The water isn't "Caribbean blue" since you are on the pacific side, but I don't think that takes away from the beauty of this location. Since you are close to the canal, they are several boats waiting in the distance since they have to wait for inspections and schedule to go into the canal. It is fun to watch and at night time, the boats are lit up on the water, which is beautiful especially during dinner. It was great to sit with champagne on the balcony and just watch them. We had a beautiful suite with great room service who brought us candy such as Hershey kisses each night. There are four restaurants and each were delicious with a wide variety of food. The fourth is only included with the preferred club. There is also a 24 hour cafe with amazing coffee and pastries! They have a large fitness center, which had everything you need for a week. They do spray for bugs each morning, but obviously you are near a rainforest, so it's not full proof. I wore bug spray (they also provide bug spray wipes in the room) and only was bit a few times. The bees are out during the day, but only near the leftover drinks. Primary language is Spanish and helps to know some to order drinks, but everyone speaks English too. Water is filtered. I highly recommend visiting the Panama Canal and the Old City and Gambia Tours offers an affordable half day tour. Buy your souvenirs in old town. They are so much more affordable than in the resort. We used Alain from Panama Road Runner as a shuttle to and from the airport and he was knowledgeable and fantastic, as well! I wish I could go back!! One of the most peaceful and relaxing vacations I've ever had!
