A disappointment

This hotel needs work. The room was very stark, no pictures or decorations. On the weekend they play very loud music and plates of food are left out around the pool, so the birds are all over that. The buffet is not that great, and the only restaurants open are the Asian and Mediterranean. On our last night the Asian was the only one open and they were booked for the night. The beach is not clean, lots of plastic cups and such left I would not recommend this hotel.

Average all the way around!

My partner and I booked this resort and then read the reviews. We made the assumption that it runs under the Sheraton name and it must be reflective of the others we have stayed at. I was afraid of what we might find, especially with some of the really bad review. So we went with some reservations. First impressions were good. Very clean, nice looking buildings. We drove into the resort and were struck by how empty it was and how lacking it was as far as welcoming us to the resort. We got to our room and luggage very quickly and due to how empty the resort was we were upgraded to a spectacular ocean view king size bed room! The room itself was clean and one quick phone call to housekeeping we were able to get towels and water bottles. The view of the resort is gorgeous, many different pools and lots of seats on the beach. However only one way to the pool bar - that is to swim up. No other bars poolside to sit and relax outside of the water. Mostly people from Spanish speaking countries at poolside, at the beach and in the resort itself. The grounds are kept extremely clean by all the hard working staff - there is always somebody wiping, sweeping, and mopping all over the grounds - downside is you have to speak spanish to really enjoy this place. It does not cater at all to English speaking people - however we found a few staff who had spoke better than the others so we managed. Two of the worst things on the resort are : The buffet and the Entertainment (lack thereof). The buffet was mediocre at best and reminded me of the buffets I had in Varadero maybe 20 years ago! The a la carte restaurants were 5 Star - Sakura-Japanese Olivos-Mediterranean and Coco Solo- Grillhouse - all served excellent meals and provided excellent table service - expected from The Sheraton. The entertainment was actually sad and I felt a little embarrassed for them. We have been entertained at some amazing resorts in Cayo Coco and Punta Cana and these were just sad all around. The Karaoke was especially sad. The resort was quiet of any entertainers during the day - thank god for the DJ who played excellent Reggaeton music from his little hut all day long. My partner and I enjoyed the gym in the mornings - really good machines, equipment, towels, and water cooler. We also enjoyed the billiards room on one of the really hot days when being outside was unbearable. The cappuccino in the afternoons were lovely!! We took the excursion to Panama City Canal and city tour - going to the canal was a major disappointment - no ships going in and out. Our guide seemed to know we wouldn't be seeing anything. He offered us to go on our phones on Youtube to see a video of what we missed in person! For $90 per person they should have timed it better. Our guide seemed tired and it didn't seem like he could be bothered with the tour and his job, instead spent time scrolling through Facebook when he could have been interacting with the tour bus and giving us more knowledge of his country. I have to commend him on his ability to switch between Spanish, English and French though. Im not sure how this resort is during peak, busy time, but our experience in Mid-May was definitely mediocre - 3 Stars. I would rather pay a few hundred more for a real 5 Star. Thank you to all the staff for being pleasant and hard working.

Such a bad experience...

Rooms are terrible, dirty, even the air conditioner didnt work. The staff is not friendly at all and could fix a simple problem like the room conditions. Needs renovation, not a good quality hotel at all and food were bad... Not a five star hotel, not even close! I wouldnt recommend or return to this place at all!

Disappointing experience.

I will break down in bullet points the pros and cons Pros. Good Pool area. Decent Beach Staff, they do the best they can. (parking entrance welcome was the best) Cons Overall conditions of the hotel Room(very poor). Need renovations urgently. Lack of Hotel Amenities such as hand towels, coffee, face towels. Food quality below average. Sitting space for food service very limited. ( I had to eat in the room, took the food by my self) No minibar, only water. No good value for money. Conclusion, not returning or recommending.

Not that bad

So, this is absolutely not a five star restort by any means. I am actually a bit surprised that Sheraton puts their name behind those five stars at all. But... after reading all the horrible reviews here on TA I must say we expected a lot worse. The hotel itself is a bit worn and a bit outdated, but the overall impression for me is fairly good. It really is a very nice pool area with a lot of options for small children. The staff really tries their best to make your stay as good as they can. And the rooms are more than ok. The food is mediocre, so don´t expect any culinary experience. I guess we were kind of lucky since the hotel only had about 40% occupancy when we stayed. This probably made the staff much more availible for us, but I can only review from my experience and that was not bad at all. Don´t come here with expectations of a luxury holiday and gourmet food. Come here if you want a nice hotel with friendly staff and a beautiful pool area. Laugh a little about the small flaws in the service, and you will have a very nice stay.
