I should live there....
Ashley C, Panama
Mon Jun 11 07:29:37 EDT 2018
We had a little scape there... We wanted to go there for a while... It didn't disappoint at all! We loved the rooms, the view. The pools were amazing... Literally you can have a pool per couple/family... The staff take your drinks there.. And they were amazing. The restaurant were great too, I strongly recommend to have seafood. I would love to stay longer it was really amazing... We'll be back soon for sure! Ps: the only bad thing was that the football desk wasn't in a good condition so we couldn't play in there.

Rooms had musty smell and overcharged

Simply terreible room was smelled extremely humid and could see mold in certain areas of cieling. Even after making a complaint not one person apologised or attempted to acknowledge the complaint. Still after 2 weeks of our stay we are waiting for several overcharges to be rectified. While Staff at the restaurant, bar and pool were lovely the Management has not a clue on how to treat or aknowledge their guest after a bad experience.... very unfortunate scouting for possible winter event I will not be choosing this location due to lack of interest of rectifying thier mishandling of charges and Management not acknowledging the room conditions... Panama in general has an issue with hospitality and service due to lack of interest in taking care of their guests... i just hope they treat their staff better... How the Marriott can even brand this hotel as an autograph collection is questionable.

Best beach property in Panama

We loved our stay at this hotel, the property is well maintained, the staff is friendly and helpful, the food is delicious. It was a great vacation start. We went after to Pedasi which was also great.

The good, the bad & the ugly

We had to change a dive trip at the last minute and decided to visit Panama & be beach bums for a week. After Delta burned us for $1000 to change 2 tickets to Panama, we were hoping the resort was worth it and they did not disappoint. The good - Beautiful grounds, several pools including an adult only pool (but you can still hear the kiddos 20 feet away, no biggie), 2 swim up pool bars, several restaurants on site, very friendly staff... The hotel is maybe 300 yards to the ocean so there is no "ocean front view". You don't need it - the grounds are beautiful with tropical flowers lining the walkways all the way to the ocean. Our room was spacious, we were missing an ottoman that some people would complain about, but we survived the week without an ottoman. Our room attendant was FABULOUS, Desiree, you're the best. Everything was just-so including special attention to organizing our messy bathroom :) THANK YOU Desiree!!! We were here in mid May and because it's the rainy season, we paid a very affordable rate. It did in fact rain a good bit, but most mornings were beautiful and by the time late afternoon rolled around with the rain, we were ready to get out of the sun anyway. We did not run in to a single employee that didn't make us feel welcome. This place will be on our list for return visits :) The bad - Just a few of the staff members did not speak English well. The only reason I'm putting this in the 'bad' comments is because I don't think it's fair to give an unfavorable rating because another country doesn't speak English. Be forewarned, you might not understand everything that's said! However, all of the staff are happy to help you learn Spanish :):):) The ugly - none. Great place and will probably visit again.

Beautiful, peaceful place to decompress

The hotel grounds and public areas are terrific. Multiple pools, bars and restaurants. The room was very comfortable, clean and in top condition. We had a view towards the pools and the ocean, but because the building is well away from the beach we could see very little of the ocean. The A/C was blessedly silent and kept the room temp and humidity just right. The king bed was super comfortable. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a much bigger selection than many other hotels. Also, we could sit outside on the patio while eating breakfast. We spent all day at the beach and pools. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas for shade. Multiple swimming pools to hang out in. We brought our own liquor to the beach and the staff were fine with that. They even supplied ice and cups. Dinner at the restaurant by the pools was terrific - a creative selection of delicious dishes. There was only one negative in our stay - The hotel turned on ambient music in the public areas at 7am which you could hear even in the rooms. Also, I would prefer to just hear the birds and water while eating breakfast.
