Best service - ever

We have traveled a lot and found that the service here was in the top. The team, especially the manager and Daniel, made us feel like family. Our son got sick and they really took care of us. They were genuine, warm and fantastic. They checked on him several times during the stay. The hotel was beautiful. It was not very busy which meant we had the beach and pools almost to ourselves. It rained during the afternoons but it was a nice break from the sun and the storms are amazing. The creole restaurant was our favorite. The breakfast was good with the freshest of fruit. The dinners were great - we went back because the food was that good. The options for being outside were amazing. Cabañas in front of smaller pools for privacy. Bigger pools with more seating. The beach with a beautiful view of the ocean. The beach bar made great drinks and we had passion fruit in everything. I don’t generally like to return to places I’ve been before but I’ll make an exception for this place. Thanks to the service and experience, we’ll be back and next time for longer than 2 nights.

Wonderful trip!!!

My husband and I just had an amazing 7-day trip to the Buenaventura resort to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment we arrived we were treated so well by all the wonderful staff. Our room was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the pools. The bed was super comfy and room kept very clean. We flew into the Rio Hato airport and it was a quick 15 minute transfer to the hotel. We ate at all the restaurants. The breakfast buffet was always good. Unlike other reviews we thought there was good variety in food and never got bored with the selections in any of the restaurants. The beach was clean. The pools were plentiful and refreshing. All well kept up. Here are some staff that made our stay memorable. Leonardo, Irisheel, Emir, Denia and Elvia and the staff at the Asa’o et Pesca’o are truly amazing. Looking forward to coming back.

Rooms are not well maintained

Unfortunately even though we received an upgrade the room floors were popping up. Seems like there had been an issue with flooding. the rest of the hotel is in an incredible venue but again it seems like it’s a bit run down in general. The breakfast was really good.

This is our time to take a vacation every year this year we chose Panama. I booked This property because it looked fantastic and it was except for a couple of reasons. As a seasoned traveler and Platinum Premier for life I didn’t even think to look that it was over 2 hours from the airport. My fault. We arrived and checked in to a absolutely wonderful room. The front desk staff was wonderful. Marilyn, Rafael, Carlos and others were awesome as well as the restaurant and pool staff. Here is why we left after 4 days instead of 10 booked. Absolutely nothing close to do or any restaurants nearby. Also a huge food and beverage mistake 2 out of the 3 restaurants basically have the same menu. We tried all 3 but the Japanese restaurant was closed multiple days. Even the little convenience store had odd hours. We got sick and tired of eating the same thing. Now come the bird. I don’t if this just started but you can’t sleep they come at 6 pm and start leaving at 6 am. Very beautiful resort but if it’s slow season it is like being on a stranded island. We also went to use the computer to look for things to do in Panama City and it was loaded with porn. Notified management and they promptly took care of it but there has to be some sort of program to block entry. We weren’t offended but it could have been a kid that viewed it. We moved to a Westin in Panama City as we wanted to see some sights. If you want to decompress at a beautiful place this is the place.

Lovely setting, some 21/2 hours from Panama City with gorgeous landscaping, lush gardens, beautiful villas, but with some maturing to do. The resort is classic JWMarriott. We stayed in their resort in Costa Rica, which was very similar in layout and character-villas, landscaped gardens, golf course, all leading up to a stunning ocean front resort. The trouble is that the resort still needs to evolve into the luxury venue it strives to be, which it could do easily by upping its customer service a notch. Service in the restaurants is very friendly, but slow. Small touches are absent from rooms, which already look dated, even though the resort is quite new. It also lacks the usual gift/beach attire shops that people staying in resorts love. Where else will you buy that atrocious coverup? A big minus is the tiny beach. The resort is huge, but the beach confined to a small strip, where, predictably, people stake out the few palapas and never return. (Which should be a punishable offense anywhere!!) That said, the restaurants are solid, drinks tasty. The property is gorgeous. Just needs a few tweaks to be first rate. Hope it ups the ante!!
