    Not at all a 5 Star Resort

    I’m giving 2 stars because the of the bartender at the main bar. Otherwise this resort doesn’t deserve abut 1 star. 5 stars is entirely too generous. The property is outdated - rooms were GROSS. There was mold in or showers stains on towels and sheets. It smells mildewy. The grounds are full of iguana feces and it reeks near the pool. The buffets are a joke. There were maybe 5-6 options of food at each buffet. Even for the price point - it was not worth it. I was highly disappointed!

    Aged but clean and beautiful

    The property is very clean and safe overall. What it lacks in visual, aesthetic, and modern updated appeal it more than makes up for with a staff that as a collective were quite impressive, helpful, responsive, friendly, and kind. The weather in Panama is hot and humid it rains nine months out of the year and we attended during the rainy season. It was not rainy every day usually for hour or two, and then the sun will come out and it was beautiful, this has nothing to do with the hotel that it was incredibly hard to dry anything like swimsuits so forth and so on because of the humidity, we requested a humidifier and it was received and made a huge difference. Housekeeping was great. We always had enough of anything we needed overall it was a good stay however the hotel is dated and needs a complete overhaul in modernization luckily, they have an excellent staff and great cooks too , please most

    Wonderful Country, excellent resort staff, major upgrades needed

    While the staff on the resort are the most wonderful people I’ve ever met vacationing; the rooms are dated as well as in need of a major overhaul for sprucing for the amount of money it cost to stay at the resort. Many spiders and a few tony bugs enter underneath the entry door due to worn rubber strips. The couch in my room had many stains on it that o would not sit on it. Scraping of built up on the grout is required in the shower as well as flooring. Shower in my room needed fresh caulking. The walkway getting to the rooms should be sprayed or powerwashed of dead bugs and stains. I am grateful that I brought blankets from home to sleep on. The lobby area was nice, aesthetically; however, the common cushions on the furniture could stand to be cleaned as well. The food was great and staff were overly attentive which is a bonus. Dreams’ property owners should be grateful to the staff because if it weren’t for them I would’ve taken a loss on my money and stayed in the City at the Hilton or the W Hotel.

    Very Friendly People and Staff

    We came here for a wedding and chose it because it was relatively inexpensive for most of our guests and the all inclusive nature meant they didn’t have to spend a lot of money beyond the cost of the room. We were pleasantly surprised at the resort as a result. Check in was slow but once that was done, we didn’t have to make a lot of decisions beyond what to eat and drink. Lucy at the VIP desk helped us organize a large group excursion to the Panama Canal and Old Town. Isaiah was the tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about the area. He patiently answered all of our questions and made sure we had enough time in all the stops. Everyone was so kind and so nice everywhere we went, down to the maintenance people (Jose and William) who led us to see sloths, even climbing the tree to get a great picture for us. The bartenders (Zach and Eric, specifically) could not have been better, learning our names and our favorites. The wedding was so beautiful and Alejandra did a great job helping us plan what was a large wedding for the venue. We did not have high expectations for an all inclusive resort, but we found the staff to be patient with us as English speakers, responsive to all of our requests, and they each went out of their way to make us feel at home. I know that some of these reviews on this site are not that great, but for us, we were very pleased, and we are pretty discerning people usually.
