    Would recommend!

    We really enjoyed ourselves. The resort was not overcrowded, and very relaxing. Service was excellent, and the food was good, but seemed the same after several days, and restaurants did not have a very big, or good selection. The rooms could have been cleaner, also alot of the glass throughout could have used a good cleaning. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation. It is an awesome place with awesome views, and perfect weather.

    Exceptional staff

    Visited Dreams in Panama November 2019 for one week on a couples vacation and the best part of staying in this all inclusive was the friendly and exceptional staff. Namely energetic Francisco making unique and tasty cocktail concoctions at the preferred adults only pool Ella championing the bar in the preferred club room, always with a smile And Dennis and her staff at the spa always with a warm greeting. The amazing massage and spa service was top notch as we were lucky enough to partake in one of the packages.

    Playa Bonita Panama

    Very disappointed - not what was expected. Customer service ranged from poor to excellent - would have been content with a steady "happy medium". Had to put an effort into being satisfied with the good parts and try not to dwell on the negative parts.

    Food a real letdown

    Unlike other Dreams this was a Nightmare. The food was really bad across the board. Meat was tough and often over cooked. Selection limited and the Italian food really bad due to chef being incompetent you don’t put Thai seasoning in pasta coriander. Really?
