Be careful if you need a legal (fiscal) invoice for your trip you will not get one from this hotel, they laundry your payment through other countries like El Salvador then refuse to give you an invoice for the money you spent. Always full of excuses and empty promises. They will reply to this review saying they will fix the issue, however they never fix anything. Hotel and staff are great, the problems are in the administration.
A week at Royal Decameron Panama
My family and I arrived at Royal Decameron slightly worried about the reviews we had read about the Resort. Let me tell you how wrong we were to worry about that. The rooms were nice and clean, staff was great and friendly, but what made this an excellent trip was the nightly entertainment offered by Pedro García and the rest of the team, funny, fantastic and creative show, I hope they are all extremely well paid because they are the reason I would consider coming back here.
Nice rooms and ok restaurants. Friendly staff. But why is that they have to charge - really expensive - internet that does not work? We have been living in small guest houses on remote Islands other places in Panama where the wifi is working fine. Places like this should offer free wifi anywhere in the resort.
I was invited as a guest, for free along with my accompaning paying friend. I OVERPAID.
* Electriciity and internet was out at least three times during our stay. * NEVER had hot water. * The hot buffet food was tasteless, unimaginative, and COLD. * Staff not informed as to goings on in the resort. * Staff made no or little effort in communicating with English speakers * For a country that experiences an average of 80" of annual rainfall, there are no covered areas at the arrival reception. Registration is on the top of a hill, with all activities down by the shore line. Elderly guests (60+) would have a real problem. * There is ONLY A/C in the room. All restaurants are ALL open air, (no respite from the stifeling humidity and heat). I could go on, but it's not really worth my effort and this vacation is best religated to non memory.
I had a great overall experience at Decameron when I visited with 2 friends. All in all, it's beautiful, lots of pools and loungers and the food was good. We had some issues with getting pool towels on our day of arrival that really disappointed us since we were looking forward to our swim, which still happened, but we had to get dressed wet afterwards. Lots of Spanish speaking guests and locals so we got to enjoy the culture and mingle with locals, but if that's not your scene I'd avoid it. I will come back for sure.
