My stay
The hotel is overall an OK stay. Doesn’t make me want to go back to Panama. The area the hotel is located is not that convenient if you want to hang out in the city. All inclusive is always great. The food options are limited. A lot of meat choices unless you have dinner at the seafood restaurant. Which is only certain times. Now trying to get in contact with someone is a task unless you are physically at the hotel. For ex. We ordered breakfast and it didn’t arrive until about 4 hours later. Now this is after numerous calls and walking to the front desk multiple times. When they did make it. Some of it was wrong. They did offer us a special dinner which was ok. Now after check out we left a few shirts in the room. We emailed and only heard back about 2x within a week and still no resolve for the shirts. Going was the same issue. I emailed multiple times to set something up for before but they take days to respond.

6/10 Good

The property was absolutely beautiful and well cared for grounds. There was absolutely nothing to do entertainment wise. They had a mariachi band and/or disco night one of the five days I was there. The rest of the time we went into the old town and entertained ourselves. The restaurant selections stunk, we ate in the Preferred lounged and Boudeaux most nights. The rest had very limited selections. Almost nothing! The drinks were excellent in the Preferred Clubhouse with Sanchez (who was amazing). The rooms, although clean and beautiful were a little worn. The in room condiments were laughable..mini liquor bottles and M and Ms. We paid for Preferred status and this was unacceptable. The coupons have a catch $$$ then get $10 off. Again the staff was wonderful, especially in the restaurant and club area; however, they really need a PR person to liven them up…it was like a retirement community with great scenery.

It was a very nice resort. Pretty clean. Food was ok. The bad is wasnt alot to do other then go to the pool and eat. They had very limited entertainment which last maybe 30 min. Not really anything for singles, club didnt open until 11 pm so most people get sleepy by then if theres nothing to do. There are no places nearby to walk to off the resort.
