We were automatically upgraded to the town center suites, for what reason we don't know, but the rooms were beautiful, immaculate, and had the most gorgeous view of any hotel I've ever been in.

I reserved with late check out until 5 PM and they don't want to honored it. I had to leave the room for 2h30 because I negotiated with the manager. If not I would have to leave the room for noon. They tried at the beginning to give me a normal room in the main building when my reservation was...

Had a pleasant 2-day weekend stay at the resort. Had overall a very good stay, but you can definitely feel it is not a part of an international chain that has certain standards. Its a matter of small details, but what in the end makes the better experience. - The food was not fantastic, but there was a lot of...

The picture for this resort looks exactly like the Playa Blanca resort in Cocle, Panama which I want to note because I'm not sure if all of the reviews are talking about the same place. I'm talking about the one in Cocle. This resort is very very far away from the airport in Panama City. It took us three and...
