Probably the worst service I have ever seen. Cuba was bad and food bad - but this is worse. Let's start with bus from airport to the wrong building. Nobody knows what's going on. Hardly anyone speaks English. Next after check in - not one bit of info is told to you or offered. Had no idea where anything was....

Average hotel, average Pacific beach, just average. Stayed between Christmas and NY to get out of the city for a couple days. We had sworn not to go to all-inclusive places again, and this stay brought back memories of why we had sworn that previously. Resort is huge, and the pools are huge. But they close early (WHY???) and open...

I have been to several resorts in Panama and this one so far is the worse. Check in was easy and fast only because we showed up 2 hours late to check in, resort area was beautiful and inviting when you first get there. Once checking in I asked about the Big Lagoon pool, which is not only not available...

Before checking in to this all inclusive resort, I had a good hard look at their website. It looked lovely and I was very excited about my mini break there (January 2017). It boasted the largest salt water swimming pool in Central America, 8 different restaurants and even karaoke. Free food and drinks for the whole stay :) (or so...

We stayed New Year's Eve and January 1st at the Town Center Suites where we enjoyed the clean, spacious room and the spectacular view from the big balcony. The entertainment during the day and the evening was relaxing, enjoyable and funny. We were surprised by the variety, quality and presentation of the New Year's Eve buffet and celebrated the New...

Second time in Panama in two years. We found Panama to be a beautiful, fairly safe country, with kind and helpful people. Last year we stayed at Royal Decameron for the same period of time: Christmas and the new year. Although a decent experience at Decameron, we decided to try something else; based on the reviews Playa Blanca was worthy....

My boyfriend and I stayed here in mid December 2016. Typically the end of rainseason. Luckily it only rained once but was cloudy every day. By the end of the trip, we both concluded that this was not worth the money we spent. Being Canadian/American- By day 2 we noticed that not only do the guests not speak English, but...

This is a smaller resort about 2 hours drive out of Panama City. Rooms are typical with king sized beds, sitting area, balcony, room safe and shower in the bathroom. Rooms are serviced adequately but there was never any hot water or really even warm water, even after complaining. Some days there was little water pressure too. Seemed prevalent throughout...
