We had several problems in the room, apart from being dirty and when talked to management they asked us to leave and didn't refund any money for the rest of the days...

Just came back from vacation at the Playa Blanca Resort in Panama. From the pretty bad reviews I had seen here, I was a bit worried at first and decided I wouldn't have any expectations whatsoever. I was thus gladly suprised upon my arrival there. We stayed in building #1 (close to the lobby area). Although not the newest, it...

As we arrive they waited for us by the bus door handling refreshing cocktails. Checking in was fast and simple, we got the 5th floor on the west wing it was a bit far from everything, but quiet.
