We were at the RD over New Years and then to Panama City for the last two nights at the Radisson Decapols. We never saw or heard of anyone else seeing jellyfish or stingrays. This was our first time to Panama so we can't say if it has gotten worse. There are palapa hogs for sure - reserved with towels all day and nobody ever comes. We paid extra for an ocean view and only got a room next to the road with a view of that on the groud floor. After complaining immediately about that and the mould and mildew in the room and the broken lock they gave us for the safe.......they found us another room after two pm- we arrived at 6 am. The new room was in building 48 on the top floor.The slider was broken, air con not working and the bathroom door Knox kept coming off on the inside. Eventually things were fixed- but the worst thing was the disco everynight blasting out very close to this end of the complex.Warning -take earplugs.

My guess is that the sea creatures problem is seasonal.

(But I have no idea in which season they come).

The jellyfish and stingray are seasonal problem. Currently they are not a problem.

The resort hasn't gone down hill, they have expanded to 3 lobbies. This is the summer for Columbia, etc. so there will be a lot of Columbians and a lot of kids.

Woody's is open just down the beach for great seafood and putine, among other delights on the menu. Just look for the Canadian flag.

Heard one person got stung during the Holidays, but that's it. I'm really not sure what is was or if it couold just have been a cut because that person stepped on a seashell. We spent all our time at the beach and some in the water without seeing anything.
