Never, ever will I read a one star review...

From a one review person. I think you'd find something wrong with a free week at a Ritz. All you do is place a lot of angst on people that truly want to learn about a property before they book.My wife and spent 8 nights at Dreams Delight and had a great time. Our room was always cleaned and we always got towels. But you know what? I'm smart enough to bring a couple beach towels back just in case. We always had hot water for showers and our AC worked great. Our mini bar was filled as stated. We left a list of our drink choices and they obliged. We saw the missing tiles in the pool...guess what...we didn't step on the floor in those areas. No cuts. Oh, and by the way...didn't your mom teach you not to run near the pool with wet feet? We took our time and never slipped once.Yes, there are limited selections for meals. We asked for bacon EVERY day and got it EVERY day. Breakfasts were great, lunch buffet was ok, the lunch grill was very good and the dinner buffet was good. We ate at Bordeaux three times. Trust me...I gained weight on this trip just like every trip.People complain of the language barrier and rudeness of the staff. How many times did you initiate an "hola" even to the gardener? I bet you had your nose in the air so high and never even saw them. Our experience was that the staff knew enough English to get us served. We had no issues with this common complaint. But we said hola a lot. My only suggestion would be to improve on the alcohol choices. Beefeater or Jim Beam are not top shelf. And maybe a few more food stations to choose from. Bottom line...if you had this many complaints at this resort, you missed out on a fun relaxing vacation.My guess is that you should go on staycations because you obviously can't have fun anywhere else.

Beautiful property- everything else lacking

Found the property great, unfortunately the resort very short in the food, entertainment (for adults) and daily room restocking. I found the upgraded package less then advertised. In room mini bar was a joke with three miniature bottles of Vodka only, and never restocked.

Great place to relax

The people who wrote bad reviews about this hotel are just looking for the negatives things in life.We have been to many resorts in our 30 years of travelling and this was one of are favorite resort.The staff was polite and gave us a great service. It's a great place to relax, the food is various and very good. We would recommend this resort for couples and family. There is a private section for adults only at the pool area so you can relax and enjoy the view with a drink. We were given a bottle of champagne in our room by the hotel after a day at the beach without asking for it ! can you ask for more ? the service was like that all week. It does't have to be to complicated in life to enjoy a vacation in the sun at a resort like this who offers great service. We would recommend !

Best Place to stay in Panama

I recently spent 3 days at the Dreams Delight Playa Bonita Panama and loved it.If you've traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and Central America, then it's time to go to Panama.
