Great vacation resort

ACCOMMODATION: We stayed at very nice and spacious room near the beach. It was clean and well equipped. Very nice was view of sunriseBEACH AND POOL: Beach was ok and almost all the time only several people there. You can go for a nice long walks along the beach to discover the village, local bar & restaurant or busy beach of Royal Decameron hotel. There is also good offer of water sports. Main swimming pool is good if you like bar in the pool and loud music. Second pool is more quiet and suitable for children. It is worthy to go to the large salty pool close to the residential part, even it is paid extra. It is very nice pool and there is also good a la carte restaurant, bar and water sports, so you can enjoy all day there. FOOD: Food in the main restaurant was tasty, there was every day variety of quality meals. We did not try a la carte restuarant on the beach, but it seemed also good. ENTERTAINMENT: Bars offer good strong coctails and you can enjoy interesting programme every evening in amphitheatre. Then you can go to dance in the rhythm of modern Latino music in the beach bar every night.We had a great holiday and surely will choose this hotel again when going back to Panama.

No No and No... think twice before booking this hotel

The place was completely disappointing, rooms needs maintenance as soon as possible, restaurant always full with low quality, we even had to announce that the plates were all dirty when we went for lunch. We tried to go to the big swimming pool, a guy told us we needed to walk over a kilometer to get to the restaurant in a very rude way, the receptionist was also rude and they did not have the type of room we booked. NOT recommended at ALL.

Good for the price

This place has seen better times. The swimming pools, the tables and chairs in the restaurants, the balcony doors don't close, the room sofa has no back cushions,closets without drawers, no hot water, the TV has channels that are not clear,cumplimentary water only the first night (from then on you have to buy it). There are two restaurants were you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they are far away (for my taste and that of my friends) from the building we were staying in. The food was OK. Coffee and mix drinks not so.Customer service was courteous. Sometimes (due to rain) we were provided with transportation to go to the restaurants. We were a group of 20 and nobody really enjoyed salt water pools even though they were clean, the beach was fine too. We had dinner at El Velero and it was very good. Rooms were clean and the AC worked fine. The gardens seem well kept in general. The view from the Town Center Suites was either buildings, pools or parking lots. Good security.

Playa Blanca Beach Resort was one best family vacation.

We stayed at the Tower Center Suite for two weeks, had the best time though out our vacation. Clean well maintaned, best customer service, A++ house keeping ladies, and the most gorgeous view of any resort I have been. Okay on the buffet food part. Having more variety would help. If you are planning to go family vacation, I absolutely recommend to visit this amazing resort.We are going back this year in August with our children. Helen Ghebreyohanes. Chicago

Lines Lines Lines

I give it a 2 only because I don't want to be that mean. My wife and I decided to spend our 30th Anniversary here, no Bueno. My wife a native Panamanian and I have been traveling back here for the past 30 years and decided to give this place a try. From the git go it was typical Panama style of waiting in lines at check in even though we had reserved and paid on line for our romantic get away, the wait was around 45 minutes in the hot heat and humidity. Just at the end someone offered us a drink, the bell man Luis from Florida was great I give him a 10. gave us an overview of the facility and escorted us to our room where the key card didn't work and the poor guy ran all the way back to the lobby to get it fixed..The food sucked so far but lets give breakfast tomorrow a chance.
