Our Opinion

Located about 90 minutes south of Panama City, the drive to this resort can be a bit long from the airport, but it's an easy stretch of straight highway and a good way to see a bit of the country. The resort itself is quite large, with over 800 rooms and growing. Like the other Decameron properties, this one offers great value and service as well. You'll find a mix of North and South American visitors at this resort. The Royal Decameron is definitely recommended, but if doing a package to Panama we would recommend the split package with a couple nights in Panama City as well.


Royal Decameron Golf Beach Resort in Panama offers a traditional all inclusive experience and more. Located on 2 kilometers of secluded white sand beach, Royal Decameron boasts 8 large pools, 10 restaurants, and 11 bars including 1 swim up bar. All of this is surrounded by lush gardens on a hill overlooking the Pacific ocean make the Royal Decameron an ideal location for your Panama vacation.

Location: On beach just a few minutes from the town of Santa Clara. The Royal Decameron Panama is approximately 1.5 hours from Panama City.

For a quick scape, but not for your dream hollidays.

nice hotel, good facilities, but buffet was almost the same all 5 days, liquor of brands that no one knows, and dinner all night was in different kins of thematic restaurants but they didnt have one of emblem dinner of the country thay where named. example, mexican restaurant doesnt have, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas.another bad point is too many people having just a day, so that make the resort like a beach for rent, not a place to enjoy like other resorts in diferent places like punta cana or cancun.Facilities are a little old, needs to be updated.No internet, you have to pay extra for the service.

Great except for a internet and a few low season quirks

Stayed a couple days, overall experience was really great. I'd definitely consider returning, love the beach, availability of shade, outdoor eating spaces were awesome and front desk staff super helpful!! Improvements: 1) internet should be free, fast and widely available in all areas of the resort. (it's 2017, charging for wifi is lame) 2) low season = not all restaurants open which reduced the variety (expected and not a problem for us, but is worth noting) 3) odd that there is no elevator ...tons of stairs (again, not a big issue for us)

Nice place

Place was great food was ok nothing extravagant, the carts took you all over the place if needed a ride but after all that eating and drinking walking wasn't bad it only a mile long, they forgot to clean my room one day out of the 8 days spent there. the water slide pool was a mess with all these rules no watches no jewelry so after wtg on line they tell you this and stick by it, so I took my chain off and tied it to my shorts now u tell me what's the difference there? was the life guard hoping I lost it?? rules are always broken, lol. also the sales rep people that walk around the resort become a pain in the Butt, Just say no not worth it at all....... to buy into there resorts all over the world for 50k or more lol.SAfe 3 bucks a day isn't bad at all, works keeps your passports and money where there suppose to be.

For the price, great resort and great food!!

I went with my girlfriend around the end of April and I have to say for the price of this resort it was great. The only negatives I can say about this resort is the amount of walking you have to do and the buffet reservations. Other than that the beach, rooms and food was overall awesome. Just be prepared to walk or try getting one of the rooms closes to the beach and pools. All the a la carte restaurants are really good excluding the Mexican. Rooms were always clean. Definitely worth the money. Just for tips, no wifi in the rooms only in the lobby's. I would most certainly recommend this to anybody!
