Ok for the price!!!!!

This beach hotel is decent. You are not going to get the luxury if thats what you are looking for, anyhow this hotel is close to the beach and is all inclusive. Great for family and friends is not quiet at all FYI...

Awful experience. Worst resort in Central America

The worst experience we ever had. The food, the service, the show, the people working there was terrible. Place is full with locals with 1/2 off day passes. 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 we paid. Pay a little more and go next door Riu, don't waste your money in this place.

Excellent Resort

Great place to stay. My wife and I stayed here for 7 days and it was great. The staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to make us happy. One staff member picked mangoes for us. My wife saw one of the managers from the buffet restaurant who asked her "how we were enjoying our time here". My wife said it was great and made reference to the coconut on the tree which was beside them. He promised he would bring one for her later. My wife thought he was joking. To our surprise, we were having lunch later the same day and he showed up with 2 coconuts for us at our lunch table. Wow! That alone made our week. Overall, lovely place for a vacation. The food was excellent, room was clean and quiet. Highly recommend this place for vacation. We could not have asked for more. Thanks everyone especially to the manager at the restaurant and the gentleman who picked the mangoes for us. If you are English speaking, just brush up on a little Spanish before you go and you will have a great time. Excellente, Mucho Gracias. Nos Vemos la proxima vez.

Family Fun in Panama

We travelled with a group of 8 at the beginning of February 2017 staying in the Town Suites near the salt water pool. We had 5 adults and 3 teenagers in 5 rooms. We loved it! We hadn't even left the and we were talking about going back. There were so so many things to love about this resort and it's amazing staff, here are a few highlights: Rooms - every room we had was large, with a small kitchenette and great views. Sure the rooms are a bit dated but there was absolutely nothing wrong with them. In our 5 rooms we had 9 beds, 8 of which were perfectly comfortable. Of course, my bed was hard as concrete. After the first night, I asked the front desk if I could be moved to a different room (though I really loved the ocean view) or if they could change my mattress. They promised they would see what they could do and asked me to check back in the afternoon. An hour or so later a member of our group mentioned they saw staff carrying a king size mattress up the stairs and wondered if it was for my room. It was! And it was such a gloriously comfortable bed! Amazing! I am eternally grateful to the young woman at the desk who made it happen, though I'm sorry to say that I didn't write her name down. Beach and pool - Every morning a few of us would get up early and watch the sunrise on the beach. It's a great stretch of beach for appreciating the day as well as taking a long walk. The black sand beach is one of my favourites that I've been to. The only downside to the beach is the dogs that run in packs. The pool was refreshing and where we spent the majority of our days. We never had an issue getting chairs and umbrellas/palapas, but then we're up early. We did have access to the big salt water pool included in our trip but after the first day there, we all agreed that we preferred the main pool near the beach. Food - Delicious! Even the pickiest among us was thrilled with the food. And the service was amazing. We're not foodies so we really weren't expecting fine dining. The restaurants only had wine and soft drinks but it was a 2 minute walk to a bar for a different drink if you wished. After the second night, the wait staff were happy to go to the bar for me and get me a cocktail since I don't drink wine. Drinks - Delicious and plentiful! We were never without something cold to drink. The bar staff were always fun and cheerful and made delicious drinks. The Plaza Bar was typically staffed by Ivan or Jose and was one of our favourite places to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. It was also our favourite place to relax after dinner. Thanks to Norian, Jose and Ivan for always making sure we had a beverage.Staff - So amazing! Every single person we encountered was cheerful and sweet. There is a huge language barrier in Playa Blanca, Panama. The majority of their tourists are from other Latin American countries. While we were there we made friends from Ecuador, Columbia and other areas of Panama. Canadians and Americans were definitely the minority. Just be willing to try to communicate. Even my poorly pronounced Spanish was greatly appreciated. Animation team - Most of the activities and nightly entertainment were in Spanish but we could still play volleyball and enjoy the shows. The teens in particular enjoyed the various activities the animation team hosted. Gregory in particular made sure our kids were having fun. Location - We had nothing but sunshine while we were there. I think there may have been 5 mins of soft rain on our last day. February is definitely the time to visit. My only complaint would be teenagers from Ecuador that were on spring break. Not the resorts fault. Just something I would consider when booking next time. We loved the people, the location, the food and every minute of this vacation! I wish I had written this review sooner so I could have remembered their names. I've said it before, you'll have the kind of vacation you expect to have. If you're taking pictures of missing tile and complaining, then you won't have fun. Relax, be nice and try tipping. We'd go back!
