    I've lived in Panama City for quite some time and had some friends come in from Florida. They all enjoy surfing but have never had the chance to surf a wave like Santa Catalina offers. We decided to stay at Punta Brava and it was terrible. The food was overcooked, all of the rooms were incredibly dirty, and it was...

    If you're planning in advance, there's no reason to stay here. When we arrived, all the other beach hotels were booked, so we ended up here, but it was bad.

    Overpriced. Location for surfers is great - right in front of the point. But, and it's a big but - the accomodation standard, for the price is poor. Our room wasn't clean. Under the bed had not been swept for a long time, there was chewing gum stuck on the bedside table and the bathroom was grubby. The ceiling leaked...
