Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at this property for a week in April 2017. Very nice property with pools to meet everyone's taste - quiet, active and infinity. The beach is much less attractive and the resort does not recommend swimming in the ocean water. Apparently the ships that queue up for the Panama Canal passage have polluted the water. I did see kayakers...

Resort was very nice; however, they were very short of staff. People making up the rooms never left enough towels and wash cloths. Had a bath mat the first day and never got another one. Only got 2 beers a day in the room refrigerator. Only got 2 bottles of water a day in the room. No hard liquor available...

First, our room was on the canal side. Early in the morning and late at night the staff would wake me up as they transported food, plates, ect to the bar and restaurant on loud carts. Next, we took a bus into town at the mall. It was provided by the hotel for free. They drove us down at noon...

Beautifully manicured resort! Not over crowded, and plenty to see and do. The staff is friendly, the food is just ok, and though it is a renovated resort, it is a bit underdone in some ways, in comparison to the level of quality seen in other Dreams Resorts. It has been a great experience, but just somehow different. Anyone would...

Another friend and I vacationed here our 60th birthdays, along with several other friends and family members.. Victor and other management staff went out of their way to make it special for us. The food was quite good and the special attention very much appreciated. Lovely grounds! We had a great time --love Panama! Thank you!

“Stay on top of the housekeeping staff or you will find no towels and toilet paper. Even tipping them did not matter as they still left me without and took the tip of course. My bed was broken, they barely fixed it when it should have been replaced. I just dealt with it and a sore back the entire trip.”
