Well this resort falls short of what the Intercontinental brand stands for. It's old in style and in need of a refurbish. However The pool area and grounds are nice. The room is large but the air conditioning sounds like a jet engine. The club lounge was well worth it, we did not go all inclusive and it seems they...

I am a bit torn regarding this resort. The grounds are lovely, as you can see in the photos, but I've been to much more sophisticated and service-oriented resorts. The rooms are nice, but the showers are not. All rooms have an ocean view (some more than others). I cannot comment on the value as this was booked as part...

Our family just returned from a 5 night stay here and could not be more pleased. What a great property! The architecture of the property seems to be geared towards the Panama of Old with all the modern day touches. Everyone of the rooms faces the Pacific where at any time you can see in the distance a dozen or...

The hotel and grounds are nice. It's right on the ocean and has its own beach. The pools are used more than the beach. The adults only pool ended up being our favorite place as the other pool with the infinity edge had a lot of splashing kids. However the bar and restaurant are at that pool. There was always...
