We stayed New Year's Eve and January 1st at the Town Center Suites where we enjoyed the clean, spacious room and the spectacular view from the big balcony. The entertainment during the day and the evening was relaxing, enjoyable and funny. We were surprised by the variety, quality and presentation of the New Year's Eve buffet and celebrated the New...

Second time in Panama in two years. We found Panama to be a beautiful, fairly safe country, with kind and helpful people. Last year we stayed at Royal Decameron for the same period of time: Christmas and the new year. Although a decent experience at Decameron, we decided to try something else; based on the reviews Playa Blanca was worthy....

By the end of the trip, we both concluded that this was not worth the money we spent. Being Canadian/American- By day 2 we noticed that not only do the guests not speak English, but...

This is a smaller resort about 2 hours drive out of Panama City. Rooms are typical with king sized beds, sitting area, balcony, room safe and shower in the bathroom. Rooms are serviced adequately but there was never any hot water or really even warm water, even after complaining. Some days there was little water pressure too. Seemed prevalent throughout...

If you plan on a family vacation, make sure you visit during the dry season. There is little planned there for when the weather is inclement. The developers have a large conference center, which was moldy due to lack of maintenance. However, they could have provided entertainment there nonetheless for evenings and/or inclement weather. They refused to do this. Thus,...

Arrived with early check-in ($15.00/person extra) thinking we would not get a room but just have access to the facilities. To our pleasant surprise the room was clean and we were given the keys to the room. One lady at the front desk was very friendly, the other slightly snooty. The friendly one gave us a map and circled some...
