We have just returned from Playa Blanca, Feb 19-Feb 26 - Panama and had a awesome time. Playa Blanca had the fastest check-in that I have ever experienced in my travelling experience. When we arrived at the airport the Sunwing reps gave us a card with our names and some numbers on stickies which were put on our luggage and...

Our trip to Playa Blanca was fun - but there were a lot of problems. This was my 2nd trip to Panama and my boyfriend's 1st. BEACH: Barely anyone swam due to the threat of stingrays and the red flag warning on all but 2 mornings of my weeks vacation. Most days myself and my boyfriend were the only ones...

The Playa Blanca Resort itself was Wonderful. 10 of us went and we all had an amazing time. The weather was HOT HOT HOT, and the food was best I have ever had at an all inclusive. The a la carte resuarant on the beach is a must. We had the chance to eat there twice and enjoyed it equally...

We just returned from Panama and one thing that is quite obvious right away is that they are quite new in the Service Industry. For instance, all the front desk clerks only spoke broken English (at best) which is a bit surprising for a resort. However, the biggest disappointment was with the Sunwing reps...both of ours had very poor service...

Hola! We thoroughly enjoyed our 1-week trip to Panama (December 25th 2006, to January 1st, 2007). It provided a mixture of sun, warmth (upper 80’s) relaxation, seeing the sights we wanted to see, and practising our Spanish. Booking: We have come to believe that when booking a stay during peak season (i.e. Christmas/New Year’s), it is better to keep requests...

For our first all inclusive vacation, we thought Playa Blanca was wonderful! The weather in Panama is hot, hot, hot and we just wanted a week to lie in the sun, swim and walk on the beach. Playa Blanca, being a smaller resort, was exactly what we were looking for. The rooms are simple but spacious, with coffee makers and...

First of all, we stayed at Playa Blanca from January 1st to January 8th. We were a group of 6 people in their 20's. We really enjoyed the hotel, the only problem was Sunwing! Too bad it's a Sunwing Club, it's a very nice place. We left from Montreal at 11:35, while we were supposed to leave at 9:00.. Not...
