This was a beautiful resort in a beautiful country with a lot of history to see. The view from the resort included ships lined up to go through the canal, lots of islands city lights and very relaxing. Beautiful pools and grounds. It was a great vacation.

Very few staff speak English and makes it difficult to communicate. Buffet food usually cold. And labels a bit mixed up Bar Service has been the worst, always short staff.

When we booked this resort we did not know that it had earlier been an Intercontinental Hotel. Seems AMA resorts purchased it, it was going to be a Secrets Resort then at some point changed their minds to brand it a Dreams. Good thing. We've been to both Secrets and Dreams and this is definitely not a Secrets. The good:...

Great site, perfect accommodations, outstanding food, terrific beach, and a fabulous canal tour highlight this trip. Too bad the music that could not be escaped from anywhere on the resort. Not even the room could provide solace. We did our homework on the internet and with our travel agent and never read anything about this. The "preferred guest" pool and...
