Great facilities. Great locality. Hotel is family friendly but childcare needs attention. Our grandchildren (4 and 5 years) were released from the children's crèche with no supervision - we found them wandering about pool area! Food was definitively not five star quality.

this was our first trip to panama. We wanted to stay somewhere near the beach. This resort was nice but not a beach resort. The location is good since is only a 1/2 hr drive to Panama City. Next time we visit panama we will be staying at a beach resort where the fishing is good.
