Went to Gamboa Rainforest Resort from a package I brought on the internet. It is very close to the city of Panama and easy to get to which is a plus in some ways. Upon arriving we had to wait about 30 minutes or more to check in as a coach load of tourists arrived. We checked in and with resorts like this I would expect to be greeted with a welcome drink but we were not. In the evening we ate at the bar and had a fantastic burger, followed by a short night tour around the resort looking for wildlife which was nothing amazing and something we could of done ourself. The enxt day we did a tour around the nature reserve which we were put under pressure to go around as quickly as possible making it difficult to appreciate everything at our own pace.
The bedroom was nice with a balcony and hammock - nice feature. The nest day the hot water did not work for 20 minutes, but eventually was fixed.
All in all a nice place but needs work.
