We enjoyed our stay. Being new to Panama, with little Spanish, we were so warmly greeted and happy to see that staff were eager to use their English. Thank goodness for us! We felt safe knowing there is a security station down at the gate by the road, checking everyone that arrives to the hotel.
Staff at the bar, the lobby, the registration and concierge desk were all extremely helpful.
Great price with a free breakfast included, which offered quite a variety and a cook who was right there to make you an omelette and had it delivered to our table. The pool was lovely. So was the exercise room, although I didn't use that room too much.
We used the Internet and were happy with its service. We found a few English-speaking channels on the television so this helped us relax a bit before bed. The views from our small balcony looked out over the rainforest with gorgeous views. We don't golf, so can't speak to that part of the hotel.
Beds were sooo comfortable, with lots of pillows. Bathrooms were a good size and came equipped with a hair dryer and some simple toiletries like lotion, shampoo, shower cap, etc.
I did not see an in-room safe though..wasn't a problem for us as we travel light and had nothing of value to put in a safe.
We like the people who were so kind and helpful, and that's what makes a place for us. We will be going back again in a few days. We appreciate all the help they provided in translating for us when we were dealing with locals to arrange for a rental car. So helpful and greatly appreciated! Then arranging for a free shuttle for us as well to get us to our rental car!
Note: Do not stay here if you like hustle and bustle...this is not for you. If you like a quiet hotel with a pool that you can pretty much have to yourself most days, as well as a quiet laid-back atmosphere, this is a great place to stay. Not too many people there when we were there, but it is likely not busy because it is low season.
