We had a reservation, found the place without a problem, but there was only a young boy to be seen. He was sweeping out the carports. There were no signs (a severe problem most everywhere in Panama, it seems....especially on the roads). We asked the boy where the office, or reception was, and he pointed toward a dark desk area where we stood for five or so minutes before we again asked him about someone to help us. He motioned over toward a unit and I said, "No, we have a reservation," whereupon he disappeared, supposedly to get someone. After more minutes and closer examination of the property, we decided to leave.
This place could be wonderful, and that was probably the plan, but it is unkempt and uninviting. Almost appears to be abandoned.
At U$150 per night and lackadaisical service, it does not seem to be worth the drive from Pedasi.
