Celebrating our wedding anniversary.
We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary... We really had a great time. I surprise my wife with a dinner on the beach (of course I paid additional for it but it was just perfect). We loved the place. Only one think to make this place even better, a bar on the beach and another near the activities pool

Service Not Up To Expectations
From fire alarms going off at 1 and 2 am, having to call to get maid service and/or towels, and having no water or the inability to control the amount of hot water, the service at the hotel left a lot to be desired. In all fairness, the rooms were clean, the facility is beautiful, and the pools and beach areas were well maintained. The staff was very friendly and responsive (except when the water was turned off and there was never an explanation for the fire alarms), but the hotel itself is poorly managed - or at least not managed to my expectations. Also,the hotel has over 400 rooms and only 5 pieces of equipment in the gym.

Excellent Family Getaway...
We had a weekend stay. It was relaxing yet the kids really enjoyed themselves with the pools, slides and other activities. The food was delicious, I was happy and surprised to find so many healthy options at the buffet not many hotels see food for fitness addicts or athletes. Overall the attention was great except for one waitress who spilled a drink over my husbands food, kind of cleaned it and walked away not verifying if he had finished eating nor coming back to clean up until when asked to do so...but I guess you can't have it all.

An okay place to stay
Although I had a great time in Panama, this hotel could work on it's customer service. I, as well as other guests in my party, had to frequently request towels and blankets (almost daily). The wifi was not good; you frequently get kicked off of the wifi and it didn't work all the way to the pool, as suggested by the front desk.
