Playa Blanca Beach Resort All Inclusive, Rio Hato
It’s not worth the money
The relation price vs what you get, it’s not worth it. The food needs to improve a lot, they have a lot of variety but has no taste at all. The all you can drink needs to improve the quality of the liquor. For the price I will definitely not stay again there.

Luis J, Vanessa, and the rest of the staff are very accommodating. I am excited for the next time I can enjoy their food!!

Worth the price and feels like luxurious panama
Beautiful resort... definitely had little things that need some work, like caulking, or touching up paint... but the room was clean views were great. Food was pretty delicious, especially the Chinese restaurant by the beach. Can't beat this deal.

Horrible Hotel Room In A Great Resort!
This Was Our 7th Time Staying At Playa Blanca But Our 1st Experience Staying At The Hotel Which Was Absolutely Aweful.InThe Past We Have Stayed In Town Center Which Is Part Of The Playa Blanca Resort And Is Fantastic But Was Full.If I Had Only Known What A Horrific Experience At The Hotel Was I Would Not Have Wasted My Free Nights And Waited For When There Was Availability At Town Center. The Playa Blanca Resort Is Awesome With Its Beach,Swimming Pools,Restaurants,Buffets,Drinks, Service,And Entertainment. The King Room Was Horrible Non Functioning Air Conditioner Which We Requested To Be Repaired Many Times In The AM And Finally After Calling Again And Again In The Evening It Was Repaired Making Us Late For Our Dinner Reservation.The Same Happened On The First Day Trying To Get Someone To Enable Our Safe.The Toilet Never Got Fixed.No Water Pressure In The Shower.Filthy Disgusting Stained Furniture In The Room That Should Have Been Thrown Out! And To Think I Used My 2 Free Nights For This Room And Still Paid $104.50 A Night.Horrible And Inexplicable!!!!!

not a fan!
The food was terrible. Flys on open Buffett. The music and entertainment was so loud in our room it was impossible to have a conversation nevermind sleep. No children wearing swim diapers in the pool. Dirty floor in the bedroom. Took 20 min for the shower water to get warm and by then the shower was overflowing from not draining. Staff was friendly but the clientele was not! Overall worst hotel experience I've ever had.
