Staying in a hotel in Panama City just won't do after having visited this place. Everything else will just be a poor comparison to this place. There is never a lack for something to do here. Eight pools, three walk-up buffets and eight other a la carte restaurants (that require reservations) gave us something new every day. We spent a good amount of time in the adult only pool ouside of building 46. It has a swim-up bar from 1000-1700 and a zero-edge overlook of the Pacific and the rest of the resort. What a great place. To give you an idea of the size, I'm a fairly fit person and walking from one end of the resort to the other takes about twenty minutes. Our first night was in a villa on the golf course and the next two days were in an Ocean View room. The view was phenomanal. I had spottings of iguanas everyday. The service was friendly, especially if you took the effort to use a little Spanish and get to know them. I would be tired of an endless ocean of unfriendly faces if I worked there. Everytime I would use their name (tried to pronounce it as they would also) and ask about where they were from I would be greeted with a big smile and quick service from there on out. Any complaints about folks being unfriendly there are completely unfounded. Be good to those serving you and they'll be more than willing to give back!
