The property has beautiful ammonites like the pools, light house, beach, however it is a bit outdated, in terms of decoración, furniture, style. Does not feel like a modern or luxury hotel anymore.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
It was one of the best resort I stayed 10 years ago. At the time it was under Bristol name. It was very luxury with pretty facilities. Now it needs big time renovation . Toilet did not flush properly. Pool area not nice looking. Water in the pool dirty. Staff is not trained as it was before. I hope they would renovated the same way as before. So it would come back to the same vibe as before. I think this is still one of the best resorts in Panama, but I hope it would look like old times….
