6/10 Good

Like rest better than pets
The best option at the playa blanca / Buenaventura area, hands down. Well located, and maintained premises. We did not have a pleasant stay however, due to a nearby guest with an unruly dog which kept barking in the early morning hours, disturbing our rest. The staff needs to do a better job clustering together guests with pets, if they are allowing them. Seems improvised and affects other guests experience. Dont get me wrong, I like dogs, but a careless frontdesk and inconsiderate guest makes a bad combo

6/10 Good

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….
