Our room was clean and quite large. The front desk staff not well informed about the hotel or nearby facilities. We were told at check in that our 15 year old was not able to eat in any of the restaurants, except for the buffet, unless he wore long pants and a collared shirt. That was totally untrue! People had shorts, flip flops and t-shirts on in the restaurants. The food was decent, I would rate about 75%. Nightly show was enjoyable, although not exactly family friendly, a little racy for our teenagers. The dancers were excellent. The beach was nice and clean, you could walk for a couple of miles and sometimes only see one or two people. Plenty of places to sit and read quietly. Swimming was not real safe at the beach because of the current and strong waves. I would recommend to friends, however, bear in mind it is more of a local vacation spot for families of Panama, Costa Rica, and Columbia. We enjoyed the people we met in Panama on our excursions as well as the few we met at the hotel.
