Since this hotel is not all-inclusive, can someone give me an estimate as to how much 2 adults would spend per day on meals and let's just say a handful of cocktails each? Also, any restaurants or shops within walking distance? Thanks.
Drinks and cocktail is around $10 range. Dinner is around $25 to $50 per person. -
there are 4 restaurants (sushi, pizza, steak, and panama cuisine). There is a also deli that sells sandwich and lots of snacks.
There really isn't anything walking distance from the hotel property. It is at the very end of long road and the property itself is extensive. You can't walk the beach to other restaurants or hotels nearby. It is fairly isolated. You would need to taxi somewhere. It's a resort property and prices would be as expected for any hotel of its type. Don't expect bargains. Food in Panama is pricey due to import costs. My traveler advice--either eat a late large breakfast and a small snack for lunch if you don't want to overspend on food.
