My husband and I traveled to this resort from January 20-27 and had a great time. Since we booked with Sunwing/Signature vacations from Toronto, we flew into the Rio Hato airport vs Panama City which is about 1.5 hours from the resort. When we asked why, they explained that traffic in the city is a nightmare and the departure tax...

Nice property with HORRIBLE service. I wrote to the hotel last month after reading awful reviews and they assured me they had fixed issues. They promised "300 new deck chairs" which are physically impossible as we counted them upon arrival just for fun, under 100. The pool bar is going to be a sore spot for the week and no...

I enjoyed this resort. It was not coveralls big and everything was easy to walk too. The bartender Lombardo made our vacation memorable. The food at the buffet was pretty basic, not tons of variety. The restaurants were good with the crab cakes at the oceans buffet being our favourite. The Italian was our least favourite. The entertainment crew was...

This is an average All Inclusive resort, I do however see why it did not make it as a Secrets. The level of luxury is not there. Compared to other Dreams it is average and I think it will do ok as a dreams. The rooms and beds were comfortable, clean and had great air conditioning. The balcony was very...

We stayed at Dreams Playa Bonita Panama the 4th through the 10th of February. Resort was very nice but needs some work. It was nothing like the pictures. We are preferred members and did not feel that the services were the same as the other resorts we stayed at. Here are a few of our issues: no one at the...

Place was nice, food okay (but not great) entertainment was very bad, nothing to do after dinner and far from town. Daily schedule would say entertainment and no one would show up, ask employees and they didn't know anything, Friday night a piano player and a singer, she went to the bar and played on her phone (didn't sing) then...

This hotel is not up to the dreams standard. We have stayed at many of the dreams hotels and this one was no more than a sunscape. Upon check in, the lady at the front seemed less than happy to help us. We were supposed to have a preferred check in and it took her about 20 min to figure...

Nice place overall. Rooms are spacious and clean. pools are nice. Service is very good - although not quite as friendly as in other caribbean places (but that seems to be a general Panama thing). The buffet is nice. Good selection for breakfast and lunch. The restaurants are good. Like the relatively small size - easy to get to everything....

We traveled with a group of 19. The staff and hotel were very accommodating. We wanted to have meals together as a group and they were able to assist in making this happen. The rooms were beautiful. We were on the 5th floor. Staff went out of their way to help in any way they could. One of the highlights...
