We stayed at the Royal Decameron from 26 December to 9 January. The site was booked to capacity (even overbooked, as some people had to be put up in villas located outside the site). Air Transat flies in and out every Monday two planes from Montréal and one from Toronto; there was also a fairly large group of Italian visitors...

We stayed at The Decameron from Dec. 26/05 - Jan. 9/06 and absolutely loved it! The resort is huge with lots of pools, bars and restaurants to check out. The rooms were plain, but, clean and the resort itself is kept in immaculate condition. The reviews about standing in line for the a la carte restaurants are true - it...

We were three families staying at the Royal Decameron in Panama arriving on December 26th until January 9th. All of us really enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with the kindness of staff and excellent service. Wanting to go to Panama city and visit the Canal, we rented our own bus ($220.00 for the day) instead of taking the...

Myself and 2 girlfriends travelled to the Decameron from November 25th till December 9th. We loved this resort and we loved Panama. Our flight was long but well worth it.

I read with interest how the reviews for this hotel have deteriorated over the last few months. I had reviewed this hotel in May 2005 when the majority of the reviews varied between 4/5 star. I notice now that many of the recent reviews are 1/2/3 star. Having just returned from a 5 day stay I think I can interpret...

We stayed at the Decameron Resort, Panama, from Nov. 28 - Dec. 12, 2005 and had a fabulous time. The resort is beautiful - the grounds lush and spotless.

I always find it interesting when certain reviewers claim that other people are incapable of judging the quality of their vacation experience. That aside, The Decameron Hotel was excellent. I generally dislike all-inclusive style hotels because the staff are treated horribly by guests who assume that saving up $1000 earns them a week of nobility. If you like grilled fish...
