the are prone to double charge

I was able to catch a mistake from the would have resulted in double charging me for the entiretly of hotel room charge. Our friends were staying at the same time and they had the issue of double charging for breakfast They either have a very inept accounting system/staff or they love to double charge you

5 out of 5

Excellent hotel and experience.

Pros: The hotel was very clean and the grounds were kept very well. There were plenty of activities and on Saturday night they hosted a beach party and BBQ.
Cons: Faster poolside service would be nice. But all things move a little slower in Panama.
This is an excellent resort in an excellent location. I will be staying at this resort each and every time I visit the beach in Panama. This was a great choice.
