We visited the Royal Decameron Beach Resort for the second time in the first 2 weeks of September 2016. Our first trip there was in May 2006. We were extremely disappointed this time around. Compared to 2006 the food was the worst we have ever had, never a hot meal to be found, and the quality was not quality. The... More

I've been to Panama twice once in November then again in February...no matter when you visit it will be hot and beautiful. This resort is large with several steep inclines or many stairs. Good rooms, food and drinks though and I would definitely return.

This was my first time to Panama. We travelled with 3 couples. I was disappointed in many areas but it could have been worse? Cons: Communication from staff. I have never been to a resort with such a big language barrier before. Some staff spoke very little English, others did not speak English whatsoever. There were a lot of locals... More

A long time ago this resort was a nice place, but things have changed. Food The food is absolutely horrible, they use the cheapest ingredients on the market and the snack bar is beyond horrible. Their gourmet restaurants have nothing gourmet about them. The food is just profoundly terrible and that my friends is an understatement, you have to eat... More

It's a large resort with many pools, new addition is a waterslide, lots of kids, a gym in the center of resort, if you don't book a oceanfront room, you will have uphill walking, not recommended for anyone with mobility issues. All the lobbies are up on the upgrade to get free wifi, sometimes its a hit and miss. For... More

I was hesitant to book this resort after reading many reviews, but I am so glad that I did. My husband and I had one of the best weeks of our lives!

We stayed two weeks and the infinity pool was close to our room and we enjoyed spending time there. After the first week they closed it due to a decrees in tourists. That was very disappointing and made the other pools crowded. Lots of stairs to climb unless you get a room on the beach which can be noisy. Overall,... More

The resort is very large with many pools, so there is a lot of walking required. It is also 2 1/2 hours from the main airport. The food was not great, the same desserts at almost every restaurants.

If you are planning to do your wedding at this place or anybody you know you should read this. They sell a wedding package, setting expectations that they would never be able to achieve.
