We stayed at Playa Blanca November 21-28 2005. Had stayed at this resort when it was a Barcelo in March of 2003 for 2 weeks. The new management has made few changes if any that we could see. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food was good. There is only the buffet, one small enclosed restaurant with air conditioning...

Having been to Panama once before we went back to meet some friends from Argentina kind of half-way. We originally went for 10 days but stayed almost 3 weeks since some Argentines can’t tell when their twice weekly overbooked flight leaves. However it was cheaper to stay in Panama than buy a return ticket on Copa that has daily frequencies....

Just returned from the Playa Blanca resort on the 26th of September 2005. This was a great place to stay at a great price . Sandra, the guest services person, was extremely helpful and made us feel very special.

The price we paid from Toronto, given it9 was for X-mas, was not bad, though more than to Cuba. but since we cannot stand bad service and did not want Cuba any more, and also because we had absolutely loved the monkeys and parrots in Costa Rica during our previous trip, we had thought Panama would give us similar nature...

I stayed at the Barcelo from Jan 31- Feb 7th, 2005, on the ride to the resort the tour guide said there was lots of mangos and that everyone in Panama speaks english because it is mandatory in school.

I agree with other reviewers about the trip from the airport and Panama City being a pain but that does not reflect on the hotel. One reviewer complained about the shopping tour--again this should not reflect on the hotel as the tours are run by a separate company and they are shared with the Decameron down the road. We found...
