The hotel and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous!!! There is a beautiful lake that was visible from our room. STUNNING!!!!!!!!!
The major downfall for this resort was the fact that it was quite far from anything! The city of Colon is so dangerous (it is about 30 min by car) that the Lonely Planet guide says not even to go there during the day.
Getting to the resort was horrendous; had to have a police escort from Panama City airport as a matter of fact. The police almost forced us to follow them from the airport. It was not a pleasant experience.
If you are interested in sticking to tours and relaxing at the Melia, this is the place for you. If you want some excitement, go somewhere else... outside of Panama!!!!!
