    First trip to Panama City beaches....not worth it!

    Was one of the most expensive hotels we stayed in during our five week trip to Panama. Overpriced. Included Breakfast was only toast and coffee. Expensive food so we walked over to Manglar Lodge, other end of parking lot, for our dinners. Great menu, food, atmosphere, owners. Our room at Bay View was very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool especially with children. But the chemicals were not correct or not used and our daughters hair turned green after just a couple swims. Fine location and views from the dining area and lobby. Easy access to beach. No surf at all the three days we were there. Renting boards very expensive. If you want to learn to surf , we suggest play venao or Santa Catalina. Fork out the extra money and go west a bit more.

    Nice resort right on beach

    Resort was pleasant and beach nice. Swimming pool as well. Meals were expensive and they would not honour jubelates discount for senior tourists . Wait staff was excellent and tried very hard to speak English with us. We enjoyed our stay.
