I originally planned a vacation in Pueblo Nuevo, Panama. My family convinced me to go to Decameron for a”relaxing getaway”. It took us two hours to drive there, which wasn’t too bad. We waited about 30-45 minutes before we could check in. Apparently a number has to be given to each guest during the pre- check in to regulate crowd control. When our number was called, everyone was asked for the Panamanian ID number. Funny thing the rates are different for locals versus tourists. After providing my USA passport, the clerk looked disappointed that I had received the lower rate. We were registered in lobby 3. Lobby 1 is generally where American tourists would vacation.
After receiving a room, I quickly found out that food wasn’t available until 6:30pm. However the drinks were free flowing throughout the afternoon to evening. The buffet style food was great and there was a huge selection. I liked that the resort made a variety of selections available. Breakfast, lunch and the snack bar had the same variety.
The beach was breathtaking and the pools were warm. I enjoyed the evening night show and disco. Throughout my stay I couldn’t help but wonder if I would be surprised with a bill during the checkout process. I kept thinking how the resort could be making money. Eventually I found out that the resort advertises shares and aggressively solicits members. Nevertheless, I enjoyed myself very much. Decameron is not a place that I would like to frequent often, but I’m glad that I can say I’ve been there. It was definitely an experience.
We came there for my daughters wedding. It was disappointing that when we got there at
4:30 we were starving. We found out that there was no place to eat until 6:30
I always thought that inclusive hotels served
food at all times. All of the restaurants were booked so we had to eat at the buffet
which is not that good
I'M FROM PANAMA, I WENT TO MY COUNTRY LAST YEAR AFTER 11 YEARS AND I BEEN HEARING ABOUT THIS RESORT FOR 3 YEARS ALREADY AND I WENT WITH MY KIDS TO THE RESORT IT IS A NICE PLACE, THE FOOD IS GOOD,THE SERVICE IS NICE,THE ROOMS ARE BIG AND THE PRICE IS REALLY AFFORDABLE.
I'M TRAVELING TO PANAMA ON JUNE WITH MY SISTERS, NIECES AND NEPHEWS AND PART OF OUR
TRIP IS TO GO TO THE RESORT AGAIN.
I RECOMEND THIS RESORT TO EVERYBODY THAT STAY IN PANAMA.
Decameron is such an amazing place to vacation! My wife and I spent a week there and all I can say is wow! The facilities, although a bit dated were very clean and typical of all-exclusive hotels. The food was good and the service was top notch. The beach is beautiful and the nightly shows are entertaining. I really have nothing negative to say about our experience there. The weather was outstanding...it was raining in Panama City but when we arrived at Decameron...paradise!
There are a ton of activities to keep you busy during the day and free booze poolside!
We will go back for sure and are actually thinking about purchasing a home at the Costa Blanca Villas!
We can't wait to go back next year!
It was a beautiful place, great service and people. Had everything you needed on site. A lot of restaurants for different taste. Only thing was it was 2 1/2 hours from Panama City and the greatest shopping. The nightly shows were terrific. The spa, hard rock store and casino all great. Making plans for a return trip.
I loved everything, especially the cleanliness, the staff (gentle and very respectful).
The design of the facility has been well thoughtout. The food was especially good! The rooms very spacious!. The showers nice and big.
I would like to see more control on the smoking. Should be NO SMOKING in the lobies and eating establishments. Especially no smoking in the line-ups when waiting for bookings-buses etc.
We just got back Feb4/08.It was fantastic. The resort was extremely well kept and the staff were great. I can't say enough about bartenders Calvin,Edwin and George (couldn't pronounce his real name, so he suggested I call him George). The jungle boat tour was awesome as well as the Bubba Gump boat. I heard the rappelling was a riot as well. The only negative would be the bus ride to and from the airport 2 hours and no washroom.
Best place we have ever been.Good food,clean, beautiful grounds & pools.Harold Del La Cruz was an awesome bar tender.We can't say anything bad about this resort.We were there last 2 weeks of Jan./08 & perfect weather.Some people complain about the 2 hour drive from airport but we liked it as you get to see alot of the countryside & how other people live.We want to go back again in Jan./09. We can't wait.Most of the staff know how to speak enough english to get by.Lots of Canadians at this resort & they really cater to the Canadians with playing music in english that we all know.Nice gift shop,public phones,and internet cafe just a 5 minute walk from lobby 3.This is a good place to buy a phone card for $3.50 for 1 hour of air time to call home.Anyone who goes to this resort will have the best vacation of anywhere they have been so far.It was just amazing & we wish we could go back tomorrow!!!
