Luxurious accommodations boast partial or full ocean views – you might even catch a glimpse of a ship pulling through the Panama Canal. The pristine beach is accented with an extraordinary rainforest backdrop. Panama City is a bustling city filled with shopping and history and only a short drive from the resort.

Reservations are not required at their eight (8) restaurants, including four à la carte restaurants, a buffet, a grill and a café. Enjoy limitless cocktails and fine spirits at their four bars and lounges, including a pool bar with ocean views and a swim-up bar.
