The main attractions of this lavish resort are its 9-hole golf course and luxury spa. The property itself is set inside a gated community where Panama's wealthy zip around on golf carts and reside in Spanish villas that resemble the hotel. Rooms have a patio overlooking either the river or fairway and are built around ponds and a replica of a 17th-century Spanish pueblo. Less extravagant than the lobby, rooms have dark furnishings, tile floors, flat-screen TVs, and ceiling fans. All the expected amenities are available, as well as a few extras including a beauty center, indoor pool, steam room, and racquetball court. Sabor Escondido, one of the resort's two restaurants, is by reservation only, and the dress code (collared shirts only) is strictly enforced.
