Royal Decameron Beach Resort, Golf and Casino Review

Panama's largest, and one of its most attractive, beach resort offers good deals outside of the peak season, but also the food and service problems typical of all-inclusive resorts. Its 852 rooms are in 50 four-story buildings scattered along 2 km of beach, amidst luxuriant grounds. They are bright and colorful, with large bathrooms and balconies, or terraces. Few have ocean views, so it's worth paying extra for one. The resort has an 18-hole golf course, nine pools, eight restaurants, 10 bars, a dance club, casino, game room, spa, gym, and legions of beach chairs. Meal options range from massive buffets to restaurants specializing in seafood, Japanese, Thai, or Italian cusine, but don't expect memorable meals. Free activities range from kayaking and tennis to volleyball, but golf, fishing, snorkeling and other tours are extra.
