Fodor's Review

Rooms in the upper floors of this stately resort are steps away from the beach, and have great views of a cascading series of pools and the glistening Pacific, but it suffers the service problems common to the country's all-inclusive resorts. The design of the resort's six-story building was inspired by the Tivoli Hotel, which was the Canal Zone's premier hotel in the early 20th century. Its well-equipped, spacious rooms have Juliet balconies with views of the pools, gardens,

and sea; only suites are on the beach. Public areas are attractive, but it is more compact than the other beach resorts. It has a tennis court, game room, kids club, gym, four restaurants, three bars, and a dance club.
