Oversold”

A tour guide suggested I take my wife to Playa Blanca for her birthday weekend. She loves the beach, so we were excited. The beach is the only thing we enjoyed. #1: The cafeteria for eating in between breakfast and dinner was awful. Chicken and pizza were left out so long that the skin and edges were hard. #2: The Japanese dining option was awful. We've been to Japan, and trust me when I say, a Japanese chef would've been ashamed to serve sushi rolls falling apart, with hard rice. #3: It is family oriented. There's nothing wrong with that, but there should've been a pool where adults did not have to suffer children splashing water and playing games. #4: "All inclusive" means there is a limited list of alcoholic beverages included. If you do not drink what's on the list, then tough luck. If that's not bad enough, the pool bar ran out of lime, that delimited the drink list even more. #5: You have to put your key card in a slot to turn on the lights, and your key is turned off the day you leave (before you even check out). #6: We had to ask for face cloths. I'm not sure if this is cultural to the area or not, but there were no face cloths when we arrived. Likewise there was no ice bucket (which is standard for most hotel rooms).

Ehhh”

I’ve stayed at quite a few Riu’s in different countries and this one is not on par with the other locations. I don’t know if it’s because of the pandemic or what, but the food was okay at best and the wine selection consisted of two options. Also, the traffic getting to the resort was unbelievable and that alone will deter me from visiting the resort or Panama again.
