Best Things Nearby:
The beach, the golf course, and El Valle were the best things.

Best Things About the Resort:
The beach was wonderful; the all-inclusive deal was quite good considering the price; and the pool and grounds were great.

Resort Experience:
The Royal Decameron is about 80 miles from Panama City. It is on the beach at Playa Blanca. The beach is a great beach. The resort is quite huge, with five restaurants, several bars, a casino, an activity center, a spa, and a huge pool. There are numerous buildings, which are mostly three stories tall. Most units face the beach and have a balcony. The units are hotel rooms, and the resort has an all-inclusive deal that costs an extra $30 per person per day.

The resort staff was excellent. The food was fairly good for an all-inclusive. There were five restaurants (Japanese, steak, seafood, Thai and Mediterranean) in addition to two buffet restaurants.

There was a relatively small casino and a gold course next to the resort. The golf course is new and has only nine holes completed. It will be quite nice when it is completed, but that will be several years away.

The only complaint I had concerned the activities. There were numerous ones offered, but they never seemed to happen because the boat was broken down. There was a Vegas-type show in the every evening, which was okay, and they had a small band playing at one of the bars. This band was super.
