Atravelerstales stayed here on Jul 16, 2007 during their trip titled: Kadoch Family Reunion.
For our (near the end ) of the trip relaxation part of the trip we were off to the¨Playa Blanca Resort, about 2 hours west of PC on the Pacific coast. We had transfers included and a car came for us and drove just us. The driver spoke less English than I do Spanish so it was a quiet trip that way. Good service! The Interamerican Highway is the big …
... deaf who may have little to no education and very little socialization, there is an earnest interest in spiritual things above all else.
This week we have the added bonus of the Circuit Overseer's visit and I am learning allot from their teaching techniques. How privileged we are to have qualified and experienced brothers taking the lead and equipping us to be better ministers. ...
... is tremendous cost as most individuals work for $15/ per day. Still, faithful young Edison comes by himself, week after week, month after month, and I can only imagine how pleased Jehovah is to see his effort. The next time a bible student won't come to the meeting unless they get driven to and from, I hope this sheds some light on the importance of an individual commitment to meeting ...
... business, it is these poor country farmers who are just trying to make ends meet.
Later the same day, we attended the LSP ( Lenguaje de Señas Panama/ Panamanian Sign Language) meeting, where Leah commented and I gave a talk. My theme was: "In What Ways Can Our Eyes Mislead Us?" taken from Gen. 3:2-6. I apologize in advance for the awkward faces I am making as sign language, while a beautiful language, isn't always an attractive one......

Historical Traveler Reviews Playa Blanca Hotel & Resort Farallon
the resort is very clean, and spacious, pools are great, lots of room on the beach, and around the pools. the food we found was very good in all of the 4 places you can eat. the staff where very good in all aspects of the resort. friendly and very kind and went out of there way to make sure you are enjoying your time. melanie our air transat representative was excellent. we went on the panama express with the train ride which was very good. also took the sunset cruise on the sail boat which was excellent especially if you have never been on a sailboat. rooms where a good size with lots of room. we had a view of the beach and ocean which was very nice. lots of hot water and excellent cleaning staff. we have been to quite a few countries in the carribean and this is the first time that we did not have to take a imodium. water is drinkable and they also had bottled water in your room, and also every building had a ice machine. drinks where good and not shy of the rum or whatever you wanted. we where very happy that we booked this resort after hearing problems people had at the decameron. it was a very relaxing resort with very good staff. we where ther the week of feb 14 2005. i would recomend this resort to people especially if you want a smaller resort that is not over crowded. never had any problems of being packed for any of the meals. yes we would go back to barcelo and we will, maybe go back again next year. very happy with our resort and the weather was wonderful, 95 degrees every day!!!
We stayed at the Barcello from Jan 24- Feb 7th and had great weather for the 2 weeks. The occasional day of clouds were welcome due to the extremley hot sun!!! We were located in Bld 6 and had some hot water issues or shall we say lack of hot water, this happened about 6 or 7 times during our 2 weeks. We did talk to other people who had hot water the whole time so we think it just depends on the Building.
The hotel and resort was great, like the other reviews I was a little dissapointed with the lack of chairs and shade available. The rooms, staff and food were excellent. The resort is very quiet and quite relaxing.
The hotel itself is nice and clean the staff are excellent ..
if i have to complain it would be the distance from the airport to the hotel.. (which is very secluded) is 2hrs and the buses are not the greatest. Also the 2hr run is a pain if u want to do any excursions off of the resort or head out for an evening. THIS NOT A PLACE TO GO IF U WANT A PARTY.
The food was amazing , best i have had at an all inclusive and this is probably my tenth one.
Being that this hotel is new there is still some work to be done ,, although the grounds are well kept.
Would i go to Barcelo again NO.
But if i had a wife and 3 kids I would.
Also remember u are not on the caribbean side of the ocean , so there is no light blue ocean and white sand.
Hotel itself is really nice, clean rooms, superb service, good food, a lot of people I've talked to enjoyed it but would not return for 2 weeks since the Hotel is very secluded.
Nice and secluded on the Pacific side of Panama. The trip from Tekumen airport takes about 2 hours but the trip is worthed through the city of Panama over the canal and westward to Rarallon. The nearest city is Penenome about 20 minutes where one can buy some trinkets, not much as far as local art.
I am a picky traveller,so I think this review will be helpful for those type of people who like perfection on their vacation,especially when they are byuing 5*.
Absolutely no complaints! Great staff, great food, spotless rooms.
Excellent. I had the best time ever.
Superb hotel. Great food and lots of drinks. The best wet bar and pools. Friendly service; they make sure that you'll have the best time of your life. Highly recommended!!
We where there Jan 2004 and we had no complaints there was four couples and they gave us rooms all on one floor. Rooms very clean. food excellent service was top notch. The only thing I could maybe say the night time shows need some more work but being a new resort they will improve.
If you want a nice holiday give it a try we really enjoyed ourself. Great deep sea fishing the guys caught 11 fish and the chef cooked it up for our dinner that night.
