Last Inspected: October 2012

Royal Decameron Beach Resort is a large all inclusive resort located approximately 1 1/2 hours from Tocumen International Airport.  This large sprawling all inclusive resort is located on the beach in the Farallon area, Playa Blanca.  This area of Panama offers less rain and more sunshine than any other area of the country making it very popular at all times of the year.

This is one of the top budget inclusive resorts with a lot to offer at a bargain price.  The resort is made up of a main resort area consisting of 852 rooms located in 3-storey buildings.  Because it is a large al inclusive resort, you have a number of lobbies which are used to check in guests staying at different areas of the resort.  The resort including the golf course, casino and disco are available to everyone.

​All Inclusive Resorts Accommodations:

Rooms are located in the Hotel section, Ocean View, Beachfront or Golf section.  Golf section rooms are located across the street from the resort surrounded by golf course. Superior rooms in the golf section are second floor rooms.  All rooms include the main resorts all-inclusive package.

This resort being sprawling and also multi level, it’s important to choose your rooms based on location as well as views.  Ocean Front rooms are located on the lower level just a short walk from the pools, beach and restaurants.  Ocean View and Garden View rooms are located up the hill.  Superior Rooms are located in the new section with ocean views.  Villas are located on the golf course, not in the main resort area.

The rooms are not fancy; they’re basic with either a king bed or two doubles and a sofa bed.  The rooms are rather tight quarters - basic but good.  Balconies are furnished.  Rooms are adjoining which is a bonus for families but are not very sound proof.

All Inclusive Resorts Activities:

Royal Decameron has tons of activities available for all ages.  There are 8 pools including some for adults, some for children and some for both.  The 18-hole golf course is extremely popular offering guests very inexpensive golf year round.  For $60 per round you can enjoy an amazing golf course just minutes from your room. 

All Inclusive Resorts details:

Royal Decameron offers guests 11 bars and 10 restaurants, 8 of which are a la carte dining.

The Royal Decameron all-inclusive package includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, unlimited domestic alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages, daily activity programs, nightly entertainment, non-motorized water sports, introductory scuba lesson in the pool, tennis, beach volleyball, children’s activities, entry to the disco including drinks, taxes & tips.

I have mixed opinions of this resort.  I don’t normally prefer large mega resorts so that is a disadvantage to me. But, I do love the beach.  The beach did it for me - it’s long and wide and the views are great.  It’s a toss up whether to take a lower level room and be able to walk conveniently to everything or take an up-the-hill location and be more away from everyone.  This isn’t a resort for anyone having difficulty getting around.  There’s a lot of walking although there is a shuttle that helps you get around the resort. If you’re a golfer, this is a great option.  There’s lots to do for the family and you can golf so near by very inexpensively.  Remember though, the accommodations are standard so you have to manage your expectations and not be looking for above average or luxury accommodations - except for the golf villas.  The buffets can be crazy as the restaurants are busy and there’s lots of people but the a la carte dining is fine.
