SANTA CLARA, Panama - Travel Agent is on site in Panama for a press trip to SuperClubs Resorts' latest Latin American resort, Breezes Panama. We toured the 294-room resort this morning and are staying in room #2602, a Deluxe Ocean View room.
The resort has eight room categories, including four Luxury Ocean View Suites, the resort's top category. However, if your clients are looking for the most bang for their buck, recommend the Beach Front Junior rooms. There are eight of these and we were suprised to learn they are the cheapest rooms on the resort. They are located on the first floor and are just a short walk from the beach. The rooms are also located right next door to the best bar on the property. This is important since there is no room service.
The property's spa has four treatment rooms and outdoor massages will be available within the next two months or so. There are four restaurants, two of which require reservations and a dress code. According to Delano Miller, group sales manager for SuperClubs, the resort will most likely attract families since there is nothing else like this resort in South America.
During our current stay, the resort is completely booked. There is in fact a national holiday going on in Panama, so about 40 percent of the hotel is occupied by locals. The resort heavily caters to families with a Kids Club, a Teens Club and nanny service available for $10 per hour with reservations required 24 hours in advance. Travel Agent will be touring sites throughout Panama on Friday and Saturday, including the Panama Canal so look for additional updates.
