Planning our lodging for our Panama Trip I knew I wanted to be in the Historical Section of Panama City. We decided on a different place to sleep, so I will write a review for that later... But the Roof Top Bar here at Tantalo drew us in... Great music, space, views, accommodating employees.

The ambiance in the restaurant/kitchen is amazing and vibrant. There was a wide variety of food to choose from on the menu and everything we tried was great. Service was prompt and friendly as well. By the way, it's in a great location if you want to have dinner and perhaps take a walk and have drinks elsewhere. The view... More

Great location near history, shops, restaurants and great running-biking on a coastal paved path. Couldn't sleep at all though because apartments next door had two dogs on balcony that barked all night- about 15 feet from my room.

We stayed at two different hotels while in Panama City. This hotel was by far the better one. The location was PERFECT. The restaurant was amazing! We at several of our meals there. The rooftop bar was perfection. We loved our room so much. It was huge and the bed was very comfy. We only had an issue with our... More

Dinner was good and served promptly. seats were not the most comfortable but the scenery and the cool evening air made up for this. The bar was right there and quiet busy suggesting the drinks were good. clientele was generally upscale

This place is definitely something different. We stayed for one night prior to leaving Panama City. The rooftop bar was spectacular. Beautiful in all aspects. Lunch was fresh. The clam chowder was superb. We will definitely be back.

Stayed on a Sunday night when they offered a cheaper rate...$110. Bar on the roof was still noisy as others have said...but it calmed down earlier than on other nights as others have complained. View from the bar across the bay to the city skyline is worth a visit. Food was tapas-like and good. Room was spacious. Problem with my... More

I stay only one night and i enjoy a lot. Fantastic staff, amazing view and party from the rooftop. If you want long nights sleep this is not the place, if you want to have fun this is the place to go. Very close to several restaurants and monuments in casco antiguo

I stayed here for two nights with a friend to explore Panama City. It's in the heart of Casa Viejo, which is Panama City's colonial area and a UNESCO heritage sight. Plenty of fantastic dining/drinking/(tourist) shopping is in the direct vicinity. It's a great introduction and jumping off point to the city. My general travel preference is to get around... More
