We stayed 4 nights at Tantalo - it was a wonderful experience. The staff, particularly Antonio, were truly amazing, friendly and helpful. The rooms were great - we had one on the third floor and it was perfect. Bed was super comfortable and rooms are large and spacious. Great location in Casco Viejo - perfect location from which to explore... More

Casco is such a gorgeous place and Tantalo was the perfect spot to experience it from. The rooms are gorgeous. We had a few friends also staying and when we saw their accommodations realized each room is individually decorated and appointed. Bed was super cush, room really spacious, and furnishings beautiful. The staff couldn't have been more dedicated. It was... More

We loved it. The rooms are amazing – artsy and funky but not too crazy - great for a romantic couples trip. We’ve stayed two different nights. The balcony (from most rooms) lets you take in the amazingness that is Casco Viejo. I have been to Casco Viejo either for the day or night seven times and Tantalo is the... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable. The food is amazing, and the rooftop bar is very cool. It is definitely a young, hip scene. The beds were so comfortable, great rainforest shower head, and delicious drinks at the bar. It's in a great part of Old Panama in Casco Viejo so we were able to do a self-guided... More

Loved all of the art in this hotel. Great nightlife in the area but you don't need to leave the hotel for a great bar! Beds are super comfortable and great little balconies overlooking the city. The staff was amazing and super helpful!

We stayed at the Tantalo for 3 nights as part of a larger group and thoroughly enjoyed every moment there. The sheer effort and level of detail they've put into the design and decoration of this amazing space really shines through. This place has soul. The staff are so friendly and helpful (especially when compared to what I've found elsewhere... More

Ate brunch here with my family one day, & it was fantastic, all around. Hubs & I returned 3x more during the week at night for the rooftop bar. Amazing views, great service, & fair prices... The bar can get crowded on the weekend or when there is a private party in attendance, but it's still a nice place to... More

The review is for the restaurant only, as unfortunately stayed at a different hotel down the street from Tantalo. Next time we're in Panama City, we will definitely stay here, because if the food is any indication the hotel will not disappoint. We ate at this restaurant twice in 24 hours (we were only in Panama City for two nights),... More

Fantastic, authentic, delicious food. Quite a scene on Friday and Saturday nights. I highly recommend for anyone looking for delicious food downstairs followed by a great party up on the roof. Great music.
