The restaurant serves up an orgasmic seafood experience. Chef Alexander claims that when he cooks, he prepares the food with love. If you're ever in panama city, look up tantalos restaurant. You will not regret it. Excellent service, even better food.

Location is perfect and the hotel staff is stellar! Rooms are squeaky clean and large. Balcony a big plus. No question that the noise could be a problem for some, but this is the place to be in Panama City. Walking distance to all the sites in Casco Viejo, restaurants, small shops, the fish market and further afield...the new glistening... More

Went here on the recommendation of our hotel staff. Rooftop bar is definitely the happening place in town! Loud, nonstop techno/pop DJ driven music. Good appetizers, great views. Definitely the hip place for the younger crowd of Panama City

This is a great place to start the night with friends. First something to share with friends at the first floor (Mac and cheese with ships, pulled pork and ceviche)... Then move on to the rooftop for some drinks and party with one of the best views of the city!

No complaints - a cool hotel in a gorgeous, very safe area of Panama at a very reasonable price. We ate, drank and slept in the hotel purely because the offerings were all so good. The rooftop was a highlight of our trip. My partner was bothered by the noise from the roof, but I had to strain to hear... More

A little odd that you walk in through the restaurant with all your luggage to a tiny little desk to check in, but at least the restaurant is amazing and interesting to keep you preoccupied while you are waiting for them to check in. I smelled a really strong odor in the room when we came in, but I seemed... More

Our group of 9 were treated extremely well and enjoyed the magnificent dishes that were plentiful enough for everyone to share and taste them all. Suggest that everyone in your party order a starter and a main -- and sample as many as you can -- you won't be disappointed. Service was very good and prices reasonable. Reservations highly recommended... More

If you like bumping club music til 2a right above your room with no response from management, go getum! If you actually like to sleep at the place you paid )$150/nt, go elsewhere. Interesting art, ok free breakfast, clean, in a great location.

We're sorry to hear that an otherwise positive experience was blemished by excessive noise. We strongly demand our staff to always communicate clearly about the vibrance of this hotel and how different the experience can be compared to other less busy, quieter options in town. Thanks for reporting, be sure to know that we will take these comments into consideration,... More

Great location in Casco Viejo to everything. The room was huge! We stayed in room #5 on the corner, with a couple of small balconies and right over the entrance (and the coffee place across the way was convenient). Can't say enough of the hotel restaurant. OMG Delicious! Ate there a few times during our stay. When we arrived, we... More
