This place is wonderful. It has a great vibe, the food is great, the service is top-notch, and the views are incredible. I recommend it without any reservation. If you are in panama City, visit Tantalo. Be sure to head up to the Roofbar!

We spent a week in Panama City at the end of December/early January. We enjoyed our stay at Tantalo Hotel. We had a spacious corner room on the 2nd floor. It had a sitting area, 3 small balconies, and a nice firm bed with good linens. We enjoyed the roof top bar (we always went early for the sunset and... More

Great spot. Stayed at hotel. Each room is unique. Great rooftop bar! Very cool place. Only set back would be that you could hear club music in your room if your going to be going to bed early. It's vacation! Just don't go to bed early. Have some wine and get your culture in!!!

I stayed here in October 2014 for 4 nights while visiting with a friend. My least favorite thing about traveling is trying to live out of a suit case in an often small space and hoping that I get decent enough sleep... I didn't have any of these problems while staying at the Tantalo! The rooms are so spacious, the... More

This is a great place to have a drink in the old city. The views are lovely and the drinks are great. There is a busy resto bar on the main floor -- but for a romantic farewell to Panama, there is no better place to be.

Tantalo is not a hotel. It is a club. A rather popular and loud club. Upon arrival, we discovered that there is no "lobby," but rather a restaurant and bar with a cashier who has a dual function as a concierge and receptionist. No one helped us with our bags or greeted us. Not a huge deal, but set the... More

We had the greatest time at the New Years Eve party at the Tantalo roof top! Good drinks and bartenders, good music, best view accompanied with good party people! Best place in Panama City in our opinion!

Beautiful bar downstairs...amazing to look at a cool crowd. Didnt love the liquor price or the bartenders service towards the end of the night on sat. Went back to the rooftop for Sunday a'noon sunset where they had a barbque going and live DJ...what an experience...a must see/do event if you're there. Top class.

The bfast is FANTASTIC, ive had many free bfast around the world and this is in my top 3! Roof top bar is WOW, afternoon and night view of the city is... More

Really lovely hotel in the heart of the old part of Panama city, Casco Viejo. We stayed twice on a recent trip on our way in and out of Panama. The rooms are huge and original and the staff are all really friendly and helpful. If you want a good nights sleep then avoid the weekend as the rooftop bar... More
