Stayed here one night prior to a cruise. Right in downtown area. I didn't think much of the outside of the hotel on our approach but once inside the lobby everything was first class. The check in was fast and very friendly. Free wi-fi worked beautifully. Our room, in the Executive Tower, was bright, very large, could have held a... More

- Very nice hotel. Great service. - Pool, long enough for laps. Water was too sour (PH needs to be adjusted). - Delicious food. - The room was clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable!

Our last two days in Panama were spent at the Bristol. Although the lobby decor is a little bland for my taste, I found the same color palette in the junior suite to be calming and relaxing. The King sized bed was comfortable beyond measure and expectations! We loved the service, the helpfulness of the front desk staff and housekeepers... More

We were in a group of 8 and stayed several nights. The hotel has all the modern amenities, comfortable and clean rooms and a courteous and helpful staff. They went out of the way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. They have an excellent rooftop bar, that is out of the way. The restaurant has wonderful food. The only... More

This is the third time I write a review. The last two were taken down although I was within the rules and regulations. So here we go one more time. They stole things from my room. There was a huge leak that ran through the closet, resulting in damaged clothing items (very expensive, designer items) The people working there are... More

To say this is truly a luxury hotel is not doing it justice. The property itself is in a good area, it is quiet (as opposed to some of the hotels in the area with casinos), the rooms are large and well appointed (with a lot of outlets, which is imperative for us, as we both travel with phones and...

We really enjoyed staying here! The room was beautiful modern and the beds very incredibly comfortable. The staff was very helpful with all our questions and concerns. The only negative was the tiny pool area.

I've stayed at the Bristol Panama a few times now and each time it has been a good or great stay all around. Six months ago I complained about the internet being too slow for video chat and they have fixed that a while ago. I made several VoIP and video chat calls during my stay and connection quality was... More

I think it has it all. Great comfort and quality, good location and excellent service. The fantastic food at the restaurant, makes it an attraction by itself, and the SPA is very professional. I stayed in the new tower and was impressed with the quality of the finishings and materials used for the rooms. Nice lounge and nice fitness center.... More
