Nice lobby and bar area, the view of the pool was great. There were rooms facing the pool, and the rooms seemed to be quite nice viewing from the outside. We stayed in the tower at the back of the hotel. The room was spacious and quiet. The sleeping quality was good. Beyond that, that was not much to rave... More

As many have said, this hotel must have been good a long time ago! It got renovated but really cheaply, tiles are all chipped and it just doesn't feel clean. Only good part is the friendly service of the employees and a nice big pool. I certainly wouldn't pay much to stay here.

Overall, a reasonably priced hotel for business. Adequate in terms of breakfast and other facilities. The rooms are large, clean - was on a higher floor - good air and light. Bathroom tiling is fine but the tub and other amenities could use an upgrade. If you are here only on business, minimal time is spent in the room -... More

"okay" is the word use to sum up our experience. Basically just a place to sleep. Our room part was clean however the bathroom was dirty and there was a cockroach in the shower. The food is ok however did taste very salty and processed. The service was alright and they provided safety razors for shaving.

We chose to stay here purely based on the pool!! We could've got a cheaper rate including breakfast at the nearby crown plaza but glad we didn't, the pool area is THE best part of this hotel, they were painting the surrounding area whilst we were there but not intrusive. My biggest gripe is the wedding party that was in... More

I stayed at the El Panama during my vacation in July 2014. Although the lobby, dining rooms, and pool area were well maintained, the room I was given on the first floor was a big disappointment and certainly did not meet four star standards. It was extremely outdated with very old, dusty furniture and in fair to average condition. The... More

Spacious rooms, nice views either on the city (very nice view at night) or on the swimming pool. The bar and the restaurants are very nice. Helpful staff. The swimming pool is very nice. We go there every time and then, and it's always a nice experience.
