Our first stop in Panama after a red eye. Staff very very nice letting us check in early for a nap. Great view room. Very awesome breakfast !! The hotel needs lots of updates-you get what you pay for as far as luxury. But a Great price here Located with easy access to walk down the boardwalk. AC works great.... More

I'd avoid this hotel. The pictures look a lot nicer than the actual property. On top of that, I gave them a ton of laundry 2 days ago. Coincidentally, the only pieces of laundry not to return were my 2 Hugo Boss swimsuits. They deny ever receiving them, and have offered absolutely nothing to compensate. These things don't disappear by... More

We loved the hotel for its good location, spacious room, good amenities, outdoor pool and great views from the hotel room and terrace. We found it very relaxing just to chill out. The location is very good as its at the sea front corridor and also across the road from a shopping mall. The buffet food is good full of... More

Good: In Panama City there are two parts... the Casco Viejo (Old City) and connecting it is about a 45 minute walk (nice, but can be hot and humid...but it's safe) and on the other side (where Plaza Paitilla is) there is the new/modern city...they are literally two different worlds...which I think is awesome! My first time in Panama I... More

The room was extremely spacious and pretty. The lobby has a dining room and an awesome bar. The pool area is fantastic and so much bigger than the newer hotels have here in Panama. The frontdesk is very helpful and you even get a complimentary drink for every night you stay at the hotel. The breakfast selection is very ordinary... More

This hotel used to be the biggest building in Panama a couple of decades ago. The magic is still there. Very kind staff, clean and comfortable rooms with fantastic view. A nice Bar and Restaurant. Continental breakfast adequate. You have one mall crossing the street and the Ocean Strip besides. The price is fair for what you get. I recommend... More

Good hotel to stay in Panama City, good location, nice rooms, they just need to improve their customer service, but overall a nice place to stay to a reasonable price, booked through a hotel operation is cheaper

Our room was clean and comfortable, however the plumbing was very noisey. I was recovering from minor surgery so we had to order Room service, which was very disappointing. Slow to arrive, well after the 30 minutes that was quoted. Closer to a hour and everything was cold, and salads without any dressing. Check in and check out was done... More
