Arrived to a broken sink and toilet. Had a dinner of fair quality the first night. Setup spa appointment during 2nd day, for which no one was present at arrival. 2nd night dinner was poor at best, and waiter from 1st night came by our table and displayed pictures of his children, in hopes for an additional tip from the...

This is a great sprawling property about ten minutes from the airprot by car. We stayed in a deluxe room that was charmgin and theyhave a great pool and gym. It has character and charm that is different than staying at a huge chain hotel, with great prices. We stayed one night prior to flyign down to Panama, and wished... More

We only stayed here when our original plans fell through. With no access to internet, we based our decision on last minute availability and the guidebook recommendation. Thank goodness we only needed to stay one night. The place must have been grand in the past. It has large rooms for parties, a big swimming pool, and nice grounds. But it... More

Pleasant hotel in a peaceful environment. Easy to find and reach from the international airport. Good starting point for trips to the Northwest and West. Service uneven. Super swimming pool. Large rooms.

My boyfriend and I recently recently spent 5 days at Hotel Martino. The staff was unbelievable friendly and went above and beyond to try to accomodate our needs. They set up day tours and even a private day tour. Everyone was so nice to be around. The rooms were comfortable and the grounds were very nice. Pool was excellent. Great... More

Having read a few of the more recent reviews we were apprehensive about our stay at the Martino. The hotel is approximately 10-15 minutes from the airport which is wonderful for weary travelers! We found the hotel to be charming and clean; the staff was knowledgeable, attentive and helpful; the restaurant food was delicious! Mornings started with coffee on our... More
