Best margaritas in Santiago. Enjoyed the unique, colorful decor. Great salsa (it is hard to find spicy food in Panama) and good coffee. A truly bilingual front desk staff would have been nice, but we should know more Spanish.

We reached to the restaurant around 4pm, and still we were served as a "dear customer". Someone came out of kitchen and could speak English. We ordered appetizer and bear. For sure, "Panama" is the best bear I've ever had. And guacamole was Mexican style, different from from what we have in Toronto. So make sure you ask for lemon!... More

Very nice unique hotel and casino. Everyone was friendly. Each room had it's own unique color, quite unusual. Nice pool, although we only watched as it was raining and there were thunder storms. You have to have their Margarita!

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. For dinner we had great Mexican food and the best margaritas I've ever had! My husband and I enjoyed swimming in the pool, watching karaoke in the casino, and made new friends. For breakfast I had a mochoccino and the freshest fruit salad. I love the decor! I can't wait to go... More

We stayed a night with a group and enjoyed the pool in afternoon. The food (we had dinner and breakfast) was excellent. Our room (double) was large with 2 double beds, table and chair. TV, like most, had only 1 English channel-for a while: After 7pm, no English at all. Wi Fi was fine. But this is typical in the... More

We drove through Santiago on our way to Boquete on a Sunday. We stopped at La Hacienda for lunch and liked the looks of the place. I spoke with the woman at the front desk about a room for the following Friday when we'd be driving back through Santiago on our way to Panama City. She gave us a quote... More

So my GF and I overnighted here on the want to Santa Catalina from Panama City. We just wanted a comfortable place to sleep at to break up our journey. We heard about this place from the guidebook and checked it out. Not bad and kind of fun actually. The hotel's Mexican theme, while a bit odd, was cleverly done... More

If you are travelling from Panama City to Western Panama region (i.e Boca Chica, David & Boquete) La Hacienda in Santiago is the perfect pit stop and about half way to your final destination. We didn't stay at this Inn/Hotel, but both coming and going, stopped in to have a much need bite and cool libation. Recommend the Mix Fajita's... More

It's quite a stretch of hard driving from Bocas del Toro to Panama City, but at about the half-way point is Santiago. Not much of a town, but La Hacienda Hotel is a welcome sight. Mexican style architecture and furnishings - very bright and welcoming. Nice outside pool area and a small water park next door. There is even a... More

At the end of a day of making stops on our way to Santiago, we stopped at La Hacienda. From an accommodation perspective, the rooms were clean with no concerns. The grounds were really pretty. They did a very nice job of making it look like a mexican hacienda, with true, mexican decor. Interestingly, they had a several items that... More
