The hotel is clean and acceptable with beautiful garden courtyards. The pool is nice, but toward the end of the day it seems less than clean, but it gets cleaned daily I think, so do your swimming in the morning after it gets cleaned, before the young kids come out and take over the pool with water gun fights.

Hotel Gran David is a reasonably priced hotel with upscale amenities. Beautiful room, comfortable bed and beautifully appointed grounds, especially for Panama standards. I would have given it 5-stars but the room I had was facing the road and the road noise with the trucks air braking throughout the night was really loud. I'd pay the extra $20 to have... More

Tired, accidentally found this delightful hotel. It was so delightfully decorated and explicitly laid out and comfortable, stayed 2 days instead of the 1 night. Pool, restaurant and to top it off, massage! Saw tennis courts at the back and noted large meeting rooms. Large balconies overlooking the lovely pool and grounds, swim up bar, etc. only issue for me... More

Recently refurbished, Gran David is a modern and stylish hotel, with a good and helpfull staff. Excellent and wide room, Nice bathroom, really. Ask for a room with a balcony and a... More

Santiago de Veraguas is not Paris, that's for sure. It is a town on the way to Chiriquí Province and it is comfortable to stop if you do not want a long drive from Panama City. There is not much in this town and no first class restaurants. So staying at the Hotel Gran David is a treat, an oasis... More

I was only able to stay here one night as I was traveling with colleagues to Los Santos the next day to teach there, but I wish I could have stayed longer. The room was really excellent. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was elegant - a huge shower, excellent amenities. Clean, comfortable, and stylish too. We were there... More

This is a recently refurbished hotel, which brings back the small-town era of Santiago de Veraguas. The day we arrived it was raining, so we could not use the pool, apparently the have a bar poolside. They do not have a bar in the lobby or close to the restaurant. The rooms are comfortable, well air conditioned and with a... More

The restaurant is the best in the area, we had dinner and breakfast and enjoyed both. Very well located, I would recommend it for families as... More

A beautiful property with different options to suite every need. The hotel is centrally located, clean and comfortable. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rain showers are perfect at the end of the day. The restaurant is terrific and the bar was enjoyed by many. We will make our way back to Santiago... More
