The hotel was very beautiful. The receptionist was not very helpful and we had no hot water the first night of our stay.There is no coffee maker, hair dryer or iron/ironing board available in the room. The room was big, but sparsely furnished. Bed was comfortable, but we got little sleep. The area is very noisy. When we arrived there... More

Hotel is excellent, clean, new, very good food at th restaurant. Staff is kind and attentive. Stayed for work only 1 night, twice. Only observation is the price: it is expensive for what you get. However, i believe it is the best hotel in town: small and cozy.

I stopped here with my parents and sister for one night while driving from Panama City to Boquete. Staff is very friendly, but not much English is spoken here. We still got by with our very broken Spanish. Room was clean and very comfortable bed; nice big hammock with a view of the pool and air conditioning. We ate at... More

Rooms were clean and the woman at the front desk was nice, however, we were there on New Year's Eve and the restaurant was closed for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. We were not aware this would be the case, and ended up having to drive to another hotel on the outskirts of Santiago as it was the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here during our trip to Panama last spring and had an overall fantastic experience. The room was spacious, clean and up to date. Hotel utilities are clean and taken care of. Staff is nice and helpful. We recall one incident with the lady in the pool bar who was too busy talking on the phone... More

Great hotel. Centrally located, just off the pan american. The rooms are big and comfortable, very spacious, clean and quiet. You room had two oversized queen beds, along with a nice couch and coffee table and bar fridge. Swimming pool is great, with a swim up bar in a little courtyard. This was the first stop once our bags were... More

A friend recommended that I go to the restaurant here. Not only was the staff kind and helpful, the food was cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend coming here. The chef came out to greet us and was very kind. Good prices for great food. It's a hidden gem

We ended up at this hotel because the Mykanos, the other hotel in Santiago we had booked and checked into had no water ? Perhaps it is because they knew we had no choice at 9:00 pm so the room they gave us, which was not cheap, was very badly designed. There was a refrigerator in the corner which was... More

Stopped at the Grand Hotel David in Santiago on our way back to Boquete. Don't let the busses and traffic on the interamericana throw you off. Very nice hotel, great rooms, very comfortable beds, wonderful shower, coldAC and extremely helpful staff. We decided to eat in the restaurant. This was a great choice! After 3 days at the beach and... More

We attended a wedding in Santiago and the reception was held at the hotel. Very well organized and friendly, courteous staff. We had a ground floor room, handicapped accessible and found it very clean and comfortable. Good room rate and senior citizen discount.
