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

If you add up amenities in a hotel, this is really the best option in Santiago de Veraguas. It quite modern, with ample and comfortable rooms. Nice pool area. Good air conditioning and TV. 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

Let's be frank here. Santiago is kind of a truck stop town. This place is a freaking oasis. That said, here are some details about our 1 night stay between bus rides. The common areas are absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The pool area is gorgeous -- hello swim-up bar! The rooms are nestled in outdoor hallways with gardens in between.... More

We decided to stop in Santiago for some visits to villages in the neighbourhood, and you can easily get to this hotel from where the Ciudad de Panamá-David coach lets you out. We hadn´t reserved and were offered an interesting price (52$ including wifi, use of a nice pool). The room was nicely decorated and it was the only time... More

I understand this is a fairly new hotel, and you can see that they had great Intensions ... But they miss on the small things. They used beautiful tile and stone for the bathroom vanity, but with the counter height vanity with a 6 inch tall sink set on the back of the counter, I had to stand on my... More

Excellent choice, close to everything. Nice bar- side pool, large rooms and bathroom. Clean. Restaurant staff work hard. Close to KFC & McDonalds where we ate for value. My guess is hotel food good but pricy. Well - ran place.

These beds were so comfortable. The room are very nice and they have a wonderful pool with swim up bar. The room are missing little things like ice bucket and full length mirror, etc... the money definately went into the mattresses.
