We spent two nights here as part of an OAT tour of Panama. The stay followed 2 nights in a fairly primitive eco-lodge, so arriving at the Gamboa was a like a slice of paradise. Our room was in the tower section, 6th floor, with a breathtaking view of the river and hotel grounds. The room was spacious and well appointed. If you go here, be sure to insist on the main hotel, not the villas. The villas are quite dated and in need of restoration but the hotel is very lovely. No one in our group of 20 had a single complaint, exceept we would have liked to stay longer. We ate twice in the more casual restaurant and found the menu to be varied and intersting. The food and service were fine. Be aware that in many places in Panama, a 10% tip is automatically included in the bill.
