The location is both good and terrible: great to be away from Cuidad Central (Panama City Central) and close to Lake Gatun and the Locks, but a pain to go to restaurants or other touristy things in the City. The drive to/from the City took 2 hours one night due to a stalled truck in the 2-lane portion and traffic... at other times, it only took 25-45 minutes.
The property is nice, rooms are spacious and look nice, though not very clean. Bathrooms are quite nice. There is a small nature trail in the back with a limited butterfly enclosure, which is good for killing 15 minutes or so. Did not try the golf or driving range. The restaurant and included breakfast was pretty good and hotel typical, though a bit limited in choice.
We got a good rate through Expedia (cheaper than Radisson.com). Available wi-fi and computers worked well.
