“La Jacana Restaurant at Radisson Summit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

On my recent trip to Panama, 5 stopped by the Radisson Summit Hotel for lunch, after a day trip to visit Gamboa. I was pleasantly surprised at the amenities and layout of the hotel lobby, reception and staff. Now about the dining experience at the La Jacana Restaurant. The menu offered a large selection of local and international dishes. I chose the Sea Bass which was served with a superb sauce, fresh asparagus nicely done, not overcooked, green plantain prepared similar to a potato latke (really good) and name (Caribbean yam) in a light tomato sauce. We asked to see the cook, who turned out to be a gracious young man, and congratulated him on the meal. Our server was also very attentive and it was an overall very enjoyable dining experience

The way we were received at the reception was friendly and efficient and included a welcome drink. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was very comfortable and the view magnificant.
The breakfast buffet was compleet and delicious.
We wakled around on the grounds and saw all kinds of birds and butterrflies and we able to rake some beautiful pictures.
Overall the staff is friendly, the public areas nicely decorated with comfortable seating and the swimming pool area great. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay.

I literally just stayed here and checked out, bummed out by the fact that I couldn't even get some shut eye (sleep) due to the very loud wedding party by the pool last night that went Til 2 am. management didn't even warn guests about this and let this insanely loud party continue on Til dawn ( they could have at least moved us to the other side if the tower -_-) in addition to this huge disappointment, the restaurant like other reviews have mentioned is a total joke. it took about 1 hour for our food to come whereas other native individuals who arrived later than us were served course after course while we waited, mind you my family of 2 exhausted adults and children. what really made me upset was when I asked a waitress about our food and she completely blew me off even after I took the pain of asking her in her native language and yet she totally walked away asking me what I was waiting for in a sarcastic tone. thankfully a waiter named Adolfo tried to help us and got our food, which was cold and bland, except for the mariscos pasta. I feel that I deserve to get a refund for the sleepless night I had. I really considered giving this hotel another chance after my cruise b/c the rooms were nice,spacious, and clean as well as the location which was scenic, but no way Jose! Not with the treatment my family and I received. Definitely not living up to Radisson's American standard of service!):

This was a business trip but the ambiance of this hotel was so tranquil and refreshing that I didn't mind working at all. Excellent views from comfortable well appointed rooms. Beautiful and refreshing pool area. Staff were professional but friendly and the service was excellent.

My wife and I were first time visitors to Panama and stayed at the hotel for several days. We were glad that we chose to stay outside the city. It is easy from this hotel to drive to other locations in more rural areas of Panama without having to go through city traffic of Panama City.

The Pros: Very Comfortable, Beautiful views of the rain forest on the golf side of the hotel. Attentive management and reception staff that go out of their way to make you feel at home and are quick to help with whatever you need. Beautiful environment. Nice Pools.

The Could Be Betters:
We had to eat on the "bar side" the first night because of a private group reserving the buffet side. Once was enough. My "house special" burger was served on a stale roll and the food in general was disappointing.

The breakfast buffet had a good selection, plus omelettes made to order but after several days the hot food items were mostly the same every day with a few exceptions. The restaurant staff started out very attentive but as the days progressed their service and their attitudes got worse with the exception of the girl cooking to order, whose service was super.

Overall there is a lot to like with a few minor irritations. We are glad we stayed there and recommend this hotel. Be aware that it takes a few minutes to get into the city and if you are taking taxis, you will be paying quite a bit for transportation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We enjoyed our two night stay last week at this Radisson property! The front desk staff and restaurant staff are so warm & friendly.....Especially Genia in the Ala Carte Restaurant!!! The room was spacious, super clean & had a very comfortable bed! The pool areas are tranquil with very luxurious padded lounge chairs!

We stood in the hotel as a carnival alternative. It's simply fantastic that being 20 mins away from the city, you fell like being in a separate world. Hotel accomodations are very good. Staff attention is great! Everyone tried their best to help and fullfill our needs. The food was very good and varied.
Additional entertainment (other than pool) like walking trails and butterfly watching also helped... but the one that is really worth mentioning was the golf class (included). Now I see golf channel with a different respect for the sport.
One minor detail is related to the quality of the TV signal and the panel to connect additional devices (hdmi, component video, etc..), because traveling with children these days means carrying some electronic gadgets with you (wii, PS3, etc..), and I had to call in the maintenance guys to take away the TV in order to plug-in the devices, cause the external panel didn't work.
