“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Very good experience, since i'm a harsh critic (being in the hospitality industry. People in general are very friendly with the exception of a few bad apples. Immigration officers need to smile when greeting/welcoming tourists into the country (also spoke very little english). It was rainy season, so showers here and there but not all day. Tours desk was not always available (had to call), but when she came (Omayra) she was helpful and greeted us on our return from the tour. Our tour guides Antonio of Inside Panama and Archie From Tecal Tours were awesome. Our shuttle driver to the mall (Luis) was prompt on dropping us off but not on picking us up (repeatedly told us to be there at 3pm, he never came until 3:45pm and offered no apology. There was no wash cloth in the bathroom, when inquired, Front desk agent stated they were only for Suites but would have some placed there...it was never done until we inquired with the Manager the next day. The room cleaning service could be improved, empty lotion and bath gel were never replaced always had to ask BUT full bottles of shampoo and conditioner were given even when not empty. Pillows on bed were removed but never replaced while making the bDining staff were great. Kudos to Yeniva and Adolfo and Daniluis. Bartender Pablo was awesome. They were ver prompt. Different selection of fresh foods each day. Our other shuttle driver Durango was great, personable and friendly and our golf instructor Manager Ricardo was superb.

Room Tip: Junior Suites are awesome....Golf view is excellent

Recently my sister and I visited Panama and stayed at the Radisson Summit Hotel and Golf, neither one of us are golfers but the price and amenities made it a logical choice. The staff are very welcoming and attentive and the free daily shuttle rides are a big plus given the remote location. It is a perfect getaway place!!!

Room Tip: Definitely pick a room facing the lush jungle!!

me and my family had a wonderful time in this hotel, the rooms were good, the location in the outside area of panama, was very convenient for us since we rent a car and we were able to travel to the rest of the country . the main highway is nearby, the location is the best if you want to avoid the traffic horrible experience of the city of panama, the city of colon is like 45 minutes, panama city 20 minutes etc, nice pool, the buffet breakfast is the best. 4 free computer in the lobby for use.

We came with 14 friends and stayed two nights with golf privileges and one without. We have a very good room, the breakfast was good with a lot of American type choices mixed with some typical Panamanian fare. Lunches were like wise. We did not have dinner there. The golf course was decent considering the season. A lot of repair work going on and much needed to be done to make it top notch.

Room Tip: Talk with the reps there about the purpose of your trip and you might get a discount for your group...

This was our 2nd visit to this Radisson Hotel. Like before the rooms were clean, large and very comfortable. We went with a group of 16 other friends from Boquete. Golf was included in the stay. Two of us were not golfers, so we enjoyed taking the free shuttle to Albrook Mall to shop. Breakfast was included. There was a large variety to chose from, our coffee cups always full,and the staff very pleasant. Will definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay. Being new to Panama, with little Spanish, we were so warmly greeted and happy to see that staff were eager to use their English. Thank goodness for us! We felt safe knowing there is a security station down at the gate by the road, checking everyone that arrives to the hotel.

Staff at the bar, the lobby, the registration and concierge desk were all extremely helpful.
Great price with a free breakfast included, which offered quite a variety and a cook who was right there to make you an omelette and had it delivered to our table. The pool was lovely. So was the exercise room, although I didn't use that room too much.

We used the Internet and were happy with its service. We found a few English-speaking channels on the television so this helped us relax a bit before bed. The views from our small balcony looked out over the rainforest with gorgeous views. We don't golf, so can't speak to that part of the hotel.

Beds were sooo comfortable, with lots of pillows. Bathrooms were a good size and came equipped with a hair dryer and some simple toiletries like lotion, shampoo, shower cap, etc.
I did not see an in-room safe though..wasn't a problem for us as we travel light and had nothing of value to put in a safe.

We like the people who were so kind and helpful, and that's what makes a place for us. We will be going back again in a few days. We appreciate all the help they provided in translating for us when we were dealing with locals to arrange for a rental car. So helpful and greatly appreciated! Then arranging for a free shuttle for us as well to get us to our rental car!

Note: Do not stay here if you like hustle and bustle...this is not for you. If you like a quiet hotel with a pool that you can pretty much have to yourself most days, as well as a quiet laid-back atmosphere, this is a great place to stay. Not too many people there when we were there, but it is likely not busy because it is low season.

We are here now. Almost the only guests in this large hotel. They maybe should work on keeping these few guests happy. Food is edible but over priced. Service... we were the only people in the restaurant with six staff standing around and nobody refilled the water glasses. The free shuttle to the Mira Flores locks isn't free. Drinks twice as expensive and half strength compared to Wyndham Hotel in the city. Mold and mildew everywhere and the don't vacuum...large hairball outside our door all week. I'm not sure why this place is on Fodors pick list.
