We traveled over the Christmas break with our 10 year old daughter to Panama...and landed on Christmas day at Casa Sucre. What a home away from home! There can not be kinder and more generous people than Alyce and Rich. From the moment we arrived, we felt like family, but also had the privacy of a beautiful 2 bedroom suite. That being said, we spent most of our time at Casa Sucre in the common living room, sitting beneath the beautiful Christmas tree and making new friends with the other guests. Ibisha, the resident pup, was a fast friend to our daughter. We spent Christmas dinner with another couple staying at the hotel and it was one of the best Christmas dinners I have ever had. Alyce had a beautifully wrapped present at each of our place settings....wine for the guys, locally handcrafted necklaces and earring for us ladies and a delicate ceramic butterfly figurine for our daughter. We were speachless. It was so unexpected....so giving....so Alyce.
The location in Casco Viejo is excellent-- right in the heart of the sights, but a world away inside. It is directly across from Trantalo ( the roof top bar and tapas restaurant)...very yummy and AMAZING roof top views!... which can get noisy on a weekend night. Earplugs are provided, but there is really no sound proofing. However, I am a very light sleeper -- and had no issues and did not need the earplugs at all.
It is so amazing to see the remodeled buildings neighboring the delapidated ones. It makes you realize what pioneers Alyce and Rich are to have bravely begun one of the very first renovation projects. They are so dedicated to breathing new life into an area that has SO much potential. They are also opening a coffee shop this month (Jan) which should be a great success.
If you want to see the "real" Panama City...come here to Casa Sucre in Casco Viejo. It is a world away from the high rise hotels. Yes, there is no pool...but you will drowned your senses in authenticity.
