This is my go-to hotel for a Panama City break. The hotel is extremely accommodating. This time, we flew out of Trinidad and had a long lay-over in Panama before a return flight back to the US. The hotel was able to accommodate us for a one-night stay (arrived at 8:00 am and departed at 4:00 pm) and gave us breakfast on the morning of our arrival. Unfortunately, the weather was not at all cooperative so we didn't have a chance to use the wonderful pool but we still enjoyed our stay. This time, our room was on the 31st floor with a wonderful view of the distant bay. Cannot believe how quickly Panama is growing!!!!
What I noticed this time, however, was that the closer one got to 10:30 AM, the more meager food at the buffet became. Also, the outdoor servers were less than accommodating...possibly because the hotel was super-crowded and chairs were at a premium. Sitting outdoors eating breakfast and looking at the foliage and the pool has always been a highlight of our trip, so in my mind outdoor seating is a must. Check-in staff and lounge staff were wonderful! Only wish we could have stayed longer.
