The hotel is next to the airport and offers a complimentary shuttle.
I decided to stay here as I had an early morning flight out of Panama and the traffic in Panama is very bad due to all the construction works going on.
I checked in after 10pm - no queues at this time - and got a room on the ground floor.
Upon entering my room, I figured out that the walls are very thin - the neighbours had small children and I was hoping that the fiesta would end soon.
The room looked a bit worn out - dirty carpets; dirty wall. A small smelly minibar (empty).
11pm; 11.30 - but next door the familiy was still discussing private matters.
Around midnight I decided to take my free drink at the poolbar which luckily was still open - a cold beer tastes always well - and if it´s for free, it tasts even better.
When I got back to my room, neighbour´s TV was still playing - but luckily I was so tired that I felt asleep.
Next morning - everything quiet. Except the neighbour´s TV.
I decided to check out the gym which had an disgusting smell - probably due to the high humidity in Panama. The ceiling was very low - too low for tall people.
The range of equipment is very limited; some broken - see picture.
Better than nothing - but far under expectations.
Next, I went for a quick swim - the water in the pool just had the right temperature.
A nice pool - in a tropical environment. I enjoyed.
Then I went for breakfast: buffet! Some fruits, bread etc. - basic, but OK.
Summary: Kick out the architect who made/designed the walls!!!!
