“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2006

We were offered a one night stay at the Radisson while we were staying at the Royal Decameron. We accepted the offer in order to break-up our travel time to the airport on departure day.

When we arrived at the Decapolis we found most staff spoke very good english and were more than willing to assist you in any way they could. The atomosphere was upbeat and upscale. The martini bar in the main lobby was amazing. The seating in the bar was also very inviting. The rooms were modern and comfortable. There was a comfortable thick duvet on each bed, which was a pleasant surprise.

The dinner at the restaurant was out of this world. Breakfast buffet was also good.

Because of the location of the Decapolis we were able to take a cab to the Canal and witness large boats passing through. I was very glad that we got the opportunity to see it. We used the cabs that were right at the hotel and a round trip for 4 people cost $40. We learned the next day that if you just stepped around the corner you could get the public cabs much cheaper, although it may have been safter (vehicle wise) doing it the way we did it. The cab driver for the quoted fee also took us throughout Panama City and showed us Old Panama where the pirates had invaded years and years ago, the yacht club, the city skyline and many other interesting sights.

The Majestic Casino is attached to the Decapolis and we spent some time there. Fun place to visit. the Multi Centre is also in the same area. This is apparently the largest Mall in Central America. It reminded me of the Eaton Centre. I wasn't on vacation to hit the mall so we just walked quickly through just to say we did it. Then we hit the Hard Rock Cafe for a live band and back to the Martini Bar.

Overall, a great experience.

My wife and I stayed at the Radisson Decapolis between Christmas and New Years. Have to say that the hotel was the highlight of our stay. In was an amazing time. We had planned on staying at the Melia near Colon for two nights but stayed only one and went running back to the Radisson. We travel frequently to all parts of the world and found this to be one of the best hotels we've stayed at. We were upgraded to a suite which had a fantastic view and was very spacious. The other highlights were the ultra-hip bar/lounge located in the lobby and the delicious breakfasts.

Location is close enough to walk to most restaurants (which may be a better bet than eating in the hotel). Taxis are very cheap too. Most rides in downtown are under two dollars.

Also visited (didn't stay there) the Gamboa resort. Very nice location but very isolated. Good for families not looking for the city action. Took the monkey island boat ride. Pretty cool.

Overall a great place if you are look for a young and fun crowd.

  • Liked — Modern decor and cleanliness
  • Tips/Secrets — Ck hotel's website and look for rate including drink credits. Ask about free airport transport.

This was my third stay in the last year or so at the Radisson Decapolis and I can't wait to go back. This has got to be my favorite hotel in the world.

Starting with the super cool lobby and martini bar, the pool, the restaurants and the rooms, I simply like everything about this place. I even tried the spa this time and got a wonderful haircut for 10$... simply amazing.

The best bang for the buck is certainly the 160$/night executive suite with breakfast included. The suite is huge and clean and has an Art Deco/Latin America/Austin Powers feel to it (I can't describe it any better).

On this particular trip, I made a lot of requests (USB cable, one night extension, champagne) and all were met with a smile.

If you go remember that this is a fairly poor country and that the staff makes less than 500$/month, so think that a smile, your best attempt at Spanish and a small tip will go a long way.

The only people I would not reccomend this place to are families. Panama City in general is not a very child-friendly place... you're better off at one of the beach resorts

One final tip: get a high floor ODD numbered room, that's the side with the best view of the Ocean. (thought the other side is OK too)

Hi
We stayed at this nice and modern looking hotel in May
One problem - it's full of prostitutes
I don't think they should be allowed on the property!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is very uncomfortable. I will not recommend this hotel
to married couples, couples with children/teens or
honeymooners...

We were expecting this hotel to be nicer. The room was just OK.....large though. Views were great. The food was average and found half of the staff absolutely rude. The location was good, pool pretty neat. All in all it didn't give us a great feeling of Panama for our first 2 nights there.
