“Surprisingly modern for middle of Panama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The hotel was modern, the service very friendly and professional. There is always lots of staff available. service is timely. Almost everyone spoke english.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable with nice floor to ceiling windows. The bathrooms are the same standard as a 3 star new hotel in North America. Parking is included should you have a car.

There is an attached restaurant which we did not get to try. Breakfast is included and is extensive and delicious.

Try took at least 2 weeks ahead for a discounted rate ( 90 instead do 110 )

Great hotel for travelers as a pit stop to final destination.

I checked in this morning after my endless midnight bus from Panama. I did not have a reservation and the staff welcomed me and I was able to get a room. They even let me check in at 0630. My accommodations are very nice.
The staff has already booked me to zip line tomorrow. And right now I am having a magnificent tasty lunch. I recommend totally

We only planned on spending 1 night, the hotel staff & facilities were just so nice we decided to stay over an extra night. From the minute we drove into the parking stucture it was a good experience, the security guard was very nice even with my Spanglish he tried to help and directed us to the lobby. The front desk staff was fantastic and spoke perfect English. Marilyn was so helpful and polite it was really nice. They gave us directions to a nice little place to eat close by. The room was very large with a King bed and well appointed, the bathroom was nice and fixtures appeared new. We had the breakfast buffet which was pretty good and had nice variety, and yes the staff spoke spanish but guess what it's "Panama". They were very pleasant and we got everything we needed The front desk again gave us directions and a map to the beach area also making sure we had the phone number to the hotel "in case we needed help". All in all I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: 6th floor is nice view all the way to Volcan & Boquete

From their people to their hotels are really nice. My boyfriend and I arrived at David City, a meticulously planned car trip from the neighboring country, Costa Rica. (Manuel Antonio). experience like no other, and also! nothing more and nothing less than beautiful smiles received from the Panamanians, warm weather and delicious local cuisine. I promise you will definitely worthwhile. All very clean, affordable prices, timely service, among others. / :)

This hotel is located in the center of David. The rooms where big but the bed was a queen for a regular room. That's small for 2 people! The bathroom was nice and big too with a nice shower. Very modern and clean! The resturant and breakfast was ok. If you plan on going to this area this is your best bet but it is not a 5 star hotel. It is a 4 star hotel!
