I was travelling through Panama's countryside and scheduled a one night stay at this excellent hotel. As you walk in, a spacious and open lobby welcomes you with a warm but fresh breeze coming from the plains around Santiago. Its rooms are all well furnished and tastefully decorated, fully equipped with AC and LCD TV sets. It boasts a large, beautiful pool with a swim-up bar. Food was nothing to write home about but its restaurant and bar were very clean and nice. I never expected a hotel of this level in a part of the country better known for simplicity.
