“Just opened outside Santiago”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We stayed in this excellent hotel for one night on our way back to Panama City from Boquete. We did not have a reservation. The walk in price was the same as the hotel’s internet price, plus tax. And it included breakfast. Our room, decorated as the rest of the hotel in whites, and blues had a balcony overlooking the pool on the second floor. This is a new property. The room was brightly lit, very clean and everything was in working order. It was large with a queen-sized bed. The bathroom was large with an excellent shower. Lots of hot water! The pool was cool and refreshing – it was also very clean. The wind made sitting around somewhat uncomfortable though.

Breakfast was very good, buffet style with plenty of choice. Unfortunately the pancakes and potatoes were cold. The omelette was excellent. Fruit, yoghurt, meat and local foods made up the rest of the menu. For some reason there was no cereal.

Just a couple of annoyances. For a new hotel it was difficult to understand why there was no elevator to the second floor of the rooms. Luggage needs to be hand carried up the stairs to the second level. There was no milk for coffee at the breakfast buffet, only cream. The room did have a coffee maker and coffee but no decaf coffee. Our balcony had no chairs but a staff member did manage to get a couple so we could enjoy the balcony. The hotel’s website needs improving to add tax to the advertised amount and to list what comes with the price, such as free WiFi and breakfast. We did email the hotel before we arrived seeking clarification but there was no response. Our room had a safe but it was not attached to anything – not much use.

Overall though this hotel is highly recommended – new, on the Pan American highway, nice pool, landscaped gardens, big, bright and comfortable room, very clean and friendly staff with a good price.

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.

We stayed at this hotel while trekking through Panama. The hotel recently opened (about 2 months ago). Our room was beautiful. The gym, landscape and children’s play area under construction. Once the hotel is complete and they have the right staff with manners employed. This hotel has potential to be excellent. Our experience while staying at hotel was unpleasant with the exception of the front desk. She was very helpful at suggesting local restaurants and points of interest to visit. We decided to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant (big mistake). The host was appalled because we went through the front door to the restaurant and we did not enter the door that adjoined the restaurant from the hotel room side.WOW, really lady! When we were seated, many items on the menu were not served and our server would roll his eyes when we chose something that was not available, although it was on the menu. We are very patient couple and are able to tolerate rudeness. Nevertheless, the level of rudeness was too much. We left the restaurant and ate at the local restaurant the front desk suggested. In the morning, we had a better experience with the hotel restaurant (different staff and very polite). The steak and tomato was excellent and well cooked. It was tender and great flavors. Once the hotel gets rid of its kinks, it will be a great place to stay.

We stopped at this hotel on our way to Boquete this past week, and have to say we were surprised to find this very excellent hotel in Santiago de Veraguas! It is very modern, all in blues and whites, good airconditioning and comfortable beds. All you could possibly want, including a huge pool and good wifi. Dinner is good with ample portions. Breakfast is a buffet but they will make your eggs to order, so that was nice. No better place to stop in Santiago than the Mykonos. One thing which we would like to mention, in our room the safe in the closet was not attached to the wall, but could be lifted, so really not very useful as a safe. It will probably be fixed in due course.

Everyone talks about the Trump and it's service, but I would like to say, that The Mykonos from a service point of view may be better. My wife and I stayed there last night and found that the facitlities were exceptional for a non Panama City experience.
We had dinner last night and the meal was very good and the service we received would rival any restaurant in Panama City. We were surprisingly delighted. The service in this hotel is probably one of the best experiences in Panama and we hope that the hotel keeps this as their priority. We would recommend this hotel and restaurant to anyone we meet.

Stayed at this new hotel two days ago. Although is not completely finished, it is a very well thought project. The hotel has around 90 rooms which are very comfortable. There are meeting rooms are not totally finished as well as the gym. But all this will be finished soon. Rooms are a bit on the small size but bedding is excellent. There is a desk to work, excellent wi-fi connection, coffee maker, good air conditioner, and a bathroom with a super shower head. Lower level rooms facing the pool area (which is beautiful!) have a patio with table and chairs. A full service bar is big and vey well decorated. The restaurant is great and prices are low!. Food is preapred by an accomplished local chef and was delicious. Tried an eggplant appetizer that was great. And the entree was a beef filet with a blue cheese sauce that extraordinary. For dessert, the flan was decadent. The expresso was very well prepared. This hotel opened two weeks ago and still needs to be finished and minor service issues ironed out. But the owners are well aware of the issues and are taking corrective measures. The Mykonos is sure to become a landmark not only in the city of Santiago but in the country of Panama.

Room Tip: Lower level room facing the pool.
