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.
