First we had something to eat downstairs. The food was delicious!! Take a vest with you, as in all Panamanian restaurants and bars, inside the airconditioning is freezing. After the dinner we went to the roofbar, you don't believe what you see when you get out the elevator! Music, nice atmosphere and one of the best skylines I've ever seen.... More

I went in this restaurant before and the location is good but they made something I'll never forgive and I'll never go anymore. We ordered a cocktail and they came with another one... this is not so bad but when we said it was the wrong one he tried to convince me to take that one. At that point I... More

The location is fantastic and the rooms exude incredible charm and character with their decor. However, how anyone is supposed to sleep is beyond me. The first night's stay (a friday) at 4:40am the music was still blasting. Saturday no much better. I even tried sleeping with my Bose noise cancelling headphones and no luck there. It's a shame, the... More

Location: great location in the heart of the old quarter Room: the room itself was great, cool wall art and nice and big but SUPER NOISY. I read some trip advisor reviews that said this but didn't think it would be as bad as they'd said, and it was, big time. The restaurant in the lobby has music until about... More

We came to the rooftop bar around sunset. You enter Tantalo hotel and see the well-decorated restaurant / lobby. Then you take the elevator to the 4th floor. Great views of the new city. Windy. Nice vibe. Modern music. A pleasant experience, since we did not want the loud club-type setting which it transforms into later on at night.

Nice venue with lovely breeze. Shame about service & prices. $10 to get in, then they have another area cordoned off for VIPs if you want to pay another $10, rip off. Music gets louder as night goes on, until you can't hear anything. Each of us had to ask for the bar staff to stop watering down drinks, at... More

We went to the rooftop bar cause people recommended it. You get a beautiful view over Panama skyline. The music wasn't too loud as we stayed there (between 8 and 9pm), it was still possible talking to each other. Drinks aren't cheap but the mojito is really good! For some reason you're not allowed to put chairs at the bar...

Dear Gabriel, First and foremost we wish to thank you for communicating your situation with the bar staff. It is true that we are currently going through transitions regarding our bar staff as we are renovating staff. Despite what you point out is not the norm for our regular client, we do believe it's important to work with. This is... More

This is the second time I've stayed on this hotel, and it's good location, generous rooms and funky decor mean I will happily stay again when next in Panama. The rooftop bar is a good place to hang out, the staff attentive and the drinks relatively reasonably priced
