Stayed here for 7 nights during Carnival time. Hotel was pretty busy and hosted a few events. Breakfast buffet was surprisingly good. They have two gyms located by the pool, one is renovated and the other one is outdated. For the most part I enjoyed my stay, staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

Given the location of this hotel, once you're in your room, you can easily forget that you're in the middle of so much activity. This was my first visit to Panama, and I must say that I truly enjoyed my time there, one of the reasons being the hotel itself. Very clean, very spacious. The one issue I had was the fact that there wasn't overhead lighting, but the lamps did provide a LOT of light when needed.

We arrived at the Continental hotel to check out the hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were having trouble with an airline website and Ryna assisted us beyond expectations. We booked in for a week, we were centrally situated, all the staff were friendly and helpful. We will most certainly return.

I booked on tripadvisor 8 days form Dec 22 to Dec 30.arrived at 10 pm and they told me my room was upgrade as complimentary, but breakfast was not included. never seen deluxe room without breakfast. when into the room light in the bathroom didn't work, reception called they answered "stay there we are sending a guy to fix it" after 2 hours nobody coming. The day after, was Sunday, at 8.30 am woke up with a terribile noise due to renovations works.i went to the lobby and asked for fix the light and stop renovations works. at until 3.30 pm they started again so i asked to move to another room. Rooms, bars and pool are very nice and clean, balconies are smalls. Location is perfect close everything but I expected better for my Christmas holiday, so i never come back

My husband and I stayed here twice, on the way in and the way out of Panama for our honeymoon. Both times the rooms were very clean. The staff was incredibly helpful, providing recommendations for a late night meal and assisting us with a late check out. The hotel remains under contruction, but the workers were quiet, polite, and friendly. Hotel continental seems like an excellent value for the price.
