“Absolutely first-class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The rooms in this all-suite hotel were fantastic, but it was the quality of the staff that was absolutely first class. They were extremely kind and patient with my young children (age 6 and 8), and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. When I called room service looking for plain cheese pizza for my youngest, Miguel went down the street to La Rana Dorado and brought it up to our room. The hotel also made all of the arrangements for our excursions, and they selected very age-appropriate activities. Captain Carl is not to be missed!! On the way out to his boat, our van stopped at one of the large resort hotels at Playa Bonita. Although it was a typically beautiful beach resort hotel, I was SO GLAD we had chosen to stay in Casco Viejo. We were able to experience so much more of the Panamanian history and culture than we would have at a more generic resort.

The on-site restaurant is quite obviously a neighborhood favorite, and was packed with locals for Sunday brunch. I ordered ceviche in nearly every restaurant during our stay, and found the best at the on-site restaurant in the hotel. Our experience at Las Clementinas was by far our best family vacation to date.

Room Tip: There are only six rooms in the entire hotel. The best views of are from the higher floors - althou...

Hello and thank you for the amazing review! We are so thrilled to hear you had a great time on your holiday with us, and I know you and your lovely children were staff favorites during your stay. Every day, someone would come up to me and tell me a story about one or both of them. Thank you, also, for mentioning Miguel. He is an amazing asset to us, and helping guests seems to just run in his blood. We hope you come again!

If you are fortunate enough to secure one of the six rooms in Las Clementinas you will be delighted with the experience. These folks are a class apart. The service is exemplary. My daughter needed medical care and they called the doctor to our room and went out to get prescription medicine late at night. The property is very nice and is located in old city. The main police station is across the street so you could not be any safer. Breakfast was wonderful. Overall it is one of the best places we have stayed in central America.

Room Tip: Because of the historical nature of the building there are no elevators. If you are lucky enough to...

The good:
The hotel is a little outside of the big city, in el Casco Viejo. We arrived a little early and even though the power had gone out (which is very common in Panama City) we were treated to the best mojitos I have ever tasted. The power was up very soon and after some fantastic ceviche we checked in to our room. It was fully equipped with a stove, dishware, cookware, fridge (mini fridge accommodations but nothing mini about it - really good prices too) AC, huge living room, shower, tv, balconies, and a game of dominoes. The staff always greeted us every morning (complimentary breakfast was so freaking good - get the french toast and brie), gave us directions, maps, recommendations and ordered a cab for us. The town is safe (stick to the east side toward the water) and there are great restaurants and bars in the area. A wonderful experience all around.

The OK: If you are going on a Sunday, things will be quiet at night. We expected this and it was fine. When I looked at the bill there were minibar purchases that we had not made. I let them know and they took it off immediately. So just check over the bill before you pay.

The not so good: We cooked dinner one night and the plastic lining of the pot came off in the heat. Better quality cookware would be nice. Not the biggest deal but we forgot to mention it to the staff.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our hotel. While we could not be happier that you enjoyed your stay (and the mojitos!), we're sorry to hear about the incident with the cookware. We normally supply cookware on request, and it is usually reviewed before being provided to the guest. We're very sorry that the quality control on this particular item slipped through the cracks and have already taken that item out of inventory once we read your review.

Thank you again, for your time and we appreciate all the feedback!

Good service, excellent amenities, a solid restaurant close by, in the case of this hotel it is on the premises. We loved it and will recommend it. Great for anyone who wants to see the old part of the City as it should be seen, within its walls!

Great service, delicious food, close to main tourist attractions in the Casco Antiguo.
Rooms are spacious and very clean, air conditioning a little bit noisy but not an issue.
Staff is very helpful. Taxi drivers indicated by the hotel are highly recommended: look for Vicentin during the day and Armando during the night.

After 3 days in Panama City, my wife and I had a wonderful lunch here. We really liked the simple decor and excellent quality of the food. It was probably the best meal we have had in Panama City. We will definitely return. We agreed that it reminded us an old New Orleans style quality restaurant. Three stars!
