We went to this hotel for a family weekend getaway and we had a great time. This hotel has the best hotel pools in Panama City, and is very family friendly. We liked eating breakfast at Cafe Pacifica. The food from the Starfish Grill is really good: we had angus burgers, chicken quesadillas and chicken fingers for lunch at the pool, and the waitress Victoriana was great at getting us our order and providing exceptional service. We had ice cream for dessert from the ice cream shop, which was also very good. We find that the snacks (hot dogs, nachos) were good also, and a special mention to Marisol, who cooked at the "Tidal" by the pool, for her service and hard work. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Our room had an oceanview with a balcony, and the heavenly beds were a dream!.. The bathroom had a tub and a separate shower, with Westin White Tea Aloe soaps/products. As locals we know that in that area the "chitras" (small insects that bite) show up at 6 p.m. so be aware if you are in the grounds or by the pool. You now know why the hotel provides the "Defender" insect repellents. The beach is nice for a walk but not to go in for a swim. Considering that the hotel has been open only for a couple of years and the large groups they accommodate, I can say that they have improved a lot in hospitality, service and quality standards, and we definitely will go back!
