This is a very nice hotel. There is a big feel to it from the second you enter the huge lobby to when you go outside and see the complex of 4 or 5 pools which give out onto a large stretch of Pacific coast beach. It's quality large resort hotel.
The rooms were spacious, well equipped including international TV stations and WIFI, very comfortable beds and multiple pillow choices.
That said while I was there at least one of the lifts was broken every day, the corridors were quite unkempt, bits of my room were falling apart, the hotel computer system broke down, hotel staff found it hard to work out who was on on all-inclusive and who was just a regular guest, the concierge was a little off-hand or bemused when asked for help contacting the Lost Baggage people at Panama airport - generally I felt there was a lack of leadership or management in the hotel - but this could be the Panamanian way. Of the 600 delegates attending 2 conferences at the hotel, 150 at least were missing bags.
In summary I liked the hotel, I liked the 'not-in-your-face' attitude, I would use it again if travelling to Panama.
