We loved it. The rooms are amazing – artsy and funky but not too crazy - great for a romantic couples trip. We’ve stayed two different nights.
The balcony (from most rooms) lets you take in the amazingness that is Casco Viejo.
I have been to Casco Viejo either for the day or night seven times and Tantalo is the place to stay.
Staff is incredible – very attentive. We stayed here on our way to our destination wedding in Panama and right before our honeymoon in San Blas. When they heard we were getting married they gave us a free breakfast in Tantalo restaurant– one of the best I’ve ever had.
Example - we asked to pay to leave our bags with the hotel for five days while we were in San Blas and they were like no don’t worry about it we’ll just keep it for you for no charge. We were like – you guys are a god send… and they were.
Rooftop bar is also really nice with a great view of the city.
Great rooms, many great balcony views, great staff, great, restaurant, great rooftop bar, great everything – and just the right price so you aren’t thinking this is all too expensive while you’re enjoying yourself.
The hotel also has the advantage of being in Casco one of my favorite places in the world – if it’s not a part of your itinerary – change it now.
Only downside is that on weekend nights there is really loud music blasting into some of the rooms from the neighborhood – so ask about this if you’ll be there on a weekend – we slept through it but then again we were beat when we arrived on a Saturday. Less loud in certain rooms on weekends.
