This is the most pathetic hotel I've stayed at in years. We weren't expecting much (only moved in because our regular hotel was booked for the last two nights of our stay so they moved us next door). Amazingly this place was even worse than we expected.
Coming from a bright, sunny Panama day you enter a dark, pulsating night club-style lobby. Just what you need at 4 in the afternoon after a long day. The music at that moment was particularly unpleasant headbanger stuff but I can live with that. We advanced through the gloom to the check-in counter behind which was a bigger than life size extremely bright, loud rock video complete with strobe lights. Trying to hear the check in clerk and answer his questions was nearly impossible with both the music and the flashing lights, but eventually we did get checked in.
Then up to the rooms--at least they are quiet. That's about the best I can say. They are a decent size but are dingy and sad. Lighting consists of a few pot lights in the ceiling that cannot be directed anywhere useful. The bathroom has two pot lights shining straight down--no way can you get any light on the mirror so you can see what you are doing. The basin is on a pedestal with about an inch of counter space around it. No room for even the minimum of makeup.
And don't get me started about the lack of outlets. Yes, there was one outlet at a desk in the bedroom, but that doesn't go far with 2 computers, 2 iPads, 2 iPods, and 4 phones (2 for home and 2 for Panama). I know they are catering to a young, cool generation. But surely even they need to plug in their electronics once in awhile.
