We had a very nice stay at El Panama. The staff was attentive (even with our limited Spanish speaking). The location was a bit intimidating for walking to and actually finding restaurants with the traffic and unmarked streets. But, we found it worked to take a taxi for $2 week night / $6 weekend night and then walk home (the hotel and nearby hotels were easily visible after dark). The bed was very comfortable, A/C was cold, shower was hot. On week nights, our floor (5) had a happy hour type thing with snacks and drinks. Ethernet cable was available with pretty fast internet, for free. Also, we had free wifi, which worked for our first stay (4 nights), but we never got to work on our second stay (2 nights). A cab driver charged $40 for the round trip to Miraflores Locks-while he waited for us 3-4 hours. It was advertised that you can get a free ride to the Locks with a dinner reservation at the restaurant there, which may be worth it if you want to eat and relax and watch the big ships in the afternoon. Location was close to the Ray super market, 2 laundry mats, restaurants, fast food, bars. Would stay again, but maybe see if we could get the pool side. On our second stint, the city was doing overnight work to build the new subway and from the "garden" side, you could hear the machines at night.
