After waiting at the Panama City airport for 10 hours I wasn't exactly thrilled to be told by the United Airlines staff that our plane would not be repaired that day and we would be taking a bus back to Panama City to a hotel and we would try again in the morning. Standing in line at the hotel to check in were 120 people. No AC and no WIFI and no internet in the rooms. you could purchase a wifi 24 hour access card for 13.00. I get to my room facing the courtyard and from the 6th floor all you can hear is the live band playing until 11:00 PM. My room was hot with AC barely functioning in the room. The hallway was freezing. I wasn't the only one that had no AC in their room.
I will say that the food was good, they set up a buffet with chicken and corvina, some cheese and deserts. The vegetables were mushy cauliflower and broccoli. The corvina (sea bass) was outstanding!!!
