Upon arrival I was swiftly checked-in and received an Platinum upgrade to a "Business Suite". I would guess the furniture in the living room is temporary, because it seems to be directly out of a furniture rental store and placed without much taste. Imagine a "Business Suite" with a miniscule work desk tucked into a corner..... The only light in the bedroom was from the bed lights, which makes it difficult to see anything at night. Bathroom is OK with separate shower/tub. Air-condition is so loud that you cannot have it on at night. All in all a very average to poor room experience. Small but nice pool area and fitness center are located on the upper floor.
The Executive Lounge is nicely appointed, but service staff badly needs training and oversight. Downstairs reception, bar and restaurant areas are nicely appointed and food is OK without being anything extraordinary.
Costa del Este is a comfortable 15 minutes drive from the Tocumen airport, and about the same from downtown depending on trafic, which can be heavy in Panama. It is a new (and still unfinished) upscale office and residential area, with little to no shops or restaurants. If you do not have business in the area, you are probably better of staying closer to downtown.
