Veneto Hotel & Casino
Ranked #101 of 115 Hotels in Panama City
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The Veneto is a modern hotel that offers all the conveniences and the necessities for the business traveler combined with a long tradition of excellent service. The Hotel restaurants are first rate and the Major Dining room is one of the best menus in the city for the Steak Lover. The Casino makes the hotel even better. While the street in front is a little on the sordid side of night life the Hotel is a great oasis for those who come to PC for work. Very reasonable rates and good service when requested. Not a family facility as the night hours fill up with all the hubbub of a major casino and the associated crowd. Excellent business services available and the pool is amazing.

This is the center point of a fairly seedy street in Panama City. It's surrounded by sex shows and sex toy stores. There are a few good restaurants in the area. The hotel it self doesn't seem to be the standard you would expect to get at a Windham Hotel, and there are better areas very close by that are safer and much nicer. Don't go by the brand on this one because it will not pleasantly surprise you.

Hotel hard to find. Front dest accommodating.
Great bellman noticed no towels or glasses in room. Eventually got a few, never a full set.
Noise level until 3 am very loud. Thumping of music.
Sketchy about using coupon given for their breakfast room.
Fine for 20 something that wants to party all night.
Directions are so difficult that our nice bellman actually came in our car to get us to the highway to airport.

Don't plan on internet in your room; first stay required 4 trips to front desk before they found a room with hard wire internet - wireless only in the public areas; second stay....got room with with very leaky bathroom faucet and no internet, met director of social media who immediately promised to have management fix ..... no action.... gave up. Casino is lively but the bar was tough to get them to give you a drink and even tougher for them to give you back the change, the hotel has its own taxi's and if you pick another one in front they get downright nasty. Also expect to pay at least twice and maybe three times more for the hotel taxi's, convenient location, nice morning breakfast buffet, pool and exercise area with bar on seventh floor was good. Lastly, if you book through a third party internet site be very very careful; make sure you have a printed copy of the confirmation that clearly shows you paid the third party. If it does not expect the hotel to charge you even if you believe the third party was paid. This happened to me and after much discussion I discovered the third party took my credit card info but referred it directly to the hotel for payment. It was the same rate as on the site but it was confusing. The concierge in the accessories shop downstairs was very helpful and their computers worked and they had a printer and they spoke english and I was happy to liberally tip them. This is central america and despite a heavy american influence the people are poor and view the gringo as an open pocket book and they want their fair share.

Room Tip: higher has less noise

We booked two nights at the Veneto several days apart through a special advertised in the Visitor Newspaper. At first they told us the ad said the cost was per night, not for two. But I scanned the the ad and emailed it to them and they said they would honor it. When we got there the staff was friendly and very helpful. Our second night was to have been three days later, but after our plans changed we called and asked if we could come the night before instead. They very pleasantly agreed. The breakfast buffets were wonderful, the rooms clean and luxurious, and we really enjoyed our stay there.

I´ve traveled to many places and seen many beautiful hotels and resorts in North, Central and South America, and one that I really enjoyed staying at is the Veneto - A Wyndham Grand Hotel in Panama City, Panama. The attention is great but what I really enjoyed was all the fine women from all walks of life. The gambling is exciting and you can actually feel lady luck in the air around you. I would recommend a cool get away to this hotel resort and Casino. I know you will love it and will plan a return vacation in the future. Write and let me know your experience at this grand hotel.

I stayed there on the top " concierge" floor. The rooms were nice and large bathrooms with nice amenities.. The hotel is in a safe district, very near the business/banking district so it was convenient fior my business trip. There were some very nice restaurants within walking distance, even a McDonald's on the corner. Try the Casa del Marisco for there fresh fish.
The included continental breakfast was adequate, but rooms at lower costs which included full breakfast is a better deal. The WiFi was "hit and miss." There was also suppose to be evening drinks, local liquors, with ardors. It was very disappointing, they were 45 minutes late with the opening, the food, even under burners were limp and tasted old. The lady who finally came up to serve was not very helpful and somewhat rude. She apparently came from the casino and did not want to be there. I would give the hotel an overall 3 star rating.
