The hotel does have a great mountain view but that's it. Just spent the worst 4 days of my life. Will never return. Staff is nice only upon arrival. Was not told a car is absolute for the area. After expressing to staff the difficulty finding a bus taxi or tour guide was told by the front desk person Adrian that we should have known better and that it would be unlikely that a tour guide or taxi would even show up if requested. Staff had little to no knowledge of the area. Was unable to find any transportation to hiking areas. When things went wrong such as the bed being covered with ants and taking the wrong bus we were blamed. Linens smell of mildew. Furniture in and out of room is extremely uncomfortable. Rooms are dark and dingy with poor lighting and horrendous cutlery. I would advise avoiding Panama as it is unfriendly and could care less about tourism. Being fluent in Spanish is also a requirement.
