La Hacienda
Reviewed June 6, 2011

THis hotel is set on the road from Panama City to Bocas del Toro towards half way .
Lovely colourful rooms with a Mexican feel to the place .
Our room was a decent size & had 2 double beds with a great TV .
The kids had their own pool with slides around a play area near to the main pool itself, they loved the place .
The restaurant was good , a bit pricey , but further down the road were a couple of fish places if you wanted something more economical , we went to the ' Dos Mares " which was very good .
The perfect place to cut the journey up in a hotel geared on comfort , i would recommend this to any families with young kids .A great base to explore the Santa Fe area as well

La Hacienda is a gem of a small hotel in Santiago, right on the Intra-American Highway. Good restaurant with very good food. The people are terrific.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor.

The Hacienda is a hidden jewel as you would not expect such a friendly atmosphere on a busy roadside. We stayed there with our 4 year and 2 year old kids and had a blast using the facilities. The pool was awesome for our kids ( with slides and all) and the restaurants very welcoming for our little monsters.
The staff always super helpful and amicable even when busy. Last but not least, the rooms were really spacious and offering calm and relaxation from the street. It is a a no frills establishment but I would recommend it as a base camp for families wanting to explore the Veraguas region.

We were at La Hacienda this past weekend, and I must say we were surprised at the comfort of the hotel, in such a small city as is Santiago. They even have free wireless internet and cable television. The only things we could fault were 1) we could not find CNN in English and when we called the operator, she did not know either, there was only CNN in Spanish. Also, the water was cool in the shower, even though there was a sign indicating "Hot Water" there was no hot water, which I disliked. Other than that, the rest is fine. The restaurant is adequate, it is not gourmet, but it is not bad.

We stayed at La Hacienda at least 5 times in 2009 and 2010 while traveling through Panama. The rooms are spacious and clean w/ good beds and large TV. The pool and large patio and playground area were nice for the kids and relaxing for Mom&Dad. The pool was always clean, unlike other Panamanian hotels. The waterslide was also a hit w/ kids. Staff was very accommodating (maybe only because we speak Spanish - we noticed most places in Panama that this makes all the difference in service). Restaurant is overpriced but great coffee.
