Reception service excellent. All staff members pleasant and helpful. It was no problem for an early arrival. Also accommodated for a late departure. Staff gave helpful hints about taxis, walking around town etc.
This is my second visit to this hotel, and , once in Panama City, I will be staying here again.
The staff here are wonderful! The hotel was much better than I envisioned. If I ever make it back, I will definitely book my stay at BlueBay City Hotel. There is a breakfast place right across from the hotel if you do not want to eat at the restaurant at the hotel and it is very good and cheap. Very impressed!
My stay was short, and rushed. Problems with the international airport meant that a large group of tired travellers arrived almost simultaneously after 8:00 PM. The reception desk was undermanned for this, and the tired, grumpy travellers didn't make it easy. The check-in is a bit cumbersome, but the harassed clerks handled it well.
What I really wanted was a nice drink of my choice, and a well prepared dinner with wine.The bar and restaurant were disappointing in atmosphere and selection. Limited choices at the bar, and the wine list is poor. The food was adequate but not exciting. Service was friendly but not especially helpful.
Stayed at the Tryp for 3 nights upon arriving in Panama and 2 nights before leaving Panama 30 days later. Both stays were in a king deluxe room and both stays were excellent. The rooms were clean and the bedding was very comfortable. Our rooms came with the free breakfast buffet. This included an omelette bar, several choices of fruit, meats, breads and potatoes. This was a tremendous value. The bar is generous with their drinks and the appetizers in the bar offer you different choices than the dinning room. Staying for 5 nights we would like to see additional choices offered in the dinning room.
