Good location, professional staff. The hair dryer in our room could not be used due to the backsplash above the counter being so close to the electric outlet that the hair dryer could not be plugged in.
This hotel is in a good location, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the price was fantastic. It would have been better if the reception had more people who spoke English. I tried to book a taxi to meet me at the airport but that was a challenge with the language barrier. I ended up calling the next day and had better luck.
Great location, nice hotel, wonderful staff. Our stay was pleasant and the food in the restaurant was fine. Only detractor was noise in the next room/hallway, but we had air conditioning and slept well despite the noise.
This hotel is ideally located with a view of the ocean. The lobby is well above the ground floor giving a sense of security and privacy. The elevators above the lobby only give access to those staying on that particular floor. The rooms are well thought out for comfort and convenience....bed was the most comfortable of any I stayed at in Panama.
Only one employee was unfriendly and rude. We didn't see her there except for the morning after our first night in the hotel. The other hotel employees were all courteous. The on-site restaurant employees were not all up to that same 'standard'. The restaurant food and service is acceptable, but was inconsistent in the day to day operations there. The same meal never came out of the kitchen the same way twice, but there some far worse 'places to eat' in the immediate area.
The 'regular room' that we stayed in 'seemed small', had a desk, no view; the 'balcony room' that we stayed in was a bit smaller yet, no desk and had a smaller bathroom/shower too.
I suggest visiting the Boardwalk. Step out the front of the hotel, turn left and walk about four blocks, cross at the crosswalk (these is an 'automatic' stoplight for the traffic, just wait for it, and then cross the second roadway using the overhead walkway. You're then at the boardwalk ... the 'highlight' of the immediate area.
None of the hotel staff seems to 'value' the boardwalk at all ... we 'found' the boardwalk (no 'beach', just a boardwalk) on our own. The boardwalk appears to be 'available' 24 hours a day. There were people there every time we visited it.
The only thing I can think of as to 'why' the hotel staff wouldn't mention the boardwalk area is that ''it's free'' ... the 'sites' that are promoted all have fees associated with them.
It is an acceptable hotel for the cost of the accommodations.
At the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal, Panama City is the country's largest city and its capital. It was also the first European settlement on the Pacific coast in the Americas. A major center for banking and commerce, the city is one of the most modern and cosmopolitan in Latin America. The Casco Viejo neighborhood, a Word Heritage Site, contains most of the city’s main monuments.
