We took advantage of COPA Airlines no cost layover and spent an extended weekend enjoying Panama City. We chose Santa María for the opportunity to play golf. Great Golf course. Accommodations and staff are very helpful and friendly. Restaurant food was ok but, the wait staff is slow and disorganized. Very nice resort and I would recommend it.

Hotel's Favourite
This a extremely well managed hotel. I have been in many five stars around the world and this one of my top ones. They made feel at home. Excellence in management and service. All staff are extremely polite and helpful. We spent almost two weeks at this hotel. My twins enjoyed each minute at the pool. Thank you so much to Omar, Claudia Jones and Rosa Maria, you were amazing! My kids had so much fun at the pool! The pool is delightful warm and clean. We also enjoyed a great breakfast everyday. At the restaurant, Nelson, Kris and Melissa were always so kind and helpful with us. This is a highly recommended hotel. I rarely give a five stars review but this hotel really deserves it. I hope they will always keep a high standard in comfort and service.

I love the hotel, the Location and the breakfast, the rooms are clean and spacious and have an amazing view of the golf course, the swimming pool is really nice, and I love the spa, just make sure ti pre-book your spa appointment. The service at the front desk could be a bit more friendly.

A real 5 stars hotel!! Santa Maria has everything you expect for a 5 Star Hotel for a business trip: Great accommodations, excellent service and an amazing buffet for breakfast. From the moment you arrive, you know this hotel is different: An expansive arrival area, beautiful lobby and the welcoming smile of the staff. Rooms are very well appointed for a great night of sleep! The gym has all what you need for your morning routine, so you burn some extra calories, before facing the great buffet breakfast. I always smile, when I know I will stay at the Santa Maria.

This resort is absolutely amazing. The property is gorgeous. The food, the pool, the view and the customer service are beyond exceptional. I have to give a lot of accolades to manager, Kathleen R. I had an unexpected incident during my stay and Kathleen went above and beyond to rectify the concern and communicated regularly with me to ensure that the issue was resolved prior to my departure. This entailed her doing things on her personal time. This type of customer service is nothing I expected, have experienced, or heard of. The stunning hotel is not too far for Panamá City Proper or from other places of interest. It is very clean, modern, comfortable and pure luxury. I have recommended this hotel to many friends and family members and would absolutely book again. Exceptional experience and service!!

This is a nice hotel with a good breakfast selection. Our room was not ready when we arrived so we took a hotel taxi to the nearby San Francisco neighborhood for lunch. Uber gave us a quote for $8 but we took a hotel taxi as recommended by a hotel staff. When we arrived at our destination, the taxi driver, Alexis, charged us $25 and he did not use the meter. Needless to say, after lunch we took an Uber back to our hotel for $8, and avoided the taxis after that.

Dear Reen926, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. Our associates are constantly being taken to training which we find unfortunate to hear that you were not well informed about the difference between Uber and the private taxi service offered by the hotel. We are aware the difference of the prices between both services but this why our associates should explain its benefits. We will work to ensure the necessary guidelines are in place to prevent from occurring in the future, we are confident that on your next stay you will notice the improvement of our services. Thank you one more time for your time, we hope to have you once again at The Santa Maria Hotel in a near future. Sincerely, The Santa Maria Hotel Team
