Stayed one night, on my last night in Panama. What a beautiful hotel! I walked around the neighbourhood and I also took an evening swim in the lovely pool. Room was huge, with floor to ceiling views and a million channels on the big screen tv. Breakfast was delicious. Everything was top notch and I would love to return.

Stayed in three different hotels while in Panama City and this is my hands down favorite. Great rooms, friendly staff and nice amenities. Some services were a bit uneven and I would call this a training deficit. The front desk personnel had command of several languages making it easy for travelers who speak halting or no Spanish. My advice to...

The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The facility is impeccable and one can see they try hard to keep it that way. I was able to use their spa and gym and enjoyed both.The buffet breakfast is one of the best i have seen.

I asked for a room higher up with a view and with a great smile the front desk clerk gave us a wonderful room on the 33rd floor. The room was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had lots of towels and amenities. A small mini bar was great for my beer and my wife's wine. There is a wine store a...
