This was me and my husband's first time in Panama and we stayed at this hotel with our niece who was celebrating her 39th birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly, helpful and facility clean. Customer service seems to be a high priority. Special shout out to all the service personnel (Joseph, and Da...) who work behind the scenes. You are a big reason why we would return to this hotel.

Hotel's Favourite
We would give this hotel 10 stars if we could- fantastic experience all the way around! Each staff member was super friendly and welcoming and truly happy that you were there. The doorman, front desk, housekeeping, pool bar staff and breakfast workers all were wonderful! The breakfast buffet is not one to miss- fresh flowers on the tables, coffee, tea, juices, tons of fruit, breads, yogurts, made to order omelettes, hot dishes , cereals , granolas - you name it was there and everyone was pleasant to help ! Room was clean and nice- plenty of towels and bottles of water to drink. Hotel was happy to store our bags even before we checked in while we were on an excursion. Upon arrival several days after dropping our bags they knew our names as soon as we arrived! Staff had great recommendations of a few places within walking distance of the hotel which were very good. We loved this hotel and plan to stay again next time we visit Panama City.. Do not hesitate to book a room here - you will not regret it - we loved it!!!

I came to Panama on a group trip. First time and will definitely be returning! The staff was so courteous and accommodating and the hotel was nice. Anytime there was a minor hiccup they made up for it unprompted. The manager made my trip extra special and I appreciate her so much for going out of her way for me. The breakfast is delicious so be sure to make time for that in the mornings. Jose and the girl with the brown hair and blond ponytail were friendly, patient and pleasant while I practiced my struggle Spanish with them haha. So was the gentleman at the omelette station:-) My suite was comfortable and spacious and I look forward to coming back. Patricia at the front desk was also very sweet and pleasant. The concierge gave some great recommendations for delicious restaurants and activities. Where you decide to stay plays a big part in the overall trip and I’m glad that I chose the Waldorf Astoria Panama.

My wife and I had a day layover after a trip to Pinas Bay Panama and decided to stay at the Waldorf. I read some of the reviews where it was stated that some of the rooms looked tired. That was not our experience as we loved the hotel . It is in a more quiet part of town and the hotel and service was excellent. When we arrived, our room was not ready which is understandable since we arrived very early. They quickly put a cleaning crew on the room and we were in our room in 30 minutes. The front desk people along with Michael were excellent. We had lunch at the hotel lobby restaurant and it was also very good. If we come back to Panama City ,we will stay at the Waldorf.

This hotel is located in the heart of the city. It is super clean and the rooms are comfortable. Staff is super friendly. If I had to say one negative, it would be the breakfast. Not as good as the RIU

The hotel was cool, but what really stood out was the staff. Dailin and William at breakfast, and Flash and Oliver in the lobby were all so kind and sweet. So were those at the front desk (I don’t remember their names). I enjoyed the staff so much it made the stay feel like home!

We spent a total of 2 weeks at the Waldorf Astoria Panama and could not have been happier with our stay. We felt the value was excellent for the quality of the room and service. The hotel is one block back from Avenida Balboa & has several very good restaurants within an easy walk, and just about any of the tourist areas (Mira Flores Locks, Cerro Viejo, etc.) are an easy $3-5 Uber or taxi ride. There are many Uber drivers in town & this seems to be the go-to option for transportation in this part of town). We will definitely be returning!

I stayed for 4 days at the Waldorf from the 27th till the 30th of July and the experience was really pleasant. The service was top notch, the staff was amicable and always looking to help, I was greeted with a fruit basket as well as a very kind note from the Reception Desk. The room was spacious and very comfortable, the bathroom was equipped with Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries, kuddos to the cleaning staff, as my room was cleaned everyday. The staff at both restaurants were also very courteous, a special thanks to Karla from the Peacock Alley Restaurant, she and the other hostess from the Matiz Restaurant Breakfast Buffet are two of the nicest staff I met during my stay. My first time staying at a Waldorf Hotel and it exceed my expectations! The food was really good, the pool had a really nice vibe (sadly I couldn't enjoy it enough), impecable service from nearly all of the staff and luxury all around. I hope to be back very soon as I enjoyed my stay at the Waldorf and I loved Panama City very much. I guess my only negative comment would be that you have to pay for parking at 15USD per night, money which could have been spent on drinks at the bar ;)
