From the outside the place looks beautiful, but I warn you against staying here.

We unfortunately signed a long lease and then as soon as we moved in:

1) We were WITHOUT WATER in the whole building for 8 DAYS IN A ROW. The building management is CHEAP and wanted to do short cuts in fixing the problem but in the end they just had to pay the proper people to come and fix it, but that is after leaving us without water and just the excuse "tomorrow you should have water"

2) It took 2 weeks to get our internet connected because the Administration is lazy and has a problem with foreigners. They made us wait for 5 days for the technician to come - taking 5 days off work to sit at home - and turned out they had never even placed the order for the technician to come, they just enjoyed wasting our time. UNBELIEVABLE but true.

3) The noise!!! You will never sleep past 5am because of all the traffic on Avenida Balboa and they do not have double sided glass and also the windows and door fitting are so cheap there are gaps so the noise comes right up and into the bedroom

4) The pool always has cigarette butts floating in it after the weekend and often a green slime on the pool walls.

5) The Administration is RUDE and UNFRIENDLY and likes to cause problems rather than fix them and treats you as though you are an inconvenience (that is putting it mildly).

6) The finishings are really bad in the apartment. We have to get our drains unclogged every 4 days as the pipes are too small so block very easily. It has almost become a joke.

Luckily we only have 4 more months on this lease and then we are far, far away from here.

DO NOT STAY!! Or if you do, make sure you negotiate a super cheap rate for all the hassle you will have to put up with.

On the plus side, the doormen are all lovely and smile and friendly and it is only a 15 minute walk from Casco Viejo and you also have the boulevard infront to run/rollerblade etc which is nice.

We visit Panama City often, and this time we stayed at Destiny. Destiny is primarily a residential tower, but some people rent their condos. The building is well taken care of and the pool area is really nice. Our view was amazing. The Concierge is extremely helpful, although their English skills were marginal. There is a guarded garage, but we took taxis everywhere and didn't rent a car. For those into jogging, the Cinta Costera has great jogging trails along the water. Our apartment was nicely furnished and well equipped, which made our stay pleasant.
There is some street noise, mainly from car horns and some sirens, however, you are in a big city and in Panama the motto seems to be "if in doubt, honk". We liked the location, and the building, so we'll probably go back.

Room Tip: The higher, the better.

Stayed at Destiny over the past few months and was really impressed with the overall quality of life. The tower's administration, while could be improved, is as good as you get in Panama with officers willing to do their job.

If you like outdoor exercise, the boardwalk facing the bay is right across from the building where you can run or simply go for a fantastic walk.

Overall, I highly recommend the Destiny Tower specially if you are looking for a good location with pools, party room, gym, parking and a great view from your apartment.
