Great first Panamanian Experience

My wife and I went to Panama to see if it was viable to consider as a retirement location. We were blown away with Panama City! The people were very friendly and multi cultural and t h e infrastructure was first class. Our hotel was very luxurious and impressive. The breakfast buffet was truly a feast and the pool area was very high end, clean and friendly and the rooms were clean, modern and had great Cityscape views. Would defiantly recommend!

good trip

Super hotel but staff not at all friendly . They do there job but don't look like they are enjoying what they do and at times make you feel you are a bit of a nuisance.

Oasis in no man's land

THis is a great little hotel if you want to be close to the airport and feel as if you've already begun your tropical oasis trip. We had to overnight in Panama on our way to St. Marin and chose this little gem because it is about a mile away from the airport. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle 24 hours that can pick you up and bring you back to the airport so there is no need to rent a car (as we did,unless of course you want to venture into Panama City). We decided to stay put in the hotel. We received 2 complimentary cocktails, free grand buffet breakfast which starts really early (if you need to be at the airport by 5am). Pool bar is nice, lots of chairs, tropical setting, great drinks. Played table tennis outside. Had dinner at the hotel outside by the pool. The setting was nicer than the food, and the service was great.

Christmas Trip

I spent the Christmas holidays here and found it to be quite enjoyable. The hotel is in a convenient location near restaurants and some shopping. The transportation system is not the most convenient as the hotel does not have its own cars. However, getting taxi cabs is very convenient. Free breakfast is a plus!
