Fabulous 8.8 From 91 reviews

Good 6.0
Good and bad..
This hotel was good overall. It takes about 30-35 mins from the tocument airport tonthe property and just about 8 minutes to albrook mall by car. The hotel does not have airport transfers as advertised but they do have a taXi service which is expensive. $35 dollars one way to and from the airport. Its cheaper by uber or cabify. I paid $20. Breakfast is good. Wifi does not pick in rooms. Well atleast my room which was 112. I had to go outside or by the pool for wifi. Yet still it was dropping. The hotel number provided on this page is not accurate as i have been trying to call them days before my stay.. even their call centre for BW was crappy because the girl was confused with my english. Sighz.

12 days in Panama City
This hotel was a little gem. It was very clean and comfortable. There is a pool, as well as a small, but adequate, gym. They have a very nice room for breakfast, with good choices. The front desk was always very helpful with any requests, or help that we needed in navigating the city. The location was very convenient to all parts of the city with a good choice of restaurants within walking distance. The area was very pleasant and safe....we were happy with our choice.

Nice pool to cool down in
We enjoyed our stay, the pool was great fun for the kids and our room was quiet. The view of the wall was less desirable but it did make for a quiet night.

Best value for your money.
One of the two elevators was out-of-order during our week long stay. Front desk staff is awesome - efficient, friendly and courteous. Central location with shops, restaurants and the El Dorado mall within walking distance. Special recognition to the front desk team of Norma, Donielda and Yessica for making our stay very memorable.
