Got sick while in Panama and the hotel staff was responsive, helpful and effective. EMT was called. Staff members went to pharmacy; brought extra things to the room; treatment was successful. They were kind, knowledgeable and generous the whole time.
us4 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
No bad, could be better-No está mal puede ser mejo
It was two nights stand. Room good size but it look didn’t have ventilation for bathroom (you can guess what happened when someone went to number 2). I appreciate that the bed has protective blankets for discharge (since I have a little kid). Everything pristine, however I killed a small cockroach. I live that in the country of the bathroom. Pool: I was advised by the person in charge that they were finishing the process of cleaning but it was fine for swimming a that point. The pool’s shower didn’t work. Front desk try Two charge extra breakfast that we didn’t order the last morning. In general it is alright, however because the price and Panamá Hotel’s tradition I believe it should be better.
Enrique, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The front desk & housekeeping staff was very nice and professional. The only issue that I had was with the valet employees. They did not look or act approachable. They seemed hesitant to do their job, which automatically made me decide that I would park the car myself.
