    Stunning beautiful room with equal view, clean large.

    20 minutes to check in, I was holding a Booked.net reservtion, they didn't believe I had a reservation. I was the only one in line, so they weren't busy, can't blame that. People were very nice, but nothing got done. We asked to change rooms, They assured us they would look for a different room and call right back.... Never did. The red light on our phone flashed all the time we were there. There was no message, I had to check several times a day, they promised to have someone fix the phone every day, several times a day, never happened.... The light is presumably still flashing.. And most annoying, I requested a taxi from the bell hop, $ 12 us to go exactly 3 blocks. I was outraged and got out of the cab. Hailed a cab off the street,,, $2 including the tip. I complained to the manager, yes he did speak english, he acknowledged that they were gouging the clients! I told him how pissed off I was that they would do that, did he think his wealthy clients didn't care they were getting ripped off, his response... He just smiled at me. I met many others who walked to the street to hail a taxi. Obvioulsy I was not the only unhappy client.

    The hotel was very beautiful and had nice amenities. The breakfast buffet that is included is awesome. Very similiar to what an all inclusive hotel would serve. We chose to upgrade to the Executive Club and the extra services we received were well worth the value.

    I will not recommend this hotel at all, we had the worst experience, I am using Booked.net for years and very often as we travel a lot. So far I was very pleased until now. When I made the reservation with Booked.net I was priced: us$ 690.80 on the morning of my departure as I was checking out, I noticed that my bill for the 4 nights had been calculated at us$1300 When I mentioned to the desk staff person that I was supposed to get the Booked.net rate she said I need to settled it with Booked.net. No English spoken at this hotel, only the supervisor claim to speak it, the hotel was over crowded with business convention meeting, so as a result the elevators were very busy we needed to wait for long time, all floors 1-6 are business. With people coming and going non-stop. An unpleasant room , very cold , freezing ,bathroom was smelling bad and we got sick, windows are sealed no fresh air, no paper toweled in the room , the management were very rude, housekeeping and front desk were busy and could not communicate in English, everything was costly for no reason, Unfortunately, I was billed the wrong amount. I am embarrassed to say that I was so dumbfounded by the supervisor rude behavior that I then left the hotel. I find it hard to believe that a five star hotel management would knowingly employ such a forgetful, abrasive, and unprofessional manager.

    Design hotel with nice spacious modern rooms. Nice pool area and fabulous breakfast! Great views from top floors.

    Room smelled of humidity. I asked to change and the other room was fine. The taxis of the hotel are very expensive. Go out to the street and get one from there.

    The breakfast was really good, But food out off that was expensive and not so good..

    Aire condition very noisy. Tv volumne unable to fix...to loud or not voice at all

  • Older travelers

    Location excellent for Central Panama City. Room was very comfortable and luxurious, but not sure about the lime green decor!

    This was very much a business hotel, main downside that almost too large! Had to queue for a long time to check in, no sign of bell boys, which would normally be associated with 5-star. Rather impersonal.

    I'm a 61 year old woman with a back problem. No one came to my room to carry my bags to the lobby when I was checking out. When I checked in, the man at the reception desk was reluctant at first to help me with my bags. I also tried to reserve a hotel taxi the evening before, as I had to catch an airplane. I was told this was not necessary. However, the next morning there were no hotel taxis available and I had to take an ordinary taxi with no seat belts in the back.
