The Melia Panama Canal is located on the shores of Gatun Lake, 10 minutes from the Free Trade Zone of Colon. Great location for eco-tourism.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Melissa N : Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Beautiful and relaxing view! The best in Colon

This hotel has beautiful grounds. Even though i went for business, i felt like i was on vacations. Huge and relaxing pool, the hotel is sorrounded by Gatun Lake, so you can sit at the dock, do some kayak, go around in the boat and appreciate monkeys, and other animals around. The breakfast is very good. They also have a free bus to go and comeback from the Colon Free Zone.

Beautiful Setting and rooms

We stayed here overnight prior to a cruise ship departure from Colon. We were able to find a great deal on price (about $65).The room was large with a king sized bed and nicely appointed. The grounds were beautiful...a garden like setting nearby the canal. There were 2 adjoining pools with plenty of lounge and seating options.The hotel restaurant offers expensive but fair buffet options.

  • Mammers40 : Fullerton, California
Not that impressed

There's a beautiful view of the lake and the rainforest. The outdoor activities for the lake are fun. Pool is big but lacking pizaz. Bar staff is poor. Only one dining room and it's rather expensive and boring. Staff isn't overly friendly. And there is a real poor level of evening activities. I wouldn't come back.

  • Dr David T :
Great stay, if you focus on the natural surroundings

The lake and surrounding forest are incredible. The pool is so-so. The rooms are clean and comfortable. If you're looking for an all-inclusive luxury stay (which this hotel advertises itself as), you will be disappointed. If you genuinely want to explore the surrounding forest, lake, and former US army base, you will have a great time. Despite criticisms of the customer service, the employees I dealt with were helpful and polite. The buffet is pricey (25$), but if you have a large appetite you can get your money's worth. The food is almost certainly reheated and recycled but is mostly tasty.
