Beatiful Hotel in the Rainforest next to the Canal

The hotel is placed in a very nice environment like a resort - quiet and visited by people from all over the world.There is a long history to the hotel and its with an antique presentation and a great staff you will feel yourself back in colony time.trips are available and with the Canal next door its a must or a cruise from the hotel in the rivers is a must.Outdoor facilities like tennis, two big pools with pool bar and cajaking is there.Food is in top with a large varity of buffet three times a day.

Charming and Good Location

Older Hotel with a Antique Charm in a very quiet location next to a river . Some of the Staff however needs to be retrained in customer service and the bell boys does not need to demand tips .The girls at the restaurant desk were the most un helpful . Check in desk was excellent

Good value for money - by far the best hotel in that part of Panama.

The building is impressive (huge size and lovely style) and even if it's not spotless, you can tell that there're works being carried out and nothing is run down. Breakfast is very varied and fresh.The outdoors area is very nice and well maintained... however the pool water wasn't that clean (at least the 2 days we stayed). Another let down was the wifi signal, which didn't get to the room.

Was quite good, but.......

The hotel itself is in a middle of nowhere. Not easy to find. But suddenly you are in a nice area with view on Gatun Lake and great pool. Room was nice in art dedco style and very comfortable and spacey. We had a buffet dinner and was not bad. Breakfest was also very good. The only problem was, that I left some valuables at the hotel and all my e-mails were left unattended for more that 14 days. Only after my arrival back to Europe a person from the hotel got in touch with me with offer, that they can send it by DHL on my costs. If they emaile me earlier, they could send it by regular post in Panama, because I was there. So I asked them to put my things on charity. This is why I underate the hotel,.
