Nice hotel. Impressive view of the canal entrance from the pacific. What you expect from a Holiday Inn clean and excellent Service. Quite far from many places to walk but just a taxi call to go everywhere.

The buffet menu was the same throughout the stay. The meat/fish should have been a bit hotter when served. There were times when the room was not made when I returned in the evening. After a long day, I did not want to wat for it to be cleaned.

How far is the beach from the hotel?
Hello, I've been traveling a lot and didn't have time to answer. The beach is 25 mins. away by car. Worth the trip if you ask me. Enjoy.

No charge. I took the shuttle to the airport and the mall. The shuttle pick up from the mall was about 30 mins or longer after the mall closes. I took Uber instead of waiting around for the shuttle to pick me up from the mall. There is a schedule at the front desk, it is not frequent.
