I lovely property. Spacious lobby and bar/restaurant area. Seamless check in with friendly front staff. Bar/restaurant team also very efficient, friendly and as soon as you give room number on day one they all refer to you by name. Very spacious room. Anyone who knows me knows shower pressure and in room water are a must. tick on both counts. The shower was not only powerful but very spacious as was the rest of the room and bathroom. A/C worked well and the desk, internet and working area all very good and again so spacious. I will be staying here again.

I am mad at myself for booking the Le Méridien again. The minute I entered my room, I remembered my complaint from 2018 about the exact same issue: the sewage smell coming out of the bathroom. Maintenance came for a quick treatment, but the problem is the smell had years to seep into all fabrics of the room. I can’t understand why noting has been done to remedy this issue! Besides that, the location is great! Great Bonvoy Elite recognition and room upgrade . The restaurant is outstanding! Lounge never reopened, but Plat and above get complimentary breakfast buffet access and 2 hours ( 6 – 8 PM) of happy hour = free alcohol and a snack plate.

I cashed in some Bonvoy points and used them for our 3 night stay at the Le Meriden last week. It’s in a great location along the main road which links the old and new parts of the city. We found it a good base to get to everywhere we wanted to do via Uber cars. Check in was good and the receptionist gave us a good introduction to the hotel and upgraded us to a Gold Suite with my Platinum Bonvoy status. This also gave us free breakfast and drinks and nibbles in the bar each night from 6-8 pm which was great. The bar staff really looked after us well. Our suite was huge with a large sitting area as well a big jacuzzi bathroom and comfortable bedroom. Breakfast was average for the quality of the hotel but fine for what we needed.

The hotel is very well kept. I do think rooms need a refresh but clean and well maintained. I would stay again. Diana and all of the staff were absolutely amazing. Food was excellent and good prices. I would highly recommend for a visit. Pool is a little small

The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. We especially enjoyed being cared for by Dyana in the restaurant and bar. She made us all feel welcomed. She even went out of her way and found a way for us to have a spot to play cards as a family. She's fabulous. Thanks Dyana.

Perfect spot for a special getaway. Its location is prime with a view of the bay. Diego is phenomenal, very attentive and ensured our stay was remarkable. The staff serve you with a genuine smile and remembers your name, it made me feel like family. We were upgraded t a diamond suite, bright and airy. very sophisticated. The only disappointment was the club lounge was closed for repairs. But they more than made up for it, with delicious buffet food in the lobby bar/lounge and happy hour with the best and most potent drinks in Panama. I will be returning.

Staff at Le Merieden really made a difference. I actually felt like at home. A very personalized experience where I was treated with respect. Special words for Dayanna, she was so friendly and supportive even when she has a lot of customer to do. Always has a word and a time for me. also Christian and Oscar great guys as well. I totally recommended this place. Very well located.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return. All staff were friendly and courteous. The club lounge was closed but we were offered breakfast and happy hour in the restaurant - which was excellent. Service by Marco and Dayana was excellent. The location worked well for us - central to all the sights via inexpensive Uber rides. It would be nice if complimentary coffee and soda were offered during the day to MB platinum members since the club lounge was closed. We didn’t attend happy hour on two of the nights we stayed but had coffee on returning to the hotel to freshen up - we would have appreciated this as a benefit. The restaurant serves excellent food for dinner also! Note - noise travels from one room to the next via poorly insulated dividers at the window edge - can hear louder voices easily. Also, there is a “party bus” that cruises along Balboa playing very loud music that could be heard from our room (which was ocean view and therefore fringed Balboa) - this didn’t last too long - but the hotel is - boutique hotel with onky 6 stories so you hear the Balboa street noise. And - I didn’t like the bathroom set up. There is a frosted glass wall between the bathroom and the bedroom so there is no privacy when taking a shower or doing your business. As well, if using the bathroom while your partner is sleeping, you can’t turn the light on because light then floods the bedroom. Lastly, the frosted glass door to the bathroom didn’t close all the way. Frosted glass really doesn’t hide anything! Close in the bathroom would be advisable, in my opinion.

Decent hotel but definitely could use a little improvement. The hotel is clean and comfortable, although a little dated in places and banged up (our room's window had a giant crack in it, which had me wondering how safe that would be in a storm!). The view was lovely and the location is good. Breakfast was fine, nothing to write home about. The happy hour drinks and snacks were fair, and the food was ... not good. Definitely don't eat at the restaurant for anything other than breakfast. Also, the hotel is centrally located, which is good, but overlooks a giant parking lot that turns into party bus central on weekends (no joke). It is LOUD. The other nights were quiet, but this is definitely a negative on the hotel's location. Also, it helps to come with a working knowledge of Spanish if possible. At the front desk the staff's English is good, but at the restaurant and spa it's extremely limited. It was difficult to communicate with the massage therapist, who then also told me I was only allowed to pay in cash (which I didn't think was true but had no time to verify). We didn't use the pool because we were busy doing other things, but it appeared to be in need of a little attention. Also, housekeeping was spotty. Some days they didn't come, and when they did, they often didn't replace the towels (although they took the used ones away). Three times I had to call down to request towels, which was a little strange. Overall this is a very serviceable hotel that's located in a central area that makes it easy enough to get to most attractions by foot, cab, or Uber. Do not expect luxury and you won't be disappointed.

Dear Mr. abstill: Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the hotel. This allows us to see all the opportunities to improve the hotel. At the spa you can make the charge in cash, credit card or charge to the room. I would like you to send me your hotel reservation information to my email so I can investigate this case. Perhaps the language barrier was the difficulty for the therapist to explain the options. I am very sorry that your experience was below expectations. Thanks again for your feedback.
