One of the best times and stays I've had in Panama City. I loved the executive room I stayed in, and the pool side bar and restaurant we give all are finest compliments. Also the staff was very accommodating.

Good hotel with lovely pool. Good restaurants and some fine sushi. My room was on the first floor and could be noisy in the corridors as no carpets and noise seemed to echo into the room. Overall though a great place to stay.
