Super noisy AC, you just can´t sleep. Rooms are not clean, the place is old. Rug was dirty, elevators are very old. No internet in the room!!! And the price is not that good, I can´t recommend staying here to anyone. Only the staff were ok

I would...

I stayed at this hotel for a few days until i could finally get a room at another hotel. It was a horrible experience - the staff is probably the only positive thing I could say. The bed was awful, uncomfortable, the sheets smelled bad, the AC was too loud but I had to keep it on at full power...

I just got back from Panama, and staying at Crystal Suites was a great experience. I love that hotel, it's very clean, comfortable, safe and the staff was very friendly and polite. It is a great price for the size of rooms you will not be disappointed. The pool there is great if you aren't looking for a sandy day...
