We were looking for a lunch spot after driving around at and near Fort San Lorenzo. We focused on trying this hotel.....as Colon itself is not so appealing. The hotel is not easy to find.....there is no consistent trail of signs to its location.....I had to stop and ask several times but finally found it. We arrive just before 2PM....

I recently stayed at the Melia Panama Canal Hotel for 2 nights. Their website photos are quite deceptive. Yes, the exterior grounds and pool area are beautiful, as is the short walk to Gatun Lake. But, the interior needs a bit of sprucing up. There was a musty smell in the hallways, that a fragranced candle could not mask. I...

My husband and I stayed at melia one night because our first impression was good. Once we got there, we were never offered drinks by the pool even though everyone else around us were catered too. When we went to the lunch buffet water was poured for us, then we never had drinks again. The food Buffett was terrible and...

First off, the Melia Panama Canal is a beautiful property. It has a beautiful pool and Spanish Architecture, located on Lake Gatun. It could be such a great hotel if Melia Hotel Properties would only put more into it. It lacks what hotel travelers expect: prompt and courteous service (asked for an additional towel when checking in - it never...

Not all parts of this hotel were perfect, but overall it was a really nice experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was large and very clean. The King size bed was very comfortable, and the bedding and towels were very high quality. The location and property are great. Colon itself is dirty and very crowded, so it...

Although they are experiencing some renovation setbacks due to extreme rain over the past few months this facility offers the most exquisite dining and old world style. The swimming pools are inviting and Incredibly beautiful with mosaic tile design that rivals any European hotel. The staff is friendly and professional and the rates are very very reasonable.

Club Melia Panama Canal was once a very beautiful resort. Now, still very beautiful is definitely showing its age. It has some nice updates, but it is in definite need of a long list of minor maintenance. This is a quiet place to hide away for a break! The resort is very large with very few people there during the...

We stayed there for only one night ( thank god). The rooms are really outdated, the beds are in really bad shape and even the head boards were loose and everytime we move while sleeping you will wake up because of the sound! Service for breakfast just to get coffee was really slow because the waiters were eating or drinking,...
