We were there in late January, pool is huge and the temperature was fine. About 25deg C I would guess.

Amazing all around!

We stayed here for 2 nights before leaving Panama and wish we would of stayed here longer.
The bed was out of this world, a real treat. The products in the bathroom and shower are Byredo which is a brand I love and will make you smell like a million bucks. Indulge in the beautiful, heavy bath robe for the full experience!

The staff blew it out of the park with their extraordinary service! Special mention to Ariel, Anthony, Luis, Lourdes, Omar, Jose (Pepe), you were all on the ball, so kind and attentive and made us feel really special during our stay. Thank you!

(Worth mentioning that we also stayed at American Trade hotel during our stay and the service was mediocre, and was a total disappointment)

The location is close to the airport and a rather short (and cheap) Uber ride away from casco antiguo.

Unfortunately we couldn’t use the pool because of the Coronavirus which was probably the biggest disappointment but I know it’s out of their control. We booked this hotel for their facilities so it was a big let down. We walked by the pool and it’s absolutely stunning!

Finally, this isn’t a huge deal but still worth mentioning that there is room for improvement with the food we ordered as room service. We read rave reviews about the restaurant food, and because of the COVID outbreak, we figured we would eat in. The food was nothing special, certainly nothing worth justifying the price.

Overall I still rate this hotel a 5/5*. It was the perfect way to end our trip, thanks again <3

Santa Maria is a truly relaxing place to stay. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the staff are friendly and attentive and the F&B are great. Not far from downtown and the airport. The grounds and the pool area are a great place to spend time too.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 24 hours at this beautiful hotel ( which is close to the airport). The staff, rooms, pool, restaurants and spa are all amazing. A special thanks to the excellent service at the hotel restaurant Mesitzo - Nelson and Anthony / dinner and Yanira Ulimar/ breakfast.

My room was amazing. The entire facility and staff was amazing. I will stay there again. The fitness center was excellent and I used it while was there. I enjoyed my meals and room service. My guest and made a special request for lunch and the meal was above board. I enjoyed the pool and a great round of golf. My stay was the best. What else can I stay. Having the bed turned 0 and the slippers waiting was very nice. The bed was more than comfortable I slept well and rose feeling rejuvenated. The facility is beautiful.

Service, interior, food and surroundings are all amazing! A perfect hotel (close to the airport) if you like to relax by the pool, play golf or enjoy a massage at the spa. Specially the level of service is extremely high.
