          I made a mistake making my reservation and accidentally doubled it. I reached out right away and was charged double anyways. I am really disappointed a hotel of this caliber would have such poor customer care.

          This is a highlight of every trip to Panama. The staff, food and rooms are fantastic. It's my home away from home. The spa is a must try for every guest. One of the best massages I have had in a long time.

          The hotel has the best location in the heart of the banking district, close to great restaurants and shopping malls. They have the most helpful hotel staff. The rooms are clean and tidy. The rooms are great to arrange business meetings.
