We stayed here as part of a group. Our room overlooked the square. The hotel has been completely updated and is beautiful. The service was great, the food was good and the location can't be beat! The beds were comfortable and the room has all...More
The hotel is beautifully done in a manner appropriate to its early-20th-century history.
My room (on the upper floor, facing the plaza) had a meticulously appointed bathroom, plus attractive (if a bit too dark and cool) bedroom furnishings, as well as robe and toiletries. The...More
Most definitely the best place to stay in Casco Viejo. The location is unbeatable as well as the charm of the establishment. The corner room on the top floor was just great, very spacious, lots of windows (could use an exterior clean up) and huge...More

I admit I haven't been there in 30 years and I'm sure things have changed, but since no one else has answered in all this time I will take a shot at answering. I took a tour. It left not from PTY, but another smaller... More
I admit I haven't been there in 30 years and I'm sure things have changed, but since no one else has answered in all this time I will take a shot at answering. I took a tour. It left not from PTY, but another smaller airport in town. The plane was very late because it was raining. No way to find out how late it would be because the plane had no radio. It was a very small prop plane with benches instead of seats. Actually there were 4 seats. The pilot had one, I had one the other two were occupied by airmen from Ellsworth Airforce Base in South Dakota. They had flown down a plane for use by our country in their secret war against Noriega. The pilot fiddled with instruments a lot and when we landed the Air Force guy who had sat in the co-pilots seat told us there were no instruments. We landed on wet grass that was over 3 feet high. We then got into an open boat the majority of which was covered by patches. We saw the natives running around in jeans and tshirts but when they spotted us coming they changed in costume and later charged us to take pictures of them. There was a small pool in front of the hotel filled with lobsters. We each picked the one we wanted for lunch. It was one of the best lunches I have ever had. We were supposed to go to another of the islands but it started to rain. Most of usgot back in the broken down boat and the captain pulled out this large tarp that we all held up over our heads. We then boarded our yellow plane and flew back to the city. Some people, including the airmen stayed in the hotel so they could go diving the next day. The hotel was built in the native style and the walls did not go to the ceiling. A very strange adventure, but one I am so glad to have had.
