The reception staff was very pleasant, especially the young man who checked us in who was also helpful to us personally, I believe his name was Alguino or Algernon (sorry about inaccurate spelling) but the reception staff are literally sitting behind bars which made you feel like you were walking into a prison. Nice hardwood floors everywhere but the hotel is just so tired looking. The room was clean and fresh every day but absolutely barren. No coffee maker, not even a clock in the room. For $105 a night we would have expected more. The included breakfast was very basic and the same every morning. Juice, cold cereal, bread, a toaster, some sliced cheese and ham and some fruit. Coffee was good but its good everywhere in Panama. But we went there to scuba dive and the diveshop was very close so the location worked for us.

Built in 1905, it is considered one of the oldest buildings in the area. We offer the 18 most spacious and comfortable rooms, all of them with A/C, WI-Fi connection, Cable TV, safety boxes and private bathroom with hot shower. ... more less
