How easy is it to get to Panama city or from Hotelany beach areas
"our first room was nr 9. I liked it better then number 4. A fine room but the aircon was to loud. (not a big problem)"
"We have always stayed in rooms at the back of the hotel. Apart from a bit of barking from the dogs next door, we have always found them very quiet."
"Book ahead!"
"rooms on both the main level and one level up - we choose the upper level as it was away from the main meeting area - ask to look at what is available before you choose."
"All rooms are equally comfortable."
US$59 - US$77 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
