We found the management at La Cresta Inn to be very helpful. The room was comfortable and our mascota was welcome. We are returning for another week as the location suits us. There are a number of restaurants nearby offering a variety of cuisines.

The receptionist first sent us to a room that was dirty and unmade bed. Second room reeked of mildew, cheap polyester sheet, and dirty bathroom. Unfriendly staff. Breakfast was a joke. If you was a good hotel you will have to pay top dollars. In Panama they don't believe in customer service. Oh and dont trust the pillow...full of mold...

Appreciated the accommodation of early check in (in a.m.instead of after 3 p.m. as per Expedia reservation). Not a fan of poorly cleaned bathroom - debris/hair on floor including in shower.
