Tantalo Hotel / Kitchen / Roofbar
Ranked #32 of 116 Hotels in Panama City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2012

As soon as I walked in to Tantalo I knew I had chosen wisely. The restaurant and bar on the first floor was buzzing with energy and music. The food there would satisfy even the most discerning appetites. In addition to the concerned and helpful staff the hotel is a work of art, literally. The living wall, hip lighting and artist inspired rooms constantly reminded me that I was in a special place. In the evening the roof top bar was a who's who on Panama City! The spectacular views, friendly locals and great vibes made the roof top bar an excellent spot to relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Each room has its own character as different artists made each one into an art piece. I'll have to ask management where they purchased the beds as I slept better there then in my own bed at home. If you are planning a trip to Panama City the Tantalo Hotel is a MUST STAY! I am looking forward to staying there again soon. Best of luck and adventurous travels.

The hotel recently opened and literally is the best place to stay in Panama City right now! The staff is unbelievably friendly, literally going out of their way to accomodate every wish. The rooftop bar is currently the best spot in town for nightlife, with spectacular views and a good looking crowd. I can only recommend you to stay there or at least check out their scene at night. Absolute top pick for 2012!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors can be noisier than others as they are right below the rooftop bar (more l...

Loved my time at Tantalo! I felt right at home at this boutique hotel, located right smack in the middle of architectural and historic treasures. My experience was a mix of all I would want in a vacation. Amazing night sleep in the most comfy beds, dancing to hot grooves on the rooftop with the warm, Panamanian breeze kissing your skin, eating exquisite cuisine with local, fresh flavors, and being immersed in Panamanian culture. I went jogging down the promenade on the Pacific just steps from Tantalo, stopped off at the local fish market for some jaw-dropping ceviche and corvina fish, and basked in the sun. The service was impeccable. So friendly, attentive, and warm. I was amazed at how much they truly cared about their new hotel and how proud they were to work there. It felt like joining a family at Tantalo! I highly recommend this little gem.

Casco Viejo is by far the coolest part of Panama City, making Tantalo's location absolutely perfect. The roofdeck is the crown jewel of the hotel, with a fun but not overwhelming party atmosphere and amazing views of the city. Despite the fun roofdeck, the noise didn't carry into my room when I wanted to crash.

All in all, a fantastic find in Panama City.

Fun-artistic-modern-chic hotel in the middle of old world charm, complete with deliciously creative cuisine and flirtatious cocktails. Friendly and warm staff. Very comfy bed that was appreciated after dancing all night on the roof! (sensational view up there!)
