“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

I was surprised just how nice the hotel was. The room was very large and very clean. Bed was very comfortable and we slept great. Nice little kitchen in the room. Cleaning lady was really nice. There was a full breakfast which was a good selection and was pretty good. It wasn't always hot. The daytime staff on the front desk weren't the friendliest but we found the night time staff very friendly. Someone always there to open the door as you came in or left. The pool was nice and very well maintained. The street the hotel is on was dirty, but this is how it is in pretty much all of Panama City; no fault of the hotel. We would have liked to be closer to the mall but we walked one day - took about 35 mins. For the price, this was a good deal for sure

I have nothing but good to say about this hotel. The staff are all great. I don't speak spanish at all, but it wasn't a problem they mostly all spoke some English. The suites are huge including a full kitchen, for those who wanted to cook instead of going out to eat. The rooftop area and pool offered a great place to relax in the evening. I was there on my birthday and the hotel staff bought me a bottle of wine!! Great great great hotel.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor. There is quite a bit of traffic on the street all time time

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel and I find it hard to fault. The rooms were very large and felt more like a studio apartment than a hotel room. Excellent kitchen facilities with a full function oven, couch, dining table, and very large king bed. Breakfast is standard but enjoyable with a selection of hot and cold items, the dining area is a bit bland though and lacks some character. The roof top pool is a great feature and I used it every day. The gym equipment needs to be updated as it is getting old. I made use of the laundry facilities also which is $1 for a wash and $1 for dry cycle. The location is also good, as Panama City kind of doesn't have a central city area as such so you need to catch cabs to most places anyways.
Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The king rooms are excellent.

We really couldn't have been happier. The room was clean and spacious. Since we were staying 8 days, I wanted a full kitchen and it had everything I needed. When we wanted to eat out it is located close to some great restaurants. The breakfasts were wonderful. It felt good to be able to escape to the peaceful roof top pool after sight seeing all day. The real star of this hotel was the staff. They were consistently friendly, competent and helpful.

We chose Coral Suites based on Trip Advisor reviews and the web site and we were not disappointed. We wanted to stay a couple of nights in downtown Panama City to try some restaurants and walk to museums. It is really set up for the business traveler with kitchen which we did not take advantage of - but keep this in mind. Breakfast was on the mark - lots of choice- and good restaurants close by. We had no problem with noise during our stay and found staff to be very helpful. We enjoyed the rooftop pool and view also.

Room Tip: Stick to the middle.

We stayed here for six nights whilst organizing the shipment of our car to Ecuador. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They recommended some very good places to visit and eat out. After being on the road for the last six months it was wonderful to be able to unpack, buy food and do some cooking. The hotel has excellent facilities: a roof top pool, gym and laundry room. They will do your laundry if you wish. The extensive breakfast buffet is included in the price.

We're here over New Year and saw 2013 in with fellow guests by the pool, watching the fireworks over Panama City. Although not like being at home, it was the next best thing.

Room Tip: All suites have a small kitchenette, but we chose a more comprehensive kitchen. We stayed on the 5t...

Reading the reviews it depends what you expect from a hotel. I usually stay in 4 star hotels that are booked for me when I travel on business so my expectations and comments will not be relevant to people who usually stay in apartments. It has taken me some time to get around to writing the review as I stayed here in late November 2012 but I will be honest with my comments from my point of view.

The staff were very friendly and helped with any query that I had. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom small but adequate with clean towels and soap and shampoo provided. They have Wi Fi in the room but in the room that I was in it would only connect in 1 spot in the room.

I did not like the tiled floors as the noise seems to echo in the hotel, one night there was a family with children in the hotel and at 11PM they were in the corridor, not I stress being unruly just a normal family but the noise did seem to be louder with the tiled floors.

The kitchen seemed to be all you would need if you were staying in and cooking but as I ate out every night it was of no use to me. The refrigerator was large but noisy; I had to turn it off every night as it woke me up.

The rooftop pool was good but with only a limited number of sun lounges available. This was not a concern during my stay as in my 3 days I only saw 1 other person at the pool, I went to the pool every night between 4 to 5.30 with 2 cans of Larger purchased from a local supermarket. A good way to relax after a day at work.

I found the area to be very safe with no safety concerns and very near to a number of restaurants.

The breakfast did not start until 07.00 and as I was usually picked up from the hotel at 06.15 I only sampled 1 breakfast, all I can say it was nothing outstanding but edible.

If you are staying here you have nothing to worry about. As the saying goes you get what it says on the tin, it is all down to your level of expectation and what type of hotel you normally stay in.
