“Disappointed”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

For a new property this hotel was a disappointing. The rooms are spartan, no hair dryer and no in-room coffee. The quality of construction workmanship is poor and damaged materials are left unrepaired. The rooms and halls were not clean and on the night we stayed there the noise from outside was unbearable.

Located on the edge of the city centre this modern hotel is easy to find, with plenty of parking. Rooms are set around the pool and the price is very acceptable for a clean room with air-con and basic needs, but no fridge. The restaurant offers simple food. Shortly after checking into the room a housekeeping supervisor came to ask if the room was OK and if we needed anything. A very nice touch for a simple hotel. The only drawback could be noise. The wall construction does allow a little sound from your neighbour; the bar does like loud music and did not look inviting, so avoid any room above or adjacent to it. There is also a pool bar, so I guess that if the place is busy it could be very noisy. The alternative is the road side, this I would suggest is definitely to be avoided. Certainly value for money.

We stayed over night in Chitre on our way to Pedasi. We were not sure we could find a place to stay in Pedasi that late on a weekend so played it safe and stopped in Chitre. The hotel staff at the front desk was very helpful and spoke English very well. We wanted a quiet room away from the road and on the top level and they accommodated by upgrading us to a king suite at no extra cost. The room had a nice balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool. The room was very comfortable and clean and the air conditioning worked well. Breakfast was included and we sat outside by the pool. The food was very good and the service adequate. Staying here turned out to be a delightful change in our plans.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road and the adjacent bar

“Azuero” gran hotel – next to the mall, $115 for 4pp room with awesome pool, breakfast, gym and even spa facilities. Next to it is “Versalles” for $100 but is very basic, old, with pool, no breakfast. “Azuero” is 100% better. Cheap option is hotel “Hawai” for $40 for 2 pp room ($56 for 4 pp room) but not nice at all. It is more like a hostel. There is no beach in the city. The best option is to stop by Santa Clara or San Carlos (el Palmer beach) if you are going back to Panama city.

Room Tip: Ask for one with the balcony looking over the pool

I think this is the best hotel in Chitre. From check-in to check-out the service was wonderful. The rooms and beds were clean and very comfortable. The included breakfast is very complete and has a variety of choices. I had the NYE buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was incredible, with panamanian dishes as well as the traditional ham and turkey. The waiters were always checking to see if we needed anything else. I also recommend the restaurant right next door called "El Anzuelo", delicious seafood! Will stay here next time, no doubt about it. The only thing that could be improved is that there was not a lot of hot water in the shower in the afternoons, but didn't have this problem during the mornings and nights.

The atmosphere is very appealing. For a long time The City of Chitre was waiting for a place like this. The restaurant in the area by the pool was created to have a good time given the effort to keep the gardens manicured and the lighting of the place in an appropriate tone. But these advantages are overshadowed by some details impossible to ignore and very easy to correct: a) The noise from the adjacent bar and b) The lack of attention of those who served the food. The waiting time between dishes and drinks when ordered were too long.
The courtesy of those working in this hotel are good, the price of dinner and drinks are appropriate.
Hopefully these small errors will be corrected and this place turns out to be more in line with its pleasant structure.
Thank you.
