“Love the garden”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 via mobile

I stayed after the carnival festivities so the hotel was rather empty. Rooms are just ok. Bathroom in room with two double beds is rather small. The rooms with with king size bed has a better bathroom. The tv was not working properly, but i did not complained about that. Nice things to do. Swimming. Horse riding.

Rating is based solely on misadvertising and lack of empathy for the client. We booked two rooms on the internet for a price of $79 per night (couldn't get this rate on the phone, or with our pensionado). Reviewing the home page of the hotel, it clearly outlined the amenities, including complimentary breakfast. After having our breakfast we were presented with a bill for it. We advised the waiter that, breakfast was included and no further action was taken by the restaurant. When I went to check out, I was advised my bill had an additional charge for breakfast, which we disagreed with. The clerk called for the manager, who basically argued with us,, saying the best rate doesn't include breakfast- even though their home page - which we showed to the manager- said it was a complimentary breakfast. The manager would not budge on his view and we ultimately paid the additional charge, as we had people waiting for us. We also pointed out that their advertising is wrong and should be fixed. When I returned home, I found that they had, in fact, changed their webpage , which proves that the manager was not correct with respect to this charge. That being the case, our decision is never to return to this hotel and will pass on our views to our friends and anyone we talk to. One other point , was that the beds in our room, 221, were sagging and soft, and our sleep was poor.
I will say that the hotel is in a beautiful location and well kept. The staff are very pleasant and helpful in general.

Room Tip: If you go, don't take room 221.

After a great drive up the windy roads to Bambita, we rounded the corner to find this amazing old hotel out in the middle of nowhere. The staff was friendly and professional. We had a huge, very clean room with a King bed and a beautiful balcony that looked out onto a duck and coy pond and the mountainside. The dining room was lovely, the staff very attentive, and the food (local trout and asparagus) was very good. Loved the hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone venturing out that far on their own in Panama.

I stayed there with my family and to me that is one of the few hotels in Panama that hasnt lost its charm. It beautiful and simple. The food was simple but tasty and the service throughout was excellent. Customer service standards in Panama are sadly very low so when you find a place with a great customer service ypu simply dont want to leave. Highly recommend this place in anyone.

I think is a relaxing place to stay, great local staff some of them have been 31 years since the opening which gives this place a sense of belonging... Great pool, great food! Nice to catch your own trucha just in front and have it for dinner! Lovely place for kids! Lots of activities!

The place in which this hotel is located is really beautiful, calm and peaceful.
The gardens are well kept and you can even fish trouts in tanks that are located in front of the hotel.
Despite this, I believe that the bedrooms could be better, sometimes you feel a mould smell. I know the place is very humid, but I think they could do something about it.

My wife and I spent a few nights here on our last trip to Panama and we could not have chosen a better hotel. We were greeted by the manager Raul who was friendly and professional. The room we were given was spacious with new amenities and all the staff were very helpful if we needed anything. The food in the restaurant was really fantastic.

The grounds are covered in beautiful gardens and the hotel is more than acommodating in taking you around town if needed.

Will definitely be going back!!! Highly recommended
