After having read all the positive reviews on the tripadvisor site we chose this hotel for a three day stay in El Valle. Unfortunately it was a rather disappointing experience: The room we stayed in was wet and damp, electricity was cut off every morning, on our way to any of the hotel buildings we got wet when it rained, the water in the jacuzzi was so hot we couldn't use it, there was no cold water pool for the sauna, the rest area in the "spa" was completely wet after rain, the "O'Pedro - Irish pub" (it's called O'Pedro because the hotel owner's name is Pedro and his grandmother was from Ireland) hs got nothing to do with an Irish pub (except for canned Guinness and some Irish whiskey), the menu in the pub was erroneous, the staff, although helpful and friendly, did not have the slightest idea of what a pub is like, breakfasts were inconsistent etc etc.
The swimming pool doesn't seem to have been finished - it was all concrete, but we were told that this is best against the high humidity - I doubt this strongly !
The "La Casa de Lourdes" - restaurant was a terrible disappointment as well. Being described as one of the best restaurants in Panama, the food was nice but nothing special, and when we asked for an aperitif we were offered beer !!!More
