We had a brief stop here after disembarking from a cruise to find this modern hotel. Our executive room was very large with plenty of storage space. The bathroom had a separate shower, bathtub and toilet area which was spacious as well. With plenty of electric outlets, two phones, and a large desk, one could feel quite comfortable staying here....

Five guys spent the weekend here on the way to Habana, Cuba. We were all quite surprised on the beauty of both the common areas as well as the rooms themselves. Very large, modern and beautiful accommodations. Bathrooms were very large and in wonderful condition. We all considered it a rare find!

We spent 2 nights in the Bristol as our first stop in Panama. It was a fine place to use as a home base in Panama City but we had a few issues with the place that seem to differ from most of the reviews here. First of all, our room was in the "older" tower and had a pretty...

Rooms are well appointed and very spacious. Good location near the waterfront. The restaurant had except food. Delicious soups (we had a lentil and also chicken soup), and fish dishes. I had the bass which was to die for.

We were transferred to this hotel when the hotel we were due to stay in was over-booked. Our initial impression was of a rather staid and over formal establishment. However, over the three days of our stay we were won over by the kindness and genuine warmth of the staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble. There is a great choice...

This stay was part of our cruise. The hotel was very well presented, helpful front desk staff and good amenities. We were there over a weekend so not much happening in the area. There seemed to few eating options. Did eat at the hotel once and were disappointed with one of the dishes (vegetarian ravioli) but more so by the...
