          Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Panama City

          Nice hotel, good location, great amenities

          from

          Like a lot of other folks, I'd say this 5-star hotel would be a 4-star in other parts of the world. However, I really enjoyed its amenities--nice gym (important to me), good concierges, clean room, and a really good restaurant that wasn't overpriced.

          The one thing that surprised me a bit was the lack of English-speaking workers in the hotel, given that it was supposed to be a top-notch business hotel in the country's capital. I don't mean that everyone in the world should speak my language; however,I have noticed that, in many other country capitals, the nice business hotels have staffmembers who speak fluent English.

          The location was nice and felt safe. We hired a cab driver to take us through the city, and asked him for a good restaurant recommendation at the end. He dropped us off at a restaurant a couple blocks away from the hotel, told us "don't worry, it's safe." I felt very safe in the area.

          Downsides? Well, it's not on the water if that's important to you, and, like I mentioned before, you can't just assume that you can get by on English.

          Would I go there again? Yes.

          Elegant but not stuffy

          from

          I had stayed at this hotel before when it was a Marriott brand. This hotel has a great view of the city and the lobby is very inviting. A wonderful band was playing or maybe it was a small "Fiesta" in the lobby upon our arrival and the painting across from the registration desk was incredible.

          The food is excellant and the price was very affordable. We received an upgrade and it was worth the request. The casino in the hotel is the best little casino I have ever been to period! We will return to this favorite spot in Panama City. The staff was great and service was outstanding. The kids loved the pool and the grounds were well kept.

          Great Stay.

          Big disappointment!

          from

          I wish that I would have consulted this site before I booked this hotel! It is not in a convenient location and not worth the $ that I pd. I pd extra to be on the club floor and that had some redeeming factors but, that's it. The concierge in the club was very helpful in giving out information and the breakfast and tidbits in the eve were okay. I requested a room higher up for the view but the windows were so dirty you could barely enjoy any view!! IMO this is NOT what I would consider a 5* hotel. I'd give it 4*s at the most and that's because of the size of the rooms, casino, shops, tennis court, etc.

          Caesar Park Hotel

          from

          Had a Wonderful time in Panama-Caesars-we (husband andI) Loved the pool,gym,casino,bar-lounge. The staff were great-a busier hotel-but if you like people-thats a good thing. Rooms are fine-couldn't complain. We also stayed at Intercontintal-Marrimar. (thought we would get a variety to see which is better). Even though the staff were wxcellent at IM - we just felt more comfortable and more well rounded at Caesars.

          We spent a week at Tropic Star (a fishing lodge) By far - First Class opperation. If you ever feel like bill fishing- run.

          Not a luxury hotel

          from

          Although it's a perfectly satisfactory lodging in some respects, the Caesar Park can't be described as a luxury hotel, and certainly not a 5-star one. Consider what your priorities are before booking this hotel. The rooms are large enough, and clean, but the furniture in ours was chipped and tacky. The decor throughout the hotel is second-rate. Service is spotty. Although the poolside bar and grill had waiters in attendance, none ever offered us a menu or asked for a drink order. On the plus side, the pool is nice, and set in a pretty garden. We had some excellent food at the hotel restaurants. If your main requirements for a hotel are reasonable comfort, good food, and a pool, then you might not be disappointed with the Caesar Park. But if you value elegance, quality, and a high level of service, stay at the Bristol. For a few dollars more, it's easily five times better.

          Not pleasant

          from

          Checked in mid-day - next to construction and the sound of a vibrating drill. The walls are paper thin, the bathrooms poorly lit. You can hear your neighbors' every move. the breakfast buffet is typical panamanian food, heavy on the sauces and meats, and light on tropical fruits. The help in the lobby is over-staffed, with their hands out all the time. Best advice is to avoid this place if you can.

          Best for tennis, food and friendly service

          from

          My family stayed at the Caesar Park in December for four days. We came because of the great tennis facilities and we were not disappointed. This is the only place to stay in Panama City if you like to play tennis. There are three lighted courts (and the lights worked very well - which is not true of some of the other hotels with tennis courts in the city). The court surface looked new - again elsewhere we have seen very worn surfaces. It was easy to book courts - we played morning and evening, and we met several local players as there is a small club that uses the courts.

          My two boys (6 and 8) loved the pool as well as the tennis. It is huge with a nice shallow area for small kids. They also loved the giant bird cage/zoo and the small playground.

          We got a warm reception from all the staff at Caesar Park. The first person we met was our Bellmen Raymond and Jimmy, they was very friendly and later they told us about a great restaurant two blocks from the hotel Lar Jarana. There we got great food at very reasonable prices from owner David Sakata and his family. Mauro at the reception desk gave us a warm welcome by upgrading us to a terrific room with a great view on the 11th floor. The room was not fancy as some of the other high priced hotels in Panama City, but it was very clean - the beds were very comfortable and the service in the Executive Lounge (an upgrade that is work every penny) was awesome.

          The hotel has wireless internet for a very reasonable fee. When we had a little trouble Pedro was able to fix the problem immediately. Phone calls are expensive at all Panama hotels but cheap if you use a pay phone. Remember to get a Cable and Wireless card at one of the stores in the hotel.

          The food at the hotel was all very good. Our kids loved the fresh cookies for a quarter at the Bakery. We ate at the hotel more often then going out because it was so good an reasonable. Other helpful staff at the hotel were Yovana, Pablo, Louis, Iris, and Alavco the tree cutter.

          Overall you can not beat Caesar Park, luxury, great for food, service, swimming, kids and tennis yet only a ten minutes from downtown.

          Overcharged my credit card

          from

          I stayed at this hotel in March 2004 and I was disgusted that 8 months after leaving the hotel they debited my credit card for a further charge $340.50 for a telephone call. I am disputing this and if it is not resoved I will not stay at any Caesar Park hotels again.

          Not five star hotel

          from

          We recently stayed at the Ceasar Park Hotel after reading that it was a five star hotel that visiting diplomats have stayed at. We were very disappointed. The public areas - lobby, restaurants, pool are nice but the rooms (we stayed in two different rooms) were equvialent to a Hampton or Drury Inn in the states. This isn't bad if you plan on staying and paying for a budget room, but very disappointing if you planned on staying at a luxury hotel. The rooms were small, the linens, towels and bath products were very basic and average in quality. I would not stay here again unless the rate was very low - $45 or $50 per night (rather than $100). The location is also farther out from the city center than we would have liked. One positive note is that all of the restuarant food was delicious and well prepared.

          Comfy and well-located

          from

          We stayed at the Caesar Park in Panama City last December...at first glimpse, our room furniture looked a little worn, and the shower plumbing worked slowly...but many amenities at the Caesar Park made up for it, particularly the level of service, and the beautiful grounds.

          Our daughter was charmed by the tropical grotto, with a mini-zoo and play area. We enjoyed drinks by the pool, and music and dancing in the casino nightly. We found great food within walking distance of the hotel...just ask the doorman for suggestions. (Word of warning...never assume that pedestrians have the right of way in Panama, even if they would in the U.S.) Our memories of the Caesar Park are of luxury and comfort.

We didn't really have time to explore which was a shame as there is some nice walks, waterfalls, a national park and petroglyphs. Instead we went to find breakfast and ended up making French toast at the hostel. Following breakfast we caught a bus back to the city for some shopping at the huge mall by ...

As we had already spent almost 3 weeks in Guatemala time was also an issue, as we wanted to be on a boat to Colombia by the end of July. Therefore regretfully we had to skip Honduras and focused on Nicaragua instead, where most places of interest do not deviate too far from the panamerican highway, which runs along the ...
