We spent 4 nights and then 1 in this hotel recently ( on way in and out of Panama) in an ocean view suite and a regular room. Suite not worth paying double for btw. Because the hotel has such “ unique” architecture from the outside- the rooms are laid out in a peculiar fashion. There is not a separate bathroom. There is a free standing tub on the floor by the sinks with a shower curtain around it. I am not making that up. The toilet is behind a glass shower door ( when I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night walked into the shower by mistake). There are a lot of angles and wasted dead space in the rooms. The service at the front desk/ concierge is the worst on the planet. Slow check in…they need more help. Some of the people are nice and helpful…others not so much. The “ concierge service” does not answer in a timely fashion if at all . For this reason alone we will never ever return. The pool area was one of the main reasons we selected the hotel. I am not sure why people like the location…there is nothing around here of interest. Anyway…the pool has zero sun after 1130. Completely in the shade. Never coming back. The bed pillows are possibly the worst on the planet earth. They are about 18” high and hard as a rock. I got a stiff neck. On our stay on the way out there was a party group in the room next to ours. They looked very sketchy. The hotel says they have zero tolerance for noise. My husband called the front desk twice after going out to our balcony to ask them ( on the next balcony) to quiet down. I am not sure why a bunch of young guys are hanging around in a hotel room together on Friday night unless they are doing something illegal like - hmm- say drugs? Whatever they were doing they were up bright and early and back at it. We saw them at the pool later…the whole group looked shifty and glad to be gone. The staff at pool was sparse and for the most part indifferent. As a general statement- I am shocked this place was built in 2011. I would have guessed the property to be 30 years old. Needs a facelift.

Dear chichichicago; Our architecture stands out for creating inspiring surroundings due to the attention to detail and the deeper luxury it is based on. Thank you for mentioning our outstanding and iconic infinity pool, it is definitely the favorite spot of our guests to leave richer as it offers an authentic sense of sophistication while still being true to life. We regret to know it was not possible to visit the different and amazing restaurants near our property nor the luxurious mall not so far from us. Once again we thank you for taking the time to comment about your experience, as we JW Marriott Panama believe that each moment of your stay should be personally choreographed to delight and inspire your journey so that you leave richer than when you arrive. Best Regards,

I had a really bad experience checking-in on JW Marriott Panama. First of all, this is a premium hotel, so we expect premium hospitality. The lack of help or at least willingness to help from the desk manager on duty Rodney was bizarre. I have a big family. 4 young kids. From 3 to 10 years old. Upon reservation I requested two bedrooms with two beds, and for us to stay close to each other. What JW Marriott Panama offered me: a room with one bed, and the other one with 2, but 4 floors apart. I asked politely if it was possible to be in the same floor and to arrange 2 bedrooms with 2 beds. They barely tried. Told me that the hotel was full and it was not possible to do anything. To make things worse, they put us even further from each other - but now 9 floors apart. I have young kids for Heaven´s sake. Terrible experience. Never felt so neglected. It was supposed to be a nice vacation, and i hope it does but it all started with a MESS!!!!!!! Your unprofessional desk staff left me with a Bad taste in my mouth Marriott... By the way, the TV in the room 2909 is broken as well.

Comfortable room, nice views, good equipment and horrible service. we had the sea view rooms and they were really nice. very comfortable. However, do not expect good service, especially at breakfast. Breakfast room has a good terrace - the hotel should take advantage of, but instead they direct you inside when there are tables available. You will get tired of waiting for coffee and will pick it yourself. and there are lots of pigeons attacking your food. Pool restaurant only serves lunch, despite wonderful views at night.

Decent rooms in partial need of renovation though still acceptable. Room service is not at the top of the standards (not very motivated staff), however always very nice and polite staff. Perfect location for staying in the city of Panama: shuttle service for Multiplaza Mall available for free every hour. Pool and gym are based at low level and are a pretty clean. Sometimes refurbishment is in need of renovation though. Convenient laundry and deli shop in the building. “Exciting ambiance” for young and adults particularly after 6;30pm. At the seaside of the building there are various top bars and restaurants. I recommend to dine at La Vespa Mare as well as Le Petit Paris for a crêpes or a breakfast, I have found both delicious. Casinò is located at the entrance of the building. In the building you can also find a cigar shop with Cuban cigars and beauty center. Feel safe considering the high level of security. I was many times at this hotel. Will return.

Dear Neosal0000, Thank you for considering our property to be in the perfect location. We believe that a hotel is more than a place to lay your head. That is why each moment of your stay is personally choreographed to delight and inspire your journey. We recommend dining in with us at MASI Restaurant to live the experience between the sea and the fire, and how our hand-picked ingredients create distinctive flavors in each one of our crafted plates. We will be waiting for your next visit to keep bringing you the JW Touch. Thank you for your feedback. Best Regards, Victoria Miguelena Social Media and Events Activator

The reason of 4 stars: Rooms need some renovations though still acceptable and room service is not at the top of the standards (not very motivated staff). Gym and pool are pretty good. Otherwise perfect location: shuttle service for Multiplaza Mall available for free every hour. Convenient laundry and deli shop in the building. During the week vibrant ambiance for young and adults particularly after 6;30pm. Very interesting in the backyard of the building there are various highly appreciated bars and restaurants (I suggest to pay a visit at La Vespa Mare for lunch or dinner as well as Le Petit Paris for a crêpes or breakfasts), I have found them delicious and for Panama standards probably among the best ones. Casinò just at the entrance and all over security at high level. It’s not the first time I have stayed in the hotel and will return.
