    This hotel bends over backwards to give guests a great resort experience, and as you swim across the massive pool and up to the bar, where you order a margarita, and then splash away, it's hard to feel anything but relaxed and pampered. The rooms are large and the beds are cushy. There's enough good restaurants in this hotel to keep a small city fed for a week, including one that's open 24 hours. There's a gym with several machines in it to help you burn off all that luxury, if you want. What's cool is this resort oasis is smack in downtown Panama City – walk out your door and you're in the rapidly beating heart of the financial district, with restaurants, casinos and bars galore. We did have one kind of annoying interaction with an overly rule-oriented security guard, but everyone else we talked to was lovely.

    If you ever want to live out a mobster fantasy where you are treated like a "made" person, El Panama is an excellent choice for a backdrop. From the moment you approach the front door, everything from the decor to the staff treat you ​as if you could be a boss like Meyer Lansky. The pool out back is absolutely enormous with a swim up bar, sushi lounge and barbeque station. The hotel also provides a gym, a full service restaurant, inside bar and very attentive staff. A standard room runs $260 and includes wifi or you could opt to use the in-house business center.
