About John Spencer

I am an American citizen and a Permanent Resident of Panama. I love Panama and decided to make it my next home. I invested in the hotel way back before it was built. I am great friends with the hotel's owner and the staff. I work very hard to make each guest's stay fantastic. VRBO is a new site for me (recently switched from a different service), so I don't have reviews, yet. Had consistent great ones on the other service.

I really enjoy hosting. You will find me to be responsive and attentive to your traveling needs.

John Spencer purchased this hotel in 2006

Awesome experience and location

  • 5 of 5

The hotel has everything and the service is spectacular. We loved the location and spent many nights in Casca Viejo for dinners. It is just a $5 Uber trip. There is an adjacent mall which was an added convenience. We highly recommend the property. The owner was great to deal with in every way!

It's the Hard Rock

  • 3 of 5

Classic Hard Rock, music and memorabilia. Checkin and out and use of all the hotel features and services, at much lower prices. Easy booking, no issue at checkin and the whole HomeAway side functioned smoothly. It is in the centre of Panama City and easy to get to all the places one would want to go to, but everything close by including taxi's charge higher prices and not necessarily higher quality.

Is it a 5 star, well no not really and as I had problems with the room and housekeeping, clogged drain, squeaky extractor fan (repaired quickly, but left a mess), insufficient towels and patchy cleaning, as soon as they realised I had not booked through the hotel, their attitude sunk to a 3 star. Disappointed with the hotel.

But at that price and with the pool/gym and restaurants/clubs it is worth the money

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, So sorry you had some trouble with housekeeping. I have spoken with the hotel management and don't expect these issues in the future. Thanks for mentioning this as it will benefit future guests. So glad that you enjoyed the other wonderful features of the hotel and I will continue to offer a great rate. Would love to have yo stay again. Best, John
