About the property

Your best value. A full-service hotel room owned privately, rented directly

Enjoy this 5-star rock-music theme Megapolis hotel with sea view located along Ave. Balboa. First-class amenities include spa, gym, spectacular pool, 6 restaurants, 2 nightclubs, 5 bars, room works. Book direct with the OWNER and $SAVE$

You may wonder how I own a first-class hotel room in a famous ROCK-MUSIC hotel (the brand is disclosed upon email inquiry). I own 2. They have exactly the same bedding, décor, amenities and hotel privileges as the hotel's regular rooms. Cheaper.

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

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
