David Hotel Iberia

Ok, here we are at Hotel Iberia. I have eaten at their restaurant many times. I like the Cuban sandwich.

Here is the hotels brochure.


NOTE: Verify all rates prior to check in. The rates quoted below are a best effort by me to get rates.

The prices here are $27,30, $33.00, and $41.80.

Note that Hotel Iberia has opened a second hotel, which is around the corner and down the street. It is called Hotel Iberia Sur.

For other David hotels go here.

David Hotel Gran Nacional

UPDATE: The current web page for the hotel can found at http://hotelnacionalpanama.com/. It reflects the current rates.

The Internet charge is $6.30 per hour. They should give you a mixed drink along with your hour on the Internet. I personally think that is crazy. A hotel like this should provide the Internet for free.

It was like going to Fort Knox to get permission to take the following photos, but I was provided a nice escort to assist me in taking whatever I wanted.

This hotel also has one of the best buffets in town. It is $6.50 week days and more on Sunday.

At night this area serves some nice barbeque dinners.

Here is the pool area.

And the Lobby.

David Hotel Panama Rey

***UPDATE*** Hotel Panama Rey is under new management and being remodeled. Everything below no longer exists, but I am leaving it as I think the photos from the top floor are still nice.

This nice lady assisted me with the prices, which are $22.00 for the basic. $24.00 for what they call a mini suite – it has an icebox, and $35 for suite+ it has a king-size bed and a Jacuzzi tub.

While I have never stayed in this hotel, I know the owners/operators very well. I have eaten many times at their next-door restaurant (Don Sui). These are some of the friendliest folks I have met here in David.

As I was getting ready to leave, I was asked if I would like to see David from the city’s highest point (the top of the hotel). We road the elevator to the top floor and got out. This floor is ready to be turned into two some of the best restaurants in David. The view is great.

Here are some photos from that elevation.

Here is a shot of the Volcán Barú.
