Editor’s Review of The Santa Maria, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Golf Resort
Upon entering The Santa Maria, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Golf Resort -- which made its debut in 2018 -- "family-friendly" may not be the term that comes to mind. This is a brand-new, five-star hotel in Panama City, after all.
Look past the ultra-luxurious lobby and surrounds, however, and you'll discover a city hotel (which feels more like a resort) that's perfect for families, with features including a complimentary buffet breakfast and stunning pool complex. Family amenities also include childcare services and a Family Excursions package that covers spacious accommodations, a welcome amenity for kids, in-room breakfast, and late check-out (3 p.m.) on the day of your departure. Another family-friendly amenity?
Budget-friendliness. You'll find rates for under $200 USD per night depending on the time of year you visit! The hotel doesn't charge any resort fees, either.
That's a reasonable price to pay for a centrally located hotel that also features a Jack Niklaus-designed golf course with a clubhouse, a fitness center, a lovely spa, several onsite restaurants, and comfortable, kid-friendly accommodations. less
