Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower

The great advantage of a hotel is that it’s a great refuge from home life.” George Bernard Shaw

I was fortunate enough to spend several days at the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower while entertaining a friend from back home.  Over the course of the four days spent there it truly did become a “refuge”.  The noise and hustle and bustle of Panama City can, at times, be overwhelming.  There is nothing more serene then coming “home” to a peaceful environment.  That is exactly what the Trump delivered.  This 70 story behemoth of a building has been compared to properties in Dubai.  And just like the hotel’s namesake, there certainly was never a dull moment at the Trump.

The structure of the hotel resembles that of a giant sail, if you’ve seen a recent photo of the ever-growing Panama City Skyline, it stands out.  Set in the Punta Pacifica neighborhood of the City the Trump Ocean Club is in the middle of it all.  Just a short drive to most major Panama City destinations, the Trump is the perfect place to stay if you want to be close to the action.

Although the building itself is huge in size there is definitely a warmth about it.  The design is airy and warm.  It’s a nice juxtaposition between the sheer magnitude of the property.  The service and warmth of the staff was absolutely beyond!

The rooms are just lovely.  Ocean views, cozy beds and a spectacular soaking tub right in the center of the room.  Fair warning, the floor plans are very open, if you’re a traveler who needs your privacy then upgrade to one of the suites.

The pools at the Trump are phenomenal.  Breathtaking views that offer photo friendly views every which way you turn.  The energy and vibe surrounding the pool is very chic and hip yet comfortable.  It’s definitely a great place to relax away a day.  Food and drinks are available at the bar and are all moderately priced, $4-6 for a beer, $10-$25 for a snack/entrée.

For those of you interested in hosting your next event at the Trump there are many options.  During my stay there was a lovely wedding that I was warmly welcomed into by the bride and groom.

The Trump Ocean Club was a fantastic addition to what was a great long weekend in the city.  Click through the gallery below to see for yourself what all this fabulous hotel has to offer.
