    Grace Hotel, Panama

    Grace Hotel Panama is part of a group owned by the Logothetis Greek shipping family. Its modern entrance announces a 5 star hotel and stepping inside, you are instantly crossing the bridge between the continent’s less salubrious aspects and ultra-high end hospitality.

  • Villa Dumas, Panama

    Villa Dumas, Panama

    This, as the name suggest, is a private, architect-designed villa turned hotel, some 20 minutes from Tokumen airport.

  • Hotel Formentera Playa, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

    Hotel Formentera Playa, Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

    It is marketed – or perhaps reviewed – as one of the more ‘up-scale’ establishments in Puerto Viejo. In reality, it is little more than a guest house. In a relatively-manicured and safe area of Puerto Viejo, Hotel Formentera Playa is one of the hotels marketed towards tourists who ostensibly […]
