Hostal Nicolas de Ovando–M Gallery Collection Review

This historic boutique hotel, which is owned by the Accor group, was sculpted from the residence of the first governor of the Americas, and it just might be the best thing to happen in the Zone since Diego Columbus's palace was finished in 1517. Colonial rooms have canopied queen-size beds, tall ceilings, original stone window benches, and shutters. Some guests prefer the sunny (smaller) rooms in the contemporary annex; with river views, these are smart examples of French minimalist style. Overlooking the river, trees and tropical plantings shade the pool, and swimmers leave the sun for a fitness break in the gym. The bar is a social scene, particularly at cocktail hour. Special rates are available for cruise-ship passengers who want a pre- or post-stay.
