Opened in July 2012, this oceanfront property is the first Trump hotel in Latin America, filling the top 20 floors of a mixed-use tower that resembles a butterfly. Public areas showcase large bold sculptures and fixtures, and use local materials such as Gatun Lake woods, coconut fiber, and silk. Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, glass-wall-enclosed bathrooms, Scandinavian-style light wood finishes and furnishings, and oceanview balconies. Tejas serves traditional seafood dishes with contemporary innovations, while BARcelona does tapas. “Because the hotel was brand-new, the service was definitely subpar. It was the only element that was missing.” A private island beach club is under construction and will open in mid-2013.
