Andres Felipe Ordoñez, president of Talamare Group, claims that the opening of this hotel is the first step towards the internationalization of its services. As he mention, they chose Panama because of its boom in the sector and in addition for their desire to be measured with the best hotel’s franchises in the world, which are all located in Panama.
