The breakfast buffet is bar non the best I have ever had. Didn't need lunch. Huge huge huge. The room were clean and well appointed. We opted for the crown rooms, 21st floor and above. more but worth it as you got to go into the crown lounge on main floor. There you get good snacks, bottled water, cokes, etc... More

We stayed here for our last night in Panama, having spent nearly 2 weeks in Bocas Del Toro. This hotel on arrival speaks for itself, very grand in appearance. The check in was very quick, easy and the staff were articulate, and spoke good English, which was very helpful. The man who checked us in, even called to find out... More

We attended a conference here and got the special rate that included breakfast. We also noticed 2 weddings going on so it seems popular with the locals as well. The room was attractive, clean, and spacious. It had a bathtub which seems to be quite rare these days and I made full use of it. There is a free mini... More

Attended a conference held here for four days. Great location to investigate the city and to use a the base for tours. Short walks to prime restaurants, parks, bay and shopping/malls. Extremely friendly staff ready to assist and language is not a barrier. Probably the best breakfast buffet I have ever had! The rooms are smartly decorated in vivid colors,... More

I stayed here for a conference for five nights. The room was spacious with two double beds, a sitting area and desk for work. Great shower with bath. The room was nicely decorated with modern decor. The restaurant facilities were good with a large selection of food types at both breakfast and lunch buffets. The swimming pool and the surrounding... More

I think I am a fussy sleeper and this hotel was great. Its very big, over 500 rooms but you don't feel it being crowded. The rooms are very pretty - some green some purple. Beds super comfy - great view on the city if you get a high floor room. Its a tall skyscrapper with about 30 floors. We... More

I have written directly to the Riu & not received a reply, I hope they respond to this review! On your website you advertise rooms starting from $75/night every weekend. Yet when I click on the promo & fill in my weekend dates, that deal does not show up! Please either validate your promotion or remove it from your site.
