I stayed here by accident, but it was a lovely hotel. Copa airlines was late, late, late and caused dozens of passengers to miss their connecting flights. No one could fly out until the following morning, so they booked us all here. I was surprised at how far it was from the airport, it took about half an hour, but... More

By far one of the best hotels I've been in. Stayed at the 21st floor. Great staff and service. The food was delicious and vary. Clean and big rooms. The pool was nice and quiet with a great atmosphere. Location is good and center. Not more then 5 min to get anywhere in town.

After a 5day stay at the Riu Playa Blanca, my partner and I stayed two nights at the Riu Plaza Hotel in Panama City from 8/28 – 8/30. The hotel is very modern and clean centrally located in Panama City, close taxi drive to Old Panama (Casco Viejo), the Canal, and the malls. It is walking distance from Calle Uruguay... More

I was here for a conference and that was well organized. Although the water provided had more similarities with tap water than drinking water. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The mini bar contains only a bottle of water and. There is a shop downstairs selling a kind of food and drinks at "mini bar price" levels. Better... More

The breakfast itself oozed cheap package holiday... Nothing stood... More
