    My husband and I stayed here from July 24 to 31 and we had a relaxing time. Breakfast was truly an amazing assortment of everything you could imagine, from fresh fruits and juices to cereals and yogurt, muffins, eggs and bacon, rice and tacos and all kinds of cheeses and breads and spreads and meats and more. I think "wow"... More

    From the very beginning, we were impressed by the beautiful lobby and courteous, friendly staff. We accidentally left a bag in the taxi we'd taken from the airport, and the staff immediately called the driver who returned right away (I had gotten the driver's card). The rooms were gorgeous and comfortable with a great view, and room service was terrific.... More

    We spent a night at Riu Plaza after our flight with Copa Airlines was cancelled. It is a huge hotel, very comfortable rooms and sure the best hotel bed I ever had. The decoration exaggerates a little in the orange color, but this is just a detail. Breakfast is great, with an incredible variety of fruit, juices and hot food.... More

    I moved here and spent 57 nights with my Wife. Being a business traveller I visit Panama 2 times a year. I was well received and after a week or so I was upgraded to a suite. It was very comfortable and well designed. Above all the staff was all very helpful and speak English. The senior management headed by... More

    My daughter and I spent 4 nights at this hotel in June. We liked everything about the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The front desk people spoke English, which is good because we didn't speak any Spanish. The breakfast buffet was free and had everything you could think of, including made to order omelets and breakfast sandwiches.... More

    This is a huge hotel (34 floors) in the middle of Panama City's financial district. We had an "executive" room on the 33rd floor, spectacular views guaranteed. Room is large, so is the bed (very comfortable), everything works, all the usual amenities incl. bathrobes, body lotion and some free soft drinks and beers in the mini bar. Cosmetics are nice...

    Stayed one night in this ultra over the top art hotel in the financial district. Very reasonable price when combined w airfare. Super breakfast included, with healthy and much varied menu. I have never seen such a generous buffet! Beautiful pool and clean, later room for us w separate,are twin beds. Very nice after a week on the jungle!
