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

My room was large with a very comfortable bed and the buffet breakfast...very good assortment in a huge room. Lots of fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals as well as cooked items: omelettes, Eggs Benedict, etc. Very nice pool. Great for business travel.

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!
