Reviewed April 23, 2013

I recently went to Panama City and stayed for a night at this hotel. I was very pleased with the service and the hotel. The rooms had a modern decor and were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helped with every need. The hotel provides a free airport shuttle every half hour and wi fi is complimentary. I was also greeted with a compimentary drink( wine). I had contacted the manager via email prior to my trip and he was very responsive to all my questions. I also loved the facilities, they have a beautiful pool area, I really wished I had stayed longer than a night. If you need to stay close to the airport this is defiitely the place to stay!

Hotel near the airport but far away from shoppings and restaurants. It´s ok for the night but don`t recommend to go there if you are planning to stay more time or want to go shopping. Not a 4star.
Rooms all the same, so don´t waste your money paying more for a deluxe room (standard and deluxe are the same). When you arrive to the hotel , they say they don´t have such distinction.
Consider there is no lift in the hotel so if they give you a room in the first floor you have to use the stairs.
The air conditioning in the room is ok but there is no conditioning in the common áreas (only at the lobby). Internet speed is super low. Breakfast buffet is average. Don´t expect an american hot breakfast.

Due to a fog-delayed flight out of Quito, we were stuck in Panama City for the night. I hated to spend $154 USD in added expense at the end of our trip, but this place satisfied our needs. It was a quick ride to the airport via the hotel's free shuttle, and breakfast was included in the price, so we saved a few bucks there.

I prefer traditional, homey, family-run lodging with charm while Riandi was all slick contemporary glass and metal, but it was comfortable with a nice big bed, complimentary vino, on-site restaurant, and attractive pool area. You could pay more for less.

I stayed here on business for one night having flown in late. The hotel is only minutes from the airport and there is a free shuttle bus - so excellent for lay overs and if you need to be by the airport. To me the hotel was pretty much as shown on the internet. It was comfortable to overnight in with a good shower (fixed rainfall shower so not good if you want to keep your hair dry ladies) and a nice pool. Food in the restaurant was so so with a typical hotel premium price.

I wouldn't recommend the hotel for a longer stay but if you need to be near the airport then perfect!

Room Tip: I'd ask for a first floor room if you want to be able to have the curtains open and have some pr...

We stayed at this hotel in April 2013 for one night. Our flight from Cuba to England, via Madrid, was cancelled so we ended up in Panama City for just less than 24 hours in an attempt to get home... The choice to go to this hotel was the silver lining of a very dark cloud! It was amazing - and the perfect choice for people in a similar situation to us.

We booked the hotel on the Internet for just under £100 with a delicious (expansive and great quality) continental breakfast, fast wifi in the room and free shuttles to and from the airport. The shuttle driver, as we landed in Panama, even carried our cases and gave us ice cold bottles of water as we sat down in the air conditioned shuttle bus. The transfer took 5 minutes max. Perfect!

The rooms were very contemporary with massive flat screen tvs and steel on the walls! The shower was excellent with a massive 'rain' shower head, quality toiletries and the towels were super fluffy. Check in was easy and as we checked in so late, they also let us have a 2pm check out the next day at no extra charge. Thank you! There was a gorgeous swimming pool in a tropical setting, perfectly manicured gardens (gardeners were there picking up every single dead leaf!) and you receive a voucher for a free welcome drink in the bar. Service throughout the hotel was unquestionably 5 star and the whole hotel screamed style and quality. I never knew that an airport hotel could be so good! I will never think about them in the same way again! My only improvement would be to heat the jacuzzi ( nestling in the oriental themed gardens near to the pool) as it was quite chilly!! Everything else was so perfect...

We asked the reception desk to organise a driver/taxi for us to enjoy a 2.5 hour city tour (to make the most of our time in Panama City). At their suggestion, Mario showed us the Panama Canal locks, the old and the new part of the city for $80. It was just what we wanted to see the canal/lock and get a taste of the city.

We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. It was fantastic and just perfect. Keep up the great work staff - it was a such a pleasure to stay at your hotel. It reminded us of the quality of a recent stay in Dubai. Well done and thank you!

Room Tip: If you are there longer than one night, then the ground floor room that have direct access to the po...

We spent a Saturday and Sunday here. We were happy to be close to the airport and chose to stay here because its a quick 5 min. They had a free shuttle to the airport running 24 hours a day every half hour. The front desk was English speaking and very helpful and friendly. They got us in straight away and even took our bags to the room. The room was clean and very nice. Bed was super comfy... They had lots of channels to watch and a big clean glass shower. The AC was quiet and worked well which is important in such a hot place. We spent the day at the swim up pool bar. The bartenders were really fun and made us lots of STRONG drinks. They played music all day and we met lots of people. The restaurant at the front is a bit expensive and so we stuck to the Buffett and the pool bar. I would stay here again. For a Panama City lay over its perfect and i would recommend it to ppl of any age. It is also family friendly too.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view and a balcony

We stayed here for our last night after 8 days in Panama, and were pleasantly surprised with the service, the cleanliness, and the extras for a reasonable price. Location for us was important as we had a 5 minute from drive to airport. Check-in was fast and efficient. The room price included 2 complimentary welcome drinks at the bar, shuttle service to the airport, and a lovely breakfast with multiple menu choices. We enjoyed a nice barbecue outside for supper, and the room was spotless boasting big flat screen tv with English as well as Spanish service, a pillow-top mattress and duvet on the bed, a fridge, a safe, walk in shower in addition to all the usual amenities you would find at a high end hotel in the USA. Even a tissue on the the Kleenex box was folded like a rose ! Very creative, and eye pleasing backed up with superb service.
