“if you are Euro trash - you may not like this hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Date of stay:12-10-2013
It never ceases to amaze me of what makes people satisfied with a hotel stay! If you have a "European" need for a special type of FREE breakfast-maybe this place is not for you! For the rest of us, the scrabbled eggs, sausage, cereal, local fresh fruit etc is a nice touch before catching our plane.
Since it's renovation last year this is a great place to spend your first or last night in Panama. Ultra modern rooms! We loved the showers! My grand children (9 & 8) loved the pool and the free use of the rafts furnished by the hotel. My son and daughter in law enjoyed the swim up bar in the evening as I took care of the kids. Very romantic music played over a great sound system! I even won $100.00 in the casino! Listen folks-this country is transforming. A tip of 25 cents to your bellman ain't going to cut it! If you are respectful to these folks at this hotel they will do ANYTHING to make your stay a good one. Treat them as your servants and you will probably get what you deserve!

Room Tip: The front desk folks speak English, but really like it if you at least try to speak Spanish. The poo...

It's not often I sing the praises of an airport hotel (seriously, who does?), but the Riande Aeropuerto is a pleasant exception to the rule.
The facilities are varied and interesting, the staff is cheerful and helpful.
It is an oasis in the desert of hotel mediocrity.

Every time I have a late flight, in or an early flight out of Tocumen airport I am sure to stay at the Riande Aeropuerto. It has impressed me so much that I will even seek out their downtown Panama hotel (and I never normally stay dowtown) just to check it out.

Well done!

Andrew K.

We stayed for one night, nice hotel, and accommodations, good breakfast, but need improvement on the shuttle pick up service, do not wait for the shuttle to come, call them up, otherwise you would be forever waiting for it to come,

The Hotel is more like a resort. It has everything from a good restaurant to casino. The free shuttle to and from the airport is a real plus, especially for those early morning flights. The downside is the WIFI is terrible mostly works in public places. The rooms are good size, facilities modern and the staff while helpful have limited English speaking skills..So bring your limited Spanish and it will work just fine.

Room Tip: For best WIFI ask for a room closer to the lobby

Chose this hotel due to an overnight layover in Panama airport and the free shuttle both ways. However, the shuttle is not so visible, since I had to ask the taxi drivers where the van was, and they had to call the hotel guy. Driving time is around 10 minutes both ways.

Check in was not speedy but ok, and the employee corteously apologized for the delay. The room is very spacious and can serve for longer stays, with a huge LCD screen and an independent (and very silent) AC unit. Windows are soundproof. The pool is big, and has lush vegetation around, which makes for a decent stroll after many hours in an airplane.

The hotel has the design feeling all around, but sometimes this conflicts with functionality. For example, the concrete night table, or the pretty wash basin that was too high and too far apart, or the fancy shower with only "rain style" available. And there was no hot water! Luckily, Panama weather is usually very hot and the water came out lukewarm.

The public areas are cozy and also designed. I ate at the restaurant, which is overprized due to the fact they are the only establishment in some kilometers. Service was efficient.

In their favour, they offer welcome cocktails (alcoholic or not) and complimentary breakfast. Breakfast had many varieties to chose from. They also help you with your luggage to the shuttle on the way back, which goes out 24 hours but on fixed times. Staff is polite. There is (paid) self service laundry which is also appreciated.

Room Tip: If you carry too much luggage, ask for rooms closer to the reception

Perfect location close to the airport. Everything else was just OK... Nice pool, nice bbq food and pool area bar. Panama is hot but it looks like they like to save energy because the air conditioner at the room and hallways were not cool enough.

Landing in Panama I exited out customs and there was the driver for the hotel.
The hotel is probably no more than ten minutes from the airport.
Check in was no problem and I went directly to my room- 112 poolside.
The total cost of the room was reasonable. Other people on trip advisor had thought the cost of the room was to much for what they received.
The hotel at that time was not crowded.
The hotel though is being updated but no one was working it appeared after 5:00 PM. Rooms are being either updated or redecorated.
Since I didn't want hotel food I asked the front desk if there was anything nearby since I didn't have a car.
About 5 minutes from the hotel was a shopping mall that had the typical fast food restaurants that you would encounter at a strip mall.
But I digress.
Overall I would say the hotel is satisfactory. Nothing really stood out to rate it a 4 or a 2.

Room Tip: Even though I said the poolside rooms were good, they were an additional $20.00 a night compared to...
