Nice Facilities If You Can Stand Finding Staff Members Sleeping In Your Room.

The facilities at this hotel are really nice. The main floor is spacious and well-appointed. The meeting rooms were very well thought out. The front desk staff, concierge, and wait staff at the various stores and restaurants were very nice. However, I'm not sure what was going on with the housekeeping staff. When I arrived, my room key didn't work. After trying it half a dozen times, the door opened and a housekeeping staff member walked out. She had been very obviously sleeping on one of the beds and had the door locked from the inside. My co-worker had a housekeeping staff member walk into his room randomly one day after it had already been cleaned. Then an hour later members of housekeeping accompanied by members of management came through all the rooms on his floor, not saying why, just telling him to "carry on". Like I said, nice place, but a little off.

An airline mechanical issue created an opportunity for me to stay at the downtown Riu. My complete stay lasted about 12 hours, so my impressions are limited. Check-in was painless, and I was pleased with the reception given that I was an airline "voucher" guest, which included an opportunity to sample the dinner and breakfast buffets. The hotel looks and feels like a corporate destination, staff speak English, and the rooms are immaculate. The food was excellent in quality and selection, and dinner desert selection was brilliant. Like many large hotel properties, staff were polite, but seemed stressed and distracted. I felt like an obligation. Its too bad because property is beautiful.

Great Riu - Downtown Panama

Recently visited this hotel for a 3 day vacation. The hotel itself is nice. Unfortunately, it is not all inclusive and everything is an additional fee. However, there is a lot of great shopping near - high end stores as well regular local boutique shops with great sales on woman’s clothing. The pool at the hotel was nice and the pool restaurant had amazing ceviche! I would recommend this hotel if you need a clean, modern hotel in middle of the city. It’s not a resort feel but more of a regular hotel with a great AC and great location!

fantastic hotel

beyond impressed with facilities and its comfort! Fantastic breakfast selection! Staff is very helpful and friendly. This would be our favourite hotel, in all honesty. It offers breathtaking view if you ask your room to be reserved in one of the the upper floors! Very clean!

Very good hotel

The Riu Plaza Panama is a beautiful hotel, it’s located in the financial district of Panama City. The staff is great and very helpful. We were in 14th floor and had a fantastic view of the city. The room was impeccable, the bed and the pillows were really soft. We booked our room with breakfast included. Breakfast is a buffet style and everything was delicious. We used the pool for a few hours and we enjoyed our swim the ambience was really nice by the pool. Soho Mall is within walking distance it has all the brand stores from Prada to Dior, keep in mind these stores are very expensive. We had a great time at the Riu Plaza one of the best hotel in Panama City. I will definitely stay back here again.
