Beautiful hotel

Stayed here in a King executive suite for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. I don't think I found much to fault. -Clean rooms -large rainfall shower and tub. Double vanity -Comfy bed Great view of the city from our room. We had access to the lounge which was a great extra. Everyday we filled up our water bottles at the water station. Beer and cans of pop/juice and different snacks available all day. Pool was great. Best sun is in afternoon. No loud music while we visited and always found a lounger. Perfect location for exploring the city. Safe area as well. Carlos and Gorge at the hotel restaurant bar were friendly and provided great service. Both were always smiling. Front desk also very friendly. Overall we loved Panama and plan to come back later this year and would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay as usual!

I just love this hotel! I have stayed here several times and i love the location, in the middle of the financial district but the resort feel is my favorite part for a city hotel. The pool is so chic and the drinks are cheap by the pool. Horacio the pool attendant is probably one of the best workers there. I wish more customer service staff could learn from him, so proactive! he would oversee what people needed before they even sat down. Greeted everyone with a smile and made sure everyone was well cared for. He needs a raise or a promotion! Our room was on floor 20, great view of the city and the ocean, comfortable beds and sheets. The rain shower always a favorite too! We stayed here 2 days on our busy 12 day itinerary in Panama and we loved it. THanks Riu, will definitely be back soon Oh did i mention the breakfast? probably one of the best buffet breakfast in the city! The omelette station is great and the fresh squeeze orange juice so refreshing!

Very nice place to stay .

Overrated, bad lounge, mass tourism hotel

It’s the 3rd time I’m writing a review for this hotel. I stayed there in 2011, in 2012, 2014 and now In 2018. I saw the quality becoming lower. It is now a good hotel for mass tourism or for the airlines to park passengers when they have oversold tickets. I would not recommend this hotel for business anymore for the following reasons: 1) lounge in nothing more than a big room where the concierge is busy selling tours and not concerned 1second on the ridiculous snacks that are on display. One even told me, when I pointed out the buffet was empty at 7pm, if they could replace it: ‘A esa hora?’: ‘at this hour?’ .... happy hour buffet is from 6 to 9. 2) lounge again: they don’t replace buffet. That say they do but believe me, they don’t or reluctantly bring something that is taken by the few that are already there after 2mn it’s being replaced. For a total of around 30 rooms that have lounge access, they have 3 plates of snacks that disappear after 5mn they are put in place. 3) parking for guests is not complimentary... it’s an absurd as even valet is complimentary at similarly priced hotels here I the financial district in Panama.

Very nice

Our airplane got delayed so we got to stay for a few hours. Cute room with nice view and a little “living room”. Beds could be better. The food was nice not expensive (but not cheap). The staff helped politely and with a smile.
