Customer Ratings & Reviews
TripAdvisor Traveler RatingBased on 3276 reviews
Wow, after travelling around Costa Rica this hotel was a little bit of luxury for two nights before we headed onto Bocas del tores. The Lobby has a Vegas club feel to it with the music and furniture. Vast amounts of food to choose from at the breakfast buffet. Staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay. We got an Uber to the old town which was reasonably priced. Definitely recommend this hotel.
A little pleasure and a little business
I want to start by saying the staff at Hotel Riu Panama Plaza were fantastic! Everyone was very helpful and extremely pleasant! The hotel location is perfect for both business and pleasure. My husband and I were conducting a little business while staying here. The attorney was a block away as was The notary. Very safe to walk in area. The hotel food was delicious. The breakfast is buffet style with an omelette station but had so many delicious options. The price is very reasonable and centrally located. The only criticism I have is that the hotel could use a bit of renovation. It was nice but slightly used. Nothing terrible but gently used.
Great and comfortable
Friendly stuff. The room very spacious,comfortable and clean. Great view to the east. I would recommend this hotel, as it is located in a central location. The amenities offered are great, and the pool area is great!
Great food; nice Hotel; perfect conference rooms. Beautiful view from the penthouse. The hotel is located in the best business area, and really close to Casco viejo city and also the airport. Pleased to come next time with family
Amazing Breakfast Buffet
My husband and I, along with my mother stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in June during our trip to Panama to visit family. Our rooms were nice and roomy. King sized bed was huge. Large bathroom with nice sized tub. View from our rooms were great. Breakfast buffet was awesome. Huge seating area, and the room with the food was large as well. So many food choices! Everything you could imagine for breakfast. We also ate dinner poolside one evening and that dinner was very good too. The hotel also has a little store stocked with water, soda, snacks, etc that is open 24 hours a day. Staff was friendly and most helpful.
