We booked an executive twin room (two relatives traveling together) and were pleasantly surprised at almost every turn. We aren't business travelers but wanted access to the views and free drinks. Our room was huge with a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the city skyline. The beds are exceedingly comfortable with huge, fluffy pillows. I don't love the lilac decorations, but so...

I stayed at the Riu Plaza for 2 nights at the start of a 2 week trip to Panama. Firstly, our flight to Panama was cancelled and Riu Plaza changed our reservation by a day with no problems, which was very nice of them. The hotel itself is lovely, there is a large lobby with a cocktail bar, reception staff...

Stayed one night, on my last night in Panama. What a beautiful hotel! I walked around the neighbourhood and I also took an evening swim in the lovely pool. Room was huge, with floor to ceiling views and a million channels on the big screen tv. Breakfast was delicious. Everything was top notch and I would love to return.

We stayed at this hotel two nights. One the night we flew into Panama and the night before we left to fly home. It is very nice and well kept. There are many things to do at and around the hotel location. There are a number of casinos near by which made my wife happy. She wasn't so happy when...

Stayed in three different hotels while in Panama City and this is my hands down favorite. Great rooms, friendly staff and nice amenities. Some services were a bit uneven and I would call this a training deficit. The front desk personnel had command of several languages making it easy for travelers who speak halting or no Spanish. My advice to...
