Big convention style hotel. We stayed here for a total of 3 nights on our way to and from Isla Palenque. Rooms are modern and comfortable but there was something about them that I felt was not clean enough. I didn't like the sheets, not enough towels, the bathroom had a slight odor and we asked maintenance to help us...

On my third visit to Panama City I stayed at the gorgeous Riu Plaza in Marbella. The lobby is like a work of art. Huge, stunning, welcoming. The staff at the front desk is always friendly, speaks fluent English, extremely helpful. Out room was on the 24th floor. The viees of Panama City were jaw dropping. Wow. The room was...

I'm checking out today.. The service at this hotel and the attitude of the staff is truly bad... They got around to cleaning my room at 5 in the afternoon, only after I rang and asked to speak to the manager, a Mr Carlos, who refused to speak to me or call me back. I stayed in 3312, nice room,...

Stayed here over valentines day weekend and it was a very nice hotel. Had an awesome breakfast buffet included and the pool area was very nice. Especially at night. It's a large hotel, but still good value. Good location. Definitely recommend.

Stayed at this hotel for a week with my son and his wife and their 9 month old baby. We each had a suite (lounge, separate bedroom, large bathroom with an enormous separate shower, guest toilet,) which was very comfortable and clean. Our rooms were on a high floor so we had an amazing view. There was a problem with...

Not enough can be said about this hotel. The breakfast that's inlcuded in the room price is next level. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are spacious, the bathoom is roomy with an awesome shower. The lunch menu is reasonably priced. The drinks a little expensive though but are tasty. A few things I would change is there...

We stayed here for the second part of our two week holiday in Panama. The first week we had stayed in Casco Antiguo but this hotel and area were completely different. We stayed in a suite and it was absolutely huge! On the first night we were brought a welcoming gift of fruit and biscuits. We regularly had a phone...

This hotel is newer, modern, and well located in downtown Panama City. Although I didn't venture out much, the area seems pretty safe, although if you are looking for a beach vacation this might not be the place for you. I was upgraded to a suite by surprise which really set the tone for my trip. They also brought me...

This is a really nice hotel. The drawbacks are in their approach to service. The front desk makes commitments they don't keep, and there are some odd deficiencies in other services. For example, while I was at the gym, my room was made up. I came back and was about to get in the shower, but at the last moment...
