We attended a conference here and got the special rate that included breakfast. We also noticed 2 weddings going on so it seems popular with the locals as well. The room was attractive, clean, and spacious. It had a bathtub which seems to be quite rare these days and I made full use of it. There is a free mini...

Attended a conference held here for four days. Great location to investigate the city and to use a the base for tours. Short walks to prime restaurants, parks, bay and shopping/malls. Extremely friendly staff ready to assist and language is not a barrier. Probably the best breakfast buffet I have ever had! The rooms are smartly decorated in vivid colors,...

I stayed here for a conference for five nights. The room was spacious with two double beds, a sitting area and desk for work. Great shower with bath. The room was nicely decorated with modern decor. The restaurant facilities were good with a large selection of food types at both breakfast and lunch buffets. The swimming pool and the surrounding...

I think I am a fussy sleeper and this hotel was great. Its very big, over 500 rooms but you don't feel it being crowded. The rooms are very pretty - some green some purple. Beds super comfy - great view on the city if you get a high floor room. Its a tall skyscrapper with about 30 floors. We...

I have written directly to the Riu & not received a reply, I hope they respond to this review! On your website you advertise rooms starting from $75/night every weekend. Yet when I click on the promo & fill in my weekend dates, that deal does not show up! Please either validate your promotion or remove it from your site.

Breakfast superb. Nice building. Heavy traffic. Rooms are ok but basic and not well dusted off. We switched from another hotel which was old and tired but same price. All and all hotel was good. I would come back.

We had a great week long stay here. The hotel is beautiful inside and kept very clean. Rooms were large and were cleaned impeccably by the cleaning staff. There were more English tv channels then we typically have when we travel. Heard mention of water not being warm in the reviews but it was great - hot all the time....

This hotel is one of the best in Panama City. It is reasonably priced and at least when we were there seemed to be a mecca for various commercial conferences and meetings. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Travellers should know that closing the room cuts off the electricity unless a key is left in the inside slot. The food...
