Oasis in no man's land

THis is a great little hotel if you want to be close to the airport and feel as if you've already begun your tropical oasis trip. We had to overnight in Panama on our way to St. Marin and chose this little gem because it is about a mile away from the airport. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle 24 hours that can pick you up and bring you back to the airport so there is no need to rent a car (as we did,unless of course you want to venture into Panama City). We decided to stay put in the hotel. We received 2 complimentary cocktails, free grand buffet breakfast which starts really early (if you need to be at the airport by 5am). Pool bar is nice, lots of chairs, tropical setting, great drinks. Played table tennis outside. Had dinner at the hotel outside by the pool. The setting was nicer than the food, and the service was great.

Christmas Trip

I spent the Christmas holidays here and found it to be quite enjoyable. The hotel is in a convenient location near restaurants and some shopping. The transportation system is not the most convenient as the hotel does not have its own cars. However, getting taxi cabs is very convenient. Free breakfast is a plus!

Great hotel, would go again any time!

We stayed 3 nights at the Riu Plaza, Panama. Could not have asked for anything better. Rooms are perfect (#3124) with a view of the bay. Very modern, bright colors, comfortable beds, all the amenities just as described. Staff was VERY helpful. We had a car and kept asking for directions, always got friendly answers. Location is good, a few blocks away from the water though. Not walking distance to Balboa Plaza and about 35 minutes from the marina for the canal tours. They will tell you 15 minutes but the traffic in Panama City is horrible, plan accordingly. Amenities: the only reason I did not give a 5 is because the pool area with the outside bar closes surprisingly early (9pm), no night cap by the pool. We experienced the same thing in another hotel in Panama, so may be this is a legal matter... Breakfast buffet is impressive both in quantity and quality. In summary, if I went back to Panama City, I would not waste any time looking for a different place and would happily go back to the Riu.

Wonder experience

Perfectly located. Beautiful and very modern. Short walking distance from restaurants. Plenty of cabs. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Super clean and very helpful staff.
