Everything was wonderful. Peaceful, clean and enjoyable

The staff and property were very nice. Breakfast was amazing. I will go back.

I came here and fell sick and had to extend my stay. They arranged for a doctor to visit me and extended my stay for one more day. Food was served in the room and they try their best. Very pleasant staff.

Nice hotel! Good location!

Superb service, staff attentive, immaculate

Excellent stay. property was clean and staff was very courteous. Easy access to the City of Panama

Muy bueno todo 😀

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is central. The suites are very spacious and provide a great city view. Valet parking is always quick to retrieve the vehicle. We enjoyed dinner at the Spanish restaurant and lunch at the pool side. Breakfast was included and offered a wide range of choices.

Very dusty. The only thing I liked was breakfast. The drinks at the bar were pretty but that's about it. They weren't tasty. The food was okay.

The room was very nice and big enough for 3 people. They were responsive to any request made. The was varying choices for breakfast which actually was like brunch with the non "breakfast" choices. They need to add a microwave for guest use.

Check-in was quick and every staff member we encountered was very friendly and willing to help. The room was spacious and clean despite showing a few signs of age. The location around the hotel was safe and clean. Hotel breakfast was amazing and very filling. The pool bar/restaurant and pool were great. We really enjoyed this hotel and would definitely return.

Our check in process was very good. We were actually able to check in early which was awesome. Only issue was they did not have any rags in the room, nor enough towels for the amount of people in the room. They also provide coffee in the room, but no tea. And instead wanted to charge $3 for a tea bag, which was a little bit ridiculous granted that it is a hotel that offers an extensive and included breakfast. The breakfast options were great! and they did have a large variety. But because we needed to leave at 4am to catch our flight and breakfast did not start until 6:30am, we simply requested a tea bag, which they refused to give us, unless we paid the room service charge. In spite of this I would still recommend staying at the RIU, but I Would definitely recommend that they look into this policy, and how it is handled in regard to customer service and marketing strategies. Because in essence a tea bag costs 15 cents, and if we stuck around for breakfast, we would have maybe consumed upwards of $30 worth of food. So it would have been zero loss to the hotel to offer the guests a tea bag.

Only stayed 1 night. Loved it. Great view, room, service.. Breakfast buffet was fantastic! We will be back...
