Front desk staff was slow to process reservation and seemed bored

On the positive side, this hotel is close the airport and has a decent pool. I think this was probably a great property 20 years ago. Oh, and our bathroom was definitely updated. The remainder of the hotel is in need of some serious work. The carpeting is old, there is no elevator, our room had old, plastic chairs, dated fixtures and the feel of a room untouched for decades. The staff is so-so. We got some unfriendly types and also some nice employees. No one on the staff spoke English (I didn't take that into consideration, it's in Panama after all). If you have low expectations and need a bed the day before you depart, it's worth the money.

I've stayed at this hotel every year for the last 10. I drop off the rental car at the airport and head to the hotel which is minutes away. The hotel is modern with friendly staff. The very lush courtyard with pool is a terrific way to end the vacation. poolside bar during the day and an superb BBQ menu in evening. In the morning is an included smaller but perfect hot buffet before I catch the free airport shuttle. All round great hotel for all likes of people.

I like the location, a clean hotel. When I request a coffee pot for my room, I get one. For Breakfast a carafe of coffee on the table would make my day. Being disabled, unable to walk, that would be better than 4 trips to my table to refill the coffee cup. Little things make me happy. I return from the mountains in a few days, to stay at the Riande. Thanks for making my stay pleasant.

Great hotel to stay at while waiting for your next flight out of Panama. We did not like Panama much but we did like this hotel and preferred staying here instead of going into the city. Awesome pool, bar, evening bbq, great breakfast and ambiance. If you have a lay over, just schedule a room here for the layover. 5 minutes from the airport.

I liked this hotel a lot. Spent a lot of time in the gorgeous garden. Room was very quiet. Free shuttle from the airport 5 minutes away.

The hotel is close to the airport with free airport shuttle. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful. We enjoyed the pool, restaurant, WiFi, and comp breakfast. I would recommend. It is a good value.

The room with 2 beds was perfect. the bathroom has the best shower. Very modern and very very comfortable room.

Having the shuttle service is number one on my list. Breakfast included is a deal breaker for me. I'm disabled, and find the roll in shower, and handicap room adequate for me. The whole place is clean, and adequately lit for easy movement. I use the hotel each time I go to Panama, and night before travelling back to the U.S.

Comfortable, and clean, miss having a coffee pot in the room. Most hotels have 2 beds in the room, but always ONE luggage rack. Strange thought process in the industry.

Very close to Panama airport, frequent shuttle to airport, nice pool area and wet bar. Friendly staff, good service. Best decision if you want to avoid the traffic to the airport

A la llegada la señora que atiende muy despota nos íbamos a ir y salió otra señora que es la jefe y nos dijo que no nos fuéramos y fue muy amable, y al otro día al desayuno los que atienden que groseros uno saludaba y no contestaban ni si quiera lo miraban sola para recibirte el tique del desayuno de resto todo bien el hotel se ve que lo arreglaron mucho pero a muchos de los que trabajan ahí les falta ponerse la camiseta.

The room was amazing! I absolutely loved it. Working AC, big screen television, room service was on point and the back door straight on to the pool area was great.

The standard garden room we had was disappointing. The air conditioner rattled and seemed to be on the verge of failing. We had no access to WiFi for the entire stay (we could not log on to the network!). The front desk was overwhelmed by large groups and too few staff to service them (there was only one person working at the front desk Sunday morning when many people were trying to check out to get to the airport).

A few changes in the hotel have made it less comfortable than in past visits... although it's proximity to the airport make it a viable option when arriving or leaving Panama.

pros: The staff/manager kindly let us stay 4 hours after our departure time when our flight was delayed. The on-site store is open til 10 pm and carries cold pop, chocolate and chips - other sale items very pricey. The pool is fab, only watch out for a chunk of cement missing near the bridge - ow! Shuttle was great to have. It and the pool are the reasons to stay if you do. Outside bbq was delicious - pricey but good. Cons: the restaurant was not good - warm white wine, even when sent back, cold pasta. 2 other meals also cold - no one seemed to care much - very cold under A/C. Breakfast - lacklustre. No Minibar!!! Ice machines a long walk. I don't think rooms are vacuumed - I say this as I killed a very large bug one night and it was still there 2 days later. Very hard to communicate with check in staff - no matter what I tried to ask I was always asked when I was checking out :) Requested massage services - no such luck.

I just needed 1 night between two flights and this hotel was perfect. Free shuttle to/from the airport, easy and fast check-in, nice room, complimentary breakfast from very early in the morning anf very good wi-fi. If you don't want to use the stairs, book a room in the ground floor.

I've stayed at the Riande Aeropuerto several times in the past. 0rbitz and I assume other discounted reservations do get shunted to relatively remote 2nd floor locations. Getting on wifi is tricky because it's a two-stage counterintuitive process. Dinner food ranges from average to good, but is not excellent. Very pleasant grounds, helpful front desk staff, comfortable rooms.

Proximity to airport is perfect for late arrival or early takeoff. Free airport shuttle. Beautifully landscaped property.

Beautifully landscaped. Very close to airport and has free shuttle. Stay here every time we arrive or leave Panama
