How to Get There
My husband and I, along with my mother stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in June during our trip to Panama to visit family.
Our rooms were nice and roomy. King sized bed was huge. Large bathroom with nice sized tub.
View from our rooms were great.
Breakfast buffet was awesome. Huge seating area, and the room with the food was large as well. So many food choices! Everything you could imagine for breakfast.
We also ate dinner poolside one evening and that dinner was very good too.
The hotel also has a little store stocked with water, soda, snacks, etc that is open 24 hours a day.
Staff was friendly and most helpful.
stayed at the RIU a total of 4 days in June 2016. Counter staff is most enthusiastic about trying to help. My Spanish is limited but we got along. Best Feature? Breakfast! Pool side bar is welcoming in the afternoon... Lunch buffet is a bit pricy (though wonderful) so, I'd recommend getting a sandwich at the snack bar across from the elevators. Nice dinner selections.
Stayed here for 1 night. Parking has an additional cost ($12 a day). The staff doesn't speak any English. When I first arrived, I had to leave my car to the Valet, and as your first point of contact, It's very disappointing for a hotel chain this big not to have bilingual staff. Tourists are your #1 priority.
Unfortunately it rained so I did not get to use the pool.
Everything always the same over the last 5 years, I believe that the hotel needs renovation works, particularly bathrooms areas which affect the general cleanliness. Otherwise nothing else to add, very friendly and cooperative staff and great buffet as well as the pool and restaurant area. Perfect central location.
Very nice property; friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, good food and drink options. Had a birthday during my stay which I did not tell anyone and to my surprise the GM had a fruit platter, cookies with chocolate syrup and desserts delivered to my room while I was out. What a nice surprise!
