Hotel Riu Plaza - Panama City, Panama
Monday April 18th– 20th, 2011
After a very relaxing week in Bocas del Toro, Panama we flew back to Panama City and stayed two nights at the Hotel Riu Plaza. The hotel is still fairly new (about a year old) and very sleek and modern. The hotel boasts a very modern 2 – 3 story Lobby with a bar, two restaurants, a small gift shop a take out deli counter and an exclusive lounge for guests staying in certain rooms.
The reception staff was very helpful at check-in and the lobby staff was very good in handling our bags and escorting us to our room, very good service was expected, and they did come through.
We took advantage of a special package deal online and had a room on one of the upper floors (the 33rd, top floor to be exact) which was very spacious with a large bathroom and floor to ceiling (10 feet) glass window. This provided an awesome view of the city both day and night and the mountains of Panama in the background. By selecting this room (which was very reasonable) we also had access to the first floor lounge with an office center, snacks, water, sodas and beer and wine for our choosing).
As far as services were concerned, a buffet breakfast (a quite large one) was provided as well as the initial min-bar supplies of water, soda and beer. Not a bad deal to have a very nice room, well situated in downtown, in a fairly newly constructed hotel. We did not eat there except for breakfast, so I cannot comment on the food there for evening time.
An excellent hotel (once again on this trip…) for the price, very contemporary and provided an excellent place for our stay in Panama City. I would recommend this hotel for the service, ambience and value. 3 ½ / 5. I think it could use a bit more attention in certain areas, but overall a very good hotel for the money.
