Exceptional 10.0
Highly Recommend this hotel!!
We have stayed at the RIU many times, always when in Panama City, Panama. We can depend on the hotel to be good and staff helpful. Have never had any major problems at all and minor ones taken care of (such as needing an extra towel, a minor repair such as hair dryer). We appreciate KNOWING IN ADVANCE that all will be well. The Breakfast which is include is Amazing and all food is excellent. We speak a little Spanish, many staff speak English or at least some English. When in doubt? we manage as everyone wants to be helpful!!!

Poor 2.0
STAY AWAY!!!!
Do to a document issue I was not able to fly into Panama. I had 2 rooms booked and the manager did not allow any type of refund nor a credit for future stay. They are very harsh and should look elsewhere if you are looking for a hotel. There are better options and im sure other management would not just take your money. STAY AWAY!

Good 6.0
Big hotel with big problems elevators down
The elevators were not working most of the time one of three. Have to register anyone who is with you if you want to go to your room. No writing paper or pen in room. Air conditioning working barely. You are surprised when you get there to find you have to pay extra for your car to park at the hotel and it is not cheap. I found the lack of transparency and the problems to make me think twice before I would stay again.
