I stayed at the Riu Panama City Plaza for one night during an extended layover on my way to Europe. It is a relatively modern property that appears to gave been recently made over. Reasonably priced ( $109), very convenient from the Tocumen airport and in the financial district.
Staff seemed a bit clueless. Car booked by the hotel never arrived to meet me at the airport. My room reservation (made via the Riu central reservation line) did not show up at check in. In both cases the staff member had no explanations or answers. Kind of an unfortunate way to begin my Riu Panama experience.
The "free" minibar is stocked with a water, two lite beers and 2 cans of soda.
Breakfast buffet was good but was a bit overshadowed by the cafeteria style setup that reminded me of junior high.
Room decore was a garish green theme that didnt seem to have alot of thought put into it. Not my cup of tea
Overall, an average operation, can't say i'll stay there again on my next triptrt
