Good hotel in a safe location

Just back from 7 nights at the RUI Plaza Hotel. Would recommend.Good hotel in a safe location, close to the British Embassy and short walk down to Hard Rock Cafe and Multicentro shopping area.Bit random with some things; I got complimentary water every day but only got one complimentary coffee all week.Good housekeeping in general and a good breakfast buffet.Pool bar staff over-worked, very busy area and far too few staff. One particularly busy night someone in a suit wandered in to "help out" and put orange juice in the pina coladas, neither use nor ornament really. He then disappeared and left the others to it. They work very hard.Overall, a very good hotel. Reception area could get very busy, they seem to have a lot going on in conference rooms and the downstairs bar area was often sealed off for events. One evening I only just managed to get in and through the lobby. Turned out Miss World was there or something so they were extra busy.

Resort like Hotel Best in Class

Service was excellent right from the start of the stay. Mix up with the room straighted out immediately. Room had floor to celing windows overlooking the city and entrance to the canal. Could see both sunrise and sunset. Front desk helpful at all times. Cabs and hotel cars waiting right out the front door to take you where you want to go. The pool was in a nice spot with views of city skyscrapers an oasis from the city. Hotel had many different types of restaurants to sit for a drink or have something to eat. The breakfast was specticular, largest selection I have ever seen and waiters serving fresh coffee or tea. Overall a great place to stay while in Panama City.

Good experience

The location it's great. It's also a big hotel, the room is always clean, they have a big space (small living and dining place) big bed, beautiful view, it have a coffee machine (please change that coffee). The gym it's pretty good, it can be better, but for sure is one of the best ones I had been. About the food, you have a lot of options !People are really kind, they actually help me with an IT issue. Very happy

Huge hotel in the city

Huge hotel with lots of rooms and elevators. Evening music was so loud my ears hurt just walking through the lobby. Any thought to have a cocktail and relax before bed was not happening. Rooms were decorated like every other Riu. Silver, black and purple. Modern. Breakfast buffet was huge, noisy and sadly not restocked once it was gone leaving a very poor selection at 8am! I would not stay her again due to the noise and the food, but others I were with liked it a lot more than I did.
