The Riu Plaza Hotel was chosen as the site for an engineering convenrion I attended for 5 days. I was lucky to have a good room with a view of the city and the mountains 1-2 floors below the penthouse. The staff was friendly, flexible, and polite. The property has great places to eat with a lively, vibrant bar scene. Its location fits perfectly in the heart of the financial district. One more thing to consider is that if a hotel is the site of a convention, expect longer waiting times for the elevators during the day and early evenings.

i just returned on 10/7. Very friendly staff, I really enjoyed the breakfast items (costs about $10-11), and the area is a safe neighborhood with various shops/internet cafes. The casino was lively and always busy at night. I work out as well and the gym was functional which was located next to the pool that had a great view. Room was cleaned daily and free wifi (I called the front desk for assistance with the password. Overall great stay and I plan to stay again if I return to Panama.

Stayed at this hotel before and it felt just like the first time, clean spacious room, great views of the bay and the city, full of functionality and fun. The suite created the perfect office space for me to plan the next step in my career and prepare for an engineering conference across downtown. Barcelona Restaurant (and Tapas Bar) provided the perfect spot for an afternoon lounging experience served with a glass of wine or a cocktail. Tejas was a great find too for those who love sushi. Quiet and ultra-modern, breezy, relaxing patios just outside of Cava 15 and Barcelona, I couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff was very friendly, accommodating, and flexible in helping me make my transaction to pay for the room. Definitely recommend this place for those who want to stay just outside the tourist area, given that it is located in a safe neighborhood (there are adjacent hi-rise residences next to Trump).
"I went to the Toscana Hotel based on the reviews."
I am very glad to have chosen the Toscana Inn. The staff, service and all about this Hotel is great!! I will be back to this hotel with blind eyes. There is nothing I did not like about the hotel...
Thank you Patricia, Ricardo, Alexander and all of the guys at the hotel... You made our stay a pleasure!!
The DeVille was a welcome change after staying at a conference hotel for a week which had no character and was completely surrounded by highway with no way of walking anywhere. At the DeVille, the staff was extremely attentive from the moment I walked in, yet they also gave us plenty of privacy. The rooms are both homey and stylish, there is beautiful antique furniture everywhere you look. The rooms are also extremely spacious. It was in a good location, plenty of restaurants and shops to walk to.

"Relaxing resort atmosphere in urban surroundings"
The staff, from check in to check out was just wonderful. We had an upper level cabana (pool side) room with a balcony. It was spacious. Only issue is that there is no sitting furniture, i.e. couch, chair other than a single desk chair, even though there was ample room. There was a small table and two chairs on balcony. The pool is beautiful and the pool staff very polite and attentive. Wide variety of television channels including some English language ones. The tourist taxis that are headquartered there were very useful and reasonably priced. Actual neighborhood is a little seedy, but only a few blocks from nicer area. Traffic (not the hotel's fault) in the general vicinity is UNBEARABLE, but noise was effectively kept out. Gym was reasonably well stocked with machines, weights, etc. NOTE: We were there off-season. I cannot say how the staff functions when the resort is at full or high capacity.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
