We have been here for a few days back in 2014, on business trip. We returned the last December with intention on staying there for 3 days but.... we had to cancel after the 2nd day due to a complexity of issues going from problems with accommodation, poor assistance from staff and terrible food! The previous experience at this hotel was good as expected from a Riu standard...We were really surprised for seen such degradation of important standards that definitely put this hotel to a 3 star ratin...

I was very worried about travelling to this resort due to the earlier reviews. We had a great vacation. The food was pretty good, we always found something good to eat. The fish and chips at the grill, where we ate lunch every day was spectacular. The fries were deep fried right in front of us. Supper at the restaurants or the buffet was good. It was not always easy to get poolside chairs unless you were out there very early. As for the washrooms, yes they were a bit of a walk but they were alwa... Read more

My family and I went to Panama to celebrate my mums 60th, and news years eve. We loved every moment of it! The staff was very friendly and the excursions we went to were just fantastic for both adults and kids. We visited Anton Valley which was like a rain forest into a jungle zoo full of active animals which the kids loved. (Not like a Toronto zoo where half the animals are sleeping). Amazing nature and fresh air. We booked most tours through Sunwing, Nexus. (Which they will explain on the ... Read more

The weather and lush vegetation alone make Panama worth the price and distance. Add to that the high quality service, attractive and well appointed facilities and superior food of the RIU franchise and you have an excellent place for family vacations. The people in Panama are friendly and proud of their beautiful country. And I've never felt so comfortable and safe in a tropical destination. Oh and one more time - the weather is perfect!

Stayed Dec 30th/16 to Jan 6/17. Overall it was a good vacation with excellent weather. If you enjoy bright hot sunny days this is definitely a destination to consider. The beach for the most part is soft sand. Closer to the ocean it's a good idea to wear sandals or water shoes as there are seashells & rocks which if your not careful to avoid when walking they may cut your foot. As for the stray animals we only seen a couple of dogs on the beach and a few cats within the resort complex however ... Read more

For a full 7 days I have to say the service was fantastic, the area was well maintained and lots of variety for food... considering this is an old resort the Riu picked up and restored... it's a hidden Jem The rooms were large, cleaned and modern styled. Can't bead the refreshments in the room and a stocked refrigerator included. To add you could always get more bottled water at the reception. Got upgraded to a suite for our wedding and wow. Amazing!!! Best advice and obviously be armed and re... Read more

This resort seems to cater to the local folks in Panama and maybe their neighbouring countries. Not much english spoken here. Service in restaurants was horrible. Pools were overcrowded and dirty. Food was comparable to a 3-star in Cuba. As a smoker my husband was banished to almost the beach area (a good long walk). Apparently this is a country law. The beach was awful, sand very dark and gritty and water very dark - we did not sit on beach nor go into the water. Room had some major issue... Read more

If you are a smoker, enjoy good food, want to host a destination wedding or don't speak Spanish this resort is not for you! Traveled November 4 - 11, 2016 for a destination wedding. Room - Our room is probably the one thing from this trip I can say I was genuinely happy with. It was clean and very spacious. DO NOT FALL for the ocean view upgrade, ALL of the rooms at the resort face the ocean. The hotel is built in a U shape. Restaurants - I would compare the food at this resort to the food in ...

RIU has definitely seen the reviews because they have stepped their game up. We went Nov 18-25 (Friday to Friday). We read negative reviews about service, staff, food, locals, language etc. NONE of that was an issue, and literally i mean none. I don't know why everyone was complaining about this resort.. like relax.. if you don't have bacon for a day find something else. There was plenty of options and the food was nothing different than other RIUs we have visited. Ignore the reviews, and just r... Read more

Stayed at the Riu Playa Blanca from November 11 to 18. Being first time in Panama not sure what to expect. Loved the hotel, food and people. Our rooms were clean and very comfortable. Decor quite modern throughout the hotel. Lots of seating in lobby and lobby bar. Pools very nice, especially the sports pool. Beaches not the best but quite nice for walks during low tide. Food choice great at main buffet. A la carte restaurants not the best. Japanese ok but Steak house was disappointing. Entertai... Read more
