- Hotel Riu Panama PlazaFirst to ReviewOct 25, 2013
If the future could have a baby with the 1980s, this hotel would be the result. All the public spaces are uber modern and simultaneously neon and wavy. The lobby is huge and easy to spend time in, with free wifi (yay!). I liked the design in the hotel rooms a lot. We were told that they're color coordinated by floor, so one floor is all decorated in orange, the next in purple, the next in green, and then back to orange again. We got an orange one and it was actually delightful, in a flowery 70s porn kind of way. The rooms are pretty big and have more seating area than lots of hotels, and a terrific view – but no balcony. The pool area is nice but cheesy, complete with fake palm trees.Recommended for:

The Hotel Riu reminded me a little of stepping into a Miami Vice episode. The hotel designers were not afraid to use bold splashes of orange, violet and green when creating the decor. The Riu also boasted an olympic-length swimming pool, lounge, restaurant and business center. At 187.50 for a room with wifi and breakfast it was right about in line with the competition for this type of hotel. The staff at the Riu were lukewarm but nearly everyone spoke fluent English. You could definitely do worse than the Riu but if you have the time you might do well to look around.Recommended for:
