This was the worst hotel on our 10-day Panama vacation. Three main reasons: 1)by far the biggest complaint was that our room had no working air conditioning and no fans, and when we arrived our room had to be 90 degrees, and it was steamy. That was not the problem. The problem was that there was an air conditioning unit...

This place is beautiful, tranquil, and just what you need to unwind! We have been here 3 days out of a 2 week stay and so far it's been nothing short of perfection!! The staff is so friendly. They giggle at our attempts to speak Spanish, but it's very sweet. If I had all day to rave about this place...

I decided to visit this place with my boyfriend and the rooms are very clean and the service is great. The beach is walking distance from the hotel. The food was really good, I will definitively will return to this hotel. For the price you pay, is it nice and welcoming.

My husband and I stayed at the Manglar Lodge for my birthday. It is a small, nicely landscaped lodge with an excellent restaurant. You should split meals. Sandwiches are huge. The hotel is beside a river leading to the ocean. You can walk a couple of blocks on the street to get to the beach. We were thrilled to see...

We had a terrible experience with this hotel. We travel extensively and have never experienced such disregard for our well being as with this stay. The power went out during the day and stayed out throughout the night. The owner/manager left without any notification to us and no explanation. He locked everything up including a gate to exit from the...

Small clean friendly lodge with surprisingly good food at the end of a dead end, partially dirt road off the InterAmerican Highway. Shares a small pool with shade and a restaurant with a bigger, not as nice place, Bayview. Be aware of 18 tides on Pacific coast. Surf crashes into sea wall at high tide. Walk 300 yards over rocky/sand...
