Playa Venao Hotel Resort
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Pedasi
Reviewed 3 October 2017 via mobile

Perfect place to spend relaxing weekend with your couple. Has a lovely pool, good food, you can have a good night sleep and even though it's a quite simple hotel it has everything you need, an excelent "escape from the city" place.

I was in this resort 2 nights. Since when we arrived it was clear the service is poor. Nobody helped us with the luggage, nor offered a drink, even a glass of water, as it is quite normal in a decent hotel of a tropical area. The room, actually a kind of bungalow, was nice and clean, but the air con was impossible to tune and internet was not working at all. The mini bar had nothing in and there were no slippers. The breakfast was included in the room rate, but quality and quantity of the meal was not what you expect for 170 dollars per night. The fruit was a symbolic quantity, beverages poor quality and the main meal you can choose in between egg or egg. Incredibly considering that in Panama the fruit is cheap!
In conclusion: we suggest travelers to choose another resort, until the owners do not learn that people are not lemons to be squeezed.

I've been here so many times I have lost count and plan on spending the rest of my life coming back. Peaceful friendly place with some of the most consistent surf on the planet and very easy for the aging surfer looking for sand instead of rock and reef break. The breakfast is included is massive in quantity and state of the art in quality.

The rooms are beyond spectacular! Never slept better in my life.

Room Tip: The cabins along the forest are the best (the ones out back).

This hotel is the best in the area, it is a lodge type setting with a great infinity pool in front of the ocean. The rooms are clean, restaurant breakfast is basic with fruit, yogurt and granola plate followed by eggs and toast. The setting is definitely paradisiac, just make sure to take your own water or other snacks because there is not any place to purchase anything within 30 minute drive.

Perfect place to stay, walk and enjoy the relaxing sea for a couple of days. The pool is just breathtaking. Breakfast was very complete and to eat pizzas for lunch at Gavilán or dinner at Panga are good choices.

We enjoyed our stay at the resort very much. We got upgraded and got to stay at the junior suite. The room was very clean large and comfortable with a large shower and a closet room. The service was good. Breakfast a bit dull but all in all satisfactory. the Will be back

Nothing that I'll write here will be close to what this place is! It feels too complete to be a reality. Everything comes together perfectly and you find yourself asking many times if this is a virtual reality. The resort was designed by a real sea lover, the flow, the deck, the pool and the open restaurant, get all connected and creates the environment unlike any other place in the world!!! And I've been to many places before.
If you are a surfer, you will not find a better package deal, between the resort, the friendly beach, both the local surfers and the beach itself and the consistency that this bay offers in terms of the waves.
The service in the resort is outstanding, very clean and friendly. You feel like you came to a community and you immediately feel like at home. The food is excellent and with many options, all fresh and flavored.
This is an heaven while you are still breathing from your nose. Fantastic!!!!
