We had a very enjoyable stay here and I agree with the other reviews. The lodge was clean and comfortable, the food was excellent. We did small boat excursions with the kids to various islands. Good location and Bruce was fun to talk to and easy to work with.

We stayed for a week. Multiple fishing outings and many, many great meals onsite. Bruce is an amazing host - and captain. Some of the best sleep I've had in a while. Rooms are very quiet, and comfortable. We've stayed at other spots in Boca Chica in the past. Looking forward to our next stay here - we're done with... More

My wife and I loved our stay at Gone Fishing. Bruce was a wonderful host, full of good conversation and helpful recommendations and contacts for our boating and transportation needs. Andre's meals were delicious. Being that it was the quiet season, we were the only people there for much of our 4 day stay...and we loved it. Like having a... More

We stayed two nights/three days in January. Had read good reviews on Tripadvisor and drove up to find they had a casita room available. The main lodge rooms were only open for one of the two nights we needed - the casita room was, we didn't want to have to move and we were not disappointed with our choice. Cassis... More

For the non fisherman do not be mislead by the "Gone Fishing Panama" name. The Boca Chica area is dominated by fishing lodges which offer combined fishing and room packages. Many of which preclude the public from their premises. Gone Fishing Panama is a boutique resort hotel. It offers rooms to non fishing travelers. The majority of the guests are... More

Wow, when you walk into the house the view is so shockingly beautiful. We had the same view from our room, the Blue Room. We also had a hammock on the large patio for your afternoon naps. The air conditioning worked very well, which we left on day and night. Met some very fun people, Brian and Jeff. We boated... More

Had a great time hanging out with Bruce and Andre and Mike. Bruces friends Brian and John and assorted others. A great experience on wonderful piece of property. The five days I was there went by too fast, loved talking politics and the world in general. Would recommend it to anyone that needs a place to relax and have fun.... More

For 8 glorious days my husband and I and his sister and her husband spent 8 beautiful days in what the locals call paradise. We were just traveling with no set schedule to be any where in particular and after 3 planned days to spend at Gone Fishing Resort Hotel we extended our stay another 5 days. The people there...

Gone Fishing Panama Resort was a highlight of our trip across Panama! The locations is perfect with a stunning view on the gulf of Chiriqui and Brava. House and garden are beautiful.

Gone Fishing is the best of the Boca Chica area. They have the best view, grounds, pool and the hotel itself is done in a hacienda style. With a large tastefully decorated Breezy Dinning/bar/social area. If you like Teac wood then this is a must see.....Has good access to the Water via there peer and dock. This area has huge... More
