Gone fishing was a great find! We turned up at the last minute and were accommodated graciously by our hosts. It was a beautiful, airy place with stunning views of the surrounding waterways and all the comforts of home. The food was excellent, the staff and owner were friendly and took great care of us.

Though the place is not bad, it has a nice view and food the big problem for my husband and I was the owners attitude. When we got there he told us that he had "a special room for us" and when they show it to us it was awful! Dirty, full of spiderwebs, the air conditioner was loud, the... More

If you live in Paradise! We knew when we entered the huge lobby of this villa with the open air kitchen, bar and beautiful view, we'd probably never want to leave. And really that's what happened. We had such a wonderful time here that we scheduled another night days later after a trip up to Cerra Punta right before we... More

I was at Gone Fishing Panama the last week in October 2011. The rainy season was coming to an end and the the weather was great. The resort is very relaxing, the food was wonderful, all the staff very nice and were right there whenever I needed something. We fished everyday and caught wahoo, tuna, dorado, rooster fish and cabera... More

The resort/hotel is comfortable and clean (furnishings a little dated but I can see how it's hard to get anything out there). It's hard to get to without a car (even then you have to go on a rocky/gravel road) but once there it's peaceful and beautiful. The water and surrounding islands are gorgeous. They helped us hire a water... More

We had high expectations of this place due to the Fodor's review. We called the day-of and requested a room, (we specified that we were interested in one of the lower priced rooms as we were only staying 1 night) the owner seemed really friendly and said no problem. My husband and I are a younger couple, but very polite... More

Gone Fishing Panama was just what we were looking for! Clean and comfortable rooms (with a good air conditioner), delicious food, great fishing, a relaxing atmosphere and all for a reasonable price. Bruce and Donna and the staff were all very friendly! At times, I felt like I was staying at a friend's vacation home rather than a hotel. We... More

Hi Bruce and Donna, I have to say that Steve and I wish we were still in Boca Chica with you guys. We made it up to Bocas del Toro and have said we should have extended our stay at Gone Fishing Panama instead of heading to the Caribbean side. It is rainy here, and cold!! We had perfect weather,...
