My boyfriend and I recently stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Playa Cambutal. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and comfortable. In particular, we were particularly impressed with the high quality of the construction and bathrooms/shower...nice wood and detail, really lovely! The sheets and towels are also very high quality in comparison to other nearby hotels. We enjoyed our room,... More

This is a very new and well maintained facility at the Pacific ocean of Panama. About 4 and an half hours driving from Panama City. If you look for a very nice place to spend a vacation, this is your place. Full of outdoor activities, specially surf, back horse riding and many others. Very friendly staff with clean rooms. Good...

The restaurant service and quality is terrible. The food was bad and cold. The breakfast which is included was not tasty. The pancakes were uncooked, there was no butter, not even the coffee was good. The room with a "view to the ocean" overseas a roof. Just stay here if you have no other place to stay in Cambutal.

The hotel is BEAUTIFUL, well kept and excellent service. The views are something you will not forget. The food was amazing, and we never ran out of activities to do; from Surfing to ziplining, horse rides to 4x4 trips we enjoyed every second. This is the perfect place to scape with your family. Very kid friendly, still intimate and quiet

We had such an incredible trip to Cambutal. Hotel Playa Cambutal went above and beyond to make our friends birthday very special. When we arrived we were greeted promptly and efficiently, this was appreciated as we were very tired and in need of a quick nap. Once we recharged in the impeccably clean and fresh rooms we headed down to... More

Had dinner with some friends here. Interesting selection of Panamanian craft beers. Nice, simple, small menu. I am a vegetarian, and the chef was happy to make up something for me. Lots of mosquitoes, but the hotel has spray. Nice view. Good staff. Was a nice experience.

Hotel Playa Cambutal is exceptional! The staff is friendly, the food is soooo good (I recommend you try the desserts for sure!), the hotel is beautiful and small enough that it doesn't intrude in the natural scenery, as many other big hotels do. But the best thing of all is the sea turtles-- don't miss out! Contact Fundacion Tortuagro to... More

Great Panama Hotel with all amenities. Very helpful staff and awesome grounds right on the beach. Not your standard "hoity-toity" hotel like found in the city but great for the small town. Big swimming pool there and we actually saw monkeys across the street in the trees while in the pool. There were lots of hummingbirds out front and its... More

The hotel is traditional but it has amazing woodwork, a big beach and a great pool for kids. There are various dining areas (all from the same kitchen) so it's nice to change it up day to day. The included breakfast is more than enough and the staff super attentive. Their manager was especially helpful in arranging to have tires... More
