My husband & I went to HPC dozens of times in the last few months. They have the best (and only) wifi in town. We always get the same thing... the cheeseburger and fries with a cold beer. This might sound silly, but their bathrooms are the cleanest in town. We watched most of the World Cup games at the... More

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at Hotel Playa Cambutal while visiting friends in this part of Panama paradise. We were on the second floor looking out onto the ocean. The sand is black, the beach is wide during low tide, but if you love surfing and riding the waves on boogie boards, this is the place for it!... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights here. This was my 2nd visit and my wife's 3rd. Hotel Playa Cambutal has a nice surfer family friendly atmosphere. Everything is low key and mellow. Definitely a place to come and relax. Everything was super-clean and well maintained. Things to do: take the 4WD trip to the tidal swimming pool, hike... More

Cambutal is definitely a very special place and Hotel Cambutal adds to the beauty of this amazing little beach town. The beach goes forever in either direction with spectacular surf and pristine grey sand. The staff and owners are very attentive, food was good, room were tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean with a great balcony over looking the beach. If you... More

This was my second time to Panama and Cambutal (where we have bought a small beachfront lot and plan to build a vacation home in the near future!). The first time, about five years ago, I believe this place was still under construction. This time we got to stay here and LOVED IT! The place is beautiful, especially the large... More

Second super bowl at Hotel Playa Cambutal (2012 & 2014) Great accomodations and accomodating staff. Pool adjacent to beach - hard to beat. Just ask- they do their best to provide for your pleasure. Rooms clean and comfortable, enjoyed pizza night, plenty of ice cold beer. Great location, southern most point of Panama.

This hotel is right on the beach, extremely clean and the staff are wonderful. The manager is a dream - not only knowledgeable, helpful and does what he says. The rooms are large, very clean and the shower is great. Not only air conditioning that works, also a lovely ceiling fan. The food is good with great service. I was... More

Best choice for that area. Hard- working staff (Kennedy), et al. Nice complimentary breakfast. Good restaurant/bar food. Rooms are spacious, hotel steps from beach where there are good waves. Place is clean, well-kept. Down the road to Fonda Nubias where you can eat seaside at the 'primer lugar' at Cambutal. Can't wait for the next stay.

Recently our family traveled to Cambutal for my son's wedding. We loved our stay at the Hotel Playa Cambutal. The rooms were lovely; each one had an ocean view. The hotel is made even more beautiful by the unusual and beautiful wood work. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a wonderful one. They even planned... More

Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff and good food. Most expensive in area, but you get what you pay for. Perfect for families or surfers with a little extra $ in their pocket. Great beach break directly in front of hotel. The swell was massive when we were there. The points were too big (at least for non-professionals). This break... More
