We arrived to the cabanas with a positive attitude even after hearing and reading some negative reviews. We walked up to reception to find no one there or anywhere to be found. After 15mins of walking around we were finally met by the owner. It was then we were informed that the kitchen would not be serving lunch or dinner... More

Some good and some bad things. Lets start with the good things. The owners are really nice. Its an italian couple who are laid back and friendly. The food taste is good. The location is beautiful, beach is 5 steps away and starfish beach is a 20 minutes walk. The down sides are that I think it's quite expensive. 20... More

We have been blessed to end up in this place. It is indeed pretty rare to spend time along a beautiful beach surronded by the lush of the jungle. The owners and the staff has been extremely helpful and very nice. Also the food was very good and the bread home-made! All the above being said: if you look for... More

My boyfriend and me are travelling through central america more than 6 months but we never saw a place that was that gorgeous! First of all, the beach, that is literally 5 steps away from the hostel, is the most beautiful in this area! It offers great snorkeling with corals and tropical fishes and WONDERFUL white sand beaches with calm... More

My girlfriend and me planned on staying a few days in Boca del Drago and ended up being there for 2 weeks! This is such an amazing place, either for singles, couples or families! Its directly on the most beautiful beach in Central America. It is perfect to relax (there are some hamocks), to get to know other people and... More

After 6 weeks travelling with our Kids (6 & 8 years) it was our first disappointing stay. Everything costs extra. Small portion of dinner and breakfast, we were still hungry afterwards. Very poor room standard, electricity only from 7pm to midnight, shower didn't work properly, kitchen corner not to use because there is nothing, we found a Skorpion in the... More

We were really disappointed from this so called hostel: 60 $ a night for a private room, no electricity (only 3 hours a day), 5 $ each towel (!!!), 5 $ p.p. for breakfast. Meals (pasta) at night 10 - 12 $. The italian couple was nice, but seems to try maximising profits due to the exclusive location (no other... More

So relaxing, beautiful and secluded. Very close to the Playa de Estrellas where you can see lots and lots of huge red sea stars - a humbling experience! The Italian staff is super friendly and very helpful!!!! It has a very familiar and genuine atmosphere. We loved it! Thank you for everything guys!!! Wishing you good luck for the future!... More

I went to Cabanas Estefany during my last trip in Panama!!I had the most relaxing holiday ever!!! You wake up in the morning and the first thing you hear is the sound of the sea. When you go to the reception you find a very friendly staff (Elena, Daniele, Marta, Nick and "La mamma")ready to suggest you the best things... More
