Words cannot express how wonderful this place is! My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon here. The staff, the people, the food and the accommodations helped make our trip spectacular. We stayed at a cabin located farthest from the lodge. Beautiful views, very romantic, and lots of wildlife and birds to see. Each morning, before breakfast, we were... More

And it was a great!!! the place is secluded into an amazing spot of nature, beautiful open-rooms with dramatic views to the bay (except rancho 1, which is so integrated into... More

Wow! We spent 4 wonderful nights here. We were traveling with our 7 and 12 year old children. The grounds were amazing. The rooms were amazing. The food was delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful! We stayed in cabin 3. It felt like we were sleeping in the trees. Beautiful views, wild life watching, a good breeze at night.... More

My husband and I came here for part of our honeymoon. We loved it so much that we ended up extending our stay for an extra night. The staff at La Loma had everything covered--from coffee/tea and muffins delivered to the cabin every morning, fresh, delicious meals, and lovely stories, all together making our stay feel like we were visiting...

We had high expectations and La Loma exceeded them. The reviews are all true. We stayed in cabin 2 and had great views of the bay and the jungle. The food is amazing and the staff is so friendly and welcoming, my girlfriend and I felt as if we were staying with old friends. If you're looking for an affordable,... More

I can't say much that everyone else here hasn't already, our short stay was really amazing. Henry and his wife and team of employees and interns are friendly, welcoming, laid back, and also provide amazing service and REALLY amazing food in a pristine jungle setting. Somehow they think of all the little details all the time. The cabanas (rooms?) are... More

Friendly staff and high quality little lodges. The rooms have no walls - only mosquito nets so you can really experience the jungle at night. The meals they serve is freshly cooked and has a lot of local elements. The whole enterprice is a rather social one and so they support local tribes, a school and kindergarden. They help a... More

Yes, it took me 5 months to sit down and write this review because I simply couldn't think of anything to say that hasn't been said before. All the superlatives have been used, all the beauty described in detail, I would really like to top that somehow but I don't know how. So I'll simply say that yes, everything is... More

This was by far the best place we stayed at in Panama during our 2 weeks there. The cabins are beautifully refined and the owners (magaret and Henry) took care of every single detail personally when they bought this land and built from scratch this amazing place. We had a cabin with a beautiful view on the jungle. There are... More

La Loma is a total treasure. We've traveled Central America quite a bit - I feel La Loma has been our best jungle + aquatic retreat experience. We enjoy off the grid adventures, especially when we encounter so many creature comforts and great services. Henry and Margaret are magnificent hosts and have created a fantastic/magical venue. Our cabana was set... More
