It stands up to all the excellent reviews. Nothing was less than "exceeds expectations". Every whim you could think of is taken care of by the outstanding staff (Jak & Brie, Roger, Mr. Kelly) and owners, Henry & Margaret. For example, they overheard that our daughter does not like bananas - guess what? The next morning, the daily early-morning "room-service"... More

I recommend an excursion to this remote jungle paradise---best snorkeling ever--few to urists. Monkeys and sloths right outside porch...only 4 huts...no air con amidst intense humidity but adventure is about attitude and letting go right? Great meals prepared each nite (community style) and kayaks always available....... Catch the Panama Canal prior...... Owners and managers beyond generous and helpful....

My wife and I spent two weeks in Bocas del Toro for our honeymoon. We traveled around staying at different places but La Loma was by far the most incredible part of our trip. Pulling up to the dock felt like we had traveled back in time. Enormous old mangrove trees canopy over a small dock with cayucos tied up... More

The experience at La Loma is dreamlike. To sleep in the jungle in an open-air cabin crafted of jungle woods, indescribably tasteful details and services provided is truly other worldly. Margaret and Henry have created a magical atmosphere on their outstanding property by providing unmatched attention to quality foods, activities for everyone, incredibly well-chosen staff members and superb services.

La Loma was truly the highlight of our 2 week trip to Panama. We traveled as a family with our 7 year old daughter. Every aspect of this stay was outstanding, from the location, the natural beauty of the jungle, the rooms and the food, to the people who live and work here. We felt like we were welcomed into...

Ever wake up one morning realizing that two old friends have spent the last decade of their lives building a paradise in the middle of the Panamanian jungle along the Caribbean coast, just so you can visit and enjoy a week of paradise? Well, then this your morning. Such is the reality waiting for you at La Loma. And I... More

For our honeymoon, we spent 23 days in Panama and were not quite sure what to expect. La Loma blew our expectations out of the water. The Service: In a country where the service often leaves something to be desired, our hosts (Henry, Margaret, Jack, Bri, Kelly etc) were constantly doing anything they could to help, were genuinely friendly, and...

Really loved La Loma! Even though it was a climb to Rancho #2 up the side of a hill, we felt we were part of nature. Three sides of the Rancho were open to the air with a wall behind the bed, where the bathroom was located. We felt as if we were in a nest! The owners, Henry and... More

We spent 2 amazing days at La Loma - the highlight of our 2 week trip to Panama. We booked the Rock pool cabin which is located close to the lodge. Arriving at La Loma was an experience! We were picked up by Mr Kelly from Bocas town and taken by boat to the lodge. Upon arrival, it really felt... More
