La Loma is an object lesson in how to run a jungle lodge. First, it's in the forest. Second, the cabins are top notch, beautiful hardwood deck houses. Spacious and mui quiet. Great beds, nets, views. The food is spectacular and features very local ingredients. Best chocolate mole we ever tasted. The island of Bastimentos is large and offers all... More

Just got back from this amazing place and cannot recommend it enough. The owners of this resort are true visionaries in the way they developed the hotel lodge complex on a island far enough off the Panama coast to feel secluded but close enough to other amenities to ensure a whole host of diversions close by (beach, hiking trails, kayaking,...

We were lucky enough to get 2 nights at la loma ( they only open tues-sat ) the concept is amazing it's is exactly what I invisage when someone says Eco retreat. The all wood open rooms let you live in the forest all from the cover of the mosquito net ! I booked this place because of the reviews... More

It's been almost a year since we were at La Loma and I think I didn't write a review sooner because it's hard to describe how special this place is. We frequently reminisce about what an incredible experience it was (and discuss when we can hopefully go back!). We stayed for two nights but wish we had stayed longer. The... More

When Henry tells you that he writes all the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and sacrifices guests to the volcano, don't believe him! My girlfriend and I spent Christmas at La Loma and could not have asked for a better experience. Henry, Margaret, their son Lucio and Margarets parent's, Kit and Michael were the most welcoming hosts; visiting here was like... More

This is the easiest recommendation I've ever made. Our family of five (youngest child is 15) spent 7 nights at La Loma and wished we were staying longer. The quick reasons you want to stay here: - you get to live in the middle of the jungle - Henry and Margaret (the owners) are outstanding hosts - they will ensure... More

One of the most magical and charming places on earth. From the minute we arrived on the island, the La Loma team was friendly, welcoming and fun. This place will remain in your dreams for life - perfectly curated cabins, with thought out details, a little tray of tea and pastries delivered in the morning, community dining with the other...

I just spent 1 night at La Loma on my first ever trip to Panama. I traveled solo and stayed in the highest cabin on the hill. It was an epic, amazing experience. I don't really know how to begin reviewing this place...there's so much to say. Price: I'm only addressing this first bc it is more expensive than many... More

We visited La Loma for 2 nights. It was an incredible experience. The cabin was comfortable. Best way to describe it is rustic rainforest luxury! The walk up to the cabin was a bit of a hike but the view was worth it. If you aren't interested or able to make a steep 4-5 min walk (trail is well maintained)... More

La Loma was a fantastic experience. I am a city girl without an ounce of nature style traveling experience. If you are anything like me I would recommend going in with an open mind. Spending 24/7 in the middle of the jungle was overwhelming, but the people who worked there always made me feel right at home and comfortable through... More
