Our stay at Eco Venao was average. The good things I can mention about the place is that our house, La Casona, was very spacious. It has three bedrooms and enough beds for up to eight persons. There were enough bathrooms, two full and another one without shower. The cons about the place, specifically about La Casona was that the... More

Yesterday I had the best facial ever in my face and I am still thinking about it. It was given by Jade, who has just opened an excellent spa at EcoVenao, together with her husband, Derek, who gave a great massage to my wife. Jade is a brilliant professional, having studied beauty treatment in North Carolina. She used a combination... More

Hi Pytagua, Thanks so much for your comments. Jade and Derek are working really hard on the new Nourish Spa inside Eco Venao. It`s very important to us hear that they are offering a good service. Thanks again, and we hope you'll choose Eco Venao the next time you're in the area. Best regards, Eco Venao More

The dormitory is beautiful, the guests are chill, the area is very nice for surfing and hiking and lots of other stuff. The staff is relaxed, friendly and beautiful. Besides a communal kitchen and places to chill in hammocks, play tabletennis and more, they have a nice restaurant/bar, with parties once a weak, as well as a movie night. It... More

Eco Venao is a unique place. What I like most is the fact that the property although it extends down to the beach there are no buildings close to it... preserving the coastal setting. I am sad to see what is happening further down the beach (blue venao, selinas, private houses etc..) Developments that have had no respect for the... More

I spent around 12 days in Eco Venao and I have no regrets! If you want to spend your holiday in connection with nature is definitively the right place to go. I woke up every day hearing the ocean, surrounded by the wildlife. You can have a walk in the wide property of Evo Venao or on the 5km wide... More

This place surpassed my expectations by a very long shot. It's a rustic and natural experience with the only small exceptions being that the hospitality and lodging is world class. My time spent there was so relaxing and consisted of surfing, chopping the most succulent pineapples while lounging in my hammock overlooking the bay, eating perfectly prepared arroz con pescado...

We came to Playa Venao from the US for a 7-day wedding event at nearby hotel El Sitio. My group chose Eco Venao for the scenery/wildlife and the ability to have a full house, and as a group of 6 we found Espavé to be the most comfortable choice. Eco Venao as a piece of land is stunning and exciting.... More

My wife, child, and I only went to the restaurant. We had some of the best food and drinks that we had in Panama. I had the lunch special, which was panamanian-style rice and beef, while my wife and daughter had fish. All of us raved about the food and my wife and I also really enjoyed capirinhas. The restaurant... More

I did not book in advance with eco venao. And, although the type of accommodation I was looking for was not available when I arrived, they offered me an upgrade for the same price. And this has been a wonderful experience to stay in the cabana entirely made of wood. The monkeys could be seen in the nearby trees while... More

I spent three nights at Eco Venao and was impressed by what i found. The room was comfortable and the food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and great tasting (as a Vegan, it was nice also to have some options on the menu for myself) the staff were very helpful and the location was perfect. I live in Panama... More
