I came to Eco Venao without expectation and it still blew me away! I stayed in the dorms which are beautiful, completely within nature but they have cabanas if you want privacy aswell! The people, the food, the location, the nature....i will definitely be returning in the years to come. This was such a special experience for me so i... More

I´ve been travelling Panama for 5 weeks and must say: the one and only place that totally exceeded my expectations was this beautiful resort. Eco Venao has the most friendly staff, relaxed vibe and beautiful surroundings you can imagine. They put so much love and care in every detail you simply won´t want to leave ever again. Utterly recommended!!!

We stayed in a creek front cabana that we loved. It was simple, comfortable and offered us a wonderful connection to nature. Monkeys, birds, bats, lizards, all visited us regularly. I loved the simplicity of our stay. We hiked, surfed twice a day, ate wonderfully fresh and reasonable priced foods prepared at the restaurant on site. The restaurant staff all... More

What an amazing and relaxing spot. The staff and property were fantastic! I will return next year, and many to come. Highly recommend this hotel to travelers. This property is set in nature, the waterfalls on property are great to hike, and if you do so, keep climbing to the vista overlooking the beach.

Spent three days there with my family (two kids, 8 and 5 years) and enjoyed it thoroughly. Accomodation is in the midst of an reforested area, with howler monkeys climbing around just out the window. Within the area you have a good restaurant, a well equipped shared kitchen and a little shop, so there is no need to leave the... More

Amazing people, really nice and relaxed atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, spacious dorms and very nice food in the restaurant. We stayed for 9 nights in stead of 3 :)) we loved it! Also a really relaxed atmosphere for beginners and intermediate surfers this time of the year. Lots of different types of surf boards (Also soft tops)....girls: Bring a rash guard... More

great place to stay, their cabins are clean; if you love nature, this is the place for you. They also have houses fully furnished. The beach is great, nice sunsets and surfing. The small town of Pedasi is very close.

I stayed in the beautiful Casona with my family. The houses are set in a very nice dry tropical forest, and everything is very modern with air conditioning in the bedrooms and fully stocked kitchens. I don't know why a previous reviewer didn't think this place is "eco" enough. They are preserving a big chunk of endangered dry tropical forest... More

A really nice place to stay in the wilderness. The rooms are very rustic but still very nice in the "wild style". You have to like nature and animales to like it there. You can hear monkeys in the dschungel and there is a hike to a nice waterfull where you can take a bath. The stuff is also very... More

We went there with two very active kids and stayed two nights in the beautiful Villa Mango with astonishingly well equipped kitchen (6 burner stove with oven, huge fridge/freezer and anything else you need to prepare complete meals) and 3 comfortable bed rooms. The whole property of more than 100 hectares has 2 playgrounds, a river with waterfall, restaurant, horses,... More
