We were looking to experience a region of Panama which was more remote & showcased the ocean and beautiful beaches and escape from a busy life - HDM definitely fit the bill. We found it on Trip Advisor and after a lot of back and forth with Marissa, we decided that this was the place for us. She was very... More

in one Word: PARADISE!!! We stayed 3 days and 2 nights and didn't want to leave. The bungalows are perfect and all of them with an amazing view of the beach. You also get to see many macaws and toucans in the trees. All the staff made us feel at home. The only thing we recomend is that you should... More

This is truly a tropical paradise. We stayed 3 days, 2 nights. The resort did not disappoint. We enjoyed swimming at their white sand beach, swinging lazily in the hammocks, riding through the lush foliage in ATV's, and enjoying the spectacular views from every part of the resort. The only drawback is the noseeums that appear at dusk and dawn.... More

Marissa was wonderful in helping to arrange a last minute one day round trip visit to Hacienda del Mar. John Maynard greeted us at the plane in the air-conditioned van and taught us some interesting facts about the island on the way to the resort. They had a boat waiting for us with captain Hiro to take us on a... More

Hacienda del Mar is a high ticket rustic resort on a paradisaical deserted island located on the Pacific Ocean, some 60 miles from Panama City, Panama, I use the word "rustic" because there is nothing fancy about the installations. The cabins have air conditioning, hot water, clean sheets, and a clean bathroom. And that's it. The island has some 50... More

My husband and I immensely enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our cabin was rustic, no TV, no telephone, no WiFi in the room (only around the pool and restaurant area), yet very intelligently and generously decorated. Mattresses are very comfortable and showers are good. The service and kitchen are excellent. We enjoyed the snorkeling tour of the beaches, the... More
