perfect white sand beach, crystal clear water, dirt road runway, and hardly any other travelers. that's paradise! it felt like we had the island to ourselves! only caveat, the food was not quite as great as the prices suggest, and there is no stated laundry facility. But we would return in a heartbeat!!

I have no words to describe our experience, a place to never forget and to return as soon as we can. I recommend it for couples or families. We arrive from Marcos Gelabert Int. airport and 20 minutes after we were there, then the hotel pick us up and about 20 minutes ride to the hotel. All the cabins are... More

After having stayed at another resort on a nearby island, we found this to be head and shoulders above the competition. Accommodations had spectacular views, there's plenty to do, and the setting is spectacular. There are two things to be aware of - first, nothing here is done in a hurry. Dinner and food service is all laid back and... More

We stayed on the island for only 3 nights and were completely satisfied overall. The short flight over was on a small plane and I had pleasant experience despite our luggage not being on the flight. Once we arrived, we took a 20 minute drive to the resort, passing a large crocodile in a creek on the way. Once at... More

Within a very short plane trip from Panama City, you can totally disconnect from your daily routine in this gorgeous place. It is the only hotel in the island with breathtaking sceneries that will definitively make your stay an unforgettable one. The beach is also “kids friendly”, so all can enjoy. The hotel staff is very helpful and would make... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in September. We debated between the Pearl Islands, San Blas or Bocos Del Toro for the "beachy" part of our trip and we were SO GLAD we chose here. First and foremost, booking here is made super easy as Marissa who handles reservations, also handles booking your flight to/from the island... More

A short prop plane trip from Panama City lands you in an unspoiled paradise of an Island. The nature, scenery and beaches are top notch. You are literally are the only ones on the island enjoying it. The sunny, relaxing vacation we hoped for was in every way catered for by the staff at the resort. Whether it be lounging... More

Amazing is a little word for our experience on Hacienda del Mar. We like to do internal tourism in Panama, and i never tought I would find such a place, but I did.

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
