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

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
