I absolutely fell in love with the town of Pedasi, Panama. It's seaside (2 beaches about 3 minutes away, friendly people, horse back riding, popular surfer beach about a 40 minute drive, boat ride over to the Isle Iguana, plenty of great restaurants and tour companies, grocery store and laundry close at hand. Stayed at the Dona Maria Hostel. Room... More

I stayed for 3 nights in March and felt very safe and comfortable here as a solo traveler. I would call this more of a small Inn... 6 rooms on the upper floor above the home of some lovely ladies on the main road of a small town. Rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable. Good quiet AC. I loved... More

We had a really nice stay at this hotel in Pedasi - we had no reservations and were able to be accommodated. The rooms are simple, clean and there is AC. We had a nice open living room space to ourselves. The owner was super nice with excellent English. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it. There... More

After bitter disappointment with a so-called "resort" south of Pedasi that was nothing but an isolated cabin, we stopped at Hostal Dona Maria to see about a room. We were shown to a lovely room with queen bed and private bath. On the way to see the room, we noted 2 "porch" areas on the 2nd floor. The rates were... More

Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The AC worked well and the rooms were cleaned every day. The staff were friendly. The TV had no English channels which was weird considering and they allowed smoking on the deck in public areas. A fine room nonetheless.

We stayed 3 nights in November. We were greeted warmly by the owner. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good, served on an outdoor patio. The hostal is right in Pedasi and convenient to everything. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating . Very reasonably priced.

Hostal Dona Maria is a great place to stay in Pedasi. While the rooms are typical of a hostal, they are extremely clean and there are wonderful common seating areas all over the property. Their staff is excellent, friendly, helpful, and even willing to give Spanish lessons to those of us who are challenged! Breakfast is included, and not just... More

We arrived to Pedasi, we inquired about a few rooms, the owner was more than happy to show us the room and gave us a good price then happily wave as we walked away to check out a few more places. She was right, we would be back.. We stayed for 4 nights in this quaint place. The owner treated... More

My girlfriend and I just returned from Panama in which we spent 3 nights in Pedasi at Hostal Dona Maria. The room was small but very clean and cozy, breakfast was great, and the site was exceptional. On our second night the power had gone out all over Pedasi and as we sat outside the host was kind enough to... More
