During our stay all of the staff, avi, Carl, Kiki, Omer, to name a few went above and beyond and provided us all with an amazing stay. We're quite a wild bunch and they handled us all wonderfully. Above all else... More

This place is impossible to find. Don't go in the dark, you won't find it. I left a black hooded sweatshirt In the closet, emailed The hotel twice and they ignored me, no response. Disappointed, now someone has a nice NorthFace hoody. Nice pool and beach.

The stay was also great. Awesome waves, great food, nice new rooms and lots of hot water! I will come back... More

If you are visiting this area, El Sitio is a must stay! At no point did we feel unsafe. It seems obvious to me, but when traveling, do not bring 6 figures in cash and jewelry - no matter where you go. My husband and I came here without reserving rooms anywhere because we wanted to check out the area... More

Beautiful rooms, good food, and good surf. We were staying in Playa Blanca, but decided to drive to Playa Venao for the surf. The first place we stopped was El Sitio and we ended up staying the night because it was such a beautiful place. The food was good too. Overall, it was the nicest place we visited in Panama....
