Great landscape, beach, surfing, nearby mountain waterfalls, exquisite cuisine, fun bar area, live music shows, beach hotel rooms, pool area,... More

Fantastic spot on the Pacific Coast in Panama. Lovely beach, great pool, great beach bar. Reasonable priced food in the restaurant of good quality. Air-con put to good use as it was hot but worked very well. The hotel is on the beach front and the small village is so secluded it is like another world...

OK, the approach to this hotel and many others in this country are on dirt roads, full of pot holes and not exactly what was expected. Good thing we had an SUV.

Me and my friends were treated like kings in el sitio. Great service, luxury accomodation and a super friendly staff. We nearly walked past the place because we were under the impression it would be too expensive, but surprisingly prices were the same as any other hostel in the area. The staff really makes sure you´re having a good time.... More

We recently had 3 nights at El Sitio. The service couldn't have been better. The food was amazing. The staff were professional and friendly. Felt like we were being welcomed into someone's home. We will definitely return. Thanks to all for making our stay very special. Erica, you are a star!

Love the location, the hotel and it's hospitality! Great food. Beautiful beach. Beautiful people. Attention was super. Healthy menu! You will find the owners on site taking care of you and making sure you are well taking care off. This is a small hotel, for outdoor activities and for relaxation.
