Great surf beach hotel with great food and staff. The spa offers an excellent Shiatsu massage at a very reasonable price. The owners are always there to make sure the guest are happy. I love this place and recommend it to anyone who likes a laid back, beautiful setting, with great food. Oh yes, and there are lots of good... 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.

I forgot my Wallet in my room when we checked out! I was 4 hours away before I call back. The wallet was returned to me the next day. Richard and his staff were honest and nothing was missing. 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....

El Sitio in Playa Venao was awesome. We did not have reservations and were being spontaneous with a group of 6. El Sitio was accommodating and friendly. The rooms were clean and beachfront. The food at the restaurant was great. The beaches were fairly empty and we enjoyed every minute of our time here.

Apart from the excellent view from the beach front rooms, the service was outstanding. The rooms are totally comfortables, mattress, pillows, showers, everything was just great. Simple decoration, but matches perfectly well with the atmosphere. Besides, the service and personal attention received from ALL the staff including the ones at the restaurant was valuable. The food was also excellent. My... More

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