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

The owners gave permission to service workers to go into our room while we were gone surfing and move all our things out of both rooms, and the safe. YES they opened safe and moved all the things into... 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

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...
