This is a quaint boutique hotel, the owners first came and planted teak wood trees, later they built the hotel from said plantation, the rest is history. Los destiladeros has becomed a first rate place for the jetsetters, even Michael Jordan owns a home there. Views are great. Villa Camilla offers first rate, exclusive accommodations and food that matches its... More

I booked at Villa Camilla due to what was shown at their web page for my wedding aniversary. What a mistake!. I consider their web page false advertsing. First of all the photos shown over Internet are photos of a property that is closed. Do not have swiming pool, although on their photos they show one. The hotel restaurant is... More

Dear Mr. Fabrega, My team and I felt very sad to read your review, as by the time you left, we had no clue you had such an unpleasant stay. Since Villa Camilla's main building closed its doors to the general public last March, we have done our best to inform guests of the change. However, the internet is a... More

Dear guest, I would like to thank you very much for your feedback following your stay at one of the private properties that Villa Camilla manages. Taking into consideration that Movistar is the only cell-phone company that works in this area, we advise all of our customers to come, through their reservation confirmation of this fact; so they can bring...

My wife and I have stayed at Villa Camila a few times and are always so impressed with the unique style and beautiful tropicalized spanish-colonial / morrocan architecture of the place. Every time we go we stay in a different room, and every room is totally different and unique in design. The rooms are extremely comfortable, spacious, super high ceilings,... More

In planning our first trip to Panama we researched carefully our choices and some have fallen short of our expectation, but not the Beach Suites at Villa Camilla!!! It was delightful from beginning to end. We drove from Panama City, long drive, but arriving at Villa 14 was worth every minute of the drive! Perfect for our family, our daughters... More

I've been living on an off in Panama for 5 years and have traveled all over the country. Villa Camilla is truly the best place I've every stayed in Panama. The last reviewer is correct that the old hotel is being made into a large Villa rental, but following the hotel website link here still brings you to the write... More

Alas, I found out that the boutique hotel is under renovations and when ready will be rented as a single vila. They now offer rooms at the ocean lofts and beach suites and see that TA has a separate listing for... More
