Highly recommended! So chill and beautiful to sleep in this glass-bottle cabin! Waking up with the soft-colored light of the sun filtered through the thousands of bottles artistically arranged in inspired patterns. This couple obviously care about life and nature and are great hosts. A little remote, away from the beach but easy access. The owner drove us daily to... More

As the title says, the service was excellent, the Italian couple that run the place, along with their 2 dogs were super friendly and helpful. Their breakfast is all home made and very tasty! The only problem is that the place is a 10 minute drive from the beach. The drive however, is a very pleasant one. I super recommend... More

We originally booked for three nights, but stayed four. We LoVed the bottle cabin and the hospitality Erika and Fabio extended us. The room was very comfortable and well styled. The views from the backyard were spectacular and a pleasant way to start and end the day. It's a nice and scenic stroll to the cute town of Las Lajas... More

Step through the doors of La Pepita Marinon and take in the immaculate and quirky surroundings... starting with my accommodation - an owner built, glass-bottled bungalow! Walls are splashed with varnished stone and a myriad of mismatched bottles, soft bed and hand-made furniture add to the appealing and homely feel. The hosts, Fabio and Erika, couldn’t be friendlier, arranging trips... More

After stop at David, we discovered a nice B&B at Las Lajas near to the Pan American Highway. The experience was fabulous, the cabaña was perfect and so beautiful. The construction of that Wall with bottle of glass is something unique that you cannot see everywhere. The inside was modern, design mix with solid wood and glass...all the space are... More

Friendly people here and comfortable room with a unique set up. The owners have built a separate guest house made from concrete, bottles and rocks. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and interestingly designed. There are friendly dogs on the property and a great restaurant nearby. The biggest issue for us is that we were travelling by... More

We traveled from Pennsylvania at Christmas time just to stay in the incredibly beautiful "bottle house'! My husband choose Panama and I choose La Pepita de Maranon! He agreed of course as he creates stain glass windows and sun catchers that use recycled glass and bottles. We both wanted to experience living inside such a changing light filled space. We... More
