Great service at the restaurant. The ladies working there are very pleasant. Small simple menu with good basic american bar food. Ice cream floats but no root beer! The BBQ is quite bad. Undercooked chicken that was still cool in the middle. Hardly any BBQ char or flavor. Great french fries. Solid burger. Unfortunately they started a large yard waste... More

My husband and I lived in an apartment at XS Memories for 8 months after driving to Panama from the U.S. The owners, Dennis and Sheila, took great care of us. I can not say enough about how good they were to us! They have been in Panama for 20+ years and have valuable experience they are willing to share.... More

This place is really outdated. The place is also for sale, so I guess that no further investments will be made. We do not recommend this place for the following reasons 1. The staff is moody and look as if everything is too much asked 2. The sheets are so thin, you can see right through it 3. The airco... More

We drove to Panama with our RV from Colorado and parked it here with full hookups for a long-term stay. I can tell you that after 6,000 miles it was great to find a safe place to unwind!! Dennis and Sheila are such great people and have a beautiful property. They were very welcoming and we felt very much at... More

I found XS Memories by the owner of a different hotel in Santa Clara that ran out of rooms, she called Sheila (The owner of XS) and made sure they had rooms available. The location it's very easy and even though is not next to the beach is only 5 minutes away from it (if you have a car). They... More

This restaurant and motel is just off the Pan Americano highway and it was a 15 minute walk to the excellent Santa Clara beach so the location was superb. The rooms were clean and simple with working AC. It's the grounds that make the place special with plenty of beautiful plants and trees. The place has multiple exotic birds as... More

Spent several nights at XS Memories. Very friendly and helpful hosts. The place is kept immaculate and the pool and facilities were welcome. The bathrooms were very clean. Accidentally left equipment behind which hosts protected until we could return for it.

We are overlanding and drove to XS Memories to camp for a few nights. The location is good, near to the Pan Am without the noise. Our complaints were .....the pool had black mould growing on its walls..... and the toilets/ open air showers were not kept clean. The owners didn't make us feel welcome. Would say it was good...
