“Informative, excellent hosts share this beautiful B & B complete with delicious breakfasts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Anne Marie and Rene are super hosts. Their knowledge of Panama helped shape the rest of our vacation. Their recommendations were right on target. The B & B is wonderful. It has tasteful, spacious rooms with comfortable beds and gourmet breakfasts.

This is a very nice place. You join Anne-Marie and Rene, you join their son Vincent and you join their local friends who drop in too. Member of the family for a day or two - quite nice. Breakfasts were delicious and the rooms was very comfortable and well furnished. I would suggest that Rene not ask for payment until the end of the stay. We were a bit uncomfortable with that, but it was a minor ding in an otherwise great experience. All should know this is a cash only establishment as are many places and restaurants in Panama. I highly recommend El Litoral -
...and to see Anne-Marie in the middle of El Cangrejo shouting from their car "are you lost" was a very funny moment.

Everything about El Litoral is "THE BEST" Starting with the owners, Anne-Marie & Rene, who are very attentive and become friends quickly. The home, yard, pool, Yoga studio and massage pavillion are all excellent. The little touches, like bottled water in the bathroom, nice thick towels, comfortable bed with soft sheets, nice soap at the sink and in the shower. Then you come to the breakfast, every morning is something different, but great. Starting with a bowl of fresh fruit, ice cold juice, great coffee to order, pure Canadian maple syrup for the waffles, four kinds of jam for the toast including "coffee" and mango.The pool is sparkling clean, warm and there are large thick towels for when you lounge by the pool. In the morning you can join the yoga class or order a massage.
All in all, this is "THE PLACE" to stay in Coronado. By the way the owners are trilingual, speaking French, Spanish and English.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Just came back from my second vacation in Panama. If you ever travel in the Coronado area, make sure to stay at the El Litoral. The B&B is a lovely and warmly decorated home. The rooms are comfy and cozy. The terrace, pool and garden offer various relaxing and peaceful corners. Every morning you’ll get a unique and delicious breakfast. And if you feel like it, you can even try a class of yoga, fly yoga or meditation with a certified teacher. But best of all, what will make your stay an absolute charming experience is the friendly welcoming of the owners Anne-Marie, René and Vincent, not to mention their pet friends Rudolph, Canelle and Friend. Thank you for everything. And thumbs up! Gina and Michel

Anne-Marie, Rene & their son Vincent (who is adorable) are the nicest people you could possibly want to meet! We are looking to retire in Panama and they showed us properties and gave us all kinds of helpful info on moving there. After spending 3 amazing days visiting the Coronado area we traveled all over Panama. We made an easy decision that Coronado was where we wanted to live, so we returned to El Litoral for another day before we returned home. They have a lovely & welcoming home. Rene makes the best breakfasts and we were made to feel like part of the family. We ca not say enough good things about them and are looking forward to moving to Panama and having them as friends. We stayed at two other B & B's & neither came close to how well we were treated at El Litoral. An absolute must stay when visiting Panama. Thank tou Anne-Marie, Rene & Vincent. We miss you already. We will be back.

We stayed here for 3 nights searching for a place to live and were made to feel at home by Rene, Anne Marie, and Vincent. Everything here is of the utmost quality with a feel of home and extreme friendliness. They are both a wealth of information on anything that we asked about and also pointed us in the right direction for things we weren't sure of. We stayed at another facility this past March and there is no comparison at all, El Litoral is the BEST.

Room Tip: Book early!
