“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

This place is amazing. If you stay here, I'm sure you will relax and have a wonderful stay. the owners are kind but the main thing is that the "casitas" (the rooms and houses) are so nice, very close to the beach and some of them on the top of a little mountain from where you can see a beautiful view. It's quiet, relaxing (try the hammocks!) and the houses are clean.
Food is also good and the people who stay there have usually a very good vibe and talk to each other.

Room Tip: bring anti-insects because the "chitra" is hard over there...

We spent four days here, as research for a trip this summer with our kids who want to surf. We are definitely coming back and they won't be disappointed. Cabana was great, meals the best on the beach, and we tried everyplace. Nice vibe. We could have stayed longer.

Eco Venao has been recommended to us and I would love to pass on this recommendation to all of you! Relax, enjoy the scenery, the waves and the whole atmosphere at Eco Venao. We went horseback riding via the B&B and the trail was very nice for an inexperienced person as myself. The hike to the waterfall on their own land was clearly marked and a nice walk. All in all, highly recommended!

we stayed in the cabaña 2 for 1 week, number one has the bigger terrace ;) wake up call from the howler monkeys, frogs kept away the bugs, outdoor shower, not really a reason to go somewhere else. different food every day, horse riding through the new planted forest, sleeping in one of the hammocks. we had a great relaxing time! thanks

Room Tip: if you like nature, stay in the cabaña but bring earplugs.

We came to Eco Venao with recommendation from many people. it has the longest stretch of undeveloped beach while at the eastern end there are several new hotels being developed--it feels cramped there, but the food is good at El Sitio, although more expensive. I liked being in the trees with the beach below. The open air restaurant has lots of delicious variety, although the excellent Spanish chef we were told about has gone back home. The staff is friendly and helpful, most supporting their surfing habit working at the resort. William is said to be a great surf instructor, and yoga with Beverly is wonderful! We were upgraded from a Casita to Casa Mango, and were hesitant about sharing a house, but each family has its own sleeping tower and bathroom with a shared open air lounge and kitchen. And we loved our neighbors and their little girl! The best leather rocking chairs and hammocks made the sunsets even more fabulous. There is also a palapa by the beach with more hammocks.

Room Tip: Sounds like your budget will be accommodated by many room choices. They probably are all good. Fan...

My family was very happy that they made the long road trip from Colon Province, and they are eager to return. An undisturbed natural beach is ecoming a rare and precious thing. The lodgings were more than comfortable, even luxurious for remote areas of Panama, and we found delicious and healthy options at your open-air restaurant.

It was a very appropriate place for a family reunión with a 2 1/2 year old child. We had privacy and the luxury of a beach that was not at all crowded. The water's edge was shallow, the waves were gente, and my grand-daughter loved both the beach and the "pirate's lair" playground.

On our next visit we would like to try kayaking and play activities for pre-schoolers.

Come as you are, Relax and above all, enjoy and connect with nature and other fellow travelers. We’ve been visiting Eco Venao since 2007 and tried almost every one of their different types of accommodations. Clean, comfortable, and rightly priced, this charming lodge is suitable for solo travelers, couples and families. Eco Venao has a room for every budget. From a dorm bed to a fully equipped ocean view 4 bedroom house, have your pick. The El Panama Restaurant has Amazing Food, really the best Tuna I can remember. Everything is delicious. Sip through a Ron Abuelo and let the music play. There is a kitchen which come in very handy for cooking breakfast and other meals. Surf boards, paddle boards, kayaks, horses and yoga lessons are available. The facilities feature tropical vernacular rustic down to earth architecture and the Lodge manager, Nico, and his staff, is super friendly. Thank you Nico, Esteban, Lil Marie, Catalina and everyone for a great time every single time and congratulations for such a beautiful place. AP
