I returned back to California yesterday from Panama, and I can't stop thinking about Hotel Villa Romana. One word: Perfection. We knew from the photos that it was a beautiful villa, but we had no idea it would be this good. We stayed at the Villa with a large group occupying many of Romana's rooms.
Each and every room was clean, beautifully designed, unique, and private-most with ocean views and hammocks. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the rooms smelled amazing, and every time we returned to the room, the gorgeous tile floors were shinny and clean (lovely to not walk in sand when you enter your room). Oh, and the bathrooms! Beautiful bathrooms, some with views and plenty of space. I suggest you stay in the upstairs Garden suite.
Every morning we strolled to the main building where breakfast was cooking and fruit, coffee and fresh bread awaited us In the dinning area overlooking the ocean and crashing waves. The kitchen staff (very friendly) took our orders and we enjoyed eggs and fresh tortillas... Drinks were made on request and I had a difficult time deciding between the variety of fresh fruit juices. Heaven! Did I mention the coffee?? Mmmmm
I felt like I was at home. Especially at the pool. But the highlight of Villa Romana, was actually the manager, Algis. He is the friendliest, funniest and hardest working man I've ever met while traveling. What an amazing person. From his stories, to his charm and helpfulness, Algis made sure our stay was comfortable, unique and memorable.
This Villa is located in a perfect, private and beautiful place. Large enough to meet every need, but intimate enough to enjoy privacy and quiet beauty. The price is more than reasonable, and I can not wait to go back.
Although I hope this gem stays somewhat a secret, I feel inclined to share out unforgettable experience and to support this beautiful destination.
Thank you for everything!
