“What a find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

OKAY I agree with reviews, it is pricey. However, it is so perfect. We were going to the Decameron DUH! us and 5000 other people lobby 1, 2 or 3 . So off to hunt a place, we happened on a sign and followed a very local road to heaven. As I am writing this using the WIFI I can hear the wind in trees and other people at their cabins enjoying it. The beach is excellant and not many people. It has been vary relaxing and peaceful. We would come back.

Sweet appartments, extremely close to the calm nice beach. The little cabins are spacious (can sleep up to four in the beachfront ones). Equipment is basic (gas stove, pots and cuttlery, etc...) but do the job. Bathroom a bit small. Cool terrace with Hamoc and Parasol for beach.
Beach at 30m.... no one there, but it gets HOT. No real restaurants nearby, so nring food. They light BBQ for you. Nice. A bit pricey for what it is - but hey, lack of competition. I really wonder why they dont have a little pool. Space is there. Staff friendly. Things are clean. They say there is wifi, but didnt have signal in room (maybe around reception?). Aircon either cold or warm.... in bewteen i dindnt figure out. Bring mosquito spray!

Would come back.... but too pricey foir every weekend.

Room Tip: Number 1 is closes to beach. all others quite similar, and still close to beach.

We were hesitant to book a villa at las Sirenas due to some very negative critics we found on this site, but as we wanted to find a relaxing spot on the Pacific Coast of Panama, we decided to give it a try.

When we arrived at las Sirenas, we were delighted to discover the setting of these beautiful villas in the tropical garden overlooking the Pacific. Each of them has a little terrace with dining table and hammock, and a BBQ that the caretaker lights up for you whenever you want. He also advised to buy the freshest seafood possible at the nearby Mercado de Mariscos, and we enjoyed incredible seafood on our terrace for each meal.

The Villas themselves are perfectly equipped and, to our surprise after reading earlier comments, perfectly maintained and clean. For us Frenchmen, the kitchen contained everything you would need.

Another great surprise was to discover the beach at the bottom of the villas, with incredible white sand, and where you can make long walks totally on your own, without anyone in sight.

We loved this place!

We stayed for 3 days, 4 of us, in one of the hilltop cabins. The cabin was very attractive, and there were flowers and blossoms on bushes and trees all around. We were on a birdwatching holiday, and were pleased to see red legged honeycreepers and orange-headed orioles in the pink flowering trees. Our hammock on our porch was super comfortable. As for accommodations, there was a bedroom for my wife and I, and our friends were on sofas in the main cabin room, that were comfortable enough for sleeping, but we needed to put up some silk fabric over the windows to give them privacy. It was just a little walk through a long flower-covered walkway to a lovely beach of soft sand. However, on the days that we were there, there were jellyfish in the water. We didn't see them, but we did get stung and others did too. Of course, that would have been up and down the beaches, all along the coast, likely. Overall, we were very pleased with the setting and the accommodations.

We have stayed in similar cottages/hotels in Akumal, Mexico, Sedona, Arizona, Arenal Costa Rica, Playa Dulce, Guatemala, and this cottage was the most disgusting place we have stayed in a long time. Literally could not wait to leave. The first night there were no sheets for the kids' beds, there is no ac for the main room (or any sofa or any place to site) and when there was no key for the safety deposit box the hotel manager suggested we just place our valuables in the trunk of the car and park the car with the trunk facing our room. Overall I am just happy to be out of there and hope we didn't bring back any bed bugs or anything similar. The beach, by the way, is pretty but did appear to have some minor jellyfish. We knew that there was not pool but under the conditions it would have been nice to have any pluses at the location.

Room Tip: Stay away if you can, if you must maybe one of the cottages on the upper level at least delivers the...

The hut are in general OK. Several things need to be improved to charge what they charge. For instance, the bed in the living room had not sheets, the kitchen needs some maintenance andmore cleaning. The staff makes you feel that they are doing a favour rather than servingor helping you. You can stay a night.
I mean the locationis very good. The facilities are OK, but the place is not maintained to a good standard.

The beach front location and the self-contained cabins make this a very comfortable, relaxing and fun place. They are older, but have been relatively well maintained and were clean. The sandy beach is great and a few steps away from the lower cabins. The undertow can be very strong and make swimming hazardous, but during our stay there were times when it was calm and delightful. The only downside was the front desk service. When we booked on line we never received any confirmation. It took us about half an hour to locate anyone when we arrived (afternoon) and when we finally found someone, he was extremely brusque. We met people the next day searching about for someone to check them in as well--and meanwhile the phone was ringing without answering.

Room Tip: 11 is the closest to the beach with the best and sunniest view.
