Small relaxed hotel, great for a getaway or surf stop. A little hard to find without a navigation system, as it is off the beaten track at the end of the street. Good hearty breakfast and value for money stay. 4 rooms means it is fairly quite, however there was a party close by with trance music on the Saturday... More

I've never felt so welcome!! It was like home away from home. Very beautiful and well kept. There were several beaches and little restaurants you could walk to daily. Everyday was an adventure. It's located in a residential area tucked away in a little corner. It's very quiet and peaceful. There's a restaurant/bar downstairs and the 4 rooms are upstairs.... More

This is the only place I will ever stay in when I visit Panama! The owners were wonderful, welcoming, kind, and caring! I have never felt so at home at a "location of business." They did everything in their power to make us feel comfortable. I could go on and on about how spectacular they are. My family and I... More

We visited for one night at the end of April and enjoyed our visit very much. It is a pleasant little hotel... clean, spacious with comfortable rooms. We were travelling with a group of 2 families with children. Dining on the veranda was lovely and the kids really enjoyed running around the garden, and the parents enjoyed that the kids... More

Living in Panama City sometimes you just need to get out of the city. This place was exactly what my fiancé and I needed. A small lodge (just 4 rooms), very big room, comfy bed, air conditioning, porch/balcony, walking distance from the beach and more! They have a great collection of micro brewery beers as well in the bar. Breakfast... More

Came across this location during the evening seeking a cup of coffee. Was pleased by the service it offered and while we had the coffee we also enjoyed the micro brewery beer selection they had. Came back the following day for breakfast with the whole family and it was great. Well presented, food tasted great and service was very attentive.... More

During our two-weeks in Panama my wife and I left Panama City to explore up the Pacific coast. I had booked a room for two nights here based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed and in fact it was even better than we expected. We had no problem finding it using our Googlemaps navigation. We were greeted... More

A quaint lodge with 4 rooms. They are large, clean and the service was impeccable. It is not 5 start hotel service, but just excellent service. Friendly staff, great food and a wonderful patio to eat it on. Not expensive and only a couple minutes walk to the beach. If you want a place to relax and enjoy the beach... More

Can not say it was all bad. When we first stayed there we were disappointed, later after living in Panama for a while it is probably one of the better places in San Carlos. Our biggest complaint was no transportation from the airport. They apparently hire this service out but the person never showed to pick us up from the... More
