Isla Palenque is a unique private island paradise to relax, rewind, indulge and explore nature. Upon arrival, we sensed that relaxation and service were the focus as we were greeted by Celianis with a refreshing cool tropical drink. Our family of four ( 2 adults, one teen and one lovely child) experienced five days of the very best in fine...

We had an amazing time in this beautiful small resort. There were only ten of us there and the staff attention was very personal. Meals were expensive for Panama, but very tasty and the waiters were terrific. Breakfast was included in the room rate. We did a snorkelling excursion and the staff thought of everything. They took us to a...

What a great experience! We spent 6 lovely days on this amazing island and practically had it to ourselves. We had originally booked a forest suite but upon arrival were upgraded to the Ocean Suite! What a lovely room complete with indoor and outdoor shower! The food was incredible and the staff were so attentive. It is obvious they truly...

We stayed at this wonderful place in September 2016 and it was the most wonderful holiday we can imagine! The resort is so wonderful. It gives you the experience of living in the wild, right in the jungle and at the same time offers you the possibility to relax in luxurious appartments and enjoy a high class cuisine. We enjoyed...

The resort and staff were AMAZING! We stayed at the resort one week in December and wish we had booked longer. ALL staff made this the special resort that it was. Benny was truly a gift, as was Frances. They demonstrated how much they cared and always went above and beyond. When we had to get up early to go...

My girlfriend and I spent a full week on Isla Palenque after a three month trip around latin America; we were looking for a (very) confortable hotel—away from those huge chained-brand hotels that are so easy to find in Panamá or elsewhere—where we could rest before going back home. Well, I have to say that we got far more than...

Just got back from an amazing stay from this luxury eco-boutique resort. If you are looking to get away from it all come here. We were there during the green or rainy season but did not have to use our rain gear once during our five-day stay. Thought it was a perfect time to go plus with the added humpback...

With an island of 400 acres, a staff of about 10 people and a maximum number of 20 guests, you really feel like you have the island to yourself. With a selection of beaches to explore and enjoy, beautiful accommodations - we had the ocean estate rooms- and amazing meals, we had everything we could want. The staff wear many...

Isla Palenque is a wonderful place to get away from it all. The beach is absolutely beautiful, remote, and deserted! The bar affords wonderful music, drinks, and friends staff. The lodge itself is spacious, refreshing, and geared toward the client - the pool is beautifully situated to look over the ocean, the restaurant is quiet and comfortable, and the rooms,...
