I'd like to use my characters wisely and save the great food! staff! locale! for the others. It was all of that and more, but what you need to know as it pertains to RAINY SEASON is this: Bring lots of bug spray and sun tan lotion. Bring travel sizes of both for excursions. I think they sell these too,...

This place is truly magical. Unbelievable natural beauty, luxurious accommodations designed with incredible eye for detail and ingeniously placed throughout the forest.... Isla Palenque is every nature lover's dream vacation. You can encounter incredible wildlife just relaxing by the pool (howler monkeys are EVERYWHERE) but the regularly scheduled tours allow you to see/experience even more. The boat trip to Isla...

I can't even begin to put into words the vacation we just had here. The setting is gorgeous, the staff is very friendly and the food is delicious! From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel welcome. They went out of their way to accommodate my picky eating and always had a smile on their face. They went...

We we looking for a vacation that was something different and we certainly got that on our trip to Isla Palenque. It was an adventure in and of itself just getting here as we had to stay overnight in Panama City and take a short flight into David the next day. But once we stepped off the boat and were...

From the first moment of arrival with Ricardo in the boat and Benny with a cocktail at the resort, you know you are someplace special. We stayed 8 nights in the oceanfront Estate room. Many nights there were only 2-3 couples there. This resort fosters a sense of neighborhood. You know everyone who works there and you know the other...

This is such a beautiful and peaceful place! I don't know how it turns out when they have built all the villas they have in mind, but at the moment you can feel like Robinson Crusoe, except that you will get the comfort of a very good hotel and an excellent service with a very dedicated and welcoming staff.

This was our second time to Isla Palenque and man was it awesome! This island and its staff are incredible. This visit we brought 7 of our close friends to experience the island with us. Most of the time we honestly felt like the island was ours. The staff, bartenders, wait persons, and guides were always available and always trying...

Wendy and I stayed in both the hotel Garden Room and the Tented suites over a 4 day period in late March. Extraordinary, Superb and other similar adjectives simply do not do the experience justice. The tranquility of the location, the almost individually private deserted beaches and the extensive variety of flora and fauna complemented by the unceasing but non-invasive...

We stayed at the Isla Palenque resort mid-March at the end of a 16 day ’adventure’ tour of Panama. We booked the four night discovery package on the Island in one of the tented suites and from the minute we arrived we knew that Isla Palenque was something truly special. We chose a tented suite because we wanted to have...

My family stayed 5 nights at the main hotel/ B&B, and it was amazing. Totally unlike the island experience I've had before - internet, Ipad in the hotel room, all totally new. What was absolutely amazing though, is the fact that the animals were most definitely not afraid. Vultures soared overhead, along with a falcon that visited the beach with...
