There is not much more to add to all the previous outstanding experience reviews here on TripAdvisor. We always consult TA first and I am happy to say that all the earlier reviews were right on the money! My GF and I stayed for 8 wonderful days. We arranged in advance with the Seagull for airport transportation from David airport and the driver was prompt and the vehicle was modern and clean. Our COPA flight arrived early in the AM yet the Seagull was prepared for our early arrival which was appreciated! We liked the fact that we could stay in a casita and we had a wonderful view of the bay. Our bed was comfortable, TV channels were plentiful, AC worked very well. Water pressure was on the money and plenty of HW. Room also comes with ceiling fan and safe. Bathroom was very modern. Suggestion would be to either replace or supplement the deck furniture with cushions as we had difficulty sitting outside for long periods of time. I also should mention no problem at all with the wi-fi signal! The pool is small and unheated but we never had an issue with crowding or finding a seat. The location is awesome as it is located directly below an awesome tree which attracts a ton of nature from howlers, black squirrels and many insects for your entertainment while at the pool. I should add there was plenty of shade. The food was really delicious and priced very reasonable. Our staff was friendly and service was excellent. I especially liked the fruit that was included every morning with our breakfast. I even had my first tree tomato! Grounds allow for plenty of walking and exploring. As others have said you can view howler monkeys and toucans almost every day. We also walked to Boca Chica and to an adjacent resort property exploring. In closing I want to add that it is the hosts of seagull that make you feel special. Both Melissa and Juan were wonderful and the pair made our trip the best! They answered every question and took the time to engage both of us in conversation. One of them was always there to answer any of our questions or concerns. Usually I require a lot of side trips to keep me busy but I have to say this was the most relaxing vacation I ever had, just hanging at the resort and relaxing under the, "Harry Potter" tree by the pool!

We had dinner here with six people. We did not spend the night here, although on our way from the Tiki Bar, where we had a georgeous Sundowner, to the restaurant, there are very nice bungalows. All beautiful and well kept. We actually ate up and down the menu with appetizer, main course and dessert. The cuisine has a slight Asian touch although the maître told us that Panamanian cuisine and Asian cuisine have a certain similarity because of the similar spices. It is impossible to disagree with that. It tasted fantastic, the service was very good and so was the Chardonnay and rum. All in all, excellent hospitality

What a gem of a property located on a hill over-looking a postcard picture perfect view of the water and islands. A true tropical paradise made even better by its attentive, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Imagine having breakfast on their outdoor patio and seeing toucans just a few feet away, or watching a family of howler monkeys in the trees in the evening. We would come back here in a heartbeat. FYI- the lodge sits on a hill and is about 100 steps down (and 100 steps back up) to the beach, dock, and beach bar. So this would be a challenge for anyone mobility impaired.

From the meet and greet to the departure moment, the Sea Gull cove hospitality was second to none. Melissa, Juan, the kitchen staff were superb. The garden and grounds are immaculate and you will know why after meeting Javier and his staff. Best moments? the restaurant; gourmet in the rain forest? No need to drive. the tiki hut on the water? beers, margies and laughter, elixir for the soul......beautiful bungalows with spit shine finishes and comfort. go.....

My wife and I visited in August 2021 for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We entered into a different world of peace and beauty, perhaps of the many places we have visited around this world, this tops the list. I'm so glad we chose Seagull Cove for many reasons. Melissa and Juan were incredible hosts, always ready to help us and attend to us, they even arranged for the a lab to come to our bungalow for the mandatory covid test for our return to the USA. Exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated and a wonderful restaurant for our dinners or anytime snacks. They also booked a fishing trip where I was picked up at our dock with snacks and drinks for my trip. Believe me, I am planning on returning with family and friends. I almost forgot, Juan makes the most amazing margaritas with limes picked from trees behind the restaurant area. Enjoy!

A great little gem in Boca Chica. The hotel is really cute. The bungalows aren’t missing any comfort but have a great view and soundtrack to hear wildlife. The restaurant s to die for, such delicious and creative panamanian inspired food. They also have several activities, a tiny little beach when tide is low and a cool bar and floating dock that is surely the life of the party when the health restrictions are lifted. We kayaked, had sunset tour alongside the dolphins and also went on a island tour to see the whales. The staff was wonderful, even though they were only a few. Shout out to Juan and his sister Melissa. Even of you don’t stay here and you should try to eat at their restaurant. The only negative is that they are seated on a cliff with long ladders and that isn’t great for everyone.

It's rare to find a place that is actually better, in every way, than you expected from the website or pictures. The resort is fresh, clean, magical. The gardens are finely manicured. The vistas from every corner is breathtaking. The rooms are clean and large. The food is simply perfection. Juan & Melissa is an asset to this establishment. Well done guys, we will be back...for a much, much longer stay.

I wish I could give this place 50 stars! Melissa and Juan and the staff at Seagull Cove are exemplary. We were welcomed warmly, shown to our room and everything we asked for or needed was taken care of. The rooms are incredibly comfortable with gorgeous views, excellent furnishings and decor and thoughtful touches. In fact, everywhere you look, the views are incredible and it’s obvious that great care and consideration was put into the guest experience here. We LOVED seeing the wildlife too. Hummingbirds, parakeets and howler monkeys can be seen pretty much daily. The food was some of the best we had the pleasure of enjoying on our three week trip…and we moved around a lot and tried MANY different restaurants. This was one of the only places that absolutely blew us away with both taste and presentation. We aren’t even big pasta fans, and their homemade pasta was ridiculously good. Kayaks are available and you should definitely take them out for a paddle! You should also book a boat tour of the islands. That was one of the most incredible things we did while wandering around Panama. We had an entire island to ourselves to enjoy for the day and the hotel packed a delicious lunch for us to take with us. We will DEFINITELY be returning to Seagull Cove and just can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience there. Go ahead and book. You won’t be sorry.

I cannot thank the team of Jim, Melissa, Juan, and Joanna enough for their hospitality in making our stay so memorable. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the service is first class, and activities offered are spectacular. The sunset cruise, kayaking, and island hopping adventure to Las Islas Secas were unforgettable. I cannot recommend Seagull Cove Resort highly enough.

Melissa and Juan made the visit so perfect. The quiet accommodations were very quaint and we had everything we needed. The restaurant was fabulous and the breakfast and dinners were amazing. We saw and heard howler monkeys by the pool. Truly a pice of heaven
