The rooms are bungalows with a multi-level porch on the ocean and very private. The shower is glass blocks with stained glass decor. The restaurant is over the top (had lobster last night), very gourmet. Hard to leave here, but WILL be back.

I was impressed by the rave reviews and called to see whether they would be willing to work out an all-inclusive deal for my family. Dave, the owner of the resort, picked up the phone. He was warm and engaging and told me that they would... More

This is the place to go if you want to get away from it all but still be taken care of in style and luxury. Food was great, staff was great and our excursion to nearby island beaches was great. This is a wonderful location for solitude.

Idyllic surroundings. Great place to chill out and relax. Very comfortable accommodation and great choice of food. The staff headed by Brian couldn't do enough for us. Trips to the outer islands and local village all added to a wonderful experience.

I stayed with my mom for 4 nights, and it was the perfect spot to relax a disconnect. The rooms were impecable, very well equipped. The food was delicious at all times, and the boat trip is a must. The staff was incredibly friendly. All in all a little piece of heaven on earth.

The staff and owner David are all 1st class. We had eight in our group and occupied four bungalows. We fished three days and always looked forward to returning to the island for a cool swim in the pool, drinks and an awesome dinner. We all plan on a return trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. At a 15-minute boat-ride from Boca Chica, bordering on the unspoiled, for-you-to-discover Panama's Marine Park "Archipielago de Chiriqui", Cala Mia is the perfect jumping-off point to world renowned sport fishing grounds: Coiba's Hannibal Bank or Islas Las Secas; Islas Los Ladrones for scuba diving and for surfing: Moro Negrito and Isla Afuera! Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side. Furniture, materials and woodwork are home designed and handcrafted by local artisans blending aesthetics, art, quality and functionality into a new standard!. ... more   less
