Spent the day and had a great lunch. The hotel is spacious and well maintained, even though this is the low season. The staff is courteous and always attentive without being intrusive. The ladies really appreciated the ultra maintained "Banos."
Well run peaceful hotel right on the beach. Only 12 rooms I believe. Rooms are clean with good air-con and plenty of hot water. Fun place for kids to play and explore. Looking for shells, turtle watching at night, board games, horse riding, swimming etc. Service is kind and food is good - well presented. Surf was too strong for kids when we were there. Took about 6.5 hrs drive from Panama City. Def check out the thin-crust pizza and pasta place next door - 3 minute walk down the beach. A really nice and relaxed place to stay for a few days.
Hotel Playa Cambutal is the perfect get away. Eileen, the hotel manager is so gracious. Let her know what you need and she will help you. The food is excellent and the beach is amazing. The rooms are small but clean and quaint. Handmade soap in the bathroom and large beach towels provided for the pool or beach. Happy hour food and drink specials and surf boards and body boards are free to use all day.
Good Happy Hour on the beach, lots of sand flies, and the service was just so-so. I would likely not bother coming back, but it wasn’t necessarily a bad experience. The views at sunset were good and the drinks were strong, just not amazing.
We met some friends at the hotel. They had stayed here before and recommended it. It is a very nice place situated on a beautiful beach. We live on the beach in a different part of Panama. The facilities were very nice and the rooms were quite comfortable. They have a nice swimming pool that is reasonably maintained. The food is quite good. We found the staff to be very pleasant and accommodating. We plan to return in the near future. On the downside: 1.) They have SKY satellite TV which is a very good service, but the hotel has disabled the “English where available” function unlike the other hotels that use SKY; 2.) No way to get coffee before 8:00 am. (I purchased a small coffeemaker for future travel) 3.) They did not open the pool bar (no happy hour) while we were there. Nonetheless I recommend the hotel, it is wonderful for a getaway.…
