The restaurant at Hotel Playa Cambutal ended up being our daily lunch spot in Cambutal. The restaurant has a nice view of the pacific ocean and the surfers at playa Cambutal. The fish tacos were very tasty and the staff was nice and attentive.

I am originally from Panama, and my mom is from this area of the country (Azuero). I had heard many nice things of this hotel and wanted to treat my mom, cousin and his wife to a few days away, and of course myself. The rooms were reasonably priced and the hotel didn't disappoint. The staff made it even better...

This was my third visit to Cambutal and this lovely hotel. I loved it before, and have to say it has gotten even better in the last couple years. It has everything a traveler could want: a relaxing, welcoming tropical atmosphere, comfortable rooms (all have ocean views/ac/fans/everything!), friendly and professional staff and delicious food and drinks. The food has improved...

This charming little hotel by the beach was a highlight of my travels in Panama. The rooms are well appointed and air conditioned. The staff is as accommodating as one could hope to find in a small private hotel and the meals were delicious. They have a small quiver of boards that would be sufficient for a beginner to intermediate...

I am an avid traveler and connoisseur of many places in Panama, people, idiosyncrasies and general culture. I found that some of the most remote villages of the capital city has been the target of achieving good entrepreneurs and successful businesses which results in consumer services adventure. It was a welcoming experience, full of smiling people and dedicated. Facilities impact...

This is a very new and well maintained facility at the Pacific ocean of Panama. About 4 and an half hours driving from Panama City. If you look for a very nice place to spend a vacation, this is your place. Full of outdoor activities, specially surf, back horse riding and many others. Very friendly staff with clean rooms. Good...

The restaurant service and quality is terrible. The food was bad and cold. The breakfast which is included was not tasty. The pancakes were uncooked, there was no butter, not even the coffee was good. The room with a "view to the ocean" overseas a roof. Just stay here if you have no other place to stay in Cambutal.
