We loved every aspect of this hotel. The whole set up blends very well with the beautiful natural surroundings of playa venao. We loved the rooms, the views, the food, the general ambiance and service was extremely good. The beach is clean, comfortable, wonderful for surfing and body boarding. Highly recommended

I had another expectation from this place, even though I try to do a good research before trying something out. This turned out to be really good. The hotel was more than I expected, and even though its not a 5 star hotel, its extremely good for a surf place. The installations are excellent, the pool with a beachfront view, the restaurante, even tough its a little pricey its really good, and if you like to relax, this is your place. The 5 hour trip from Panama City to Playa Venao its really worth it. The road its excellent up to Pedasi, and then after Pedasi, there is a bumbpy road during the last 30 minutes. But just relax and expect the unexpected.

thank u for everything! we had the sunrise suite and it was a perfect location for checking the waves, relax well on our balcony in the hammok or couch! just steps away is the hotel- reataurant and bar where every evening was chill musik. one minute away u are at bicicletta and coleos restaurant where for sure u will find the best food beside the hotel-restaurant. looong walks on an empty beach or chilled surf in a not overcrowded line-up. we would come back or recommend to our friends... cheeers

This hotel is right on Playa Venao and has one of the best setups for hanging out or basing your days activities. They have a very nice pool, good restaurant and friendly bar staff. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo that is part of the hotel and they are probably the nicest hotel rooms on Playa Venao (I have not stayed in any of the houses there). Our only complaint is that they continually thumped in EDM. I don't need club music with my breakfast. Or lunch. Even the staff complained that they were tired of hearing it nonstop. I was mystified at the daily DJ setup as I never saw anyone dancing. Because of the loud, mind numbing EDM, we spent most of our days down the beach at the much more chill Beach Break. When returning, we'll plan to stay at El Sitio, but will hang out at Beach Break.

Can't say enough about this gorgeous property, wonderful staff and caring owners. We are always treated like family and will continue to cherish each hour we can stay at this property. As the new cards say " Difficult roads offer lead to beautiful places!! This Paradise will not be your typical airport then short ride to resort. You will work a little to get here but the rewards are boundless Enjoy if you get the chance!!
