Nice place. I liked the fact it was quiet, it had a private beach and it was pet-friendly. The food took a little too long to cook one day, electricity went out for a day and the cleaners took too long to clean the room, but it's all about location, location, location.....

The rooms are amazing, you feel just like you where in a beautiful beach sanctuary and with all the necessary. You can here the ocean wave at night. The service was outstanding but the best part of it was the food. They have an amazing chef with many different sea food options. Is one of the best places for a... More

The location on a cliff edge is beautiful, but the journey down a dirt path to get to the hotel along with poorly maintained rooms did not counterbalance the location. We had a family "suite" which was just 2 rooms with beds and no other furniture. One of the bathroom toilets did not work despite maintenance coming twice, no hot... More

Excellent! Although the rainny weather, everything was just fine. Great food, cozy rooms, amazing view, everything clean and comfortable. Really recommend this place. The road way to enter the hotel is not finished, so be careful during rainny days.

Very nice and clean rooms, two pools and great views of the ocean. The main building looks like a Tuscan villa. The restaurant is OK. Breakfast was delicious. Service could be improved tho. Also the fact that they advertise a gym on there website which is non existant, was a bit of a disapointment. Also you should have a good... More

After a few missteps out of Pedasi, and a few curse words for the lack of direction/signage, we finally found the dirt road leading up the hill to Villa Romana. As reported, the dirt road left much to be desired, but once we located Villa Romana, it was worth the drive. It's a beautiful property and without a doubt has... More

If you like a bit of adventure, this is the place to go. Villa Romana is a beautiful place but it is not if you love the beach; way too far to walk down to a rocky setting with high waves In Pedasi' you will find ''Dona Maria Hostal'' with a family setting you will be comfortable with it.

We were traveling around Panama and picked this the day before we arrived in Pedasi. Once we made our way through the winding road to the hotel, it was so worth the drive! We stayed in a villa overlooking the ocean, which offered a hammock on the porch for relaxing while listening to the waves roll in. The room was... More

The Hotel Villa Romana is a great place to stay in Pedasi, perhaps the best. Jessica, the manager, is a great host. She is friendly and helpful and always willing to answer your questions and schedule your activities. She scheduled us on a day trip to Isla Iguana and we had a great time. The hotel grounds are well maintained... More

Very nice place to unwind and relax. Good food and friendly staff. Nice beach 200 yards away. Internet everywhere. What else do you need? Ocean front suite is the best! Restaurant is also with ocean view. All food supplied by local farmers. We go back there again in heart beat!
