I would like to express how great our stay at the hotel Palmeral Dorima was, when we arrive at night Macho was waiting for us to show us the rooms, the rooms are very spacious, king size bed plus a single bed, high ceilings, a mini fridge and enough room for your baggage.
Next morning Doris was up waiting for us to offer a healthy and tasteful breakfast, the children enjoy the pool, the sun and the table games.
Doris and Manfred are so nice; this lovely couple will make you feel at home, you can tell they have put so much love and care in their lodge and they take care of the little details that will make your stay a pleasant experience. Hospitality was wonderful!!
Doris is a great chef, good food, always healthy and with her personal touch and Manfred is very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed so much talking with him.
The hotel is located closed to the Costa Rica – Panama border so is a great place to stay if you are traveling to Panama or if you want to go shopping at the free duty locals.
The hotel offers a fresh pool with a wonderful view of the primary and secondary forest , natural trails to visit the Palma plantation, great for bird watching, Jacuzzi, nice bungalows, good for nature lovers, families, couples and people who appreciate the finest customer service.
I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel for anyone planning on visiting the south Pacific and will certainly visit again next time we are in that part of the country.
