We stayed here as part of a super Caravan tour of Panama. (Can't say enough good things about Caravan)The design of the lobby makes quite an impression with very high ceilings, metal sculptural railings that look like vines and leaves, huge banners representing wildlife...the rooms are not fancy but are very clean and well arranged. All have balconies with hammocks and face an area with the pool, vegetation, and a view of the river. Food was tasty and some was prepared to order. I can't eat gluten or eggs, and I found plenty to choose from. The only meal that was a challenge for me was breakfast, but, with plenty of fruit, yoghurt, side meat, and potatoes, I was fine. The dessert offerings looked like a bakery...and there was an egg free
dessert for me.
No bugs biting, at least at that time of year, which was a relief.
The hotel has a free evening drive in an open vehicle which allowed us to see capybaras, caimans, birds, a sloth, etc. with a narration in Spanish and English.
