“More a motel than a hotel !”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Carisabel is situated in the small town of Aguadulce, province of Veraguas in Panama. About one hour`s drive from Santiago de Veraguas, the major city in this province.

Not much to do in this small town of Aguadulce, but if you are looking for some peacefulness, tranquility, it offers it. People are friendly, pleasant.

Carisabel itself from the outside looks impressive as it sits on a street corner , with a large covered terrace not used at the moment ; Carisabel does not offer a lobby for entrance but more a side door with a counter that looks more like a doctor`s waiting room. Not impressive. But, there is a live receptionist at all hours .

Next to that side entrance, there is a small casino that could fit into a North American living room, really small with one employee in attendance.

Why did I call it a motel ? A large iron gate on wheels , opened during the day, gives you access to your room door with space in front of the room for parking your car ; on both sides of this courtyard are lined up the various rooms.

Oddly, a small (living room size) swimming pool , mainly for children, sits next to an outside bar with barbecue stand . In the afternoon heat , it could offer some respite.

The room itself provides a double bed with linen that shows its wear; airconditioning works well , a TV with cable sits high on the wall opposite the bed, plenty of cupboards for your luggage and clothing, a hot water shower . Good working utilities but can be seen this building will need renovation in one to two years.

Best place and location in Aguadulce, it seems to be used by Panamanian middle classes with their families ( children).

A restaurant attached to the other street side gives a free wholesome breakfast ( eggs, toast, coffee or prk steak ).

For the price, it is a good value .

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the gate entrance.
