“Nice B&B in Pedasi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

If we were to recommend someone to visit a typical Panamanian town, this would be the one -Pedasi. It has lots of small hostels, comfortable and well kept. This one is very cute, the manager Jose is quite attentive and helpful and the room, although small, is comfortable. The only problem is the air conditioning is not as cool as we like it, (it is hot in Pedasi this time of year) but they do have a fan in the room. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Very enjoyable.

So sorry to hear the A/C wasn't up to par. Unless the weather is simply 95 degrees+, Hades-like hot in Pedasi (which does happen now and then), the units are able to cool the rooms down to very, very chilly temperatures. I'll have the staff look at the A/C unit where you stayed asap. Thanks for the review!

Pedasi on the Azuero Peninsula was our last stop on our first tour of Panama and we were not disappointed. This charming diamond in the rough is clean, tidy and oozing with charm! Keep an eye on this area as it is set to boom big time. In addition to the adorable village, the country is busily constructing brand new roads (2 lanes each direction) and it is a breeze to get there from Panama City. On a recommendation, we booked at Casita Margarita in Pedasi. Would like to have spent all nights there, but they were full. Finally got to spend two days there and were not disappointed with this cozy boutique hotel. Rooms were sweet with brand new bathrooms - great water pressure and spotless. There is free wireless, lots of places to relax with a book and a cerveza too. Breaksfast, which is included, was excellent with lots of great coffee and friendly staff. Dinner is served on weekends and I have heard good reviews although they were, unfortunately, not serving the night we were there. Jose Enriquez, the hotel manager, speaks excellent English in addition to this native Spanish and went out of his way to tell us about the area, suggest activities, etc. We will be back!

Room Tip: We always choose the top floor, not folks walking in the room above you. Sitting area on the second...

Casita Margarita was a great find in the quaint town of Pedasi. We travelled in Panama with our 2 adult children. Jack and Sue Halloran were very helpful as was Jose who organised fishing trips and anything else we needed including cooking the catch! We had the rooms upstairs which were very clean and comfortable and a relaxing sitting area complete with veranda and hammocks. Breakfast was good and pack lunches on request plentiful. Wi-Fi was available. A wonderful part of our holiday.

We loved this little Bed & Breakfast. We traveled in Panama with our two kids (3 and 5 years) for three weeks and this was one of the best places we found. Jack and Sue were over the top nice and accommodating. They loved kids (as they have a family of their own) and were more than willing to rearrange a room to fit all four of us. The Wi-fi and air conditioning were a great bonus. Breakfast came with the room and they'd even pack you a little lunch for the day for a minimal fee. Staff was friendly and eager to take care of you. Wonderful place!

We initially booked for 4 nights and ended up extending for 4 additional nights. The owners Jack and Sue, go all out being hospitable along with the entire staff. We felt like being at home there and enjoyed the afternoon chats with Jack and Sue. Met interesting people visiting there and made new friends.

Room Tip: Book early due to the high demand of this B & B.

We visited Pedasi for a couple of days and had an enjoyable stay at the Casita Margarita. The owners Bob ans Sue were very hospitable, as was Juan, the manager. Room #1 on main for. Was very clean and nicely kept. Inn is on main street in town and no pool, etc. Was an authentic B&B experience. Met interesting guests & got invited to share some freshtuna shashimi by a guest who caught a yellow fin in the AM. Would recommend for those seeking a great B&B experience.

Room Tip: No fitness ctr or pool.

Excellent service and the hospitallity was fantastic. Great food and drink and Jack and Sue make you feel right at home. Met some new friends there, and we plan on going back soon. Lots of great places to eat close by. Also, the night life at "Smiley's" is only a short walk.
