“just terrible!”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

I did not even get a confirmation after many call and email attempts...
Dont quite understand why they were soo sketchy on giving me a room confirmation.
Would not recommend anyone to even waste their time on contacting them...

We stumbled upon this resort and I fell in love with the grounds. There was is a variety of accommodations starting from $60-over $200 per night. We chose a thatched roof "loft home" with views of the pool for $125. Very rustic but this is the charm, nice comfy bed but you can forget your blow dryer. The staff was wonderful and charming, the grounds were so clean, and lovely. Right on the beach were decks and "sun rooms" The beach was pristine, and miles of lovely sand, swimming was good and the beach wasn't busy. The dinner was gourmet, and the service immpecable, I highly recommend it. Even if you aren't staying here and in the area, go for dinner. Breakfast was included and was equally great. The only thing I would say to bring is there is no lunch service nor is there food or drinks available between breakfast and dinner, so bring some munchies! We will go back.

Beautiful spot, super friendly service, delicious food & 3big, goofy dogs-the owner is a generous host and a top ranconteur.
Perfect place to relax & enjoy.
Pedasi is 15 mins drive & world renowned surf beach Venao is 30 hr away.

get ready to enjoy peace, miles of soft golden sand all to yourself, wonderful food, amazing hosts and the retreat vacation to truly beat them all...

This place will restore you, take you away from the stress of live and hand you back 'time' to enjoy the book, the music, the wine...

My only problem is a seriously bad case of holiday blues and a strong desire to hop back on the plane...

Frommer's had described the rooms as having hand carved furniture...it was just laquered driftwood. They gave away the room we had reserved and the room they gave us was a joke. The place is not being well maintained. A/C didn't work and the front windows don't open. They have a bad reputation in Panama as those French guys who charge 3 times what their rooms are worth. Dinner was good but overpriced as well. We only stayed the one night and wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

First of all, Posada Los Destiladeros is located near Pedasi, far from Panama City. If you are in Panama City, its a long drive, but worth it. We got there without reservations, but thats us, you should probably call because its a long drive and there are not many options in the area. We stayed at the cabana facing the beach (dont remember the name, i think "Virginia"), it was like a postcard (i will post pictures later). We had dinner one night, you need to let them know and they'll bring a chef, and you can tell it was cook by a chef, they charge you $20@person for a complete gourmet meal!!!! There is not much around, we took a boat to isla La Iguana, its only 20 minutes, white sand and turquoise waters but nothing else, they try to charge you at the island $4@ but there is not even a bathroom, and yes, there are a lot of iguanas. The boat trip cost $50 round, they can wait for you or they will pick you up, you can make arrangements at the hotel, or just drive to Playa Arenales and hire a boat yourself.
Back to Destiladeros, our only complains were, they did not have internet or it did not work and they should have a small fridge in each cabana to keep some water or something, for the rest, excellent!!

First of all we made reservations directly at the hotel for the next day, then when we got there asking for our rooms they said that they could not have the rooms available for us, but they gave us one of the 3 that we reserved so we could put or things, in the mean time we were hanging on the pool with my sisters and nephews. By the time that we were supposed to have the bedrooms they said that we have to pay first, because there was a couple that wanted the bedroom (if you have a reservation, you pay when you check out, not check in). Finally, they never gave us a room and when we were leaving the owner of the hotel never show up to explain us what happened. The guy who help us with our bags told us that it happens all the time, that the attention is very bad. I really dont recomend this hotel, you better go to the other hotel (V C).
