I found this charming place by accident last November and when I saw it I didn't want to leave. Craig and April are wonderful hosts and during my stay April's parents were there and I felt like I was part of the family. Breakfast every morning was delicious and varied every day. Craig and April can help arrange anything to make your stay in Pedasi very memorable and enjoyable.

Hello!
Thank you for your review of our property. You currently hold the record as our longest staying guest! It was great having you here and I know Rob and Dar really appreciated your time together as well. We all were pleasantly surprised to see you a couple months later rolling up the driveway again. Great times and now that you made the big move, more to come. Looking forward to us heading out and doing some more fishing.

This is one of Pedasi's best value for your buck, the breakfasts are scrumptious and plentiful, dinners are a nightly affair in itself on their elegant long table. The owners Craig & April (experienced divers) are so accommodating, FUN and can hook you up with excursions from fishing to interior forest tours. They have their own boat which is awesome. This hotel/hostel has a pool for those extra hot days and is hidden far enough from the main drag to be quiet most times. I am lucky to have had the pleasure of staying there. **** Highly recommend.

Hola!
April and I would like to extend our gratitude to you for your review of our humble abode :)
We are happy that you enjoyed your time here and in particular the dinners and beach day at Isla Iguana. It is not often that we get to enjoy time with our guests outside of Casa Lajagua so it was a fun and memorable day for us as well. Please come back and visit us again soon.

My buddy and I were getting a little tired of the never ending winter in Eastern Canada and I think our wives were just getting tired of us , so we took off for Panama ( first time for both ) and ended up in Pedasi and spent a week at this charming hotel with April and Craig as our hosts. I have to say I usually go to an all inclusive so this was a new experience for an old guy and must say would it again. The hotel is rather unique in construction but after looking at places in Central America it fits right in. I like clean airy hotels and was not disappointed , always a slight breeze coming through the open entrance way right to your room. The hotel sits on about an acre and a half of gorgeous property right as you enter the town of Pedasi. Breakfasts were great and included in the price with great coffee ,always needed to start my day, and a fresh smoothie every morning . The beach is not far away and locals more then helpful and friendly . We did not rent a car but took the bus everywhere , really an amazing system. If you start your journey in Panama city I strongly suggest you not rent a car until you are outside of the city . Taxis in Panama city are cheap ( just get a price before getting in, this way no surprises ) . Almost forgot to mention the weather was just what the doctor ordered . Great trip.

Craig and April are terrific hosts. A delicious breakfast, clean rooms, beautiful gardens, comfortable social area, and a very nice pool all add up to a great value and fond memories. Not only did they offer two excellent recommendations for dinner, but they even called for reservations. They also arranged a very nice trip to nearby Isla Iguana where the snorkeling was excellent. I can't say enough nice things about the hotel and our hosts !

My wife and another couple stayed at the Casa Lajagua for three nights starting 3-13-14. The hosts were most accommodating, the rooms were very nice. We enjoyed out time there very much. Excellent breakfasts.
