Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Boquete, Panama12 contributions1 helpful vote
This was our second stay at the resort. Great location and the pool was redone and is so much nicer this trip. The food is great and the staff is one of the best things about this resort! I went for a walk on the beach leaving my sandals near the sand. When i came back , there was only 1 sandal. I told the bartenders and they seemed to think it was probably one of the local dogs that took it. One of the bartenders Julio left to go down the beach to look for it after I couldn’t find it on my walk. About 30 minutes later he returned with the missing sandal that he found a long ways down the beach with 3 dogs playing with it. Obviously the staff here goes above and beyond to keep their patrons happy. We will definitely return!

A beautiful property with generous sized and clean rooms. Beautiful pool, unbelievable beach and great beach chairs in the shade. The staff throughout are awesome! Special shoutout to Astrid (thank you for the amazing breakfasts!), Jonathon (who accommodated our dietary needs (vegan) and put together some amazing dinners for us) and Lisa, who truly was a joy to chat with about the property as well as Las Lajas.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Las Lajas is our favorite beach in the world. All our 9 children learned to swim in the calm waters there (please use wisdom on the tides as there can be occasional rip tides). The gentle slope is perfect for a leisurely swim and mid and low tide with a glass like reflection for 20+ yards as the water hugs the sand. We have visited the beach and resort many times between 2012 and present (2021). The resort is the only one on the beach. Other local hostels and places to stay may be close to the beach, but are not on the beach. You can look out and see the islands from your seat in the restaurant and on the beach. Las Lajas Beach Resort is by far our most favorite beach resort in Panama. The hotel staff is kind, attentive and concerned for your comfort and welfare. When the highway was closed (August 16, 2021) and we could not reach our destination this was where we diverted. Despite getting there late at night as the staff was heading toward the parking lot, and having no reservation, they saw us, turned around and gave us a room at a very reasonable rate. Jonathan at the desk was concerned for us and asked if we had eaten because the restaurant was already closed and he was offering to go get us something. Speaking of the restaurant, the food is excellent and we really enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere. The picture included is the buttermilk lances with eggs and bacon breakfast. Years ago when our 9 children were small (preteens and under) they were happy to accommodate us and some of the staff even came and played with the children. Gama, the horse riding expert, is a phenomenal horseman (not just caballero, but also a true vacero) who trained our oldest daughter to be a very good horse rider and maintainer, teaching her to care for and love the animals she rides. The environment is clean, placid and refreshing. I would highly recommend Las Lajas Beach Resort without hesitation. We love, love, love this beach and resort. 👍👍👍👍👍

The road to our destination was closed by protesting native Indians. We barely made it into Las Lajas and almost had to sleep in our cars. We made it here just after they are scheduled to close but they saw us coming in and let us rent a room. The man we spoke to was very kind and made sure we had eaten something and had water to drink, many of the people stuck on the road had been there over a day with no access to food or water except for over priced street vendors taking advantage of the situation. We were beyond grateful to not have to sleep in our cars but this hotel was above and beyond a bed to sleep in. The service was very kind, the breakfast was delicious, the rooms had functioning AC and comfortable beds. The beach is right outside the hotel and there’s a comfortable grassy area to sit if you don’t like sand. If we ever come to Las Lajas again, this will be we’re we stay.

We really regret you did not enjoy your stay as much as the other reviewers were, and we apologize for the inconveniences you have experienced. For future customers: our kitchen is open for dinner orders till 9pm and the bar-restaurant is open till 10 pm. At night, when there is not much work anymore in the reception, the receptionist helps as well in the restaurant. However he does answer phone calls and is available for our hotel guests. Our restaurant is a few steps away from the reception. When you stay 2 nights and do not want our cleaning service on your second day, it is impossible for us to know if you need anything and in that case you have to ask for it in the reception. When you do like to get your room cleaned the second day, we change towels and check if more features, like soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. are needed. We always provide our rooms with 4 bath towels and 2 swimming pool towels, anyhow you can ask for more. The reception is open from 6.30 am to 10 pm and most of the time you can find the receptionist there. You can also ask another member of the staff to help you. We only have 2 suites and as soon as people check out, they have to get cleaned before other guests will check in. If guests arrive on time, we cannot show anything. It is, unfortunately, also possible that the receptionist forgot your request …. In general our staff is more than willing to help and we regret you had another impression. We always appreciate feedback right away, because now it is difficult to know what happened. Anyhow we informed all our staff about your complaints.

I am just beginning my third of a four day stay at the resort. I was in need of some serious relaxtion and fortuitously picked the perfect place. The beach is spectacular and the property is well maintained. All staff have been very friendly and accommodating. The menu selections are varied and the food is well prepared. Specials are offered for lunch and dinner. Thank you Las Lajas Beach Resort!!

Hi MissAnne, thank you very much for your kind words. YES, relaxation is very easy here under the palapas and palm trees or by the beach front pool, restaurant and bar. We work hard year round to maintain the quality and appearance of our buildings and grounds. Thank you also for your recognition of our staff's willingness to help. We update our menu every few months and work to keep our specials varied as well. Thanks again, The Las Lajas Beach Resort.

Only 1.5 hour drive from Boquete... was a great break from hiking in Boquete. We paid to use the resort facilities/beach for the day. The beach front is lovely, the resort facilities are sufficient for a nice day at the beach....With food and drink readily available at the restaurant.
