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.

We got caught in a blockage in Panama during the Protests in July 2022 and had to spend the night in the car. The hosts of the lodge stayed in contact with us all the night and were ready to receive us as soon as we arrived early in the morning. That was the moment the magic started. Herbie and Erica spoiled us from the beginning until the very last day with kindness, excellent breakfast and their hospitality. The lodge is a small paradise with the most stunning views, best infinity pool and first class rooms with all one could wish for. It’s quiet, relaxed and the nature is on your doorstep with beautiful birds, monkeys and squerels. Herbie and Erica, thanks for having us and the best days of our holiday.

Herbie and Erika are awesome hosts. Very friendly and accommodating. Transportation was easy and the stay at the lodge was amazing. Very peaceful. Herbie And Erika sling up a great breakfast. The view from their place is amazing. Short walk to the town of boca chica. If your looking for a kick back spot with great hosts then stay here.

Had been stuck in protest traffic for 16 hours. Showed up 10am unexpected, hungry, dirty clothes and tired. Herbie and Erika took us in like family. Awesome place to stay, clean, beautiful view,l. Erika loaned me a swim suit so I could enjoy the pool overlooking the ocean . If this had been a vacation it couldn't have been any better. We will definitely go back and highly recommend this place .

Our room was immaculate and beautiful. The View off our balcony was magnificent! Treated to spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and many, many birds! A resident keel-billed toucan enjoyed roosting on the balcony 10 feet from us. Herbie and Erica served the best breakfast we have had in all of Panama.

HErbie and Erika were outstanding hosts. Although generic booking websites showed no vacancy a few days after Easter, a "same day" message sent via the hosts' website was promptly answered. The property is beautiful and comfortable, with a stunning view of the bay from the infinity pool (accessed through sliding doors from our room). Although the accommodations were flawless, our hosts were by far the "stars of the show." Wonderful breakfasts each morning. Professional assistance with excursion bookings. Insightful advice regarding the area and ex-pat life in Panama. We will definitely return to Boca Chica, and we can't imagine staying anywhere else (!)

A very nice property with a fantastic view of this areas Pacific coastline and islands. The infinity pool is a perfect spot from which to appreciate it. The drive for 1km off the highway is over a gravel road, and the final approach is up a steep concrete driveway but easily done in a normal saloon car. Parking is inside the property gates. The room was a good size with a large shower room and even a separate dressing room for clothes. Breakfast was very good. A selection of cereals, yogurt, lots of fruit and a cooked breakfast of sausage, bacon, tomato, eggs to choice with toast choice, tea or coffee and juice from a wide selection. A great start to the day. With wonderful helpful hosts it's an easy pick.

Relaxing place to get away and enjoy the Boca Chica bay and all it has to offer. This eco lodge is run by two wonderful owners Herbie and Erika. They make a fabulous breakfast each morning. AndI highly recommend relaxing by the infinity pool afternoons and early evenings. If you are a bird watcher or nature lover this hotel is for you.

Herbie an Erica are the most wonderful hosts. They do everything possible to make you feel welcome and enjoy their wonderful lodge. Extremely comfortable rooms, a breakfast to die for, a fantastic infinity pool overlooking the archipelago of Chiriqui Bay. The howler monkeys, birds and overall serenity is second to none. The tour to the islands and swimming beaches were over the top. The whole world has gone insane but our mantra is that there are lots of great places to visit and lots of good people to meet and share experiences with. Thank you for allowing us to experience this at the eco lodge. Highly recommend and will definitely be back for whale migration season. Herbie and Erica thank you again and hope to see you again soon

Herbie and Erika are the best hosts we have ever encountered in our many travels. They make you feel welcome, they take great care of you, make excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants, do a great job of preparing and feeding everyone breakfast and obviously enjoy what they do. By the time we left we felt like family. The views and the pool are spectacular. We will definitely be back!
