This place is really unique, my mom and I really enjoy our time there, very kind and polite attention, for me it was paradise on Earth. You can loose yourself in a place where nature and modern life mix in a very smooth way.

The staff and owner David are all 1st class. We had eight in our group and occupied four bungalows. We fished three days and always looked forward to returning to the island for a cool swim in the pool, drinks and an awesome dinner. We all plan on a return trip.

This is one of the worst experiences I ever had. I travel much for my work, so I see many places worldwide. I was really surprised about the way things were managed at this place. The manager is the girlfriend of the owner and she has no hospitality skills at all. She was hanging behind the bar, on her phone...

We recently visited Cala Mia at the spur of the moment. The island resort is low key and welcoming. You can relax by the pool or wander down to the secluded beach and lounge in one of the hammocks by the sea. There is also kayaking and a large list of other activities they will arrange if you so desire....

This hotel is awesome! Very peaceful and perfect place to really get away from it all. We enjoyed getting up to the sound of the ocean right out front of our casita and we loved the fact that we arrived via boat. The food was pricey but fantastic.

Cala Mia is perfect for those seeking a low-key and uncrowded resort experience. With only 7 or 8 bungalow suites and a somewhat remote location, you won't have to share this special place with mobs of noisy tourists. There is Wi-Fi but rooms have no TV to distract you from the natural surroundings. If you want to be active, you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. At a 15-minute boat-ride from Boca Chica, bordering on the unspoiled, for-you-to-discover Panama's Marine Park "Archipielago de Chiriqui", Cala Mia is the perfect jumping-off point to world renowned sport fishing grounds: Coiba's Hannibal Bank or Islas Las Secas; Islas Los Ladrones for scuba diving and for surfing: Moro Negrito and Isla Afuera! Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side. Furniture, materials and woodwork are home designed and handcrafted by local artisans blending aesthetics, art, quality and functionality into a new standard!. ... more   less
