This was our third stay at this little piece of paradise. Every time we were here we thought it was perfect. But each visit has been even better than the last. The food, the people, the attention to detail! There are tours you can take, bikes you can borrow, you can surf and paddle and boogie-board to your heart's content....

Such a welcoming arrival to the hotel. We were met immediately with smiles from the staff and a “hello” from Ailyn, the manager. Ailyn is a very much hands on manager who you will see all over the hotel and grounds. Her positive management style is obvious in the well trained and motivated staff. The property is spotless. The restaurant...

We visited during what was supposed to be the rainy season. We lucked out with beautiful weather, so we were told. This hotel is beautiful! The staff is friendly and the food is delicious! I seriously can't wait to go back!

The hotel is located directly on the beach. Our room was very clean. Ilene, who runs the hotel made our stay exceptional. When checking in she asked what we were interested in doing: turtle release, horseback riding, off roading. She made it all happen at very reasonable costs. We ate most of our meals at the hotel and the food...

Yet another year spent in cambutal with great people at this hotel. The staff especially Eileen and Frances go out of their way to make it special and The management (Albero and Haley) are keen to ensure that the hotel provides you with what you need; good food, surf boards, boogie boards, kayaks, and trips out. Thank you to everyone

The restaurant at Hotel Playa Cambutal ended up being our daily lunch spot in Cambutal. The restaurant has a nice view of the pacific ocean and the surfers at playa Cambutal. The fish tacos were very tasty and the staff was nice and attentive.

I am originally from Panama, and my mom is from this area of the country (Azuero). I had heard many nice things of this hotel and wanted to treat my mom, cousin and his wife to a few days away, and of course myself. The rooms were reasonably priced and the hotel didn't disappoint. The staff made it even better...

This was my third visit to Cambutal and this lovely hotel. I loved it before, and have to say it has gotten even better in the last couple years. It has everything a traveler could want: a relaxing, welcoming tropical atmosphere, comfortable rooms (all have ocean views/ac/fans/everything!), friendly and professional staff and delicious food and drinks. The food has improved...

This charming little hotel by the beach was a highlight of my travels in Panama. The rooms are well appointed and air conditioned. The staff is as accommodating as one could hope to find in a small private hotel and the meals were delicious. They have a small quiver of boards that would be sufficient for a beginner to intermediate...
