Nothing that I'll write here will be close to what this place is! It feels too complete to be a reality. Everything comes together perfectly and you find yourself asking many times if this is a virtual reality. The resort was designed by a real sea lover, the flow, the deck, the pool and the open restaurant, get all connected...

Everything is just perfect. The cabanas, the pool, the setting, the restaurant, the waves! A truly relaxing atmosphere. Very friendly staff. My only suggestion would be to clean the beach, since it's rainy season there was a lot of "natural garbage", basically logs and branches that the rivers flow in.

Five relatives and I were unlucky enough to stay from December 23rd to the 27th at Playa Venao Hotel Resort in the Pedasi area of Panama. We rented 4 villas, the most expensive accommodations in the resort. We were all family, all adults. We chose this hotel because we were told it was the best in the area. A friend...

I'm not a surfer but the place is beautiful. I enjoyed watching the surfers surfing. The hotel is clean and nice. Rooms were very clean and a very good size for a party of four. Service was nice as well. I wouldn't mind to go back.

We cancelled the booking well in advance of our stay and well within the free refund time, but the hotel had taken the money from our account 2 months before we were even due to...

This is a place to relax, not to be entertained. We've been there for an anniversary and one night only, took a junior suite and enjoyed the place. It is one of the best surf beaches in Panama, so watching the waves and the surfers is what you can do from the pool deck, from the huge infinity pool or...

We went to this resort base on the reviews. In the positive, rooms were clean, bed comfortable. Pool area was clean. Beach was nice if you like surfing, if you are not into surfing then is not the beach for you. Negative, breakfast was included with the room, eggs very dry, pancakes cold, and toast that were old, you also...

Our room was absolutely spacious. We were surprised there was no coffee service in the room nor a mini bar. The only other negative was the drapes were difficult to draw and you needed to draw them for privacy. Also, all evening long we heard banging from the adjoining room. The servers at breakfast were absolutely incredible!
