Rooms, too old, are really too damp with dirty bathrooms. Any towels or clothes can't be fully dry... even bed sheets smells musty. Too bad, because place, swimming pool and service are nice, even if good meals are a bit expensive. New "design" rooms without...More

I'm sorry to say our experience appears to be entirely different than most reviewers. For $130 a night, we expected a lot better. The entire property feels unloved and is in desperate need of maintenance. Mold in the ceilings, chipped paint, musty odor. The air...More

About
Description
We love the ocean as much as you do. So we have created the ideal place for you to enjoy the waves and everything the Panamanian Pacific coast has to offer you along Pedasí's beaches. Villa Marina Lodge is a More one-of-a-kind place. It is located in Playa Venao-an international surf paradise-and offers comfortable rooms and first-rate amenities to make your beach trip a memorable experience. Unlike a resort, a lodge is more relaxed, casual, cozy... The location and its amenities will make you feel as if you were staying at a big beach house, but with professional service personnel and the support of one of the most renowned hospitality companies in Panama and the region. Either if you are on a romantic getaway, a surf trip among friends, or a group excursion to experience the area's natural charms, at Villa Marina Lodge you will always have your home away from home... on the waterfront.
