I attended a Travel and Adventure Show a few months back. We stopped at the Panama booth and met Emily. She spoke highly of the resort, and explained to us how they were going to have a great soft opening sale for people traveling before the end of April. Thank God my vacation was schedule for April! I booked the trip finally after a few emails back and forth with Emily. This secluded and private island is the perfect place to get away from it all. I wanted a vacation that provided peace, quiet and beautiful natural surroundings. Well, I got it all at Isla Palenque! The staff was attentive and catered to our every needs. Chef Oliver prepared the most delicious freshest meals I have ever tasted. He even came out a few times to speak with us during dinner. Carlos our bartender was so handsome, and made us the most amazing drinks! The tour staff (all of them) were so much fun to hang out with during our tours. They made our trip soooo memorable! We miss them all very much. Our ocean room suite was just amazing, and what a view! I loved showering in their private outdoor shower. How cool is that! Listening to the ocean waves and howling monkeys each day was just an incredible experience. It made me forget about all the stress in my life. We were there for 8 days! I want to thank everyone personally who took part in making our vacation the best experience ever! I have never met such a great group of people--so down to earth. They all love their job, and it truly shows! If you want to get away from it all--this is the place to go. Thank you so much for making this vacation the best experience ever! Many blessings to you all always.
