“Second time”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Second super bowl at Hotel Playa Cambutal (2012 & 2014) Great accomodations and accomodating staff. Pool adjacent to beach - hard to beat. Just ask- they do their best to provide for your pleasure. Rooms clean and comfortable, enjoyed pizza night, plenty of ice cold beer. Great location, southern most point of Panama.

Room Tip: All rooms good - your choice first or second flood.

This hotel is right on the beach, extremely clean and the staff are wonderful.
The manager is a dream - not only knowledgeable, helpful and does what he says.
The rooms are large, very clean and the shower is great.
Not only air conditioning that works, also a lovely ceiling fan.
The food is good with great service.
I was caught in a rogue wave and my camera and binoculars soaked.
No questions asked, here is rice, dry them out.
My schipperkes, Tucker enjoyed the staff and the staff were great with him.
Thank you to you all.
I look forward to another visit to a beautiful area of Panama

Room Tip: All rooms are great. I believe they all have an ocean view.

Best choice for that area. Hard- working staff (Kennedy), et al. Nice complimentary breakfast. Good restaurant/bar food. Rooms are spacious, hotel steps from beach where there are good waves. Place is clean, well-kept. Down the road to Fonda Nubias where you can eat seaside at the 'primer lugar' at Cambutal. Can't wait for the next stay.

Recently our family traveled to Cambutal for my son's wedding. We loved our stay at the Hotel Playa Cambutal. The rooms were lovely; each one had an ocean view. The hotel is made even more beautiful by the unusual and beautiful wood work. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a wonderful one. They even planned and cooked a special rehearsal dinner under the pergola at the pool. Albeiro, the owner/manager, even cooked the meal for us. It was a great way to host and meet our son's new in laws. Haley and Albeiro made us feel right at home. I can't say enough positive things about our stay. We will return.

Nice, clean hotel with friendly staff and good food. Most expensive in area, but you get what you pay for. Perfect for families or surfers with a little extra $ in their pocket. Great beach break directly in front of hotel. The swell was massive when we were there. The points were too big (at least for non-professionals). This break is somewhat sheltered from the swell due to the outer reefs. It is biggest at high tide when some of the swell energy is preserved over the reef and drops considerably at lower tides. In any case, we were happy to have it as an option and even happier that you could access it right out in front of hotel. Definitely coming back and would recommend to others. PS: Enjoyed watching Gonzalo (one of best surfers on Panama) cranking airs almost all week.

We always stay at this hotel in Cambutal and are always treated like family!!!
It was my birthday and during the rainy season all hotels are slow,but we were treated like we were special...
We brought our little dog and luckily he was well behaved..
Kennedy is a one man show and is there morning 'til night with service and a smile..
What a great place to go and relax at the most beautiful beach in Panama...

Gorgeous out of the way location. Nice staff, clean rooms, and wonderful pool right on the ocean! The staff was very accommodating, in fact, it was my birthday and they surprised me with a cake! Going above and beyond quest service (and some English is spoken)

Room Tip: All about the same I think, although quieter on the upper floor I would imagine!
