This was my second time to Panama and Cambutal (where we have bought a small beachfront lot and plan to build a vacation home in the near future!). The first time, about five years ago, I believe this place was still under construction. This time we got to stay here and LOVED IT! The place is beautiful, especially the large breezeway that is so inviting and spacious. We woke up to the sound of the birds and surf out front. Our room was impeccably clean, the beds comfortable and the architectural details (all the custom woodwork, furniture, tile, and stone) gave it a warm character. When we weren't dipping in the warm ocean water, we hung out by the pool. The staff was amazing--super helpful and always friendly. The owners and their adorable little baby gave the place a feeling of a home. We even got to watch the Super Bowl at their outdoor bar--which was packed with friendly locals. What an amazing little community of wonderful people has collected at this tiny little fishing village in the midst of amazing remote rain forest, jungle and ocean! Whether you want a romantic escape, a surfing or fishing getaway or an adventure with your family, this is a great place to stay!! There are horses on the beach, monkeys in the trees and sand dollars in the surf! For me, Hotel Cambutal offered the perfect balance of a casual, relaxed, close-to-nature experience with all the creature comforts.
