“Very Very Basic”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2010

We arrived at the lodge on dec 31th 2009; the Kuna indians had a party for 4 days.
The party was directly under our window and the smoke of their fires filled our room.
It was not possible to sleep under those circumstances.
The beds and bedroom were clean, but very basic.
We left after an hour...
Under normal circumstances this might be OK, but be aware that this is a backpacker hotel without any luxury.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2007

I thought this was a great hotel, on the whole. I had a room with a private bath and granted, it was basic, but it was all I expected and much more. I was picked up by boat in El Proviner at the airport by Orlando, who works for the hotel and he was an outstanding guide. Food was more than adequate with lots of seafood. You should bring snacks as it may not always be to your liking. And I brought a battery lantern to read by in the evening as electrity is supplied by solar power but was adequate otherwise. I stayed two days and plan to return next year.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, location

San Blas is a nice place to go to Panamá, but these hotel is not nice, first:
1. Not Clean
2. The food was awful you pay for the 3 meals because in the price its included.
3. In the hotel you see rats A BIG ONES
4. IF you stay in your room you listen all the things that happens in the next door.
5. When you complaint to the owner he dont say any apologies for the inconvenient. he only say what else?

The only think that was nice is the guide tour, he explains all the history and the culture of the place.

I recommended if you wanna go to San Blas (Because is a Wondefull place to go) pay a little extra in another hotel.

  • Disliked — you cant hear your next room
  • Tips/Secrets — pay more for a better hotel
