Hacienda del Mar is an experience not to be missed! The short flight from Panama City was easy even for sometime like me who is nervous on small planes. We were picked up from the airport by the owner of the airline, island and hotel - George Novey. George was charming and informative. We were greeted at the front desk by his daughter Priscilla, who we got to know more over the course of our stay and we absolutely adored. As Priscilla gave us a tour, Giuseppe and Achew were waiting for us with drinks and a massive food platter. It was incredible! My parents stayed in cabin 11 and we stayed in cabin 12. These are definitely the most desirable rooms. The views were stunning. They are "island rustic" but anything else wouldn't work in a place like this. We were only there for one night, but we enjoyed the pool, the beach, an ATV tour of the island and an unbelievably fresh seafood dinner. While enjoying the continental breakfast the next morning, a toucan flew up and ate out of hands! Hacienda del Mar is so unique and wonderful. And I can't say enough how much the Novey family and entire staff made the trip unforgettable. We will definitely be back!
