Hostal Dona Maria is the EXCEPTIONAL value in downtown Pedasi. You wind up with an incredibly comfortable room, clean bathrooms, great location, at a VERY reasonable price. Check out my video and see for yourself.

My husband and I speant our last 3 days of our 10 day vacation in Dona Maria, Pedasi. We were impressed with the cleanliness, warm water for showers, and choice of A/C or overhead fan with the screened in window open. We opted for breakfast to be included and it was great sitting out back in the mornings. We were also glad to have internet service. Since we are still learning Spanish, it helped that the owner speaks English.

  • Liked — could walk to everything in town, cleanliness

In the beautiful village of Pedazi, a great place to stay is Dona Maria, a one year-old little hotel with a great location (one of the first one you'll find by the main street), comfortable rooms with their own bathrooms and A/C, free wifi and TV, and nice terraces to enjoy a good book after a day wondering around...But the best is definitly the family who run the place who will welcome you and be really attentive to all your needs. It made my short trip to Pedazi a great moment of my visit to Panama ! The only thing is that it is true that it can get a bit noisy but the rest is worth it ! Good prices, good breakfast, great people, with just a few rooms they kept it "small and beautiful". Long life to Dona Maria Hotel !

The hostal has a nice garden and is on the main road through Pedasi, but it's right next to a parking lot where at night (some nights? only on holidays or weekends?) the locals with pick-ups and SUVS equipped with giant speakers compete about who can play reggaeton music the loudest & the longest! Drunken shouting and sing-alongs don't make for a restful sleep here.

Located in a cute country town. This is a very clean and enjoyable bed and breakfast. My 5 year old son loved it there. The reooms where clean and had its own bathroom. What a blessing. There was hot water and air conditioning. The people are so friendly and they even speak English here. It is a 5 minute drive to the beach and they have private and secured parking area. We went during Carnaval (5 days before Ash Wednesday) and it was the best cultural experience I've ever had

Hostal Dona Maria (www.hostaldonamaria.com) is a new hotel in the fast growing city of Pedasi in the Los Santos province of Panama. Construction just finished this year, so I was one the first to stay in here, a wonderful little bed and breakfast run by Dona Maria and her daughters.
Located right on main street, I was in the heart of the town for the big carnaval held once a year. I had a great time. My husband, who doesn't speak a word of Spanish, can't wait to go back. He was adopted into the culture immediately.
The staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean, beautiful and bright, breakfast is made to order, and the rate just can't be beat for the quality. I wouldn't have been more comfortable had I stayed in my grandmothers house. They make everyone feel like family.
