“Best fishing experience and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We spend some days here with family and our kids.
It is a nice place with nice pool for the kids.
Food was great too.
The cabins are big and all with a terrace facing the beach. There is a lot of birds around and we saw some iguanas.

Fishing was the best, we had to go far out finding the marlin.
Their boats are professional and I think they have the best boats for that in the whole region.
They make their own boats and that makes it a diferent fishing experience .
And yes we did catch and release the 2 giant black marlins.

We spent 2 nights in the Hooked on Panama Lodge but definitely we will stay longer next time.
My husband and brother in law went fishing and catched 2 huge Marlins! What a fantastic experience!
The service is really good. The owner brings a lunch bag and drinks early in the morning when they left for fishing.
We spend the day in the swimming pool in the lovely garden.
Dinner was really good!
We come back for sure!

Love this place. Wonderful owners, captain and the whole staff. Everyone here is so amazing! Our captain, Victor and mate took us out for a wonderful day of fishing. Dan, Lynette, Alexia, Rex and Connie were so gracious. We will be back. Lastly, fell in love with their dog, Te. Wanted to take her home with us! lol, Chad & Nancy from Florida

I took my 3 sons to the Lodge for 4 days of fishing. I had high expectations and those were exceeded. The end result was all three boys caught their first Marlin on the same day. The boys totaled out with 8 Marlin both Blacks and Blues released, 2 Sails released, and I caught a 62.5 inch Rooster fish. The dinning and staff are outstanding. Safe. Highly recommended.

4 friends got more than we bargained for in the middle of no where. There are many undeveloped areas in Panama but the border area near Punta Burica is truly the end of the road. On a previous visit to the area we had taken a very quick 5 minute look at this property hoping to find a good fishing base. We decided to chance it based partly on other trip advisor reviews and were delighted to experience the genuine hospitality and welcome provided by on site owners Dan, C.C. And Rex. Whatever we needed was provided, plus that intangible warmth that comes from involved owners. Boat Captain Oliver and Mate Carlito gave us top notch marine service and the kitchen ladies kept us fat and full. The place can get a bit wacky when the Panamanian families roll in but that could be the ultimate seal of approval , as well as adding a layer of local experience . If you're looking for something fancy this might not be your bag, but for location and service, it's a sure catch.

The lodge is clean and the owners are very friendly. It's run kind of like a bed and breakfast, and the grounds are very well kept. The villas all have televisions and the wifi service was very good even in the villas. Beware of sand fleas if you walk the beach though, lol. The food was 5 star at night and the service was excellent.
