worst hotel i have ever been in
What a absolute dump. Showed up booked and paid extra for upgraded from when we got there they only had regular rooms. After arguing they said they will comp the difference. Fine. got into the room and the AC barley worked. Ok it was 97 outside. left and came back to room around 430pm. the room was still hot and after pulling back the sheets they were dirty and smelled like sweat. we vented out the sheets as the manager was not on duty. During our brisk walk we noticed they have about 100 rooms but only 2 or 3 others were occupied. talked to another vacationer who stated they have been here all day and no one else was here but them and us. at this point im thinking whats up???? Got back to the room and turned on the shower and bugs cam out of the drain. my wife almost died as she came screaming. went to front desk they said they were all booked up and had no other rooms. I threatened to call my credit card company and have them issue a reversal on the account and they said ok we have another room. this was the upgraded room we paid for. Changed rooms at 6pm in the dark getting eaten by bugs to only find out that one of the maintenance guys who works there lives there in the room and the room had not been cleaned. Bottom line if you want to stay near the beach stay here but if you want to not get hep c or some other disease then go elsewhere. side note the manager of hotel who speaks no English who said he was going to refund the difference never did.

Monkeys!!
Beautiful property! Woke up to see a monkey in a tree from our patio. The beach is a short walk downhill. Took a boat tour to snorkel. Staff very helpful! Would stay again!

Nice accommodations and friendly staff
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We spent quite a bit a time on the beach and hiking around the property. Playa Panama is very nice. The staff was very accommodating. The room was very spacious with a full size refrigerator and microwave. The bed could use a sifter mattress though. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.

Too High Price
There were no reviews on here so that was a signal flare to begin with. Getting here was easy using WAZE but I had a condo in the area for 5 years and NEVER knew this place was here! Very hidden which is a good and bad thing. The hotel is an older Costa Rica Hotel so that said, the price is WAY TOO HIGH! Roomer has it they are going to build a new hotel, but time will tell about that (they need to!). The wifi was spotty in the room, the A/C worked great (albeit the power went off for an hour at 1 am), but the water pressure in the shower was REALLY BAD! The coffee maker and the frig were a nice touch. Bed was average for a hotel bed. Waking up the the howler monkeys was very cool! Would I stay here again, yes but only if the room was $70 or less.
