The hotel is BEAUTIFUL, well kept and excellent service. The views are something you will not forget. The food was amazing, and we never ran out of activities to do; from Surfing to ziplining, horse rides to 4x4 trips we enjoyed every second. This is the perfect place to scape with your family. Very kid friendly, still intimate and quiet

We had such an incredible trip to Cambutal. Hotel Playa Cambutal went above and beyond to make our friends birthday very special. When we arrived we were greeted promptly and efficiently, this was appreciated as we were very tired and in need of a quick nap. Once we recharged in the impeccably clean and fresh rooms we headed down to... More

Had dinner with some friends here. Interesting selection of Panamanian craft beers. Nice, simple, small menu. I am a vegetarian, and the chef was happy to make up something for me. Lots of mosquitoes, but the hotel has spray. Nice view. Good staff. Was a nice experience.

Hotel Playa Cambutal is exceptional! The staff is friendly, the food is soooo good (I recommend you try the desserts for sure!), the hotel is beautiful and small enough that it doesn't intrude in the natural scenery, as many other big hotels do. But the best thing of all is the sea turtles-- don't miss out! Contact Fundacion Tortuagro to... More

Great Panama Hotel with all amenities. Very helpful staff and awesome grounds right on the beach. Not your standard "hoity-toity" hotel like found in the city but great for the small town. Big swimming pool there and we actually saw monkeys across the street in the trees while in the pool. There were lots of hummingbirds out front and its... More

The hotel is traditional but it has amazing woodwork, a big beach and a great pool for kids. There are various dining areas (all from the same kitchen) so it's nice to change it up day to day. The included breakfast is more than enough and the staff super attentive. Their manager was especially helpful in arranging to have tires... More

The hotel was very nice, nice pool, food was very good and room was clean and had a balcony with a view which is always a plus! Employees could be a little more charming since the atmosphere is very nice. Breakfast was a mini buffet plus a main dish! Very nice.

We recently stayed in Hotel Playa Cambutal. And there at the end of the road, what seemed as almost nowhere was this delightful Boutique Hotel.

Beautiful and very clean hotel right on the beach. Staff is helpful and the food is very good, although there is not always a wide selection. One evening a week the owner makes a pizza which is excellent. The tuna burger is very good as well. You can take a bicycle (it´s free) and just ride kilometers through the forest... More
