The last time I reviewed this hotel was in 2007. I thought it was time for an update. I have been here many times since then and I continue to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and one of the best beaches in Panama. I have arranged two girls getaways and they were fantastic. The staff was super accommodating, even bringing us...

We can repeat all the positive remarks of other guests. ..but also have to address complaints: The area of the hotel is well maintained and clean. The beach however is quite dirty. High tides bring trash (bottles, plastics) that kills all the beauty of this unique spot. As in many other areas of Panama it is a pity that owners...

After some confusion about our reservation we found Villa Marina to be the perfect spot to relax. It's just 20 minutes past the town of Pedasi so you can get to a market if you need one, but otherwise, you are far from anything, with pure peace and quiet. And great surfing is just outside your door. For our anniversary...

Villa Marina is a small hotel about a 30-40 minute drive south of Pedisi. One drives through a gated entrance (you hit a buzzer to speak with someone who allows you entry), drive down a well graded dirt driveway, and come upon this welcoming, beautiful hotel. We arrived with the intention to stay 2 nights and stayed 3 instead. It...

It was my third time at Villa Marina but this visit was the best. The hotel changed: additional rooms with solid airconditioning and fans, a new swimming pool which perfectly matched the scenery and new employees which offered great service. The hotel is situated wright at a huge beach with great surfing waves. The beach is not white, but almost...

My wife and I spent two nights at Villa Marina, and we were very pleased with its cleanliness, big rooms, beautiful stone infinity pool, good food and service, and its remote location on a rather wild and empty beach. The only thing negative we can say about it is to mention the vicious no-seeums that attacked our exposed flesh while...

My wife and I drove from PC to Villa Marina-a drive of about four hours. The road from Pedasi to Playa Venao has alot of twists and turns, potholes but beautiful scenery. The hotel setting is quite lovely and secluded. It is about 40 km from the town of Pedasi. The rooms were nice and had AC and TV. The...

Right on the beach, excellent food, amazing surf only a short walk away. Beautiful pool but infinity was not working so the bugs and critters were building up fast. Friendly staff and well kept grounds. Rooms were clean and spacious. Wife and I just loved it. Expensive and over our budget but well worth it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We love the ocean as much as you do. So we have created the ideal place for you to enjoy the waves and everything the Panamanian Pacific coast has to offer you along Pedasí's beaches. Villa Marina Lodge is a one-of-a-kind place. It is located in Playa Venao-an international surf paradise-and offers comfortable rooms and first-rate amenities to make your beach trip a memorable experience. Unlike a resort, a lodge is more relaxed, casual, cozy... The location and its amenities will make you feel as if you were staying at a big beach house, but with professional service personnel and the support of one of the most renowned hospitality companies in Panama and the region. Either if you are on a romantic getaway, a surf trip among friends, or a group excursion to experience the area's natural charms, at Villa Marina Lodge you will always have your home away from home... on the waterfront. ... more   less
