We ended up in Isla Grande early one morning, rather by accident than by intent, and picked Sister Moon as our location for one night. The staff is really kind, but speaks not one word of English, which with the help of google translate is not really a problem. The rooms are very basic, showers are cold, yes, and all...

I really hope the owner reviews this because honestly it's the only reason Im bothering to write a review. Staff was amazing, view from the deck is worldclass. Suggest replacing the pillows and consider offering bottled water as a courtesy in the rooms for families who cant walk the 500 yards to the nearest chinito. Sheets were old, room was...

Stayed in one of the private "cabins" which was actually a two-story house with the most incredible view of the ocean and surrounding land. Did not use any of the hotel facilities, so cannot comment on that - the only feedback would be that we went to the main desk to use WiFi and the desk staff refused to give...

Very odd place. We hung around the reception for 10 minutes until having to venture around to find someone. When we explained that we wanted a room with two beds he seemed confused and almost annoyed that we wanted to stay there. He seemed to just pick a price out of the air. $82.50. We were given a room right...

We stayed here at a non-peak non-seasonal time so there were plenty of rooms available yet they put us in a room right next to where they were doing construction work. The bar was locked - and only served beer at night but tropical cocktails at noon??? The hostess was helpless in providing information on snorkeling despite the fact there...

We came here when the tourist season was low, and basically had the entire place for ourselves. Just stayed for one night, but enjoyed the pool and breakfast along with the hammock on the small porch. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was priceless. Clean rooms and very friendly staff. Would love to come back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sister Moon is an Eco Lodge situated on the Atlantic (Caribbean) side of Panama, at the end of Isla Grande in front of a reef where you will find charming cabins dispersed along the hill. Sleeping in a natural fresh air environment where you can hear the waves breaking as you fall asleep is a unique experience. To go back in time for a short period to a place that has no clocks or schedules, where there is no hurry or need for communication, to rest and relax in the inviting pool and enjoy a dish of island cooking prepared especially for you with more than just seasoning, we add a bit of Panamanian hospitality along with it. We want that your stay in Sister Moon recharges you with positive energy and gives you a break from the hectic day to day life surrounded by nature in an informal island setting.This picturesque Eco Lodge has eleven small rustic cabins: six rooms with a double bed; two rooms with two double beds; and one room with a double bed and a single bed. Each room has an en-suite bathroom and hammock with a balcony. We also have two separate general rooms; one for ladies and one for men, for the backpackers, surfers, or groups larger than five guests who would like to visit that have eight beds in each room. We also have a small open air restaurant, a bar and a pool table for your enjoyment. We are a pet friendly hotel but do ask a nominal per day fee to have your favorite pet roam around the property. Since this is a small Eco Lodge we would request that when you decide to visit us, you should secure your reservation by making an advanced payment in full. ... more   less
