Popa Paradise should not be thought of as the Four Seasons Panama. If the traveler knows what to expect, they will be very pleased with the hotel. It is not, however, a five-star luxury resort. It is a very comfortable eco-resort. Except for a neighboring...More

Thanks you for your thoughtful review and suggestions. We have restarted restocking the mini-fridges on a daily basis - this was previously the norm, but somehow it was missed during your stay. Regarding an activities assistant / guide, this is something we have wanted to...More

Wonderful staff, and delightful guests, but cheap linens, bedding, furniture combined with barely adequate meals makes this the worst all-inclusive beach resort ever. Do not get fooled by the pretty pictures, everyone was scratching away at their various bug bites.More

You will find most Caribbean islands are affected with sandflys and even though we fumigate regularly we advise guests to use an oil that we provide for free to protect themselves while at the pool and beach. All guests that heed our advice do not...More

Food, beverages and services are good but the resort itself is outdated, also the casita's and the suites. The staf helped as much as they coupe but thee have not the possibilities to do more. Therefor we would not recommand this resort.More

We are sorry that your stay at Popa did not live up to your expectations. It is encouraging that you felt our food, beverages and service were good, despite your overall unsatisfactory rating. I would take issue with the characterization of "outdated" - the hotel...More

Thank you so much for your great and in depth review! Those dreaded sand fleas have their days numbered. We have been in touch with an American company who provide an organic sand flea eradication programme, we are currently in negotiations with bringing them out...More

Perfect Honeymoon!! The place is amazing! We stayed in a "casita" for 10 days. In the middle of nature, natural beach and beautiful island! But the most amazing thing was the staff at Popa Paradise. Starting with Ziggy and Brendan, Silas and we can not...More

Hi! We do get quite a bit of rain, no doubt about that; however, October is one of the driest months, with below average rain days and inches. Apart from that, much of the rain here falls at night, so you can have a great... More
