For 8 glorious days my husband and I and his sister and her husband spent 8 beautiful days in what the locals call paradise. We were just traveling with no set schedule to be any where in particular and after 3 planned days to spend at Gone Fishing Resort Hotel we extended our stay another 5 days. The people there...

Gone Fishing Panama Resort was a highlight of our trip across Panama! The locations is perfect with a stunning view on the gulf of Chiriqui and Brava. House and garden are beautiful. But first of all I want to highlight Bruce and Andrey who made our stay to a perfect one! Interesting discussions, lovely food, good drinks! Will always remember...

Gone Fishing is the best of the Boca Chica area. They have the best view, grounds, pool and the hotel itself is done in a hacienda style. With a large tastefully decorated Breezy Dinning/bar/social area. If you like Teac wood then this is a must see.....Has good access to the Water via there peer and dock. This area has huge...

Gone fishing was a great find! We turned up at the last minute and were accommodated graciously by our hosts. It was a beautiful, airy place with stunning views of the surrounding waterways and all the comforts of home. The food was excellent, the staff and owner were friendly and took great care of us.

Though the place is not bad, it has a nice view and food the big problem for my husband and I was the owners attitude. When we got there he told us that he had "a special room for us" and when they show it to us it was awful! Dirty, full of spiderwebs, the air conditioner was loud, the...

If you live in Paradise! We knew when we entered the huge lobby of this villa with the open air kitchen, bar and beautiful view, we'd probably never want to leave. And really that's what happened. We had such a wonderful time here that we scheduled another night days later after a trip up to Cerra Punta right before we...

I was at Gone Fishing Panama the last week in October 2011. The rainy season was coming to an end and the the weather was great. The resort is very relaxing, the food was wonderful, all the staff very nice and were right there whenever I needed something. We fished everyday and caught wahoo, tuna, dorado, rooster fish and cabera...

The resort/hotel is comfortable and clean (furnishings a little dated but I can see how it's hard to get anything out there). It's hard to get to without a car (even then you have to go on a rocky/gravel road) but once there it's peaceful and beautiful. The water and surrounding islands are gorgeous. They helped us hire a water...

We had high expectations of this place due to the Fodor's review. We called the day-of and requested a room, (we specified that we were interested in one of the lower priced rooms as we were only staying 1 night) the owner seemed really friendly and said no problem. My husband and I are a younger couple, but very polite...
