We absolutely loved the time we spent at the lodge, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful ... the beach was uncrowded and our hosts were fantastic ... Lester and Doralys and their two daughters were wonderful... Stay here!

A friend from the states recommend Playita to us. The Hotel is on the Pacific Ocean. All the furniture is hand made by the owner and is truly beautiful. Every where you look is hand made art. Nature is very important to the owners so no pesticides are used here. The food in the restaurant is priced well and SO...

This place is a great spot. It is the only calm beach in Playa venao in which you can swim so if you got little children or just wanna relax at the beach and not play in the waves, this is the spot to be. After a dirt road (when it rains it may be hard to reach with a...

We went to this beach just for one day. We paid 5 dollar entry each and had the beautiful beach just for ourselfs. There are many animals around which is lovely. Only the hammocks could be replaced for newer ones :)

We visited Pedasi this weekend and was looking for a calm beach. Being in the pacific coast we had little expectations. After a search online we discovered Playita Venao. It's infront of the La Playita Resort. There is another access lower down the road but we didn't use. Seems off the beaten track. We paid $5 per adult to enter....

We enjoyed a day visit here. You pay $5 per adult, $2 per child to use their beach. The beach is beautiful and safe for swimming. It is sheltered from the waves that make for good surfing at other nearby beaches. There are two palm-covered shelters with hammocks and picnic tables. We were able to have one to ourselves. On...

This place is one of kind, a piece of art. Great beach, food was good and reasonably priced. Lester the owner is great! Get an oceanview room if possible, #6 is amazing! The best part are the animals. Many many monkeys. Also deer, emu (I think. looks like a small osterich), many more. Highly recommended place!

This is not your usual resort. It has been a creation of love; for nature, wildlife and architecture. It’s historically Panamanian with a modern twist. I highly recommend you give it a try with no preconceived notions. Accept it for its unique characteristics. There is no pool, but you are on the ocean. They serve meals, not high end, but...

“The rooms are quite large with refrigerator/freezer. Two rooms face the grounds. Two rooms are ocean side but views blocked by foliage. 4 rooms have ocean views. Two Suites on the second floor are underconstruction and will have great ocean views.”
