If you have the chance definitely come and spend a couple of nights here. It is such a peaceful place but you have everything you need: great rooms, 2 pools, an amazing view - sometimes you can even see whales! -, great food including a breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, free wifi... and it is only 15 min into...

My favorite place in all of Panama is Pedasi - specifically Villa Romana. I've stayed at El Siteo and it just does not compare. The food they make for dinner is gourmet. The rooms are well appointed. The view is one of my favorites in all of the world. Thank you for such a great stay!

Good service, good food, good rooms, enchanting place. Really bad is the road from town to the hotel. Can authorities do something regarding the paving of those 7 kms. to the Villa? It would make it an easy and pleasant access to the hotel and back and forth to town.

The Owner , Hans is a well traveled gentleman and a pleasure to meet. The service is friendly and relaxed, the rooms were all excellent with comfortable beds and beautiful patios. The decoration of the Hotel reminds me very much of a Tuscanian Colonial Villa, the finishes are colorful and refined. We both enjoyed our stay tremendously. Every corner and...

We enjoyed our stay. It was beautiful. We weren't at the hotel enough, but we had a 1 yr. old with us, and it really wasn't conducive to small kids. There wasn't much space for her to run around since it's on a cliff. That is unique to our situation though. If it was just my wife and I, we...

This trip for me was one of disconnecting from modern life and just taking it easy in a gorgeous place. Villa Romana was exactly what I needed. Friendly service. Beautiful views. The town of Pedasi is adorable. We went fishing and watched the captain of the boat make ceviche right there in front of us with our catch. We chilled...

Villa Romana has a fantastic view of the panamanian Pacific Ocean. It is located in a hiden quite place, appropiate for relaxing and meditation. Its owner is a very good cook. Their staff is humble and very pleasant. However, I do think that the instalations need improvement and better maintenance of the green areas which were a bit neglected. If...
