After doing some research on my own to choose the perfect spot to take my wife on our honeymoon in Panama, I discovered Seagull Cove Resort. It was the perfect secluded romantic getaway for both of us. My wife was shocked by the beauty of this place.

The staff surprised us with roses and champagne in our bedroom, which was definitely a great welcome! The rooms are cozy and have an outstanding view. The food was amazing as well, we couldn´t have asked for anything more romantic than having a great meal while enjoying a breathtaking view of the bay.

Thanks to everyone at Seagull Cove Resort for this amazing experience, Melissa, Gus, Dany, and the rest of the staff. Enjoying our first days as a married couple in this place, will be a memory we will cherish forever. It was the best choice I could have made.We will be back for sure.

I stayed at this hotel because it was recommended by one of my best friends from Chiriqui. As soon as you walk through the door, you are astonished by the breathtaking view and the warmth welcome of Daniel. There are many options for staying in Boca Chica, but very few places offer you the sense of being in direct contact with nature without being invasive. This small resort (only 5 rooms) was built over a hill with beautiful trees, a creek and tropical gardens, with the most beautiful views of the ocean. It has been exquisitely designed to make their guests experience high end facilities without affecting the beautiful surrounding environment. Even though Their pool is small, it is perfectly located under the most magnificent tree, with great views of the ocean, for us it was perfect size for a small resort! We sat at the Tiki Bar or the end of the dock every day to enjoy the sunset with one of Daniel's loaded cocktails. Daniel, Grace, Gustavo and Anais will make you feel at home. Thank you guys for a wonderful stay!

After taking a water taxi from David to Boca Chica through the mangroves, arranged by Seagull Cove staff, we finally arrived at this absolute gem! The grounds are beautiful and full of wildlife. Our kids spent time exploring the intertidal zone at one end of the property and the abundant gardens at the other end. Staff were extremely helpful and accommodating and the food at the onsite restaurant was fabulous. The bungalows feel very private and most have amazing views of the ocean, especially at sunset. We actually landed the uppermost unit which did not have the greatest views, but turned out to be perfect for our family. Numerous amphibians, birds and insects were observed literally feet from our door… which for a family of wildlife enthusiast, is ideal.

Staff also went above and beyond to arrange a full day snorkeling tour to Islas Secas. We had previously arranged a tour and found out the day before that the boat was not equipped with two-way radios, only cell phones. When we expressed our concerns, they located a larger boat on a moment’s notice that had all the important safety features. I highly recommend only using boats that have emergency radio capabilities, especially when heading out to the outer islands. I also highly recommend a day trip out to Islas Secas. We enjoyed humpback whales, sea turtles, dolphins, loads of tropical fish and a hermit crab extravaganza on one of the islands.

Already looking forward to our return visit!

Dear Mr. Donahue,

We appreciate very much that you are taking the time to share your experience at Seagull Cove Resort. We believe you and your family experienced Boca Chica the perfect way! Boat Ride from David right to our dock, a fishing and snorkelling trip to the pristine Islas Secas, the perfect getaway for all members of your family. We are happy that everyone enjoyed all the fun activities and our beautiful property surrounded by nature. We hope to see you soon in Boca Chica. All the best, Melissa

Seagull Cove with its stunning views, beautiful furnishings, friendly efficient staff and hands-on management was the best accommodation of our month's holiday in Panama.
We stayed in number 1 of the 5 free-standing chalets, conveniently close to the open-sided dining area/bar & the small but adequate swimming pool. The 103 steps down (and up again!) to the dock with its own private bar need a little careful negotiating. We were well looked after by the staff through meals and an amazing whale-watching trip amongst the surrounding islands.
We would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the topmost bungalow which had fantastic views over the surrounding bay & islands.

I am a travel agent and travel frequently. When checking into the Seagull Cove I was surprised. Rooms are individual buildings and are newer. Really nice with a porch to sit and see the ocean. Loved the room. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Gus and Daniel were amazing. Very polite and helpful. Food was really good. Resort even cooked fish that we caught. I cannot say enough good things about Seagull.
When booking be aware that there are many steps so if you have a walking challenge this place would not be for you.
Try to stay on a Saturday night to enjoy the Tiki bar on the pier which is only open on Saturdays. Love this place and plan to return for a longer stay!

Dear Angelique,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about your experience with us. We are a very small resort, so becoming a part of your travel experience in Panama is super important for us. We are happy that you enjoyed the details that we have chosen super carefully for our dear guests. Hope that you can visit us again soon (this time with the whole family :) ) and enjoy beautiful Boca Chica once more. Cheers, Melissa
