          As soon as we got at Mamallena we felt welcomed. The staff there that evening was very nice and friendly and made us feel welcomed immediately. My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room. It was pretty basic but we didn't come to Panama...More

          We stayed there twice and by panamean standards it's quite reasonable. The staff are friendly and helpful. The place is rather clean and the pancakes a nice touch. The first room we had was a bit like a prison, with no window, thankfully with aircon....More

          Sorry about the problem with the transport, but it was true what you were told. We did tell the organiser how many people were going the next day and he was supposed to send his cars. He didn't send enough. We rang him numerous times...More

          We're glad you enjoyed the place, in your short stay. A shame that only translated to three stars though :( You're still welcome back anytime!

          I love Mamallena. Lots of attention to detail, fun crowd, good, clean rooms, friendly, english speaking staff. Wifi is reliable and quick. Their place in Cartagena, Columbia is a little nicer in my opinion, but thats complaining on a high level. All you need :)
