Driving from Panama City to Playa Venao takes 4-5 hours but very easy and many places on the way to take a short break. When booked at El Sitio, we chose to stay at one of the condos - a new, clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped 2-bedroom condo, located just 1-minute walk from the amazing and peaceful beach....

I was surprised that this famous surf resort beach and area was so sparsely occupied. I visited at the start of low season, but expected more people to be there. This was a feature and not a criticism! The hotel fronts the beach though my room was tucked towards the back of the small hotel. My room was small but...

We stayed in El Sitio in a 2 bedroom condo and absolutely loved it! The condo was brand new, very clean, and nicely decorated and well organized. The location couldn't be better - literally a 2 minute walk to the beach! The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen nice to have to be able to prepare a few meals...

I will start by saying that there is something about the atmosphere in this place. Something magical, something mystical, something that you can barely find nowadays when you travel around the world. Simple menu in the restaurant, but no matter what you order - it is sooooo delicious. When the sunset approaches, Tal and Tomer take control of the DJ...

We flew in from the states for five days and it was exactly what we wished for. Very nice clean and comfortable hotel. Service is great at the restaurant and the vibe close to sunset time by the bar was amazing!!!

I was there for a relaxing trip by myself and while the main purpose was to get some nice and peaceful rest, it didn't really go that well starting with the fact that the first morning there were people cutting the trees downstairs around 7:40am and woke me up. The second morning there was a very loud noise at 7am...

Overall we had a good experience. It's definitely a great spot if you're looking to surf. There's not too much around the area as it seems to be a newly developing area. Other than more hotels and a couple restaurants it's mostly just the beach. Weekends can be quite busy however as they have a live DJ and dancing. The...
