My review is primarily for the restaurant. We arrived at the property just as the sun was waning. While we waited for our friends we explored the property and took a walk on the beach.The lodge and grounds are lovely. We were treated to a spectacular sunset. Phillip and the staff were very accommodating to our group. Service was very...

We sincerely appreciate that you took the time to describe your experience in our establishment. Our Chef expresses his sincere gratitude for your compliments. He is afraid he can´t yet compete with Canadian poutine though. We hope you will be...

9 room hotel with own restaurant and a reasonably large fresh water pool. Two of the rooms are part of the main building adjoining the reception area and one with windows opening onto the breakfast and dining terrace. I don't think I would have been happy with either of these. The best rooms are probably nrs 6..9. These are spacious...

Five plus hours drive from Panam City, all you need to have with you is love, and a good book or two. Okay, you will also need some easy cloth to change, tooth brush and few essential stuff. Expect to arrive to your second home, ( too bad we do not own this property) it is situated right in front...

Me and a team of friends – from all over the world – all well traveled - came to Playa Venao during holiday and stayed at the Villa Marina Lodge. It was an Oasis. Even as there were many beautiful things to do, see and tour available to us in the area, all we wanted to do was float from...

My favorite place after living 1,5 years in Panama / El mejor lugar después un año y media en Panamá. After traveling to all corners of Panama I finally found my favorite place to hang out during the weekend or during one week of holidays. The lodge gives you that very European feeling that is hard to find in a...

Villa Marina has the perfect location on the end of a beautiful beach...it feels like you have it to yourself. The stone infinity pool was lovely. The service (Phillip) was great. The food (breakfast, and we enjoyed one dinner) was delicious. Our room (#5) had double doors that opened to a porch facing the beach. Although there were other guests,...

Poor bedding, noisy airco units, overpriced, worn out furniture, breakfast table unstable, seats on terrace come with dangerous nails. TV remote control was falling apart, our laundry was chlorine stained, hotel needs a lot of TLC. We were the only guests and had to sleep in beds built for dwarfs. Staff and management extremely friendly did not make up for...

We tried very late to find a place to go for the Easter Weekend (being expats we didn't realize that every place is booked early). I finally found this hotel that said they had availability Sat and Sun. We wanted to leave Friday but NOTHING was available anywhere so this was the best we could get. We ended up being...

My family and I have stayed at various hotels in Pedasi and the surrounding area, and Villa Marina is one of our favorites. The hotel is ideally located right on the beach at Playa Venao. It is at the East end of the beach, about 500 yards away from the popular surfing area, so it is much quieter than the...

A great find - our first time. We joined my brother and his wife who have been there many times. A nicely kept secret. The pictures do not completely portray the great setting, all rooms face the water, and the pool does too. All meals are taken facing the ocean as well. The staff is incredibly nice and accommodating and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We love the ocean as much as you do. So we have created the ideal place for you to enjoy the waves and everything the Panamanian Pacific coast has to offer you along Pedasí's beaches. Villa Marina Lodge is a one-of-a-kind place. It is located in Playa Venao-an international surf paradise-and offers comfortable rooms and first-rate amenities to make your beach trip a memorable experience. Unlike a resort, a lodge is more relaxed, casual, cozy... The location and its amenities will make you feel as if you were staying at a big beach house, but with professional service personnel and the support of one of the most renowned hospitality companies in Panama and the region. Either if you are on a romantic getaway, a surf trip among friends, or a group excursion to experience the area's natural charms, at Villa Marina Lodge you will always have your home away from home... on the waterfront. ... more   less
