The hostel is on a hill above a little cove, with a path leading down. That's the best part. It is extremely remote and isolated. I would never advise a single woman to go there, not even two women together. The mattresses and pillows had black spots of mildew, and I didn't want to sleep on them even with a...

We checked on all the reviews before going and were really excited about spending 4 relaxing days at the beach. To our surprise all the pictures that you see are outdated, this place is super neglected and filthy. We have stay in all sort of places, and we are not picky at all. We visited it after the "new management"...

This was a place like nothing I have experienced anywhere else. It's completely remote. You have to take a bus (or car) from Colón (and the bus goes when it goes) and bring all your supplies, as there are no stores here. Ask the driver to stop at Morgan Bay and they drop you off in the middle of nowhere....

A few friends and I wanted to check out this area of Panama that is off the regular tourist route. Read the reviews here and sounded like a great place for a weekend night. Send Emails and Facebook, never a response and finally after two days of calling spoke to someone who said they had room. That should have been...

I was there on late 2013 for about 10 days. It's a really relax and friendly place, with a nice private beach. It's perfect fora little break on a long trip but also good to have good time drinking outside and meeting people. There's a lot to do and probably even more now as the outside chess board is hopefully...

Me, my husband and brother stayed here two nights in early June, 2014. It was the beginning of a six week vacation in Panama and it couldn't have started out any better.

Morgan's bay is a cosy little place with a scenic view. It is located in a very peaceful area though next to the village (20 min walk) where you can get some food and stuff. Their private bay is great, very clean water and greenish coast. Not to many people, but if you want to have a small relaxed beach...
