When we were asked into an Air Panama club room while waiting for the flight to Hacienda Del Mar, we knew we were in for an exclusive experience. Landing on the island's airstrip, I could imagine Hervé Villechaize yelling "da plane, da plane!" as we arrived. We arrived with another family and we were HDM's only guests for 2 of...

Hacienda del mar is a "movie-like place".if you need to unwind, relax, enjoy the ocean, feel in peace with the world and the mankind this " The place". The food is good, I had spaghetti cooked "al dente", tender meat and fresh "pescado" every day. The service is a 5 star service, the personnel loves to pamper the guests and...

My husband and I spent a fabulous weekend in Hacienda del Mar, the only thing we dislike is we couldn't stay longer than a weekend :D! We will back!! We have a great flight, we're lucky with the weather because we went during the rain season. Since the moment we got there we're more than welcome to this beautiful exclusive...

This trip was a flashback to the show "Fantasy Island" .............from the moment our six-seat plane flew down a grass runway with sheep and goats to our reception with a tropical drink in our hands, we were continually amazed by the level of hospitality we received. Our meals were over the top, especially the lobster salad, where our only complaint...

Went here for a few days with a group of guys from work, as a retirement party. It was truly a unique experience and after reviewing the lower star ratings I believe people need to realize that you are off the grid with most of the infrastructure built in the 40's by the US military that is now a family...

We spent two nights on the island with our two boys ages 8 and 11. We all enjoyed the stay and the flight. Going to the island is adventure. The rooms are best described as rustic but appropriate for the environment. We literally used the rooms as a place sleep since there were enough activities to keep the boys happy...

We'd been to the Pearl Island before (Contadora and Saboga), but the island of San Jose feels like somewhere else entirely - a private oasis just a 30 minute flight from Panama city. The island is huge compared with Contadora, and there is only one hotel, so the whole island is basically yours. The hotel will arrange a boat or...

The wildlife here is amazing. I was in awe of the birds. A toucan joined us for lunch. He flew right to our table and an iguana roamed around by the pool as I relaxed on a hammmock. Our junior suite was clean and air conditioned and had great views with a fabulous balcony. It felt very private. Some of...

Private, beautiful and good food. Magnificent beach, all you could ask for and more. The facility although showing it's age a little is very well maintained. The only noise disruption came from the tropical birds as they fed. Truly a treat. The staff was helpful and any issues with language was patiently worked out.
