I loved this little gem. My room was big and clean. I loved the two porches, the gazebo, and the hammocks! The location was great as was the woman who ran this hostal. I had a choice of seven? breakfast selections. Delicious! My room was $50 - expensive, but seems to be typical for Panama and this area. I would... More

We stayed in Hostal Dona Maria and had a wonderful experience. The location is great, as are the women who run it. We were fortunate that we were directed here when we just arrived in town. The two upstairs balconies were a great place to relax and read.

I booked a room at Hostal Doña María at the very last minute for this year's Semana Santa holiday in Panama. This nice place is very conveniently located in the center of Pedasi, within walking distance to restaurants, cafes, grocery stores and the main plaza. Also, it is very close to Playa Venao (some 25 min drive) and to Playa... More

We spent two nights here as we explored the area. Maria is the sweetest woman! The bedroom was comfortable, with an air conditioner that kept us cool.

We were shown to a lovely room with queen bed and private bath. On the way to see the room, we noted 2 "porch" areas on the 2nd floor. The rates were... More
