Villa 30 - Amazing view, pool, great beachesPosted Feb 1, 2015
Pros: Everything. It truly was a wonderful villa and resort. I will comeback again.
Cons: Many improvements are coming we were told (grocery store, beach club, more paved roads)
Location: You need the golf cart to get around since it is a very large area. There were excursions but we spent most of our time playing in the ocean. Awesome.
Our villa was beautiful! We loved the grounds, the view of the ocean, landscaped perfect with nature. We seen monkeys almost every day and several red frogs too. Food at Punta Lava was very good. Prices for food and drinks really reasonable. Staff friendly and helpful.

Beautiful but not quite what we expected.Posted Dec 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
This is not a hotel. This is an opportunity to rent a large house for a large group of people in a very remote place. Ideal for families or groups of friends, but not ideal if you are only one or two people because then you need to share a house with strangers. You need to take a water taxi to Bocas (the town) for nightlife. We thought the idea was great except you have to pay for the taxi if you don't want to take the resort shuttle during the few times of day it runs. The prices at the one local restaurant are equal to New York $20-30 per plate, and though the food is good, the service is horrible. We were very surprised by the high prices of all the amenities. The restaurant for the hostel (Kayuko) on the other hand, is LOVELY. GREAT FOOD, great people, great wifi. If you are looking for a poolside location with cabanas and drink service, this is not it. If you are looking for a private house to bring you whole family, this will be great for you. The beach was absolutely beautiful, but getting there then getting to the villas on the unpaved roads in a golf cart will do a number on your back- not for the faint of heart!

Wild & Luxe!Posted Aug 28, 2014
Bizar, een wild eiland met grote villa's. Race rond door de jungle in je eigen golf-karretje! Ondanks luxe villa's is keuze uit restaurants wel beperkt. Wel echt een wild eiland met mooie natuur!

Not what we expectedPosted Jan 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
Takes 2 boat rides to get here. Soaked and left at the dock. No one to direct you to reception which is a distance up a dirt road. We gave them our confirmation # , they indicated no booking. We booked a queen, villa private pool. Sent us across to another building, locked(all this in pouring rain) wait After 45 minutes, back to orig. building and they said no booking. All day,pouring rain. Told to go to the "restaurant" and wait another long hike. He agreed to drive us with our luggage. At the restaurant, they were out of most food. Were told they would be back in 40 minutes. 2 1/2 hours before we managed to get someone back to get us. They said they found our reseravation and blamed hotels.com for the confusion. I have never had a problem before. Up the hills on the dirt roads in a golf cart in the rain and arrive at "our villa" Opened the door and there were 3 other couples in the villa and our room was at the top of the marble stairs. Not anticipated. I cannot maneuver stairs. Back to reception. Manager indicated it was Hotels.com to blame for our misunderstanding, that we rented a queen bed in a villa with a private pool. Choose carefully. Be aware cost for cart rental. This is a Jurasic park experience,suited for those wanting a walking nature experience. Do not expect delux treatment. If you go, make sure you pick up supplies in Bocas Del Toro as there is nothing available once you get to Red Frog.

Mehr Schein als SeinPosted Jan 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wir haben 3 Nächte in einer shared Villa im Januar 2014 verbracht. Die erste negative Überraschung erfolgte beim check-in, wo unsere Reservierung nicht auffindbar war. Grund war ein Abstimmungsproblem mit hotels.com - scheinbar jedoch nicht das erste Mal. Nach einer Wartezeit von 4 Stunden wurde uns dann ein Zimmer in der Villa zugeteilt, was jedoch noch nicht unserer Buchung entsprach (twin Beds, kein eigenes Bad). Die Einrichtung der Villa ist sehr hochwertig und geräumig und größtenteils sauber. Insgesamt kann man sich das Haus wie eine große WG vorstellen, da Küche, Wohnzimmer und Pool von den bis zu 4 Parteien gemeinsam genutzt werden. Die Wege auf der Insel sind teilweise lang und deswegen kann ein Golf-cart hinzugebucht werden (die Strände sind in ca. 15min zu Fuß zu erreichen). Das gastronomische Angebot besteht aus 2 Restaurants in der Nähe: Ein Strandrestaurant mit abwechslungsreichem, aber hochpreisigen Angebot sowie einer "Sportsbar" mit einfachen Gerichten. Alles in allem etwas einseitig und es ist zu empfehlen, Lebensmittel aus Bocas mitzubringen. Alles in allem war es ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt, aber leider nicht die erhoffte Krönung unseres Panama-Aufenthalts.

The "hardware" is excellent but the service very poor; it was impossible to get in contact with the staff by phone or mail! Enrique saved us from a unpleasent stay, he did everything to correct the mistakes of other people and was a very pleasant host!
