3 night Gamboa Stay

Spent 3 nights at the Gamboa Resort during our recent 10 day Panama vacation. The staff at the resort is excellent, especially Juan and Yohana. The food was very good and the room was spacious including the bathroom. The resort is in good condition but the furniture in the room was old and held together with exposed screw, basically the dresser. There were several old inserts in the bathroom that should have been removed and filled. Overall the resort is nice just a little more attention to detail is needed.

Wonderful introduction to the beautiful country of Panama

The resort hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms have a wonderful view over the Chagres River and the resort grounds, air conditioning works well in this humid climate, ensuring a good night's sleep! The restaurants served a good selection of foods, and the pool was spectacular. This resort is mainly geared towards birders and nature-lovers, being somewhat secluded. The area is steeped in history, being in the former "Canal Zone" and the property reached down to the road that runs along the canal. Many nature and cultural excursions and activities are available from the resort by land and by water, and the aerial tram on the property is amazing.

Quite interesting

We were there for a private tour. It seems like a very nice resort but it is for nature lovers. We ate the little restaurant and the food was good. However, the french fries were so cold they could have been out of the fridge. When we told the server we got brand new ones piping hot.

The best rainforest expierence ever

Wauw i was with my girlfriend to Gamboa rainforest resort and it was really amazing. Im like the typical tourist guy who cant sit still so there was a lot to do. There are many tours..we booked the gamboa rainforest package which included the arial tram and the boat tour and butterfly farm. Next to that we go for kayaking with emillio(super guide)both was really amazing. I recommend book the tours early ore late in the afternoon to have the best change to see animals. The best was the free hiking tour with omayra she is great she knew much about the forest. Also the free night safari was very good adventure.. i saw all kinds of wild life. The next day we step up early like 6 am to see the sunrise and we went for hiking to the pipeline trial. We saw monkeys realy great. You have to get up early to see the animals otherwise maybe you get dissapappointed. The service was great to. Specially from emillio and patricio. They speak good english and helped us a lot. Next to that you have edgar he is like the all doing thing guy who gave good advice what to do. Over all is was really a 9 with the stunning view and the service. The only thing i can say what could be improved is the menu of the lunch on the 4 floor. We like healthy food but there was only hamburger and chickenfingers.. but the buffet on the 3 floor was amazing for diner so after all we eat great. Man gamboah rainforest really got me. I reccomend this place for everybody!!

Love the rainforest

The location is beautiful, literally in the rainforest, amazing landscape and views. Rooms are comfy and spacious, but there was a moldy odor in ours. The tours were nice. For the walking tour is very important to bring insect repelent, otherwise the mosquitos will eat you alive haha.
