Service at the restaurant

Service and attention at the GAMBOA restaurant by ELIA was extraordinarily good !!!Thank you and congratulations !!!Unfortunately service by other personnel at the hotel was poor or average at the most. However after complaining, management was very quick and efficient in making things right; the way they should have been to begin with...The location is SPECTACULAR but the hotel needs some serious maintenance.They informed us that extensive renovation is due to begin shortly...Let s hope they do a great job !!!

Fantastic location

This resort is a little tired, but, the service, food, location help you to overlook this fact. After all it is in the rain forest and rain can be damaging. Our room was neat and clean with a balcony and a fantastic view. The food was very good and everyone was very helpful.

Beautiful place - terrible service

I came here with my three daughters for a restful day and some quality time for us as a family. Unfortunately the whole stay was a series of annoyances which started with the room not being ready at the official check in time, us hanging out at pool and lobby for two hours followed by 4 trips of walking back and forth to the reception and waiting in line for towels and to order food all due to a non working telephone in the room.These all might seen small issues but for me this special day was important. I came for a much needed rest and ended up seriously considering driving home which is only 20 minutes away and at this point my own bed seems to be a much better option than Gamboa.Such a shame...

Lovely place!

As part of our Caravan Tour to Panama last November, my sister and I stayed a couple of nights at the Gamboa Resort. It was my favorite part of the tour! Beautiful place, views, birds singing! Really a lovely setting! I am a nature lover, would rather be in the rainforest than a city any day! Saw several of the little agoutis on the grounds, the beautiful green parrots in the afternoon, and several different types of birds in the trees out front each morning. Also some very interesting monkeys.

Amazing location of the hotel

The hotel is set in an amazing location. It lays in the middle of a lovely rainforest, which make the morning and evening views spectacular! That hotel is the one we use on our Panama tour, and is the 1st hotel of the itinerary, which gave me a 'wow' effect when I saw it. I was welcomed with a drink upon arrival to the reception, and the concierge has taken my suitcases to be take to my room. The hotel has some lovely plants growing inside, with birds flying around. The food was great and the rooms were quite big with 2 queen beds for 2 people. The balcony with a hammock, I think that was the best part of it. The weather was a bit on and off when I went in April, it was raining a bit, then it was really humid, but the weather did not spoil any of the experiences. Definitely recommend, although it is about 1,5 hours from PTY airport.
