  • "Un lugar con mucho para hacer."

    Pasamos una noche en Gamboa Rainforest Resort y sin duda volveremos. Las habitaciones eran grandes y limpias, con una maravillosa terraza con una hamaca y una vista estupenda de la cobra Rliver. La cama era muy cómoda y el aire acondicionado funcionaba bien. Los jardines eran preciosos y el personal era muy amable y cortés, la mayoría (quizás) hablaba inglés. Había muchas actividades disponibles. El hotel en sí mismo es impresionante y la ubicación es increíble. Sin duda volveremos a participar en más de las excursiones y actividades. El desayuno estaba incluido en nuestro paquete (desayuno y cena) y la comida era muy buena para un estilo buffet. En el desayuno había un bar de tortilla y máquina para hacer gofres waffles y tortillas frescas además de la variedad de frutas y comida caliente. En la cena había buenas selecciones y la comida era mejor de lo que me he acostumbrado a esperar en un buffet. Algunos de los muebles pueden usar una reforma y una capa de pintura ayudaría en unos pocos lugares, pero eso no me impidió el bien que nos lo pasamos. Ya tengo ganas de volver.

  • "Excelente Hotel!"

    Estuvimos en el hotel del 28 al 29 de Junio del 2015, excelente atención, las instalaciones son muy buenas, los cuartos espectaculares, excelente hotel para descansar en familia en un ambiente tranquilo lleno de naturaleza a las riveras del Río Charles. 
    En el Monkey Bar nos atendió Jacinto un chico muy amable y servicial muy corte en el trato y sobre todo cualquier pregunta q le hacíamos nos respondía con una sonrisa y buena cara. A la hora del check out nos atendió Geronima una chica amable y siempre con una sonrisa en su rostro, si nos preguntan si volveríamos a visitar el hotel sin duda les decimos que !CLARO QUE SI!

  • "“What a gem!”"

    Riding through the city and heading into the rainforest with such anticipation of arriving at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, as its website showed such wonderfulness. Tired from all-day traveling, we arrived close to mid-night and front desk whisked us through check-in. Hearing the animal sounds of the rainforest was so exciting and gave such tranquility. The resort is packed with amenities and houses a Clarins spa and a boutique. Food was very good and prices very fair. The only fault I found was the room furniture needs was worn and walls need some good artwork to bring color and life. Beds were very comfortable and I slept so good. Bathroom was huge and updated with comforts. The private balcony was a little tight with a bistro table and two chairs, PLUS a hammock that stretched the length of it, but wow, it was so comfortable. The view of the Chagres River from the room was an incredible view and it took away all that needed updated in the room. To watch the sunrise over the river is incredible and combined with nature sounds, it is its own slice of the best. The resort is secluded. There is no nearby shopping or restaurants. It is an hour from the Panama City airport and a little over an hour from the Colon pier (we were going on a cruise) so unless you go to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort to indulge yourself in relaxation with nature and the rainforest (and what a great reason), it will eat up a lot of time traveling to points of interests. The staff was professional, knew what they were doing and very helpful. I will go back to the resort, but will plan it differently so there is ample time for everything

  • "Travel Agent Review"

    While recently in Panama, we actually switched from our hotel in Playa Blanca to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, and we wish we had done it sooner. However, we stayed two nights at GRR, and it saved our Panama trip. First of all, location is perfect, you are not too far away from the sights of Panama City, and the airport, and you are right there off the Panama Canal. The resort is on the Gangres River, which runs into Gatun Lake, located at the centre of the canal. As you approach the resort you will go through Gamboa, don;t be misled, this is not a town at all, it is a row of early 20th century homes built by the Americans to house their workers building the canal, and the resort is located on what was their golf course. It is neat though, and it seems that there are people living in some of the homes, looked like some students.

    The resort grounds are stunning, peaceful, quiet and lush. It was certainly a whole new perspective of Panama, after Playa Blanca. We were on the all-inclusive plan, and the food was awesome, first night we had buffet, which was not huge, but had something for everyone, and the food was fresh and tasty. Second night we were given menus to order off of, I believe occupancy was low, and hubby had beef tenderloin and i had lasagne. Both dishes were excellent, and there was plenty of food. Desserts as well were great.

  • "“Rainforest resort”"

    Gamboa is situated in a newly rainforest setting, only 30yrs.
    Lush landscape with many animal species you can see from the night exploration bus through
    The jungle interiors.
    You can buy an all inclusive meal plan if you decide to eat all your meals here.
    The restaurant , Corotu has 3 buffets each day, the first night was Italian. It cost us $44 for both
    Of us. It was not good. RCI members get 20% discount on food and drinks, 
    Los Lagartos restaurant , 10 minutes walk away is much better.
    Our one bedroom hotel unit is clean and tidy. 
    You are an hour away from the airport. Panama City is about 40 minutes away.
    You are in the middle of a rainforest compound unless you rented a car.
    We enjoyed all the tours. Panama Canal, Gatun Canal Expedition.
    Our first trip to Panama was good.
