Eco Venao is very relaxed, clean, friendly staff. I stayed in the dorm room and it was comfortable with a lot of space between beds. I was traveling solo and would go back with a friend or boyfriend to enjoy it with. Hammocks for chilling, enjoyable restaurant, smoothies at the beach surf dojo.

We stayed in Pedasi and went for a day trip to surfers' spot Venao. We ended up at Eco Venao which also has a surf spot at the beach. Rented a surfboard for a nice price and had a great time there. Shower is available and also some wooden beds. We do however believe they were intended for the guest...

I satyed with 4 other friends in casa Mango. Beautiful house with an amazing view over the ocean. The house is equipped with everything you might need to cook and it is super comfortable and nicely decorated. Only 5 minutes walk from the beach where you can lay under the trees, go for a surf or have a drink at...

we had a lovely stay at villa espave. It was a little bit seperate from the rest but we liked that. the lady at the reception wasnt very informative. The little shop in the front had none of the food or shakes we were hoping for. we had a look at the restaurant and went immediately away. The beach shed...

Our stay at ECO Venao was just amazing. The accommodation (we slept in one of the cabañas) was special, clean and just beautiful. The ECO Venao cares about sustainability and recycles wherever possible. Its so close to nature that the monkeys are waking you up @ 5:30 AM. We just planned to stay a night but spontaneously elongated our trip...

Very nice and layed back hostel. staff is very nice and helpful, every day new towels for free,big kitchen. What we really liked was the diversity of the guest ( young backpackers, older people traveling alone, families etc.) And the most important thing: they recently build a bar at the beach which is shaped like a boat and at night...

I´ve been travelling Panama for 5 weeks and must say: the one and only place that totally exceeded my expectations was this beautiful resort. Eco Venao has the most friendly staff, relaxed vibe and beautiful surroundings you can imagine. They put so much love and care in every detail you simply won´t want to leave ever again. Utterly recommended!!!

We stayed in a creek front cabana that we loved. It was simple, comfortable and offered us a wonderful connection to nature. Monkeys, birds, bats, lizards, all visited us regularly. I loved the simplicity of our stay. We hiked, surfed twice a day, ate wonderfully fresh and reasonable priced foods prepared at the restaurant on site. The restaurant staff all...

What an amazing and relaxing spot. The staff and property were fantastic! I will return next year, and many to come. Highly recommend this hotel to travelers. This property is set in nature, the waterfalls on property are great to hike, and if you do so, keep climbing to the vista overlooking the beach.
