Reviews for Gamboa Rainforest Resort
Just spent 2 nights here. Despite being worried as other reviews weren't great we had a good time. Pool is huge with volleyball net and basketball hoop in the pool to add some variety along with a pool bar. Breakfast was good standard and although you are limited for restaurants as nothing close by the 3 restaurants in the complex are of okay standard and with okay prices. We joined the free walk in the morning and the night drive in the evening and saw few animals (2 toed sloth for instance). The view from our room was really nice and room itself was more than sufficient. A good option to escape the city and see some wildlife.

The front lobby staff makes every attempt to assist with early check in. They are helpful and kind. I needed a wheelchair due to broken ankle and far location of my room. Bellmen are also very prompt and professional. The rooms are definitely dated but comfortable. The tours are ok. The best is the lake tour. Monkeys, alligators, all doing well as megafreighter ships pass through this section of the Panama Canal. Quite a land of contrasts!

Very disappointed with most aspects of what is advertised . Room HVAC inadequate ( average room temperature 80 ) Spa ? What Spa Just the start of a list of problems Especially the spa facilities , jacuzzi is in a permanent drained mode, dry sauna not operable. Unprofessional masseuse in many ways; For example: comes and goes during massage repeatedly . Stands outside room with front desk attendant and texts ! And then over charged me ! I could go on with other room problems , but just want to put this resort behind in my travels . A beautiful resort too . It's a shame I will mention one positive , the food was pretty good .

A large and rather fancy hotel with an impressive lobby with enormous windows, over looking the outdoor pool, grassy areas, and the river. The rooms are very nice and well kept and even have a hammock on the covered deck. Meals were included, were buffet style with a large selection and were quite good. The desert selection was especially impressive.

Big all inclusive resort at the "end of the road" in Gambia Panama. There was a large pool we never used as we were out doing activities all day. Huge bathrooms. Hammocks on balconies if you ask. Service at the bar was a bit slow but was also busy. Open for breakfast very early. Lots of variety. Not high season so which restaurant was open during any one meal time was a bit erratic.
