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.

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!!

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.

I spent 2 nights (as a layover at the Panama City Airport) about 3 weeks ago. The resort has beautiful grounds and offers some great activities. I attended the sloth presentation in the afternoon which was great (there were only a dozen of us so you really got to see the sloth), and the night time jeep ride (to see capybaras, monkeys and crocodiles). I didn't see anything advertising these activities either in the room or in the information provided at the front desk; I read about them here on tripadvisor and asked at the tour desk. The boat ride to the monkey islands was awesome; I can't think of a better way to experience the scale of the Panama canal than to weave between tanker ships in a 10 person motor boat. We had the unfortunate experience of having a storm knock out the power for part of the afternoon and again from the evening to early morning hours. On the advice of some traveler's website, I had packed a small headlamp flashlight which was really handy so I didn't have to burn my cell phone's light to find my way to my room or to navigate in my room. I think the hotel handled the outage pretty well; the staff was very helpful. But it is uncomfortable to know that there is no generator for emergency lighting and I'm not sure what kept the food refrigerated for dinner or breakfast. I didn't realize that the door to my balcony didn't have any screens and there are no windows with screens so when there was no power, you couldn't open the room to the night air without inviting in all of the mosquitos and wildlife. That made it pretty stuffy through the night. The hotel definitely feels a little shopworn. The furniture had some tears, the electrical sockets come out of their fittings, there were exposed wires hanging below the sink. There was still some hair left in the sink. The bed was not just soft but I'm thinking the mattress was beyond its expiration date. It just feels like it needs an injection of cash to bring the common rooms and guest rooms up to a resort feel and then maybe a little more attention to housekeeping. On the other hand, families with young children should feel comfortable that the rooms are basically clean and functional without being too fancy and that the resort offers lots of activities (and a nice pool) to keep the kids happy.

I just returned from the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. I would give the resort a five star, but there were a few glitches. We checked in and received our welcome drink from a very friendly staff. The bellman Angel carried our suitcases to our room which was lovely. Unfortunately, our key stopped working. I went back to the front desk and they dispatched a repairman immediately. It turned out that the lock was broken and Angel returned to immediately moved us to another room. The second glitch was with our reservation. We had a reservation from RCI for Saturday, May 20th - Saturday May 27. At check in, they said that the hotel was closing on Wednesday May 24th for renovations! So why did they allow RCI to make the reservation for us?!??! We had to scramble to find another hotel for the remainder of our stay in Panama since we had nonrefundable airline tickets. Rosa at the tour desk was extremely helpful in rearranging the tours we had booked so we didn't miss any of our excursions. We were annoyed that we had to leave early. The tours we took were the full transit Panama Canal tour, the Embera Indian village, the Aerial Tram, the Ecological Exhibition, the Sloth, and the Miraflores Locks tour. Our tour guides, Christopher, Luis, Gus, Gilberto, and Mike were friendly and very knowledgable. Their English was excellent because my mother does not speak Spanish. We wish we could have stayed the full week. We will definitely come back.
