Gamboa Rainforest Resort in Gamboa, Panama

In Panama's lush Soberania National Rainforest, surrounded by the beauty of unspoiled nature is the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. Just 30 minutes from Panama City, this gorgeously appointed resort rests on the Chagres River and feels like a different world. The spacious and airy rooms, with woven wood furniture and plush white linens, provide a comfortable and luxurious stay deep in the forest. Wake up to the beautiful songs of tropical birds and enjoy the sun rising over the Chagres River from your private balcony. Or lounge on your balcony's hammock for a lusciously relaxing afternoon. At the Gamboa Rainforest Resort experiencing the wonder of the rainforest only enhances the luxuriousness of your stay.

After enjoying a hot cup of gourmet Panamanian coffee, take in the gorgeous views of the rainforest with a ride on the resort's Aerial Tram.

We stayed at the Gamboa the beginning of October. It's a beautiful resort and in October is very quiet! The pool is great and the room was nice. Because of the time of year some of the tours were unavailable (due to lack of people). My only complaint is that the food is very expensive and in the down season there is noting to eat without traveling into Panama City. We loved our time at the resort and I would stay again. The bridge to the resort is a a one of a kind adventure.

I went from the city to have dinner at around 7pm. Im not picky, but dinner wasn't that great for the price, neither was the staff. No good internet reception. The band was great yet we had to wait 3 hours to get transportation to the city. Uber doesnt get there and regular taxis codt more than what a trip to the airport would cost. On top of that, the hotel's taxi service was 40 dollars , which is literally unheard off when you know the costs of transportation in panama. Overall , dont let yourself be fooled by the paradise surrounding the hotel, it is bait, the hotel itself is not worth it. And take my not picky at all. You can do a day trip to the area without staying in the hotel, which i highly recommended you do. Anyways, hope you consider other options because Panama is beatiful and you dont want to leave woth a bitter experience. PS The guy from the entry which is a good 300 m from the hotel , wouldn't let the cab we finally got to pick us up inside the premises. We had to walk pitch black those 300m to the gate. Baffles me still....

We ended up here because of a vacation package, and I am so glad we did! The resort and grounds are beautiful, the staff extremely helpful and accommodating, and the food is abundant and fabulous. The pool area is very large and also beautiful. We took advantage of the night safari and the Gatun experience boat ride. On both we saw 3 types of monkeys, sloth, toucan, crocodile, tarantula, iguana and more as well as receiving good information and attention. We had a great couple of days at this resort!

First thing; getting there. If you are driving, beware of the bridge over the Chagres river. There is a 9" trench in the middle of the carraigeway which I drove into in the dark. It damaged one tyre and one wheel trim. NOT THE FAULT OF THE RESORT. They appear to building a new one so I hope it will be ready next year. The hotel was great, the front desk staff efficient and friendly. The rooms are large and clean with a hammock on the balcony. The bathroom was also large with a great shower. Air conditioning easily operated and efficient The breakfast selection was huge and good quality. Staff were great Evening meals were OK and reasonably priced. Pool and pool side bar were great but it was all a bit too hot for me. Hotel offered various tours and trips but a couple were not available so it was just as well I had my (damaged) hire car to drive the famous Pipeline Road. (The potholes may have damaged it further!) My only complaint was that the room staff did not replace coffee pouch for 2 days until I collared a passing room cleaner.

We spent two nights in this large resort, which we nicknamed Jurassic Park Resort, because of its sheer size and its location on the edge of a rainforest and a river. As requested, we were given a spacious room with 2 queen sized beds on the 7th (top) floor of the tallest building and the view over the river Chagres was superb. The balcony had a comfortable hammock and plenty of room left for a table and two chairs - great for a room service breakfast. In fact one breakfast was enough for 2 if you want to economise. Service was friendly and swift. We were given 2 complimentary tours: an enjoyable morning walk and an evening safari tour, with knowledgable guides. There were a lot more tours to enjoy. One of the best things about the rainforest is the constant sounds of bird, crickets and other animals. Unfortunately the tall building has a large and quite noisy central aircon unit at its far end, which rather spoilt our first night. We asked and were given another room further away from the noise and that made us fully enjoy the second night. I'd suggest the management put a little effort into insulating the aircon building and the Gamboa Rainforest Resort will get to its 5 star potential.
