Hotel's Favourite

We had an amazing stay at El Regalo Resort! We visited in July, during the wet season, so the hotel was very quiet but this just made our stay feel even more personal. The staff and owners were so lovely and helpful. They helped us book all our activities in Boca Chica, including a whale watching tour where we were lucky enough to see a mother and baby whale, as well as exploring the many remote idyllic islands and white sand beaches in the area, which was incredible. We are both vegetarian and the hotel and chef were so accommodating, cooking us something different every day and even providing packed lunches for our day adventure. The food and cocktails were delicious. The views from the hotel are absolutely stunning and you are surrounded by nature and interesting exotic wildlife the whole time, so there’s plenty to explore - you cannot beat the location.
We had such a memorable experience and cannot recommend this hotel enough. We would love to stay here again soon!

The minute you hear the Fountain in the courtyard your cares begin to wash away. A welcome cocktail in the bar/indoor dining area further sets the tranquil mood.The food was delicious and the staff helpful and engaging. Jenni makes you feel like you are in her personal home with the attention she provides. The most comfortable bed to date was also a welcome addition. The beach nearby is gorgeous and most times totally yours to enjoy
. We will definitely return when we are in Boca Chica.The only thing missing was a Howler monkey sighting.It will happen one day Roy.

Enjoyed our family trip to El Regalo with three grown children immensely. Staff treated us like royalty, and location was absolutely beautiful with views of the ocean, small mountains, and both sunrises and sunsets. Remote location was also ideal for some needed quiet time. Absolutely wonderful.

From the moment I arrived it was quite apparent that I had made the right choice for my vacation accomodation.
El Regalo is nestled on a stunning property and the well appointed rooms have beautiful views of the ocean, offshore islands, and mountains. The nearby private beach adds another lovely setting to soak up the tranquility each day.
Hospitality is definitely a hallmark of the experience offered at the resort. The level of customer service exceeded my expectations during my entire one week stay. The delicious food is prepared by a chef and each meal service is supported by attentive, cheerful staff. I wanted for nothing during my stay and was treated like family.
If you desire an amazing vacation experience doing as much or as little as you want, I highly recommend El Regalo Resort. Like me, you won't want to leave. I'm already planning my next stay there.

If you would like a beautiful relaxing beach escape that feels luxurious, but won’t break the bank, I highly recommend “El Regalo Resort” in Boca Chica. It is a beautiful five bedroom hotel with enormous, nicely appointed rooms and bathrooms, a/c, security boxes, shampoo, conditioner and body wash, sunscreen, luxurious towels, boogie boards, a ping pong table, games books, a great infinity pool with a llama raft and amazing views on all sides. They offer a well-stocked bar, signature cocktails and smoothies as well as breakfast lunch and dinner. We enjoyed fresh fish for dinner. The service is outstanding….Melvin & Maves were the best staff!

The very charming and accommodating owner, Jenni, can make arrangements for a boat to take you to the idyllic outer islands in the Boca Chica Marine Park or a guided tour to a huge waterfall and indigenous village.

There’s a lovely fairly secluded beach that is a five minute drive or 20 minute walk away from the resort. We saw green parrots and iguanas and could hear the howler monkeys in the distance. The sunsets are spectacular and there’s a special area with hammocks and chairs to enjoy the ever changing sky as the sun sets. With only 5 rooms, it is a fantastic place for a retreat with family and/or friends and you could have the whole place to yourself! All the rooms have great views, but the Parida Suite is extra special! We found El Regalo (the gift) Resort to be a real gem and we recommend it highly!

We had our concerns while driving to this resort because it seems to be in the middle of nowhere. However the customer service is hands down top notch. At my request, to surprise my wife, and prior to our arrival, the young ladies decorated the room beautifully with candles, roses and more.
The atmosphere was relaxing, food delicious, the background music was just that, background music, it was nice to eat a meal and be able to hear my new wife.
Lastly, the owner was frequently available to chat and checked in on us from time to time to make sure everything was good.
We plan to return in the future with the kids.

The resort is beautiful beginning with the manicured grounds, a fabulous infinity pool overlooking the amazing Gulf of Chiriqui and a private beach. Our bedroom was spotless with 2 king size beds, large bathroom and my favorite was a huge deck with a breathing taking view !

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The staff from reservations , bar tender , chef , server are all
5 star! The free breakfast is great and will keep you full for a vary long time . Lunch and dinner delicious with fresh caught fish daily and they will pack a cooler for you to take to the beach .

I can honestly say I am glad I live only 1.5 hours away . I will be back.

Simply elegant and charming escape! I was able to completely disconnect since every detail during our stay was perfectly curated! Location was ideal for going off grid and still accessible to so many incredible excursions (land and water). The staff, cuisine, and service did not disappoint. So much care was taken in ensuring that every meal was flavorfully prepared and beautifully presented. Great place for night sky gazing and enjoying sunrise and sunsets over the ocean. This is paradise and island living at its finest! I’m already planning my next visit!

El Regalo Resort in Boca Chica is a wonderful resort with amazing views, anrefreshing, gorgeous clean infinity pool, spacious lovely rooms with very comfortable beds. We loved getting up to watch the sunrise over the ocean from our huge balcony and listen to the monkeys greet the day. We had three meals a day at the resort and enjoyed the food and cocktails as well. So many special touches from the Hammocks, the relaxing alcoves, the gardens, the overlook, the infused water, the towels, and all the candles to light up the space at night with a romantic glow. The staff and owners were so warm, kind and accommodating to our every need!! This is a very special place and we will be back again and again.
