My Tranquilo, quick little walk (250mtrs?) to the buses which are usually less than 5 minutes away. The way the development is layer out the highway noise doesn’t get to the nicest little place with the nicest hosts! On the bus you are 15-20 minutes away from Bugaba or David, good food and plenty of options either way. If you are interested, there is a livestock auction house about a 1/4 mile from the bus top walking towards David. Looked like a fun place to check out. Rain was threatening and I had things to do, but next time.

We've stayed three times, going to and from the Panama/Costa Rica border, and to/from the Airport in David. It's safe, clean, dependable, friendly. Well worth the 20 minute drive to/from the border, and about 30 min. to the David airport.

TIP * If you are staying one night in Panama just to renew your C.R. tourist visa, DO NOT TELL Panama border agents you are going for only one night. Say a week and pick some tourist spots in the north, like Bouquete. Then change your mind and come back in 25 hours... < :^)

My wife and I stayed at the Little Italy for one night on our way to Bocas del Toro from Santiago. We have a dog and the owners allow pets. They have 2 dogs also and our dog was running free with them with no problem. The owners were very friendly and typically Italian. The room was very clean with air conditioning and T.V. the amenities were good. Lovely garden with and above ground pool too. Set within an urbanisation it was quiet and has lush gardens. We had dinner there and the food was great. First a bowl of carbonara spaghetti followed by a lovely pork cutlet cooked with fresh rosemary from the garden. Then a salad followed by a crepe with ice cream. a drink was included in the price also.All delicious. In the morning breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, egg, pastries and toasted sandwich. Fruit juice and coffee. Ample to start the day. We would go back when we have more time and stay a few days to go to the nearby beaches. Having run a bed and breakfast ourselves it was refreshing to find this place with owners who are professional and organised. Highly recommended.

Nice property with owners that strive to please. I only hope it doesn't become too popular. The price is very reasonable. The location is convenient to David without the hustle and headaches of the city.

A wonderful place to Stay if your in David. If not try and plan to stay anyway! You won't be disappointed. Excellent rooms and breakfast and one of the best dinners you will have in Panama. ( Dinner extra but at $7.50 pp inc. Dessert, Drink and fresh coffee don't miss it). Plus relaxing garden and a pool! So good we changed our route plan to stay again.

A bit out of David but near pan american highway. Any bus to/from frontier can drop you off. 5 mins from bus drop off. Same bus route to David or border and more buses at David or border to virtually anywhere you need to go.

We stayed in this guest house for 2 nights in the seperate apartment accommodation which suited our needs as we wanted the option of self catering. On our first night there we actually ate with the family .The meal was home cooked and delicious and very reasonably priced at $7.50 for salad, pasta, meat, bread and cheese.We also had a yummy flan for dessert.
The B and B is a well run family concern and the owners extremely helpful regarding tours and information.
Our accommodation comprised a fully functional kitchenette with all the basic tools needed for the preparation and cooking of food.Fridge/freezer .Dining area.Seperate bedroom with double and single bed and a seperate shower and toilet.
Outside terrace with table and chairs.
Breakfast was also very good and varied with fresh fruit, juice, toasted sandwiches, toast , cakes and yogurt.
The owners have put a lot of thought into catering for their guests as even the Fridge was stocked with cold drinks upon our arrival. The B and B is a well run family concern and the owners extremely helpful regarding tours and information. We were even picked up by the owners from David and driven to the B and B!
The location is a little isolated being approx 22kms from David just off the Panamerican Highway but for us tjis was bliss as we had been in David for a few days and the residential country setting wad perfect for us.If you were wsnting to self cater you would need to bring provisions with you as the closest supermarket is approx 4kms away. I am sure if you didn't have a car that Bruno the owner would give you a lift to pick up some provisions.
This is a great place to relax and unwind and we would definitely stay here again.
There are a couple of eating houses about a 5 to 10 min walk away but don't do this as Donatellas cooking is wonderful and very reasonably priced.
Good place to stay either coming from or going to Costa Rica.

I just spent 5 days at Little Italy and the location, room, atmosphere, owners and even food were all superb. I had never been to Panama before and had chosen this place as I like to be away from the hub bub of the big city and enjoy the tranquility of nature. I arrived exhausted having just endured 20 hours of grueling travel. The owner, Eric, and his Colombian wife, Jessica, were on hand at the airport to greet me at the airport and take me to the property which is located in a serene, upscale area about 20 minutes outside of town. The lush green area abounds with trees, flowers and birds. The room was comfortable and spacious and in the morning a hearty breakfast (included in the room price) is served consisting of local fruits, juice, coffee, eggs, as well as cheese and ham toast! Eric's Italian parents who spend much of the season here add to the warm and cozy feeling of the place. I enjoyed heaping bowls of Italian pasta with tomato sauce and some of the best salads I have ever eaten. The whole team were ready at every moment to help me in my quest, which was to land a place to rent to stay in the area long-term. I would highly recommend this place for both the traveler wanting a safe haven from which to explore the area and those who may be in transition as I was, looking to make Panama a possible long-term home. Although there are inexpensive local restaurants within walking distance, I found that the food offered at Little Italy was healthful, delicious and reasonably priced. They also offer reasonably priced transit both to and from the airport and to the bus station, which made life a whole lot easier for me. Highly recommended place!

The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Unfortunately, the bed was so small and uncomfortable, one of us slept on the floor on one of our camping mats.
This place was tricky to find as it was not marked on our GPS and I hadn't printed the map from the booking site - we had to ask a local business to give us directions. Once you find the small lane off the main road, drive down, turn first Right then first Left.

We needed a place for a couple of nights so we could explore David (without staying IN David), drive up to Volcan, and drive to the beach. B&B Little Italy fit the bill. Located in a quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes from David (we had a bit of an adventure finding it, if you are driving make sure to get good directions beforeheand) it was convenient and quiet.

We had a simple room (one attached to the main house) that was clean, had reasonably comfortable beds, a hot shower, and a good air/conditioner (which was important since it was fairly hot when we visited).

We had both breakfast (which is included in the room rate) and dinner (12 dollars per person) there. They were very accommodating for my husband who has a few dietary restrictions. Food was fresh and delicious.

The owners are Italian but also know Spanish (as they've lived in Panama for 20 years). They do not know a lot of English however. But they are eager to please. While we were there they had some relatives visiting from Italy who were helping out who did know English. So between all the languages we did fine.

Their yard is fenced and a small oasis. We sat in the early evening under big trees and read and enjoyed listening to the birds.

The price of the rooms was very reasonable and I give it high marks for good value.

A unos 20 kilómetros. Es posible ir en transporte público (bus), pero para alguien que no conoce la región sería poco práctico y confuso. Sólo es viable si tienes auto.
