I was pretty torn on this review... Pros: Room and grounds are clean. Staff is friendly and helpful (They even arranged for someone to pick us up from the hotel for a day trip to one of the islands). Check in and out was quick and easy. Probably the best you can find in Portobelo. Cons: Location! This is definitely a day trip location, everything you “think” you would want to see is within a two block radius. All surrounding area is sad and dirty. (And I am not at all pretentious, I have visited many countries, am adventurous and will look for the off the grid activities, road side food stands, but this was by far the most disappointing) ... the hotel itself has no water/beach access, is Very difficult to find, so don’t go by GPS as once you reach Portobelo you will be looking for streets that do not exist (more like sidewalks). Breakfast was okay. Take away for me was don’t stay in Portobelo, but if you must, stay in Casa Congo.

Had a great time here. Ibin, the manager, was helpful and set up a couple water taxi trips for snorkeling. Breakfast was good as well as dinner in the restaurant, although it is closed Mon & Tues. Very clean and comfortable.

The staff was accommodating but didn’t seem to know we were coming, although they did find our name and had a room for us. They weren’t sure how long we would be there but that wasn’t an issue either. The room was very comfortable but a little “tired”. The bathroom was very nice and the shower was great; hot water and plenty of it. The breakfast was basic but good, actually the fruit and juice were wonderful. The staff was very pleasant.
