Hotel Bambito

Rte. 418, Bambito, Panama

This alpine-style resort overlooks sheer rock faces and lush slopes across a wide lawn with fountains. It's a bit timeworn, but rooms are spacious and the ample facilities are family-friendly. Just beyond a forest of towering eucalyptus trees are tennis courts, an indoor-outdoor pool, a Jacuzzi, and a sauna. You can hike a forest trail, go horseback riding, and take day tours, all arranged by the hotel. Rooms have hardwood floors and picture windows, and some standards have bedroom lofts. Remodeled in 2015 were rooms 314, 315, 316, and the 2-bedroom suite 401. Larger groups can request the five-bedroom house beside the hotel. Las Truchas restaurant ($$–$$$) next door specializes in fresh trout and offers everything from pastas to chateaubriand.
