I like the view from the balcony of the room and at the restaurant veranda. Birds can be seen around the surrounding ground. But it can be a zoo at times, specially during weekends when more locals visited the place for its big swimming pools...Food is just ok at times..but most of the times mediocre and served cold after you have waited for 30 mins for your food to be serve. Rooms don’t expect will be perfect eventhough they have rooms only reserve for high paying customers or booked directly thru Gamboa...I think most of the rooms need a makeover specially the bathroom area and a coat of paint outside the bldgs looks dingy. But the staff are friendly and very accommodating!

We chose Gamboa because it was out in the rain forest, but because of that there are no other places to eat except their facilities if you don't have a car. We enjoyed breakfast and the snack bar, but didn't eat in the dining room for other meals. There are no prices on the menu, but you can ask. We were there in the off season, so it was a bit rainy, but we enjoyed the quiet. It looks like the place could really be jumping with families in season.

I've been staying for three years in a row at Gamboa Resort because of a famous half marathon that is made every year and starts at the hotel. The hotel is great for that race and also for any other given weekend. Lots of nature. Last year I complaint with the staff because the half marathon usually ends around 9:30am and the breakfast was served until around 10am, so by the time the runners reach the hotel to get something to eat, breakfast was over. But this year they make a special breakfast room for runners that starts around 11am. This was just perfect!! Thank you for this, I hope I can stay a fourth year in a row in this hotel.
