Calling all Hotel Mavens. We write about hotels all day long and you wanna know something? We're so sick of ourselves! We wanna hear your hotel stories for a change. We love it when you comment under stories and we love it when you comment on hotel pages. We also love it when you send us in-depth reviews to our inbox.

So keep sending us your stories! If we like your review, we'll even publish it. Now, here's a review from Hotel Maven KerryV who wrote in about her recent hotel stay in Panama. Enjoy.

Hotel Cala Mia, as seen from the boat.

Cala Mia had all the potential to be one of those places that doesn't live up to the expectations. Fortunately, we didn't have many; sure, the website looks great, but we've lived through enough internet scams to judge a resort by its website.

Yet Cala Mia lives up to its promise, and even better, is a great value. Everything - from the paths that connect the bungalows to the main cabin, to the hand-made furniture and open bathroom in the guest bungalows - is conscious of the tropical island setting. (It's also eco-conscious in an island-resort kind of way; there's solar power, but all trash is burned - which is probably better than hauling it across the water to a landfill.)
