The houses at Los Molinos are obviously part of a real estate development for wealthier US retirees but the restaurant is still an awesome place to visit when you are in the area. The views are spectacular. A dip in the pool or play in the small play yard could be a nice break for the kids. The air-conditioned bar... More

We met a couple in Boquete who recommended we check out this place. We had a drink in the bar and discovered their amazing view there. A wedding was taking place, so they were full up but we were able to stay the night in one of the villas. The manager spoke English and gave quick tour of some of... More

The moment we entered the hotel there was beauty everywhere we looked. A stone pool which overlooked the canyon, the mountains and welcoming staff. An intimate space to visit the spa, a gym with huge windows towards the canyon, delicious food options and live music on special nights. Our room was beautifully designed and extremely clean with an unforgettable view... More

My review is for the restaurant. I never stayed at the hotel as I live close. I eat there a few times and I go mostly for the great view of the canyon because the food is regular and expensive and the service was always poor. The last time I ordered something with polenta, I haven’t eat polenta in a... More

Arrived at the hotel. There was a wedding party going on. We were told the restaurant is open but upon trying to get a table told there is no food. It was a noisy party and the doors to rooms are not well isolated. Party ended at decent time but the hotel were arranging tables and who knows what until... More

We went to the bar with friends for their Happy Hour. Our waitress was not very well informed, and did not have much information as for wine list, ect. My wife is Panamanian so I know there was not a language barrier as she spoke to her in fluent Spanish. We were told that "EVERYTHING" on the bar menu was... More
