After reading all the raves and gushing about Randy and his lodges at Mañana Madera, I was afraid there was no way this place could live up to my expectations. Fortunately, I couldn't have been more wrong. I won't go into a long exposition on how great this place is; it's been covered by nearly 200 other stellar reviews. Service,... More

We visited Bouquete for 3 days & Mañana Madera was our most favorite place we stayed on our 10 day trip! Randy was the perfect host & made us feel right at home. The views were spectacular and the weather was perfect. Randy was extremely helpful with his suggestions of dining & hiking & the maps he provides are a... More

My husband and I spent three weeks in Panama in February, and this was, by far, our favorite stop along the journey! Everything was...perfect. Just like all the reviews say. A month after returning home, I'm still smiling wistfully when I remember Manana Madera. It's not often that a place stays with me for so long. While there, I held... More

Randy tripadvisor I wouldn't write this review if I thought Randy was a rational, or shrewd, buisness man. However, I am not completely convinced of his sanity. Anyone else would charge double what he's charging. I know, its Panama...prices are a little depressed but that doesn't stop other ecolodges and luxury resorts from charging $200 or even $300 a night.... More

I've put off writing this review for so long because I'm not even sure where to start. With almost 200 5-star reviews, what else I can say? Manaña Madera was truly amazing. Our only regret is not having stayed longer. Even before we got to Boquete, Randy was incredibly helpful and responsive by e-mail. He gave lots of great information... More

Everything we've said before...ditto, ditto, ditto! We love this little hide-away with the awesome hosts, awesome breakfasts, awesome views, etc. It's such a beautiful and peaceful place to just relax, watch movies, play games, visit, watch the birds and hummingbirds and enjoy some quiet time. At the same time, it is an easy trip to all kinds of activities and... More

My boyfriend and I spent three days at Manana Madera. It was absolutely awesome. Randy has chosen a beautiful estate and has thought of everything. The little cabin is clean, comfortable, and has a perfect view of the mountains. Every morning Chubs the dog was faithfully waiting on our front steps waiting for a little food and affection. Randy made... More

Well, it's hard to know where to start and where to end this review. This place is amazing. The quiet and peace is unsurpassed. The views that you see first thing in the morning of the mountains, coffee plants and orange trees are incredible. Chubbs greeting you at the front door waiting for his bite of your banana.

My husband and I spent four incredible nights at Manana Madera - the beauty of the place is unsurpassed. We arrived via a transport Randy arranged from David and never missed having a car. Randy picked us up and drove us everywhere - so for $7 wherever we were going we had a personal driver - who was both entertaining... More

My wife and I stayed 5 nights at Mañana Madera in Jan. 2015. The idyllic, picturesque setting was easily a destination in itself where you could enjoy a quiet, restful retreat in your own private suite or on the hammocks and chairs at the nearby view lookout. Our only concern beforehand was being outside of Boquete itself as we did... More
