This is a small 2 room B and B in a lovely courtyard villa that surrounds a pool. The neighborhood is beautifully quiet and occupied predominantly by millionaire weekenders. The white sandy beach is exquisite; very quiet with a couple of small restaurants. I suspect this stretch of beach is ripe for development but for now it's a haven for... More

Hello All, As they say all good things must come to an end and so it is with a heavy heart that Nadine and I will no longer be involved with Villa Botero Bed and Breakfast. We are going on to hopefully new adventures in what has been an exciting journey. We want to take this oppotunity to express our... More

We were lucky to find this B&B and be able to stay for 2 nights without reservations. There are only 2 rooms available, so if you want to be sure of getting a room - please reserve in plenty of time! Nadine and Ralph are wonderful people and you feel welcome as soon as you enter their property. We also... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this location for four nights the week of New Year’s 2014. We decided on this property for a few reasons: cost (a very reasonable $125 a night, taxes included), location (only 2hrs from the airport, close to the beach), and Trip Advisor reviews. As far as our experience at the Bed and Breakfast itself,... More

This was our first trip to Panama so we had the normal angst about visiting a country that we had never been to. We were also renting a car so that added to the preliminary pre-trip jitters. We decided to use Villa Botero as our base as we explored the country. We made a great choice. Ralph and Nadine not... More

We stayed with Nadine And Ralph over Easter weekend. Located next to the beach. About a 10 min walk. Great Spanish restaurant nearby. Nadine and Ralph gave us some great recommendations that were spot on!

We really enjoyed the hotel and staying with Ralph, Nadine and their four dogs. they were really nice to us, prepared a lovely breakfast, allowed to us enjoy the great pool and all the good stuff that everyone is saying here. However the check out was really weird. We left the room at 12.40 PM rather than at 12PM. But... More

These guests were informed by phone, email and in person when they arrived that we will have to adhere to the 12 noon checkout as we had guests for both rooms arriving at 1pm. They stayed in their room until 1245 before leaving at which point we had to scramble to prepare the room for the arriving guests. At no... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Botero. Ralph and Nadine made us feel welcome and were always there when we needed them but were never there when we didn't. They mention their dogs on the main page so if you're allergic this might not be the place for you. My only complaint is Ralph's breakfast. It was so... More

Really nice self contained room. Comfy bed, with nice room and AC and fridge. Great hosts! The breakfasts were wonderful! The public beach access was limited. The beach was ok but not the best spot in Panama.

I am so glad we picked this lovely bed and breakfast spot. Highly recommend!!! The location is beautiful, a great walk to the beach and later a very pleasant stroll to superb restaurant Xoko. Apart from the many raves I can give to Villa Botero, it is Nadine and Ralph who make staying here so extra special. They are the... More

Great B&B in Santa Clara with fantastic hosts Ralph & Nadine. We enjoyed soaking in the pool late afternoons and visiting. Room was very nice, clean. They provided us with transportation to & from the bus stop, provided great information on places to see, where to shop and eat.
