“Beautiful location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

This is a very nice hotel perfectly located on the river, it is walking distance to town. You have to try the resteraunt, the food is great. Don't miss the breakfasts they are really good.

“Excellent food and beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

El Oasis is located right on the banks of the wild Caldera river which has now been tamed partly with a large investment from the government.

The hotel is kind of new, I have both stayed here and eaten here. When I stayed there (Early 2010) the room prices were quite good. Unfortunately their prices have skyrocketed to a point I now stay elsewhere in Boquete.

The hotel is very (VERY) nice although the rooms tend to be kind of humid, especially if they have not been used for a few days so it can get very cold and musty but after a day of use then it is all OK. The hotel also has a shared computer with internet and plenty of spaces to relax both inside and outside.

Their restaurant downstairs at the banks of the river is very cozy with seating both outdoors as well as indoors. The food is just EXCELLENT and there I will have to disagree with Roger from Miami. I had lunch and dinner here several times and had never been disappointed. Breakfast was served in a small terrace on the front side with a view to a closed garden with a small gazebo. Here you could see all sorts of little birds (as well as bullying bigger birds) coming down to eat fruits on the garden, what a delight to have breakfast this way!!!.

The service is VERY GOOD as well and I found the staff both at the reception and the restaurant to be very friendly and helpful. I have no complaints on their food or service. I am only disappointed at the room prices they have nowadays, sadly this seems to be a general trend in Panama to put high prices to get rich as soon as possible in detriment of tourists both local and foreign.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We had lunch in an outdoor area that was shielded from the wind yet the transparent surround gave us a great view of the mountains. The decor was very tasteful and attractive. A retired professional jazz musician was playing soft jazz in the background that was soothing. The waiter was very attentive and the food was outstanding. This restaurant was outstanding by every measure. Even children could not disrupt the sublime atmosphere as the restaurant has many sections and areas.

I would definitely recommend most highly.

“Not so great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

I stayed there for a week waiting for my apartment to vacate. The breakfast in the garden was very good way to start a day. I ate in the resteraunt 2 times but was not impressed with the food, not much flavor. Many better places nearby
