This hotel offered a good price. It is somewhat isolated but the rooms are largish and the staff friendly. It does not offer breakfast but it has coffee toast and a toaster. At the price we were given it was good value for money. Needs a car or taxi to get there.

My room was all you really need. Two beds and an shower. Cable TV cost extra but who wants to watch TV while traveling in Panama! I liked the location of it too. Not in the center of town but it was quiet. It was a good value for the money as well. The lady who worked there was really... More

The place is nicely designed and the girls at reception were friendly. You can reach downtown Boquete within 7 minutes by Taxi, for ~5-6 $. However, everything about the hotel was just dirty. For the first time ever during our travels, we asked the staff to change the bedsheets, as they were stained and filthy with actual dirt and appeared... More

Nicely decorated and very comfortable hotel. Very clean, house keeping was really good. Has a nice garden where you can sit and have your coffee. Since the hotel has no restaurant and doesn't offer breakfast (but they do serve coffee which is a plus) we appreciated that there was a refrigerator in the room and microwave and utensils in the...

Located on a quiet mountain road, just outside Boquete....not too far from town, but far enough as to be quiet and peaceful. Walls are a bit thin, but we had other respectful people staying at the same time as us, so not a problem. The showers are great pressure wise and also with plenty of hot water! Our room had...

This hotel has both positives and negatives. The hotel decoration and the beautiful garden are on the positive side. The staff was nice enough, no complaints there. I can't recommend staying here though and that's because of the quality of sleep. The walls are paper thin so you hear everything. Not only that but, there is no fan or air... More
