We went to Los Establos for our honeymoon in March 2023 and it was like paradise on earth. The facilities and grounds are incredibly well-maintained and stunning, the staff is unbelievably friendly and professional. It's a very small resort so it's great for people who want to get a little off the grid (metaphorically - there is WiFi and cell service) and be immersed in nature. There is also a great sense of community given that there's only a limited amount of guests there - it feels very private and exclusive in the best way. The food is unbelievably good and food service was amazing - especially Yader who was so friendly and helpful for myself and my wife. The excursions were also amazing and stunning - the white water rafting is far but definitely worth it. The horseback riding was beyond fun. There's not a ton happening at night but the days have plenty of food, included activities and happy hour. We would definitely go back and we had an amazing time - it's the perfect place to decompress.

Property's Favorite Review
Like many, I won a certificate in a fundraiser and wasn't quite sure what to expect. From the moment I was contacted by Travis who answered all of my questions and was a pleasure to work with in getting everything booked to the moment we got to the airport to come back home, I can honestly say it was one of the best travel experiences my husband and I have ever had. Los Establos itself is just absolutely stunning and beautiful. The grounds are filled with beautiful flowers and the view of the mountains and volcano are gorgeous. There is a heated pool and hot tub. We upgraded to the premium suite which was an extra 50.00 a night. It's in a separate building with amazing views! It was a beautiful room with a king bed, living room, a huge walk-in shower and balcony. The bath towels were the softest we've ever had...they were awesome!!!! There are only 17 rooms between three buildings so it is a very quaint and cozy place where you got very personalized attention There were only a few other guests staying during the week we were there, so we literally had the whole place to ourselves!!!! The staff is absolutely amazing!!! Layla and Josefina at the front desk will help you book all of your excursions which are also included in your stay. They will go above and beyond to make you feel at home and make your stay perfect. Jean Paul and Franklin are so friendly to talk to in the restaurant and happy hour. The service they provide is absolutely outstanding! Jean Paul makes the best margarita....trust me!!! Everyone from housekeeping to the groundskeeper will say hello and make you feel special. There are excursions included every day you can choose from. We did the Panorama tour, coffee plantation tour, hot springs, Ziplining, rum tasting and the spa massages. There is plenty of other tours to choose from like hikes and drives to the volcano and white water rafting. There is something for everyone to do! The spa services were spectacular! There is a 30-min massage included but you can also get other services you pay for. I got a facial and it was the best one I've ever had! She did a great job. You get three meals a day included as well as happy hour from 4-6. There is a separate restaurant building on the grounds. The menu for breakfast and lunch is the same with plenty of options to choose from and the dinner menu changes nightly. Everything was delicious!! We did not have a bad meal here. Everything was top quality and made to order. It made it hard to go out to town to explore different places because the food was so good!!!! There is also a kitchen and living room in the main building where you can get beer, wine, soda, water, coffee and tea 24 hours a day. There is a refrigerator and microwave for your own food if you want. During happy hour from 4-6 you can also get mixed drinks made for you! You are a short taxi ride to town with plenty of restaurants and shops. To get a cab to go anywhere in town from the resort it was $5.00. If you just hail down cab in town to head back on your own it was only $3.00. This was definitely an out-of-the-box trip for us. It was so different than our usual beach vacation, but I can honestly say it was one of the best trips we've taken. I cannot say enough great things about Los Establos!!! I would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you have a certificate from Elite Island vacations that you have won, definitely do not be afraid to use it here!!!!! You will love it!!!! Just a few minor observations/suggestions that are in NO way a criticism!!! The shower in our room took a few minutes to heat up. Turn it on and then wait a few minutes(literally) for the water to heat up...it will! Having some hooks in the bathroom to hang up towels, etc. would be helpful. When we first checked in we weren't told about the key for the safe. You don't need a 4-digit code. It's a little key attached to your room key that locks/unlocks the safe. I accidentally set off the safe alarm by trying to set a code! It would be helpful if there was a little description added to the list of tours in terms of what they include, clothing recommended for each like if you need a bathing suit, jacket etc. just so you have an idea of what each tour is about. Since it rains a lot even though there were umbrellas in the main house by reception to use and the housekeeping staff was kind enough to give me hers one day, having an umbrella in each room would be a nice touch for guests like me who forgot to bring one!

Los Establos was my adult sleep away camp with alcohol, excellent meals and great accommodations. The day trips were amazing. Perfect for all types of travelers. I was in a group of 12 and it was so fun. We looked forward to our meals together. Try the daily specials as they are Panamanian dishes made with love and never disappoint. Marjorie makes the fresh daily along with the desserts. Every day was a surprise that we all looked forward to. Our favorite dessert was the ice cream and passion fruit cheesecake. Rob Barret the owner was such a special treat, he made it a point to check in on us and make sure we were good and taken care of. We loved getting to meet him and his wife. What sets Los Establos apart from any other all inclusive is the details and intimate setting. The happy hours with special drinks of the day would bring us all together to just chill and play some games or enjoy the sunset. The property is gorgeous with breathtaking views and a sense of peace and serenity. Tips: 1) book the excursions in the morning (yes the 7:30 am) for zip lines, etc. most people want to sleep in so they book the later ones. When we went we had a private tour for just 3 of us. Others who went later had groups of 20. 2) try or ask for the fry bread, think funnel cake put flat and oh so delicious. You can get these in the morning or lunch 3) Yader, Nairobi, Ricardo will take the best care of you in the restaurant. Also, they make the best fruit drinks (watermelon juice) 4) this is a relaxing place so don’t expect loud partying just good people with great food and wonderful hospitality.

WOW!! 🤩 What an AMAZING experience. This beautiful hotel is surrounded by lush green mountains & stunning views. It’s private & the grounds are immaculate. Friendly staff and delicious dining. My friends and I had a FANTASTIC time. Lots to do from zip lining & water rafting or just relax and unwind poolside. Best thing no crowds. I will definitely be coming back. This was one of my favorite trips.

This is the most fulfilled and relaxing vacation I’ve had in a long time. The excursions and guides were professional, knowledgeable, English speaking and fun! This place has something for everyone. Adventure…check. Wellness…check. Relaxation… check. Also, my room (Deluxe Suite) is lovely. Can’t say enough except I will be back!

Los Establos is an amazing boutique resort that offers abundant peace and tranquility. It’s a beautiful location with views of the surrounding jungle and a view of the volcano. I highly recommend this location for small groups, weddings, and wellness / yoga, fitness groups. There are plenty of beautiful hikes and other outings included, the food is really good, and the customer service is superior. We took advantage of zip lining (one of the top three in the world), hot springs, coffee plantation tour, hikes, river and more. The resort is a perfect place for rest and relaxation, but also mindfulness and self reflection. I will absolutely be coming back!!!

The grounds are beautiful, providing a panoramic view of the mountains across the valley and the town below. Pool and activities. Meals included and the food was excellent, although I think if I stayed more than three days I would have wanted to try some places in the actual town.

I, my wife, and four friends stayed at Los Establos on our visit to Panama and had a wonderful time. The location on the hillside on Jaramillo overlooking Boquete and facing the Volcano, Barú, was idyllic. The staff treated us splendidly, Alina at the front desk took care of making arrangements for activities for us, and was helpful with everything. The staff in the dining room, Nairobi, Marvin, Ricardo, and everyone else were brilliant. One person in our party had an aversion to cilanto and cumin, and the waitstaff remembered and they would alter the recipes for dishes to exclude it just for them. They also remembered our favorite drinks, foods, etc. Housekeeping kept everything tidy, and I never saw a groundskeeper, but the grounds were meticulous. The main building has a kitchen/bar area where they kept a fridge stocked with sodas, tonic water, and Panamanian beers, and there was ample coffee and tea as well. There's a room with a table at the end of the main hall for playing games and doing puzzles, and a lounge area in the main room. Every day there was a happy hour in the main main room where they featured two drinks of the day made to order (which were quite popular). There's a nice little whirlpool spa and pool that we made use of a few occasions too (it's a small pool, and too shallow for diving). We stayed on the first floor of the main house where the rooms are largely identical. They are spacious, equipped with TVs and TiVo (which I didn't use), their own mini-split heatpump for you to set the temp to your liking (though the weather was so mild and pleasant at the end of February). Each room had an armoire, nightstands, a small cabinet by the TV, an upholstered chair, a loveseat in a reading nook, and a small terrace with table and chairs for two. The shower was big with one of those rain-sprinkler heads and a riverstone floor (which I liked but my wife found too bumpy). The beds and linens were super comfy. Honestly, it was heaven.

When I won this trip on the Kelly and Mark show I thought how boring. This could not be further from the truth. This place is like a garden of Eden on earth. The place, the people, the excursions are all absolutely fabulous. I would go back in a heartbeat. over and over again. A special shout out to the wonderful, sweet people who work at this inn. You know you have found a special place when you hug the staff bye. A special shout out to Yader (affectionately known as Gator), Marvin, Nairobi, Josefina, Ricardo, Yarenis, Alina, Elan and all the kitchen staff. Nothing about this place was bad or mediocre. It is a dream vacation. The excursions that are included also have great people to teach you about this beautiful place. The owners son JJ even drove us back to the airport and told us the wonderful story of his family. What a delight. Would recommend in a million times over and I hope I have the pleasure of coming here again one day.
