What a beautiful boutique hotel! The owner cared about each little detail and makes you feel like at home. The view is just amazing. We had the opportunity to try La Vista Restaurant and the food was great. A clean, breathtaking place with amazing vegetation and great service. I would love to visit it again :)

Beautiful new building, the owner operator was very accommodating when we arrived early. Location was excellent with beach in front. Stairs could be a problem for older folks on upper levels so ask for a lower level suite. Will be returning again!

This beautiful hotel is out of this world. The beauty of the place is spectacular! Wonderful staff, owner on site. Choice of different rooms and suites so look at them online. When I was there the room came with breakfast. A clean, wonderful space with flowers dripping around the endless views.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Diane's villa. It's a 30 min ferry ride from Panama City and a five min walk up the hill from the beach. Amazing views from all of the rooms and the pool.

Very special place! All the details transport you to a fine European setting. We were very well treated during our stay which was private enough, just as we wanted.

We had a great stay at Villa Caprichosa's two-bedroon suite "La Choza". Marie-Helen and Thomas were very accommodating and nice to us - went all the way to find us a place in the boat (ferry).

I'll admit I am a sucker for boutique hotels, but this place was above and beyond my expectations. I hadn't been to Taboga in like 20 years and I am not a big fan of beaches or islands particularly, but it is always nice to revisit old places in order to be pleasantly surprised.
