My husband and I found this hidden gem on the internet and all the bookings and confirmations went smoothly. The welcome was warm and friendly throughout. The hotel is modern and bright and lovely views of the water all over the place where you look. The bath is amazing to soak in and looks out onto the gardens and sea beyond and there are plenty of little corners to explore in the large grounds with the tropical plants that my husband likes.; we liked it because it was almost flat and easy to get around. The food was good value and very well presented as well.
This was our second time in Panama, and we enjoyed the this area round Boca Chica in Chiriqui province area the best of all we have seen ; the chartered boat out from the hotel’s own pier took us to see the whales; ok, so we got to see some even if it was still early in the season but the dolphins on the way back finished off the day magically; you can just call a “lancha” boat and they can give you a ride to the little beaches opposite on Boca Brava and round the different coves and islands; it’s a great place for messing about on water. The Boquete coffee plantation tour is a must do (I never realized Panama had such nice coffee) , and the hotel can arrange that; it’s just about an hour and half drive away in the mountains…or nearer home the monkey sanctuary was very cute to visit!
