4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2011

We were here while we were househunting in Boquete - it was really nice. Very, very quiet with a brook that runs to the rear of the property (where a small porch is perfect for yoga). This is a beautiful facility with stunning decor and immaculate grounds. The staff is super, super friendly and helpful - Andrew and Alexandra were simply wonderful We never could ascertain the hours to use the exercise room - but it was also top notch. The only downside was the lack of restaurant facilities - however the local restaurant venue is within walking distance.

The Haven is the place to stay in Boquete. My wife and I stayed there last week and we couldn't have been happier. The rooms were beautiful the property was gorgeous, and the service was excellent! And we have pretty high standards! My wife and I work at the top rated resort in North America, The Four Seasons Maui and we have a lot of standards we need to adhere to. Service is key to a great property, and Priscilla at The Haven was exceptional. She went above and beyond to pamper us. If we were to change anything about our trip in Panama, we'd have stayed here at The Haven much longer. Can't wait to get back and stay again!

The Haven is a beautiful modern hotel and the staff and owner make your stay as comfortable as possible. They offer a free breakfast with coffee and tea in your room. The spa facilities are amazing and they offer a wide variety of services. The facilities and pool are just wonderful!

Really lovely, quality hotel. Stayed three nights. It's small and peaceful, with only five guest rooms. Close to town (an easy drive). Gorgeous location. Panama is not the best for service, but the staff here is international and Priscilla (the manager) is amazing! Great spa, had two good massages. Good fitness center. The room rate includes a light in-room breakfast (coffee, fruit, yogurt, granola). Highly recommended!

I loved my stay at the Haven. The hotel is beautiful, with a nice, well-appointed gym, a small but lovely spa and modern, clean rooms. French press coffee and light breakfast in the room is a real bonus. The staff was super helpful and friendly, and the owner, Howard, was a great host. Even though my room opened into the parking lot, it was really quiet, and I never heard a peep at night (okay, maybe a frog or two, but you know what I mean). It's also a really short walk to the center of town, making it really easy to get to know Boquete.

A couple of things to note - the hotel is only staffed from 7 am to 7 pm, so plan arrivals accordingly. There are no phones in the room, which wasn't a problem for me, but if you want a cab called after 7, make sure to see the front desk early. Also, the queen room was comfortable for one, but might be a little tight for two.

My wife and I stayed at The Haven for 2 nights in Boqeute. Location is great-- just down the main road from the 'downtown' of Boquete, approximately 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk. Rooms are modern (new), very clean, and well appointed. Bathrooms are spacious. Grounds are picturesque. The Spa is reasonably priced. Service was fantastic and they were very helpful in making recommendations and reservations for restaurants and activities in the area. Only suggestion for improvement would be to provide better high speed internet (it was free, but very very slow). Absolutely no reservations in recommending The Haven.
