The suites are amazing, the hosts (Randy and Chubbs) are 7 star, and the natural beauty of the property and it's surroundings will lower your heart rate a few beats as I've never felt so stress free.
Randy picked us up from town and drove us up to his beautiful coffee estate way in the mountains. You could tell that every piece of his property was thought out and wanted to combine that beauty of panama's great boquete region with modern decor and accents. As soon as Randy showed us te suites he gave us a cell phone and literally said "whatever you need just call me". He also showed us his breakfast routine where the guests can write down on a white board what they want for breakfast, leave it outside the door with the time you want it and voila, it appears the next morning at that time with great presentation and fresh quality...
We woke up in the middle of the night to a beautiful sunrise, went back to bed, and then woke up again to a double rainbow. The added touch to this place is that there is this affectionate dog named Chubb who is literally waiting at the screen door for you every morning. He is such a SOOK so if you pet him realize you'll probably be there for 20 minutes while he falls asleep hahah...
After you get some quality time in with Chubbs you brew the freshest best coffee you could imagine and go down to the terrace to look at the view. We bought 3 bags of this coffee before leaving as it was just too good and Randy bagged it right there for us on demand. He also drove us into town many times, took us to a point that we did a self-guided hike which was awesome because it was free and just as good as any other and he picked us up after.
Without rambling on too much, this is absolutely a must see and stay if you ever go to Panama!! I would probably come back and stay a week at this place just to relax and clear my head!!
Thanks Randy, you're the man buddy...
