“Gorgeous garden setting with gracious hosts and staff”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We spent 4 nights, honeymoon, before heading to Bocas. From Susan's help on the web prior to arrival, we knew exactly who to rent a car with, who to bird watch with, and rafting too. Felt very well taken care of especially by Abel who picked us up at airport and allowed us to leave the rental car in boquete when we were leaving for Bocas. John led bird watching and we looked for (only heard) quetzals. We ate at George's a 1 min walk and thought it was the best meal better than the trying to hard upscale panamonte. George's was not much more than a shelter but had fireplace and roasted lobster yum!!

My husband and I spent four nights in this Panamanian paradise! The setting is magnificent! Our room was lovely and the service was excellent. All of the staff members were extremely helpful as well.

The Inn is owned by Susan and Jason, a delightful, warm couple who make you feel very special. Each morning we had a delicious complimentary breakfast, complete with local fruits, a delicious scone, cereal, yogurt and coffee or tea. Beautiful birds dropped in everyday to enjoy their own tropical fruits!

Each afternoon, we enjoyed a lovely social hour with other hotel guests as we sipped our free drink and chatted with people from across the globe while we watched the sunset and the amazing foliage.


It doesn't get any better than this! The Boquete Garden Inn is sensational and we were thrilled to have found this jewel of a Bed and Breakfast.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are wonderful!

Our family of 10 stayed for a week at Boquete Garden Inn. Jason the owner was extremely knowledgeable about day trips we could take to maximize our experiences in the cloud forest. We hiked, took a boat trip, went ziplining, and ate at wonderful nearby restaurants, ending each day with a lovely Social Hour in the garden and starting each day with a fresh cut fruit breakfast amidst the flowers and birds. I would recommend Borquete Garden Inn to anyone who appreciates a beautiful environment, finely appointed rooms, top notch staff service, and a relaxed attitude. 5 stars!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are lovely!

The Boquete Garden Inn is the most beautiful bed and bath where we have ever stayed. The grounds are gorgeous with native birds being entice with local fruit offerings. Staff is gracious and typically invisible. I will stay there again if we ever visit Panama in the future.

This hotel is amazing. The grounds & rooms are gorgeous. The staff -including the owner- are so nice, open, and friendly. The hotel offers great touches, like a social hour with complementary drink and a great breakfast. The tours & other recommendations that the staff arranged were all wonderful. It's a fantastic place, and for a good price.

Amazing service. A little off the beaten path but worth the 3 min cab ride. We arrived late and were going to walk to dinner, but the owner of the hotel happened to be leaving at the same time and drove us over....talk about service. Between him (English) and the manger Robert (from K.C.), we swore that we'd write our first ever review on trip advisor. Couldn't have been more helpful with early packed b-fasts for our hike, taxi arrangements, and booking our shuttle to Bocas.

In late June, my wife, two boys (17 & 15) and I spent 3 nights at Boquete Garden Inn. While the staff was friendly and the garden setting was nice, we had some issues.

First, the toilette in our room was "fragile". It backed-up twice, and the first back-up occurred in the evening after the hotel staff left the premises -- so we didn't have a plunger and consequently, we had to live with the flooded bathroom through the next morning.

Second, we were surprised that we had to pay for a simple egg breakfast (and they consistently over-cooked our sunny-side-up eggs). Likewise, at check-out we were surprised to find-out that they charged us for drinks at the 6 PM daily social hour -- without notifying us when we ordered those drinks.

But here is my biggest issue with our stay at the Garden Inn: at about 6:30 AM one morning, just as I started jogging up the road, I was attacked by dogs at the house adjacent to Georges Grill
(http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g298424-d3838763-Reviews-Fire_Side_Inn_Georges_Grill-Boquete_Chiriqui_Province.html).

The 4 dogs surrounded me, and one of them (not the black dog) bit me on my calf -- though the bite wasn't deep.

I screamed at the dogs, and they temporarily gave me space while I slowly walked farther up the road. When I was out-of-range of the first group of dogs, I realized that there were more aggressive, barking dogs coming towards me farther up the road -- so I had to turn around and again go past the dogs at Georges Grill.

To prepare for the dogs, I found a large tree branch and picked-up 3 oranges along the side of the road. As I walked by Georges Grill, I used the tree branch to defend myself from the dogs, and beamed them with the oranges. I missed the dogs, but they kept their distance.

The moral of the story is that you can't jog up the road when staying at the Boquete Garden Inn...

There are no dogs on the premises of Boquete Garden Inn. As in the rest of Latin America, there are hundreds of dogs roaming the streets of Boquete. This unfortunate incident could happen anywhere and has nothing to do with the hotel.This is Panama, a different culture, we do not have animal control services, dogs are mostly unleashed.

The hotel has no control over things outside of our operation i.e.: dogs, roosters, people, climate and toilets clogging (there are plungers in all rooms).

We are not an all-inclusive hotel, but do give a healthy complimentary breakfast and complimentary drink each night at the bar. We make guests aware of our amenities upon arrival. This information is also available on our website, in our correspondence, and in the in-room guide book. I personally checked the guests reservation card and we did not charge them for the extra drinks, due to the misunderstanding.

The guests came to us through a travel agency and were probably not aware that the other two larger hotels they stayed at were some of the most expensive hotels in Bocas and Panama City—close to triple our rate.

No matter where you stay, it is always highly recommended to rent a car in Boquete, you will not have the same experience otherwise
