We spent three nights at Isla Verde in Mariposa, an upper suite. It was beautiful, and so hard to leave when our stay was over.

The suite itself was great, kind of like a big studio apartment with windows everywhere. There was a small kitchen with a fridge, an oven, and a coffee maker, and a nice dining table to sit at. The bathroom was pristine. The bed was comfortable. There was a fan but no AC, but it got very cool at night and we didn't even need the fan.

We had a porch in the front of the suite and a beautiful balcony off the back that overlooked the gardens and the little river that goes through the property. We spent hours on the balcony with a cool drink, just listening to the river, enjoying the gardens, and watching the birds.

What is amazing is that Isla Verde is very close to town (only a couple of blocks to the main drag) but you would never know it. The river blocks any street noise, which is minimal in Boquete anyway.

The staff were great, and Sabine was very helpful and friendly. We had a hard time figuring out how to book our domestic flights online, so she booked them for us (even though we asked her very last-minute!) at no charge. She also gave us some good directions and information on things to do in the area.

We never had breakfast at Isla Verde, so I can't comment on that. We ate at Cafe Punto de Encuentro, which was great.

Boquete is great and I highly recommend Isla Verde!

Beautiful property....large clean cabins...good breakfast..the only negative was if you needed anything in the office/lobby, the door was always locked and we sensed it was an impposition for the staff if we knocked...other than that, the staff was helpful.

The reception of Isla Verde at the moment is also the private house of the owner. We do not want to annoy the guests. But as this the guest is treated more personally or more intensive because of being looked after directly.

We really enjoyed staying at Isla Verde, a perfect place, well maintained and clean. The architecture of the houses is wonderful and the breakfast place romantic. The staff is great and really takes care. Warmly recommended by Klaus & Birgit from Berlin / Germany

We stayed here in August for 5 days and can't recommend it highly enough. The location is perfect - quiet and you feel far away from the town, but the town center is no more than 5 minutes walk.

Sabine couldn't have been more helpful. She arranged a wonderful guild for a short hike (Feliciano), and other various activities. The laundry service was excellent, and I can't think of any negative points.

As to the people who complained about the Rottweiler, here's a picture of her. Every day she would come and push her nose on the door to call the kids to play.

The price was very reasonable, and six of us managed to fit quite comfortably in one of the roundhouses.

A great hotel in Boquete Panama that should be on everyone's radar. It is called Isla Verde. The place is owned by a German couple and they have done a wonderful job making a safe and beautiful place to visit.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of the main street in Boquete. The grounds are a beautiful Tropical Paradise with a small creek running through the property.

The Roundhouses are very nice and well equipped for a couple or a small group of friends at very reasonable prices. Each roundhouse has a kitchenette, private bath, loft and main floor. TV with cable is in each room as well. The rooms are very private and have thier own entrances.

You can opt for breakfast in the morning but this was the weak part of thier operation and we would recomend the coffee bar around the corner.

There are two dogs that live here that love to play fetch with the oranges that fall from the trees. They will give you a good laugh for sure and are well cared for.

Highly recomended.

Our suite (Girafa) was charming and beautiful -- perfect for honeymooners. I wish we could have stayed longer to make the most of the lovely kitchen. The nearby creek and beautiful landscaping makes the experience peaceful and calming. You can't beat this price in the U.S. I give this place an A+!

This place is such a serene paradise! The gardens are well kept with fruit trees everywhere. The river that runs behind it is amazing and a nice place to sit next to and read. There are lots of chairs all over the garden to sit and relax. The round houses are clean and well kept. Every detail is in place and the staff is friendly. The views of the mountains are amazing and you can walk to restaurants or stores.

When I arrived, the roundhouse I had reserved 3 weeks in advance was not available but the staff apologized and put me in a new suite facing the river. They had my roundhouse ready the next morning.

This place was truly amazing and I will be returning.
