I'm back in Boquete and this time decided to stay at the sister hotel to Hotel Palo Alto. I was not disappointed. This hotel is in town and owned/run by the son of the people who run Hotel Palo Alto. Its right in town within walking distance to everything. The rooms were clean, nice and had everything I might need. The bed was very comfortable which is alway good after a long day exploring the area. Wifi and American TV which to me is aways important is available. The owner is on hand to answer anything you might want to know about or do in the area. A few meals I even decided to stay in my room and cook my own meals so the functional kitchen really came in handy.

This is a newly renovated apartment building with an American owner. If you are looking to enjoy modern amenities in the quiet town of Boquete, this is your home away from home. Located 10 minutes within walking distance from the center of town. There is a store for snacks and drink purchase about two minutes away on foot. Then you have a few restaurants within walking distance on the same road as the hotel. I felt very comfortable and safe here both night and day. The apartment came with a kitchen with stove( two burners) and microwave plus nice sized refrigerator. Dishes were also supplied. The bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, and bathroom with shower (including hot water). The WiFi worked consistently and there was great cable with many American channels so you can enjoy nights at home watching movies or sports and keep up on current events in English. The housekeeping was around daily to attend to my needs. The also can help you book tours and taxis as needed during your stay. This place was very modern and I highly recommended for vacationers not on a strict budget. I could also see it as a nice honeymoon spot.
However you arrive in Boquete (i.e. via taxi or transport)on the weekend (Saturday or Sunday) or in the night, you may want to call first so someone is there to greet you at the apartment. Happy Travels!!!

I was pleasantly surprised when I was let in the room. You first walk into a living area with a modified kitchen. I think the couch is also a futon that can sleep a 3rd person easily. The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans for the portable stove-top, utensils etc- there was even coffee and tea. The large fridge was also useful. The bedroom is separated from the main room by a door and there is an open closet and also a safe. There is a second door off the bedroom that leads to the backyard area and gazebo. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean with plenty of towel provided- the water pressure and hot water felt great after long hikes. Justin was very personable, and answered all of our questions about tours. The value we got for three nights was really unbeatable for the quality of these accommodations. It is located on a side street minutes walk from the main downtown area.
The only two negatives were: lack of signage and dish area. So before you go, make sure you have an exact address and look at a picture of the building so you know what to look for. This place previously operated under a different name (and different owner I assume) and some people were not familiar when I mentioned "Downtown Suites".

Secondly, though the living space was clean, the dishes in the dish rack were not. A few plates and utensils had food stains, just obviously unwashed. All the mugs were used and not washed there were dried coffee spots inside multiple mugs even though they hung on the mug rack. The previous occupants may have put the there and they weren't rechecked. Also the sponge that was provided for washing dishes was very tattered and falling apart

Really those are small things compared the kind of place and service you get. The location is key especially if you have not rented a car and or want o set up different tours with Justin or around town. If you have rented a car you can park right in front of your room. It's super convenient without the noise of town and located just around the corner from Sugar and Spice bakery! An especially good base for a longer stay.

Good, comfortable place to stay. Clean and spacious. Very good value for money. Owner very personable and helpful. Rooms in a good position. Recommended. This is NOT one of the over-priced dumps found throughout Central America.

Excellent staff, accommodations and a central location. They were very helpful and engaging and fluent in English, which was very helpful. The rooms were like new and the bed and pillows were better than I have at home.
I highly recommend a stay there and I'll be back, that's for sure!
