This hotel is spectacularly beautiful, with flowers and colorful birds abound. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and a great assortment of soaps, lotions and shampoos were provided. the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean with hardwood floors and reasonably spacious, and we enjoyed relaxing on the large hammock in front of the room. As far as the rooms go, the only downside is that the walls are pretty thin; fortunately we had considerate neighbors, but I can see that this could be an issue if the hotel is crowded and you have someone in the rooms on either side of you (we were in one of the older rooms up on the hill near the bar area), perhaps the newer rooms near the restaurant are better). There are trails to go on a nature walk for bird watching or relaxation right outside of the rooms. The hotel is about a $7 cab ride from town, which is not a big deal other than that you really need to plan ahead if you are going elsewhere for dinner, because the cabs are sparse in the evenings and you have to have your restaurant call ahead (the later you dine, the longer the wait for a cab, as Boquete is early to rise so there aren't a lot of cabbies working after dinner).
The restaurant, Monniche, warrants its own review, as it was the best place in town (and we ate at several of the top restaurants in Boquete). The banana pancakes at breakfast were to die for, and the coffee was the best on our trip. Other standouts for lunch and dinner included the trout salad, the whole trout (dinner entree), the fresh & fried ceviche, and the tomato soup. We got some of the coffee to bring home with us from the cafe in the hotel reception. They did not have a tasting available of the different roasts, but they did have a good selection to buy as beans (we went on a coffee tour elsewhere).
