“Excellent, cosy place”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We spent 2 nights at Cielito Sur as part of a 2-week trip in Panama. We were absolutely satisfied with what we received, including a cosy room, delicious home-made breakfast, useful briefing upon arrival and much hospitality in general. We can only recommend Cielito Sur for shorter or longer stays in the area. An additional advantage is that the Volcán/Cerro Punta area is much less touristy and crowded than Boquete, while it offers almost the same amount of activities and, in our opinion, prettier landscape.

Cielito Sur was just pefect. We spent 10 glorious days watching the hummingbirds and justvenjoying ourselves. Janet and Glenn have created a paradise---and we were lucky enough to share it. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, it's very quiet, and they have all the added touches (flowers, chocolates, fast internet) just right. We will come back.

Cielito Sur is in a very quiet setting, surrounded by nature, including hummingbirds galore. We spent two nights there and although it was New Year's Eve in a country which doesn't need any excuse to party, we slept very well. We were in the spacious and clean Kuna Room which had dozens of molas. There is also a large community room with books, games, and a computer to use. We were able to access the internet in our room, though. The second night there were hibiscus flowers and a Hershey's kiss on our pillows. The owner's make delicious breakfasts, grow and serve their own coffee, and provide information and advice. We were told where to see quetzales, on my bucket list, and lo and behold we did! Thank you!

Stayed here 2 nights in August---beautiful grounds, lots of birds, great home made breakfasts using coffee, jams, yogurt, eggs all from their property. The hosts, Janet and Glen were excellent giving us tips on what to do locally as far as hiking, food, etc. We stayed at two other locations during our trip and this was easily the best. Rooms were comfortable, clean and nicely decorated.

Spaciously roomed B&B with good common areas located in pretty gardens. Good breakfast with many hummingbirds outside windows. Can be cold at night although heaters are provided. However, it is overpriced in our view and the pillows could with renewing. A car is essential.

There are only 4 rooms available but if you have a chance to stay here you wont regret it. If you have an extra day to spend somewhere and can't decide where this is the place. Janet & Glenn have created a paradise here with great attention to detail everywhere you look. Beautiful spacious rooms, great personally made breakfast overlooking a great garden with hummingbirds buzzing all over the place. Lovely seating areas, beautiful common areas, well stocked library and videos. If you want a place to chill - this is number one on my list.

Glen and Janet set the standard for hospitality a their B&B the rooms are well appointed with a refrigerator, a coffee pot and coffee from their coffee trees, a microwave and little things like two hooks to hang cloths on in the bath.

Beautiful garden with lots of humming birds every where.

A different breakfast every day with Glen and Janet keeping you company with interesting stories about Panama, and a wonderful library in the breakfast room.

Two thumbs way up for Cielito Sur.
