The Purple House is a nice place to stay. It's really clean (i worried a little because of other reviews and I can say that the place is clean and the dog is as clean as lovely!). The owner is from nyc so if you don't speak spanish, don't worry! It's not in the center but quite close. It's 3 blocks from a commercial area with a big supermarket. The team is friendly and helpfull. I would recommend it and stay there again.

Normally i say 'you pay what you get' but not here. Compared to other places i stayed at this is overpriced and i have stayed i a good few places in central america now and Panama.Pillow and mattress cover was far from clean. The place needs a new layer of paint. The lady who met us at arrival was a bit odd and short, maybe she had a bad day. Area felt safe to walk around in but not much atmosphere there either. WIFI was good though!

Just in David one night while in transit to Boquete. Owner was super friendly and helpful, providing information about David and area. Private room with bathroom was clean and comfortable although very hot as the fan was not very efficient (we could have paid an extra $5 for A/C but chose not too). Simple breakfast and coffee provided the following morning was a nice touch.
