    The amenities are obviously awesome. I was also surprised by the friendliness of the staff, and the standard of the hotel resturant. Try a meal here for half the price you'll pay downtown, you wont be disappointed!

    A thoroughly enjoyable stay. A bit out of the town centre but that works for me and they put a shuttle on twice a day. The place itself is stunning with amazing views from the terrace. I can’t praise it highly enough 👏👏👏

    Love this place. The jacuzzi and pool in the basement are perfect after a good day of hiking. The staff is super helpful and the food is great. The costs can creep up on you if you're not careful but that's on you too manage. Highly recommend!

    We stayed in the private 2-person rooms with a beautiful view of the surrounding area of Boquete. The room was comfortable and well-appointed & very clean. Available services, including meals, were easily accessed. Very comfortable location and I would recommend.
