“It was OK....Would not come back however.”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

We did enjoy certain aspects of our 3 night stay. It was very relaxing after you got by the attack dog. Just don't go near her, keep on the path, don't look at her, and keep your hands up or in your pockets. The dog, the mosquitoes, and the fact that the bottom sheet did not fit the bed, everything else was good.. Pool was nice as was the breakfast. We had a really good room. Owners motorcycles were awesome. He was very personable. .

We stayed here for 3 days and LOVED it! There is a swimming pool, which was a treat. Axel, the owner is a great guy. Make sure to buy some of his organic shade grown coffee, it comes from his coffee farm and is excellent. The room was very clean and comfy. Hot, hot, hot water which is always a plus. 2 sets of windows make night sleeping very comfortable. Nice outdoor area with tables , which is where breakfast is served, makes a great place to have a cold beer and chat with fellow travelers. There is a toucan on the grounds... you can get right up close to it, a fun experience. Hope to return sometime again, thanks to this place we met some new friends we hope will come visit us. :) smiles and hugs --polly and chad

We stayed in Pensión Topás for two nights after having had a look at two other options. The first was the American-run Hostal Boquete. We found it very bad value for money. The rooms were expensive but tiny and very basic, and there was construction going on in the river bed right next to the hostel. We then had a look at Pensión Marilos which looked nice and was inexpensive, but they didn't have a room with a double bed available. German-run Pensión Topás was the quietest place we could find in about an hour's walk and I immediately liked the beautiful garden. They first showed us a quite basic room with shared bathroom (22 USD), then another cozy one with two windows and private bathroom which we chose (28 USD). The bed was comfy, the surrounding really quiet. They charged a couple of dollars extra for a good breakfast and there was free WiFi. I have no complaints. This place was exactly what we are looking for on our short trip to Boquete.

Despite the picture perfect grounds, the pension`s rooms seem to vary greatly in quality. Ours smelled and lacked window screens. On the other hand, the room in which our son stayed (top floor of the back building near the pool) seemed a lot better. This place could be perfect if greater attention were paid to appearances of cleanliness! Good breakfast, amiable host and cute toucan.

We stayed here for a week. They have a really nice garden. A good place to relax. The rooms a located in houses in the garden, not very modern, but clean and for the price just perfect value. You can have a really good breakfast in the morning for $6.-. The owner is german.

Agree with what two reviewers below state.
To add a little more- breakfast was $6 and included a boiled egg, some fruit, ham/cheese, butter, toast.
In a quiet area, about 10 minute close, safe walk to stores in town.
Does have a swimming pool we didn't try. A cool toucan there to take pictures and interact with.
I was part of a tour so not sure what the price was and cannot compare with other places in Boquete.
I set up the wireless router for the owner so you will now have WiFi free.
I would have liked to have had screens on the window and it would have been a comfortable nights sleep with the windows open. No screens so we were wary of mosquitos and kept them closed and it was warm.
