We stayed 4 nights in the queen room with a shared bathroom. Peter was a warm and welcoming host, and Marilin provided us with some lovely breakfasts - the biggest platefuls of fresh fruit I have ever seen! The garden is nice, with 2 white rabbits and a pair of tame parrots all hopping around freely, and they feed the wild birds so we saw some beautiful tanagers. It's on a quiet road with great views up above the town, although this caused us a few difficulties staying there without a car. Maybe it was because we stayed during carnaval, but the buses were so infrequent and unpredictable that it was not worth waiting for one. Taxis should only cost $2, but inexplicably for a country that is otherwise fairly efficient, all taxis in Panama are un-metered, so you have to stand in the street arguing with drivers about the price before you can go anywhere. It takes 45 minutes to walk down the hill into town, but it is an easy and scenic walk along a quiet road. Don't even think about walking back up from town! My other main gripe was the shared bathroom: the single cold tapped trickled constantly, and the shower alternated between ice cold and scalding hot water. The services of a plumber are badly needed. The two bedrooms we saw are in need of a fresh coat of paint, too. But overall we had an enjoyable stay with wonderful hosts. They even presented me with a big cake when it was my birthday!
