In late June, my wife, two boys (17 & 15) and I spent 3 nights at Boquete Garden Inn. While the staff was friendly and the garden setting was nice, we had some issues.
First, the toilette in our room was "fragile". It backed-up twice, and the first back-up occurred in the evening after the hotel staff left the premises -- so we didn't have a plunger and consequently, we had to live with the flooded bathroom through the next morning.
Second, we were surprised that we had to pay for a simple egg breakfast (and they consistently over-cooked our sunny-side-up eggs). Likewise, at check-out we were surprised to find-out that they charged us for drinks at the 6 PM daily social hour -- without notifying us when we ordered those drinks.
But here is my biggest issue with our stay at the Garden Inn: at about 6:30 AM one morning, just as I started jogging up the road, I was attacked by dogs at the house adjacent to Georges Grill
The 4 dogs surrounded me, and one of them (not the black dog) bit me on my calf -- though the bite wasn't deep.
I screamed at the dogs, and they temporarily gave me space while I slowly walked farther up the road. When I was out-of-range of the first group of dogs, I realized that there were more aggressive, barking dogs coming towards me farther up the road -- so I had to turn around and again go past the dogs at Georges Grill.
To prepare for the dogs, I found a large tree branch and picked-up 3 oranges along the side of the road. As I walked by Georges Grill, I used the tree branch to defend myself from the dogs, and beamed them with the oranges. I missed the dogs, but they kept their distance.
The moral of the story is that you can't jog up the road when staying at the Boquete Garden Inn...
