“Don't even think of staying anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2009

Great property, very helpful and efficient staff,quiet and clean, has everything you might need. Owners work very hard to ensure everyone has a great stay. Only issue that some may have is that it is a twenty-twenty five minute walk to where the restaurants are. Rooms have kitchenettes, grounds are exquisite, complimentary beer/wine happy hour is a great plus as the layout of the bar promotes discussions with fellow travelers and meeting other people. Breakfast was just ok, nothing special, and served a bit late(8am-10am) as many people are out and about before then. No air conditioning but in general not needed. Staff will go out of their way to help with making plans for excursions, restaurants, things to do/see. Highly recommended for anyone traveling to Boquete!

My spouse and I spent a week in Panama and stayed at Boquete Garden Inn for three nights. The town has a lot to offer- outdoor activities, good food, central location- and the Boquete Garden Inn was a great place to stay while in this area of Panama.

The rooms are spacious and the gardens are beautiful and peaceful (just count how many birds you see each morning), but what makes the stay good are the people. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We loved the "happy hour" at the end of the day. It was a chance to meet other travellers and talk about what we did for the day. We always had dinner companions after the happy hour.

Our family just returned from a fabulous stay in Panama. We stayed at the Boquete Garden Inn for 3 nights. Jay, Danny and Danielle were helpful in so many ways. Our eldest daughter was determined to see a Quetzal during our stay. The staff helped us to secure the services of a guide, Chago, who we had read about in our guide books. It was a rather last minute booking. As we left, one of the staff members ran out with 4 granola bars to tide us over. We were very appreciative of those bars when our tour spanned a longer time period than we had originally expected. We were out with Chago from 11:30 - 4:30. Yes, we saw both a male and a female Quetzal - fantastic! The nightly happy hour in the Gazebo by the river is a fantastic way to meet other guests. The complimentary drink is a nice gesture as well. The complimentary breakfast is beautifully presented each morning. The staff also sets out fruit each morning for the birds who provide lovely scenery during the breakfast period. Jay and Susan have only owned the property since May and they have already made many improvements. Prior to our stay we had read that the rooms were a bit plain and uninteresting. Not anymore! We had originally planned to stay at Finca Lerida but were not able to reserve a room big enough for four. We ended up being very happy that we ended up at the Boquete Garden Inn. It was a perfect location. When we visited the land adjacent to Fince Lerida we realized that we would have felt a bit isolated in that location.

This place is quite the little gem.. We're so glad we went to Boquete and we're so glad we stayed at Boquete Garden Inn. This place gave us the best of both worlds. We got a really nice hotel, fantastic service, great looking room, cable tv (i know, i know. I was in nature but still wanted my tv before bed) and we got it all for a good price. Really good value here. Like the other reviewers said: make sure you go to happy hour. That Danny sure can mix a mean margarita and he's friendly to boot. Everybody there is helpful. Danny booked us on the coffee tour, a wildlife tour and gave us good restaurant recommendations. By the last night there, Boquete Garden Inn felt like home! (but greener and warmer!). My wife went crazy for all the flowers and I really liked watching all those birds. You get a good feeling when you're there. I would definitely recommend it.

Boquete Garden Inn is a true oasis. I wish the weather had cooperated with us so that we could have taken advantage of the beautiful, peaceful gardens. The Inn and staff are wonderful, happy hour was a great way to meet and share stories with other travellers, even if were were bundled up in sweaters and rain gear and trying to stay out of the howling wind! Our room was huge with a nice kitchenette area, comfortable bed with heavy comforter (thank goodness, we needed it), fresh flowers on the kitchen table and was very clean. Please note, there is only hot water in the shower. There is none to the bathroom faucet or the kitchen sink. I made do by microwaving a bowl of water to use in the bathroom sink or for washing cups in the kitchen. Due to so much rain, our room felt very damp and my clothes were damp when getting dressed in the morning. I did find out after the fact that some rooms had dehumidifiers, ours didn't but we certainly could have used one.

Absolutely fantastic. Even though it rained (heavy) almost everyday our time here defines vacation at its best. Jay, Danny, Daniel and the rest of the team fit like long time friends and added to the fun. Don't miss 'Happy Hour' great stories, indispensable tips and just plain fun. Have Danny or Daniel set you up for the Panama Zip line and add adrenaline to leisure. Rainbows in the morning, great friends in the evening - story book setting but could use a bit of hot wter in the kitchenette. Thanks Jay
