Nine months over the past two years. . .I know and highly recommend this well run hotel.

El Oasis, positioned in the heart of Boquete, Panama, sets the bar high as a premium facility with traveler friendly prices. The hotel has a country in feel and is nestled against the picturesque Caldera river and positioned for great views of the surrounding, coffee filled mountains.

Ownership is focused on delivering very high service levels and you will find them on the premises each day to ensure delivery of that quality experience for travelers. . .you can expect a great stay. The hotel staff is well trained with training includes third-party professional classes in providing excellent service levels. Recently, employees have attended special English language classes for hotel employees to deliver a better communication experience for hotel guests.

This hotel has a certain country inn elegance and comfortable feel and is complete with hand painted murals of local jungle flowers and outdoor scenes.

To deliver a great dining experience, there is a unique private dining gazebo with a beautiful fireplace for that romantic dinner occasion, or you can choose from either the large main dining room complete with a fireplace and edged with indoor flowers and live trees (perfect for meetings,) or, for evenings when the weather feels cool, there is a warm, white table cloth dining room too. There is also a large bar with a large projection TV, a historic boulder in the middle of the floor and fantastic wine list.

Not to be outdone by the beautiful dinner environment, breakfast is included with most room charges and is served in another area of the hotel. It comes complete with a beautiful jungle garden and you will be entertained by Panama´s rainbow colored finches fed fruit by the kitchen staff.

Suites are equipped with nice kitchens, an upstairs full bath with great hot showers and a lower level half bath. The suites have loft bedroom and a lower level futon and each level has its own balcony complete with chairs and table to have Panama´s great coffee and watch the phenomenal views. There are also many room configurations but the suites are my favorite.

Traveling in the third world can be difficult even if you are a back-packer. So if you are a family, a couple or a budget back-packer wanting a nice experience, this place has it all, and the best part is the fantastic staff always willing to help and prepared to make your stay in Boquete a great experience!

The town of Boquete is beautiful, up in the mountains, the air fresh and clean, plenty to see and appreciate. The hotel was very nice, clean. Fantastic location, our breakfast was outdoors where we could see all sorts of beautiful flowers and the birds coming to visit the birdfeeder a few feet away. It has a nice patio area where you can relax with a glass of wine.
The staff were very friendly. Would recommend it.

My room was dark NO sun light & no hot water in the shower. My room was dark & depressing. The only light came from cheap energy saving light bulbs.

We had originally booked 3 nights here however, due to the road blocks by the Indigenous peoples, we extended our stay to 5 nights. If ever I had to be stuck somewhere again, it would be here. We stayed in Suite 6, a wonderful suite for 2 with a full kitchen and private balcony. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful and sensitive to our plight. Marianela went out of her way to help us, no matter what time of day it was and with a smile.

Very well located, just a short 5 minute walk to book tours, 24 hour grocery store, market, cafés and restaurants.
We had lunch and a couple of dinners at the restaurant on site and and it was very good, medium priced dishes.

We also made good use of the commercial washer and dryer at 50¢ per load, since we travel light and wash our clothes frequently.

All in all, a great place to stay and would not hesitate to return.

ONE AMUSING NOTE: We noticed that the alarm clock is crazy glued to the night table however, the in room electronic safe is not bolted down and is light enough to carry out. Needless to say, we preferred keeping our valuables on us!

Room Tip: Our suite was well worth the price and gave us the freedom to just stay in for a few quiet dinners "at home"

El Oasis is four blocks from the central plaza, across the river. The room was a reasonable size and clean. The meals are excellent! We eat all our meals here as there was no reason to go exploring elsewhere in town. (We stayed here 4 days). The breakfasts had fresh fruit, pancakes, french toast or eggs and bacon. A big bonus for breakfast is that you can watch 6-10 different multi-colored birds visit the stone bird feeder as you eat breakfast. There is a partially enclosed gazebo with a fireplace which they light in the evenings to protect you from the cool and sometimes misty rain that occurs as different cloud systems pass through. The only drawback that we experienced was only two television channels (3 and 23) so we read instead. There is a balcony where you can read and look out over the river to the downtown. While we were there, we saw tango lessons in the bar area and women dressed up for their dinner out on the town. The internet connection is excellent as we could watch live streaming curling from Alberta, Canada. (We are Canadians snowbirds). There are also longer term apartments for rent above the daily room rentals. This is a very good choice for Boquete.
