El Oasis Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #7 of 12 Hotels in Boquete
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 April 2012

We have stayed at El Oasis Hotel many times in the past 4 years including one extended stay for several months in a suite with 2 balconies overlooking the river and the town. We have also eaten at the restaurant dozens of times. We most recently returned to El Oasis in March 2012 for a 4 night stay in one of the hotel rooms. The hotel staff are very nice people who are all long term employees and they take excellent care of the hotel and the grounds. Several of the staff speak English as do all of the managers. The restaurant is excellent and many ex-pats go there frequently because of the food, ambience, and to see friends. The restaurant is downstairs below the hotel along with a bar and manager Colixto is a great guy who provides excellent service and runs his operation well. Rooms include a good breakfast served at the front of the hotel in front of the owners residence and the hotel offices and there is a beautiful garden between the patio and the road which makes for a very enjoyable morning setting. There is also a walkway with gardens at the back of the hotel along the river and the restaurant has a covered garden as well as fireplaces. The parking is secured at night by a locked gate. Internet is included and there are computers to use. You will be staying directly across the river from the town and beside the bridge so it is less than 5 minutes to coffee shops, restaurants, the market, the grocery stores, and you are right beside the Expat theater and the Feria which are the famous gardens of the flower festival. Cabs to anywhere in town are 50 cents to a dollar. The hotel owner Anayansi is a delightful lady who is a big contributor to the Boquete community and a supporter of many ex-pat events and organizations. She is also on the new Library Board of Directors. We are from Calgary Alberta and we recommend hotel El Oasis without reservation. If you are flying or busing to David take the Boquete school bus from the David bus station for about $1.50 to Boquete and get off by the town square and walk a block over the bridge then turn right to the hotel. Most people you pass by will wish you buenos dias if you acknowledge them along the way on the sidewalk! Or take a taxi for about $20.00 from David which is very fair. It will all be a great experience for you and you will be treated very well. Enjoy Boquete and El Oasis as they are both wonderful in our experience.

Located on the otherside of the river from town, El Oasis is a nice affordable hotel with lots of charm. The food in the restaurant was a little pricey but delicious. The room we stayed in was small but had a nice view of the town. Would stay here again!

We haven't stayed here yet, we really want to, but I need to say that I have never worked with someone as helpful as Marianela in booking reservations. We contacted several hotels in the area, some didn't get back to us, others were slow and not helpful. Marianela always returned emails quickly and graciously! Thank you Marianela, we can't wait to stay at your lovely hotel!!

Great place. We stayed in one of the suites, so we could cook and not eat out all the time. Rooms were nice. It is on the banks of the river with a great view of the area. It is just 3 or 4 minutes walking to town. They have a really nice patio/dining area to relax in the afternoon. The staff was very friendly. I would stay there again no questions asked.

Room Tip: Suite 5 had a great view of the river and town.

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.
