Reviewed 11 May 2014

The hotel itself is a finca with 4 seperate apartments and an additional house. The rooms have nice bathrooms, queen-sice beds and aircondition, free wifi and a swimming pool out in the back with a stunning view. Every morning breakfast is made freshly for you as soon as you decide to go outside your room and take place at your table on your back-porch. Fresh fruits, spreads, meat, cheese, rolls and eggs in your style of choice is prepared for you. The couple running it is very friendly, outgoing and happy to help you wherever they can. They have good conections to all offered activities in the area (scuba diving, snorkeling, horse back riding, hiking, boat tours into the mangorves etc...) They speak German, English and Spanish. Also a very friendly Panaminan Woman helps out at the Finca who speaks Spanish and a little English.
Family dog is strolling around and happy to play with you - or to leave you alone, whatever your choice is:)
Very pleasant stay!

The Finca Buena Vista is just beautiful! The rooms are really nice. Each one has it's own terrace where breakfast is served in the morning. The breakfast is also amazing - for sure the best one we had during our whole 3 weeks Panama trip. And the owners Uwe and Berrit are so lovely!

The finca is on a hill with a great view! It has a small pool and a cozy relaxing area with a few canvas chairs. It's just a few minutes by car into town or a few dollars with a cab.

The best place I have stayed i Panama - rooms are nice, cosy and very clean - the view from the private patio is fantastic. I like to get up early - and I really enjoyed the scenary in the morning-light. And all the birds. You can see tucans just outside your room :-) The breakfast is the best I have had in a Bed & Breakfast - and I am not exaggerating. Try Uwes homemade liver paste - very tasty. One evening I had Uwes homemade gullasch for dinner - also very tasty. Finca Buena Vista is situated on the outskirts of the vilage Las Lajas. It is fun just to walk around and talk with the locals if yo know some spanish. Uwe was so kind driving my to the beach - perfect for long walks and wachting pelicans flying in formations.
Thank you Uwe and Berit - if I ever come back to Panama I would love to stay in your place again.
Kind regards Karen Marie, Denmark

On our way from Panaa city to Boquete, we stopped in Las Lajas to find a geocache wich, by hasard, was on the finca bellavista property. Upon our arrival, we we're welcome by the owners who invited us to look around. When we found the geocache, we decided to shorten our stay in bouquete on our way back to stop here and have our last night in this heaven.
We had a wonderful quiet time over there, the owners were so friendly and helped us t find a restaurant for super in a near Italian restaurant which was also paradise.
The next morning we had one of the best Desayuno of all our Panamean trip on the porch of our room with the song of the birds.
What else to say but BEAUTIFULL PARADISE

What a lovely find! The Finca Buena Vista is run by a German couple and has an intimate setting with only 4 rooms that are tastefully decorated. Each room has a wonderful view of the mountains and the valley. The breakfast was served on our private patio overlooking a bird feeder that was well attended by a variety of song birds. We were offered a combinations of eggs, deli meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt, juice, coffee, and fresh fruit. No one will leave hungry after this meal. The Finca is located just a few km from the Las Lajas Beach where one can spend the day at a resort for a reduced price.
One of the highlights of the stay at La Finca Buena Vista was being able to see so many birds from the property. Flocks of parrots flew overhead during the early morning hours and at sundown. We also got to see a pair of Tucans perched in the canopy trees behind our room.
As an extra convenience, the Finca offers a German goulash as a light meal for a small fee. A friend of our took advantage of this meal and stated that it was fantastic. We will definitely stay at this gem again on our future travels!!

By far one of the highlights of our holiday in Panama. By reading all other comments, it looks like everyone feels the same. Such a beautiful place with a wide view over reforested grasslands as we were told by Uwe the owner. The service Uwe and his wife provide is just stunning, they are always in for a chat and nothing is too much for them. Ask them for something and it is arranged in no time, like bus tickets, restaurant reservations, horse back riding etc. The breakfast is the most well prepared we had during our 18 day trip in Panama and we have been at quite a few lodges! Rooms at Buena Vista are specious, well kept clean and quiet. Great value for money and highly recommended, it exceeds expectations.
Thanks again Uwe and Berit!
Glueck auf.

What a delightful place! This charming B&B is fantastically set up in an idyllic setting overlooking the mountains. The owners have thought of every detail to ensure a pleasant experience: from a lovely decorated room and stocked mini fridge to a beautiful breakfast on the patio of your own room. Highly recommended!
