My boyfriend and I just spent a wonderful 3 nights at the Boquete Garden Inn and it was fantastic. I knew from the reviews and pictures that I had seen beforehand that it was going to be wonderful but I never expected the staff to be so lovely and helpful. Robert really couldn't do enough for us, he was always happy and cheerful and genuinely seems to really love his job. The owners Jason and Susan were also really lovely. We didn't get to meet Susan as she was away at the time but even before we stayed I got a number of emails from her offering helpful information about the area and what we could do during our time there. Jason was always happy to sit and have a chat, and suggested some great restaurants (he even drove us there!). There was another day when we were walking back to the hotel and he drove passed us and picked us up on the way.
The room itself was perfect, it was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and I would happily spend all day sat outside watching all of the wildlife come into the garden to eat the fruit that they had put out for them. The social hour on an evening is just a brilliant idea, we met so many lovely people who told us all about the things they had done each day and we all shared good restaurants to go to and tours to go on. We ended up going out for dinner with one couple we met here, and another person we met kindly offered us a lift to Panama City instead of us having to take an 8 hour bus!!
The hotel staff will organise all of your tours for you, and will even pack you up a breakfast if you have an early start (we didn't even have to ask for this they just put it in our room ready for us). We went horseback riding to the hot springs, and they even gave us old towels to take with us so we didn't need to use our own, they really do think of everything.
The breakfast is lovely and couldn't be eaten in a more realxed and beautiful setting. Although the Garden Inn is not in the centre, it's only a ten minute walk which we actually really enjoyed. On days where we did get a taxi it was never more than $3 per journey which is about £1.80. I would definitiely return to Boquete again, and would always stay at this hotel, Jason and Susan have done wonders with the place. Jason told me that it held some sort of magic for him even before they took it on and you really can feel it.
I would recommend anyone travelling to Boquete to stay here, you won't regret it.
