The price was obviously the only asset of the hotel.
The way we were welcomed was absolutely horrible: the receptionist didn't say hello or even smiled,he kept puffing and was even surprised to see us. It seems that you cannot run a hotel if you keep watching tv and talking to friends instead of checking your daily bookings. He had no ideas about a nearby tourist center. However a younger receptionist was in charge on the following day and was kinder and helpful. The was no ac or fans in the room. No breakfast as well.
The convient location and the grounds. The handymen were very friendly. The staff were willing but unsure of duties.Tthe basic room items needed had to be asked fo.r
The room floors were very slippery due to being damp.
The stream that went through the facility was the most attractive feature
Facility was poorly maintained. The service left a lot to be desired -- got better service at a Motel 6 The "rock" concerts on Thurs, Saturday nights disturbed our sleep to about 4 or 5am. Both nights there were loud people who conversed near our room. The second concert included a serious problem between some people that required the police to be called. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone But I would recommend Boquete as a destination as it is a very nice town to visit
(1) Lovely setting (2) Beautiful garden (3) Fresh air (4) There was a wonderful sound of falling water outside my room, & I slept better on my 2 nights here than on any other night on my 3.5 week trip ... (5) Close to town centre (could walk even with luggage)
I only ever saw one person working on reception, & he seemed a bit over-worked ...
No restaurant service No hot water!!!! for two days! Said they did not have adecuate water heaters if many rooms occupied. Furniture was bad or lacking. Bathroom was bad. Neither sink nor shower worked well even with cold water!
