Paradise in a 3rd world setting

Posted Apr 28, 2017 on Hotels
Beautiful place. There were some problems with the room and they FIXED them that same day. Sliding glass door didn't lock, t.v. wasn't working, toilet was running, light wasn't working, and they FIXED them all VERY quickly. Very impressive. The hot water takes a long time to get HOT but it does after 5 or 10 minutes of running. The restaurant is a beautiful romantic TENT setting with a stream running next to it. The food is REALLY good. The service is good but the food is slow in coming. Panama timing! But who cares when the surroundings are so lovely! The wifi went out a few times and slowed WAY down a few times. Nothing serious just annoying. No fridge in the room. That would have been handy. The pool and work out area are FABULOUS!!!! HUGE!! Lots of big free weights! Everything you would ever want or need to WORK OUT! The floor around the pool is tiled and VERY SLIPPERY!!! VERY!!! Get a manicure or pedicure!! RELAXING.. NO music.. just the sound of the running water next to the small building.. one person at a time.. QUIET!!! Beautiful! Would love to spend more than 10 days here... anytime!!! Easy to get a taxi. Or walk the short way to downtown Boquete, Panama. Big Daddy's Grill for fun food. Sugar & Spice for lunch and tea. Morton’s Bakehouse at the San Fransisco Plaza is a MUST for FRESH beautiful bread! Right next door is The Garden Restaurant and Country Store in the Plaza. It has a wholesome twenty-five plus item salad bar. Re Pomodoro for Pizza.

It is a lovely property, with a stream and gardens

Posted Feb 15, 2017
Pros: Rooms were top notch, large, clean and comfortable.
Cons: It would have been nice to have had a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room.
Location: Boquete is a lovely location. We were there for the annual Jazz & Blues Festival that was held on the resort grounds. Coffee tours are nearby.
We were accommodated at check in when we were not pleased with 2 twin beds in the room. They changed us into a room with a king bed. We booked a couples massage at the Spa which I felt was a bit below what I have received elsewhere, but was satisfactory. Breakfast was included and the buffet was nice, but not outstanding. It was difficult to find a nice cup of coffee in the evening which was a bit surprising. With all of the above on the table, I would still recommend this hotel to friends. Pluses outweighed the minus, and I only mention the negatives in a constructive manner.

Property's starting to get a little run down- the room felt dark and cold. The staff is amazing and I enjoyed the area- close to town.

Loud music

Posted Jan 18, 2016
Expected peace and quiet and a swimming pool. The pool was covered with a temporary floor and the area was used for a private party,so it was not available to us. The music from the party was extremely loud and did not stop until 2 AM. Staff was great. Never stayed at a hotel that let one group of people disturb the other guests like this one did.

Paradise nestled in the mounatains

Posted Jan 9, 2016 on Hotels
Valle Escondido is paradise nestled in a mountain canyon. The property was originally a coffee plantation that now offers a restful experience for the mind and body. The fresh mountain air of Boquete greets you as you arrive. We stayed in a riverside Bungalow, which was just perfect for my family of four. We enjoyed lounging on the patio or in the hammock taking in the sights and sounds of our own backyard full of flowers, tropical birds and papaya trees. While the restaurant offered a wide variety of healthy meals and refreshing juices, we found the service to be slow. We also had a hiccup with our in-room safe when the batteries ran out and we were unable to retrieve our passports. The front desk was helpful in solving the problem, but they were slow in responding, which almost made us miss our bus. The spa and gym were very nice, but we missed out on a massage as appointments were not available. Overall the resort is beautiful and the people of Boquete are wonderful.

Great place to relax and rest!

Posted Sep 1, 2015
Pros: The scenery and the peacefulness.
Cons: I would not change a thing. Maybe eat more cookies!
Location: We went on excursions by Safari Boquette. The horse back riding was amazing, up to the top of the mountain and back down. Also white water rafting.
I found our room and experience just wonderful. Outside our room was a little river so all night we heard the water rushing and the sounds of the night for very pleasant sleeping. The food over exceeded our expectations. Chef Chris was so attentive to us coming out and making us feel welcome. Many vegys are grown at the resort. The ground were expertly kept with beautiful flowers everywhere you look. This place is nestled in the valley of some small mountains. Two pools one cool outdoors, one heated indoors. Hot tub. Walking paths. Exercise classes. Spa. There was even a little chapel. I would definitely go back there in the future!
