The Inn at Palo Alto

On a recent visit to Boquete my family and I stayed at the Inn at Palo Alto.  The rooms were super comfortable and very cozy.  A delicious breakfast was included and is served on an outside terrace complete with a fireplace. The breakfast was excellent and the terrace overlooks the river which runs through the back of the property. We stayed two days and we didn’t want to leave. Service was excellent and the rooms were very clean.  We will definitely return to this beautiful little oasis.

Sheraton Bijao Beach Resort Review

We arrived after a 2 hour drive from Panama City. The hotel grounds are nice and the beach is pretty. We arrived right at check-in time so there was a line of about 5 people ahead of us. The line moved very slowly! We were in line for at least 30 or 40 minutes. Our own check-in process did not take long but apparently a large group had arrived and their rooms were not ready, so we had to wait until they were all sorted out. There were only 2 clerks checking people in so the whole thing just dragged on.
The room was really basic but it was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. It had a really pretty view of the ocean and of the entire pool area. Continue reading “Sheraton Bijao Beach Resort Review”

Isla Verde: A Highland Beauty

Isla Verde is a boutique hotel in Boquete, Chiriqui which consists of cabins, cottages and guesthouses. This lovely hotel is surrounded by lovely zen like gardens filled with flowers and fruit trees.  It is only a short walk from the main street. Although it is right in the center of town, it is quiet and serenely peaceful. Each cabin has either a small kitchenette or a fully operating kitchen, complete with dishes and cookware. The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice continental breakfast is included in the cost.  I spent New Year’s Eve here with my family and my dog. We all had a wonderful time.  Go to the link below and check out their website.

PTY from the Sky

These beautiful views of the city’s skyline were taken from the 66th floor of the Trump Ocean Tower.  If you would like to experience this in person, visit the the Trump’s casino which is found on the 66th floor.  There is a lovely little bar at the entrance to the casino with a small infinity pool that overlooks the city.  The view is amazing and the members of the staff at the Trump Tower are very friendly and helpful.
