Each morning breakfast is brought to The Breakfast Lounge at a pre-arranged time from 7:00am to 9:00am. You can take your breakfast at the dining table in The Breakfast Lounge or fill your plate and take it to your room or to one of the lovely spaces outside in the gardens. A lovely array of local, fresh tropical fruit starts each day. (papaya, bananas and pineapple). We have fresh yogurt, a variety of breads, muffins and sweet breads. There is creamy butter and jellies for the breads. Each day varies. There can be whole hot oats with brown sugar, raisins and nuts, cold cereals, egg dishes or waffles. On reservation we inquire of each guest what they prefer to eat. If you are leaving extra early on an outing, we can make a breakfast To Go that will be in refrigerator waiting for you as leave in the morning.
The grounds of the Hacienda are open for guests to wander. We have a small exercise area with a treadmill, stair stepper and weight bench. There are yoga mats in The Breakfast Lounge and we urge you to keep to your normal practice or to start a new routine while enjoying your stay. We have many areas specifically created for reflection surrounded by the extraordinary beauty that abounds in Boquete. There is a mixture of banana plantation, wild jungle and planned garden beds. There are the inevitable suns framing special nooks throughout the property. Colorful concrete benches, comfortable outside furniture, couches, swings and hammocks are discovered as you investigate the grounds. Walk down the colorful steps to the stream area where jungle abundance surrounds you. In certain seasons the small stream becomes a trickle but the path it cuts into the banana jungle is always peaceful and prefect for sharing long conversations, reading that great book or simply sitting in quiet contemplation.

I am an avid gardener and The Hacienda gives me to opportunity to indulge in my favorite activity while creating a lovely space for guests to rest and relax. My husband personally observed every detail of construction and renovation of this entire property. He and I love to boogie board, hike and enjoy wonderful fresh organic food. We love hosting travelers from all over the world. We love Boquete and its amazing people, culture and beauty. We have lived here for over 10 wonderful years.

The Hacienda B and B and Casita are uniquely situated in an area where manicured gardens, wild jungle fauna and banana forest collide. We are 10 minutes by car or a 20 minute hike from village center but the area feels secluded and very private.
It is not in a typical development but a bit wild and untamed. We have well over 100 banana trees and 5 different variety of bananas. We have lived here for 10 years and really know the area well and are very willing to assist our guests. We are here to serve your needs.
The Hacienda has extraordinary peace and serenity in a glorious garden setting. All rooms are decorated beautifully with luxurious sheets and towels. It is cozy and beautiful with owners who live right on the premises and love hosting guests from all over the world. Hike, take tours and play all day and then come home to The Hacienda and enjoy a great nights rest on a very comfortable mattress.
Quincy and Ciella were amazing hosts, breakfast was amazing. Coffee, tea and water available all day. Our privacy was completely respected. The room was exactly as the picture shows, the bed was comfortable. Spent hours just in the terrace watching all the different birds. Our hike into town was delightful, we just grabbed a taxi back as it was a long hike uphill. We had a bit of trouble when going outside of the town area, as there was no phone service there. You need to either arrange with your taxi driver a time to pick you up, or perhaps just rent a car for a day or two. Quincy and Ciella can arrange that for you, it does not appear to be expensive and gives you more freedom. All in all we would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a quiet location and particularly bird lovers! Thank you again Ciella and Quincy, we hope to meet again!
I stayed 12 days at the Hacienda this Feb. 7 days in the Garden Suite, 5 days in the Casita. Last year I stayed in the Terrace Bedroom and all are very comfortable. The property is a 10 minute drive from Boquete or a $5 cab ride. You can walk down in 20 minutes via short cuts. The garden suite & terrace bedroom are both in the main house with private outdoor seating areas. There is a large common where a very good breakfast is served. Water, coffee & tea are always available. There is a small refrigerator for guest use. The casita is a stand alone, complete efficiency apartment with 2 private terraces. Free wifi is available in both the main house & casita. The grounds on the property are very lush with jungle flora. Walkways and benches enhance the experience. A hiking trail starts just up the hill.
Above & beyond all this is Quincy & Ciella. You will be very impressed with all they do for their guests. Everything from umbrella's to flashlights, maps, etc. are available to use. Guests are even provided with a local cell phone with trusted cab driver's numbers and Quincy & Ciella's numbers programmed into the phone. Printed directions to the property in Spanish are provided so any cab driver can bring you back from town. Quincy & Ciella have been in Boquete for over 10 years. Both are very knowledgeable and respected by locals and other businesses in Boquete. Their help will make your stay very enjoyable.
My wife and I stayed for four nights at The Hacienda and purely enjoyed it. The location is great, close enough to town for access but far enough for great bird-watching, sunsets/rises and quiet nights. Ciella and Quincy were the best, providing great maps, directions and feedback on local activities and locations. The breakfasts were always fantastic and our room and the common areas were welcoming and comfortable. I would recommend The Hacienda to anyone and everyone and we understand now why many of the guests are returning multiple times. We were glad to have a car but it is not necessary, as the cab service in Boquete is easy and inexpensive. We both hope to return soon!!
Loved our stay at the Hacienda! The hosts our absutely amazing, they will help you with anything you need, and they make delicious breakfast. The bed and breakfast is beautiful and comfortable. Great view of Boquete and Baru volcano. Taxi ride is about 6$-10$ to get up to the bed and breakfast or a 15-20 min walk up, it's a steep hike. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again.
Hosts, gardens,food,convenience,general relaxing atmosphere wonderful. Road is a challenge for some people. Do recommend that bath robes be provided for people having to walk across the living room to get to their private bathroom , a nuisance to have to get dressed to get to the bathroom.
The pictures don't do it justice. Absolutely lovely. Comfy room, delicious breakfast and friendly hosts. My only advice is that I think the location is better suited for those with a car. Taking a taxi to and from each day can add up especially if you don't want to have to leave the property and stay out for the entire day. It is possible to walk but it's an incredibly steep and challenging climb. Our host did provide us with a cell phone and a list of reliable taxi drivers to call which was very helpful. I would absolutely recommend Ciella and Quincy's beautiful B&B.
