Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

The Garden Suite is a 10 minute drive from downtown Boquete with the village center a 15 minute hike downhill. This gorgeous room has a private bathroom and a small sitting room. The breakfast is local, fresh, organic when possible, delicious.

The Garden Suite is an airy room beautifully appointed with hand crafted wood closets and French doors that open to lush gardens. There is a small sitting room with a television and DVD player. Through the arched window and full light glass French doors, there are beautiful gardens and huge bananas trees. The Garden Suite has linen curtains, plush towels, sheets and comforter for the queen size bed, loads of space to store your things for a long stay and a large bathroom. The Garden Suite is adjacent to The Breakfast Lounge where we serve breakfast every morning. Internet can be spotty in The Garden Suite but is available in The Breakfast Lounge. The French doors open onto a private patio with orchids, bromeliads and succulent to enjoy at your leisure.

The Breakfast Lounge

The Breakfast Lounge is located adjacent to The Garden Suite and The Terrace Bedroom. There is a small wood dining room table perfect for 4, a couch, book cases, coffee table and breakfast station. We provide yoga mats, board games, a lending library and many DVD’s to make your stay more enjoyable.

We bring breakfast each morning on platters and guest serve themselves using dishes, silverware and glassware stored here for guest use. We provide tea, fruit and a French press for coffee.

Guest Access

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 Bouquet. 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.

Interaction with Guests

We open our home to families every year so we can share these beautiful rooms and our gardens with those who wish to appreciate the beauty of the Central American climate, food, people and the extraordinary natural beauty. We love Boquete and have wandered all over the area and we are excited to share our experiences with you. Let us help you with airport pick-ups in David, car rental information in David or Boquete, local guides who can show you the wonders of the area or directions to local hikes if you are adventurous and prefer to make your own way.

About Ciella Gabriel, owner

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.

Ciella Gabriel, owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Ciella Gabriel, owner chose Panama

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Ciella and Quincy are perfect hosts

  • 4 of 5

We prefer the terrace suite over the garden suite, because the bed is harder and the shower has more hot water. Also the internet is better. Keep in mind that the bathroom in the terrace suite is not ensuite.The house of Ciella and Quincy is very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is good and the hosts are very nice and helpfull. There is no cable tv and we didn't miss it at all, but you have lots of movies on DVD's that you can watch. It was our fourth time in Boquete before we discovered this place and I can honestly say that we finally have found a nice, quiet place that is not old and overpriced. You get excellent value for your money!

Owner's Response: When you arrive you receive a local cell phone for your use. We supply a list of taxi drivers who know where The Hacienda is located. We can also arrange a ride for you. Many of our guests join us when we take our almost daily excursions into town. A car brings more flexibility though many of our guests prefer the freedom of walking or taking a taxi. About $6 a ride, not per person.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I decided to take an exploratory trip to Boquete for two weeks. We found "The Hacienda" and it's great reviews. It seemed to be a nice place to stay from the pictures and reviews. We decided to give it a go and it was everything we hoped for and so much more. First, the property. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Plants and flowers all around, flowing streams, beautiful view of Volcan Baru. Just beautiful.

Now to the owners. Quincy and Ciella really made our stay a memorable one. They were everything you could ask for as hosts. They were genuine, friendly, humble, helpful, knowledgeable and compassionate. They gave us a LOT of great information on the Panamanian culture and on Boquete. GREAT hosts.

Quincy and Ciella made sure we were comfortable in every aspect of our stay. There was not anything we could do without. They really thought of everything. They work really hard to make sure everything is taken care of. From the property grounds down to breakfast.

Breakfast was very good. Delicious actually. Panamanian produce is very fresh so breakfast was very flavorful. Some of our choices included scrambled eggs, quiche, fresh fruit and yogurt with some killer Panamanian coffee.

As a word of caution, if you decide to rent a car, you need to listen to directions carefully. The Hacienda is up on the mountain, so you will have to drive up a gravel road. Just look for the "The Hacienda" signs and you'll get there.

We highly recommend this property for your stay. We liked it so much we cut our trip to Volcan from 5 days, down to 2 and spent more time at The Hacienda.
