  • Everything I hoped for!

    "I just got back from a fantastic Panama Vacation! The 4 day stay at Bluff Beach Resort could not have been any more enjoyable! My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in the secluded Las Palmas Casita and 2 nights in the main beach house Las Olas master bedroom. If you prefer to be a little isolated away from the main house, then Las Palmas is the way to go. There is no AC in any of the rooms but you really don’t need it with the nice ocean breezes and fans. The sounds of the jungle mixed with the waves crashing on the shore were just surreal. The property is gorgeous and fits so naturally in the surroundings. I especially love the how the paths were lit during the night. It gave such a magical walk through the tropical vegetation. A beautiful, quiet beach is just steps away from the front of the property. On the way back from the beach, I showered outside and took a dip it their fantastic pool then sipped cool drinks with fresh limes from their farm under the thatched umbrellas. We also took an afternoon ride on the horses that were available. The horses were beautiful and well behaved. The guide was very considerate of my girlfriend who had never ridden a horse. We stopped for a refreshing dip at a beautiful secluded spot on the far side of the island. On the way back our guide even pointed out a monkey in a tree that we would have never seen! The inn keepers, Steve and Karen, really made a huge impression on me. I have stayed at other B&B in the past but Steve and Karen stand out as the best! I felt more like family than a guest. They went above and beyond hospitality by picking us up at the airport, taking us shopping, arranging local tours and taxis, and offering rides when going into town. They were always willing to share their abundant knowledge of the area with stories that entertain as well as inform. Steve even got up in the middle of the night to help a stranded Taxi driver that was stuck in the sand on the only road on our side of the island. I was also very impressed with how respectful they spoke and interacted with the local workers, who did not speak English. You can tell how everyone loved their jobs by how clean and well maintained the property is. Needless to say, they are just wonderful people that will make sure you enjoy this beautiful place."

  • Incredible place!

    "We not only loved the place, we made a new friend (well, actually lots of them - not just Sandi but her pets and all of the Monkeys, birds, Iguanas, etc.). We loved being so close to the Rain Forest. We watched "Iggy" the Iguana climb the 30 foot tall avocado tree to eat avocados, there were butterflies and humming birds everywhere. Monkeys to watch every day, right in the back yard. Fantastic! Sandi has great dogs that we loved and even a cat that stayed right outside our door and was the friendliest cat I've ever met. The location was perfect. Close enough to town to make it really easy to get back and forth but not so close that you hear any of the music or parties plus close to beaches. Right between the water and the rain forest. How can you top that? Sandi started our stay by taking us to the only Irish Bar in town for St. Patrick's day and introducing us to some of her great friends. people that could give us some great insight into the area. We then went exploring on our own and had a ball. Sandi sent us to some good places to get dinner and to buy local groceries. She also arranged some great trips with people she knew (which helped a lot because when someone takes you to an island and says that they will come back and pick you up at 4 pm - you really hope that happens, and it did! He was there ten minutes early). I would recommend Sandi and her place to my closest friends, with no hesitation, the way that she built the house is genius, with her living in the upstairs and two one bedroom apartments below. We had plenty of room to relax, a full kitchen with pans, dishes, etc. and an air conditioned bedroom. We are thinking about retiring in Panama and if we are able to pull that off, we will definitely spend more time with our new friend, Sandi."

  • A slice of paradise!

    "We stayed for three nights during the last week of December 2015 at his FANTASTIC condo . It was the best condo rental we have ever had. The view of the hidden valley of Bouquete, lush green & spectacular surroundings, fabulous living & bedrooms with classy decor, all appliances and cooking utensils, spacious layout of the property...all added to our pleasant stay there. Barbara (owner) was prompt and caring in making sure the booking and follow-up details went smooth. Gloria, the care taker, was actually waiting for us in the town to take us to the condo. Overall, it was an excellent experience to stay and explore everything Bouquete has to offer. Thanks Barbara, for sharing with us your slice of paradise. Thanks Gloria for taking care of everything."

  • PARADISE!!!!!!!

    "We have been fortunate to travel and see many places, but Vista Azul beats most. The house is spectacular, the architecture wonderful, very nice layout, each room and bathroom very good. All kinds of details present: interesting books to read, movies, amount of towels, beach chairs, etc. The truth is that we had exceeded expectations through the pictures we had seen. Do not forget to try the food Martha! Armodio thank you very much for your concern to every detail and make us feel always safe. The best person to do the rides is CHOY. You should ask for it, always with the best intentions, very gentleman. Very important!!! as Vista Azul is located on the beach and in the woods, mosquitoes are something to consider. Bring a lot of repellent While there are always details that enhance (washer never worked, some air conditioners in poor condition, cleanliness was not the best), the place, the house, climate, etc. They managed to be the best holiday we have had as a family."
