“Why would you stay anywhere else?!”
Reviewed 29 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

First off, why would you visit Boquete and stay in a hotel?! Alba Verde is better than home away from home. Mary has decorated the place perfectly. It is roomy and cozy at the same time. And Mary is awesome! She is most helpful and very knowledgeable about Boquete. Make sure you book a few days and enjoy being home away from home!

Bye Boone!

“Highly recommend!!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

There is so much to say about our stay about Alba Verde and our fabulous hostess, Mary Ellen. The area is stunning and cared for with love. Our casita was very comfortable and clean with a great advantage of having a neighbor who does the BEST massages. Getting around town is so easy and very reasonable. Mary Ellen is a walking Zagat with her information on the wonderful local places to eat. We hiked daily and the people we met were so friendly. We will definitely come back!!

“The serenity at Alba Verde was beyond description”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was our third trip to Panama and Boquete, and the best trip ever. We stayed at Alba Verde for 12 nights. While Mary Ellen, the owner, described her rental in glowing terms, her description, while objectively accurate, did not come close to describing our experience. Whenever venturing out and about, we always found ourselves wanting to return to this serene place, to just sit and enjoy the scenery, the wonderful accommodations, the birds, the incredible weather, and the ambiance that Mary Ellen has created. This is a mountain top paradise.

“Awesome location in a beautiful coffee farm”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We spent a week at the house in December 2016. Great location, wonderful host and surrounded by all kinds of fruit trees. Off the beaten path with great views in all directions. Home is well fitted out. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of hot water and comfy beds. The decor was perfect and just well thought out. House was very clean as well. Had numerous conversations with the gardener and heard his thoughts of the property. The bird watching on the front porch was wonderful and we spent a lot of time just watching, drinking coffee, and doing very little. The host Cat was very helpful and answered all our questions and gave us local insight regarding the community.

“Slice of Heaven”
Reviewed 4 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

people found this review helpful

The Guesthouse was a spectacular place to stay. A paradise only 15 minutes to the main square in Boquete. The landscaping is perfection, as is the general setting of the property in the mountains. Colorful birds and insects abound. The sky provides the perfect panorama of shifting colors and night time stars. The house itself is well built and up to western standards. Very comfy beds and living room sitting area. On top of all this the host Mary Ellen is a sweetheart. Full of energy and enthusiasm for her Panama lifestyle. I really cant say enough good things about the Alba Verde Guesthouse. It was the best part of my 17 day trip to Panama!
I will be back!!! Todd
