The Guest Suites at Manana Madera Coffee Estate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We had an INCREDIBLE time at Manana Madera. We stayed in a guest suite for three nights and Randy, the owner of the coffee plantation, helped us organize a wonderful itinerary (hiking, rafting, massages, etc.) He often knew what we wanted before we did.

Randy was particularly helpful with logisitics - rental cars, flights, getting from here to there around Boquete, etc. He made reservations for us for various activities and encouraged us to drop our rental car off early (which was absolutely the right thing to do based on our travel itinerary). Then, Randy himself picked us up and dropped us off at various places on the last day of our stay. He had great restaurant recommendations and he really thought of everything, including giving us a cell phone for our stay in Boquete so we could call him with any questions, if we were lost, etc. Randy was available to help but never intrusive or overbearing.

Enough about logistics - Manana Madera is absolutely magnificent. It is about a ten minute drive from downtown Boquete but the drive up into the mountains is well worth it. We stayed in one of two suites. It was very comfortable and cool - a great respite from some of the other muggy and humid locations we visited throughout Panama. The suite is beautifully finished with really nice appliances, great pressure in the shower, and excellent wifi access. And an adorable "ranchito" just steps away from the suite where you can lie in a hammock and just take it all in.

I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. Thank you Randy!!

What more praise can I heap upon Manaña Madera Guest Suites after over 150 5 star reviews, I can only confirm all the other wonderful experiences people have had staying there.

The bedroom and living area are comfortable and well appointed.

The views from the ranchito of the surrounding mountains and Volcán Barú are stunning.

The tranquil gardens are immaculately kept.

And Randy is the most gracious and generous host imaginable.

I will return soon.

I'd give this place 10 rating if possible! The property features 2 identical standalone guest houses set high up in the hills about 10 minutes from downtown Boquete. The view is fantastic, overlooking the valley, hills, and Volcano Baru. Our favorite spot was the "ranchero" for relaxing in the hammocks and enjoying a cup of coffee with the amazing view.

Randy was a fantastic host and this was by far the best "bed & breakfast" I've ever been or heard of! Each morning he would deliver your breakfast order to your suite along with some of his fresh roasted coffee. The unit was well equipped with all the toiletries you could imagine as well as a minifridge and coffee maker so you could enjoy his coffee any time of day. He also can arrange relaxation massages in your suite which was great after a day of hiking. Ask Randy for restaurant & activity suggestions as all turned out fantastic (The Rock, Big Daddy's, Café Ruiz coffee tour, etc)

Thanks Randy!

What a wonderful experience! The guest cottages were modern, comfy and super clean with a lovely view of the mountains - movies, books, wifi and freshly ground Mañana Madera coffee was provided along with a yummy breakfast delivered to us each morning by Randy. We loved everything - hope to someday return to this mountain retreat.

Wow! From the moment we arrived at the property till the moment we left, Randy and Kat made us feel welcome. We are already planning our next trip. Randy made great recommendations for eating, shopping and site seeing. The accommodations were outstanding, attention to detail from hammocks to coffee were beyond our expectations. Randy was always willing to help us and even provided a phone so that we could reach him at anytime if we needed assistance. The ambassador of the coffee estate was a great host also. Chubs waited patiently each morning for us to have our coffee outside our suite with him.
Don't hesitate, make your reservation!
