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!!
