Awesome place in the cool valley of Boquete where I have repeatedly stayed at. This BnB wakes you up with a warm coffee, fresh juice, and the greatest jams I have ever tasted. The service and hospitality provided by the staff and the owner are so top notch as to rival any neighboring hotels. Agaseke is walking distance from downtown, so do take advantage of it by exploring the city. Make sure to ask François about the story behind the name, Agaseke.

Agaseke is a very clean, quiet, comfortable guest house located a short walk from the center of town and within walking distance to many of Boquete's attractions. The property is very well-maintained and the owner Francine and her staff are wonderful. Francine gave us a ride from the bus station to the guest house when we arrived and took us around town to make sure we were able to book a tour for the next day. Francine knows everyone and is a great resource. She made us coffee on her day off and even dropped us at the bus when it was time to leave. We had a great time in Boquete and highly recommend staying at Agaseke!

We've spend two nights in Agaseke. From the outside nice looking, very well maintained building. Nice accessories and wine opener provided. Gate and doors are solid and provided with heavy locks which gave us a safe feeling. WiFi is provided and works good. The room (and bedsheets) are not modern but clean and tidy. The owners were friendly, welcomed us with a homemade fruit juice and came to check on us once in a while. An early breakfast was possible (which you would expect as the majority of activities in Boquete start around 8AM especially in rainy season). What was nice is that we got a drink and some snacks for during the day, thoughtful!

The room is provided with a small bathroom (hit our head to doorpost or cupboard when standing up from toilet in the night, not much room to manoeuvre when having a north European length). The windows cannot be closed and there is no A/C; there is a fan though. This meant we were woken up by talking kids just next to our window or barking dogs. Double bed was OK but a bit small and hard. All in all after having seen 8 other accommodations in Panama, we really don't understand why Agaseke is ranked full five stars. For us it is at the bottom of the 9 accommodations we saw in Panama.

Fran T, Owner at Agaseke Boquete, responded to this reviewResponded 6 May 2016

Clients' reviews are an important way to learn about our clients' preferences and needs. This latest review was, however, puzzling: of the 7 complaints I read in the review, one was pertinent, one did not apply and 5 were inexact and I must therefore qualify them: why say the rooms and bedsheets weren't modern when Agaseke was finished building in Jan 2015 and everything, all furniture and ancillaries was bought new incl. all bedsheets albeit all from USA origin. The bathroom door post was said to be so low that the client did hit his head on it (or on the Boticario). Well, while I am sorry for the occurrence, the Boticario cabinet is on the wall, intended to be out of range of head-knocking while offering its mirror for shaving etc, while the bathroom (which is indeed a small one) has a door which is a standard 7 feet doorway which begs the question: how did the client hit the post? The windows are standard louvre-type used in tropical climates and can be easily closed by turning the handle and the nearest kids (of our neighbours) live at more than 50 feet away. At Agaseke we do not have A/C because the attraction of Boquete is its cool climate (21 celsius avarage) so a room ceiling fan has, so far, been adequate albeit seldom used. The clients double bed was, in fact, a queen bed which is a larger size we always try to use for middle European clients. All in all, we can only surmise that the client was there at the start of the rains & it did rain some, so maybe, this might have regrettably coloured his souvenir of his stay.
But we will have written instructions stickers printed on how to turn the windows close-open operating handle because I can see how some clients might be unfamiliar with them.

This is a quiet and secure location on the outskirts of Boquete. It is only a short 3 blocks to he main street. The owner, Francine was very helpful and kind. She prepared a great fruit smoothie for us upon arrival. She also went out of her way by taking us to the other side of town where I had unintentionally left my day pack. The room was basic, but clean.

We travel to Boquete to escape the rowdiness of carnival . We arrived via tourist van from Boca del Toro. When we got there we were fatigued and a little under the weather.Agseke was the perfect place to recoup.. The owner Francine was there to pick us up without us even asking!
We stayed for over a week . Everyday was a new and lovely experience. Francine arranged activities for us. She is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. Our stay was a memorable time ,one I will never forget.

Room tip: All rooms are great.
