Hotel Policies



NOTE: Short notice cancellations, no-shows & early check-outs do not give us adequate time to re-book a room. This can have a major impact on a small hotel. Cancellations and any change requests must be given in writing, are subject to hotel approval, and are only valid if hotel confirms via email. A room is not considered booked until credit card information has been taken and email confirmation sent by the hotel. Cancellation fees will be automatically charged to credit card provided. The charge will appear on your statement as Boquete Garden Inn Panama. 

REGULAR/GREEM SEASON: Cancellations made 1-14 days before check in: guests charged entire cost of stay (100%). 

HOLIDAY SEASON: Cancellations made 1-21 days before check in: guests charged entire cost of stay (100%) 

LONG STAYS/MULTI-ROOMS (reservations that total 6 days or more – single or multiple rooms).  Cancellations made 1 – 21 days before check in: guests charged entire cost of stay (100%) 

NOTE: No-shows, early check outs and reducing the length of stay in the 14 days before check in (regular season) or 21 days before check in (holidays, long/multi-room room stays), or while at the hotel, are considered to be cancellations.

These policies are final. The hotel does not offer refunds. We reserve the right to apply all conditions. Our Hotel Cancellation Policy applies to all reservations taken online, by phone, email, booking engine or in-person. 


By booking with us, it is understood that you have accepted our terms and conditions. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REVIEW OUR COMPLETE hotel policies.
