My friends and I booked this place through booking.com. I was a bit anxious because I had read some reviews about rooms being double booked and not available when people turned up etc. This also happened to us, but there was a family room available which we were able to have instead so the problem was quickly resolved.

She was a lovely host and provided us a family room with a private bathroom with constant hot water. The beds were comfy, we found it to be clean, friendly,... More

The location and view is Good but it was not clean. We also have to pay thé booking commission wich was not indicated on the privé when we made the reservation. The owner was unpleasant and gave us advice concerning visits.

I had a similar experience as Brian H. I called to make a reservation for 3 nights. She said next available room was over 5 days, it was very busy that time because of the flower festival, the two missing Dutch girls and semana santa. We agreed on 35 usd a night and my wife and I waited in David... More

The hostel is located next to the river and has a beautiful little garden to relax and a little simple outdoor kitchen. The rooms are nice and clean and so is the bathroom. We just had some minor problems to get hot water in the shower. The owner and other people working there are really nice and helpful.

You are no longer a backpacker but hate snobby places without souls? Then Suenos del rio is the place for your stop in Boquete. Uber-friendly staff, clean rooms, great location, bargain prices. We slept at another very expensive place the night before and we had to fight hams before finding this vacation saver! Reading in the hammock by the river... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and upon arrival we were given the choice of an inner room or the renovated (and still rough) honeymoon-like suite. There are two kitchens (full fridge, stove, microwave, blender, dishes, etc.) available to guests. WiFi strong in the library, with weak signal in our room. Electricity was consistent. Fans in the rooms (but Boquete... More

Suenos del Rio is just north of the bridge near the downtown area. It has 5 rooms only, which rent for $20-$30 (women stay cheaper because they cause fewer problems). The rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely painted, with art on the walls. All rooms have private baths.There are TVs and free wi-fi in all of the rooms. There are... More
