I am finding it difficult to phrase an opinion, the hotel left little impression. The room was basic but it was OK for a few nights and both the TV and wifi (mostly) worked. Personally I would have expected a little more for the money paid although I did not pay the full advertised rate. Perhaps I have not made... More

Fundadores ("The Founders", since they were the first Boquete hotel) is conveniently located on the main road into town, a short distance from the town's center. A small river runs through the property, making the ambience here pretty spectacular. The common areas have plenty of secluded space along the river's edge (as well as a pool table). You feel like...

Economical, Friendly and Clean but dated. We stayed in a king room which is really a nice sized cabin with a tv, free Wi-Fi and mini fridge. Walking distance to many restaurants and center of town. The front desk personnel understood my poor attempt at Spanish lol. The ambiance of the hotel was great with the creek flowing through the... More

The hotel is older and is showing it. No bar or restaurant on the property all though there is plenty within walking distance. Located about 7 blocks from the center of town on the main street. You can find newer and nicer but expect the price to be a lot higher.

Stayed here while traveling with three friends. The hotel is located on your left just as you enter the Boquete town center, so it is very convenient if you plan to explore the towns tourist excursions, cafes, and restaurants. A small river cuts right through the hotel central pavilion so you hear a nice sound of running water. Rooms were... More

The reviews really pan this place and, to be fair, we only booked because it was the only place with a room given our complete lack of planning. That said, it does what it needs to, and you shouldn't be spending any time in the hotel anyway, given the amount of outdoor activities. Things to note: - - Our hot... More

Hot water, or lack thereof, is a frequent issue here. Furniture smelled of mildew. Convenient location, nice grounds. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. During a stay of 1 week, housekeeping only came once, so we had to get clean towels ourselves. Room was close enough to the wi-fi hot spot so we were able to grab a... More

Nothing real fancy but reasonable, quiet an right in Boquete. We got to town early in the morning, left olur bags and checked in just after noon. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Met some great guests too. Plenty of space to just hang out and enjoy the people and the setting. There is hot water but it may not last... More

I decided to go to Boquete on short notice and didn't think about lodging until I was on my was. I wouldn't go back. No hot water in 112, changed rooms 3 x in 2 days. Wifi in 2 of the 3 rooms. Nice brook area where you can chill with your computer. Hard beds!
