Great wifi - thank you! And the grounds are beautiful with plenty of nooks and crannies to sit and relax. The rooms are in need of some serious TLC so if you are coming for any romantic reason....well, move right along because the beds were not made for rocking! They were barely made for sleeping. I had terrible water pressure... More

After driving all the way through the lovely town of Boquete and into its surrounding mountains, we decided to stay. We swung back to the beginning of town on the main road to the Hotel Fundadores, with no previous reservation. There was secure parking inside a gated yard. We were given a room well back in the lovely structure, crossing... More

We arrived late at night and they assisted us in a very polite manner. Nice and spacious room. Common areas are fully covered with nature, even a river go through the facility. (See photos below). Close to anything in Boquete I personally recommend this hotel for a family and or friends trip.

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
