We spent two nights at this hotel. Room was fine, had two double beds, large tv and free wifi which worked well. Bathroom had plenty of hot water. The views towards the mountains are very pretty and the garden area is quite attractive with two brooks and lots of flowers. Price was very budget friendly. Breakfast was not included in... More

I came here this weekend with my family, and I had the best time in Panama so far. The hotel looks excellent. They have great service. Bathrooms are very well finished, as well as room-service, and everything works as it should. Food is great, and the clerks are incredibly friendly. If you come to Panama, you have to stay here...

Hikers and bird watchers have enjoyed this full service hotel for decades. Weather you are climbing El Baru or searching for Quetzals or just exploring Cerro Punta, this is a comfortable place to return to. The restaurant is exceptional. Chef Ruthie really knows her trade. The food is good, the staff is pleasant, and prices are affordable.

We were with a group so not sure what the price per night is. When we arrived around noon pizza was served and really hit the spot. Evening meal was so so. The rooms are basic but can hear everything from adjoining rooms. Beautiful ground and views of Baru volcano. Wifi was really sporadic. For this area I'd say it... More

So, part of my tour through Panamanian highlands included a visit to Volcan. We stopped here because it is supposed to be very nice, but we got a hankering for something to eat. We had a nice view and ordered bruschetta, clams in garlic sauce and a lasagna to split. Everything was pretty good, very nice. We did not stay... More

I arrived in Vulcan w/out reservations and looked at a few hotels before choosing this one for one night (not many to choose from!). I found it seriously overpriced for what you receive, but more comfortable than others in town. Dos Rios is a short distance from town just off the highway, and was a quiet location; the staff were... More

We stayed here 3 nights while on a birding trip with Birding panama and loved it. The grounds are gorgeous, lovely gardens, waterfall and bridges, and peaceful spots to sit and rest. Great birding spot. Food was pretty good, at least the pizza, which I ordered every night. Only problem here was wifi, which was out more than working, but... More

The Dos Rios has a lot going for it - decent rooms, good service, great location, fresh air, beautiful gardens. It is well set back from the road, so trucks roaring by are well muffled. The restaurant - well, it depends what you order. Small problems were attended to promptly and successfully, but one bigger problem is much tougher to... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while birding with Birding Panama. We would absolutely visit again. We stayed in a suite and it was very charming, clean, and comfortable with a wonderful of the gardens and Volcan Baru. The laundry service was excellent and prices are reasonable. The restaurant is very nice and while we would have... More

A quiet and peaceful hotel with a brook running through the middle of it. It is also 'kid' friendly with a playground area. I stayed two separate nights and found it very restful. The restaurant is average, but has a solid food menu with a varied selection. The view of Volcan Baru as the sun sets is breathtaking.
