“Lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Fantastic view, excellent value and enjoyable service. We stayed 3 nights during carnival and we were delighted to discover this lovely location. The place is very small so the service is personalized. It's like they are receiving a visit from a family member that they haven't seen since a long time. The food was always amazing: homemade typical Panamanian dishes. Breakfast was included and it was also great. No mosquitoes whatsoever. They will see me there often, I suspect.

We decided not to go to Anton Valle, as we expected it to be too much of a touristy place. La Pintada is the sleepy village within cool hills. Lovely little village with a perfect hotel, the La Pintada River Inn. Just a few minutes outside La Pintada itself and 20 minutes away from Penonome the Inn is beautifully located on a green hill with at the bottom a clear and crisp river which you can perfectly swim in. Dustin 'DP' runs this place with a nice open area restaurant with room around it with a very chill and relaxed way. He is also a sure win for a good night of drinks and entertaining stories. An absolute must visit if you want to stay just 2.5 hours away from Panam City in the cool hills.

My wife and I wanted to get out of Panama City for the weekend. We saw a promotion in the Panama Visitor Magazine for La Pintada Inn. 2 nights with free breakfasts and free Champagne and a late check out Sunday all included. Everything was fantastic. The river and extensive grounds are spectacular. Casual but well run.
The next weekend we took our 2 kids. They had more fun than us....

We stayed at La Pintada Inn late April 2012 and had a pleasant experience. The room was large and clean and the bed comfortable. But the grand palapa with it's stunning views was the real star here. Whether you are sipping a beer looking at stars or sipping coffee in the morning gazing out at the forested hills, the palapa is a great place to be. The price is quite reasonable and the host is affable and eager to help with ideas of what to do in the area. The free wifi is a plus. I would definitely recommend staying here and will do just that the next time I'm in the area.

If you want to hide away in Panama, this is your place....convenient, yet off the beaten path. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, with rates of about $50. Staff are genuinely friendly. Breakfast munchies and coffee are available in the morning, constant breezes all day, and a very casual open area to spend the evening. This place is clean, clean, clean and the grounds are meticulously maintained. The hiking path was the perfect way to start a day and the swimming hole is beautiful and refreshing. The view and the birds are great entertainment on their own if you just want to swing in a hammock and drink a beer. The Inn is close to destinations like El Valle and the beaches if you make it the base for day trips around the central region of Panama. The Inn is so peaceful, it would be a great place to just check in and stay without going anywhere else. A little lending library would be a great addition to the hammocks. Wine, beer and champagne are served and the dining room is going to be a lively place at night when word gets out about the pizza. Stay here. Not a single disappointment.

My wife and i came up to the area just to drive around and found this hotel. It is an amazing place. Clean, comfortable rooms ( all have A/C and private bathrooms) . The river is AMAZING. It is on the property and has a fantastic deep swimming hole which is so relaxing to swim and float in. They also put a hiking trail so you can get a view of the whole valley. We came for a day drive and stayed for 2 nights. They also are putting in a pizza oven for home made pizzas and they sell Champagne and beer. Breakfast was nice - fresh pastry and coffee. Oh, I almost forgot all the birds. I know nothing about birds but there are tons of yellow birds, blue hummingbirds and all sorts of hawks. The cool breeze that runs through this place is amazing as is the temperature, NICEST in Panama. Very worthwhile place if you need to get out of the city and the beaches.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed pretty much the same. Turn off the A/C and open the windows, the breeze is fant...
