I went to Panama with my wife and when we got to the hotel we were surprized. The hotel is very well maintained and very clean. Robert the manager was awesome we were greeted at the door and given a great tour and story of the property very attentive and very willing to help. Looking foward to another visit we had a great time. Once again thank you for all the attention Robert we will see you again.

This bed & breakfast is incredible. The entire house is beautiful as can be seen by the photos, but the experience went above & beyond by the hospitality of Robert. By the end of our 3 day stay there, it felt like I was leaving a good friend. Immediately upon arrival, he wanted to cater to our needs, and he bent over backwards to make sure we were taken care of based on our schedule.

The vibe of the house is very laid back and non-intrusive, which made it feel like a home away from home. It's much larger and spacious than I imagined. I believe there was 2 other rooms occupied at the time of our stay, yet I didn't even realize they were there.

Robert & his staff is very professional & not once did I feel uncomfortable. He's really candid & sincere wanting to make sure his guests have the vacation they are hoping for.

The most vivid memory I have of the house was the sounds of the rushing, rapids from the river which sits about 100 feet away from the Inn. It really sounded like continuous crashing waves from an ocean .... so peaceful. There are huge push out windows on each wall allowing for a perfect breeze to come in & fill the room, which could be left opened all day & night. It really was a beautiful, surreal dream. We didn't want to leave the house even though there was so much sightseeing to do.

We'll definitely return a visit to the Boquete Inn to visit our new friends. Thanks so much, Robert! Enjoy the photos ...

Robert Cook, the manager of Riverside Inn, could not have been more willing and helpful in meeting any and all of our needs. The room was charming as well as comfortable. The all ceramic tile bathroom was beautiful and equiped with a spectacular Jacuzi and the best shower I have ever had in my life. The location was beautiful, situated beside a mountain river with a country feeling, yet being only about a mile from the center of town. The rest of the Inn was warm and beautiful with an inviting fireplace in the center room of the Inn. The grounds have recently been replanted due to a flood, so are not as lush as expected but will improve with time.
All in all our stay was a wonderful experience that I'm looking forward to repeating.

A six roomed hotel that is more like a private house, well decorated and with with lovely furniture. The suite we had was fitted with a four-poster bed, a spa bath and a superb shower facility, the room also had a deck looking out at Volcan Baru over the PaloAlto river. The common area has an open bar that is run on a trust basis and has comfortable seating, a large flat screen TV (there is also one in each room with a good selection of English channels) a fireplace lounge and a free internet area. The hotel is very quiet with only the soft sounds of the river running past in the background and very little passing traffic.
The manager, Robert Cook, is one of the most pleasant and helpful people one could wish to meet and one of the hotel's best assets. He will cheerfully arrange anything available in the area you may wish to do and has strong links to all the tourist activities. The coffee farm tour by Coffee Adventures was a great example.

Next door to the hotel is the Rock restaurant with a first class menu, excellent cooking, service and wines. The room cost includes a good continental breakfast which is also served at the Rock.

Boquete is a pleasant 10 minute walk along the river and has several other good restaurants to try. It is an agriculture based mountain valley town and has some pleasant attributes, especially the bakery 'Sugar and Spice' on the main street which has great pastries and coffee.

Stayed at the Riverside as part of a tour package although we'd researched the hotel earlier when were were we going to try a trip and activities on our own. Came into town by car from Bocas Del Toro and Boquete was a great change of pace. Low and behold we are dropped off at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast right next to the River with a an adjacent restaurant that should be at least rated at 4 stars, ( Great Sancocho soup and sea bass).
It was off season so we were upgraded to the Orquidea suite ( no one there but us), awesome room w/ jacuzzi tub. Robert is the innkeeper and a fantastic host. From arranging activities, or laundry services to recommending other food spots. The windowed terrace and honor bar are at your disposal as is the internet and the big family room w/ fireplace. Can't go wrong. It's a little ways from town so you can't access much be foot but taxis are only $1.50 per person each way. Try the La Posada Pizza spot/casino in town towards the Mi jardin tu jardin at the end of town or the Bistro Restaurant in center of town for some variety, both real good food.
