The Panamonte Inn, built in 1914, is a charming, restful and beautifully appointed property in the scenic highland town of Boquete. The grounds at the Inn are filled with lovely flowers, cactus, and shade trees and the layout exudes serenity and grace.
We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, the best room at the Inn, which includes a large master bedroom, and a quaint outside seating area complete with its own outside fireplace. The suite also feature a full sized two-person Jacuzzi and a large walk-in closet, large flat screen TV, full WIFI and elegant decorations.
The service at the Inn was extremely friendly and responsive and the bar and restaurant operation are world class. The restaurant is lovely, with a fine menu including local rainbow trout and local greens and vegetables, as well as a fine wine list filled with great South American and European wines. The best trout I have every tasted and many new wines to sample (from Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, etc.).
The bar is very cozy and includes both indoor and outdoor fireplaces with large overstuffed couches and chairs creating an inviting and congenial atmosphere for the Inn's guests and others to enjoy. The bartender was excellent and local specialty drinks were great.
We retired to our room after a 13 mile hike on the Quetzales Trail around the nearby Baru Volcano with rainforest views from over 3,000 meters (highly recommend this hike-- a bit strenuous but worth the effort to see the spectacular highly scenery, rainforest, birds, etc.). You will need a local guide who is used to navigating the trail.
