We spent a wonderful weekend here with another couple. The bar is gorgeous and the mojitos are delicious (with mint picked straight from the garden!)! If you aren't staying at the Panamonte you must at least go to their bar, as it is one of the most tranquil places on Earth.The gardens are beautiful and the rooms are comfortable. If I have it my way, I'll never stay anywhere else!

The hotel is fabulous, it has an excellent location, despite the 45min car trip from David's airport. The place is just amazing, very well cared, the plants, the flowers, the gardens, it is all so nice. If you looking for a calm place to relax, read a book, enjoy your stay in a calm place, this is it. It is surrounded by beautiful garden, and green everywhere, the only noise you hear are the birds. You must try the dinner at the restaurant of the hotel as well, my wife and myself had fish (truta in Portuguese) and langoustine, both were espetacular, for desert lemon pie is the top, but the strawberry is also something. The service is also great, you almost do not feel but they are always there, fantastic place, recommend and you go back there. For those who don't like 50-100 seats airplane it can be an issue because that's about what you get from panama to David, then as stated above 45 min drive. Nevertheless, worth it.

We went to Boquete for our honeymoon, and could not have been more pleased with Panamonte. We had the honeymoon suite, which is enormous and has a jacuzzi and a personal outdoor fireplace. The service was incredible, including the transfers from the David Airport (thanks to Elmer!). We ate dinner every night at the restaurant because it was so delicious. My personal favorite was the hearts of palm ceviche, and the filet was incredible as well. The grounds are picturesque, and it is beautiful even when it is raining. This place was all around impressive. Our one issue was with the music choice, which was 80's and 90's rock... weird choice for a rustic escape from it all.

Room Tip: Honeymoon spot is romantic and perfect for a couple.

I stayed here two nights at one of the garden suites (stay at these if possible!) great terrace with view to an inner garden, big room, clean, comfortable. The house is beautiful!!! with nice flowers, great staff, and the food is to die for!! having breakfast outside with a nice view is very relaxing and breathtaking. Definitely recommended! I wanted to stay the whole week!

Room Tip: garden rooms definitely (the new rooms!) not the rooms in the house!

I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much my mother and I enjoyed our stay at the Panamonte. The service the whole staff provided was impeccable. When we first arrived we had come from a white water rafting tour and we freezing as we checked in. We had barely put our bags down in our room when a staff member brought us hot tea. The serving staff at the restaurant were also wonderful and attentive, and the food could not have been better. Additionally as we were preparing to leave we found ourselves outside of the normal constraints of the laundry services hours. However, your staff graciously washed all of our clothes and had them ready for us hours before we needed them. I really could not be happier with the service we had. Finally the hotel and grounds were beautiful. I will definitely be recommending your hotel to friends and family, and I look forward to staying there again on my next visit to Boquete. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

We spent two nights at the Panamonte and loved it. We stayed in room 12 which was large and beautiful with a patio in the garden. The bar was especially lovely with fireplaces and a great atmosphere. We also loved the spa...the massage rooms were basic but the massages outstanding. We ate twice at the restaurant and while it was very good, it didn't quite live up to the hype.

We ran into two problems that were taken care of by the staff. First, we were taken to a room with only one bed when we had requested two, but within minutes we were given a different room. On our final day at breakfast we made some substitutions for exactly what was on the menu (asked for fruit instead of bacon) and were not told we would be charged for that change. After breakfast when they showed us the bill we were surprised and said we should have been told there would be a charge. The person we spoke with at the restaurant was not helpful but we were running late and did not have time to speak with someone else. We brought this up at check out and the charge was removed without any questions.

Overall the hotel, bar, and spa were excellent and the restaurant was very good. We would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 12 was large, beautiful, and had a great little patio.

Very good staff and amenities. Stayed over the weekend at the colibri suite and it was amazing. The Panamonte is very peaceful and relaxing and the staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The food is a bit expensive at the hotel but still very good. I recommend visiting the la Posada Boqueteña for more food variety. (2 mins walking distance.)
