“Hidden treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

This property was such a wonderful surprise. The grounds were gorgeous, the rooms were beautiful, very updated and comfortable, especially for Panama. I loved sitting on the little porch area and being one with the landscaping. The people in the office were nice. The morning breakfast was delicious and the outdoor dining with the fireside area and open spaces was very inviting. The dinner we had was delicious and everyone was happy. No pool or anything but that is ok. Did have a little bug problem in our room, tiny little gnats, but when we told them about it they sprayed our room and it seemed to clear up. Walking distance from the town. We had a little maid issue in our room, perhaps we didn't understand but the maid service wasn't what I expected...

Room Tip: There are some rooms with fire places outside etc...be sure to ask about choices.

We spent a wonderfully relaxing ladies weekend at the Panamonte Inn in Boquete and had a wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The food is outstanding with portions to certainly fill the largest of appetites. Looking dpforward to returning in the very near future.

I had a short stay but very pleasant. The room overlooking the garden in which I was very nice and comfortable, with a touch of classic, spacious bathroom with good amenities. I emphasize that I had one of the best Eggs Benedict for breakfast I've had in my life, I must congratulate the chef certainly gave one a unique touch with the lemongrass, the service was excellent.

From my guidebook, I expected a stuffy old world experience. Not at all. Panamonte is a charming property, with beautiful gardens, a very nice bar, and probably the best restaurant in Boquete. We stayed in El Fresal, the 3-bedroom "apartment" across the street and were very happy with the experience. Walking distance to town but along a quiet dead-end street. The gardens were so pleasant. Great room service (full restaurant menu). Great service all around. Highly recommended if you want to be in town.

It is very hard to find a spot as perfect as the Panamonte in all of Panama. It has everything a traveler like me requires: charm, comfort, excellent personalized service and wonderful cuisine. I went there a couple of night ago for an overnight and it was just that, perfect. I started at the bar with their famous El Salto cocktail, just after the fireplaces were lit and the warm fires beckoned.
The handsome dining room did not attract me because I was alone, and so I chose instead to have dinner at the bar, which management promptly and courteously provided. The food was delicious (a lovely mesclun and goat cheese salad with lardons followed by a hefty portion of corvina (sea bass) with fresh mushrooms and thyme. I asked for vegetables instead of the mashed potatoes and what a treat to eat organically grown fresh veggies in Panama, grilled just so with good olive oil and herbs. Breakfast the next morning was also wonderful.
My single room was comfy, the bed a bit too hard for my taste, but everything else was right.
I can not wait to find another occasion to return.

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.
