Fundadores Hotel
Ranked #12 of 12 Hotels in Boquete
Reviewed 1 January 2014

The reviews really pan this place and, to be fair, we only booked because it was the only place with a room given our complete lack of planning.

That said, it does what it needs to, and you shouldn't be spending any time in the hotel anyway, given the amount of outdoor activities.

Things to note: -
- Our hot water was fine for 2 nights
- The room was clean enough
- Noise was a bit of an issue, given location of our room relative to main thoroughfare, but I put this hotel in the budget end of the market and I think you accept that to some degree
- The stream running through it is pretty cool
- The reception guys spoke very limited English. It didn't present us with any problems......they still ordered us a couple of taxis when we needed them
- Location was great. 2 mins walk to Sugar and Spice, and 5 mins from center of town
- We didn't try to organize any activities from the hotel, or try the restaurant

Hot water, or lack thereof, is a frequent issue here. Furniture smelled of mildew. Convenient location, nice grounds. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. During a stay of 1 week, housekeeping only came once, so we had to get clean towels ourselves. Room was close enough to the wi-fi hot spot so we were able to grab a signal. Price was reasonable, but don't think will stay there again. Looks like owners are trying to fix the place up, but still a ways to go.

Nothing real fancy but reasonable, quiet an right in Boquete. We got to town early in the morning, left olur bags and checked in just after noon. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Met some great guests too. Plenty of space to just hang out and enjoy the people and the setting. There is hot water but it may not last too long so don't daudle in the shower.

I decided to go to Boquete on short notice and didn't think about lodging until I was on my was. I wouldn't go back. No hot water in 112, changed rooms 3 x in 2 days. Wifi in 2 of the 3 rooms. Nice brook area where you can chill with your computer. Hard beds!

We arrived in Boquete with no room. Everywhere was full except this place so we had no choice. It did the job for one night but..

Rooms are run down and dirty. Bathroom was a disgrace.
No hot water (insisted on a discount the next morning and got 15% off)
WIFI is weak

No one speaks English here, waited a long time to explain that we do not have hot water. The service at breakfast was glacial. Good location tho, short walk to everywhere. Good value, only $44 a night
