After driving all the way through the lovely town of Boquete and into its surrounding mountains, we decided to stay. We swung back to the beginning of town on the main road to the Hotel Fundadores, with no previous reservation. There was secure parking inside a gated yard. We were given a room well back in the lovely structure, crossing the river that runs through it on a whimsical bridge. While acceptable for cleanliness, we soon found that the room could not block out the florescent lights that stayed on outside the windows all night, which made it feel like perpetual dawn. Worse, the sheets did not quite fit the double bed, and we ended up sleeping on a bare mattress with a clump of bedding in the middle. No restaurant at the moment – not a problem, as many wonderful eateries line the main road, some just next door. The kitchy, fun architecture and fantastic gardens could almost compensate for the lack of restful sleep, but not quite.

We arrived late at night and they assisted us in a very polite manner. Nice and spacious room. Common areas are fully covered with nature, even a river go through the facility. (See photos below). Close to anything in Boquete I personally recommend this hotel for a family and or friends trip.

Room Tip: Try to access the tower

I am finding it difficult to phrase an opinion, the hotel left little impression. The room was basic but it was OK for a few nights and both the TV and wifi (mostly) worked. Personally I would have expected a little more for the money paid although I did not pay the full advertised rate. Perhaps I have not made sufficiant allowance for the costs of Boquette. Another problem, there is a stream running through the property and I can see how this could be calming and provide a pleasent setting. Unfortunately it had been raining heavily and the stream was running fast making it sound as if it was permanently pouring with rain when in truth it only did this some of the time!

Fundadores ("The Founders", since they were the first Boquete hotel) is conveniently located on the main road into town, a short distance from the town's center. A small river runs through the property, making the ambience here pretty spectacular. The common areas have plenty of secluded space along the river's edge (as well as a pool table). You feel like you're in the middle of the forest even though you're really close to town. It's exceptionally quiet given that it's so close to so much activity, and at night the rushing river lulls you to sleep.

It's a no-frills hotel, but clean and with all the necessities and friendly, competent staff. In its heyday it was probably a fancy top spot. There are some popular expat hangouts within about a block, and the beautiful Boquete library as well as a gym are a couple of blocks in the other direction. Also if you happen to need a haircut, color, or mani-pedi, there's a great beauty shop next door run by a wonderful woman who speaks excellent English and serves much of the expat community here.

I'd definitely go back, owing to its atmosphere, location, and competent staff.

Room Tip: Away from the street will yield more river and less city noise.

Economical, Friendly and Clean but dated. We stayed in a king room which is really a nice sized cabin with a tv, free Wi-Fi and mini fridge. Walking distance to many restaurants and center of town. The front desk personnel understood my poor attempt at Spanish lol. The ambiance of the hotel was great with the creek flowing through the common area
