How to Get There

Oasis tranquil and beautiful
l g

Elegant and modern rooms, beautiful landscape, excellent and tasteful presentation of food and drink, and a staff that is attentive, courteous, and helpful. We had been travelling for a week and needed a laundromat and a clerk assisted us by sending out our clothes to be washed and dried and returned to us with a few hours....excellent service.

a hotel with charm and character

My wife and I stayed at the Panamonte last January. We loved everything about this hotel: the charm of the well preserved buildings, some dating back a century, the spaciousness, comfort and quietness of the rooms overlooking the mature and beautiful garden, the quality of the cuisine, masterly prepared with local ingredients under the supervision of chef Charlie Collins, whose family has owned the property for a long time. The hotel staff were friendly yet unobtrusive, and very helpful. Even though the hotel is located within walking distance of down-town Boquete, it is very quiet at night.
We spent a delightful three days there, and felt very much at home in this luxurious and unpretending hotel. We are already making plans to return after the rainy season!

Un Desayuno Pequeno

Had a small breakfast on terrace off the main dinning area. Cappuccinos and local cheese with chorizos, pan fried bread as extra. Muy satisfecho! Service was leisurely; however, just as I required for a mid-morning repast; i.e., descansando. The grounds of this over 100 year old hotel are very lovely. If one can believe the hotel promo, Sean Connery stopped here. Can you say: “Bond, James Bond”? Apparently, he preferred “El Salto”! James, “Stirred, not Shaken,” Que Pasa? Soon, the first day opening numbers of the 2019 Boquete Jazz & Blues Festival will take to the air. We’ll be there! Quisira un Salto, por favor!
