We stayed in Cabin 4 for a week, which is the furthest cabin from the entrance and very close to the pool (we liked both of those features). The property is beautiful and has a great view of Volcan Baru. The pool is amazing, and is kept really clean. I miss that pool! It was really quiet and peaceful, we... More

During the day the cabins get very hot was very hard to be inside until evening. Seating in the cabin was very uncomfortable and the lighting was poor making hard to read. The... More

The place is quite easy to find; look for a large yellow rock with Boquete River Inn written on it on your left as you are driving from David. We stopped at the large supermarket Rey in David to avoid driving into Boquete on our first day (but it’s only a 5 min drive). I recommend staying here if you... More

We stayed with Ken for 3 nights. It was awesome. Nice view of the vulcan with daily changing clouds, very quiet, beautiful landscape, but only 5 min from town. If in Boquete, and you have a car, this is the place to stay. The decor in the cabin is rather basic but offers plenty of space and everything you could... More

I recently stayed at Boquete River Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My cabin was nice and clean. Very comfortable bed, clean spacious bathroom with hot water (not always found in Panama!). Steps from my front door was a trail that loops around the property, I enjoyed walking out in the mornings and relaxing on one of the benches, enjoying... More

Our stay here was great! Our dog had acres to run around, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and Ken is a great host. He helped us get quality and affordable car repairs and was very knowledgeable of the area in general. We will definitely stay there again if we travel to this area. So peaceful and beautiful.

We stayed here for a month and we enjoyed it so much we are returning in December. The owner, Ken Neil, is truly a super guy. The cabins are very clean and cozy. The pool is also very clean. We used the bus system as well as the taxi service, economical and easy to get around. Recommend Boquete River Inn... More

This is a quiet lovely place to stay, a bit out of town, but we managed it without a car for a few days and then rented a car from Cowboy Daves nearby. Ken is funny, warm, amazingly helpful and just an all around interesting guy. The pool is clean, great. Don't miss the coffee tour.

“There is no air conditioning in the cabins. There is no need for it. Sit on the lounge chair in the shade and feel the breeze come through. Fantastic. Cabin 4 has the best view of Volcan Baru. Cabin 4 also had a nice big ceiling fan in the main room. All windows have screens to allow for more airflow.”
