The Riverside Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

So much to love about this thoughtful, European-inspired well-loved spot just out of town. Large, comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and great public spaces, including a free computer, fireplace, comfy couches, and a glassed-in salon with TV, honor bar, and a view of the backyard sloping down to the river. Deisy at reception is so sweet and helpful. Included breakfast next door at The Rock is tasty and filling – during our stay, it was cheese, bread, meet, coffee, juice and homemade yogurt all available on a patio overlooking the river. A bit of a walk from downtown - 1.8km / 20 minute walk / $3 taxi ride – the relative isolation allows one to fall asleep listening to birds and the flow of the river.

Best place we stayed in Panama. Very small hotel with high standards for a very low price. You should also eat in the nearby restaurant which is very good. If it had a small pool it would be seven stars

The only thing I regret about my stay is that I had two nights in Boquete and in the Riverside Inn. I booked the junior suite and it was very spacious and pretty well equipped.The continental breakfast at the small restaurant by the river was included. Overall the hotel offered a good value for money I paid. But what is most important I felt in love with this charming little place. It is so sweet and tranquil that I want to come back soonest

The Riverside inn is a beautiful small Hotel, lovely decorated and very clean. It is located 3km out of town, it's a 25 minutes walk through a beautiful landscape. Our room had a beautiful view and the bed is very very comfi. The staff is sweet as can be. Thank you

I fell in love with The Riverside Inn in Boquete. It is a small country inn but is so lovely and quaint. Upon entering, a warm, cozy fire greets you in the living room. There is a beautiful sun room with a bar and comfortable sitting area. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The beds are super comfortable and breakfast is included. The Riverside has so many little details that make it a little slice of heaven in paradise.

The Riverside pays great attention to detail. We had the master suite which had a Jacuzzi tub for two and a rain forest shower. The air conditioning was perfect and the house was an architectural gem. The surrounding us look like the garden of Eden. The staff was friendly, helpful and thorough. The restaurant next-door, the rock, was a gastronomical delight.

An small and really relaxing place. Little outside the center of Boquete. The garden around the hotel is really nice next to the river. The only thing close is the restaurant the Rock. An top class restaurant. That is only 30-40 m away. The only negative I can say is that you need an car to stay here. Because all other things you have Boquete is a few km away.

Beautiful, small, country-side inn. Well appointed rooms with comfortable beds. Some rooms with additional loft sleeping area or outside deck. Cozy sitting area with fireplace. Nice common area with coffee provided every morning and an honor bar available for quiet imbibing while enjoying the views of the mountain/forest through expansive windows. Rooms are cozy and also have large widows that open to the views. No screens needed here in Boquete as the altitude excludes the mosquitoes found in lower elevations of Panama. The staff, particularly the manager, Miss Deysi, were very helpful and accommodating. A short walk to the adjoining restaurant (The Rock) provided the included Continental Breakfast of fresh bread, fruit, yogurt parfait and, of course, fine Panamanian coffee direct from local plantations. Highly recommended.

Excellent hotel , very well maintained excellent hospitality by staff.excellent ambiance inside the hotel . The only thing we did not like is the breakfast,but referring the competitive rate we had , it is better to have a good rate with poor breakfast than adding 20 or 30 $ to the rate for a breakfast that u might not need .

We spent 3 nights at the Riverside Inn at the end of January. The inn itself is quite lovely. Very well maintained and very clean. Our room was a loft suite and was very spacious and comfortable. The upper loft had 2 twin beds - perfect for our kids - and the king bed in the main sleeping area was very comfortable. The bathroom was also spacious and nice. The included breakfast is next door at The Rock restaurant. It was a very nice continental breakfast. It is the same every day so I could see it getting repetitive if you stayed for any longer than we did. I believe you can order some additional items beyond the continental but we didn't do that. The honor bar and the fireplace sitting area really make this place feel like home! It's about a 15 minute walk into the town - quite easy. We walked a few times during the days but we took taxis at night because the road is rather narrow and there aren't sidewalks or good lighting. The only complaint we had during our stay was the noise that occurred during the very windy weather we had while we were there. It sounded as if there was a loose piece of roofing or something else banging on the building. It made for some less peaceful nights of sleep. But the inn itself and the location are fantastic.
