This hotel is surrounded with mountain views and a river borders the property. The rooms are small but the staff is super friendly, the breakfast was included and overall it was a great stay. Lots of nature, peace and friendly people, just the way I like it.

Our group of five stayed a couple of nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. The food was great and the hospitality of the owner is unparalleled. He was very accommodating and helped us with pointers on our trip to Panama.

Stayed here two nights. Loved the outdoor space. The swimming hole is really nice. DP is a great host and cook. The views are amazing. Rooms are a little small, but you shouldn't be in there except to sleep.

Spent two peaceful nights with DP and Judy two (2) weeks ago. Breakfast is gratis with your room and DP makes a great dinner for $12.50. I had the Tilapia one night and Chicken Breast the next night. DP says it's all in the sauce. Great food, clean rooms and good company. Just sit on the pool deck and watch...

My family and friends visit La Pintada Inn every chance we get for the last 4 years, and we have only good words to say! Instead of just staying in some of the beach hotels, we just go to the beach in the morning and later we continue to Penonome, La Pintada. So we get to swim and get hot...

This is an amazing little town with so much Panamainian culture and hand rolled cigars. The hotel is nicely set on the river where is the best view of this beautiful mountain called Fat Rock. There is even a path to a swimming hotel where you can jump off a 10' foot rock or of course lay py the pool...

This is a great place to visit if you want to get off the gringo trail and see real Panama. It's a great spot to relax and take in fantastic views. La Pintada is about two miles away. We found everyone friendly and helpful there.

Challenge to get to this place since we didn't have a car but very worth the trip! (bus from Panama City then taxi from Penonome).

Isolated location with good showers, TV...

My wife and I had the most delightful experience of staying at La Pintada River Inn for a couple nights this past summer. Now this is the Panama you want to get to know!
