We moved to Panama 9 years ago this month and hadn't been to El Valle for 3-4 years. With the hour and half to two hour trip up to the volcano area and the stress of traffic we chose to spend the night rather than a day trip. As we remember this hotel was a little shabby years ago so... More

The hotel is small, the grounds are beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxing, it is baby friendly, good internet, attentive staff, highly recommended all around. Then why 4 stars? Hot water problems! First the room did not have hot water, then they came and fixed it. After that we only had hot water for about 5min before it ran out (in... More

Wonderful time at this hacienda style property! Rooms were clean and comfortable. Service was outstanding. We felt at home. Highly recommend a stay here. Big thank you to Roberto for the delicious meal on our last evening and our fresh flowers in our room

El Valle is filled with weekend homes for Panama City's old money elite. This home (which supposedly used to be in pretty tough shape) has recently been remodeled as a luxury boutique hotel with about ten rooms. Rooms are somewhat small but have high quality beds and linens. The bathroom however is quite spacious with a walk-in shower with two... More

Best: - The "Pilón" room is modern, design and clean with a big bed. - Huge bathroom and shower. - They put lovely flowers in the room when we came back from a walk. - The flatscreen TV with cable channels has a USB plug so we could see our own TV series brought from our home country on a... More

When we lived in Panama, Crater Valley was our favorite escape away from a bustling everyday llife in Panama City. The children loved the swimmingpool and the garden and as parents we could fully relax and enjoy tranquility and nature while simoultansely keep an eye on the children. We especially appreciated management who was always service oriented, friendly, attentative and... More

This was my second visit to Crater Valley and the weekend was better then the first time. The entire property felt as though it was ours. I enjoyed walking through the exquisitely manicured gardens which have many hidden nooks to read, watch the birds, discover the many varieties of orchards nestled in the trees or just sit and meditate.

What a unique and beautiful gem of a resort! We could tour the amazing grounds and hear nature all around us, then retreat to our room with a warm shower, luxurious sheets and snuggle up and listen to the thunderstorm! We had great massages in the open palapa over- looking the pond ...listening to the frogs, birds and gently running... More

What a great experience for us and the kids. The rooms are really nice, clean and new! The kids loved the pool and jacuzzi, along with the hotel grounds and playground. We felt like we were at a vacation house, instead of an informal hotel, with great service. We left a camera there, and Geysha immediately emailed us, and put... More

We stayed at crater valley six days in total with the whole family including granny, who is very picky. We had an amazing time. Due to low season we had the whole hotel for ourselves. Before checking in we were welcomed heartly and shown every single room to chose from. The rooms are really beautiful and rather large, although some... More
