Unfirtunately we couldn't enjoy the beauty of this hotel (it was pricy for us 220 $ per night). It was the only empty hotel in the whole valley , just birds and animals. The manager was too busyntomcome out and greet the visitors. Just as well,because we found wonderfull paradise "cabañas Pedasì" and enjoyed our stay in valle de Anton.

We have spent a night with friends in this lovely hotel. The gardens are lush and tropical very well kept, the landscaping accurate and colorful. Each room is different, we stayed at the Cariguana, a very nice spacious room with comfortable beds and immaculate linen. The bathroom is spotless and well equipped with quality toiletries and a nice bathrobe. There... More

We stayed a weekend here and completely relaxed. there is nothing here that is exciting so don't bring the kids to screw up the ambiance. Birds, butterflies and croaking fogs, morning and night. the rooms are lovely, having been updated. Baths are reflective of the old hacienda and the new updates. Staff is very accommodating if sometimes a little hard... More

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.
