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

What a pleasant surprise. We were SO impressed. This GEM has been recently upgraded and remodeled. PLUS: under new management! Let me start by saying that I had been hesitant to return after my last trip 2 years ago. What first impacts you as you enter the property are the incredibly expansive grounds. Green everywhere. This is a third-generation family... More

I enjoyed my stay here so much that I started a Facebook page for them. Please visit Crater Lake Panama on Facebook and check out Malice the web series on YouTube! The only improvements I would recommend is having a stronger internet signal and upgrading the TV sets. Great value for about 90$ per night. Quiet, scenic, enchanting, and also... More

Situated on a vast secluded piece of land,with beautiful gardens, the hotel offers on site therapeutic massages, heated pool and jacuzzi. The price includes continental breakfast on the... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night in their "suite" for $150 a night and it was terrible. The bed was awful and the room was big but there was no furniture and the A/C barely worked. We only saw one staff member the whole time we were there (and she did not seem happy she was here... More

First impression was great, beautiful driveway. The pool area is also very beautiful with a large pool. Okay that is where the great review stops. When we checked in there was only one girl working who did not know any english. We had to wait a long time to find her, looking around and had to yell for service before... More

The room was rather dark and the uneven stone flooring was quite hard on the feet,especially if you were... More

We were there 3 nights ago and were amazed. All of the good things in the other reviews are true and I would stay here again in a second. Any questions please ask. Roberto and his staff were very nice.
