We stayed here for 3 nights with our two kids. The owners and manager were so welcoming and friendly. We instantly felt a part of the family. My kids still talk about this place being one of their favourites of the trip. The owners have 4 dogs and at the time were looking after a bird that had been rescued.... More

Larry and Becky are the best of hosts and their place is one of the most beautiful in the whole of Panama. El Valle is one of the quietest spots, full of the most beautiful gardens. You will be put up in a small cottage with its own garden, kitchenette and bathroom, all immaculately clean and tidy. In the evening... More

What a wonderful little slice of heaven in the cool mountains of Panama. My friend booked The Golden Pond knowing I would love the beauty of the gardens, the views and the terrific host Adrian. We loved our happy hour with house made hors d'oeuvres and a nice wine. We had fun talking with the other guests watching the sun... More

We literally just showed up here without a reservation because of the great reviews and were lucky to get an empty room for the night. Immediately the staff was SO sweet taking care of our every need - directing us around the small town, lending us bikes, driving us for dinner, etc. The room isn't luxury by any means, but... More

Visiting this quiet town makes for a great transition to the nature of a Panamanian visit from the North American norm. The hosts are fun and willing to facilitate a full enjoyment of their town. Did I mention their full embrace of Happy Hour at sunset over the western hills? They will direct you to whatever you would like to... More

We found this place through trip advisor. We called the Golden frog Inn only after we arrived to El Valle de Anton. Unfortunately there was only one suite available and only for one night. It was Carnival time and our chance to find accommodation in El Valle de Anton for the next days looked like impossible. As we arrived to... More

An absolutely heavenly accommodation in the volcano valley but with some elevation to enhance the view. Wonderful grounds with a nice pool and although we didn't see any golden frogs the toads come hang poolside at night. The owners and staff were beyond friendly and the inn was beyond idyllic. The hammock on the patio was also a huge plus.

I got my dad a night in The Golden Frog Inn, they were so kind from beginning to end helping my parents and just being really nice to them. They gave me the change to paid in advance by bank deposit so my parents didn't have to worry about it. When I called my dad to congratulate him on his... More

We arrived with the bus from Panama city and owner Larry offered a pickup from the centre of the village and immediately gave us a short tour. We did stay in suite #1, which has a kitchen, fabulous veranda which has seats and a hammock with beautiful views from there. Great room to stay in. The owners (Larry and Becky)... More

We loved every moment of our stay at the Golden Frog Inn. From making our reservation to checking out, Adrian, Larry and Becky (and the resident dogs and cats!) made our stay just perfect. The happy hour and h'ors de oeuvres they arranged for us gave us an opportunity to mingle with fellow guests and learn more about Larry, Becky... More
