This truly is paradise in the beautiful valley, El Valle. I had a "studio" casita near the swimming pool. I galley style kitchen for cooking. Large deck perfect for bird watching. The grounds are stunning with fresh fruits. I had mangos every day. TV and wifi included. The host and hostess make the stay very comfortable and fun. Great people.

My husband and I are renting an apartment (#2) from Becky and Larry for 6 weeks and know that when we leave it will feel as gut-wrenching as leaving home. Everything about The Golden Frog Inn is fantastic; the early morning bird songs, the incredibly beautiful and colourful gardens, the perfect temperature pool to relax in, the casual but well-furnished...

We really enjoyed our stay in this B&B. The views are stunning, there is a nice pool and good kitchen facilities. The hosts are really friendly and helpful. The happy hour with drinks and snacks are the perfect opportunity to ask any question you have about El Valle. The banana bread you get in the morning is one of the... More

We loved it here! It was great to escape the heat of Panama City and spend time relaxing in the hammocks and pool at the Golden Frog. The complimentary cerveza at happy hour and breakfast banana bread were a delight. We hiked to square trees, went bird watching, visited the wonderful local market (which is open every day) and enjoyed... More

This was our second trip to El Valle. It is a lovely town located in the crater of a volcano with beautifull surroundings. We were advised to stay in this hotel and it was really wonderfull. When we arrived with the car in the late afternoon, we were welcomed by Becky and Larry with the daily happy hour. All guests... More

El Valle is a restful getaway from the noise and bustle of Panama City, and this inn is a terrific place to stay while you're there. It is small (five rooms), quiet, and very comfortable. Everything was clean and lovingly maintained. We had the largest room (#3), which had a good size kitchen/dining area, a main bedroom area, and separate... More

We were a family of 9 so we took over the whole place. We had a wonderful two night stay at the hotel. We loved it so much that we ended up not doing too much and just ended up relaxing on hammocks and the pool. The place was very clean and the hosts were wonderful. If you are a... More

This is a most perfect spot tucked away in one of the most beautiful areas in Panama. Beck and Larry are wonderful hosts. The rooms are spacious and appointed beautifully. The amenities are great. Happy hour a pleasant time on the porch of the main house. There can't be a nicer spot in this valley.

Probably the best option in town. We were surprised by breakfast from the local market (banana bread and fruit) and a social happy hour in the evening where we could meet the owners and other guests. Becky, Larry, and Avrian were so helpful and friendly. We borrowed bikes and they also provide pick and and drop off in town at... More

The accommodation is in a beautiful garden setting with great views of the surrounding hills. There is a nice pool great for relaxing after hiking. The room we had comprised of a good sized bedroom, bathroom, well equipped kitchen and very pleasant terrace. The bed was comfortable, however the room would benefit from heavier curtains to reduce the light. We... More
