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

Echoing the other rave reviews, this is a great property -- beautifully maintained, wonderful grounds and views, stellar hospitality. Thoroughly enjoyed El Valle, and staying at the Golden Frog was a brilliant, serendipitous choice.

Beautifully kept Inn. Hosts were great, room was huge & had everything we could need to cook with and feel at home. Even the other guests seemed cool, like this place just attracts good people! Love how they do happy hour instead of breakfast. Who needs overcooked eggs where no one interacts - instead here you meet other travelers over... More

The owners of the Inn Larry and Becky made us feel like family. They let us know where the good spots in town were for shopping and eating. Larry and Becky thank you very much and have a very Merry Christmas.
