We stayed here in July as a family of four (2 adults + 2 young children) for one night mid-July. pros - really lovely units that really have everything for a longer stay. - the banana bread & fruit was a lovely touch - particularly as we arrived late in the evening and didn't have time to pick up something...

Becky, Larry and Adrian were fantastic hosts at The Golden Frog Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to their Inn and the El Valley area. We were there with our two children, age 14 and 10, both saying they really enjoyed the Inn. We had two rooms- one for us and one for the kids which was perfect. Right away... More

This is best place to stay in the valley. The owners and staff are brilliant, and are very knowledgable about the area. The Golden Frog is a great place to relax and unplug. Happy hour lets you talk to the owners, staff and other visitors to share stories and experiences. We were having our coffee on the deck one morning,... More

Our trip to Panama was split between Panama City, El Valle, and Playa el Palmar. Although we enjoyed all three experiences, The Golden Frog Inn was the most beautiful and relaxing home-we-wish-we-had. It is so gorgeous, peaceful, and comfortable. We would love to move in! Who could not love the happy hour with other guests and our hosts? Becky, Larry... More

Only six rooms makes you feel like your visiting your favorite uncle (the rich one)! Located part way up the side of millions of years old volcano, you have nearly unspoiled view of nature. The rain or cloud forest is truly an experience in itself, and you have a ring side seat here. The grounds are beautiful with flowers and... More

We arrive via bus from Panama City and Adrian picks us up. We get to the Golden Frog Inn and even though I had seen pictures online, the beauty here still takes your breath away. We were in Villa #2, which has a huge covered porch with patio furniture and a hammock. Very well appointed with a fully equipped kitchen.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Golden Frog Inn for just one night on March 22, 2014. Believe what other reviewers say. This a lovey place, impeccably clean and very well managed. The views are amazing and we wished we would have stayed longer and more time to explore this lovely area.

Except for the bed, all was excellent about this place, the quiet and beautiful location and grounds, nice pool, little social hour, place to cook or just fix a bite, etc. the TV was way high and hard to watch but we didn't really care. The bed was not too great but the personal patio space and all the rest... More

The estate is an incredible valley property, and owners Becky and Larry have given it additional personal touches. Feels like your home in the corner of the jungle.

Moderately priced small hotel/B & B with small pool and individual cooking facilities. The owners host a nightly happy hour which is a good way to get info about local attractions, hikes and Panama. The cooking facilities were very well stocked with stove, M/W and large fridge, coffee maker/grinder and linens/dishes/cookware. El Valle has both one of the largest markets... More
