We've stayed 5 nights at the Balboa Inn with our 1,5 years old boy.
The provided a travel baby cot for him, which was very nice. They also have a babychair.
The managers Mieke and Bill are really nice and can answer all your questions. Too bad that they smoke a lot, the smell and smoke is not very nice for non-smokers like us.
The room was a bit dark, but clean and cleaned every day. Breakfast was okay. The only thing we've missed was some coffee or tea options for in the evening, when our boy was in bed and we stayed in the common area with a book and the wifi.
The location is very good. It's quiet at night, you can walk to a few places nearby (Ancon Hill, Administration Building) and the rest is easily done with taxi's.
There are a few restaurants nearby, from which we found Niko's was especially good for us with our little one. It's a self serving restaurant, with different choices (also healthy food like rice, vegetables and some meat) and a bakery for breakfast or lunch.
