This B&B was a peaceful and relaxing lodging located in a beautiful setting. The B&B consisted of the main house and several smaller lodgings for guests. Our room was quite large and very clean, with a nice patio area in front. The patio had a sitting area with chairs, as well as a hammock, allowing us to relax outdoors. There is also a pool between our house and the main house. The landscaped grounds are beautiful - there was a team of gardeners working on them during the day. At night, many frogs come out (watch where you walk) and we saw a sloth in the tree behind the house.
The owners were happy to recommend several restaurant choices in town. We were served a nice breakfast that included fruit, bread, omelets and sausage. We also did a beautiful rainforest hike that starts within walking distance the B&B. There is a hike up the hill (10-15 min one way) next to the property that supposedly has spectacular views but we passed due to the fog in the area. The only negative was that our room (number two) was not overly bright so beware if you are looking for a sunny space. The weather was very damp and it was hard to dry our clothes but the owner dried our shoes for us free of charge.
We would recommend the Golden Frog for those looking for a quiet, peaceful environment in El Valle.
