“This hotel is a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2008

Everyone that goes to Panama must go to El Valle and stay at the Anton Valley Hotel. Our four night stay here was so memorable and made the trip so much more enjoyable. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly and gave us some great tips and advice on what to do in town and nearby. The breakfast every morning was fantastic - esp the french toast and fruit platter. The rooms are simple and clean and nicely decorated. El Valle was a quaint little town where there is a short half-day hike up to la india dormida, small hot springs, the zoo and some great restaurants. It is a short drive to Santa Clara and some beautiful beaches too. If you want to get away from the city, this is the place to go to relax and meet some locals.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at the Anton Valley Hotel, and it was a unique and wonderful experience!

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were freshly decorated and immaculately clean!

They also have a restaurant in the hotel, and we highly recommend the "langostinos" (or extra large shrimp) that they saute in butter with fresh chopped garlic served over a bed of pineapple rice with peppers. It's to die for!

This little gem is located in the town of El Valle, which was quaint and quiet...a great place to relax, take in the beautiful scenery and simply get away from it all!

We can't wait to go back!

We risked not making reservations when we went to ElValle de Anton and relied on road signs going into town to find a place to stay. The Anton Valley Hotel sign caught our eye so we decided to check that place out. Unfortunately, we only had two nights to stay, but this was far the most memorable part of our 14 day vacation in Panama. When we drove up, the front of the hotel looked lifke a postcard chalet landscaped with beautiful beds of flowers in full bloom. In the lobby we were warmly greeted by Rodolfo with a welcome handshake. He spoke about as much English as we did Spanish, but it didn't matter as a true spirit of hospitality spoke for itself. Our first impression we thought this place was going to cost $$$, but what we got was the best value for our money. Our queen room was beautifully decorated. We had quite a surprise when returning from dinner. While away, they had put robes with hibiscus blooms on our beds. The room lights were dimmed and our beds turned down. It made us feel really special. Breakfast couldn't have been better. I had a Belgian waffle with walnuts and cinnamon for less than $3.00. The linen napkins added the "extra touch". This hotel seemed to have a lot of extra touches that we haven't experienced before. There's a hugh Sunday Market there and we were able to just walk to that. The thermal ponds were also within walking distance. We loved staying there, everyone was so nice they made you feel like family. I'm not sure when we will be going back there, but I do know that we will be going back.

  • Liked — It was a very unique. The people made you feel like family, they were so friendly. The extra touches you seldom if ever see.
  • Disliked — Even though we didn't need it, it didn't have central air, but I don't think any of the hotels there had it.
