We stayed here in June 2019 and were recently looking at photos from our trip and remembered we had forgotten to write a review of this lovely place. It is set within the most beautiful gardens where we spotted all sorts of birds and other animals. Each cabana is cosy and comfortable we all slept really well waking to the sounds of the birds each morning was very pleasant. The owners were friendly and helpful, it was funny bumping into them twice at restaurants in town. We really hope to one day return to Panama and stay here again!
we loved this place. we arrived just pas nine because of horrible traffic from the city and they was nice enough to great us even thought we were a bit passed the hour... the cabins were really clean and the site was great. The owners were not there but the lady there was nice. it was really calm and quiet. The site is really nice. really great place
Dennis and Mireya are lovely hosts who jmake you feel welcome and at home. The cabanas are situated in a beautiful and large garden, full of nice places to sit and enjoy the birds and flowers. De rooms are nice and clean and if you want you can kook in a kitchenet. We had a beautiful walk with Mario to watch the birds and several other very nice hikes. Also there are good restaurants in El Valle. We recommend this place as one of the most beautiful of Panama.
We were greeted by friendly host e at the entrance to the big garden which looks like a botanical garden! Lots of trees, shrubs, flowers and singing birds - a real green paradise! Bungalows are set among the greenery. Our room was spacious, with 2 comfortable beds and bathroom attached. I loved paintings on the walls (birds, flowers...) which can be seen in the other rooms too. Staying with Dennis and Mireya is like visiting friends! They are so attentive, talkative, and they know a lot about nature, El Valle and have lots of suggestions what to do for a few days. Mireyas brother is a bird specialist, so if you are here for birdwatching he is the one to hire for a tour! Breakfast is simple but tasteful - we tried local coffe from the families plants. The bungalows are in a walkable distance from the town and close to some waterfalls. If you dont have your own transportation Dennis is always prepared to give you a lift.…
I worried a little, before arriving at Cabanas Potosi, because it is a little out of town (about 1 km), and I was travelling by public transportation, but Dennis' free shuttle service happily overcame that problem. I also was concerned, being a solo traveller, about loneliness, but I was warmly received by thoughtful, gregarious hosts who created impromptu events, like a yoga class and a wine & snacks get-together for all guests. As they say: 'You arrive a stranger, and you leave as a friend'. Thank you, Dennis and Mireya. You were one of the highlights of my trip to Panama.
