I was told that it would be difficult to find the Golden Frog at night - and it certainly was - but once morning broke we found that we had arrived at wonderful, quaint inn in an eco-paradise. We found that Kim, Petr, Alan and the rest of the staff were very hospitable and made our week-long visit a delight.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on a birdwatching tour of Panama's key sites.The hotel has a decidedly free and easy approach allowing guests to make themselves comfortable according to their own requirements, which is most unusual and charming. The hotel is set on a lush green hillside on the outskirts of town amidst lovely well-tended gardens.... More

All the staff at the Golden Frog were very nice and helpful. I completely enjoyed my stay there and extended it another day. I especially enjoyed being invited to join the expat meeting being hosted by the Golden Frog staff Friday night. The included breakfast was great, the room was very good. I hope to return to El Valle again... More

We enjoyed our suite, the view of the beautiful gardens, the breakfast, Happy Hour on the patio and the peaceful setting. The staff was very helpful and friendly. One afternoon a tropical downpour was in full progress when we drove up to the Inn after a day of hiking and birding. Petr (the manager) ran out to our car with... More

I visited this tropical oasis on a quiet weekend in the rainy season - mid June - and because it was relatively quiet I did have the chance to spend some time with the very personable and accomplished manager Petr and his trusty Happy Hour sidekick Kim. I am a person who feels uncomfortable when treated as an important guest,... More

Great visit for a great price. Very friendly staff, and They do need to do something about their sweet, unruly puppies, who might turn some people off. An unexpected bonus was the hummingbird sitting on her nest right outside our bedroom window! A little hard to find but that added to the mystic.

Heavenly! Wonderful food, ambience and super friendly/ helpful hosts. The grounds are lovely, the scale is perfect and service is top-notch. El Valle is beautiful and the owner can recommend activities tailored to you. We really enjoyed the Happy Hour and breakfast (included). Dinner is also offered (additional) and excellent. Recommend the full unique experience highly.

We started our holiday in Panama City. After a drive of approximate 4 hours we arrived in the beautiful Valle de Anton. Host Peter provided us with a very warm welcome, including a bottle of wine and two cold beers (celebrating the 25 anniversary of our parents). The environment around the Golden Frog is amazing, beautiful birds, flowers and in... More
