We stayed at Los Mandarinos in December 2007 for two nights. It is billed as the best restaurant and accomodation in El Valle.
I would say that from an accommodation perspective I hope there is better in El Valle. Our room was like something you would find in a basic Greek resort - no-frills, not very clean and uninspiring. Fortunately it is not too expensive, but after one night I wanted to check out and go elsewhere. Be warned - do not expect luxury or anything close to it.
The restaurant (Casa Lourdes) was slightly better, but still not fantastic. Again, the prices aren't too expensive, but I expected better from a restaurant billed by one of the guide books as potentially one of the best in Panama. No way. The first time I ate dinner there the food was served cold. Service is hit and miss. Breakfast was a bit of a disaster. The second time (yes, I went back) was actually much better, but still not worthy of the billing it receives. I ate better everywhere else in Panama.
Bottom line - on my next trip to El Valle I will not be staying at Los Mandarinos.
