The new owners have been in place for about a year and are beginning the transition from a B&B to more of a boutique hotel. Currently there are 7 rooms, at the end of the building project there will be 17, all with magnificent views of the area. In addition, while they now serve dinner for their guests, ( Panamanian...

Beautifully landscaped property with great views of the mountains. The staff is very helpful and take time to help you maximize your visit. If all things were equal, the property would get an excellent. Given that the area is less travelled than many sites in Panama, the entire area lacks the kind of properties I would call excellent.

We have just had the best time here. The staff are lovely and will help with anything you need. The food is delicious so you don't need to go far if you don't want to. We walked into the town most days and went to the zoo and hot pools. All quite easy to do. The views are out of...

We spent two nights here after 5 nights in Panama City. We travelled by bus both ways. Very easy to do but be prepared for some winding curves, fast driving and non-stop Spanish music. Prior to our arrival Petr was very reassuring about the ease of travelling around the community without a car and he was right. The resort is...

Petr is a very gracious host. This property is beautiful and very relaxing. Staff is very professional and friendly. Accommodations are as advertised. A gem in the mountains of El Valle. Breakfast was included and very tasty. Fresh fruits were perfect and food was prepared perfectly. The Golden Frog Inn was a highlight of our trip to Panama!

This is a very unique inn located near El Valle. The staff are most helpful. The manager/owner prepared a very tasty meal for us. The complimentary evening snacks were very good as was the home cooked breakfast. We were driven to the town and picked up also. Highly recommended.

Happy hour(s) is a great way to socialize. The golden frog offers wine and beer which you can drink from 18-20. The room was clean and the bed rather small for the two of us. The restaurant serves good dishes, especially the rapo viejo. The centre of El Valle is a 2.5 kilometers walk. There are no good restaurants in...
