We stayed at Golden Frog Inn for 3 nights. We loved the room and how much room we had plus the nice kitchen. It was a perfect location to relax and enjoy birding in the El Valle area. Becky arranged for a wonderful bird guide for us. He helped us find the most amazing birds. Loved the happy hour with...

We arrived at the Inn late afternoon, on our first day in Panama. It took no time at all to correctly predict this was going to be the highlight stay of the entire trip:) I cannot imagine a more pleasing-to-the-senses way of falling asleep than to the sound of tropical insects, frogs, night birds… and to the welcomed breeze floating...

It rained the whole 3 days we were in El Valle and boy are we glad we picked this place! Not a bad place to be hold up! We did ask for the smallest room, and it was small, but w the grounds being so expansive there was plenty of places to stretch out and read and enjoy relaxing. Happy...

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Golden Frog Inn. I can only echo the many nice comments about Becky, Larry, and Adrian. They were gracious hosts and treated us like family. The landscaping and birdwatching (right from our patio!) were fantastic. We cancelled our trip to the beach and stayed an extra day! There are not enough good...

My husband and I stayed for one night in April...would have loved to stay longer. Beautiful views, clean room at a reasonable price (Room 5 for $60), and the owners Becky and Larry, plus the manager Adrian were very helpful and friendly.

W.r.t. to all the positive reviews, for us they were all true! We loved our stay at the Golden Frog Inn. We had room #1 for 3 nights.

The hotel does have a great mountain view but that's it. Just spent the worst 4 days of my life. Will never return. Staff is nice only upon arrival. Was not told a car is absolute for the area.

I’m sorry this family found Panama so difficult. They called to request arrival a day earlier because they were unhappy with the hotel they were in (with has an excellent reputation). We accommodated them. We arranged pick up transportation from the other hotel. This included a stop for lunch and shopping. They requested a night jungle hike with a local...

We stayed 3 nights in room 5, which is the more budget friendly room with 2 single beds, an attached bathroom and shared kitchen. As backpackers we had a wonderful time. The hotel is very quiet and peaceful with great views, the surrounding area can easily keep you busy for a couple of days. The 6 o'clock happy hour is...
