Lovely place nestled in the valley overlooking the beautiful volcanic mountains. Multi Lingual, charming and extremely accommodating innkeeper Petr is a gracious host with a keen interest in his guests having a great time and learning all about El Valle. A very special spot with a diverse group of world travelers who got to mingle at a special daily happy...

We stayed at the Golden Frog with our 5 kids. There is a happy hour with snacks and drinks where you can mingle with other visitors. The breakfast is great and portion big. The staff was helpful as we had questions on different hikes and attractions. The atmosphere was relax and friendly.

Great place to get away to. 2.5 hours from Panama City. Easy drive by rent a car. Happy hour, yoga, breakfast and bicycles included. Enjoyed our stay in Room number 1. Petr even drove us to town to get more bikes. Petr, Gary and Jacov will make you feel welcome. All around Gem!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Golden Frog Inn, the only disappointment being that I was able to stay for only one night. I could happily have stayed for much longer. I entirely echo the highly positive comments made by other reviewers. My room and bed were most comfortable, wi-fi connectivity was fine and the freshly-prepared breakfast was excellent....

The location is spectacular, as you couldn't ask for a more lovely setting. Unfortunately, something feels amiss here. The cottage while okay, did not seem clean. The towels and bedding all had the musty not quite right smell. The facility offers no amenities for the bathroom and the hot water was lacking. The staff did try to fix the hot...

Thank you for the review! We apologize for the power outage, sometimes it affects the pump for the water pressure which in turn affects the water heater. We have talked to our housekeeping staff about the issues during your visit. Hope to see you again soon at our property soon!

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...

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...
