After a week in Panama City, we escaped the noise and traffic to visit El Valle. We stayed at the Golden Frog Inn, and I can't say enough good things about it. Finding anything in El Valle, even with directions and a GPS is daunting. When we finally found the Inn, my daughter and I collapsed on the comfortable furniture...

Stayed one night in, from the photos on the Inn's website, must be their smallest room. If we had not been sharing the room with so many cockroaches, ants, and assorted other insects we would have had more space. I know this is Panama, I have lived here for several years, but we had fewer bugs in our tent in...

The hotel was fabulous. The grounds were stunning, the food terrific (they were so helpful in making vegetarian food) and the room was very comfortable. Petr and Kim were absolutely fantastic. Thanks for a great stay!

Stayed here while visiting El Valle. This is a delightful place in the mountains, surrounded with plants and flowers. There is a multitude of birds, all singing away especially early in the morning and in the evening. The room was spacious with a small kitchen, the bed could be a bit more comfortable. Service was friendly, breakfast was compact, and...

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....

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....

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...
