We were only in El Valle for two days; one night at Hotel Don Pepe. We found the hotel to be clean and very friendly, centrally located. We would happily return. The people we came in contact with were helpful and kind, offering service above and beyond what we expected. The stores in the area have all you need at prices that are very affordable. Standing on the balcony of the hotel we could watch the fog roll in, gaze at the Sleeping Princess, enjoy the lovely views. The farmer's market was full and enticing and we were only there for two weekdays.
