Hotel Rincon Vallero
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I was very dissapointed when I reach the place was not that I saw in online when making my reservation, the place is so dirty and smells bad and the small zoo is so dirty too and also the swimming pool was dirty and was not allowed to used after 6pm and the jacuzzi was not working and also dirty and the service was not good, besides the food that we ate in the restaurant was horrible. The pictures that is in their websit is all fake.

Hotel Rincon Vallero is one of the properties in Panama which defies a simple explanation. If you have a young family, it is a very good option, as the property has a lot of kid appeal -- ducks, bunnies, sheep, various birds, several little ponds (including two in the restaurant area). The place is definitely run down, though. My wife's joke on the bed sheets was "They were so old they were soft." Food is average (and food service was slow even by Panama standards, which means literally 40 minutes between ordering and getting served breakfast).

Room Tip: Probably do not need to pay for the suites -- we stayed in a standard room and it was plenty large.

I would not recommend the hotel, and I would not stay at it again. The lovely garden and the striking landscape are misleading to what is to come; dirty room, old beads that smell of the generations that used them, the rooms stink from over use of detergents, yet the dirt and neglect is everywhere. Electricity was out on a regular base, no hot water, which was maybe OK, yet there were also periods with no water at all. The promised game room – was broken old tables that could not be used. We still had some hope for the food, yet, we had to leave it on the plate, untouched; great disappointment. What a waste of the local products.

Room Tip: Take another hotel

This is not your typical American hotel. For a hotel in the Panamanian country side it is very nice. Family friendly with caged birds, rabbits, chickens and even a goat. We stayed in number 1 which was a suite. Very cool bathroom which was all made out of stone. The shower felt like you we're bathing outside. Had a separate living room area with a mini bar. Didn't really use it since we spent most of our time outside in the garden and pool area. Staff is very accommodating and friendly and food was also very good. Out of all the hotels in El Valle, this was the nicest one.

Room Tip: If you want quiet ask for a room in the back.

This is without a doubt one of the worst hotels I have stayed in! It looks like a gaily painted single story prison block. The staff are useless. There is no bar. Service stops at 2100. You cannot check out before 0900. Oh and the place is over run by a menagerie of animals and birds. The latter, cr+p al over the grounds so you walk it into your room!
It gets better. The roofs of the individual 'cells' are in true Tenko fashion, made of corrugated tin. This is waterproof, which is handy for a roof, but acts like a drum for every falling object and flora rubbing against it.
So with the rain (yes it rains here in the summer) and the force 6 gale (yup, apparently its always windy) the tin roof was kept busy throughout the night,
Now we come to the bluddi cockerel that kicked off at 0430 and was still going at 0730 when we checked out having not slept a wink!
Oh and to top it all it cost $90 a night!!!!
treat yourself. Stay somewhere else!

Room Tip: pick another hotel

my wife and i spent two nights in this nice family type hotel in el valle.
No, this is not a Marriot or Hilton, but there you will not find yourselves in the middle of nature, and yes there might be a spider and a cockroach in nature now and again. The diners were brilliant, breakfast more than sufficient and a room for 70 $ a night Breakfast included, with a small pool and a sauna ( OK it will not go up to 90 degrees). This is a place where you should and deffinately can enjoy life. Go exploring the region from here and get aquainted to the staff, they are extremely nice and helpfull.

Room Tip: we had room no 2 have not seen others but this was more than OK

We visited El Valle de Anton in december 2012 and stayed for two nights at Hotel Rincon Vallero. During our vacation in Panama we stayed at eight different accomodations and this was the worst one.

Our room (no. 7) was large and dark. We didn't think the bathroom was very clean. Just outside our bathroom window there was a nest of cockroaches (!). Although there was a partition sometimes the cockroaches fell into the bathroom shower area through a hole in the partition. It totally freaked us out. It was really scary catching them to throw them outside (although they tried to come back through the large gap underneath the outside door). Further we had a centipede in the room, it came from under the bed. We understand that sometimes it's hard to keep the 'wildlife' out but at least provide a mosquito net...

There is a large garden but this is not suitable for people who feel sorry for captured animals (like us). There's a small swimming pool and there are some chairs and tables where you can relax.

The restaurant looks nice. The food is allright, service is slow and after you have been seated it can take some time before they've noticed you're there. Breakfast is good and the lady serving it is very nice. There is wifi available in the restaurant area.
