The Golden Frog Inn is situated on beautiful grounds with stunning views of the mountains in the distance. It offers modern, comfortable accommodations. It has a beautiful swimming pool which we took full advantage of.
The owners, Larry and Becky are extremely friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the area. Each evening at 6:00 they host a happy hour for their guests which proved to be a very convivial and enjoyable time. Their three friendly dogs and their macaw add to the festivities.
Adrian, their Argentine manager, is extremely enthusiastic and helpful.
Through the Golden Frog we hired Mario Bernal as a birding guide for two days. His great enthusiasm, love for his environment, and deep knowledge of the local birds made our experience with him a high point of our trip.
We stayed in room #3 which is described as a two bedroom apartment. The way it is laid out, however, make it more suitable for a family than two couples who want a bit of privacy.
We should also note that the Golden Frog does not serve meals (we did have a full kitchen). It is a long walk to town,especially after dark, and is best suited for those who have their own transportation. There are several good dining options in El Valle with Casa de Lourdes being one of the best restaurants in Panama.More
