“Golden times at the Golden Frog”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is best place to stay in the valley.
The owners and staff are brilliant, and are very knowledgable about the area.
The Golden Frog is a great place to relax and unplug. Happy hour lets you talk to the owners, staff and other visitors to share stories and experiences.
We were having our coffee on the deck one morning, listening to the birds, when a tucan flew by and landed in a tree next to our villa. Amazing! Even though we were there during rainy season, we had sunshine every morning, before enjoying the thunder and lightning show in the evening.
We will return soon!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, depends whether or not you want your own kitchen.

Our trip to Panama was split between Panama City, El Valle, and Playa el Palmar. Although we enjoyed all three experiences, The Golden Frog Inn was the most beautiful and relaxing home-we-wish-we-had. It is so gorgeous, peaceful, and comfortable. We would love to move in! Who could not love the happy hour with other guests and our hosts? Becky, Larry and Adrian were so friendly, interesting and helpful. In addition to delicious appetizers, Becky even made a tasty birthday cake for our daughter. There is so much to see and do in this cooler part of the country. The people we met, the food we ate, the hiking and zip lining, the swimming pool and nightly frog chorus ... we could have stayed for weeks. Highest of recommendations!

Room Tip: Having a room with a kitchenette made for a very relaxing morning. Breakfast and coffee on our own v...

Only six rooms makes you feel like your visiting your favorite uncle (the rich one)!
Located part way up the side of millions of years old volcano, you have nearly unspoiled view of nature. The rain or cloud forest is truly an experience in itself, and you have a ring side seat here.
The grounds are beautiful with flowers and birds galore. Your wakup call will be the birds.
This inn could be your destination without taking in the other sights in the area.
$70 for single, shared bath and kitchenette. Breakfast is fresh fruit, banana bread and coffee.
Adrian, the Argentina manager speaks fluengt English, and is very cordial and willing to help with your questions about the area. A 6:00 happy hour is on the house.
A very pleasant experience, highly recommended.

We arrive via bus from Panama City and Adrian picks us up. We get to the Golden Frog Inn and even though I had seen pictures online, the beauty here still takes your breath away. We were in Villa #2, which has a huge covered porch with patio furniture and a hammock. Very well appointed with a fully equipped kitchen. (The tv is mainly in Spanish).
We enjoyed the pool and did an awesome tour with Giovanni of El Valle Mountain tours, but did not take in any of the towns attractions.
This is a place for relaxing: sitting on the porch, drinking coffee and reading, while enjoying the sound of the birds and the constant breeze across the porch. As I looked around to the mountains and flowers that surrounded us, my dreams of living on the beach got a little fuzzy. This area is so peaceful. You can definitely feel God here.

My husband and I stayed at the Golden Frog Inn for just one night on March 22, 2014. Believe what other reviewers say. This a lovey place, impeccably clean and very well managed. The views are amazing and we wished we would have stayed longer and more time to explore this lovely area.

Except for the bed, all was excellent about this place, the quiet and beautiful location and grounds, nice pool, little social hour, place to cook or just fix a bite, etc. the TV was way high and hard to watch but we didn't really care. The bed was not too great but the personal patio space and all the rest was so nice. You want to have a car here

The estate is an incredible valley property, and owners Becky and Larry have given it additional personal touches. Feels like your home in the corner of the jungle. They are very helpful with guest information to enhance travel experience. They are passionate about their move to panama and birds and animals. Fresh flowers in suite, a snack in fridge and happy hour in the main house all make for a very special experience.

Room Tip: The daily market and several supermarkets make self catering easy. But there are lots of dining opti...
