“Amazing Deal and Sweet Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2009

This is clean, basic, and delightful. I would return any day. The two gentlemen owner's are exceptionally helpful: recommending restaurants, hikes, and car routes. We enjoyed tea on the covered front porch during a light rain, watching the local community bicycle passed. It is delightful, extremely affordable, and a sweet town. Surprisingly, there were several good restaurants.

This hotel is an excellent balance between price an quality. Having traveled extensively in Central and South America this is the kind of hotel I would recommend anyone to stay in. It does not pretend to be 5 star but the owners and staff provide everything than one should care for. The service was impeccable, the rooms were clean and the breakfast delicious.
I arrive with my two dogs and they were welcomed which was fantastic for me. The manager absolutely went the extra mile to help out and all of the staff were friendly with broad smiles. What a difference to other hotel experiences in Panama!
If I could rate this as a five star hotel I would purely on the service and attention to detail. It is not the biggest, nor the most sophisticated, but it is clean, affordable, the staff are wonderful and greet you with an honest smile.

This is a hidden gem (well I guess its no longer hidden since its ranked so high on trip advisor). The hotel is small enough and staff attentive enough to feel like a B&B. The location is right in the heart of town, walking distance to everything. The rooms are very comfortable, great bed, SatTV, nice bathroom - exceptionally clean. The house pets were sweet (dogs, bird). Did I mention how superb the staff was?? ;) We very much enjoyed our stay and would head back to this hotel if we return to El Valle.

We were very impressed with the staff at Anton Valley Hotel. We arrived in a drizzle and had immediate help with our bags the minute we got off the bus by Rodolfo. From the first moment of our arrival to the last minute of our departure, we were treated like Royal guests! We have never stayed at any establishment that made us feel so welcome. We loved the attention to detail like the animal towel creations on our bed each day and the delicious breakfasts. We will miss Clarissa's smiling face and Rosa's good cooking! Earl and Les were fantastic hosts and very helpful with information. We would recommend this to anyone that has never visited this area. If you come during the rainy season, be prepared for a daily shower or two or three! We are used to air conditioning in Florida for the humidity and had to get used to just fans for cooling. We were thankful that the temperatures were bearable.

This little hotel may surprise you when you step inside. From the tasteful lobby, the beautiful little breakfast room and the nice touches in the rooms, you know you have made a wise choice. The rooms included not only refrigerators but a pair of waffle weave robes to wear while you are there.

The modestly priced breakfasts are quite large and so good that we met locals who come there just to eat even though they could cook at home. The location of the hotel is right on the main street in El Valle, walking distance to the Artisan's Market and the small supermarket. We arrived in the rain and the proprietors even gave us umbrellas to use for our walk into town.

Earle and Les thoughtfully provided a map of the area, spending time to point out the things worth seeing, including the lovely zoo and the square trunk trees unique to the area. We also took their restaurant suggestions to heart and enjoyed the nearby Bruschetta's for very fresh and delicious food that was far less expensive than you would have expected for the quality and presentation.

To give you an idea of the level of service, when we arrived there was a problem with our door which was difficult to open. The very next day there was a new doorknob in place that worked perfectly.

The rooms are a little small, but the space is used effectively. in the bathroom, the hot water was plentiful (a rarity in Panama) but there are no outlets in the if you need to use a blow dryer or an electric shaver. My wife was able to do her hair in the room itself, but it was about the only little detail that was missed.

When you're there remember to visit with the birds outside and the two very friendly dogs as well.

Our two-night stay was truly memorable because of the superb staff that Earl and Les have. Rodolfo kept looking for us to give us information about El Valle and to share the legends of the India Dormida mountain. He was courteous and very friendly. Rosita is a lovely cook who embraced us as we were leaving as if she had always known us. She is sweet and has a great sense of humor. As for Clarisa, we cannot compliment her enough. We had not been able to meet up with another couple although we knew they were in El Valle and she literally put out a APB on them through the whole town. In less than an hour our friends were found and taken to a point where we finally met, thanks to Clarisa's efforts and phone calls to many people in town. That was impressive! She is forever smiling and willing to please. The hotel rooms are just beautifully decorated. Earl and Les, you have done a wonderful job with all the animal figures and color coordination. Congrats and we hope to see you again soon!
