“relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2010

This review is long overdue since we stayed at this hotel in Sept. 2009. We just want to let the world know that we enjoyed our stay at this small but well designed , well situated, very cozy inn on Main Street, in the middle of everyone's needs. My husband and I just wanted a place to relax for two days and we found it. The mud spring was fun to walk to and experience. The drive from and back to Panama City was enjoyable(we took the bus back and enjoyed the panoramic views).
Most of all the service from the owners was first rate, from the rooms to the tasty breakfasts which we enjoyed from the front patio. They even had umbrellas for us when it rained!
We did not have a chance to talk to them enough but I'm pretty sure they have wonderful stories to tell about Anton Valley, which is, we think, a magical place all its own.
Thanks, Earl and Les, for a great time!
From Monrovia, California

I recently spent four nights at the Anton Valley Hotel. The hotel is small and comfortable. My room was spic and span clean every day. I was delighted by the special touches of the housekeeping staff. Each day I arrived back at my room I found a wonderful creature (e.g. an elephant) made from towels and small decorative items on my bed and even in the bathroom. Sure put a smile on my face. Breakfast at the hotel is excellent and the lunch/dinner restaurant, Bruschetta's offers fine dining.

The hotel is well located for travelers who do not have a car. I could walk to most major sites. Earle knows the area well and gives helpful advice about getting around. By the way, do visit the zoo, El Nispero. The grounds are gloriously beautiful and some of the exhibits are fascinating.

A special note. Earle and Les devote their own resources to the special health care needs of the town's female street dogs. I feel in love with a dog named Mama who shows up each morning for breakfast and the loving attention of the hotel staff. Very nice.

The hotel does not need a business center. Right across the street is the town's library which has inexpensive internet every day of the week except Sunday.

We stayed at Anton Valley for two nights at the beginning of our two week trip to Panama - it was by far one of our favorite spots in the entire country. Earle and Les have done an amazing job designing and building this gorgeous inn with a beautiful garden, lovely decor, and a tasty restaurant right next door. I would absolutely recommend staying there - you can't beat it!

Because the Anton Valley Hotel is on the main drag is what makes this the perfect place to stay. The main drag is where you can come and go, get to where you want with a short walk or a taxi, and be part of what El Valle de Anton is about. Situated across from a wonderful bibliotec with 25 internet cubbys, right next to a beautiful church, down the street from shopping and neat experiences is all part of this hotel. Really loved the stay, took the $7.00 a couple local bus back to Panama City for departure was a real trip experience. Watch out for a good time and this Hotel is where to start!! Honest!! Oh, and by the way, watch out for the great restaurant attached. It's great!

We had been advised ahead of time that we would probably be bored in El Valle after 4 days and several people suggested that we might not want to be in the center of town. However, Main Street was perfect for us. We traveled by bus like the natives and found everything to be convenient. The restaurant in the hotel was too good--we had trouble getting a table at busy times. We also went to several recommended restaurants out of town by taxi. A little store kitty-corner across the street had ice cream cones for 35 cents, there was a wonderful bakery several doors away, there was a laundromat next door (plus the hotel did laundry) and you could use a computer across the street. Our room was small but there very a variety of places in and out of the hotel to sit and read (or whatever) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean, we were surprised by cleverly folded towels daily, and the feeling was like a large extended family.

Could not say too much about how great this hotel is. Ealre was a wonderful host and helped us plan the remainder of our trip. The water IS HOT. It just has to run for a few minutes some mornings :) Located centrally for hiking, biking, and shopping - a car is not needed if you stay here. For us, 3-4 days in Valle de Anton is suffiecient, but could have stayed a week and been happy. The hotel resuraunt 'Bruchettta' was the best in town.

We changed our itinerary at the last minute and decided to head to El Valle for the week end. We were only able to stay at the Anton Valley Hotel one night. But, we had a very nice stay. It is very central and close to the market, and the clay baths. The restaurant located next to the hotel was very busy with great food.
