This cute and immaculate little hotel in the heart of El Valle de Anton is a very good value. The rooms are spotless and cheerful, and the location is excellent (especially if you'd like to be in town in el Valle). We rented bikes and tooled around, enjoyed sweets from the bakery next door, hiked in the jungle and swam in the river, and shopped at the mercado. There are many things to do in and around el Valle, so the location of this hotel is great for people who like to be in the middle of the action.
The little restaurant at Anton Valley (called Bruschetta) is lovely and we enjoyed several good meals there.
The only reason we give the sleep quality a 4/5 is because our room was right by the kitchen; it was a little loud at night and in the morning with dishes clanking and music playing. I think a room at the back of the hotel would probably be more quiet.

For the price you absolutely can't beat it! Recommended, and would definitely stay there again.

I have lived in Anton's Valley for three years and I have eaten dinner at this hotel many times. I have always been completely satisfied with the food. I have also met the hotel managers, Les and Earle, and it is obvious that they are willing to go the extra mile for their guests. Les and Earle and their wonderful staff have put their heart into even the smallest details so that your stay will be enjoyable and unforgettable. I highly recommend this hotel!

This is a lovely little hotel, with a very helpful and accomodating staff. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the rock wall shower with skylight was fantastic. So were the animals made out of rolled up towels that the wonderful cleaning staff left for our kids. Strongly recommend.

We absolutely loved our stay in the Anton Valley hotel. The hotel is conveniently located near the center of the small village. The rooms are lovely and nicely decorated, the setting is gorgeous, with the mountains as backdrop and the cosy patio with an abundance of flowers. The reception was very friendly, they gave all the information we needed. The attached restaurant was so good, we didn't even bother to go looking for anything else. Lots of things to do in the neigbourhood.
Thank you, Earl, Les and your team to make us feel very walcome and to give us a beautiful home away from home!!!!

I cannot say enough great things about the Anton Valley Hotel. My fiance and I spent four nights there and had a fantastic time. The staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants and things to do in the area, particularly things I would never have found like the delicious homemade ice cream in the pharmacy across the street. We truly felt welcomed at home. The rooms were cute, clean and well appointed.

The location is also a huge plus. I didn't realize it until getting there, but a lot of the other hotels are a lot further off the beaten path to get to attractions. The Anton Valley Hotel is a close walk to the zipline, hot springs, zoo and restaurants.

The Bruschetta restaurant that shares space in the hotel is also well worth the visit.

We stayed there for the 4th of July weekend. Owners are very unfriendly, but their staff is very friendly.
The hotel is cute and quiet even though they are in the main road. The town is quiet, you wake up w/ birds singing in your balcony.
Their beds: Queen as their website states, it's actually a full size. Our friends stayed in the twin bed and they were smaller than the actual twin that they are used to, their feet were hanging out of the bed. They were 5.10 , 5.11 in height. so we are not talking about giants here.
You will really have a good time,if you don't have to deal with the unfriendly owners and only with their staff.

AntonValleyPanama, Owner at Anton Valley Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded 17 July 2010

We were anticipating this review. Being this is the only contribution this reviewer has made on Tripadvisor, we hope that readers will recognize that some people do submit less than favorable reviews as a means of retribution.

Regarding our bed sizes, the queen beds measure 60” x 80” and the twins measure 39” by 75”. According to our research, our room types are not misrepresented on our website.

We appreciate the comments related to the friendliness of our staff which is validated by so many other reviews that we have received. Additionally we feel that their success is a measure of our success.

We regret that as owners we were perceived as unfriendly. We suspect that this was due the following items related to this particular guest stay:

1.) We had received noise complaints from other guests past the hour of 10:00 P.M., so we ask that consideration to their comfort level be given. We do not condone late night drinking and loud conduct in the hotel lobby.
2.) There are Panamanian government mandated discounts that apply to regular rates only and cannot be combined or applied to already discounted prices. All guests are supplied with an email confirmation detailing the nightly room rate and total costs in advance. This guest received the maximum discount prescribed by Panamanian law, but at check out, felt entitled to more.
3.) While boarding the bus en route to Panama City, the staff did inform the guest that the hotel’s umbrellas were not a complimentary amenity for them to keep.

As owners, we have to make decisions that maximize the comfort for the majority of the guests, provide quality service and give the best value. We’re proud of the record that we’ve established and regret that this guest felt otherwise.
