Fabulous, I went with my children and my wife, and had a blast. Great food and drink. We played pool, ping pong, and in the morning, we used the banana boat, and kayack, it was great. There were decent people, there were no fights or problems with anyone, it was nice to get away from the everyday world and live in another world with your family. The natural surroundings are beautiful too. I would recommend it.
This hotel can be found in the mountains of El Valle de Anton, From here you can see paradise that is less than 2 hr distance from here, and there is the first accommodation and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well equipped. There are cabins for families and a beautiful home spread over 2 floors. All amenities are available. All rooms have hot water, ceiling fan, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, DIRECTV. Here you can enjoy a hearty breakfast. This hotel is by English and Spanish speakers.
Panama has changed more than any other Central American nation in the past 10 years, and we recognized precious little on our most recent trip which we remembered from our first trip here. One thing we did find unchanged, though, was the Hotel Don Pepe, one of the cheaper places in El Valle and certainly the best positioned. While the prices have risen, of course, you still get big clean rooms with TV and hot water, and we enjoyed free coffee on the terrace and the upstairs open-air lounge. Downstairs is an OK restaurant and a large artisans' shop, and out back is a caged parrot who can be coaxed to repeat a word or two of Spanish.
